Styling Tips of Nicole Kidman’s Hair Shown above–TOP photo

For the 2013 SAG Awards, hairstylist David Babaii features Nicole Kidman’s  new solid bob haircut with a sleek, super straight look. Do you LOVE IT?  To fashion the look, David warmed a small amount of IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops in his  palms before applying. He then dried Nicole’s  hair with the hair dryer’s  nozzle attachment and a large round brush to smooth and straighten the hair completely. Control is a must, to achieve flawless straight hair. David sectioned her hair first: top, sides and back. To begin, he started by drying the nape area first and then proceeded until her entire head was dry. After creating a center part and to ensure sleek perfection, he finished the hair with IT&LY’s Racing Red Professional 1″ Digital Iron.


David Babaii also Styled Nicole Kidman for the Producer’s Guild Awards

At Saturday night’s Producer’s Guild Awards, Nicole Kidman’s hair sported a peek-a-boo bang and darling half up/half down hairstyle. David Babaii, Hairstylist, developed the look utilizing IT&LY HAIRFASHION’S eco-friendly and cruelty free Purity Design Line.

In styling the Nicole, he blow dried her hair with a mixture of IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops with Pure Fluid Experience. This combo gives hair a medium touchable hold w/ no build up + added shine. Using a medium round brush, David developed soft curls and a smooth rounded bang.  When finishing the style, he created a dramatic side part for the bang, sweeping the hair to one side. At the crown,  he lightly back combed the area and gently smoothed drawing the sides and top into a sexy poof at the back. The back and nape hair had soft curls using IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops to create style definition. To finish, David lightly misted the hair with IT&LY’s Pure Definition Hair Spray.

Raspberry Dump Cake Recipe

Keeping it Simple!!

Raspberry Dump Cake


Mama’s Raspberry Dump Cake Recipe, yes the title sounds unappetizing, but it is truly delicious.

This recipe is a cross between a cookie bar and a cobbler. I have been making this for four decades and still receive requests for it. It is a great addition to a brunch or as an evening dessert with a scoop of ice cream. Very easy, only five ingredients.
