Living in the city of San Francisco has more perks than just awesome pressed juices, coffees and ramen. It's also a hub for artists of all kinds. This year, I get the honor of attending a performance by the SF Ballet School entitled An Invitation To Dance. The School is one of the leading schools in the world for ballet and I'm proud to support the student showcase which raises funds for scholarships and financial aid for the students. This day in age, it's more important than ever to support that and empower those that make this world beautiful: art, artistry, and young artists. You can still bUy tickets to the performance here. And here's a preview of my dinner ensemble: in all stars to celebrate future all-stars.
About every six weeks, this beautiful, sharp, blunt-banged bob gets long and choppy and messy and gross. I can't describe the disgusting feeling it gives me to have a bunch air just hanging at my neck. I can't tie it back, I can't pin it back, I can't style it away, I'm just stuck with it all up in my neck. It's like torture that one inch of hair. Thankfully I have a standing appointment at Sassoon Salon with Creative Director Michael Forrey who does his hocus pocus and I have perfect bobbed hair again. My favorite part about hair day is EVERYTHING. I start with a good head massage with a berry smelling shampoo, then a cut and conversation with the always charming and amazing Michael, and we finish with a perfect blow out. Not a bad angle in site.
Some tips on keeping this bob on point: 1. I get my bangs trimmed every two weeks so that the style always looks freshly cut. 2. To keep my hair soft but not oily, I condition only the tips of my hair 3. For shiny hair, I use a hot oil treatment every two weeks. 4. I spray on a little bit of dry wax to give it a little texture and to keep everything in place. 5. Go everywhere and act like you own the place.
My birthday is next week, which will officially usher me out of my mid-thirties and into my late-thirties, which in my mind is just a countdown to forty, which is basically a decade of worrying about how much more your skin and body will sag by the time you're fifty. So, it's kind of a big deal. But what I've noticed is that my mid-life crisis has made me WAY more fun now than I ever was when I was younger. For example, all the girls at the Las Vegas pool are complimenting me on my go-to pool ensemble--leather bikini and five inch lucite heels , I cried like a baby when I touched a Backstreet Boy, and I just got huge gold hoop earrings that say "bitch" on them because why not? I mean sure, I feel old and withered but damn I'm having blast. Also, I happen to like old guys who drive Lambos wearing polos and boat shoes. They're still in a Lambo. So, my new mantra is "you're 37, not 27 so act like it and embrace your inner mid-life crisis and let your ass hang out of all your dresses!" #wordstoliveby #notdeadyet
The kings and queens of the bob are back with a new hair collection called Urbane at Sassoon Salon. These cool cuts are inspired by the modern day architecture and style of the 1970's. The stylists describe the Urbane collection as conjuring "a sky-city where light floods through the clouds into the concrete space of a high rise penthouse. Shapes are abstract, simple and pure with styling in shades of robin’s egg and cerulean blue inspired by the minimalism of fashion designer Helmut Lang." I could not have said it better myself. The hair is simple and chic and has all the right angles you want in a bob. I get my bob cut by my amazing Michael Forrey at SF's Sassoon Salon--also known as my forever bob stylist.
