ABOUT JOYCE GIRAUD:
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Joyce Giraud was brought up by a single mother, providing her from an early age with the appreciation and understanding of female empowerment and what it truly means to be a role model. At the young age of 16, Joyce was discovered at her job in a fast food restaurant by a photographer. Shortly thereafter, she starred in numerous campaigns, commercials and magazine covers. Realizing her passion for the spotlight was more than just a fleeting desire, Joyce decided to enter numerous competitions. After being crowned Miss Puerto Rico and placing as the second runner-up in the Miss Universe Pageant, Joyce went on to pursue a career in entertainment and has since worked on countless television shows, films and reality shows as both an actress and a producer. Throughout her travels, Joyce made it her passion to hunt for the best and most unique products pertaining to beauty. It was in these exotic destinations that Joyce discovered the amazing remedies of organic miracle oils.
I am so excited whenever I discover another amazing hair care company that specializes in making my hair beautiful, and yes, SEXY. My hair is one of my main focuses of beauty. If my hair does not look good, then I will not even leave the house. That sounds so shallow, but it is so true!
PK by Pearson Knight is Pearson Knight is an independent, free-spirited hair stylist + style maker who has created beauty products that reflect his passion for high-fashion and fierce love for effortless, natural + raw beauty.
That sounds like just the kind of hair styling products that I seek! Products that make me look effortless and natural, so I knew that PK by Pearson Knight products would be right up my alley.
Beach Grit Volume and Texture Spray
Sexy, effortless, casual style that is always a good look on any day. Mist on damp or dry hair from root to tip for easy, undone texture and enhanced natural waves. Or, just hit the roots for extra volume.
I am in love with Beach Grit! First of all, it smells heavenly! I apply it to my hair when it is dry, and spray it all over, and then I start scrunching it. This adds delightful beachy, wavy texture and shine. I love it!
For effortless texture and hold, apply into palms, then work through damp or dry hair to define and shape as desired.
I always enjoy a texturizing product in my hair styling routine because I like to tame the baby hairs closest to my face. I also use the mud to 'flare out' and add volume to my bangs and my sides. (This is similar to how I styled my hair in the 80's.) This product gives my hair amazing, yet flexible hold without any flakiness.
I can count on PK products to ensure that I never have another 'bad hair day.' Another plus is that my hair is done in minutes, and I am always thrilled with the results!

Not all hair care lines are created equal. Breaking through the hair care industry, comes Ms. Pompadour, a new, premium hair care line formulated for all hair types, structures and scalps with a unique story – engineers turned hair care brand founders.
Designed and formulated by the guys behind Mister Pompadour, engineers and product designers, Zack Henry and Matt Davis, set out to create a sister brand to their men’s hair care line after receiving consistent feedback from women using Mister Pompadour, wanting a female version, they decided it was time to bring that same passion and energy to improving women’s hair as well.
The engineers set out methodically to formulate a premium hair care line for women – reaching out to friends, family and hairstylists, among others, to gain insightful feedback, ultimately realizing that there was a need for quality hair care products with balanced natural ingredients that work – was hard to come by. So, Zack and Matt’s journey continued and Ms. Pompadour was created.
Ms. Pompadour products are packed with beneficial botanicals like olive fruit extract, aloe leaf juice and rice protein and are free of any sulfates, parabens or sodium chloride, creating weightless formulas, keeping hair soft, frizz-free and manageable year-round.
The full product line includes:
- Curl Defining Shampoo and Conditioner
- Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner
- Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner
- Leave-in Conditioner
- Curl Defining Cream
- Heat Protectant Mist
- Volumizing Mist
- Smoothing Serum
- Dry Shampoo
I love trying new hair care products! I was thrilled to get the chance to review Ms. Pompadour hair care. It is so very luxurious and makes my hair perform and look its very best. I received the following products to review: Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner, Leave-in Conditioner and Dry Shampoo.
I love the luxurious lather that the strengthening shampoo gives. It leaves my hair perfectly clean and so incredibly shiny. After washing and rinsing my hair, I apply a nice amount of the strengthening conditioner. I leave it in for the length of time it takes me to shave my legs. (About five minutes.) After rinsing the conditioner and towel-drying my hair, I apply the leave-in conditioner. The leave-in conditioner is the perfect finishing touch. My hair is color-treated, and is naturally dry. The leave-in conditioner gives my hair that boost of extra moisture it needs to keep it looking silky and smooth.
I use the dry shampoo in between washes, like today, when my hair just needed to be refreshed. I apply it to the roots and flip my hair upside down and give it an all-over spray. I rub the dry shampoo throughout my hair, and flip it back up. My hair is left feeling fresh, clean, bouncy and full of volume and shine. It does not leave a residue, like so many dry shampoos usually do.
After a week of using Ms. Pompadour hair care, I feel like I don't want to use anything else! My hair is so very healthy, shiny, bouncy and beautiful. No more frizz, no more breakage, no more dry ends. I absolutely love it! (My daughter loves it, too!)

Label.m-usa products span the full-spectrum and rival any major hair care line with a complete line that is geared toward a cool, hip fashion-minded audience.
My thoughts: I was sent samples of label m. hair care to review. I received the label.m Honey & Oat Shampoo and the label.m Honey & Oat Conditioner, which both smell kind of like pumpkin pie spice and both leave my hair perfectly nourished and so soft and shiny.
I also received the label.m Brightening Blonde Shampoo and the label.m Brightening Blonde Conditioner, which perfectly brighten the blonde highlights in my hair. My hair is left shiny and gorgeous!
After washing, conditioning and towel drying my hair, I apply the label m. leave-in Protein Spray, which helps to add additional moisture to my hair. This extra moisture is especially beneficial during the warmer weather when my hair gets dried out from the sun. This amazing spray also replaces keratin protein which is naturally lost every day, so it protects my hair from split ends and breakage.
When my hair needs a bit of texture, I love to add some beachy waves with label m. Sea Salt Spray. It always adds that special touch of sexiness. I just spray it onto my hair, usually when it is dry, and I kind of scrunch it up in places where it looks flat and lifeless to add volume.
When I am seeking a soft, shiny finish, I love my label m. Souffle, (which is a soft cream-wax) to create and define loose, natural waves or undone texture. The Souffle contains Cupuaçu Seed Butter to nourish my hair. I also use it to tame fly-aways and unruly baby hairs.
Last but not least, I count on my label m.Grooming Brush to style my hair and make it look healthy, shiny, sleek and beautiful every single day. I feel that using label m. products makes my hair as healthy and as luxurious as the runway models' hair does.
Born out of the love for creativity and passionate dedication to the craft of hairdressing, label.m was created in London in 2005 by Toni Mascolo, CEO and Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, Global Creative Director.
