Meet Jill Buck
NIGHT: We are all about chasing the dream at NIGHT. Can you share your journey to your success as a celebrity hairstylist?
Jill: The dream I’ve been chasing is the perfect balance between being a mom, traveling the world and helping people. Along my journey of leaving a small town in Oregon, my path led me to LA where becoming a celebrity stylist came from a lot of long hours, commitment to being really good at my job and being a good person.
NIGHT: We also LOVE quotes. And pizza. So what is your favorite quote/motto? And what is your pizza order?
Jill: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.” This has been my life motto since I was 16, and I say it often as well as “I’ll take a slice of pepperoni”
NIGHT: Pepperoni is ALWAYS a good choice! Ok back to hair...What is the hair advice you give out to your celebrity clients the most?
Jill: Stay away from heat styling whenever you can! We all have a tendency to over use heat on our hair and I believe it’s the biggest cause of breakage. But using good tools, trustworthy shampoo & conditioners and a silk pillowcase will help lesson the damage.
Jill: I wanted an accessory that anyone can wear! From the way it’s applied, to the style-it is so easy to use in all hair types and so easy to style with any look. Style should be effortless and fun, I wanted to make an accessory that matched that! Thanks to the girls at Night, we were able to make that happen.
NIGHT: What is your favorite way to wear the Everyday Bow?
Jill: On a low messy pony! I only wash my hair every few days so to be able to throw my day 3 hair back and still get compliments is a very good sign!
Celebs, they're just like us. Running errands, getting coffee, heading to meetings...but what we love the most is seeing them do all these things wearing NIGHT’s best selling masks. Who can resist the comfort and chic style our beauty textiles offer!?

If you follow Mario Dedivanovic on social media, you’ve seen his A+ selfie game…which often features him resting on a certain black silk pillow. You guessed it—that’s the NIGHT Pillow. He’s a huge fan and obviously we are huge fans of him. And since we know that legit AF people roll with fellow legit AF people, we had to reach out when Mario featured his go-to for all things skincare, Laura Dyer. Laura is the Physician Assistant with Dr. Amy Wechsler and a celebrity skincare specialist. She put the NIGHT Pillow to the test and (spoiler alert) she loves it!
We asked Laura for her expert advice on a few questions we are asked on the reg so she could shed light on how your pillow affects your beauty game…big time.
Can your pillow really affect your skin and hair?
Laura: Absolutely. You spend 8 hours a night on your pillow. That is 1/3 of your day or 1/3 of your life. Cotton pillows pull moisture out of your hair and skin leaving you looking dry and dull. The moisture pulled into the pillow can also draw in allergens and bacteria causing damage and reactions to your hair and skin. The moisture in the cotton fibers cause significant friction of the hair and skin leading to unwanted hair breakage, hair loss, split ends, facial wrinkles, acne, and dull skin.
Can your pillow affect the efficacy of face cream you apply at night?
Laura: Because cotton draws in moisture, it will do the same with your face creams. Therefore, anything you're putting on your face at night, you're putting onto your cotton pillow. Sleeping on a silk surface allows the moisture to stay on your face and allows the creams to penetrate your skin and work instead of penetrating the pillow.
Can you tell us why deep sleep in general is crucial to upping your beauty game?
Laura: Deep sleep is important for a number of reasons. When you are sleeping, that is when your body resets hydration levels and when growth hormones repair cells to restore beauty. A deep sleep allows hydration levels to properly rebalance giving your skin moisture, making wrinkles less apparent and giving skin a nice glow. Increased moisture to hair follicles can lead to healthier hair. Not enough deep sleep causes the stress hormone cortisol to be released. Increased cortisol increases inflammation which can worsen skin conditions such as acne or eczema, and can also prematurely breakdown collagen and hyaluronic acid causing skin to lose laxity and become dull. If hydration levels do not rebalance, this can lead to puffy eyes and the dry skin which can make wrinkles more visible.
How often should you wash your pillowcase?
Laura: Cotton pillowcases need to be washed every 2-3 days because they pull so much moisture, bacteria and allergens. The Night pillowcase can be washed every 1-2 weeks because it does not collect bacteria and allergens.
What is your best anti-aging night time advice?
Laura: Stay hydrated. Use a reparative night cream and eye cream. Sleep on your back when possible. Always sleep on a silk pillowcase and use the NIGHT Pillow. You spend 1/3 of your life sleeping, you should take advantage of this time and get a better night’s sleep, better skin and better hair.
caThe end is near. We're three days our from Mercury coming out of retrograde, and hopefully returning to our normal selves, being able to show up on time to meetings, communicate effectively, and not feel like every one of our life choices should be questioned. We can drink to that.
Since we're coming up on the end of our time, dear Mercury, here are some down and dirty tips to getting through the next three days #unscathed.
Don't take Sh*t too personally.
You're not the only one in retrograde, and people in your life are likely going to say things they don't mean, born out of a very clouded mind.
Don't make any big purchases.
Do you really need that new car? That new Mac? Or are you just trying to cover up the despair caused by the firey planet? Yeah, just wait till next week to swipe the AmEx.
Do tie up loose ends.
This is the perfect time to do a whole bunch of random stuff you said you'd do — like hanging that picture, or getting a new trash can — so when the retrograde finally ends you'll be on track to live your #bestlife.
