How to Score Danielle Fishel’s New Summer Cut and Color


Celebrity hair stylist Laurie Heaps recently worked her magic on actress Danielle Fishel, who we know as Topanga from Boy Meets World, and it has us inspired to be adventurous in the world of hair this summer! We love a good before and after, so check out Danielle’s Instagram photo below of her hair in Boy Meets World and her new summer cut. Read on to learn how Laurie created this fun, summery look.

Get the Look

To create honey blonde highlights, Laurie added babylights through the roots with some brighter pieces around her face and plenty of blonde balayage on the ends. “For the cut, we added lots of piecey layers, and I took a lot of weight out of the ends for a textured look,” explains Laurie. “Once the cut and color were finished, Danielle wanted me to do something less polished and more undone and effortless looking.”

Here’s how Lauria created Danielle’s hair:

  1. “Danielle has naturally curly hair, so I applied Redken Straight Lissage Align 12 Lotion all over the hair. It strengthens while adding control to your blowout for sleek results.
  2. Next, I blew dry the hair with a large round brush. However, I made sure to take small sections. You will have more control while drying and can smooth each one perfectly straight.
  3. Once dry, I went in and then took larger two-inch sections of hair and sprayed them with White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Hold Thermal Spray. It holds the curl in until you shampoo it out, yet the hair is soft and brushable. It is also thermal intelligent, so the more heat used with an iron, the shinier the hair becomes.
  4. I then wrapped each two-inch section around the DURA CHI 1″ Ceramic Spring Curling Iron, leaving the ends out. It is important to alternate the direction of the hair each time to give a tousled look.
  5. To finish, I took the CHI Original Professional 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron and ran it through the ends and tapped it in areas that looked too curled.”

5 Summer Skin Care Tips


Now in the height of summer, it is extremely important to remember that the sun’s strong rays can wreak havoc on your skin, not only on the surface, but deep underneath the surface as well. Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Jill Caruso is sharing her top five tips to keep you looking your best in the summer and all year long, along with her favorite products* that will help keep your skin protected and healthy! 


  1. Use SPF every day

You hear it all the time, and it’s for good reason! SPF protects your skin from damaging UVA/UVB rays so you can have smooth, healthy skin. Use it everyday, not just when you’re heading to the beach or going for a hike; you won’t regret it! Jill recommends using EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 or SkinMedica Essential Defense Mineral Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 35.

  1.  Don’t forget your lips!

Let’s face it — we often forget about protecting our lips from becoming damaged. This delicate area is just as susceptible to harmful rays, causing them to become dry and sometimes even cracked. If you’re looking to keep your lips safe this summer, try SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator or Colorscience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35.

  1.  Botox helps prevent wrinkles… and sweat!

“By temporarily paralyzing muscles, you are able to prevent future wrinkles,” Jill says. “This is especially important around the ‘crow’s feet’ area in the summer, when we tend to squint more in the sun. Botox is also used for hyperhidrosis, so you can prevent excess sweat on the forehead, as well as and sweaty armpits!

  1.  Reapply SPF without messing up your makeup!

Who doesn’t love easy and convenient products? Try a brush-on mineral SPF; that way, there’s no excuse to be without protection! Check out Colorscience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50 or Avène High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50.

  1.  Use nightly fading cream

Since our skin is constantly being exposed to sun during the summer, dark spots are more common. Nightly fading creams help combat these dark spots, leaving your skin flawless and fresh. Some products to try are Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector and SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum.
