FC sat down to talk about Spring/Summer Hair Trends with September Sirico, owner of Blow Dry Bar in Southport and Westport and her Stylist Gabby Rivera, who specializes in event styling and airbrush makeup. http://www.blowdrysouthport.com
FC: What are your favorite hair trends for this Spring/summer?
SS/GR: It thrills us to see people working with their natural hair textures instead of fighting them. Wavy, curly, tousled big looks are in. Pin straight is out. Say good bye to keratin treatments!
FC: What are your must have products for achieving these new looks?
SS/GR: For a tousled heavy wave Ouidad Sea Salt Spray does the trick with out any stick or crunch.
FC: What celebrity do you think has the best cut/style?
SS/GR: We love Scarlet Johansen and Angelina Jolie for their sexy sophisticated style that always looks effortless and undone.
FC: If you could make-over any celebrity who would it be?
SS/GR: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen .
FC: How do you feel about the short pixie – over it or still love it?
SS/GR: Love it!  If you can rock it go for it! When the hair is short you can really play up your facial features. Jennifer Lawrence, Hallie Barry and our fave Charlize Theron are confident and gorgeous!
FC: Any treatments for keeping your hair looking fabulous coming into the summer months?
SS/GR: Deep Conditioning Treatments!  Once a week or once a month depending on the treatment. The elements of sun salt and chlorine can reek havoc on your locks. Especially if you have naturally curly or chemically lightened hair. Get on a treatment regiment. Feeding your hair is just like feeding you body. It’s needs great nutrition -the motto you are what you eat applies for your hair!
FC: Any other favorite summer hair tips?
SS/GR: Braids are still a hot tread. And for fishtail braids the messier the better. However braids like mini skirts have an age limit especially for formal events!!

Lastly, in between blowouts or styling coming in for a treatment with a braid it gives your hair a break from heat styling but will still give you a flawless clean summer look


Always wanting to look stylish while breaking a sweat, FC is constantly on the lookout for chic athletic wear. Lucky for us we found Carbon 38, a new website showcasing the coolest fitness clothing from around the world. For those who want to ditch the basic black there is no better place to find funky prints and vibrant colors. Carbon 38 has the best selection of leggings we have found and carry designers we have never heard of. Add some color and spice to your workout wardrobe. http://www.carbon38.com



Obsessed since it’s debut, the Celine Trio is classic and versatile.  Don’t be fooled by the minimal aesthetic, the bag has three envelope clutches that snap together creating endless carrying possibilities.  Whatever the occasion or travel destination this bag will be your “go-to” every time. Buying tip: the Trio comes in two sizes, small and large.  I would recommend the small…it fits the body perfectly, while still holding more than just your phone and lipgloss!  http://mitchellstores.com/site/


We first saw the news on Facebook and then while dining at The Whelk confirmed the delectably exciting news that Bill Taibe (Chef/Owner of the Whelk and Le Farm) is opening a new Asian Fusion restaurant right around the corner from the Whelk in The Bridge Square Market Plaza. So far there is no name but an estimate that the restaurant will open in about three months. We can only imagine how delicious Asian Fusion will be with the creative genius of Bill Taibe. Stay tuned as the details emerge….
