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.
Is one of your New Year's resolutions to switch up your beauty look a bit? An avant-garde hairstyle is the perfect solution. Not only will this type of style give you extra edge, but it comes without the commitment of a new cut or color. I recently went behind the scenes of Global Green's Gorgeous and Green benefit gala in San Francisco, where stylist Sherilynn Smart of the Sherilynn Jade Salon in Lafayette, CA, created three different forward-looking hairstyles for the models who walked the runway. All you need is a few hair pins, some styling products (Sherilynn used Pureology), and a little bit of braiding knowledge. See the styles now.

It's the most! Wonderful! Time! Of the year! This December, we're looking forward to giving gifts to everyone we love (and, OK, giving ourselves a gift or two, too). Read on to see what beauty items we're most excited about this month. We have a feeling you'll find a few things to put on your own list.
It's been a long time since crimped hair was in style, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it may be time to reconsider the crimping iron. Here's why.
The centerpiece of Global Green USA's Gorgeous & Green Benefit in San Francisco was an eco-friendly fashion show. Backstage, stylists from Pureology created cool pompadour-insipred updos and chignons. By using differently sized crimping irons, they created unexpected and edgy textures that felt contemporary.
While I'm not ready to welcome traditional crimping irons into my life, the smaller textures could work for a night out. The show's lead stylist, Natasha Sunshine, used the Sam Villa Signature Series Textur Iron to create the smaller crimps. For the show, they were used all over; for real life, crimping an inch-wide strip would be enough to create interest. Would you do it, or is crimping one of those things that you can't imagine bringing back?
