This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Get Blake Lively’s Hair

February, 25, 2014

When I met Serge Normant – the hair god who styles celebrities like Blake Lively, Julia Roberts and Sarah Jessica Parker – I had to know how he always makes them look like they just shot a shampoo commercial. He took me through the four magical steps.


Pre-Shower Prep. Styling your hair begins before you enter the shower. The elixir that gives hair super-shine and softness is Serge’s Meta Morphosis Hair Repair Treatment. Once a week, apply this to dry hair 30 minutes before shampooing.

Bring on the Volume. Towel-dry your hair and spray in some Meta Lush Volumizer, holding the bottle about 10 inches from your head. Then either blow or air-dry your hair. Next round brush medium-sized chunks.


Curl Craze. Magazines are bombarded with ladies sporting bodacious curls that appear effortless. To get this natural look – versus uniform barrel curls – use a curling iron on every other strand of hair.


Spritz and Go. Spritz in some Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing Spray for shine, and hold the look with Meta Luxe Hair Spray.


Now you’re ready to dazzle your way through the day!
