wavy summer hair how toThis summer, splash into the latest hair trend: mermaid-like waves.  This glamorous yet laid-back style is perfect for all summer occasions and a great look for both you and your daughter.  Because young or old, who hasn’t wanted to be a mermaid?

Suki Duggan, owner of the Donsuki Townhouse Salon on Upper East Side Manhattan, shares her tips on how to create this great mother, daughter look.  Suki suggests:

– Section hair into 1-2 inch pieces
– Rolling each section and pinning as you go. 
– After the rollers have cooled, run a comb through your hair to get large, soft waves.  A spritz of hairspray should hold the style for the day.

Such a classic, feminine style!

kate gosselin spank leahOnce again, Kate Gosselin has found herself in the center of media attention; this time for spanking one of her eight children.

Apparently Gosselin grabbed daughter, Leah, by the arm and swaddled her rear end before walking away from the crying child.

According to In Touch magazine, Leah had been asked to stop blowing a whistle and was not listening.

“The girl was screaming and crying. Kate just pushed her away and walked off with her coffee,” a witness told the magazine. “Her older sisters were trying to make Leah feel better.”

In response to the recent controversy, Gosselin defended her actions by releasing this statement:

 “Whether the paparazzi are there or not, I am a mother first,” Gosselin told Life & Style Weekly. “I love my children and when they misbehave, I discipline them as I deem appropriate for the situation.”
