I've always dreamed of having long, thick, luscious hair. The reality is that mine is, and has always been, very thin and fine -- and the aging process sure isn't helping. But there are so many hair extension options available, that the real dilemma becomes: Commit? Don't commit? Volume, length or both?

Creating the Perfect Deck and Landscape

Colin & Justin | April 10, 2015 | Canada Style
A really good deck doesn't stop at the luxuriant lumber from which it is constructed. To bring any deck (patio or terrace) alive it needs subsequent "layers." In precisely the same manner in which décor and accessories will alternate interior "beat," so too can visual and physical tricks make your exterior scheme look "considered."

The Hottest Athleisure Trends For Spring!

Sacha DeVoretz | April 3, 2015 | Canada Style
I love the idea of having a multi purpose wardrobe. Living on the north shore in Vancouver there are so many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. But after a hike, I may need to go to the store or the bank. How can you dress for a hike and for running errands around town?

Barbara Aleks Hecht | April 2, 2015 | Canada Style
When I stumbled upon Hatitude Canada on Instagram, and saw Amparo's amazing creations, I knew I had to reach out. What I didn't realize was that in just a few weeks I would have, not only a hat to fit my itty, bitty head, but one that was custom designed down to the very last detail.

Hollywood Needs to Know That All Skin Tones Are Beautiful

TamilCulture | April 3, 2015 | Canada Living
Historically, our Indian society has been so ashamed of dark skin that we have painstakingly shown the Western world only our fairest, and lightest-skinned leading Bollywood actresses. Western civilization has learned from us that these fair-skinned women are "what Indian women look like." And, if that is all they see, then that is all they will ever know.

Colin and Justin Deal With Total Dock Shock

Colin & Justin | March 26, 2015 | Canada Style
Aware we'd chosen a cabin with more bad points than good, we hoped that somehow, just somehow, the dock we'd inherited as part of our chattels would be in better condition than it was. But no. It was rotten to the core.

Why We Should Get Rid of the "Plus-Size" Label Altogether

Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues | March 24, 2015 | Canada Style
By separating two body types into "plus-size" and "straight size," the fashion industry is telling us that we have to either identify as the same size as the general public or not. According to retailers there is a plus-size and a straight size. Labelling sizing in this way separates us rather than unifying us. Fashion and body types are not black or white.

Colin and Justin Take on a Slanty Shanty

Colin & Justin | March 21, 2015 | Canada Style
Four months of extreme nail biting. The appraisal of several hundred pages of property details and appointments to view perhaps 45 cottages. Yup, the search for a new cabin was arduous. Just as we were about to throw in the towel, Rob emailed one last prospect: a 1980s A-frame. But it was clearly a bag of problems...

Barbara Aleks Hecht | March 18, 2015 | Canada Style
I heard about dress rentals when I started styling clients for their photo shoots. Renting a dress allows you to go to one location, try on a ton of dresses in a variety of styles and colours to see which is best for you (typically with an experienced stylist on hand to guide you).

Salt: Your Winter Boots' Natural Enemy

Leah Morrigan | March 17, 2015 | Canada Style
Salt, a highly corrosive mineral leaves its mark not only on our footwear, but also damages the natural world, metals, and building materials. In Ontario, where I currently live, winter road salt is used so heavily that the streets are white with it and there is fine white salt powder on everything.
