Girls, you might want to save Ruby Woo for girls night instead of date night according to an impromptu survey done by the Huffington Post. When it comes to the beauty and fashion trends us girls love, guys revealed which of those they hate. What topped the beauty list?:

  • Bright lipstick
  • Heavy eye makeup
  • Fake nails
  • Hair bows

When I asked my own husband he said, “that bun” (top knot) and the “orange lipstick” (not my NARS Red Square!!)For the full list of trends guys hate on girls, check out the Huffington Post

Keep It Simple when it comes to your hair products

Less is definitely more when it comes to applying hair products. For bouncy shiny hair with lots of movement,I live by only these three products:

Pureology Super Smooth Shampoo and Condition- I was recommended Pureology when I got my first Keratin treatment because it was sulfate free and helped extend the life of the Keratin. I’ve always gone back to it since then. I highly recommend using any sulfate free shampoo, as sulfates dry out and strip the hair of moisture. Some prefer “Poo” (i.e. lather), while some opt for no poo (a conditioning cleanse like Wen). Pureology lathers up clean, but leaves the hair soft and managable. Retails for appx. $27

Kerastase Serum Oleo-Relax- A powerful oil that helps tame frizz, add glossy shine, but is so lightweight, you can’t even tell you have anything in your hair. And it’s super concentrated so only 2 pumps are necessary each use. Retails for appx. $36
