Single Sole Shoes

A dissection of the latest trend to hit the streets (literally!). The ladies over at Man Repeller are loving single sole platforms, or as they so cleverly coin – “SSP.” SerafinoSays feels just as strongly about these classic heels; they’re sophisticated and sassy all at the same time! Pair them with a pair of old boyfriend jeans and a blazer for a chic casual look.

Daily – “What Do Reese Witherspoon and Betty Boop Have In Common?”



What does this Hollywood actress in Water for Elephants and animated icon have in common? They both share a hairstyle conceived in the 1930’s.

A lady of distinction in the 1930’s, would never leave home without applying her ivory toned foundation, light pink rouge, favorite eyelid shade of blue, green or brown, curled false lashes, penciled eyebrows, raspberry tone lipstick and the fashionable hair style of the era, finger waved hair.

A faithful reader posed a question in the Just Sayin’ section asking:

“So many of my friends want that old style ‘Hollywood’ finger rolled hair style (a la’ Reese Witherspoon in Water for Elephants). What’s the easiest way to get that look?” – Caroline

The recent movie starring Reese Witherspoon was set in the 1930’s.  Just by examining photographs of elegant women wearing any one of the many finger wave styles, you would think it is a laborious, complicated chore to achieve such a mysterious hair style.  It could only be accomplished by going to a salon or just throwing on a pre-styled wig.  Surprisingly, the look is relatively easy to achieve.

I do not want to deceive you, so let me be clear on what I mean by “relatively easy.” To be as literal with the finger wave as Reese wore in Water for Elephants requires a setting lotion, hair clips, water bottle, a hooded dryer, time and experience.  But for the 2011 version, there is a much easier way to achieve a modernized version of the 1930’s hairstyle.

Daily – “Demi Moore Has Fine Hair Just Like Me”



A SerafinoSays readers not only had a great “Just Sayin’” question, but she inspired me to write a daily post for all of my fine haired friends.  Thank you Sherri and hope this helps.

Sherri’s question:

“Can you give some pointers or best options for thin, fine hair if you don’t want to go short… products, cuts, extensions?”

I hear from so many women I style “if only I had thicker hair”, “if only I could have more volume”, “if only I could create more bounce”.  My reply is always the same, “as a hair stylist, I might not be able to change the texture of your hair, but I can share all of my secrets to help you achieve the desired look you wish to wear.”

There are two ways to look at fine hair.  Some of my clients think it’s a curse while others look at is a blessing.  The clients that first come to me and view their hair as a curse have not been introduced to the right products, styling tools or basic education of fine hair to help them achieve voluminous hair.  While those that see it as a blessing, know how edgy and cool a great haircut and color can look on fine hair.

Here are a few of my SerafinoSays secrets when pumping up fine hair… [Read more...]
