Ponytail / World's First Hair Style


The statuesque Greek Goddess with her high flying Ponytail and sophisticated Chignon reminds us of the staying power of this simple classic hairstyle. The reason for its longevity is that the vast majority of women (75%) prefer wearing long hair and this simple up-do is suitable for any age, face shape and hair texture. You might say it’s the “work horse” of all hairstyles thus it has been appropriately named “The Ponytail”.

Famous Hairlines / Hair Restoration

Some Hairlines Are Headlines

Celebrity hairlines has become a hot topic in the tabloid's in recent years. When Sir Elton John had his hairline restored the tabloids read; “Tonsorial Wizard Grows Hair on Rock Man”. Elton is perhaps the most famous hair restoration / transplant recipients. He underwent a series of replacement procedures after becoming fed-up with years of wearing toupees and wigs. 

Hollywood heartthrob Mel Gibson had his thinning and receding hairline restored. Today he is the proud owner of a full head of hair. While Mel has not publicly admitted to having had a hair transplant, he is not the first celebrity to undergo this hush-hush procedure. Kevin Costner known for his movie star good looks has always had a thin head of hair. Not liking the way his thinning crown looked on film and spending thousands of dollars having it “digitally added” in the editing room Kevin is said to have been consider the real deal with a hair restoration procedure. 

Jokes about hair loss are as old as dirt, but not as old as rocks. Two famous comedians, Tom Arnold and Dennis Miller are the first to tell you they’ve had it done and that it was a “hair razing experience”. Both look much younger with thicker hair and lower hairline.
Known for their handsome boyish good looks both Mathew McConaughue and Jude Law showed early signs of hair loss. Both have spent thousands of dollars on hair loss treatments to slow the process. Mathew  finally settle for the real deal “a hair replacement procedure” and it looks totally natural even up close.
Hair Restoration is not just reserved for film and television stars. Politicians, fashion designers, musicians even top business executives now recognize the importance of hair to their image. Move Stars John Travolta and John Cleese filled in there fading hairline for a youthful looking hair style and you can also. Recent medical breakthroughs and lower costs has made what was once an expensive procedure affordable for anyone. 

Having had this procedure myself and can tell you first hand it was painless and well worth the expense. Hair restoration is a simple out patent procedure that involves hair follicles being taken from the back and side of the head, where hair is naturally thickest and resistant to loss, and inserted seamlessly into the thinning spots for a totally natural look even up close.  
With today’s modern technology, it's now possible to do something about it male hair loss. Hopefully, this information will help you to make a decision or at least gives you a starting point for your personal search. My procedure was done here in Hollywood by world's foremost hair restoration specialist, Dr. Michael Elliott. For more information see

Tax Deductable HairCut



With the high cost of salon  and barber styling visits today the vast majority of American's can’t afford to have their hair styled on a regular basis. I have the solution, how about a tax deductible hair cut? It would jump-start the economy, stimulate the beauty industry and improve America's face value.

A $250 per year (tax deduction) for grooming would go a long way to cover the cost for this healthy personal care service the professional beauty industries provide. It’s much more than a hairdo or an accessory to fashion. As the saying goes, when you look good, you feel good, it’s the essence of what we professional's provide.


Research has shown that only a small percentage of the population can afford to visit a salon. As a result the vast majority of people have never experienced what a salon visit can do to build confidence and improve their appearance both physically and emotionally. .Think of what this would do to stimulate the economy and help every American afford to look their best.

Many of you reading this thought provoking beauty blog may get a "few giggles" out of it, but people in the public eye and entertainment industry have been deducting personal care services for years, legally. And many corporations require their employee's to look well groomed at their own expense and hair styling is an expensive part of that.

We've been getting clipped for years, isn’t it time for a trim?
How about a tax deductible haircut !!!

Star Hair Style / Donald Trump


Drawing inspiration from the hair style trends of our favorite stars and celebrities has become a national past time. One such celebrity hair style is that of International property developer, television star and possibly the next president of the United States Donald Trump. His trade mark hair style and techno-color hair” is a tonsorial master piece and work of art. Some say it's the "Cats Meow".

TO GET THE LOOK: Are you watching your hairline fade and feel that there’s nothing you can do about it, short of a hair transplant? Before you give up, take a styling lesson from Donald Trump and put your base ball cap away and "make your hair look great again". To get the look, let’s take it one step at a time; starting with a style cut and shaping.

LET’S SHAPE IT: To cover this much "landscape" will require a NY building permit and full set of architectural hair styling plans. To get the look, start with a long layered silhouette and low slung side part combed over the crown to put the blank spot stylishly under cover. The sides and front are long and tapered with a few “love locks” to cover the hairline. With a few adjustments (tweaks) as it grows you can easily find the ideal length and shape for your style.

LET’S STYLE IT: To get all 500 hairs flying in formation start with a dab of shaping gel or gel mousse to thicken and add style support. Just run either through damp hair and give it a quick blast with a blow dryer for a full look. After part and swoop the hair across the top, flipped the front back and push it forward to cover the receding hairline. To hold this tonsorial master piece in place finish finish with a shot of extra hold special FX hairspray and you’re ready for your close up.

NOW, LET’S COLOR IT: Now that you have your fading hair cline cover a light golden brown tint will wash the gray away and give the thinning hair a over-all thicker look. To prevent the color from fading prematurely a light golden brown color enhancing shampoo is used weekly. To keep it up the new growth is re-colored once a month. This will cost a few extra bucks but is well worth time and expense for youthful look.

Now that you have your fading hairline covered with a few “sweeping love locks” you can put your base ball cap away. The low side part combed over the crown puts the blank spots stylishly under cover. The full look and neckline stylishly over the collar gives you Donald's sporty look. Trading in your graying hair for a light natural golden brown hue defines the shape and washed the gray away for a youthful look. Heads will turn and your pals will wonder “What’s Up Dude” when they see all the babe's making a fuss over you and your great looking Donald Trump hair style.

Magic Botanical Oil / Hair and Skin Serum


Magic Oil from Mother Natures Rare Earth Garden
Botanical Oils are naturally gentler than common anti-aging products because they deliver natures active ingredients deep into the skin without irritating the surface. One of the first to see the potential in this category of botanical beauty aids was Dr. Donna La Treill , (Clinical Researcher, Author, and Visionary). She found that some rare botanical oils when applied topically can create a smooth soft dewy youthful glow to skin and instantly restore moisture, elasticity and flexibility to dry damaged hair that lasts all day without a greasy residue.

Dr. La Treill’s extensive research studies lead her to discover the rare botanical oil extracted from the Korean Camellia Japonica flower seeds that have a long history of cosmetic usage traditionally in the oriental region as a beauty aid for the health of skin and hair, but has received relatively little attention for its biological activity thus far. A recent study suggested that Camellia Botanical Oil also has anti-inflammatory actives that common oils on the market don't have.

The Camellia Japonica also called the Korean Fire Flower is found no where else in the world growing a top forty foot tree’s in the monumental gardens of South Korea. The fruit of the Camellia Japonica tree consists of a globe-shaped capsule with three compartments, each with one or two large brown seeds. Fruiting occurs only in September to October.
From this rare Korean botanical flower hand selected Camellia seeds are taken through a 9x extracting process to produce the pure Camellia Botanical Oil Serum. Absolutely undiluted with no fillers it produces 86% fatty acids like the skin itself with its own Vitamin E content which preserves it naturally up to a year after bottling. The result, a 100% pure organic Camellia Botanical Oil Serum that works like magic with endless benefits for hair and entire body (hands, face and skin)
