New and buzzworthy July finds a la Lyss Stern

July means beach hair, don’t care!

Talking about beach hair, I have a new fabULyssfind from Alterna Haircare — the Anti-Frizz collection, which came out in late spring, and the Caviar Resort collection, launching now. I am personally obsessed with the Anti-Frizz collection and found that it’s not even necessary to use a flat iron (something I can usually NEVER skip) when I use the shampoo and conditioner. People are always now asking if I got a blowout when I use the Blowout Butter. Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter is the most fabULyss lightweight melting cream-to-oil blowout balm that tames even the most defiant, frizzy hair while protecting from heat-styling and humidity to seal in moisture, shine, and smoothness. I promise you will thank me for introducing you to this product.

Available at Ulta and Ulta.com, Alternahaircare.com, and fine salons.

Another new fabULyssfind on the Upper East Side, Bespoke Brows NYC — they are brow obsessed! They wax everywhere from the neck up, and specialize in eybrow waxing, tweezing and tiniting, as well as las tinting and lash lifting. The wax that they use is what really sets them apart — it is a gentle, lavender, cream-based wax, which means that it is heated to a lower temperature than standard waxes so there is no risk for burns, and it smells AMAZING, just fabULyss! The lavender also soothes skin as it waxes. They want you to leave the shop feeling great and looking gorgeous — even more so than you do now! They do not require appointments, so just come on in and say hi!

[987 Lexington Ave. between 71st and 72nd streets, (917) 409–0665, www.bespokebrowsnyc.com]. Open Monday through Friday, 10:30 am–7:30 pm, and Saturday through Sunday, 10:30 am–6 pm.

I want to introduce you to a very important class that I recently came across. Abby Price is a pediatric ICU nurse with more than 8 years at New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell. After having her own two boys (2 and 4 years old), she realized there was a real need for emergency preparedness education among young families. Thus, the idea for her business, CPR-RN! As a certified American Heart Association instructor and seasoned nurse, her goal is to make learning skills like CPR, airway clearance due to obstruction, and other emergency skills easy to master and commit to memory. While most parents realize how important these skills are to learn, they often get left on the to-do list due to the lack of convenient classes. To this end, she makes every effort to be flexible with clients and come to them at a time that works best for their group!
