We have a mini celebrity in our midst, Shala Monroque – the Editor-at-Large for Pop Magazine. Shala has been in our fashion cross hairs for some time now and has made an impression on many within the fashion and art worlds because her approach to style is not one as a trend follower, but as a trend-setter. Named one of the ten best-dressed in Vogue and dubbed an It Girl by Essence.com earlier this year, Shala’s style has been described as a pretty, eclectic and sophisticated. Wherever this unassuming beauty shows up, photographers never miss a chance to capture her likeness on film.
All signs point to Shala being a clotheshorse and while the world marvels at Shala’s fashion sense, some may think that it takes a village of beauty products to complete the looks we see before us. But imagine for a moment that it only takes three products (a styling gel, a lip cream palette and an exfoliating scrub) to look this phenomenal.
If your social calendar is as full as Ms. Monroque’s (gallery openings, fashion events and soirees), opt for simple hairstyles that retain their shapes like the ponytail or a loose, curly look thats calls for little to no work. The one downside to wearing your hair curly is the frizz-effect, so try L.A. Looks Curl Styling Gel($3.99, cvs.c.om) which defines your natural curl and keeps you looking extraordinary throughout the day and night. Just apply a quarter size of product to damp or dry hair. Note: this product does not flake!
