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.
Introducing Virtue, the life-changing new haircare products
New technology is always such a cool thing to learn about, and it’s even better when it coincides with your passion. Recently, my studio brought in a new product line and I wanted to let you guys in on why I’m SO excited for these new hair products.
You may or may not know this, but I have a hair/fashion/pretty much everything idol and I have to tell you all... I am officially ON-TREND with Tracee Ellis Ross. When I saw her post this week about the same fashion trend I’m currently OBSESSED with I’m not gonna lie, I fangirled a little. What is this amazing new fashion addiction?
It’s the middle of June, which means we’re almost to the halfway mark in the year. Each year, sometime in June, I like to do a “halfway” check-in on my goals for the year. Goals don’t have quite the same impact if you just write...
Yep, this was my 6th trip out there in the past 15 months. It’s basically my home away from home now. This trip was for the second BMS Convention, and it was AMAZING. I attended the inaugural BMS Convention in December, and was invited back for this one as a “Pod Leader” and Trainer.
I’m just coming home from another trip to Laguna, and I can’t waitttt to tell you all about my latest experience at BMS convention. If you’ve been following along you know I’ve taken several trips to California in the past year and a half so I thought I would let you in on the number one reason why I can’t get enough of more training and experience with BMS and NBR (the business and extension sides of the same company).
Tomorrow is the halfway point between two major milestones—I will officially be 35. I am halfway to 40 (from the last milestone anyway), and man is it an eye opener to realize. Birthdays can stir up a lot of feelings, both positive and negative, but as I roll on into my mid-thirties I’m actually feeling pretty good. It’s easy to feel apprehension about getting older, but I really believe that age is just a number, and what really matters is the experiences you’ve gathered that have led you to where you are.
The results are in, and the name is apt… I’m completely obsessed with the “80 Day Obsession” workout program by Beachbody. You all know I’m a fitness fanatic, but what you may not know is that I have been participating in various Beachbody programs and workouts for the better part of the last four years. I’ve tried everything from Insanity to the 21 day fix, and several in between and I’ve enjoyed them each in varying degrees.