Relax, its all good.
Sometimes when it all hits the fan, you just gotta take a backseat and ride it out. You'll be back on your game soon. And the perfect thing to always relax on? A NIGHT pillow.
Need to know what Retrograde even is? Read here.
Retrograde is here, and she's fierce. Feeling down lately? Unable to communicate? At a loss about your entire life plan? Blame it on the retrograde, baby. We're feeling it hard, and because we love our community, want to provide all the resources you need to get through these trying times. But first, here's the low down on the planet of communication's (Mercury) retrograde.
What is Mercury Retrograde?
While all planets move in the same direction, they all move at different speeds. Mercury's orbit is 88 days long, meaning it orbits the sun in 1 Earth year.
But sometimes, Mercury slows down... and then stops... and then moves slowly backwards for several weeks. That my friends, is retrograde.
In actuality, Mercury isn't actually stopping, slowing down, and moving backwards but it just appears to be doing so. This has to do with lots of #science associated with the relative speed of the Earth and Mercury.
There are three Mercury Retrograde periods of each year, each lasting 3 weeks.
What does Mercury Retrograde mean?
The planet Mercury is said to be associated with or to rule all activities that relate to communications, travel, learning such as:
- making agreements
- sending correspondence
- traveling Classically
- placing ads
- making important decisions
- purchasing communications equipment
- signing contracts
- initiating business deals
- sending important correspondence or any type of message
- starting school or any important project
- beginning any new enterprise (as plans may be reversed later)
Why is everyone talking about Mercury Retrograde?
If nothing else, Mercury Retrograde is the time when you can blame literally anything that's going wrong with your life on a faraway planet. Hey, we'll take it. And in the mean time, take a break from retrograde while reclining on a NIGHT Pillow.
Oh sleep, how we love you so. NIGHT was built on the belief that sleep is a powerful tool, and with the right products to support your *best sleep*, it leads to feeling and looking better.
We spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping, but is that all there is to know about sleep? Check out these sleep facts:
1. 12% of people dream in black and white.
Studies show that before color television, only 15% of people dreamt in color. Thanks to color television (scientists think) we’re all seeing colors.
2. World record for longest time without sleep: 11 Days
In 1964 Randy Gardner set the record for the longest period of time without sleeping. Under close observation by scientists, Gardner went 264 hours without any shut eye.
3. Sleep deprivation will kill you faster than food deprivation
Stranded on an island? Best to get some rest. Although neither types of deprivation come recommended, after several days without sleep, you’d lose almost all ability to function.
4. Fear isn’t the most common sleepy time emotion
Despite countless stories of nightmares and terrors, scientists have found that the emotions most commonly felt during sleep/dream states are sorrow, guilt, and confusion. Still a bummer.
5. High Earners get the best sleep
According to the British Bedtime Report (yes, that’s a thing) people who make equivalent to upwards of 80K per year get 34% better sleep.
The takeaway? Sleep is unbelievably important. And a very worthwhile place to invest in. Want to get a better night's sleep?
Time...none of us have enough. There’s work, family, friends, health/wellness, travel, the sex life (or lack thereof), bills, and not to mention hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Trying to keep up with everything proves nearly impossible in a 24 hour period, so what gives? More often than not, sleep.
“I’ll catch up on sleep this weekend,” you say — until you find yourself out partying, or up with the baby, or just binging a new tv show...until 3am. And you’ll get charged if you skip that 7am spin class you already signed up for. Repeat. And repeat again. Until you find yourself with a massive pile of sleep debt.
So what is sleep debt?
Sleep debt is defined as: “the cumulative effect of not getting enough sleep”. Every hour of sleep you skip adds up. And as the sleep debt builds...so do the side effects, including mental and physical fatigue, weight gain (gasp!), and irritability. Not good.
So yes, sleep debt is a thing. And the collection agency is calling. According to Harvard Health, the adults should get between 7-9 hours of sleep a day. But studies show that 60% of women fall below that number. Sometimes it can be caused by a medical condition, but more often than not its caused by a busy schedule that requires missing our bedtimes and sleeping long enough to get back to normal.
What’s the good news?
Unlike our beloved credit cards, sleep debt doesn’t carry interest and can easily be repaid: just sleep. In order to make up long-standing sleep debt, you’ll have to sleep more hours in one night than usual.
Struggling to get to sleep? Read these tips.
NIGHT is 100% about chasing the dream, packing your schedule, and doing all that it takes to make it to the next level, but the one thing we don’t condone: skimping on sleep. And with NIGHT products, you can pay your sleep debt with added benefits!
No beauty tool can beat a good night’s sleep. That’s the philosophy NIGHT was founded on. We create products that harness the power of sleep for better skin and hair while you rest. “Beauty sleep”—what a famous cliché. But now, there’s science to back up the NIGHT philosophy (though its not like we needed it).
A new study has shown that 60% of people find that a good night’s sleep improves their appearance. And that those who can find a way to catch 9+ hours of the stuff per night see increased effectiveness of sleep on their looks.
Participants in the study reported these #killer stats:
44% of people reported improved overall demeanor
42% reported brighter eyes
21% reported brighter complexion
17% reported fewer wrinkles
11% improved skin condition
Sleep expert Neil Robinson noted that a good night’s sleep might be the key to a “better appearance,” but you already knew that.
