Stop by the Beauty Bus!

If you're in the city tomorrow you have to stop by the Beauty Bus in Lincoln Center, on Broadway between 67th and 68th Street!

Powered by Hair Room Service, the Beauty Bus celebrity stylists are armed with products from OSiS by Schwarzkopf Professional and NYX Cosmetics. They are also doing mini manicures with SinfulColors nail polish.

First I received a hair touch up by Katrina, a celeb stylist from hair Room Service. She straightened it with a super hot flat iron so it wouldn't curl up throughout the day from the humidity. She finished it off with OSiS hairspray for a soft hold. It out-lasted the humidity!

I also got a mini manicure from a Hair Room Service manicurist. I chose Smokin' by SinfulColor nail polish, which is part of their Fall collection. I went on a deep gray kick last year, and I think I'm going to follow suit this year. It just goes with so much!

Make sure to stop by and sign up for a free appointment. Treat yourself to a little pampering! 


John Frieda Makeover in NYC



This week I traveled to NYC for the experience of a lifetime. Thursday I was on set all day for a John Frieda makeover video shoot. And not only was I on set, I was participating! I was one of the five bloggers selected for a personalized beauty and style makeover by John Frieda and Glam Stylists.

I got to meet and receive a hair color and cut consultation (behind the scenes and on camera) with the amazingly talented Mr. Harry Josh, John Frieda Celebrity Stylist. I also got styled by Nola, Fashion Editor at Glam.com and India, Beauty Editor at Glam.com. Here is how the past few days played out…

Wednesday was filled with shopping, manicures and finally our initial hair consultation with Harry. Elisa from NYSpender.com, Heather from BehindtheLashes.com, Stef & Tyna from WeHeartThis.com and I all met with Harry individually. First, I have to say, Harry’s enthusiasm and energy is so contagious. He asked us if we had any limitations to what we would do with our hair and I was so mesmerized by him I just said ‘I’ll do anything!’

He talked to the other girls about the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour they should use and how he wanted his team to cut their hair. When he got to me, he decided he wanted to keep my highlights the same, and wanted to focus on adding some shine back to my hair along with a new cut.

Thursday morning we all met at the salon at 7am to start production. After the camera crew set up and a lot of coffee, we started filming our before shots and consultations with Harry. The other girls also filmed themselves applying the Precision Foam Color to their hair, to demonstrate how easy the application process is.

My segment focused on fixing my dull hair. Having highlights, styling every day and well water has really taken a toll on my hair. Harry decided to use John Frieda Clear Shine on me, which is a glazing treatment that adds shine and smoothness to hair. As for the cut…he was thinking Edie Sedgwick inspired…and the stylists got to work!


After washing my hair with the Full Repair line to help with dryness, Blake, Harry’s assistant, applied Clear Shine from roots to ends and let it sit for 5 minutes. After rinsing Clear Shine out Blake started cutting. I made sure to pay good attention to how he dried my hair so I could easily do it again myself. He explained how to get a dramatic side part (new to me) and how to use a smaller round brush to get ends straighter, avoiding a flat iron.


After I was cut and styled, it was time to get my make up done. India worked with the makeup artist, Nam Vo, to create a mod Edie Segdwick inspired look for me. Black out eyes, long lashes, shiny nude lips and a beauty mark completed my face.


Next was wardrobe. The fall fashion trend I was chosen to represent was ‘Lace’ – yes please! Nola picked out a black lace dress for me, along with ridiculously high (and sexy) suede turquoise heels for a pop of color. I had to do a couple laps around the salon in the heels just to make sure I could get around okay in them.

Makeover complete! The Clear Shine made a world of difference to my hair. When I returned home I had people ask me if they colored it because the color looked so much healthier and shiny. I want to say thank you to Harry Josh and his team of talented stylists and to the Glam team for making us all look fabulous!
