How we use beauty products and services is so psychologically driven. Women are always looking for that magic bullet for whatever perceived imperfection they’re trying to “fix.” And there’s definitely an often unspoken assumption that if something is expensive, then it’s better or more efficacious. When news broke last Friday that Mila Kunis received a $7,000 facial before her Friends With Benefits press junket, we wondered, “Is it really better than the $150 version?” She probably thinks it is, therefore--for her, it is. She got her money’s worth. In honor of Mila and her ridiculously expensive facial, we decided to dig up some of the most ridiculously expensive beauty treatments we could find. From hair extensions to the blingiest nail art you can possibly imagine, click through and feel better about that $100 face cream you just bought.
There is so much beauty news lately, we can barely keep up. Hair is in the spotlight today for some reason.
As if it’s not enough that I am constantly scanning my face for those little signs of wear and tear, now the beauty industry is telling me that my hair is making me look old. Anti-aging hair care products have flooded the market in the last few years. A few weeks ago WWD reported that Ken Paves (BFF of Jessica Simpson and QVC regular), Redken, and Zoto were all entering this market. Frederic Fekkai, L’Oreal, and Dove, already have products in this category. The prices range from $6 for drugstore options to $95 for fancier potions. Signs of aging hair include the obvious--graying--as well as dryness, thinning, and dullness. Graying can start in your 20s (!!) although with the recent trend of young ingenues going gray, perhaps this is no longer a stigma. The other symptoms can start anytime, depending on your diet, health, and how frequently you torture your locks with heat treatments. Every hair on your head is a strand of protein. Each strand falls out every four to five years and is replaced. These strands get smaller and more mousy looking the older you get. The basic premise for most anti-aging hair products is that they give your hair moisture without compromising volume. (Usually volumizing products can cause dryness and moisturizing products can be heavy and cause limpness.) After a quick scan of some of the anti-aging offerings, I’ve discovered that companies really like to use trademarked pseudo-scientific sounding ingredients like “Intra-Cylane” or very posh “natural” additives (caviar, truffle oil). I spoke to Misty Miller, a hairdresser with 20 years of experience in the industry, and NYC dermatologist Dr. Elizabeth Hale to get their take on these products.
