My Hair's Daily Defense

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 7, 2017, In : Reviews 
Despite being challenging and difficult, there's a few things I liked about my pregnancy and wish I have kept. For one, my skin was luminous and blemish-free! I also had luscious shiny hair that I barely needed to manage. That was, until last month when my hair began falling. It's not as bad as some women, but still!

So I've contacted my resident hairstylist to give my hair the much needed treatment it needs and she suggested that I get myself hairstyling products that are sulfate-free. I'm no...

Maternity Shoot: Dazzling Mom Shaine

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, In : Works 
My first post after giving birth is to share with you guys the first makeup booking I accepted after giving birth, two months post-partum. It was bittersweet leaving my baby girl for a couple of hours as I missed her terribly (and worried for no reason) but at the same time got really excited to be part of the universe again! I was ecstatic that my first job would be for Shaine's maternity shoot. She had our shoot at 35 weeks pregnant, just like I did last January. Besides all the pregnancy a...

Watsons Hair Treats

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 28, 2016, In : Announcements 
When my readers ask for my recommendation on any beauty buy, I always give them two options. First is a splurge-worthy product and second is a similar product at a much lower price. Even on a budget, there's no excuse to forego our instincts to prettify ourselves. And when our beauty is on a budget, my favorite place to look is Watsons.

Recently, Watsons has created a line for us to cop the look of luscious locks all day, everyday. Hair Treats is a line of Watsons exclusive hair care products ...

Control Your Frizz

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 6, 2016, In : Events 
Now that my priorities have shifted, it has been harder and harder to make time to visit the salon for some pampering session. I find myself with, at the most, half an hour to prep myself to leave the house. It’s one thing to walk out of a salon with gorgeous, straight hair and another to step out of the house every day with the same salon-gorgeous look. But thanks to amazing beauty products like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth, I can now #ControlYourFrizz with the same salon results, right in you...

A Great Hair Day with Himawari

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, June 16, 2016, In : Reviews 
It's been more than half a year now since I chopped off my long locks. And contrary to popular belief, short hair is so much harder to maintain. You got to visit the salon for a snip every six to eight weeks to keep the right shape of your short 'do. With long hair before, I can just pony up or put it in a bun if I'm lazy to style it up. But with short hair, I gotta blowdry, use the iron, and apply God knows how many products to style it right. Yes, it's been an awful whole lot of deal to be ...

Q&A: The right amount of volume on thick hair

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, June 4, 2016, In : Reviews 
I received a message last week in my Facebook page on how to add the right amount of volume on a head that's already blessed with thick tresses.

Q: Hi Dior I have thick hair, that goes for both my strands and the texture of my hair. I still like my hair to have volume especially my crown which is always limp. But I don't know how to achieve this. What is the right amount of volume on thick hair? Help!

A: I, too, have the same dilemma! If your hair is anything close to mine, you probably are ge...

Bold Hair with Watsons

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, In : Events 
If there's one concern we human beings share, it has to do with our crowning glory -- our hair. Now more than ever, our hair is a statement to who are in this world. However, most of us are still afraid to really let our personalities show because of fear of hair damage and costly maintenance. 

Watsons’ recently launched their “Color Your Hair Bold” initiative at Revel, The Palace, to ease these worries of women by highlighting that hair coloring is not only fun, it is also safe, afford...

Double Up On Beauty with Cream Silk

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 5, 2016, In : Announcements 
More and more, I see that Filipinas are becoming more fashion-forward, daring to stand out and look different. And this is true not only on fashion but also on beauty, especially on hairstyles. No longer are we intimidated by bright hair colors and bold hairstyles, as it has now become one of the most important forms of expressing ourselves. The problem, however, is that along with styling is the threat of dealing with dry hair.

Cream Silk, the country’s No.1 conditioner, enables the Fili...

Review: Himawari Oil in Shampoo & Conditioner

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, August 29, 2015, In : Reviews 
When I received a package from Kracie to try out their Himawari Oil in Shampoo and Conditioner, I immediately looked at the details at the back of the bottle to see if it's silicone- and sulfate-free. And thank God they are! You see, I have been regularly highlighting my hair every six months. Because of this, I need hair products that won't fade my hair color. Just in time, Himawari was sent to me just in time when my Kerastase Chroma shampoo and conditioner have a few drops left.

