Beyonce Lace Wig
On the hair envy front, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Jessica Simpson, Taylor Swift, Ciara, Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton and Tyra Banks could all be categorized into a box I would happily label, “Give me your damn hair“.

Makes it quite shocking to know that their hair isn’t real, doesn’t it? No, I’m not talking about extensions (which are all so common now I have spotted tracks on 12-year-olds), but lace wigs.

A lace wig is one of the most natural looking ‘hair systems’ on the market. This isn’t your 10-dollar party wig (the kind designed to last 5 minutes…tops). Basically, a lace wig is made by using a fine lace material as the base/scalp, then tying individual human hairs onto the lace. The term ‘full lace’ denotes that the base cap is made fully of lace, while ‘lace front’ wigs have lace in front and different materials at the back of the cap. Once custom-made, the wig is then attached with a special glue (strong, but harmless), pins, clips, or special tape. No damage!

The reason celebrities wear them? The easygoing luxury of it all! Not only can you get top-quality hair the second you wake up, but you can change colour, length and texture without any damage to your own strands! The versatility is astounding. Also, with your “cheap wigs” you often get shedding and no ability to tie your hair up or expose the nape of your neck without seeing the wig. Lace technology makes it look no different to a normal hairline. Undetectable.

I found out about lace wigs through my close friend’s Mom, who recently launched a lace wig store. The amazing thing is, I have adored both my friend and her mother’s hair for some time and have never doubted that so much as an extension had gone into their hair! They are just the sort of beautiful, polished women who seem as though they’ve just stepped off of a movie set every day. I suggest you take a look at their new website for inspiration and more of an insight into the world of celebrity-perfect hair! Be ahead of the trend.

Blake Lively
What a luckless Lively. Even though Blake has been Anna Wintour‘s cover model for three issues this year – including Vogue’s Best Dressed supplement – she is truly not bringing in the dineros. Audit Bureau of Circulations has confirmed that Blake Lively‘s June Vogue cover was the third worst-selling issue of the year and her Esquire cover was the worst-seller of the year. ABC says Taylor Swift wasn’t doing much better, with newsstand sales for her April Elle cover running 60,000 less than average, her November Glamour cover being their second-worst selling issue of the year, and July’s Marie Claire as the magazine’s third worst-selling issue.

Who is magazine gold? Lady Gaga. (Vogue has apparently taken note, as she will be their March cover girl).

Leighton Meester County Strong Premiere
Leighton Meester didn’t look like she felt the winter weather so many of us are suffering while red-carpetting at the LA premiere for her new film “Country Strong“. The Gossip Girl got frocktastic in a Christian Dior floral minidress which she paired with a fuschia and orange Pierre Hardy ankle-strap wedges. The expected glamour was injected with a dash of gold Cathy Waterman accessories.

Additionally, we can share some Waldorf woohoos as a little birdy has informed me she has been asked to be the new face of Missoni. She can add this accomplishment to her campaign for Vera Wang‘s new fragrance that will also be released next year. It’s comforting to see such a promising young star has the potential to leave such a cult character as Blair Waldorf and stay on top of the industry (yes, it has been confirmed she is leaving in two years).

Final notes? Leighton Meester > Taylor Swift. See Meester’s video for “Summer Girl” below. View Post
