The other day I watched Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, a cheeky, cult movie about a girl band written by—wait for it—Roger Ebert. The story is silly and the cast earned master degrees in schmacting. But it’s a classic for a reason—the costumes are amazing, the makeup is pure perfection and the hair is beyond refreshing. After years of stringy and over-dyed, limp extensions, it was actually inspirational to see overdone bouffants with some serious lift at the roots. It seems like I’m not alone. Madonna’s hair has been getting higher and higher lately as has Janet's and my fave Spanish actress Penelope (see the video below) always rocks enviably high, sexy hair.
So starting now I’m going to reach for the sky. First though I’m going to need to get my product arsenal ready. I’ve already got the Frédéric Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Shine Mist for all day brilliance and my boar-brush will help me get some lift. So all I need is a mega-hold spray or mousse. Word on the street is that the Neil George Volumizing Spray is a good bet. I’m also partial to the L’Oreal mousses, but wondering if you guys have any other recommendations.
