I have to admit, being an LP editor is a pretty sweet gig. In fact, I would say there are days when we are downright spoiled. Take yesterday for example. My day on the job included attending Byron & Tracey Salon's Pre-Emmy's Indulgence Retreat for an afternoon of refreshments, swag and pampering alongside Hollywood's elite - oh and getting a fantastic cut from one of the salon's super talented stylists.

Marco Pelusi Hair Studio hosted a lovely event the other night welcoming colorist/stylist/extension artist Cherry Petenbrink to the Pelusi team.

So I was fortunate enough to be invited to try out the new Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger in-salon treatment this past weekend during the company's annual Gathering. Let me be the first to say, I was initally dubious as I mistakenly thought, "Oh no, not another keratin treatment!" But this is not that kind of treatment. Rather, it is imbued with patented KeraTriplex, a blend of three proteins derived from sheep's wool.
