Attention Shoppers! Good Hair Day Everyday with @TIGIHaircareUSA

From New York to Europe, The TIGI Creative Team has been busy prepping models backstage for various fashion shows.  Just last week, CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director, Nick Irwin created amazing hair looks for the Antipodium, Mark Fast, Osman and John Richmond runways.

ANTIPODIUM LFW Spring Summer 2014
Hair by Nick Irwin, Global Creative Director for Catwalk by TIGI
Inspiration: Antipodium’s SS14 collection is inspired by the ultimate shop girl – that girl who is ethereally cool, drop dead gorgeous and effortlessly confident. The lovechild of candy-coloured Mrs Slocombe of ‘Are You Being Served?” and Cher ‘Clueless’ Horowitz.
Overall Look: Attention Shoppers! “Sweater Hair”

 

Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 11.57.40 AMHow-to:
1. On dry hair, apply CATWALK by Catwalk by TIGI Curlesque Lightweight Mousse to the roots only. Use a colouring brush to paint the mousse onto the roots, keeping the middle and ends of the hair clear and natural.
2. Wherever the hair falls, create a natural, low parting in the hair and then, using a medium round bristle brush, blow dry the hair so that it becomes naturally straight.
3. To add a bit more character, secure either side of the hair with a random bobby pin.
4. If needed, lightly coat with CATWALK by TIGI Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray.

“The look that we created for Antipodium’s SS14 collection really brings to life the phrase ‘Attention Shoppers!’. The hair look is confident yet unkempt, with a quite nod to early 90s grunge but kept clean – this girl is uber cool and will definitely grab your attention.”
Nick Irwin, TIGI Global Creative Director

Products Used:
• CATWALK by Catwalk by TIGI Curlesque Lightweight Mousse – $17.95
• CATWALK by TIGI Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray – $20.95

Go Green + Glam with @MyOtherBag

There’s no shame in being a bag lady! I collect satchels and totes like it’s nobody’s business and I’m always searching for my next go-to bag. So when I heard about My Other Bag, I did the happy bag lady dance because this idea is genius.

logo

Born in Los Angeles out of necessity (Santa Monica bans plastic grocery bags in order for residents to reuse and recycle), My Other Bag was founded by designer Tara Martin who needed a cute and comfortable way to tote around groceries without having to reach for her designer bag. Because seriously, who wants to load up their Hermes with sandwich meat and milk?

Fotor0922121733

No more old and ugly canvas bags—My Other Bag is all about style, convenience and of course, going green. And the designs are incredible. From Louis Vuitton to Michael Kors-inspired designs, this line of totes is completely fashionable. And each bag is manufactured in the USA, in the heart of LA—so cool!

newsmyotherbag1

And just so you know you’re in good company, stars such as Jessica Alba, Katie Holmes and Jessica Biel have all been spotted with the My Other Bag. The entire collection retails for under $50 (my Carrie-Cabana Carry All retails for $50) and you can choose from oversized carryalls, totes and pochettes in amazing designs and colors (there’s even a “British Invasion” line of bags!).

Glam it up with the @Glamitco GlamPact!

This past week I took six flights in the space of six days. Do you know how inconvenient it is to pack every bottle of foundation, eye shadow palette and lipstick? So inconvenient. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your looks while in transit.

Meet the GlamPact!

The neatest thing I’ve seen for a while, the GlamPact is a customizable compact makeup kit you can take anywhere. And it includes everything: pressed CC powder, blush/bronzer/highlighter, eye shadows, and lip rouges. Oh, and all the tools you’ll need for applying them such a sponges, a lip brush, cheek fan brush, eyebrow brush, and an eyeliner/eye shadow brush, and a stylus.

But the greatness doesn’t stop there. The GlamPact has a USB cable that hooks up to your computer to recharge the LED lined mirror. And this mirror is amazing. Ordinary mirrors get the job done but switch on the LED mirror and you’ve got yourself an on-the-go makeup salon like no other.

The cosmetic shades the GlamPact comes with are really cool, too. And one of the great things about this product is that when you’re in the mood for a lighter or darker shade of powder or eye shadows, all you have to do is purchase a refill to snap in its place. Simple!

The GlamPact starter set retails for $100 and comes in either black or pink. You can pick it up on the Glam-It website!

TONI&GUY @Hair_Wardrobe Take London Fashion Week By Storm

Fashion never stops—thanks goodness! And this past week all the top designers were putting their creations on show at London Fashion Week (including the debut of Manolo Blahnik). And once again, hairstyles were just as talked about as the clothing styles.

TONI&GUY had some of the most coveted styles of the London catwalks, with their Hair Meet Wardrobe line of styling products (which, incidentally, was just introduced to the U.S. market in August). Matthew Williamson, Todd Lynn and Vivienne Westwood Red Label are just some of the labels that took advantage of this incredible range, via lead stylist Mark Hampton, the Global Hair Ambassador for TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe.

Matthew Williamson: This label’s style was glamour, exhibiting a simple and glossy look that resembled the 70s jet-setter. Hero product? TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Glamour Volume Plumping Whip. This product adds volume and body at the roots and gives flexible texture and movement to the entire style.

Todd Lynn: This label went with a creative look for their hairstyles, with a fierce, rough and rebellious attitude. Hero product? TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Creative Style Spray Wax. Spray wax? Yes! This stuff creates definition and texture and it totally perfect for achieving defined layers in any kind of hairstyle. Simply spritz through towel-dried hair and scrunch before drying—it works like magic.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label: An animalistic inspiration with a touch of glamour is the way this label worked their styles down the catwalk. The look was all about chaotic, voluminous waves of hair that were wild and free. Hero product? TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Glamour Volume Plumping Whip. This gave the hair ferosh texture and achieved that incredible bed head-meets-jungle-woman look we’re all totally craving now!
