I’m a big believer in the universe.

By that I mean that I definitely believe things happen for a reason, and that what you put out will come back to you in some way. Because of this, I am a firm believer in vision statements. I have used vision statements as a way to create what I’ve needed in my life, and every time they have each worked in their own way. When I first had Kingston, I sat down and wrote a vision statement for what I wanted in the person that would take care of my children while I worked.

Despite the NC weather being a bit finnicky lately, in the fashion world Spring is definitely here and Summer is following closely. You all know how much I looove a good fashion trend, and this Spring to Summer season has me head over heels.

If you follow my insta you’ve already seen a couple of my faves show up. Cream colored everything, summer sweaters, slides, and a particular pair of ivory boots that I literally can’t get enough of. Warmer weather also brings on a few other trends for me ranging from reggae music to grilling out to fresh squeezed juices.


It probably seems like Laguna Beach is becoming my second home, and in a way it feels like it is. I’m completely addicted to delving even deeper and learning even more about Natural Beaded Rows Extensions along with elevating my business. This particular trip focused solely on that second part… it was dedicated specifically to evaluating my business in detail alongside my coaches.

Hair Educational Adventure: Episode #2

The Funnelhackers Live convention

Mann, it was an intense four days of learning, growth, and inspiration. There were over 3,000 attendees to the event, which included everyone from entrepreneurs like myself with an established business, to entrepreneurs who were just starting out, to self-made millionaires who are dominating their fields. There were creatives, techies, business people, just about every type of person you could imagine made up the audience and speakers of this event.

I LOVE Education.

Especially Hair Education

I love to learn, I love to grow, I love to teach… pretty much everything about it. March has been all about education for myself and Garnish, and while I would typically say I can’t get enough of it… I have a confession. I’ve been feeling a bit of education overwhelm. You probably already know that at the beginning of March my team and I took a trip to NYC for the International Beauty Show.


Garnish Superlatives

I love my Garnish Framily!

Allow me a bit of a humble brag for a moment and let me tell you… my team is pretty fantastic. If you’ve been following the blog for a while you heard all about the Garnish “Framily” Friendsgiving at the beginning of November.

Friendsgiving kicked off our annual “grind time” and from then until the new year we worked our booties off. Because the holidays are so crazy, we hold our annual holiday dinner in January each year.

Pixies to Hair Extensions

And everything in between…

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with hair extensions… I mean, hello, I own a Hair Extension Bar. But last year I had the opportunity to fall in love on a deeper level. After specializing in extensions for a decade without ever really being able to experience them for myself, Natural Beaded Rows Hair Extensions finally made it possible. Why did I wait so long? Allow me to take you along on a bit of my hair journey.

The first important note is that my hair is thick and curly and the longer it got the more unruly it became so for most of my life I’ve kept it in varying degrees of “short.” I always identified with my pixie cut, and it’s how I felt most myself. The last time I tried to grow out my hair (# years ago) I managed to grow my bangs just long enough that I could add a few tape-in extensions. I thought the longer extension bangs might be just what I needed to make it through the inevitably awkward pixie grow out phase. And thennnn… I shaved my head. What can I say? Short hair just worked for me.

So what finally changed my mind and set me on the determined path to grow out my hair? Children. More specifically, the hair loss I experienced after the birth of my two children. Hair loss affects many women after giving birth and it hit me hard. In order to make up for my thinning temples I began to grow out my hair. As soon as it was long enough I decided to try Halo Extensions. HaloCouture Hair Extensions are a removable extension method that add volume and can also be used for a bit of added length.

Natural Beaded Hair Extensions?

Because my hair is naturally thick I had to wear two halos, which allowed me to pull them up higher on the sides, filling in the thinning spaces. And thus the addiction was born. Over the course of a few months I went from being addicted to my halos and wearing them every single day to getting even longer halos until finally I went to my first Natural Beaded Rows Hair Extension Course.

The rest, as they say, is history… NBR was the first method I learned in all 10 years of extensions that had the perfect combination of features that fit my hair type and lifestyle. I could order the extensions curly, they could be tossed up in a top knot, and they could accommodate the thickness of my natural hair.

I was completely blown away by the variety of lengths and textures that NBR offered. I started off with three rows (supposedly the “limit” to how many rows you can have), and at first I didn’t really want a ton of length… just all of the volume. It only took a couple of weeks for me to add a forth row, and when it was time for me to get my new set… I was ready to add all of the length in addition to the volume. My hair has just gotten longer and longer since and it is now by far the longest it has ever been.

Having the opportunity to finally experience extensions for myself has only strengthened my passion for the solutions they can offer women with hair loss, thinning hair, and other hair concerns. I love being able to speak not just from years of extensive training, but also from personal experience.

If you’ve been thinking that extensions weren’t for you or couldn’t accommodate your hair type or lifestyle… we have got to talk. I would love to find out how i can help you fall back in love with your hair and look just like I did when I tried NBR.

Welcome to the Hair Extension Confession Session

It’s about to get real

I’ve been wearing my NBR Extensions for about three months now and, well, I’ve had a few…snafus. If you’ve been into the studio you know I’m pretty much OBSESSED with my NBR extensions, and when they’re extra fluffy I love them even more. And as the person who helped write the maintenance sheet I should’ve been GOLDEN…#famouslastwords

Fashionable Faves

I’ve always loved the idea of being both chic and casual at the same time. As a hairstylist my fashion has always had to have a bit of functionality as well, and my style has evolved accordingly. Now, as a mom to two toddlers, I find myself loving more and more fashion that is about comfort and ease while still looking great and making me feel good wearing it.
