That fresh tropical scent… the mystique of sea salt… no, we are not talking about the weather getting warmer and the fresh scents associated with spring, we are talking about the must haves for S/S 2014!

From a sunkissed glow (faux of course, it’s better for your skin) to a root-lift spray that will have your locks not on lock-down, to even a magical product that will get hard-to-remove glitter polish off with one peel, we are obsessing over these products for spring. Continue Reading

Damien Carney jumps on a plane the way most people hop on a bus.

Between splitting his time between three cosmopolitan cities (New York, London, and Los Angeles) and heading up his own mobile hairstyling academy, Carney is the international artistic director for Joico Laboratories, Inc., one of the leading salon beauty brands in the world.  Add to this the accolades of being one of the most influential hairstylists of our time and having received numerous awards, not to mention that even a single appointment with him has a year-plus waiting list, and it’s obvious to all that Carney is a bonafide hair legend.  However, although he has achieved what most stylists only dream of, to him he’s just plain ol’ Damien.

To television viewers and hairstylists, she may be known as the queen of mean, but Tabatha Coffey, host of Tabatha’s Salon Takeover and Tabatha Takes Over, as well as a bestselling author, got to where she is by her outspoken personality, her brutal honesty, and the fact that she’s a bitch (Brave, Intelligent, Tenacious, Creative, and Honest — her words, not ours).

Stuff We Are Dye-ing Over! Holidays 2011

Posted on 30 November 2011 by DELCommInc

Break out the sequin berets and mittens, the holidays are upon us!  From candy-coloured hair to sensuous candles, we got the gifts that just keep giving!  Pull out your pens and paper because Santa is about to get a whole new list.

1. FHI Go Blow Dryer with Concentrator and GO One-inch Styling Iron

Kill that frizz with this neat combo from FHI Heat.  The brand new GO Blow Dryer Ceramic with tourmaline technology reduces static, locks in moisture and creates a healthy shine so you don’t have to have electric hair when you take off your toque.  And, it also includes a GO one-inch styling iron so you can tame that frizzy beast to create sleek hair for any holiday party.

Available from Salon Centre or your local FHI Heat distributor.

2. SpaRitual Twinkle Four Piece Minis Holiday Gift Set

The holidays aren’t complete without a little razzle dazzle on your nails!  Get this chic set of minis (Break of Dawn, Solstice, Shooting Star, and Illumination) from the 2011 Spa Ritual Twinkle collection.  The best part?  These fab lacquers (like all polishes from SpaRitual) are free of DBP, formaldehyde and toluene, and formaldehyde resin.

$20.00 from SkinStore.com.

3. Sultra The Wicked Gold Decadence Special Edition Wave & Straight One-Inch Iron

Go gorgeous this holiday season.  From ringlets to sleek styles, the Wicked Gold Decadence straightening iron will make you a golden girl in anyone’s book.  The Kyocera Ceramic Heater Technology protects your hair while the two-tone gold heat resistant clutch will protect your flat iron.

$165 USD from Sultra.com.  Salon pricing is $139.99 from BSG Professional Distributors Network.

4. Make-up Designory (MUD) Beloved Collection

Create an unforgettable look this holiday season with deep, warm lips, a smokey eye, and warm cheeks.  To top it all off, carry your makeup essentials in the added train case. 

$79.99 from Make-Up Designory. While Supplies Last.

5. SpaRitual Holiday Three Piece Candle Trio

From fragrant to sensual, these romantic candles are hand-poured into a recycled glass cylinder and feature a 100 per cent cotton, lead-free wick for hours of fragrance and illumination.  The candles are formulated with natural soy, palm, and coconut wax and are infused with SpaRitual’s most popular essential oil-based scents like Infinity Loving, Look Inside, and Close Your Eyes.  And, it gets better: once you blow out the light, you can use the wax as a massage oil.

$36 from SkinBotanica.com.


Get one of the season’s hottest trends temporarily. Ombre or dip dyed hair is easier than ever with these highly-pigmented powders in hues of pink, purple, and orange.   The colour is applied directly onto product-treated hair and it doesn’t matter if you are blonde, brunette, red, or any other colour under the rainbow, rub it on and take notice.   Don’t want commitment?  Just wash it out when you’re done.  It’s that easy.