My Wedding Beauty Look

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, In : Works 
It's been two months since my wedding day and until this day, I still get a lot of inquiries on the makeup I used on myself that day. So I thought of just posting it here in my blog.

Yes, I did my own makeup on my wedding day not because I don't trust the talent of other makeup artists but because I'm just more comfortable in the way I do my own makeup. 



For my bridal makeup, I opted for a soft look with some definition without altering anything. As I always do on almost all my brides, I just e...

Go-to Beauty Remedies

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, April 23, 2015, In : Reviews 
Due to a lot of things going on left and right, my skin has been suffering for quite a time now. Dry patches and untimely breakouts happening all at once, I don't know what my skintype is anymore! So, I've found myself leaning towards skincare products that promise instant results. Not that they're just for quick fixes, but these babies have really been helpful during those times of stress and emergencies.

Trending: The Spoiled Groom

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, February 27, 2015, In : Reviews 
Year after year, the wedding industry evolves. Some decades ago, wedding SDEs, prenuptial shoots and more so post-nuptial shoots are something the past generation wedded without. I always notice parents of my brides complain why couples suddenly need these for just a wedding. Then last year, the trend towards wide panels LED screens emerged, making projectors a thing of the past.

This 2015, I’m noticing a new trend towards attention shifting more to the grooms than it ever did before. Som...

3 Minute Miracle

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, In : Reviews 
I've just recently highlighted my already "dead" hair again a couple of weeks ago. Despite the bi-monthly treatments I give my rough locks to keep it healthy, it's almost impossible to give it back the shine of my once lustrous virgin strands due to regular colouring that has caused it to become unruly and brittle. But with the beauty industry spending big bucks on R&D, I know it was only a matter of time that someone would come up with a solution.

Oh how I wish I can achieve Bea's glossy and ...

Japan's Kracie Arrives Manila

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, December 16, 2014, In : Announcements 
I don't know about you beauty addicts, but the first aisle I head to when at a grocery store is the toiletries aisle. We've gotten a lot of good brands over the years but somehow, they never seemed enough still. So when I heard that Kracie, a toiletry and cosmetic brand that came from Japan, is finally available in Manila, I was psyched! Established in 1887, Kracie provides high quality but reasonably priced home-use products for daily living such as body washes, shampoos, hair conditioners, ...

Review: Pantene Intensive Daily Conditioner

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, November 1, 2014, In : Reviews 
With dozens of new innovative hair treatments that promises to transform our hair every year, who can blame a girl from trying at a couple of them out? From digi-perms to X-tenso rebonds to different hair colors, I’m sure anyone beyond the age of 18 has tried at least once. But with these new innovations come hair damage.

Since the time I started highlighting my hair regularly every four months, I’ve been obsessed with conditioners. Just one day of skipping conditioner and my hair insta...

Q&A: Hairstyling Product Build-Up

Q: Dior, I'm a model and my hair is suffering from too much hair products applied almost everyday at shoots. I need something to "detox" my hair from all the product build-up. Help!

A: I understand your sentiments. Sometimes, my hair too just feels weighed down, extra greasy, and just won't behave itself! What you need is a good clarifying shampoo to remove residue, product build-up and dirt from your hair strands. Products such as hairsprays, mousses, and gels; even hard water, chlorine and ...

Luxe Pampering at Lulu Nails Salon

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, June 20, 2013, In : Reviews 
One of the few luxuries I allow myself to splurge on is what I call "beauty pampering". Whether it be on a facial, a massage or a haircut -- I just think that we all deserve a treat after days of working hard. However, everywhere's congested nowadays that it's difficult to find a quiet spot in the metro. I'm in a phase in my life that I'd rather go a place where I won't be seen, even when just dining out. 

Lulu Nails Salon and Dry Bar is one of the few spaces I can consider a haven. Unlike oth...

Protecting & Prolonging Hairstyles

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, January 28, 2013, In : Reviews 
Lately, I've been obsessed on styling my hair on my own. Since I and my partner hairstylists have been styling our clients coifs and locks for a living, I've grown interest on actually doing these styles on my own hair. I've posted reviewed some of the products I've tried several times on my blog but most of them are only available overseas. I've gotten a lot of questions as to where to get the heat protectant I reviewed here as well as the revolutionary hair primer I wrote about here. Sad to...

