The other day I re-discovered one precious piece of jewelery: a hand-carved coral and gold ring from Italy my grandmother passed down to me. The ring inspired me to pull together a retro look as a nod to her timeless style. It’s baffling how beautiful everyone was in the ’30s and ’40s.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

I got the best haircut of my life recently at Marie Robinson Salon, and my stylist polished my look with Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray. I loved it, bought it, and have been shamelessly hooked since.

To strengthen my new obsession, hair-expert Greg Bitterman had a table packed exclusively with Oribe products at a photo shoot yesterday (behind-the-scenes photos coming soon!). I had the chance to sample quite a few, but the texturizer remains at the top of my list.

This light-weight spray acts as a volumizer and gives my pin-straight hair movement and life for hours.  Flip your head upside down, spray from root to tip, and don’t be stingy. The more you use the better your tresses will look-exactly the opposite effect I’ve experienced with similar products in the past.
