How I Blowdry My Hair Straight!

I'm going to start off by saying that this is how I do my hair and it works really well for my texture and length. Other ways are effective as well so please don't think this is the only way. I use the tools I have and style my hair how I like :)
This is how to cut out your a flat iron for a great straight look, and a quick way to blow out long hair. Because I use certain products I wanted to go into more detail here so you can achieve the best results. My products as shown are

  • Its a 10 Leave in Conditioner, sprayed all over my hair for moisture and heat protection
  • Paul Mitchell Sculpting foam, placed at my roots for volume in my crown
  • Paul Mitchell Super Skinny, for my midshaft (about 4 inches from the top of my head) to my ends to makes my hair sleek and shiny
  • and Paul Mitchell Worked Up Hairspray, to add a bit of hold and volume

 The two brushes featured in my blow-dry is a CHI Large Ceramic round brush in the Jumbo size, and a jumbo size Boar Bristle round brush. Then I use some velcro rollers you can purchase at any beauty supply store like Sallys or Ulta. Yes, I love using these two brushes at the salon when I do gorgeous volumized blow outs! Your brushes can make a big difference in how your hair turns out. Invest in some good brushes to help control frizz and simplify styling. 
Watch the rest of my upload to see how I use these tools to create my look!

Braid Around a Bouffant Bun

Jennifer Lopze, Kim Kardashian, Tyra Banks, Fergie, and Angelina Jolie can all pull off this gorgeous sleek bun pulled back into an amazing hairstyle. What better to do then follow these powerful women's style? You don't even need to use any hot tools (unless you have naturally curly hair and need to blow it out or straighten it)! Hey this might make you feel as fierce as they act ;) Here is to all your gorgeous faces that are not afraid of who you are! 
Ps. My topknot hair tutorial is very similar to this but on top of your crown rather then at the top of your nape. Check it out too!

Photoshoot- Tyrone Lavigne

Upon my move to California I set out to work with photographers and models in my area. My ultimate dream is to work doing styling (hair and makeup) for fashion, runways, and possibly entertainment (tv, movies, theater)! I got in contact with Tyrone and was able to work on two shoots with him pictured below! Both models Sharina and Payton were absolute dolls. Payton works though Photogenics and Sharina through LA Models, I really enjoyed my time styling them. Both ladies have been modeling since they were around 13 years old and have worked in many projects.Its fun to hear what their favorite thing to shoot is and the poeple they've worked with.
 I look forward to advancing my talents and abilities as I meet and work with these amazing people! Check out my favorite shots below!

Spring Makeup Trends- 2013

Spring times makes the winter seem so far away as we count down our days to warm weather and beach vacations. We start opening the windows and indulge in less layers. I love to look up the runway trends for fashion, hair, and makeup in the spring season because it usually dictates what the rest of the year will be like.  Granted I don't think I'll be rocking slicked back greasy hair or bright neon pink eyes…but I will take a look at the style and turn it into a wearable trend. Here are a few of the most popular things we have seen on the runway this 2013!

Smoldering Grungy Eyes: Any dark eyeliner worn above and/or below smudged out for a softer look

Doll Lashes: Gorgeous false lashes drawing attentions to your eyes

Exciting Kissers: Bold lips done with neon colors and rich pigments

Ocean Eyes: Eyes lined with blue and green colors paired with a natural lip

Bold&Beautiful: lovely natural brows emphasized with a brow powder or liner

Liquid Lines: Eyes traced in dark liner top and bottom

Radient Glow: Glowing skin that looks fresh and youthful, Liquid foundations perfect this look

Dare to go out of your comfort zone this spring and try out one of these fun and flirty looks! I know I bought a few NYX lipsticks in bright colors that I'm dying to sweep across my lips. You can get NYX lipsticks at ULTA for 4$ a tube, and they have tons of gorgeous shades :)

  To celebrate the end of the school year Prom season is coming! Let's try something more unique and free with a effortless grecian feel. This is a style for you ladies with long hair or extensions,  a gorgeous style swept to the side. I bet not many girl will have their hair styled like this, everyone wants a simple curled side bun! That's cute and all, but I like to stand out at events! Knock them dead, girl! This could also be an amazing bridal style or bridesmaid look!!! 
 It's not as hard as it looks, so watch along with the tutorial!
Hope you Enjoy!!!!

Natural Warm Orange with Gold Glitter Eyeshadow

I wanted to make a eyeshadow tutorial with warm colors for the spring. This one is really nice because its on the natural side and can be worn for a daily look. I try to create things for my viewers that are simple and usable. After all, the crazy eyeshadow tutorials are fun and gorgeous but I know I'm not wearing that out unless its for an occasion or halloween! Lol! I'm using a number of products that you don't have to specifically follow, you can use other ones similar to them.
Hope you enjoy!
