Each piece from the Shop the Road Less Traveled line offers consumers an opportunity to experience another part of the world and appreciate the work of its talented craftspeople. For the Shop the Road Less Traveled collection, National Geographic carefully selected pillows, ottomans, blankets, decor, jewelry and scarves that are made using ancient techniques. Brothers Suresh and Devander Garg’s intricate Hand-carved Elephant Festival Sculpture is created from a single block of kadam, an evergreen wood common in their home city of Jaipur, India. Jeweler Panapha’s Azure Leather Wrap Bracelet combines 24-karat gold beads and azure-dyed leather using a meticulous technique to yield a bracelet reflecting the vibrant atmosphere of her home in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The line also includes elegant home goods like the textured Indian Jazz Pillow and bright Paisley Morning Pillow, both in rich turquoise hues. From Jaipur, known for its centuries-old tradition of jewelry making, come gold and red-orange onyx Jaipur Sunshine Earrings, which mimic the natural and architectural landscape of the city; and the Jaipur Amazonite Necklace that harkens back to the jewels of the Mughal Empire.

Pradesh, combines fine craftsmanship with contemporary touches.

Available only through the online boutique, the Shop the Road Less Traveled line offers colorful goods crafted by artisans using traditional techniques and featuring modern touches. Items purchased from the boutique help support these local artisans as well as National Geographic’s work of exploration, research, conservation and cultural preservation. The collection centers on three themes: Jewel Tones, which features handcrafted items in shades from teal to indigo; Neutral Luxe, which showcases texture, with a selection of handcrafted items in wood, leather, wool and stone; and Royal Accents, which emphasizes scarves, pillows and bedding in vibrant color.

Elizabeth Kapu’uwailani Lindsey was the National Geographic Society’s first female Fellow. A Polynesian explorer and a descendant of Hawaiian chiefs, English seafarers and Chinese merchants, she has dedicated her life to conserving the vanishing cultures of indigenous people, their knowledge and traditions. She is an award-winning filmmaker and anthropologist and is based in Hawaii and San Francisco.

We journey to discover rich landscapes, beautiful works of art, enchanting cultures and centuries-old crafts that uphold these cultures. Recently I had such an experience as I traveled for three months in Southeast Asia. This collection is inspired by the spirit and beauty of these lands and their cultures,” said Lindsey, whose travels and work focus on the conservation of vanishing indigenous knowledge and tradition.

Sexy Hair Cuts For A Cause With National Cut-A-Thon

HUNDREDS OF SALONS PARTICIPATE IN SECOND ANNUAL CHARITY EVENT TO BENEFIT BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

More than 350 salons will band together in solidarity on Tuesday, October 22 for the second annual Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon, a marathon styling event organized by hair care brand Sexy Hair in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sexy Hair will donate 100% of the proceeds from each Cut-A-Thon appointment to Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit organization that helps hundreds of thousands of women who are undergoing cancer cope with the devastating appearance-related side effects of treatment since the program began.

Founded in 1998, Sexy Hair has become a “must have” for leading Hollywood celebrities. Headquartered in Chatsworth, Calif., Sexy Hair distributes professional hair care products in more than 45 countries and 60,000 licensed salons across the U.S. Widely known for its “big red can,” Sexy Hair Concepts® LLC is one of the fastest growing beauty care companies that create hair products that do what they say and say what they promise. It is the #1 hairspray brand in the U.S. with one can sold every four seconds. In 2013, Sexy Hair continued to make history announcing global hair icon Marilyn Monroe as the brand’s ambassador, embodying the brand’s tagline “Styles Change. Sexy is Forever.”

The Look Good Feel Better program is a collaboration of the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, a charitable organization established by the Personal Care Products Council, the leading national trade association representing the global cosmetic and personal care products industry; the American Cancer Society, the nation’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to saving lives from cancer; and the Professional Beauty Association, a national organization of more than 25,000 cosmetologists, wig experts, aestheticians, makeup artists and nail technicians.

Last year, the first ever Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon raised more than $115,000 for Look Good Feel Better in just one day, thanks to the compassionate participation from salons across the United States. This year, salons and stylists will continue their commitment and encourage people everywhere to help Sexy Hair surpass last year’s sizable donation by making an appointment for a haircut on Tuesday, October 22. A percentage of proceeds from each haircut will benefit the cause.

Sexy Hair has been a partner of Look Good Feel Better since 2009, raising close to half of a million dollars for the cause in that time.  The second annual Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon reaffirms Sexy Hair’s relationship with Look Good Feel Better and its commitment to the fight against breast cancer, while spreading the brand’s mission to share “sexy” confidence with others by feeling and doing good. Throughout the year and into 2014, Sexy Hair will continue its dedication to cancer awareness with additional programs and new products.

After the widespread success of last year’s Cut-A-Thon, we continue to be extremely proud that our salons and stylists have come together yet again to pay it forward on October 22,” said Karl Heinz Pitsch, President and CEO of Sexy Hair.  “Unfortunately, too many families are touched by the effects of cancer in this country.  Sexy Hair is known for its creativity and celebration of individuality–we also value community and it is our hope to show just how sexy caring can be.”
