As for the hairstyle, I love the contrast between the shiny, stick-straight blunt bangs against the tousled and waved texture of the rest of her strands.

In 2012, WWD reports, we can all look forward to the first "spa car," a Renault/Biotherm collab with the too-cute name Zoe Z.E. Besides sounding like a manic pixie dream girl, the car will be zero emission, completely electric, and clever. It promises to purify your air, provide pollution protection for your skin, and diffuse pleasant scents designed to boost your mood and alertness at various times throughout the day. (There's an "awake" morning scent, a "de-stress" after-work one, and a "stay awake" for late-night driving).
You might think that having an electric, zero emissions car on the market would be more than enough to get people talking about Zoe, but I guess like those Eddie Bauer edition Ford Explorers, sometimes people feel safer with a gimmick. What do you think? Is this car improved by having spa qualities, or is this a "cars for girls!" disaster in the making?
Speyer's advice is to schedule your first appointment with the new hairdresser on a day that your current hairdresser has the day off. If you end up sticking with the new stylist, Speyer recommends leaving a note on your former stylist's station, saying something like: "I stopped in and had my hair done by ____. Thanks for everything but I've decided to make the change for her." (Ouch.) Then, the next time you go in for an appointment, be sure to acknowledge your previous stylist in some way — even if it's just a wave — to avoid further uncomfortable moments. What do you think of Speyer's advice? Is it something you'd definitely follow or would you take a different approach?
