Heya, ladies. How was your day? What was the highlight of your Friday?
I’ve been sort of out of it today… I spent way too much time in Photoshop trying to design those pink and green thumbs for the MAC Naked Honey Review Roundup post this afternoon.
Time flies when you’re having fun with Photoshop.
Now I’m just browsing the web, looking for hair tips to create voluminous, *va-va-va-voom!* Victoria’s Secret hair.
Ever since my last haircut, I’ve been wanting to utilize these long layers for something dramatic.
Unfortch, there’s a fine line between good-looking big ass hair and hot mess hair.
Luckily for those of us obsessed with big hair, there’s Redken’s Layer Lift Spray Gel ($15), a non-aerosol, volumizing spray with a summery, lemon scent that fades in minutes.
Layer Lift adds body while providing hold, enhancing shine and packing frizz-fighting power.
To use it I spray enough on wet hair to lightly coat the top layers and ends.
The product doesn’t feel goopy or sticky like most tube gels, and that’s nice. Perhaps because of it, the pump doesn’t clog, so it’s always ready to apply in a jiffy.
Once dry, my hair rocks mad volume all the way from mid-shaft to the ends, and because Layer Lift also helps to keep frizz under control, my mane avoids looking like a hot mess.
The stuff would be my new hair stylin’ crush if it weren’t for the price…
The 5.7-oz bottle seems small for $15, and I’m going through it quickly. After only two weeks, I’ve used about a third, but I bet that has something to do with the length of my hair. If you have shorter and/or thinner hair, you may be able to use less.

Here comes the weekend!
Woot, woot, we made it to the weekend! Do you have any plans?
Tomorrow is Nordstrom’s Cosmetics Summer Trend Show in SF. I’ll be there with my trusty camera and notebook, of course, trying to figure out what’s what.
Enjoy the rest of your Friday night. Tabs says “Mmmrow!”