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, In : News 
One of the best innovations in beauty would probably be makeup primers. Smoothing it onto skin creates an even canvas for makeup and also helps ensure your products will last several times longer than they would normally do. It's a makeup artists' top weapon for sure. Hairstylists, don't dismay as I've just learned that a hair primer — a formula that will extend the life of your coif, has just been launched. Living Proof has just debuted their Prime Style Extender, a hair primer that claims...

The New Glorietta Vibe

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, December 6, 2012,
Never have I thought of gracing the ramp with the country's top models and personalities. But when I was invited by friend and fellow blogger Liz to walk for Ferretti, one of Glorietta's merchants, who can say no? To be a part of history, beating the Guinness World Record for the "Most People Modeling" on a catwalk, was a privilege and an opportunity anyone wouldn't want to miss out on.




 

The biggest Glorietta event happened last November 29 when it broke the Guinness World record with the big...

Q&A: Surfer Girl Waves

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, December 1, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Hi Dior. I saw one of your photos in beach waves. How did you achieve that? I always end up with just tight parlor curls!

A: Achieving tousled waves ala Califirnia surfer girl, even without the sea salt and sand, is possible with the right hairstyling tool. Your ordinary straight-barrel curler isn't enough to create beach waves, unfortunately. Luckily though, 
Goody has made a wave iron, or the "Heat Wave Creator," that has an indented ripply barrel so twirling is a breeze to produce mermai...

Road-Testing Your Products

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, November 11, 2012, In : Announcements 
With the endless varieties of beauty and lifestyle products in the market, it's just so hard to make informed decisions on which ones are worth your buck. And in our age and time, the most effective beauty products don't come cheap! Buying full-sized products always feel like a gamble, which most of the time is a 50-50 hit or miss. Don't you just wish there are trial sized samples for everything so we won't be tossing too many bottles (and dinero) of products that didn't work for us?

Q&A: Hair Heat Protectants

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 5, 2012,
Q: My hair has been damaged due to continuous hairstyling with heated tools. How can I prevent more damage? I can't live without my hair irons!

A: I understand that for most women, giving up their heated tools such as curling irons and straighteners is not an option. If this is so, protecting your hair from heat damage is absolutely crucial to maintaining healthy and beautiful hair. How? Heat protectants.

Pinkbox: No more Bad Hair Days!

Studies show that next to our faces, women are most concerned on their hair.

No wonder Pinkbox, after ten good years of business, has grown to be one of our country's largest accessory chain store.

To celebrate Pinkbox' success, press and bloggers were invited to the launch of its newest hair enhancers the donut bun and hair puff. Here are som...

Q&A: Growing Hair Faster

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 15, 2012, In : Tips 

Q
: Hi Dior, I noticed your hair grew so fast! I'm trying to grow my hair as well. How can I give it a growth spurt?

A: Thanks for noticing, but it actually took me a year and a half to reach this length from a bob! Sad to say, but that there's no definite way of making hair grow faster. Hair length is determined by genetics, age and hormonal fluctuations. You can help hair reach its maximum length by protecting it from splitting, which leads to breakage. I like to go to the salon once in three...

Beauty Buys from Grocery Shopping

As always, I went through the beauty section first. And my, my, was I surprised when I saw the shelves with a lot of new brands and products.

Q&A: Washing Hair Everyday

Q: Hi Dior, I like to wash my hair everyday, but I keep on hearing that it's bad for your hair. Is this true?

A: I also like washing my hair everyday. Who can blame us with the humid and hot weather we need to deal with everyday? To answer your question, no, washing your hair daily isn't a bad thing, but there are a few things that you should be aware of. Over-washing your hair can strip your scalp from natural oils, making your hair look less shiny. Also, if you're using shampoo that has a ve...

Fall 2011 Top 10 Beauty Trends

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 27, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Crackle nail polish; orange eyeshadow; hair feathers. The beauty trends of spring and summer were audacious, bohemian, and sometimes, downright insane.

Luckily, for our beauty sanity, the trends for this fall are way more understated. Models on runways were rocking modern takes on classic looks with bold brows, skin-flattering lip colors, and barely there foundation. Here are 10 makeup looks from Fall 2011 Fashion Week that will help you tiptoe into the new season.

