Just in case you missed it yesterday!

Keyword: Tabatha Coffey, Dr. Oz, thinning hair, grey hair

In case you missed yesterday, I thought I’d post it here for all to see. Tabatha Coffey touches upon products that will help with brittle hair, grey hair, and thinning hair.

 

My favorite part is when she explains how your hair changes as you get older.  So many of my clients will tell me they want their curly hair back like they had 10 years ago, or they miss how straight their hair used to be and how can get get it back that way.  The truth is, your hormones change…you hair changes. It’s as simple as that.  Just as your skin or your body changes, your hair will too. There is no way to fix this, or stop it.  You just have to learn how to manage it every time a change occurs!

 

Don’t forget that Tabatha’s new series ‘Tabatha Takes Over’ begins January 10th!




Your very own static guide

 

Keyword: static, hair

Winter is slowly creeping up on us (ugh). And while I’m glad to get rid of the humid, hair frizzing weather…the cold, crisp, dryness of winter poses other problems for our hair. Here are several ways that I have learned over the years to stop hair from becoming staticy.

 

1. Use a dryer sheet.  Rubbing a dryer sheet over your head will help keep your hair down…and smelling nice too.   Yummm….white linnen!

 

2. More conditioner! With winter weather being much dryer, you can usually get away with using a bit more conditioner in your hair without it getting oily.

 

3. Leave-in conditioner.  These are great, but only for people with very very dry hair.

 

4. A shine spray always does the trick.  I love Kenra’s Silkening Mist spray. I use it wet and/or dry. Works great with frizz in the summer and static in the winter. The best part about this product is the amazing smell.  Some of my clients call it the cotton candy spray! Check out www.kenra.com to find out more about this product and others.

 

5. Make your own spray!  Take a tsp of liquid softener, add it to a bottle of water, and sprits away.  When you dry your hair, you should be static free for  the day!

 

6. Spray a little hairspray on your brush and comb hair when dry…although this trick I find doesn’t have much lasting power!

Way cool nail art!

Keyword: marble, nail art, polish, how-to

I’ve heard about this before, but I wasn’t quite sure how it was done.  Now that I see how easy it is I definitely need to try it. Have any of my readers tried this before? I would love to see your photos and hear your opinion on it.  Unfortunately I get my nails done tomorrow (engagement party this weekend..woop woop!!)  But the next time I am due for an appointment I am gonna give this a shot. I’ll be sure to post all about it ;)




It’s not what you think

Keyword: hairdresser, free haircuts, barbie hair

Isn’t this the truth?!  Yes, my friends do think I give out free haircuts to everyone.  Can’t make a living that way, can you?  My mother thinks I sit ho,e all day playing dress up.  Though that would be fun, it still doesn’t make me any money.

 

Society thinks hair dressers are a joke and beauty school is a breeze.  Let me tell you this, I had to study my ass off to pass my tests.  Chemistry was never a great subject for me in high school.  Little did I know, I was going to have to learn some in school.   My clients think I work miracles.  They think I can transform them to look just like the celebrity picture they show me lol.

 

I’ve always compared what I do to construction.  Spacel the wrinkles, paint the hair…it’s all similar, no?  A contractor can make a house look younger, and I can do the same with hair and makeup!  But in all seriousness, that last photo is so true.  I work on the same clients almost monthly and they always sit in my chair and ask for the same thing “Just trim it”. And yes, sometimes they DO fall asleep in my chair! haha

 




1920′s fashion is back with a roaring vengeance!

Keywords: 1920′s, the great gatsby

Although we have to wait until next Christmas for the much anticipated remake of The Great Gatsby, 1920’s fashion has come back with a roaring vengeance. Back in September fashion favorites such as Gucci and Ralph Lauren sent Daisy Buchanan inspired frocks down the runway complete with luxurious furs and Art Deco beading. The good news is you can get these flapper friendly looks without breaking the bank from fabulous e-tailers like Topshop and ASOS. The bad news? Leonardo DiCaprio is not included.
