Celebrity hair guru Philip B. is our summer hair savior

No cuts, no color, just deeply restorative hair and scalp treatments are what you will find on the menu at celebrity hair guru Philip B.’s appointment only WeHo atelier. Brand new — and perfect for reviving hair that’s been overexposed to a summer’s worth of sun, sand and swim  — is the Signature Oil Treatment ($700). The treatment starts with Philip thoroughly exfoliating the scalp using his Stroke of Genius brush before applying his cult Rejuvenating Oil, which Nicole Kidman uses to prep for the red carpet by letting it soak in her hair overnight. Custom blended with actives like pharmaceutical grade peppermint oil to relieve tension in the scalp muscles, CBD oil to treat psoriasis, and lavender oil for dehydration, the bespoke blend is massaged into the scalp and warmed to penetrate the follicle. Hair is then cleansed and conditioned, and blown out leaving it looking and feeling like new. “The treatment detoxes and stimulates the scalp and the oil is like food for the hair,” says Philip, who has worked with Mick Jagger, Iman and Prince. “It plumps the ends, adds length and a bounce that makes you look ten years younger.”  Email [email protected] to book.

Botox and more at the touch of a button

Regi, a beauty booking platform launched by Allergan (the pharmaceutical company behind Botox, Juvederm and Latisse), is making navigating the burgeoning Los Angeles beauty scene a lot easier. The carefully curated list of providers includes not only L.A.’s leading aesthetic dermatologists Alexander Rivkin and Leif Rogers, but also a seriously impressive roster of A-list go-to salons, spas and wellness destinations including Striiike (Mandy Moore and Emily Blunt’s one-stop beauty studio); Dominique Bossavy (the insider’s semi-permanent makeup specialist); Ricari Studios (the under-the-radar endermologie spot); Francesca Paige Beauty (a red carpet facial favorite); and Surya Spa (where Gwyneth Paltrow and Busy Phillips do Ayuvedic detoxes). The site offers everything from injectables, laser treatments, cryotherapy and gel manicures to facials and hair services along with insider tips on everything from parking to protocol. Their concierge service can also help users to identify which treatment they want based on concerns — frown lines, thinning lips, stubborn pockets of fat and so on — then connect them with qualified providers in their area and even handle appointments.

Retouch IRL from Intraceuticals

Intraceuticals has a serious celebrity following thanks to their game-changing Oxygen Facial beloved by everyone from Cate Blanchett to Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore. Now, 17 years after breaking onto the scene, the Australian-based brand is launching RETOUCH by Intraceuticals, developed with the millennial consumer in mind and consisting of five fragrance-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free, gluten-free, silicon-free, PEG-free serums. All five serums are designed to be used in conjunction with each other or customized to create a tailored regime. The Hyaluronic Base Serum should be applied after cleansing to provide intense hydration for the skin, then supplemented with the Lift, Eyes, Lines and Highlight serums as needed. Makeup artist and brand ambassador Gina Brooke, who has worked with Madonna, Anne Hathaway and Cher, says, “I always love to use a hyaluronic serum on all of my make-up clients. Being able to customize your serum to target problem areas such as dark circles and redness allows a bespoke approach to skincare which means you get a perfect boost where and when you need it.”

Hollywood’s must-have recovery tool is finally available to try before you buy

You’ve probably seen videos of Mark Wahlberg, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Adam Levine and Ashley Graham massaging their aching limbs with this cordless vibrating handheld device that looks like a cross between a power drill and jackhammer. Now Theragun, the leader in what’s been dubbed “percussive massage therapy,” is opening a brick and mortar boutique in Westfield Century City where customers can experience the high-frequency, high-amplitude neuromuscular device that provides muscle recovery and pain relief first hand. Fifteen minute whole body Relaxation Experiences will cost just $25 (in comparison the G3 Pro device costs $399 to buy) and will be administered by the brand’s trained, certified specialists and specifically designed to melt away muscle tension, soreness, tightness and stress, while gently, yet effectively, calming the nervous system.

Ciel Spa Pops Up in the Palisades

The Palisades Village invite-only space, The Coast Lounge, will be hosting a Biologique Recherche pop-up in collaboration with the SLS Ciel Spa from August 29-31. The French heritage brand, whose cult Lotion P50 has garnered fans such as Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt and Sharon Stone, is known for its instant tightening and brightening face and body treatments. Among the services offered will be the the Signature Slimming body treatment ($450), which reduces the appearance of cellulite, firms the skin and increases microcirculation in the body and Remodeling Facial ($350), using their proprietary Remodeling Machine which combines four currents (galvanic, medium and high frequencies, and electroporation) to instantly sculpt and lift. Post treatment, shop a selection of Biologique Recherche products and indulge in a glass of champagne and spa-style snacks.

Whoever had Christina Hendricks in the “American Beauty” poster body part office pool wins.

Apparently answering the question nobody was asking, the “Mad Men” star revealed that her hand was placed atop another model’s tummy on the iconic ad.

“I used to be a model and sometimes a hand model,” Hendricks wrote on her official Instagram page. “This is my hand and another model’s stomach.”

CHRISTINA SAYS SHE WAS DENIED ROLES BECAUSE OF HER BODY

Hendricks, 44, would have been 24 during the debut of the Oscar-winning movie about a sexually frustrated suburban father, played by Kevin Spacey, who is fixated on his daughter’s best friend, played by Mena Suvari.

“American Beauty” won Oscars for Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Film.

CHRISTINA’S CLOTHES CATCH FIRE AT PARTY

“Proud to be a part of this film in ANY WAY!!!” Hendricks concluded.

Hoje tem Look do dia duplo. Mesma calça com pregas , cintura alta e cinto com combinações diferentes. Mantive até o sapato e troquei a blusa e os acessórios.

