December 6, 2011

Meet Stephanie. She has experimented with many different lengths, as you can see here. From Stephanie’s email: When I’m just going for a straight style with the ends slightly curled under, this only really works when it’s short.  When it falls to my shoulders/clavicle, those curled under ends are flipped up in minutes.  This is […]

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

November 14, 2011
