The chop is happening today at 1:30p at Regis salon, which I admittedly used to put on par with the Lemon Tree for two undesirable qualities: it's a chain, it's located in a mall. But after doing some research and reading about Regis on Style.com this week, I've decided the salon is a safe and money-saving bet. Reportedly, their $18 "Ultimate Repair Treatment" will pump up your locks with vitamins, shine and moisture in only 15 minutes. And a typical haircut is a super steal at only $50.
Other eye-opening news on the beauty front: an eye drop that was originally intended for Glaucoma patients has a most curious side effect: growing luscious eye lashes! The drug, called Latisse, will be available with prescription in about 6-8 weeks and costs about $120 a month for a small bottle.
Oh goody! Does this mean that celebrities will finally stop pasting grotesque falsies to their lids? Will this revolution in cosmetic vanity see an end to the fringy, feathery and spidery stick-ons?
This brown-eyed girl has another secret to long lashes....being Italian. Thick hair just seems to grow without drops, potions or pills. Needless to say, I will not be coughing up the monthly Latisse fee. I've got travel plans to save up for!