Even Nicole Does The Fringe

Bangs, bangs, bangs! One of th biggest hair trend that just won't die already caught Nicole Kidman. The famous Aussie actress sported her new ginger fringe with an extra-long ponytail (from Fall’s big trend) last week at CMT Music Awards in Nashville. This makes me want to rethink chopping some of my locks into a fringe as well. If only hair grows that fast!

Q&A: Hair Damage from Ponytails

Q: Is it damaging to wear your hair in a ponytail every day? I think I look better with my hair in a ponytail but I'm scared it the elastics damage my hair.

A: I, too, am currently loving the elegance of a ponytail especially now that I'm in the middle of growing my hair out. Unfortunately, your suspicions are right: Tying your hair back every single day can be damaging to your locks, unless you practice some tress TLC. To keep this style without causing breakage, follow these two rules. Fir...

Going Grey at 25

"That first silver strand is a defining moment – and used to signal the start of middle age. For a woman, it’s one of the most defining moments of getting older — that day when you peer into the mirror and spot your very first silver strand of hair,” says Claire Coleman of Daily Mail UK.

A woman expects her first grey hair to appear in her late 30’s or 40’s. But new research reveals a worrying trend. The alarming news for women today is that we are losing our natural hair color ...

Top Beauty Trends at The 68th Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Three reasons why I love Golden Globes:

2. They mix all of our favorite stars from film and TV.
3. We get to see the latest trends.

Loud Lips

A handful of stars brightened their pearly whites with poppy pout polish. Natalie Portman and Julia Stiles both picked petal pink, while Piper Perabo swiped on a fresh red, and Jayma Mays chose an orange hue.

Retro Hair

Do Men Prefer Long Hair?

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, December 15, 2010, In : Celebrities 
A recent story in People claims Pete Wentz actually isn't a fan of wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's recently-cropped hair. Her new cut is sharp and crisp—she looks sophisticated, more like the hip young mom she is and less like a teenage pop star she used to be. But it isn't really a surprise that no matter how much I like her new style, her husband might not. The beauty lore has always been that men prefer women to have long hair. In my own life, it proves certainly as true. I've had a chin-len...

ScarJo's Shorter Bob

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, In : Celebrities 

One of the things that makes me rethink growing my locks long is a Hollywood celebrity pulling off a fab short haircut. I almost got distracted and wanted to call my hairstylist to book an appointment when I saw Scarlett Johansson’s summer bob in its shorter crop version. At the Mango Fashion Awards in Barcelona last week, ScarJo sported an even choppier version of the original cut, which now grazes the nape of her neck with thinned out, longer wisps in front. I am so tempted right now.

Kate Moss' New Bangs

I find it odd that Kate Moss experiments on her fashion wardrobe a lot but doesn’t really put any thought on doing the same when it comes to beauty. That’s why it was such a surprise to catch her in a new beauty make-over: bangs! The supermodel and trendsetter, who set off a hair craze back in 2007 when she initially cut herself some brow-grazing fringe, returned to the style at the London release party for Bryan Ferry’s new album, Olympia—for which her famous face provides the cover ...

Just a few days ago though, Stewart has returned to her roots for fall, vaunting a deep chestnut hue at Spike TV’s Scream 2010 awards last weekend. The dark shade transition is perfect especially for the cold months ahead—despite having been fans of her ginger strands. Which of the two hair colors do you ...

Going Ombré

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 8, 2010, In : Announcements 
I'm seriously tired dying my hair while growing it. If I keep up with the rate and frequency I dye, my hair would really 'die'. It was fun changing haircolors as often as I could when I was sporting short 'dos. I didn't need to deal with dry and damaged locks since I cut them every month anyways. But now that I'm growing my hair, it's such a hassle to maintain the color and the highlights. I was thinking it'd be wise to dye it all in my natural hair color brown but I don't want my hair to und...

How young is too young to attend Milan fashion shows? Apparently, there's no age restriction as Willow Smith—daughter of Will and Jada—turned up at a few of the bigger Milan shows with her perfectly toned mom. I was intrigued and yes, even impressed by her front-row beauty and fashion choices. The nine-year-old’s most outlandish sartorial decision perhaps came  in the form of a bold-shouldered snow leopard jacket that she wore to Ferregamo's show. But even that piece of exceptional oute...

