We are all about that hair — and makeup too! Here at Stylish, we’ve never seen a hairstyle or makeup trend we couldn’t talk about for days on end, so we started a podcast to dish on all the latest beauty news — from hits and misses on the red carpet to celebrity hair and makeup gurus’ dos and don’ts. Each week, Us Weekly executive editor of beauty and style Gwen Flamberg talks with some of the best in the biz about what’s new in hair, makeup and style in our Get Tressed With Us podcast. Listen above!
This week, Gwen and senior reporter Travis Cronin welcome Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin and her daughter Ally Shapiro to tell Us why they started designing protective face masks during the COVID-19 crisis. The dynamic duo shares the small acts of kindness they engaged in as the pandemic started, sending pizzas to essential workers and helping to boost the spirits of hospital staff in Florida, where Jill has been living with her boyfriend Gary Brody.
They continued their goodwill by designing protective face masks, which are “buy one, give one,” so with each mask sold, one is donated to a front line worker. Celebs and mega influencer TikTok stars including Addison Rae and Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have been spotted wearing them! The cotton designs are adorable, including trendy tie-dye which the mother-daughter team hand dye themselves. Listen to Jill and Ally tell their story, then scoop up one for yourself and help give back! A pack of three masks costs $65 (currently on sale for $45!) and Jill and Ally are generously offering Us Weekly readers and ‘Get Tressed With Us’ podcast listeners a 15% discount!

Zarin also tells Us all about her new design initiatives for Jill Zarin Home, including details on her rug designs and how choosing the right floor covering can help you create a cozy and chic environment for your work from home office! Listen to the episode and get the scoop on the new cool décor she’s designing now and be one of the first to know what it will be before the line drops in October!
But of course, we couldn’t not ask Zarin for her thoughts on the breaking news that Dorinda Medley won’t be returning to the new season of Real Housewives of New York and she had quite a lot to say! If you’re a die-hard fan of RHONY, you are not going to want to miss this episode! Jill, who actually brought Medley on the show, shares why she believes it may have been the right time for Medley to exit and also dishes some intimate details on why she feels she relates to the Berkshires native and the real reason Dorinda and John broke up. Listen to the podcast and hear the juicy details!
