Deep Conditioning

Today I got my hair done by a friend at school. She did a deep conditioning treatment on me to revive my hair. This kind of treatment is great for refreshing damaged hair that is dull, dry, and needs a nice healthy shine. It feels really soft now. I should get one of these treatments weekly really since my hair has been through so much crap. You get shampooed and then conditioned with special stuff, then you sit under a dryer, and after that, the shampooed again. If  you need some extra moisture and want this done to yourself, book me for an appointment!
Below is a before and after shot.

Outfit of the Day: Boho Chic

Tags

, , , , ,

002

The weather warmed up some from last week, so luckily I left a few pieces of summer clothing out when I unpacked all my chilly weather clothes. The brisk fall weather is inevitable but I’m enjoying this last month that has a few 90 degree days in store, we’ll see how long it lasts since the forecast is so bipolar around here.

Bohemian = artsy, individualistic, gypsy style.

This outfit is made up of items I’ve had a while but I’ve put them all in a new light to refresh things. I usually don’t like to dress very bohemian because I like more structured outfits or ones that don’t look as.. hippy, for a lack of a better word. I’ve realized the past couple of years that bold indie or tribal prints are popular, and flowy skirts and other hippy-esque styles are flooding mainstream stores like Pacsun. It’s very trendy, but I’m not the biggest fan, because it’s not really my thing since I think other styles are much more appealing to the peepers.  I also prefer tighter clothes but it was a long day and I jumped into this without much thought. To me this is loosely based on boho fashion, because it’s actually not very boho compared to the styles of real bohemian dressers such as Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the Hollywood twins. They are often seen in long maxi skirts, oversized hats, long shirts, and other messy chic looks that feel relaxed and liberating. I hate those gaudy tribal prints and baggy clothes, so this is as Indie as I get. Lol.

Sweater from Forever 21, white tank from PINK by Victoria’s Secret, blue tank by Bisou Bisou, skirt by MODA and the leather studded hair bow is from Forever 21. Can’t remember where the chandelier necklace is from, think it was a gift. Comment, like, etc!

How to: Care for Damaged Tresses

***I was notified by WordPress that my blog is getting a lot of traffic which is awesome! 31 views on average per hour!!!***

So, the past couple of months I have put my hair under a lot of stress, I am lucky it’s not falling out. Lol.This man came up to me today and said that his coworkers had a bet on what color my hair would be next cause they see me all the time going to lunch and feel like it is different every week. I thought that was pretty funny. I’ve really just changed it 3 times the last 3 months, so it could be worse! I guess that is more than most people change their hair though.

To care for my hair now that it is dried out, I use products that offer to protect and nourish, such as Paul Mitchell’s color care line. I have the shampoo and conditioner, and I highly recommend the Color Locking spray which shields hair from UV rays to make the color stay vibrant, and the Super Skinny smoothing balm which controls frizz and makes hair shine.

The colors I have been lately, range from literal bleach blonde to bright blue to pastel green and of course below is my most recent hair color which is an auburn hue. I’ve tried about everything now!

Outfit of the Day: Fall Fun

Tags

, , , , , , ,

It feels a little bit like fall here lately. It’s kind of chilly to me. I dreaded pulling out longsleeved clothes, but it’s not so bad. This is a pretty new outfit. Oh yes and my hair is this auburn color now, it feels nice to be back to a brunette shade. :D

005

The jeggings are the ones I posted about the other day by Hue. The “Famous” shirt is from Victoria’s Secret and I love it because it’s lightweight, kind of terry cloth material on the inside, and of course aqua is one of my favorite colors. Wedge sneakers are from Forever 21. Comment, Like, or whatever.

New: Favorite Faux Jeans

I’ve talked about my dilema with pants before but it’s almost been a year since that post. I’m a small size (0) and have trouble finding pants that fit my hips, they all seem to stretch out after a few washes. When I posted about this crisis before, I didn’t have any comments to help me find better pants, so I decided to just take the situation into my own hands and find pants on my own accord. Besides, I am a fashion blogger, I can find the best pants without assistance, right!?

Correct!
I have found that jeans are just too baggy, I have given up on them to be honest. Last winter, all I wore was leggings and jeggings and it was perfect. I found these lovely jeggings the other day at Belk’s. They are by the brand Hue and fit pretty great. They are so light weight and flexible, it feels like pajama bottoms. They are the most comfortable jeggings I have found because they aren’t too tight. You can actually move and sit in them without feeling like you’re about to burst out of them!

Keratin Deep Conditioning Treatment

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

My hair was pretty damaged from being bleached a couple times, so I needed something to make it feel nice and normal again. My hair was sticky and dull looking before this treatment due to all the stuff I have done to it with color. It only took a couple hours before my hair was totally restored with this treatment. It should last 3-5 months if I use the shampoo and conditioner correctly. If you would like this done to yourself, I can do this treatment for you because it is a service offered at my beauty school. When I wake up, my hair is all in place and barely has tangles. It’s pretty cool, and of course my natural hair is straight except my layers fly out a bit, this treatment has made my hair bone straight. If you have curls and want this treatment, it can still be done, there are different ones to use and different methods of applying the product as well.

The treatment took out some of the color I had in my hair, but that’s alright, I still feel and look like a mermaid!

This shirt is pretty cool too. It’s from Carolina beach. The back is cut out to look like a skull.

Moving on Up: Advanced Cosmetology

, , ,

As I mentioned a couple months ago, I have started going back to school since I couldn’t find a job with my University degree. I now go to beauty school, and it’s pretty great. After three hundred hours, I am now an advanced student!!!! The time is flying by but I basically love it. I don’t get to post on here as much as I would like to since I am so busy, but below is a photo collage of things I’ve been doing on real clients as well as mannequins.

How To: Be a Mermaid

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Surf’s up! I have always been into the mysterious siren creatures who lure people in with their angelic song. I feel like a mermaid now that I have turquoise hair so I figured, why not act the part? Luckily I have a bathing suit top from Victoria’s Secret that has a shell in the middle which is perfect for this look. I also have some metallic silver leggings from there that I have posted about before, but they don’t show up very well on camera. All I need are the rocks!

For the makeup my friend Nichole did a smokey purple eye and I added navy blue and pink to it for an added pop. We used the Urban Decay Electric palette for that neon flare that compliments the hair so well. I did a pale lip to bring out my summer skin. This would be a great Halloween look, but I am sure by then I might have a new look! *Swims away*

Nails: Haute in the Heat

, , ,

My friend Nichole did my nails again this week for a test at cosmo school. I was very excited about this Haute in the Heat color by Essie, but it didn’t turn out very fabulous. The color was supposed to be a bright pink, but instead it’s a red color that I’m not very fond of. Pink is more my speed than this. I was pretty disappointed, and it’s a brand new bottle, so I am sad that the color was deceiving!

My friend was flipping through a local newspaper and found this photo of a friend and I. This was taken downtown Greensboro the other week. I’m famous!! Not really, but it is cool. Haha. It’s a newspaper called Yes! Weekly. You should go out and get it and put it on your walls! Lol. Just kidding!

Here’s a better look at the dress I was sporting. It’s from Forever 21 and it’s my newest attire!
