Happy Thanksgiving week! What are you thankful for? Today I’m thankful for healthy hair! Jokes aside, I can’t wait to show you our fourth video from our Aussie series. My model, Hadley, has long gorgeous hair that she wears in many ways. She colors is, curls it, ponies it and buns it. So using products to prevent breakage is very important. In this video, I’ll be using the Aussie Anti-Breakage Spray before blow drying and finishing up with a pretty pony tail. Enjoy!
It’s still fashion week for another day here in NYC, and yesterday was J.Crew’s presentation. Jake went as press, and got these photos for me. They had lots of hats in the collection, and those who weren’t wearing hats were wearing painfully tight pony tails and tangerine lip color. Did you know a perfect, slicked pony tail is one of the hardest things to master in the hair world? In fact, personally, they are my weakness. You get it all perfectly smoothed out, and one false move forces you to start over. I took a 3 hour class on ponies once. They used about half a bottle of mega-hold gel and had the model lay down during the styling and everything. I thought it was a little much, but afterwords she looked like she had had a face-lift.
Pony rant over.
This hat below is my favorite! I have a panama hat, but it is pretty cheap. I think I’ll invest in a nicer one next spring.
Resuming pony rant…There is something amazing about a girl who can pull of a slicked pony. I love to have hair all messy around my face, so to me, slicked hair is out of my comfort zone. But look at this girl below. She is such a babe with her tight hair and her crazy cheek bones.
Do you wear a sleek pony?

My go-to hair style for running/exercising is definitely a mermaid braid and a pony tail. The mermaid braid keeps my fringe out of my face and looks cute so I only feel red faced, sweaty and smelly instead of adding ugly haired to that too. I have some great stretchy headbands from Aasics that work great too, but I always prefer the mermaid braid.
Jake took this photo of me during a 5 mile race in central park last Saturday. It was at 9 am and it was H O T hot.
I also snapped this photo with my phone when we were walking to the starting line. Can you believe this is in the middle of the city? So beautiful! (Not too far in from the 102nd street entrance on the west side.)
Hey everyone! I just wanted to say thank you for liking my Facebook fan page! Over the weekend, we hit 1,000 likes! I’m so happy!
I want to do a giveaway soon to thank you all!
Guys, go pick up some bungees at your nearest beauty supply store and practice using them. They’re awesome! Especially for you girls with super long hair, super thick hair, or you lovers of the sleek pony. Let’s get started!
I love this girl and this photo and her dress and her hair. There is nothing wrong with wearing a see-through nightie in some sort of wheat field, guys. As long as you have a pretty pony tail! Let’s try it.
This is just a simple side pony, there is little or no teasing at the crown. The biggest thing that makes it so pretty is her layers that probably hit a little around her shoulders. And I can bet she has some kind of texturizing spray in there.
If that’s not working for you, did you know you can TEASE the pony part? I did it here.
I wish I remembered where I got this pic from. Sorry to not credit it!
Sometimes when I’m hanging out with friends, I get a sudden urge to mess up/play with their hair. I did this little number on Amanda Blair the other night when we were just hanging out and chatting. I didn’t spend too much time on it, maybe 5 minutes, but I love it.
