VIDEO: UPGRADE YOUR BRAID FOR 2013
After having a week to ease into the new year, it is time to implement those resolutions we made back in December. I am a habitual flat ironer, which leads to split ends and a dried out mane; so 2013 is about updating my hair and not killing it. For guidance I brought my conundrum to the Australian born hair guru living in Paris, David Mallett. Within moments his eyes lit up and he said “plaits!” After a few minor tweaks David updated the standard boring braid into a romantic Parisian updo (easy to replicate at home in minutes). Watch and learn!

“I grew up in Australia and I lived in England for a long time, as well as Italy and in France -- I traveled a lot so it was a real conglomerate education for me, aesthetically, through the years. The salon is a little mix of all the things I’ve seen. A lot of things that come into the shop are pieces that I have collected over the last twenty years via traveling and antiquing. All the animals came from parks and zoos. None of them were killed -- we have certificates for them all, so I can actually travel with them. She is first one we bought (points to the panther), Sybil.

JESSICA HAUSMAN, MARIE CLAIRE, FRANCE
While in Paris, I caught up with my dear friend, the charming film buff and cat enthusiast Jessica from Marie Claire, France. Jess writes about fashion and culture for the Paris based glossy and contributes to other publications when she has the time. We spent an afternoon chatting about how she got her start as a fashion writer and her favorite beauty finds.
