DISGRASIAN’s Summer Reading: Thy Mai’s Hair Channel

August 27th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

We’ll be away from our desks the month of August, carrying on with the non-bloggy aspects of our lives, watching mindless movie blockbusters, and indulging in summery drinks made with generous pours of bourbon. During this month, we’ll be linking each day to a different website that we ♥. Hopefully you’ll discover something delightful and new while we’re gone. If not, you are a serious Captain Crankypants and are probably in dire need of a summery drink made with a generous pour of bourbon.

‘Til September, lovelies.




The cool kids at Giant Robot and Kumquat will probably tell you that they love Thy Mai. She’s been lopping off their locks for years (Ever checked out Martin Wong? Dude has an awesome head of hair!), and recently gave me a hot (if I do say so myself) new coif before donating my old locks to eco non-profit Matter of Trust.

Mai’s a saucy, sassy, ebullient hair afficianado who may be one of the world’s best natural conversationalists. Two things I already understand about her–she loves hair, and she loves to share. It’s no wonder, then, that she’s been offering free hairstyling lessons on the web via her hair channel, to show–by working on herself–how hair dunces like me can use bobby pins and flat irons to look hotter than the Hills chicks we make fun of on this blog. Like Michelle Phan with makeup, Mai operates in realistic body positions and points out easy fixes, which makes styles more doable than daunting–a welcome alternative to walking out of the salon looking like a supamodel, only to look like a supamoron for the following six weeks until the next visit.

Product Lust: The Phillip Lim/OCA Tee

May 13th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

We learned from Angry Asian Man that fashion “It” boy Phillip Lim has teamed up with esteemed non-profit organization OCA to create an exclusive tee for Nordstrom just in time for Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. Sales will benefit OCA’s youth programs, and by golly, doesn’t that shirt have a beautiful drape at the neck?

I know some of you are all gonna get aaaaaallll up in my grill for recommending you buy an $85 tee, but think of the kids! They’re little and Asian American, which means they’re the cutest small people you’d ever want to meet! Surely they deserve a few extra bucks. And just to say it again, look at that drape at the neck!!!

Buy the tee here.
