A GIRL LIKE HER Movie Screening Invite


SoCal City Kid readers are invited to a Screening of A Girl Like Her.

Ranked one of the top schools in the country, South Brookdale High School welcomes a documentary film crew on campus to chronicle the student body celebration. The camera quickly shifts focus from the pomp and circumstance of academia to the story of a victim and her bully in A GIRL LIKE HER.


Jessica Burns (Lexi Ainsworth) is a 16-year-old girl with a secret she’s afraid to share with anyone, except her best friend Brian Slater (Jimmy Bennett). For the past year, she’s been victimized mentally and physically by one of the most popular girls in her class, a former friend named Avery Keller (Hunter King). With Brian’s help and the use of a hidden digital camera, evidence of Avery’s relentless harassment is finally recorded. But as Jessica begins to face her bully, she realizes her pain is stronger than her hope for things to change. When Jessica reaches a critical point and the film crew turns their lens toward the teen’s incident, Avery’s veil lifts during the documentation— revealing there truly are two sides to every story.


Written and directed by Amy S. Weber, A GIRL LIKE HER is a poignant feature film that takes a realistic, inside look at bullying through the eyes of both the bully and the victim. Filmed unscripted and through improvisational technique, the film explores the connection and relationship between two individuals.  In doing so it shines an unbiased light on the teen bullying epidemic and society’s role in breaking the cycle. With powerful performances from it’s young cast and its unique multiple perspectives, A GIRL LIKE HER reminds audiences what it means to listen in a world where emotional pain hides behind many façades. | @AGirlLikeHerMov | #AGirlLikeHerMovie

Vidal Sassoon is — NEW Salonist Master the Art of Dramatic Colour! Introducing NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™: Elevating Home Hair Colour into an Art Form


Vidal Sassoon presents NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ – a revolutionary at-home hair colour system that is inspired by Sassoon’s colour artistry and gives women the tools and techniques that will elevate their home hair colour to an art form.  By incorporating an exclusive two-step technique that treats roots and lengths separately, women can now master the art of rich colour with depth and tones.


Speaking with women all over the world, we found that many who colour their hair at home are dissatisfied with their current results and often describe the outcome as ‘flat’ or ‘blocky’ with ‘off-tone brassy results.’ This is made worse over time by applying the same colour formula all over the hair. Despite less than a third[i] of women in the US being fully satisfied with their current home hair colour, they keep purchasing the same products because they believe there’s no alternative solution. Those days are now over, thanks to NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ – this innovative product puts salon expertise into women’s hands allowing a truly dramatic colour result, every time.


In salons, colourists know that an essential component of great hair colour is to treat the roots and the lengths of hair separately because new hair growth and previously coloured hair absorb colour differently. This proven salon technique is the foundation for rich hair colour, full of depth and tones.


The colour formula in NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ has been specifically created to give the perfect consistency for use with a brush and bowl – just as they do in the salon – so women can achieve a precise application at the roots. The exclusive two-step technique uses the science of rheology and an exclusive Vidal Sassoon Serum to change the hair colour formula into an easy to apply glaze, after the treatment of the roots, for a completely tailored colour performance. The result is hair colour full of dazzling depth and tones which is blended seamlessly from root to tip.


Inspired by Salon Techniques:

With NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ Colour, women are able to master the art of dramatic colour at home:


Step 1: BRUSH ROOTS: Using the professional brush included, brush the roots with Vidal Sassoon colour mixture

Step 2: BLEND LENGTHS: Add the Vidal Sassoon Serum to the mix and smooth through lengths


In a global study after using Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ for the first time, women immediately saw the benefits: 78% of consumers rated Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ as better or the best at-home colour they had ever tried. In an extended test where consumers used the product more than once, two out of three preferred Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ over their current brand.


Vidal Sassoon Global Ambassador, Duffy, says, “The NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ gives women the tools and techniques to create quality hair colour in the comfort of their own homes.


This innovative product means that women can discover true colour artistry. The results are really impressive and the colour is the best I’ve seen outside of the salon with both roots and lengths looking rich with depth and tones.”


NEW Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ comes in 24 shades from classic golden blondes and rich, natural looking browns, to intense, fashionable reds.


Vidal Sassoon Salonist™ Permanent At-Home Colour will be available at retail stores in January 2015 priced at $13.99. For further information please visit  


I received a sample and what I like best is how easy it is to use! It also looks natural. What more could you want from a hair colour product? It is also much cheaper than going to the Salon!
