Want Healthy, Tangle-Free Hair like Sexy Salma Hayek? Then Use This!

Let's be honest.

Actress Salma Hayek smolders on the big screen. She's a petite beauty with enormous sex appeal. And part of that allure comes from her raven, beautiful hair.

Whether she wears her healthy mane in a bob, up-do, bangs or long, silky blow-out, you cannot help but NOTICE Salma's hair.

And there is one, cheap, little styling aid that has made a huge difference in her life.

Maybe you already own one---the Tangle Teezer. We do not have one, but are going to pick one up soon.

Less than $10, $9.99 to be exact, available at ULTA stores.

What's the big deal, you ask?

Well, instead of ripping out or snapping off your strands, as many of us do by mistake, this adorable, little tool kindly separates strands without harming or pulling.

And Salma could NOT live with out her Tangle Teezer. Look what she recently told InStyle mag:

"Oh my God, this brush changed my life, My daughter adores it, and it even works on my curly hair. I don't know who invented it, but thank you."

That's a winning endorsement, indeed!

Can You Rock This Look For Spring 2014? Sleek Brushed Back Hair

This is NOT a hairstyle that looks great on EVERY gal. It's simple to create, but rockin' it right is another thing.

Wearing your hair brushed back away from the forehead + over the crown is a polished, regal-looking do. And if you wet the locks also like we've been seeing on the Gucci + Dior runways......It looks both edgy + modern.

There are celebrities who CAN rock this hairstyle. Kim Kardashian has been hitting the red carpet with this style long before many others. And with the reality TV star's amazing bone structure, she looks gorgeous:

And we spotted more glamorous ladies going for the brush-back! Emma Watson + Emmy Rossum hit the red carpet looking tres chic.

Just slick on a good gel at the crown and you're good to go!!

We like the Pantene VOLUME ROOT LIFTING SPRAY GEL ($5.99)

New Topical Gel For Rosacea Sufferers: Mirvaso Removes The Red!

We LOVE when beauty science keeps advancing. And today, we are talking to the 16 million Americans who have this annoying but common skin condition known as Rosacea.

There is HELP on the way with a new FDA-approved topical gel called Mirvaso.

As the Mirvaso website states....:From RED to READY in about 30 minutes! And the topical treatment lasts up to 12 hours.

Mirvaso reports the toning down of redness by 2 grades. That's pretty amazing for those of you constantly bothered by persistent redness, especially during the cruel winter season.

This is a prescription formula, so a visit to the dermatologist is the way to proceed. We can tell you, however, that you MUST be 18 years or older to qualify for treatment with Mirvaso, otherwise known as Brimonidine.

The topical gel is applied in a pea-sized amount, once daily to each of the 5 regions of the face: forehead, chin, nose + each cheek.

How does Mirvaso deliver?

It works by constricting otherwise dilated blood vessels, thereby cutting down on the appearance of redness.

There are famous faces with Rosacea including the late Princess Diana, Cameron Diaz, Mariah Carey + Rene Zellweger.

 Check out the Mirvaso website for the impressive results of RED to READY!

Jennifer Lopez' Can't Do Without This Hydrating Skin Care Cream

The ultimate fly girl herself, Jennifer Lopez, says it's all about finding balance in life. And at age 44 and the mom of 2 active twins on top of her busy superstar status, it's a wonder how JLo gets it all done.

The Latina beauty graces the cover of April's InStyle magazine. Inside, she talks a lot about her career, her old neighborhood(the Bronx), being in her 40's, and how she maintains that enviable, youthful complexion.

We were curious to learn that her day cream involves a product from the Dr. Hauschka line. JLo appears to have a dry complexion:

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care Rose Day Cream ($42.95, 1 oz., at The rose day cream is a rich, creamy formula that works as an excellent hydrating agent.

And yes, the scent is a lovely rose.

Here's what the skin care product can do for you:

Celebrating Eva Longoria Turning 39: Nothing Desperate Here!

On March 15th, Eva Longoria will turn 39. And we don't have to tell you, this woman looks gorgeous. Plus, she's smart, too. Just earned her master's degree last May.

We've been watching her new bangs for about 3 weeks now....And we LOVE them. We got rid of our bangs a few months ago, and now we are missing them.

BANGS can let you look younger, and the beauty proof is in the photo !

We also like Eva's Kim Kardashian school of makeup. Some fans do not, because we often read comments that Eva needlessly plasters on the makeup + too faux lashes.

Well, we think Eva wears it all so well! We adore the smokyeye fringe+liner and the nude lip combo that is Kim Kardashian's signature look.

Eva is also being celebrated by Maxim magazine. They've recognized the Latina beauty as their Woman of the Year (2014).

Nude is NOT an easy color to wear. You can appear  "washed out."We still cannot find the right shade that looks perfect on us.

But the beauty about wearing nude lipstick is its low-maintenance. You don't have to re-apply the color EVERY time you drink or eat something that wipes away a bolder lip shade. Your lips have a more natural appearance with a nice nude.

We're going to try this nude lipstick, if you will:

Rimmel London Lasting Finishing Lipstick in BIRTHDAY SUIT. Only $2.59!!
