GAL APPROVED WKD VMAs; NYC Rooftops & Great Hair For It All!By The DivaGals | August 22, 2014 | Gal Approved
WATCH. Hard to believe it was a year ago that Miley Cyrus shook her foam finger for Robin Thicke (much to estranged wife Paula Patton‘s dismay!), but MTV’s VMAs are back! Fun elements include an opening performance with Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande and Jessie J as they perform their new hit single “Bang Bang” for the first time. Usher and Beyonce will also perform as Jason Derulo, Trey Songz and others present. Catch all the action of the MTV Video Music Awards 2014, live from the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Sunday, Aug. 23 at 9 p.m. on MTV.
PLAY. Single Gal knows that a great place to meet eligible men in New York City is a hotel rooftop. So I perched myself (pun intentional!) at ManhattanΓÇÖs newest gem, WestHouse Hotel New York in midtown Manhattan, and toasted the night’s VIP guest, tennis great Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, to raise a glass in honor of his upcoming matches in the US Open. On a terrace on the 23rd floor, I sipped on tea-infused Solbeso cocktails as Jo-Wilfried told us his secret to his style off the courts. “It’s natural, I’m French,” he said in his sexy accent. Oui oui agree!
STYLE. Image Gal says, “Manhattan is full of secret beauty destinations. I guess I’m letting one of those secrets out. On the second floor of 39 West 38th St. in New York City is The Keratin Lounge at Lasio Studios, the little powerhouse salon that can! The stylists at The Keratin Lounge are talented and charming, and make the client feel as relaxed as Keratin treatments relax the frizz from hair. My stylist Jose trimmed my lovely Latina locks and gave me a keratin treatment that has given my hair a very sexy swish — I love this place!
What separates Lasio Keratin treatments from other brands is that they use the highest grade of human hydrolyzed protein in their products, not oils or silicones, which result in a heavy and oily result like other brands. In order to maintain my Keratin treatment, they gave me three products from the Lasio Hypersilk line, which are all Keratin-infused and available in their online shop. Using the Hypersilk products in conjunction with the Keratin give optimal results for your hair treatment. They all smell wonderful and my hair feels like silk.
