4 Ways To Be More Green
April 22, 2017
In honor of Earth Day, Matrix Artistic Director Dan Csicsai and Matrix Stylist Breck Csicsai are offering up a few simple steps to help the environment. And Matrix would know, since their Biolage R.A.W. (Real. Authentic. Wholesome.) line is their first step toward producing an environmentally friendly haircare line—the ingredients are minimally molecularly unchanged from their natural state with up to 50% natural-origin ingredients, and the bottles are made up of up to 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.
Change lighting from fluorescent and diligent lighting to LED lighting. It saves energy, it’s more efficient, and it’s cost effective.
Implement recycling and trash bins—and recycle everything you can!
Instead of using paper napkins, plates or Styrofoam cups, use regular dishes that are washable and reusable to help reduce trash.
Instead of buying bottles of water, use a pitcher with a filtration system and pour into reusable containers or glasses. No more plastic trash!

A Tail Of Two…
April 17, 2017
Coachella always brings with it too-cute fashions and hip hair, and Vanessa Hudgens never disappoints–she’s always in attendance, and always on point, fashion-wise. This year, the actress brought out super-long lengths worn in classic pig-tail fashion.
