Springtime Chic Hairstyles

Spring is in the air! Therefore, it’s time for stylistas to update those cold weather looks, infusing the season’s charm and flirty sense of fun! Whether it’s a new cut, style or a way to switch up your day-to-day look without stressing your tresses, Celebrity hairstylist, Amoy Pitters, a New York beauty industry veteran that has styled the locks of such superstars as Naomi Campbell and Rihanna with an unparalleled skill set and signature styles, shares her hot tips on how to stand out this spring.


Mischa Barton

No matter the style – ponytail, chignon, even tousled waves! – bangs always add an alluring sense of refinement with a touch of sexy edginess. Blunt bangs can fuse a sultry modern look to classic styles, while side-swept, layered bangs add a touch of romance to any look. Ready to make a statement? Try choppy bangs!


Sandra Bullock

A touch of fairy tale pretty meets bohemian chic in this spring-perfect look— a celeb-favorite, Amoy perfected this look during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City (at far right). Here are Amoy’s four easy-to-do steps to re-creating the style: Start by applying the volumizing mousse from root to end to achieve texture. Working on dry hair, use a 1-2” curling iron to create soft waves throughout the crown. Next, using a comb, brush back the hair at the root, sweeping the hair to one side and creating a long braid. Continue to comb the braid back to create loose flyaway’s for a soft, renaissance look. Once you’ve applied makeup and chosen an outfit, apply the look’s final touches by spraying a light layer of holding spray to secure any loose hairs.


Want an easy way to makeover your day-to-day look? Clip-on extensions will give you instant length and volume, transforming your look from safe to siren. Amoy’s upcoming line of hair products, Amoy Couture Hair – currently used exclusively at her New York City salon of the same name – is set to feature Amoy Couture Hair Clip-On Extensions that are 100% human hair, can be customized to any fit or style and instantly transform your look. Clip-On Extensions can add volume, length, even highlights! The chic hair accessory is perfect for switching up your style without coloring or cutting your hair. If you want to change the texture, a full set of extensions can help you achieve your style without chemically treating your tresses.


When it comes to hair accessories, simpler is always chicer! Your hair is the ultimate accessory, and when healthy and full of life, there is no need for an over-the-top, oversized headband or clip— let your natural beauty shine through! Want just a touch of sparkle for an evening fĂȘte? Try a neatly adorned pin.

Amoy Pitters

About Amoy Pitters

A New York beauty industry veteran, Amoy Pitters has a passion – and natural talent – for the worlds of hair, beauty and fashion since starting her career. Mentored by industry icon, Odile Gilbert – and featured in the famed work Her Style – Amoy launched her impressive career as a sought-after hair stylist in the fashion industry, booking her career-first fashion show in Paris, styling the locks of the runway models for the Christian Dior couture collection in January 1998. There, recognizing her unique skill set, Amoy was asked by the show’s production team to style the house’s legendary designer John Galliano’s own hair for his final bow. Soon after, Galliano himself began requesting Amoy as his personal hairstylist. Fashion maven Donatella Versace was next in line, after taking notice of Galliano’s newly styled locks. From there, Amoy was in-demand worldwide, styling hair for editorials and fashion shows, and transforming the looks of supermodels, Hollywood starlets, iconic fashion designers, Grammy award-wining musicians and, of course, Amoy’s everyday clients at her modest East Village salon in New York City. Today, her impressive clientele includes: Alicia Keys, Kerry Washington, Mary J. Blige, Joy Bryant, Selita Ebanks and Maggie Rizer.

COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara Review

COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion

The COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara ($8.99) is not the best mascara out there, but I really like it! Known as COVERGIRL's first volume and length mascara, together in one step for lashes with bold volume and stunningly beautiful length. It is one of the few mascaras that I own that is easy to remove and doesn't break off lashes in the process. It doesn't clump and it adds volume & length - a must if you want lashes to make a statement.


- LashBlast Fusion is smudgeproof and rubproof.
- Contains lash stretching fibers and lash plumping particles to create a dramatic fan of lashes.
- The buildable, lengthening formula works to extend each lash.
- Works together with the super-volumizing brush to deliver up to 2x the volume and length.
- Flexible bristles conform to the lashes for great coverage and a smooth and gentle application.


- Very Black
- Black
- Black Brown
- Brown

COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara ($8.99) will be available nationwide beginning April 2010.

Deal of the Week at The Body Deli - Blueberry Fusion Resurfacing Facial Wash

Blueberry Fusion Resurfacing Facial Wash Was $38.00 Now $30

Deal Ends on April 3rd

Click here for my review.

This resurfacing cleanser is so effective because it is formulated with fresh blueberry, acai fruit puree and powerful fruit based alpha-hydroxy acids. This cleanser is brimming with phyto-nutrients such as antioxidants, carotenoids, anthocyanins and polyphenols. Alpha hydroxy acids work as an exfoliant, they cause the cells of the epidermis to become "unglued" allowing the dead skin cells to slough off, making room for regrowth of new skin. Alpha hydroxy acids help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Alpha hydroxy acids are also effective in improving wrinkling, roughness, and mottled pigmentation due to photo-damaged skin.

This groundbreaking technology delivers unprecedented skin benefits by feeding the skin antioxidants and skin nourishing organic superfoods while providing the clinical advantage of a deeper exfoliation that provides visible change to the appearance and texture of the skin.

Karma Organic Spa Review

You will find organic spa products such as non-toxic polishes, organic scrubs, organic lotions, & essential oils which are free of toluene, formaldehyde, & phthalate (DBP) at Karma Organic Spa. Their very own brand of Karma Organic Spa nail polishes are 100 percent natural and are comprised of more than 50 colors, including glow-in-the-dark shades for children. Karma is one of the first in the US to have a chemical-free organic soy mixture nail polish remover which comes in Lavender, Tea Tree, or Unscented. Their lotions and scrubs are homemade with recipes including mouth-watering ingredients such as ground almonds and brown sugar. They are dedicated to providing the healthiest organic products to their customers.

I received the Velvet Rose and Island Delight Nail Polish ($9.99 each). Both long-lasting colors are absolutely beautiful. Personally, I think they dry faster than most nail polishes. The picture for the Island Delight Nail Polish doesn't do much justice for it. The picture makes it look like an Apricot color, but it is a very light pink with a subtle shimmer! I think it is much lighter than the swatch color that is shown on their site. These colors are the perfect colors for Spring. I wouldn't mind trying the Mystical Knights, Midnight Passion or Metallic Venom as well - all are bold, but look so beautiful (and start with an M, lol).

I love, love, love their Nail Polish Remover in Tea Tree ($12). No toxic, headache inducing nail polish remover here! This nail polish remover has a very herbal smell, but it isn't overpowering. The smell of Tea Tree is a bit subtle. It removes nail polish effectively without the use of chemicals. We all know that most nail polish removers dry out the nails, but this one actually moisturizes them! I like that. No, I LOVE that! You might even want to wash your hands before reapplying a new nail polish since the remover leaves behind an oily residue. It is 100% biodegradable and 100% soy based. It is free of any petroleum ingredients, non-carcinogenic, derived from Farm Crops which in turn supports American farming and packaged in 100% recyclable glass bottles. It also comes in Lavender or Unscented with Vitamin E Oil.
