We love Glee!

And of course their hair!  The new school year is starting soon or has already started for others in the Valley of the Sun.  Why not come in for a fresh haircut, style, color, or hair extensions.  Take a look of our fave Glee girls and their style.

Rachel Berry

Her style is a bit more on the preppy side.  Her long straight hair is simple, but her full bangs make her stand out in the crowd.  To style, spray a bit of Bb.Tonic and Bb.Styling lotion and blow dry with a flat brush.  Finish with the Bb.Shine.


                                                                                     Quinn Fabray

Once prim and proper is now the rebel of the group, but she's still gorgeous with her new sexy bob.  She cut about six inches!  To style, spray Bb.Thickening all over and blow dry with a flat brush.  Finish with some Bb.Brillantine for shine and separation.


Just because she wear spikes and chains and mostly black like her hair, Tina can still have some fun.  Here she shows her blues in extensions.  If you're afraid to do anything permanent, colored hair or feather extensions are the easiest fix to boring hair.  Not all extensions are permanently fused (glued) to the hair, they can be clipped in with a small comb or beads.

                                                                                          Mercedes Jones

A true diva, her hair is always perfect and shiny.  We love her even more with her bangs.  To keep hair healthy and shiny, once a week use Bb.Mending line.  To style, spray Bb.Tonic, rub some Bb.Straight and blow dry.  Finish with a 1 1/2 inch barrel curling iron, taking 1 inch sections and roll away from the face.

Top 6 Summer Skin Tips

As you prepare to show more skin, get ready to face the sun's rays with our top 6 summer skin tips!

1. Exfoliate for clearer, smoother skin

What it does: Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers.

When: Perform in the mornings prior to toner, moisturizer, SPF and make-up application. Tip: Make-up will last longer on an exfoliated skin!

Don’t forget: After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating body cream to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with an SPF (as recommended by the FDA).

Recommended Dermalogica Products: Daily Microfoliant®, Exfoliating Body Scrub, Body Hydrating Cream, MultiVitamin BodyBlock SPF20.

2. Keep skin hydrated

How: Up your regimen’s level of hydration with intensive masques, perfect for use one to two times a week. Boosters are a great fit, working best when layered underneath a moisturizer. Toners are a refreshing moisturizer prep, working to even out skin porosity. Tip: Refresh with a revitalizing toner spritz at your desk, in the car, at the gym, on the plane!

Recommended Dermalogica Products: Antioxidant HydraMist, Skin Hydrating Booster, Skin Hydrating Masque.

3. Make friends with H20

Why: Higher temperatures and more time outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells!

What you can do: Eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. Tip: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!

Recommended: Plain and pure water!

4. When in doubt, apply (and reapply!)

Why: It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen.: you must apply enough, and apply frequently. Studies indicate that most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should.

How much: A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass.

How often: Re-apply every two hours. Tip: Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.

Bonus: Today’s sophisticated formulas and technology let you select sun protection that works with your skin condition. That means you can choose oil-free, mattifying formulas, extra emollient formulas for dry skin, or chemical free formulas for sensitized, reactive skin.

Recommended Dermalogica Products: Oil Free Matte Block SPF20, Extra Rich FaceBlock SPF30, Super Sensitive FaceBlock SPF30.

5. Soothe over-exposed skin

What: You forgot the sunscreen, didn’t apply enough, or got caught in a sunny spell.

What’s next: Unfortunately, the damage is done, but you don’t have to suffer in pain! Super-soothing botanicals and cooling gels can help prevent peeling and reduce redness and inflammation.

How: Apply cooling balms generously over-exposed skin, preferably at the first sight of a pink glow.

Prevent: One blistering sunburn doubles your risk of melanoma -- remember to get a yearly skin exam by a doctor and perform a self-examination once a month to detect early warning signs of carcinomas and malignant melanoma. Look for a new growth or any skin change.

Recommended Dermalogica Products: After Sun Repair

6. Repair and treat sun damage

What causes skin damage: UV light causes photoaging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin and wrinkles, whether you have burned your skin or not. When sunlight comes in contact with skin a cascade of damage results (including the stripping of barrier lipids) causing inflammation, production of reactive oxygen molecules that affect healthy cell growth, and stimulation of collagen destructing enzymes.

What to do: A tan may be a popular summer look, but it indicates damage. Bombard your skin with age-fighting ingredients to help undo any damage that may occur, and to further protect it from the aging affects of UV.

Recommendation Dermalogica Products: Power Rich™, MultiVitamin Power Recovery® Masque, MAP-15 Regenerator.