Does the Hair Make the Woman?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Sienna Miller has been boho royalty since she made her grand entrance on the public stage during her first romance with Jude Law. In addition to her fringe-with-everything mentality and a collection of summer music festival-friendly vintage sunglasses, it was her long, flaxen hair that earned her the neo-hippie cred—always middle-parted and always with a slight natural wave. Fast-forward a couple years to “nanny gate,” and a wispy breakup bob defined her single-and-loving-it appearance....

But the pop star-cum-designer’s most memorable coiffing expedition would have to be the bob—which she made her own with super-sleek asymmetry in brunette and blond incarnations back in 2007, thus earning the oft-replicated style its own moniker, the “pob.” After dabbling in some extended ...

Leighton Meester Lightens Up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Celebrities 

As Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester is a bad-girl brunette. But as international ambassador for Herbal Essences, the actress/singer is playing a new role: dirty blonde. Meester, whose hair is naturally flaxen, dyes it for the hit CW series, but at a photo call to fête her new spokesperson deal in Madrid, she was looking decidedly less devious sporting a honey-colored side part and loose waves. What say you: better off dark and brooding, or is blonder the better course? Persona...

The Side Braid

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

It was the near-official style of spring, and given the way the side braid keeps showing up at events, I'm going to bet that it keeps on keepin’ on for summer, too. The latest spokesperson to rep the slung-over-the-shoulder plait is one Sessilee Lopez, who took a low-lying version of the look for a spin at the 2010 Operation Smile Annual Gala last week in New York. I'm still not sure how we feel about the casual coif turning into acceptable cocktail-hour fare, thanks to Spring runway shows ...

Renée’s New ‘Do

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, April 26, 2010, In : Celebrities 

After sporting a chic and uniform chin-length crop for the past year or so, Renée Zellweger has decided to change things up a little bit, debuting a spunkier new coif—with fringe!—at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of My Own Love Song last week. The piece-y look reminds me of a less layered version of the famous shag Sally Hershberger gave Meg Ryan back in the day (thus entitling her to charge $800 for haircuts from then on), and seems to be working with Zellweger’s cherubic cheeks ...

Halle Berry’s Hair-Raising Antics

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Since parting ways with her caramel highlights and chin-length bob last year, Halle Berry has been successfully working a short crop with a little added length on top. Recently, we’ve noticed that she’s taken that extra step in the styling department, using a wax to sculpt said length into spikes, instead of treating it to a softer tousle. What do you think of the style: too much “edge" that only a model like Agyness Deyn can pull off, or can you never really have enough—especially if...

Sandra Bullock: Best of Oscars 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Days before the Academy Awards, critics were saying Sandra Bullock had a very odd chance of winning the Oscar. Well, the actress didn't think so as she came in the show red-carpet ready, prepped with Best Actress-caliber beauty by Glam Squad headed by celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin for Chanel Beauty and hairstylist Adir Abergel for Frédéric Fekkai.

Sandra looked absolutely deserving of the award she took home with her modern-classy Hollywood makeup: dewy skin, soft eyes, and a bold red...

Who Cuts Your Hair?

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, February 28, 2010, In : Reviews 
To my friends who've asked who does my hair and to random acquaintances who've asked where I had my haircut done, this blog entry is for you:


January 2009 - February 2010
  

I've always had long black one-length hair when I was in kindergarten until my last year in grade school. No wonder after discovering hair dyes and different haircuts, I always grow tired of the look of my hair and maintain a style for only a month or two. Known to my friends as someone whose hair would look differently get-...

70's Punk Hair Extensions

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Colored hair streaks will remain popular through the Fall, and if hair colorist Eva Scrivo has anything to say about it, they’ll be adopted by even the classiest of ladies. There was no Manic Panic or Streekers to be found backstage at Cynthia Rowley last week; instead, Scrivo had come armed with mounds of crimped hair extensions in varying shades of peach, teal, navy, amethyst, and cassis. “I used the straight additives from Wella Professionals Koleston Perfect Special Mix,” Scrivo exp...

Kérastase Mini Set

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 5, 2010, In : Contests 
When a former colleague from L'Oreal, product manager of Kérastase, invited me to join a contest for the brand he's handling, I can only say nothing but yes. Aside from the fact that he's a friend, every being of me adores Kérastase entirely -- from their top selling Oléo Relax Serum when I still had long straight natural black hair, to their Bain Chroma Riche when I finally decided to chop off my locks and highlight it with at least three tones. One trial of my first ever kérastase shamp...

