Hair: Longlasting Curls

I’ve had my hair curled a couple times lately. Last week by my friend Emily and this week by my buddy Catalina. I didn’t think that the curls would stay very long in my hair because whenever I have had a modeling event, my curls have never lasted more than an hour or two. It might have something to do with the fact that the women and Leon’s who always did my hair before, did not use enough products in my hair or their products were not as nice as the hair supplies we use at my beauty school. These curls from the girls at my school have lasted for days!!! I get compliments on how well the curl holds even after I’ve slept on them a couple of nights! Straight hair is always my favorite because it’s natural for me, but it’s fun to change it up every once in a while. Comment below or like. Tell me what you think!

This week my friend Michaelle made my hands pretty again! Because I use my hands a lot at school, I decided to get an acrylic overlay so that my natural nails won’t break so easily. On top of the thin layer of acrylic, I got some nude gel polish called Passion by OPI. They turned out very nice and shiny!! I like that they look natural and will match all my clothes. It will also help my nails grow long and be stronger and better protected against all the hair styles I do everyday.

I was in the mood to dress in something different, so I decided to go with a 1990’s feel. I’ve been wearing 90’s chokers lately, so I am pretty interested in recreating other 90’s outfits. A couple months ago I had a post about a grunge outfit I put together. In this picture above, I’m wearing a dress that might actually be from the 90’s (My ex’s mom gave it to me lol), the brown tights are Forever 21 I think, boots are Black Poppy, and the sweater is by Miley Cyris and Max Azria. Oh yea, and the necklace is a vintage inspired cameo.

New Hair: Pumpkin Spice Lattee

Happy Fall, everyone!! The other day my good friend Michaelle colored my hair. Last time I got my hair done, it was a dark burgundy, ox blood color. This time I wanted a pretty orange gingery feel, so I call this one the Pumpkin Spice Lattee!!!! I really like this color and I am interested to see what hue it will fade into. I don’t know if it will be a more red or orange color after a few shampoos. We will find out though. Lol.This color seems to be a favorite of the people I meet. One client came into the salon/school today and asked for the same shade!

What color should I do NEXT MONTH?! :D

How To: Treat Burns

Working with hot beauty tools on a daily basis, you are bound to burn yourself at some point. Sure enough, last week I accidentally touched my Marcel curling iron. I was finished using it on my client but accidentally touched it while reaching for a comb. Go figure! The burn I got is just minor, a first degree one, but it still was ugly and.. burned!

wpid-photogrid_1409535315358.jpg

The burn blistered up and stung for a couple hours afterwards. I have been using aloe vera, a glycolic and salycylic acid product by Murad, and vinegar on the mark to help with healing. It has shrunk a lot and I am thinking that it will almost completely diminish. As soon as I used the vinegar the first time, it looked smaller. Don’t use Vinegar on worse kinds of burns though, because second and third degree burns are more serious and should be treated by a doctor. Vinegar is an astringent and seemed to reduce the inflammation a good bit. The Murad product contains glycolic acid which aids in the healing process, and of course aloe vera soothes the area further. I apply all these products a couple times a day. Questions or comments!?

Outfit of the Day: Rocky Horror

Last weekend my friend Nichole and I went out to an adventure we’d always dreamed of; The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not just any viewing of the show, it was the one where people are acting it out! It was fun but we were both a little bit disappointed with how vulgar the joke script was made out to be. I felt like it kind of took away from the original lines. I also wanted to act out more parts, but the people up front were the only ones who acted it out, and I hope they didn’t get paid for being overly drunk and obnoxious. Those are just my opinions though, the trash can is by the door.

Anywho, let’s talk about why I am posting this: the clothes. I didn’t want to wear underwear since I was a virgin to this screening. Instead we decided to take a more practical and safe approach, which was the dressed up time warp scene clothes. If you haven’t ever seen Rocky Horror, you are probably confused by what I am saying right now, so you need to go get a copy of the movie ASAP! The time warp scene features men and women dressed in ties, vests, some bright shirts, sunglasses, black pants, and hats. They dance and sing and it is epic!

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.

003

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.

wpid-screenshot_2014-08-13-20-39-55-1.png

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!

wpid-0810141111.jpgComment, like, stop by me for a hair or nail appointment and pick up the products I raved about as well! Thanks. :3