Vocês que me acompanham no Instagram (@makeupatelier) já sabem que daqui a pouco esta minha calça sairá andando sozinha né ? Amo calça com pregas e cintura alta e fiquei bem feliz que elas voltaram a moda e estão aparecendo com tudo na coleção atual.

Escolhi dois dos looks que usei com ela para mostrar as opções para vocês. Pois mesmo sendo uma calça mais formal, ela fica linda até com camiseta.

No primeiro look eu fui para meus azuis favoritos e combinei com regata de malha e uma bolsa molinha. Bem alegre e despojado para um almoço com a família.

Nesta primeira versão eu usei o cinto que vem junto com a calça e claro, a camiseta por dentro sempre por conta da modelagem do cós.

É uma calça que deve ficar na cintura, evidencia as formas femininas e por ter a barra mais ajustada, deixa o corpo mais curvilíneo. Quem tem quadril muito largo e não quer ressaltar ainda mais, deve optar por modelos mais retos e barras mais largas.

O sapato nude alonga as pernas.

No segundo look eu combinei com uma lusa de decote canoa que faz os ombros parecerem mais largos e isso equilibra o quadril em uma ilusão de ótica.

Troquei o cinto original pelo cinto de couro com fivela de metal, mantive o mesmo sapato e escolhi uma bolsa mais chamativa para dar cor ao look P&B

E aí, já estão de olho na calça de pregas e cintura alta ? Eu já comprei uma nude e já estou de olho em uma terceira cor.

olaplex sephora haul
I hope this works!

Hiya, friend! I hope your coffee ☕ is strong and your spirit is light on this lovely Caturday. If you need me, I’ll be the cat lady in the plastic hair cap, which I’ll be wearing all day long so the Olaplex No. 3 at-home hair treatment I’m trying can work its alleged magic.

Speaking of that…

I walked into Sephora a couple days ago planning to get just one or two things from Olaplex and take advantage of the VIB discount, but then this 👆 happened.

I mean, I didn’t get all of their products. 😬 I didn’t buy the hair oil, even though I reeeeeeally wanted to, because Caitya, my favorite MUA there, hooked me up with generous samples. (Thanks, lady!) So I can still try it.

Everyone talks about the Olaplex at-home system of No. 3 (pre-shampoo treatment), No. 4 (shampoo), No. 5 (conditioner) and No. 6 (leave-in) as if they’re hair miracles sent from the beauty heavens above, and I’m very excited about trying them now because I’m at a turning point in the process of growing out my grays.

The biggest challenge right now (I’m about eight months in) is figuring out how to deal with the wiry, unruly texture. The wiry strands seem to be multiplying exponentially, especially at the top of my head, and I swear I look like a mad scientist! 👩‍🔬

Olaplex is supposed to be life-changing for that.

If you’ve tried their products, please tell me about your experience! I’d love to hear what you think.

A very special treat on a very special day

When my co-pilot and I were at Sephora, I treated her to a little beauty haul of her own to celebrate the start of preschool. ❤️ I let her pick out a clear $6 lip balm from the Sephora Collection, and Caitya (who’s been working at this same Sephora since I was pregnant with Connor and always says hi to us) made Connor feel extra special by wrapping the lip balm in tissue and giving her a tiny Sephora bag in which to carry it.

Now, my shower cap and I are off to go clean the closet that I refuse to be plagued by anymore. While I find the strength to let go of the things that no longer bring me joy, enjoy your weekend beauty reading… 😊

Speaking of Olaplex, a jury ruled earlier this month that L’Oréal was guilty of trade-secret theft, patent infringement and breach of contract with Olaplex. L’Oréal was ordered to pay Olaplex — a startup based on the research of two University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) chemists — more than $22 million for each of the first two offenses, and close to $47 million for the third (!).


Why was this so amusing? LOL!


Heck, yeah, I’d watch it.


Next level your crayon game.


I would do this in a heartbeat with Coy-Coy.


Me and this cat in our plastic shower caps = twinsies.

Stay kind and cool today, my friend. ❤️

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

it cosmetics drybar lash blow out top
A blow out for your fringe?

I guess since Drybar caters to hair, and since lashes technically are hair, there’s a correlation between having a stylist blow out your unruly mane, and lengthening your lashes with mascara?

Weird flex but OKURRRR!

Drybar is known for their blow-drying hair services and not for makeup, so I was surprised when they teamed up with It Cosmetics to launch a new mascara.

It Cosmetics Lash Blow Out ($25) is supposed to lift, lengthen and thicken your lashes (my life’s purpose), so I’ll bite…

it cosmetics drybar lash blow out mascara
Cute! The packaging resembles a round brush.

The ends of the bristles on the wand have tiny spheres designed to catch and comb through lashes, while the wand latches onto your lashes to separate each and every hair (so it works!), but I do wish that the tip of the brush was thinner, because it’s hard to get it into the inner and outer corners without leaving a trail of wayward mascara bits and bobs behind.

it cosmetics drybar lash blow out mascara before after
I used two coats.

After two coats, my lashes (which are longer and thicker thanks to Rodan + Fields Lash Boost) are slightly longer and more separated, but the lift at the base only lasts for about an hour before my lash curl starts to droop ever-so-slightly.

As for volume, I need at least three layers of Lash Blow Out to get the results I see from one coat of $32 Dimensions de Chanel Mascara (my current holy grail).

So, the effect is noticeable, but it isn’t life-altering.

Verdict: If you’re all about length and separation, Lash Blow Out delivers. You’ll get both, sans clumps, smears or heaviness; however, if you also crave lift and volume (like I do!), then this stuff will test your patience. It requires at least three coats to reeeeeally thicken that fringe.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. TGIF!!! 🤗