Nicole Richie: From Blonde to Brunette

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : Celebrities 
This time of year, the decreased amount of sunlight typically has us thinking about going a shade or two darker with our hair. Nicole Richie seems to be on the same tip, displaying at the March of Dimes Fourth Annual Celebration of Babies gala last weekend a transitional color that utilized face-framing highlights to assist in the grow-out process from blond to brunette. Are you a fan of the mother of two’s fall look, or do you prefer her more SoCal and sun-kissed?

Hair'em, Scare'em

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 3, 2009, In : Reviews 
Forget oil pastels and watercolors. Hair is emerging as both artistic medium and muse of late. Between architectural experiments on runway and recent films like Chris Rock’s Good Hair, shiny, frizzy, straight, and curly strands alike are taking center stage. Hair’em Scare’em (Gestalten, 2009) will be released stateside this month and aims to add to this increasingly popular discourse with 224 pages of artistic expression in graphic, interior, fashion, and jewelry design as well as photo...

Drew Whips It

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Celebrities 

With fashion week in full swing, it’s easy to forget that there are pictures being taken outside of New York City right now. But Drew Barrymore snapped us to attention with a new hairstyle last night at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Whip It. Perhaps taking cues from Daphne Guinness’ popular skunk stripe, Barrymore decided to play with black and white, blunt-cutting her medium-length blond locks and dip-dying the ends in dark pigment. It’s interesting, to say the le...

The Fishtail Braid

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, September 13, 2009, In : Trend Reports 
The fishtail braid is a style we’ve always admired from afar but have never really been able to master. So we couldn’t resist the opportunity to get a step-by-step guide from Nackie Karcher, owner and head stylist of The Parlour Brooklyn, who perfected the look at Hayden-Harnett’s presentation this week. Inspired by the designers’ “stranded in the desert” direction, Karcher spritzed Davines Defining Texturizer on models’ hair to add density and volume, and then gave each of them...

Rihanna Amuses Herself

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 4, 2009, In : Celebrities 

I'm not exactly sure where to begin here—with Rihanna’s adorable, front-tie headscarf or her super sick zebra-print nails (are they Minx? Hand designs? Airbrush? So many questions!). Suffice it to say, she heeded Six Flags’ “It’s Playtime” motto on a visit to the Valencia, California, park yesterday. Personally, I'm not amused with her latest beauty roller-coaster ride.

SJP In SATC, Redux

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 4, 2009, In : Celebrities 

As most New Yorkers (and diehard Sex and the City fans) know, the fearsome foursome have begun shooting the sequel to the acclaimed HBO series’ first film. Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted on set yesterday in Manhattan sporting two different hairstyles—tight corkscrews and a looser version with cascading waves—which got us to thinking about some of her best tresses from the show’s almost six-year run. And so, we thought we’d conjure a meeting of the minds and give you access to the ...

Overnight Hair Repair

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, July 30, 2009, In : Reviews 
I used to be scared to dye my hair with any colorant up until three years ago when I decided to chop my long locks. You see, with short hair, you can do pretty much whatever without feeling guilty that you're slowly killing your hair with chemicals. After all, all those "dead" and damaged part of your strands gets cut off anyway every trim time. However, when trying to grow out your short 'do to long 'do again, the effort doubles up as you need to make sure that your grown out hair isn't goin...

Katherine Heigl’s The Ugly Truth: Pretty Or Not?

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 27, 2009, In : Celebrities 




Katherine Heigl appears to have arrived at that crossroads in her career faced by so many others before her, that moment when a conscious decision is made to leave the blonde bombshell associations behind and head for more respectable brunette pastures. Or perhaps she was just in the mood for a change. Either way, the once and future Grey’s Anatomy star turned up to the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie The Ugly Truth with a new set of auburn locks. (Whether it will help or hinder her a...

Michelle Watch: It’s A Bob!

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 27, 2009, In : Celebrities 


Those J.Crew cardi sets and the Jason Wu inaugural gown may have made headlines, but this right here is front-page news if we’ve ever seen it: The First Lady has appeared to cut her hair, foregoing the increasingly popular "lob" in favor of a shorter, more conservative version of Posh Spice’s early trips to the chopping block. While the look becomes the First Lady (there are few things that couldn’t), we are a little disappointed with what seems to be a move toward the more traditiona...
