InStyle Excerpt: How to Get Aishwarya's Waves

I was browsing around (while I should have been studying really) when I came across this scan of Aishwarya in InStyle magazine.

I haven't tried to do this myself, but hey it should prove interesting.

I just realized the picture's too small to actually read what was written, so here's what it says.

How to Style it:

  1. Create a deep side part and comb a thickening spray (like Bumble and Bumble's) through damp hair to provide curl-retaining texture.
  2. Rub a dollop of leave-in conditioner (such as Neutrogena's Silk Touch) over ends.
  3. After blow-drying hair smooth, curl one-and-a-half inch sections with a medium barrel curling iron (one option: Jilbere de Paris Ceramic Tools Nano Tech), wrapping each section downward toward the neck. When the curls cool, brush out to create a solid wave, then mist with medium hold hairspray (try Sebastian Shaper)

I just stumbled upon your website and I think it's great! I'm looking for a makeup how-to book for my friend who is Indian. Most makeup books out there are for white girls (believe me I've searched) and I wanted to know if you knew of any makeup books for women of color.

thanks so much for reading my blog :D. Trust me, i've tried looking high and low for make-up books directed towards indian women. the only one i can really think of right now is iman's colour of beauty that deals fairy well with darker skin tones. what you could try telling your friend (and this is what I usually do) is to try the make-up in other books but just to gear it to yourself. I used to look at how a certain look was achieved, try it out myself, then try them with colours i thought that suited me, and then slowly start tailoring it to yourself. for some reason, south asian celebs never dish their make-up secrets. or they try to keep it to themselves mostly. hope this helps. feel free to contact me if you want to ask more questions (anytime :))

Hey Anu,
I did get your response! It was very sweet of you:) Thanks!
I just moved to NY, and I've been bad with email because of unpacking
Hey anyway- theres a book by Gisele Scanlon, called 'The Goddess Guide'. I've been thinking of you when I read it! It has websites and info on places you can get almost anything. She mostly talks of Home scents, linen, makeup, skin care- gosh anything under the sun for women, and there are great resources..for eg- theres a website in this world, where you pay a minimum monthly fee, and you get to try out designer handbags, and send it back when you're bored of it!!!!!fricking awesome!

Your blog is simply excellent. I hope you know your hard work is not going unnoticed. Your beauty blog is the most valuable gem I've come across in a long time. Can I link you when I update my site?

Hey Chic mommy!
It would be so amazingly nice o you to mention my blog :).
I had a list of a lot of blogs i visit, but since i change my layout all the time, the information always gets lost. So i figured once i finish tweaking my layout to what i want it to be i'd link it to everyone else's blog. I only wish this whole tweaking would finally get finished. THanks once again, you're so incredibly sweet.
