Long Luscious Locks

Long boho beachy hair styles are making a come back this summertime. If you’ve chopped your locks off recently, don’t fret – that’s what extensions were made for! The newest technique in applying extensions involve tape! This technique is less damaging than other outdated methods and is semi-permanent. Zala Premium Hair Extensions are offered in 20 piece packs of Remy, natural human hair in lengths 14″- 26″ These extensions can be taken to your local stylist and applied professionally. Tape in extensions last 3-6months (depending on hair growth) before they must be removed and reapplied. In comparison to clip in extensions, tape ins don’t have to be applied everyday. There is also no discomfort while wearing tape ins because the tape lays flat against the hair, where as clip ins can cause some irritation during long hours of wear. Search for stylists in your area who specialize in the tape in methodology to learn more!

Lavender Locks

Stylists are familiar with the grey hair trend which has taken over these past few months. The ash tone based hair color compliments everyone and is very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The “it” color we expect to see next this summer is the cool tones of lavender. Lavender is another ashy tone that can easily blend in as highlights in blonde or light ash brown hair types. If you’re looking to make a bold statement, a whole head of lavender will require blue or purple shampoo for maintenance! Remember to always opt for paraben and sulfate free products to protect your hair from damage!

Summer Buns

Wondering how to style your hair? Place it in a simple bun! This is perfect for anyone with long luscious locks and lavender highlights (wink, wink)! This style can be simple and chic or wild and messy. Either way, it’s a perfectly suitable style for summer 2015. Accessorize with flowers or festive skinny headbands. Braids can be added to your bun for additional creativity and style. Now you’re ready to have some fun!

Zoolander Paris Fashion WeekParis Fashion Week entertained with actors, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson who joined in on the catwalk at the Valentino fashion show.

Derek Zoolander and Hansel have obviously come to terms with one another – graciously sharing the runway in the latest Italian ensembles. The only factor that could have contributed to the appearances of Stiller and Wilson on the runway would be comedian, Will Ferrell making a cameo at the show (maybe next year, Valentino).

Stiller explains to the media that their upcoming movie, “Zoolander 2” hones in on reinvention and relevancy of their model personas. Dr. Usha Rajagopal specializes in recreation of a beautiful youthful appearance at the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in the Bay Area.


We are thrilled to witness the new installation of Zoolander including stunning Spaniard, Penelope Cruz and fresh faced model Cara Delevingne. Actress, Cruz is not unfamiliar with the silver screen. Delevingne has made small appearances in films, but is well recognized for her intense glare and thick gorgeous brows. At the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center we are anticipating the film and are looking forward to the beauty and comics included on the runway that is sure not to disappoint!
