My hairstylist wanted to give me an asymmetrical haircut which is basically a style where the hair does not have left-right symmetry and one side is cut longer than the other.

The Cutting Chair is a new website on hair fashion started by James Lai. It’s worth a mention because you can get ideas of new hairdos from its hairstyle gallery featuring interesting haircuts from girls on the street as well as celebrities. In addition, the website goes further to provide visitors with the information on styling products, styling tools, and how to achieve the look for each hairstyle. So you can search for hairstyles based on your face shape, hair texture, color, even by keyword such as products, location or techniques. I’m particularly glad that James gave some focus to Asian hairstyles.

The SkinFood Hop Beer Hair Wash that I’m currently using contains Vitamin H which is commonly known as Biotin, often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. 

From what I’ve read, Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin produced in the body by certain types of intestinal bacteria and obtained from food. Considered part of the B complex group of vitamins, Biotin is necessary for the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids. While bacteria in the intestines produce enough Biotin for the bodies of most people, Biotin can also be obtained from a variety of foods including soybeans and other legumes, egg yolks, nuts, and organ meats.
