Beach hair: it's effortless, sexy, and (more than likely) a clear indication that Summer is here. When you can't get to the beach, though, texturizing sprays are especially helpful in achieving this look. But not all sprays are created equal. Whether you need to preserve your hair color, add shine, or want to test out a sea salt-free option, we have you covered. On Kirbie: Forever 21 blazer, Bebe skirt.
When your beauty routine turns philanthropic, it can be a, well, beautiful thing. Davines is handing you the opportunity to get a haircut that does more than boost your confidence by partnering with The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation for their second Sustainable Beauty Day. On Monday, Oct. 15, step into any one of the participating salons and get a cut or style for free. Clients are encouraged to make a donation of $15 or more, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. Last year's style-and-cut-athon raised over $25,000, but this year's goal is $50,000 to fund a fruit tree planting in Brazil in February of next year. A pick-your-price haircut that's for a good cause sounds like a pretty sweet deal, doesn't it?
Split ends can make even the most carefully coiffed hairstyles look less than polished. And while the only real "cure" is to trim the frizz at the salon, there are a few things you can do to smooth your strands at home. Check out this easy, three-step routine that will keep your ends sleek and silky all year long. On Kirbie: H&M.
Eco-conscious beauty at its best: Luxury hair care brand Davines and The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation have teamed up to create the first ever Sustainable Beauty Day. This Monday, June 20, you can visit select salons and receive most cut and styling services for a minimum donation of $15. 100% of the donations will go to planting fruit trees in impoverished communities in Africa, helping to alleviate hunger, create oxygen, and improve the air, soil, and water quality in the Sofala Province of Mozambique. It's a really great deal if you're in need of a new look.
Davines' fruit tree planting initiative, aptly titled Sustainabilitree, aims to raise money to fund a project that will plant up to 4,000 native trees in these areas. If you're interested in getting a new hairstyle and donating to the Sustainabilitree project, check out a list of the participating salons in your area.
Last year, upon the Beckham's much-anticipated arrival to the States, Celebrity colorist Johnny Ramirez welcomed Posh to her new home by "Californizing" that famous graduated bob to platinum blond levels.
Just this past weekend, Ramirez, who works at the Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills, gave the petite trendsetter's chic pixie some extra zip, and I've got the exclusive details on what went down. Check out my interview below, and look out for some more of Johnny's hair-color advice to come:
Is Victoria just as funny in person as she is on TV?
"Victoria is the most generous, warm person. She's considerate, and super nice — not just to me — but to anybody."
Can you tell me a little about what you did do enhance Victoria's chestnut-brown hair?
"After discussing what she wanted, we decided to keep her a brunette. Victoria's ends were faded to a reddish warm color — this happens to most brunettes. To keep her a soft, natural medium brown, I started with her roots by applying a permanent hair color. Once the color was done processing, I combed it through the ends to break up the line at the shampoo bowl. Then . . . two different types of toners were used to tone the warm ends. I always finish my hair color with a gloss to lock in the color and seal it with shine. That's what makes color look healthy, natural, and beautiful."
