Today is the last day of summer! So it’s time to make conclusions.
Here are some posts that I really liked:
What was the best about this summer? What are your plans for fall?
This summer was a strange one. The best things were that I took care of some problems and started something totally new!
I have a lot of plans for Fall 2009. But first of all I need a vacation and I will have one soon. Can’t wait!
Do you like Angelina Jolie? Do you want to create looks that were created for her by famous makeup artist for yourself? It’s very easy! Just read this post and you will know how to do it!

What was Jennifer’s hair like when she first came to your salon?
I’ve been doing Jennifer’s hair forever. When I first met her, she had long, one-length hair with bangs, and she was like, “Don’t cut my hair—I want my hair long.” But I’m a hairdresser, so I obviously cut her hair and told her she needed to grow her bangs out. I cut a couple inches off and layered it from her bangs down to the ends. Then I taught her how to pin the bangs over with a bobby pin and make them flat—remember how everyone was doing that on the first year of Friends? Six weeks later, she came back to the salon for another haircut—her bangs were longer, and we just cut a little bit more off her length. The next thing you know, her bangs were down to her chin, and the rest of her hair was at her shoulders in these long, loose layers that sort of flipped out—and that’s what we called the Rachel.
What was the Friends hairstyle inspired by?
I’m always inspired by other hairdressers, models, fashion, and magazines like ELLE. For the Rachel, I was inspired by a model named Beri Smither—Ward Stegerhoek did her hair at the time. She was wearing this really great shag haircut—it wasn’t the Rachel, but it inspired me. These days, though, Jen likes her hair on the longer side with her layers grown out.
What’s Jennifer’s natural hair texture?
She has naturally wavy, medium-texture hair, and she has what you would call good hair—it goes curly really easily if you scrunch it, and if you blow-dry it straight, it stays straight but with body.
What shampoo and conditioner does she use?
She loves having her hair shampooed fresh and clean. She shampoos and conditions pretty much every day—if she’s going for the day-old-hair look, she prefers to create it using products. The shampoo and conditioner she’s using right now are my shampoo and conditioner. I used her and Courteney Cox as my guinea pigs. Jennifer uses the products every day. She also loves deep conditioners—I’ll do professional treatments at my salon using Shu Uemura products.
What hair products did she use before she came to you?
Oh, God, we used to laugh—she loved Aussie 3 Minute Miracle back in the day. We would use that stuff. We loved the smell of it. They also have that Aussie Sprunch Hairspray—we’d use that, too.
How does Jennifer keep her hair looking great between salon visits?
It seems that I haven’t seen new photos of Angelina for a long time. But at last here is the photo of Angelina Jolie at the Inglourious Basterds Premiere in Los Angeles. She looks so slim and her hair is lighter. Do you want to know how her hairstyle was created? This look was created by hairstylist David Babaii. And here is how he created it:
First, David applied Hair Polish to her entire mane followed by spraying Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier to the root area for lift and volume. Next, he parted hair into 3 sections (This is David’s “key” signature tip). Beginning at the nape area, he used the David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer with the nozzle attachment for direct styling.
To achieve her look, David blow dried her hair using a large round brush to smooth tresses straight and shiny. When done drying the entire head, he took large sections and wrapped hair around the same round brush. With the blow dryer and nozzle in hand, blow an additional blast of hot air for 10 seconds and then hit the cool button for a burst of cool air: this sets the shape. Carefully release the section from the brush and continue until you have completed the whole head.
To finish, spray Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.

I already made a post : “How to take care of your hair in summer“. In this post I would like to review shampoo that I currently use.
What is written:
Like skin, hair exposed to the sun requires gentle cleansing and refreshment. BC Sun Guardian hair & body shampoo cleanses and re-moisturises. It leaves hair and scalp refreshed and soothed. This Bonacure Sun Guardian Shampoo is ideal for daily cleansing of sun-stressed hair. Rebalances the moisture level of sun-stressed hair leaving the hair & scalp refreshed and soothed. You’ll feel the difference as the Aloe Vera extract re-balances moisture levels, and the Allantoin soothes sun-stressed scalp and skin. The Clear formula leaves hair refreshed and replenished

Result: Healthy, shiny and refreshed hair for long-lasting beauty. Directions of Use: Massage into wet hair and rinse out thoroughly. For an extended soothing result, leave for 2 minutes.
What do I think:
Shampoo really does everything that is promised. It is one of the best shampoo that I’ve ever tried. It can be compared only to L’oreal Professional and Kerastase. Several weeks ago I was at the salon having a haircut and the products that were used were L’oreal Professional. Of course my hair looked perfect after all the procedures. But I want to admit that when I use BC Sun Guarding at home my hair looks almost the same. This shampoo is clear and smells nice. After you use it your hair looks beautiful, shiny and smooth. After a week you can see great improvements plus it moisturizes your hair after damage that sun causes.
