The New Classic

I love my new Sam Villa Texture iron.  Its great for adding bulk to otherwise limp hair.  Here I textured the hair all over with the iron and folded it under in the front to look like a faux bob.  I love these more simple, modern styles that I don’t typically get to do on clients.  I wanted her hair to look classic with a softness, like a pillow.

 Make up is Kat Von D blush in Por Vida on the lids and cheekies,  Kat Von D everlasting lipstick in Love Spell, Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow in Soft Brown, KvD everlasting Eyeliner in Ink and Perversion mascara and subversion primer by Urban Decay.

Coconut Dip



I Love Coconut Oilcoconut


Summer time can be a little tricky when it comes to good hair days.  For one, we have some harsh elements against us: sun, humidity, ocean, and random thunder storms.  Secondly,  what is the point of making your hair look pretty if you’re just going to jump in the ocean? That is why I recommend all my clients head to their local grocery store for some tropical treatments. Coconut oil is light, so it absorbs well into the skin and hair. It also has natural anti-fungal anti-bacterial properties, which can’t hurt right?

Slather a teaspoon through your hair after a long day on the beach. The oils will help bring back some oomph into those salted locks and help block humidity from making it grow, even if you haven’t washed the sea out (and why bother?).
