In order to recreate this look, follow these steps from Newkirk using products from John Frieda:

· Newkirk started by applying John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all over Jessica’s wet hair.
· Then he blew out her hair using a large round brush to give her tons of volume and a lot of shine.
· After blow drying, Newkirk parted her hair into 2 inch sections (starting from the nape and working up).
· Then he curled the hair with a large 1 ½ inch curling iron. He made sure to secure each section with a duckbill clip and allowed each curl to set.
· Once curls were set, he removed the hair clips and with a flat brush, gently brushed out each curl.
· Newkirk placed a small amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème and smoothed it through Jessica’s hair to achieve a perfectly smooth look.
· After, with a large comb, he parted the hair and smoothed it down with a touch of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel.
· Finally he manipulated Jessica’s curls with his finger and a brush. To finish and lock the style he sprayed John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.

Would you Spend top dollar on Kids Clothing?

In today’s issue of the New York Post, The Fashion Reporter’s own Priscilla Monteiro was featured along with her children Vera-Angela Applyrs age 4 and Yasmine age 5months. The story highlights Priscilla as a mom in fashion who splurges on her children from time to time. Although she is known to mix high with low, quality and timelessness is always a factor. “What I used to spend on myself, I now spend on my children. I am in a place in my life right now where I spend less on myself so that my children can have an even brighter future” says Priscilla. The mom-a-nista shops at The Children’s Place, H&M, Gymboree, Jacardi, Zara, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf and Saks as well as high end consignment shops for her children. “Labels don’t particularly matter but my parents always put me in the best and in my opinion, we all deserve the best” says Priscilla.

20140325-114459.jpg

Working in fashion has its perks and exposes insiders to the finer things in life. Priscilla spends a great deal of time and money at the hair and nail salon to upkeep her look. She also spends money on high grade extensions particularly from Janet Hair Collection. “Hair and beauty are a must in any industry, therefore I believe in the best which is why I stand by Janet’s Pure Virgin Remy hair which I blend in with my own naturally long tresses” Priscilla adds.

20140325-114740.jpg

When it comes to beauty, she only uses the best from Algenist, Sensai, Nars, butter london, ghd and John Frieda styling tools. Being backstage and front row at some of the top fashion shows mixed with singing ABC’s to her children, certainly keeps Priscilla grounded.

Running a popular fashion blog, designing shoes and being a parent is more than a handful but the rewards and joy are priceless.

John Frieda Frizz Ease is Creating a Movement to Inspire Women to put Best Hair & Self Forward

20140324-110458.jpg

We all have those days when things aren’t going our way, and it often starts with our hair. When stress is building, time is tight, and the humidity is up, sometimes we can’t handle dealing with our hair on top of everything else, so we give up and put it up. But when you surrender to frizz and throw your hair up in a tired bun or pull it back into an “I don’t care” ponytail, then you feel like you are not putting your best self forward. John Frieda® Hair Care experts understand that women face this problem all too often, and the number one culprit behind these pulled back moments of defeat is frizz. Now, with the newly re-launched Frizz Ease® collection, the brand team is setting out to start a movement to inspire women everywhere to “Never Pull Back,” on their hair or in life.

With the debut of the new online resource, www.NeverPullBack.com, now women everywhere can learn about embracing the Frizz Ease® brand frizz-free lifestyle that lets them confidently wear their hair down every day. Just like the battle against frizz is ongoing, so is the fight against insecurity.

Prevent Lice with Healthy Hair tips from Cozy’s Cuts for Kids

Attention all parents: there’s an outbreak of a new strain of lice—dubbed “super lice”—that is more resistant to over the counter lice treatments. That’s why Cozy Friedman, a mom of two and founder of Cozy’s Cuts for Kids salons in New York City, recommends using preventative measures to scare away lice attacks, all summer long.

20140314-133145.jpg
“Lice happens. It can happen to anyone! But it doesn’t have to happen to your kids.First off, you have to educate your children about lice and how it’s contracted. Then you have to teach you kids how to avoid it,” says Cozy. “For example, tell them never to share hats, brushes or combs with their friends and to use their own pillowcases.”

Another secret weapon to keep the buggers at bay is to invest in an anti-lice shampoo and conditioner like Cozy’s So Cozy BOO! Shampoo and Conditioner (14.50 each)—a cult-favorite among the urban mommy set. These simple and cost effective formulas utilize natural lice repellants such as pure tea tree, rosemary and lavender oils, which means no nasties!
