Product Obsession: Tangle Teezer

I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend the US press debut of Tangle Teezer. I’m a huge fan of UK beauty blogs and I’ve been seeing the product for quite some time on their sites. I can’t tell you how jealous I’ve been that it hasn’t made its way to the US sooner.

Tangle Teezer is designed to get tangles out of hair, especially wet hair (miracle worker), and it does not cause damage or breakage. I met Shaun P the creator of Tangle Teezer, and his enthusiasm in the brush alone sold me. The event also had two amazing stylists Shane Michael Manieri and John Kovacs from Chris Chase Salon in Chelsea. And what is so great is that they use the product in the salon. Tangle Teezer is definitely doing something right to have the support of New York City salons (there is no tougher critic!). In addition to The Original (blue and pink brush seen below), Tangle Teezer also comes in other forms: Aqua splash, Compact Styler, and the Salon Elite.

The Original is perfect for all hair types, as all the Tangle Teezer products are, and works on wet and dry hair. The design of the teeth is what makes the brush glide through tangles without pulling and pain. For anyone who feels like they’re loosing hair when you try and brush it out after the shower, this product us for you. It will minimize hair loss because of it’s unique design and comb structure.

The Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer is designed to be used in the shower and is ideal for distributing conditioner or leave-in treatments into the hair. Not only does it detangle wet hair in the shower, it will help you use less hair product and minimize build-up. It also works on every type of hair: the toughest curls, real and synthetic extensions, and weaves.

The Compact Styler Tangle Teezer is my favorite product. It’s small and fits into your bag –perfect for on the go. Called the “mini-me” of The Origninal Tangle Teezer, the Compact Styler has the same teeth configuration to detangle, leaving hair with a soft and polished look. The stylists also demonstrated how the compact styler could be used to tease hair effortlessly. Just as simply as it creates a tease, it also brushes the tease out with no pain or pulling.

Obsessed: Lily Collins

 

From her style to beauty, she’s been going for an edgier and more adult look  lately. I’m so obsessed with her, even beyond the fact that I’m a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments series. Lily is so amazing and she’s on the cover of the Seventeen magazine September issue.

Hazore Vol. 1 Launch Party

Two minutes from my apartment in Bushwick is the Body Actualized Center on Troutman St. For the first time a fashion event was actually close to me! This never happens. Downside to living in Bushwick. My friend Tamara and I went to the launch party for Hazore Vol. 1, a lifestyle clothing brand created by two best friends with art and design backgrounds. The collection features printed blouses, graphic tees, and dresses and skirts. Most of the pieces feature colorful geometric patterns, one of the stand out aspects of the brand. Notable pieces include: a babydoll dress with a grey tulle skirt and screen printed basic t-shirts with various celebrity and animal faces.

The launch party was brought to you by the ladies of Danika Daly PR. We even got a few goodies: a cool screen printed tote, Jamberry nail wraps, and graphic t-shirt. I think I really lucked out with mine, don’t you think?

Bauble Bar x PopSugar Event

Thursday night I had the opportunity to attend an event for BaubleBar x Popsugar at BaubleBar’s Soho pop-up shop. I walked in and they handed me a $10 off coupon. Winner. The store was incredible and filled with people snapping photos, sipping Godiva cocktails and admiring the jewelry. I actually have done a lot of research on BaubleBar because I recently wrote a piece on the company and their dive into brick and mortar (I’ll post it once it’s up). The company and their business model is really cool. They’re a part of the new wave of technology-inspired retail experiences. But again more about that in a different post. Back to the party: I found myself overwhelmed by the amount of merchandise the store had but I’m not surprised because the shop is supposed to carry everything that’s on the website. That’s a lot of baubles. After being indecisive for 45 minutes I decided on a bracelet and earrings. I think it was a good choice. Check out the shop if you’re in NYC!

The chevron earrings in the middle were a gift with purchase. They look a bit preppy for my style so I think I’ll give them to my sister for her birthday (Ali, if you’re reading this: happy early birthday).
