Public Image Salon on Roosevelt Row

The city of Phoenix bears many sterling attractions that could surprise even the most staunchly devoted Californian, and one of its crown jewels is the hip Roosevelt Row. Rebelliously emblazoned in murals (think more Banksy than hippie) and ebullient with driftwood-embellished coffee shops and brunch spots, it’s a compulsory item on the to-do list for any visitor — and a major factor for consideration in apartment searches.

Roosevelt’s newest gem is Public Image, a full service salon whose moniker pays homage to the punk days of yore. Could one dream up a more perfect addition to the Row? Continue reading “Public Image Salon on Roosevelt Row” »

When it Comes to Hairstyling, Pink Out Loud!

Who doesn’t love being stylish for a cause? More importantly, what girl doesn’t love PINK?

Paul Mitchell has brilliantly combined these interests in their fabulous #PINKOUTLOUD campaign, a partnership with Bright Pink which focuses on prevention and early-detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.

paul-mitchell-limited-edition-pink-out-loud-express-ion-dry-hairdryerIn support, they’ve released a bunch of fab new styling goodies including my favorite, the official Express Ion Dry+ hairdryer. Not only is it the best hairdryer I’ve ever used (hello, LCD display and FIVE temp/speed settings + diffuser and cool shot), but it’s sups-adorbs and for a good cause to boot!

How can you help support this stylish and generous effort? Here are a few easy ways (2 out of 3 won’t cost you a dime either):

  • Capture your best pink lipstick selfie, leave a mark on a lover or snap a pic of a friend blowing the world a kiss, and share the images on your social channel with #PINKOUTLOUD to help create social buzz and inspire the women we love to be proactive and seal their long-lasting wellness with a kiss;
  • Donate at Brightpink.org’s page; or
  • Text PINKOUTLOUD to 59227 to sign up for Bright Pink’s monthly Breast Health Reminder™ text with tips to be Breast Self-Aware, and encourage the women in your life to do the same!

Dip Dye Reverse-Ombre DIY Haircolor


This post is sponsored by Bigen.

If you’d asked me a month ago, I’d have said I’d never change my hair. In fact, many SD fans bemoaned the idea at all – my lion-clown mane is my signature, they said. Alas, I’m first and foremost a beauty blogger, and we all must grow and change.

So I did it all by myself, like a big girl and in the My Little Pony parlance of our times decided to do a dip dye, reverse-ombre kinda look. To clarify for those interested (and to soothe the OCD colorists out there), let’s talk about what these terms actually mean and the difference between them: Continue reading “Dip Dye Reverse-Ombre DIY Haircolor” »
