Venezuelan actress and model Patricia Velásquez has been seen in The Mummy and The L Word, but to me, she'll always be Marta from Arrested Development. She's as funny as she is pretty, and now she's becoming a beauty entrepreneur, too. On Feb. 9, she's officially launching Taya, a hair care collection that incorporates sustainably harvested ingredients from the rain forest.
Patricia looked to her personal heritage in titling the collection. Taya means "I am" in the dialect of the indigenous Wayuú people, whose traditional beauty recipes inspired the formulas. In a statement, she said, "I wanted every person that uses the indigenous botanicals and generational recipes embodied in Taya's formulations to feel the energy of the rain forest, and feel a part of it, and to experience what for me is our source of life, spirit, and replenishment."
If you are indeed eager to feel the energy of the rain forest, you can peruse the goods on HSN.com now. (We haven't tried them out yet, but you have to admit, Patricia has always had gorgeous hair.)
