Fiery Aries takes Valentine’s Day very seriously. She’s sexy and she knows it so, when preparing for whatever wildly romantic events her lucky date has in store, she starts at the top. Nothing grabs attention like soft, silky hair, so she grabs her amika Swarovski® Ceramic Styler (in pink, of course)! Featuring 100% ceramic plates and enough power to create gorgeous straight, curly or wavy styles in minutes, it even protects hair from cuticle damage by using far-infrared heat to preserve natural moisture. Give your hair a healthy surge of sex appeal at Sephora stores or www.sephora.com.
