What could be a better way to celebrate Grammy Awards weekend than with a rockstar blowout?! I stopped by the Grammy Pop-Up Beauty Bar at Cristophe Salon hosted by L'Oréal Professionnel Stylist Roy Teeluck for the most amazing blowout by stylist Mia Moore. Mia's secret ingredient was Roy Teeluck's signature "hair plumping" collagen product Concentre de Collagene. "The results from applying collagen to the hair and scalp are astonishing. It creates an enriched environment for hair to maintain its optimal health as it grows," explains Teeluck.

It's amazing what a good blowout can do. In honor of celebrating a milestone-worthy birthday, I took time out to visit the fabulous new hybrid blow dry bar in my neighborhood. Located on the very popular Montana Ave. in Santa Monica, California, Séchoir+ not only offers an extensive cut, color and even extension menu, but includes a downright fabulous selection of blowouts to sample, crafted by owner Nava Nabavi.

While we were in Park City, UT for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Kate Bosworth took time out to be honored at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Initiative Gala. She was wearing a stunning Valentino dress which in itself was a work of art, and I didn't want to to anything too "busy" with her hair. I decided that in order to keep it elegant, chic, and best compliment the high neck line of her dress to keep her hair in a simple updo with a messy bun.

I recently visited Tomi Ilic at The Butterfly Loft in Encino, CA, to get my son a trim. Tomi was good enough to give him his first haircut; this was his second. I don't know what it is, but I have a really hard time getting my son's hair cut. It looks way better afterward, but still. Something in me resists. So, in three years, James has only had his hair cut twice. Perhaps it's knowing that he's growing up? Or that I'm afraid that his beautiful copper-red hair will not come back? Or maybe his curls will dissappear?

I'm in Vegas, baby! With over 900 stylists in attendance, Redken's annual Redken Artist Connection (RAC) at the Red Rock Casino and Resort is an event not to be missed. This year's RAC included Fashion Week stylist extraordinaire Guido's 2012 trend collection. From modernized retro coifs to boho braids, the collection is nothing short of stunning. Luckily for clients, RAC attendees got a chance to try their hand at the styles during yesterday's workshops. Even Redken's marketing team jumped into the fun, using each other as models to master the looks

Stylist-extraordinaire Jonelle and me (senior associate editor Alyson Osterman-Kerr)
Well, I have officially been byu-tified! After years of hearing all about the wonder of Byu-ti Hair Therapy in Santa Monica, California, I was able to try out one of their custom-formulated "hair blender" treatments for myself--and believe me, I was not disappointed.
