Iman, world-famous model and founder of a successful cosmetics brand, is aware of the difficulties women of colour have always had with skin care and make-up. In this book, she teaches readers how to work with skincare regimens and palettes targeted to their exact skin tone and type.
The Curly Girl manifesto is back, now completely revised, updated, and expanded by more than a third with all-new material. Created by curly hair evangelist Lorraine Massey the go-to curl expert featured in "Allure," "InStyle," "Lucky," "Seventeen," and "The New York Times"; owner of the Devachan salons in New York; and creator of a multimillion-dollar line of all-natural Devachan products "Curly Girl" is the surprising bible for the 65 percent of women with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it.
"Curly Girl" is packed with unique and fail-proof hair-care methods, inspiration, and an empowering pro-curl attitude. It s all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraine s no-more-shampoo epiphany "handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater"; homemade lotions and potions. New to this edition: an illustrated, step-by-step guide to trimming your own hair (Remember: It s not what you take off; it s what you leave on.); a section on the "particular" needs of wavy hair; Lorraine s Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous dos for weddings and other special occasions; a chapter on multi"curl"tural hair written by an African American specialist at Devachan. Plus, updated information on green and chemical-free products, 20 new Q&A s, and a DVD with tutorials on caring for four different types of curls. From now on, there s no such thing as a bad hair day."
Ask a woman about her hair, and she just might tell you the story of her life. Ask a whole bunch of women about their hair, and you could get a history of the world. Surprising, insightful, frequently funny, and always forthright, the essays in Me, My Hair, and I are reflections and revelations about every aspect of women's lives from family, race, religion, and motherhood to culture, health, politics, and sexuality.
They take place in African American kitchens, at Hindu Bengali weddings, and inside Hasidic Jewish homes. The conversation is intimate and global at once. Layered into these reminiscences are tributes to influences throughout history: Jackie Kennedy, Lena Horne, Farrah Fawcett, the Grateful Dead, and Botticelli's Venus.
The long and the short of it is that our hair is our glory--and our nemesis, our history, our self-esteem, our joy, our mortality. Every woman knows that many things in life matter more than hair, but few bring as much pleasure as a really great hairdo.
"A terrific read for those of us who obsess about our hair. Or those who live with those of us who do. A collection that's, I dare say, a cut above the rest." --Mary Morris, author of The Jazz Palace

Turin, a renowned scientist, and Sanchez, a longtime perfume critic, have spent years sniffing the world s most elegant and beautiful as well as some truly terrible perfumes.

Through witty, irreverent, and illuminating prose, the reviews in "Perfumes" not only provide consumers with an essential guide to shopping for fragrance, but also make for a unique reading experience.
"Perfumes" features introductions to women s and men s fragrances and an informative frequently asked questions section including:
What is the difference between eau de toilette and perfume?
How long can I keep perfume before it goes bad?
What s better: splash bottles or spray atomizers?
What are perfumes made of?
Should I change my fragrance each season?
"Perfumes: The Guide" is an authoritative, one-of-a-kind book that will do for fragrance what Robert Parker s books have done for wine.
