Want the look of salon, blown out hair? Here's how.
First step, it starts with a good shampoo. Prieto recommends starting with a shampoo and conditioner, formulated for your hair type. If your hair is frizzy, he recommends Kerastase Oleo Relax shampoo and the Oleo Relax Slim Masque, or any anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner will do. Then, use a styling product to prep and protect the hair for the blow dry, such as Kerastase Oleo Slim styling product, or any styling lotion.
How Mark Garrison salon fixed bad hair and bad color in just one day.
Let me tell you something, if you think your hair looks bad and are hiding behind ponytails and even considering a wig—it probably does look bad. Maybe even worse than you imagined. Sorry.
And if you're telling your hairstylist that you're not happy with your hair and they're not listening to you—it's time to say goodbye and find a new salon. Pronto. Don't be like me, and keep hoping you can work the situation out over a period of months while your hair is progressively getting worse. It's your money, your hair, move on.
If you ask Lady Gaga, she would never be caught wearing flats.
Wearing flats might make Gaga seem more like a regular Lady and take away from her star mystique. "You see legendary people taking out their trash, I think it's destroying show business," she said on the British television show. "I'd never give up my wigs and hats for anything."
What do you prefer—heels or flats?
Personally, I agree with Gaga and love how serious she takes her role as a performer and the need to dress the part.
But like the majority of gals, I don't have to worry about maintaining my show business image, so I prefer flats. They're much more comfortable than heels, easy to walk in and usually don't kill my feet (unless they don't fit correctly).

A British survey shows the average woman spends about that on makeup in her lifetime.
Do you know how much you spend annually on your cosmetics? You may think splurging on a new mascara or lipstick won't make a dent in your overall budget.
Don't get us wrong, we're not telling you not to buy new makeup, but a recent British survey shows that women spend an average of 9,000 British pounds, or about $14,000 (on this day, the exchange estimated it to be $13,530) over the course of their lifetime.
How? That's because, starting at about age 16, women will buy mascara, foundation and lipstick at least five times a year. They spend at least $40 each time, according to the survey.
The beauty leader explains the company's role in ending domestic violence.
Simply Chic asked Avon CEO Andrea Jung why she got involved in ending domestic violence, a cause she said the company is taking even a stronger stand on, despite the current economic conditions.
Responding to our question, Jung had a two-part answer. "We felt Avon was the perfect company to help end domestic violence," she said. "First of all, we have over six million representatives all over the world who are very passionate about educating other women. They felt they could be a force in providing information and education to other women. If they or people they knew were victims of abuse that they could in fact have a solution and that Avon could provide them the tools, the education and the training.
