4 Ways To Be More Green
April 22, 2017

be more green

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.

 1.
Change lighting from fluorescent and diligent lighting to LED lighting. It saves energy, it’s more efficient, and it’s cost effective.

2.
Implement recycling and trash bins—and recycle everything you can!

3.
Instead of using paper napkins, plates or Styrofoam cups, use regular dishes that are washable and reusable to help reduce trash.

4.
Instead of buying bottles of water, use a pitcher with a filtration system and pour into reusable containers or glasses. No more plastic trash!

Have you been admiring actress Minnie Driver’s curls on her hit TV show Speechless? We have, and wanted to know the secret to how she gets them looking so positively lovely. ““Viviscal works! It thickens my hair and makes it shine,” she shared. “The overall health of my hair changed dramatically after taking that product for three months.” A-HA! Adding it to our beauty shopping list as we admire Minnie’s curls right here…

A Katherine Makeover
April 19, 2017

JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE - "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. EST and features a diverse lineup of guests that includes celebrities, athletes, musical acts, comedians and human-interest subjects, along with comedy bits and a house band. The guests for Tuesday, April 18 included Katherine Heigl ("Unforgettable"), Rob Delaney ("Catastrophe") and musical guest Dreamcar. (ABC/Randy Holmes) KATHERINE HEIGL

Did you happen to catch Katherine Heigl on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night promoting her new film Unforgettable? The actress has traded in her usually long locks for a totally cute short bob with a mix of blonde and brunette slices of delicious color. And we love the curls-and-waves texture she had going on–a nice change-up from her usually stick-straight locks! Looking good, Katherine!

A Tail Of Two…
April 17, 2017

tail of two

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. Secured just below the chin, the crown shows a little volume under the hat, while the tails themselves are fine and fluffy. Easy, chic and oh-so hip!
