Recently I was honored to Visit Michaeljohn Salon, and what a treat! Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, the cozy space was jamming when I arrived on Friday afternoon. I met with Justin Surh, an accomplished stylist and colorist with 25+ years experience. He worked with Toni&Guy and Vidal Sassoon in London before he moved stateside. In addition to styling for the runway, editorial and TV commercials, Justin has worked with some of the best-known celebs. Julia Roberts? Check.

An interview with Emma Hack, the makeup artist behind the music video for Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" Gotye's hit song "Somebody That I Used to Know" is everywhere. The song is inescapable on the radio and even on television. The music video for the song has received over 175 million hits on YouTube, and has no doubt influenced the song's rise to number one on the charts. The unique concept for the music video has been parodied on Saturday Night Live and inspired a heap of copycats on YouTube.

Here are my prime picks for pretty peepers:

Having just opened a new location in Beverly Hills, California, celeb stylist and salon owner Kristoff Ball, invited the Launchpad team for cuts and blowouts at his new eponymous digs. A mixture of eclectic art pieces, self-crafted furniture (did we mention Ball is also an accomplished carpenter) and a cool rockstar vibe (oh yeah, he's a musician too!), the atmosphere is anything but boring; just like Ball, who regaled us with exciting stories from his many years in the biz while knocking out bombshell manes in no time.

As the age old saying goes, "It's not the destination, but the journey." My journey, or at least this little blog, begins with a break-up. My girlfriend and I, after three and a half years, recently broke up. As everyone knows, break-ups are hard and they are painful, especially when you live together.

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.
