Sahag Makeover

Sahag Salon Workshop is known for their edgy haircuts and transformational colors. John Sahag was one of the pioneers in dry cutting in NYC and the precision it offers. While I never had the pleasure of meeting him, he was a legend, especially in the Armenian community, and known in the industry as the “mad professor of hair”. It’s been a while since I had a dry style cut and maybe it was that or the genius that is Karmela Lozina, but my cut was phenomenal. She took the dry ends and only took off what needed and somehow my hair looked longer than when I came in. And it felt better than it has in years, the airiness and overall luster. We also talked hair health and Nutrafol supplements (her recommendation, the mens version over the womens), plus using Revita Hair Growth Shampoo is everything you need to boost hair strength, and especially good for women with thinning hair. I’ve actually been taking Nutrafol but the women’s version for the past few months (you need 3+ months before seeing a difference), so that was was great motivation to keep going. She also said it had a high dose of turmeric so you never get sick, which now that she mentions it, I usually get weird colds when seasons change which hasn’t happened this year. Her other advice was to drink a lot of water and eat avocados — which is like 50% of my diet — and between all of that your hair becomes like Wonder Women’s lasso. So I’ll be reporting back on that in a few months! Although after this cut I was feeling really good about my hair’s health.

Endless Summer with Levi’s {Style Post}


For some of you this may have felt like an endless summer. For me, quite the opposite, I feel like I blinked and we’re already into the next season. But I’m not ready to give up my bright colors and summer mentality and two of the best transitional spring to fall wardrobe items I find are scarves and jeans!

My new beloved Levi’s Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ‘Endless Summer’ style will be a year round staple and here’s how I wear them to keep the summer spirit as we move onto fall. Matched against my Levi’s Denim Tee (don’t let the name deceive you, it’s a light blue, lightweight cotton top), I’ve added my bright red tie-dye scarf and belt for a pop of color, and my black perforated wedges to balance the look. And because I’m all about accessories I finished off the look with some silver arm candy and an ear cuff to add some glitz and glam to the outfit.


What I love about the Levi’s Mid Rise Skinny Jean is it’s so comfortable and moves with the curves of my body so I never have to hike them up –the belt I’m wearing is more for fashion then function.

While these are a newer pair of Levi’s to my wardrobe, I haven’t been without a pair since I was a teenager. Whether vintage or new, Levi’s are timeless and have been a staple in my wardrobe for the better part of two decades. In fact, I can’t think of any brand I’ve been wearing longer.

I remember my mom’s friend Tracie (who I thought was the coolest) would tell me stories on how her family moved to Italy when she was in High School and she would make a fortune buying all of her classmates Levi’s every time she came back to the States. All I wanted in life after hearing that was more Levi’s in my life!

Levi’s is such an iconic, heritage brand, epitomizing classic American style. Having launched in 1873 as Levi Strauss & Co., they were the ‘it’ jean of their time and for generations to come, being one of the most recognizable and imitated clothing brands in the world. And it’s that history that gives us that nostalgia and the endless memories of moments in our lives with Levi’s.

You’ve heard my story, now they want to hear yours! In August Levi’s launched the ‘Live in Levi’s Project’ on their website to showcase stories and authentic moments of those who live in Levi’s.

They’re looking for stories that share why you have an affinity for the brand – and the memories created while wearing them. Anything with the hashtag #LiveInLevis will be considered to be featured on the Levi’s site, so get sharing!

Style Mondays: Tracked out

Cut off short style Lara Pretty Connected styled by Tiffany Pinero

Athletic jackets inspired us on the runways and now are the must have item for summer nights. This neutral piece with yellow highlights by d.brand, adds a touch of cool to everything. Lucky you, d.brand is running a 20% off special (use code “db20” at checkout) — also check out their denim! Don’t be afraid to experiment with colored accents, and mixing styles (track jackets with heels, dress shirts with cut off shorts); just strike the right balance to keep it fresh and modern and not tragically out of place! Speaking of modern, don’t you think a leather cap adds a little extra something to a look too? Keep scrolling for some sporty summer style with an edge.

Levi’s Fall 2012 Global Collection Preview

One of highlights of last month was making it to Levi’s first ever global collection during New York Fashion Week. The event started with an art installation and then runway presentation where the brand showcased the key looks from its Fall/Winter 2012 collection.

Inspired by the ritual of getting dressed, the models did just that — dressed! While some models we’re busy putting on their clothes on stage, others we’re already dressed and walking down the cat walk. Mixing both men’s and women’s together, one model even added a bicycle to his morning routine and biked down the runway. Visually, one of the best produced and coolest shows I have been to; although with models coming out in all different directions was a little distracting in not knowing which direction to focus on.


Much like the aesthetic for the whole presentation, the pieces we’re very well styled and accessorized. The evolution of Levi’s beyond blue denim was apparent in their tailored jackets, pops of leather pieces, series of dresses and extended color range of men’s pants.  The shoes stole the show.

“Levi’s® has always been about embracing the energy and events of our time. Today, fashion is more democratic and accessible than ever, making New York Fashion Week the perfect moment in time for the Levi’s® brand to launch our first global collection,” said Len Peltier, Global Vice President of Creative Direction.

It was a solid collection based on a more refined and tailored look, for both men (which featured a tapered and slim leg) and women (a redefined bootcut skinny pant). The designs were inspired by the idea of craftsmanship, honesty and authenticity – honoring tradition while defying convention, redefining the norm and re-crafting and re-creating iconic Levi’s® styles. For men the key look was was a slouchy on the top and has a slim tailored leg.

The show concluded with a live banjo performance. They thought of everything.
