What’s Your Hair-O-Scope?!?


It is such a treat, when as a blogger, I’m approached to take part in fun topics. Madison Reed, a hair color company that has re-engineered permanent color to give women everywhere a healthier, high performance option at home, has invited Fashion Nexus to take part in discussing Hair-O-Scopes!!

Whether it’s our careers or our love lives, the twelve astrological signs give insight into our individual paths and personalities. Did you know that you can consult the constellations about your hair, too? Based on the traits of the different zodiac signs, Madison Reed has created a unique Hair-o-Scope. And of course the question on everyone’s mind will be, do I agree or disagree with what my sign says about my hair?!?

So as a Virgo, I am characterized as hard-working & practical. So far, yes, 100% in agreement. I definitely consider myself a very hard worker. I always have so much going on and am rarely content with only 1 actual job. I am a legal recruiter, fashion blogger, online magazine editor, and of course, in between, I am always taking on other projects. And yes, practicality is what my life is all about.

My good hair day is apparently sleek & classic. I would definitely at least say my good hair days are when it is frizz-free, but I wouldn’t disagree with sleek & classic. If my hair is looking sleek, it means I have taken the time to get up, straighten my hair, and really letting my long locks be shown. And in terms of classic hair approaches, yes, I do agree as I often style my hair straight, wavy, or up via ponytail or updo.

My brilliant hair tip is to stay true to myself by sticking with a natural looking hue. I have always been a brunette. This has always been my base. I have made use of highlights before, but ultimately, I do agree that a dark brown color is my best color. I have toyed with the idea of maybe another hint of color, but definitely not sure if I am ready!

More additional notes from my Madison Reed Hair-O-Scope — Even the virtuoso Virgo can use some guidance to gain peace of mind. I can amplify my perfectionist nature by keeping things simple, so my wisdom shines through.

Embrace the concept of perfecting the little details by selecting a hue that’s close to your natural hair color with glints of complementary tones. Let your post-shower waves hang loose, even if just for one day to see how you like it. Discover the joy of unplanned beauty! And these are bits of advice I will certainly take with me on my next salon visit — glints of complementary tones & unplanned beauty!

Check Out Zimmermann’s Celestial Vision with “Tell Me Seer”


For S/S 2015, RTW fashion brand Zimmermann went celestial, taking the powers of intuition from concept to execution with “Tell Me Seer.” “I wanted to create a collection that was airy, light, and had plenty of movement. It was from this starting point that I was led to the astrological inspiration, and all of the rich imagery and references that it evoked. Tarot cards, birth stones, and mystery” says Australian designer Nicky Zimmermann.


A more specific inspiration was the tarot card illustrations by David Palladini. Zimmermann purchased one of his original 1960s artworks, reviving it on the clean canvas of a scuba tee. She fell instantly in love with the artist’s art nouveau-style astrological illustrations.




The collection fleshed out from a base inspiration to that of full-on, RTW looks, utilizing technically modern fabrics, coated silks, as well as scuba and rubber coatings, which add a sleek finish to outerwear, including sleeveless trenches and wrap jackets.These types of looks, along with many others, are what takes this collection to a new and sophisticated direction, drawing on the whimsy of fortune-telling pastimes.


Zimmermann’s signature contrast of feminine and masculine influences breaks through in standout looks. Gold foil jacquard, translucent sequins, and woven metallic threads add a futuristic shimmer to various looks. It was these intricate details that made these pieces so stunning, very eye-catching!


Injections of tailoring and accordion pleats smarten looks spilling with untamed lace, that along with handkerchief dresses with full caplets and floating neckties play up the impact of volume. There is a delicate balance of fit and volume, which is nicely achieved.


The celestial vibe is seen throughout this collection, whether it was the style of the look, the silhouette, its shape, but certainly in the color palette. All in all, each decision ensures the appeal of fantasy is still entirely wearable. There are basics in black & white, but also some teal green and wisteria blue.


Leather in warm grey tones, is layered on top of sheer slip dresses and relaxed mens-style shirting sits sexily off the shoulder, with asymmetrical fastenings wrapping around the body. There is a chic ease about this collection that scream “FASHIONISTA”!! Any burgeoning fashionable young woman would love the easy, free-flowing vibe this collection gives off.


Many of the pieces are perfect for dynamic transitions and versatility — high fashion streetwear, a bold Sunday brunch look, summer cocktail parties, beach get togethers, and more. Bell shapes and flashes of skin are broken up by pinstriped boilersuits and cropped trousers.


Prints are diverse and layered. Moonstones and zodiacs continue the mystic-bent, mixed with medusa–inspired snake print and a darker burnout floral. Geometric constellations appear in customized trims and metal beads embedded in elaborate panel lines.


Star motifs re-appear in swimsuits which apply silver metallic embroidery and body contouring precision to couture-effect.


Fine chain necklaces with pagan charms are draped in mass and open toed mules are stamped with crested moon motifs in combinations of navy and lilac, and burgundy and pink to complete the collection. So yes, the celestial inspiration is head to toe, accessories & all!


Special celeb guests made appearances —




What a great S/S presentation, unique, memorable looks, alluring details, and perfect RTW for the everyday modern woman.
