When a hair stylist is know only by one name — just like some of her celeb clients — you know she has arrived.
“Mika”, stylist for Olivia Munn, Annalynne McCord, Emma Roberts, Rosario Dawson, Karina Smirnoff, Ali Fedotowsky and many more, has just “arrived” (more like relocated actually) after 10 years at Gavert Atelier Salon in Beverly Hills to the swanky Kim Vo Salon in the Montage Hotel in the same city.
Known for her signature “dry cut,” where she cuts the hair after it is blown dry so as to see the “hair’s natural body and shape,” Mika is famous for her flattering, one-of-a-kind haircuts.
As she says: “When I do the dry cut, I look at the way your hair falls first, then I wash your hair so I can see how your hair changes when your hair is wet. After, I dry it to see how your hair changes in the drying process, then I use a flat iron to see the quality of the ends. Finally, I move your hair around to see the shape of the hair before cutting. Even if a famous hairdresser cuts your hair, you are the one wearing the hair, not the hairdresser.”
For color, we recommend Toyomi, who works closely with Mika, who creates (for us, at least) the most beautiful sun-bleached blonde highlights.
Taking the crop-top trend to another level, Rihanna has been spotted out and about in crop-tops of nearly every style, shape and color of the rainbow. To help you rock this trend, we’ve put together some of our fave cropped tops.

Johnny Wujek’s name may not ring a bell, but you’ve seen his work, most often on pop star Katy Perry.If your wardrobe could use his help, the sought after fashionisto has just curated an assortment of pieces and ensembles for Shop Wasteland. No candy bras in the entire collection.
There’s nothing Awkward about this lovely frock actress Greer Grammer sported in LA yesterday. We had to know who she’s wearing and after some investigative work, discovered the Awkward actress is wearing the 6 Shore Road Angelina High-Low Tail Dress.
We love the crochet detailing and plunging tail hem. And it’s on sale at Nasty Gal for $138! Just let us borrow it sometime.
Wearing your headphones out and about is nothing new of course – music stars have been doing it for years — but now we’re seeing everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Drew Barrymore wearing them around their neck, like an accessory, and in bright colors!
The real fun is to have them match your outfit, as Michelle does with her grey Urbanears, while Drew opts for a pop of color.
Available in over 10 colors, Urbanears Plattan style, shown above in “Tomato”, folds into a tidy size for traveling and comes with a year warranty, at a price that won’t break the bank. ($60.)
Frankly, we prefer the “Grape” but each to their own ears.

The French singer, model and actress is best known in this country for her long-time relationship with Johnny Depp (they split last year ) which is a shame since she is so talented. She became a child star at 14 with the worldwide success of her single Joe Le Taxi (you can find it on Spotify) and since 1991, Paradis has been a spokesmodel for Chanel. Vanessa also has an equally impressive film career, winning a César (France’s Oscar).
The French beauty is also known for her inimitable style, who can mix a vintage Chanel jacket with torn jeans and make it look casually perfect. This made her the prefect choice to curate a collection for H&M, called the “Conscious Collection.”
Since we’ve always wanted to emulate that French style je ne sais quoi thing, we’ll take her lead.
What attracted you to H&M’s Conscious Collection?
I really like what H&M has been doing lately by inviting a bunch of different designers and artists to work with them so when they approached me, I was really flattered. Also, it’s a very popular brand and very accessible to everybody around the world so I liked the idea of being part of something like the Conscious Collection.
Do you try to shop more consciously?
I try my best in little ways. For example, vintage is very much a part of my wardrobe. I love the style and it works in that eco-friendly way because I like to use and reuse old clothes – whether I use them just as they are or I have them transformed, or transform them myself. I also try to shop reasonably, I mean, if there is such a word in shopping! I’m very fortunate to have a lot of clothes offered to me, but when I shop I try to buy something that I really need or really love.
