My hair has never really felt better. I went a few shades darker with my color. I had an amazing cut…my bangs feel a lot more light, framing my face. The ends of my strands feel super smooth. But it definitely took time for me to achieve extra healthy, strong hair. After my Nexxus salon experience, I decided it was time to dedicate a little bit more time each day to treating my hair. I began the #Lockin24 challenge with theNexxus Therappe shampoo and Nexxus Humectress conditioner. For a little extra power, I have been using the Nexxus Encapsulate serumon the ends of my damp strands right after I shower, or first thing in the morning. The results are magical. Here is my hair, with 24 hours of moisture protection.
The brand new Nexxus salon here in Tribeca, New York City is absolutely stunning. I’m so excited to give you the inside scoop on my salon experience, and darker, more mysterious hair! Nexxus is known for their Nature Science Salon products. Nexxus completely understands hair fiber and how it reacts to natural proteins. It wasn’t until my prep for the Tribeca Film Festival that I got my first incredible Nexxus protein treatment and I became hooked. Nexxus has been able to combine powerful ingredients from nature, it’s science to unlock it’s power, and heritage in the salon to make a statement with every single product. It’s amazing that their home base salon, once a place for private appointments and celebrity clientele, is now open to the public for bookings and appointments. Take a peek inside this stunning space.
Every beauty brand I love is mastering my favorite product: a killer eye palette. They are a lot more like works of art! I’m not talking about creating your average smoky eye, but a play on pastels, bold hues, and of course, some summer bronze. Here I’m wearing the By Terry shadow stick in “Acqua Mint.” Isn’t it just lush? Unexpected, yet so romantic.
As you know, I love creating, editing, and filming my own videos. It’s my new form of story-telling. Maybe it’s because I love movement. Like seeing the wind blowing the hair across someone’s face… hearing a new little tune…reconnecting to a moment. I love to see what’s really goes on behind that photo. My brand new YOUTUBE displays all the moods I create with every place I travel, with every project I’m working on, and with every wild #SUAREZSISTERS adventure. It’s time to take a second and subscribe to my tube…YOUTUBE.
living room sessions. What song do you want to hear me sing next?
I love to combine my Chinese and Hispanic upbringing. It’s unique,and somehow it gets incorporated in so many things that I do. I love representing that unconventional woman, that takes inspiration from all over the world. I got full creative control in my whole Don Julio 70 campaign. Take a peek:
