From Blonde to Bronde: The subtle shift into deeper color
A couple of weeks ago I told you all about my favorite fall trends, and today I wanted to dive a little deeper into one of the color trends I mentioned. It’s been around for a couple of years now, but it’s become more and more popular and it’s easy to see why. BRONDE is the perfect blended goodness of brunette and blonde. It’s not dark enough to be considered brunette, but it’s also not light enough to still be considered blonde. It most often fades from a more brunette root into blonder ends.
There’s one thing that I absolutely have to have in my life every day.
You might think it’s exercise, chocolate, or even hair extensions, but it’s something far simpler. FUN. It may sound crazy to talk about incorporating fun into my daily life as an adult, but it’s so necessary. You know I’m all about some personal development, getting shit done, and slayinggggg all the hairs... but I need to have a great time doing all of that as well.
Sssshh...I've got a Hair Extension Secret
It’s one of my all-time favorite topics… but with a twist! Today I wanted to share with you all some of the unexpected “secrets” of NBR Hair Extensions. For any NBR newbies, or women considering the method, letting you in on these tips will help you both prepare for your new hair extensions and give you some insight into the first few weeks of wearing them.
The temperature may still be in the 80s, but in my mind it’s already on to Fall Everything. It’s my favorite season—for the temps, the fashion, and the trends—and I wanted to share with you all the top three things that have me amped up for this fall season.
Never did I ever think I would join the 22” Club. You all know that for most of the time I’ve offered extensions as a service, I’ve had a pixie… and even when I started wearing extensions I started off with a lob. It’s grown ever longer, but I really thought I would try these 22s for a few days and then cut them back to my previous length. Man was I wronggg. I am absolutely ADORING my 22” life. To the point where I keep asking myself why I haven’t been wearing this length all along.
“Wow” was the overwhelming thought in my mind following my recent experience at the first ever Warrior Women event last week. When I first signed up for the event I didn’t really know what to expect, and even if I had thought I’d known—it still would have blown me away completely. The event was hosted by Danielle and Garrett White, the creator of NBR and her husband who created “Wake Up Warrior” a men’s retreat. Together they decided to adapt the Wake Up Warrior idea into a format for women. Unlike every other time I’ve traveled to Laguna, this time had nothing to do with hair and everything to do with leveling up your life. And they chose to do that by challenging us to dig deeper than I thought possible within a three day retreat.
A couple of months ago I told you all about my 80 Day Obsession and how IN LOVE with it I was. I couldn’t wait to show you my final results and tell you all about the full process. Wellll, I have to confess… I won’t be able to do that. Instead, I have something even better to share. Let’s back up.
You know how they say as you get older you start to “turn into” your parents… it seems like that’s often said in a negative light, but I’ll be honest. The parts of me that are most like my mom are the ones I love the most. In honor of her recent birthday I wanted to take a moment to shine some light on my amazing Mama and why I owe pretty much my whole career to her.
Alright, I want to take a moment to talk a little bit about stylist self-care, and why we should invest in our own hair. It’s a well-known industry conundrum that stylists are typically so busy doing everyone else’s hair that our own gets neglected.
Over the seventeen years I’ve been a hairstylist I’ve used countless different tools. Hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons of all kinds. As you’d expect, some have been better than others, but it takes something special to really get me excited. And I’ll be honest... when I first bought my Dyson blow dryer I was NOT excited. It was nothing that I expected it to be.
