Gigi Hadid ☀ Summer Beach Hair



Things are heating up, and summer is melting popsicles! I have been looking for summer inspiration and was watching my friend, Bri from BlissfullBri on youtube, share a Gigi Hadid inspired makeup look and it's quickly become my current go-to makeup look.  It's perfect for summer, and works really well with a glowing tan! Gigi's peachy sun kissed barely there style is consistent in her everyday life and in photoshoots! She is such a cutie and I'm so glad that Bri shared her version of the look! 


Then I had to google how she wears her hair, and I found this Sports Illustrated picture and wanted to show you guys how to get the perfect beach hair like Gigi! This is so easy and can be done for every occasion. I hope you enjoy!


Quick Tip- If you have a straighter hair texture that likes to go flat and doesn't hold a curl well, try using a working spray like EVO's Builders Paradise to create long lasting hold and then spray with EVO's She-bang-a-bang dry wax spray for the perfect lived in texture. This will create the perfect messy look needed for a beach style.

Upside Down Dutch Braid with a Messy Bun




Who's ready for an arm workout? Haha, because today we are doing an UPSIDE DOWN dutch braid beneath the messy bun. I love this hairstyle because it really gives you an extra day without washing your hair and makes it more exciting with the braided back. 

I said it and I'll say it again, if your trying to accomplish some major volume in your bun...you need TEXTURE! I only do this bun when I'm on day 4-5 without washing my hair because I've layers of hairspray and dry shampoo giving it that textured feel. If naturally dirty hair give you the creeps, then spray a little strong hold spray (EVO Helmut Hairspray) and dry shampoo (EVO Water Killer) though you locks, or texture spray (EVO Shebang-a-bang) to add that grit. You'll be on your way to a perfect messy bun in no time flat! 
I hope you enjoy!

My Freelance Makeup Kit || Case & Products


Most of you know that I work in a salon doing hair, but I also work as a makeup artist. I normally do events like weddings and prom, and occasionally I work on a photoshoot with models. 

Today I'd like to share with you my freelance case and makeup products that I use on clients. This is a pretty big collection that I've worked on accumulating over the years, these kits take time and money to develop. So whether your are a professional who wants to start a kit, or a person who just loves makeup...this video will give you some good ideas of my favorite must have products.

My makeup case is rather large, and has three trays as well as the bottom compartment. They are interchangeable and I love that it gives me the ability to take as much as I need. I said in the video that I got this from Nigel's...but I actually got it from Namies. I always get those confused. Its very durable and travels easy because of the wheels and handle. The trays have slots that can be changed around to create whatever compartments you want inside, which it a favorite thing about them because it separates the products how I want them. I don't have to deal with plastic bags that tumble all my stuff together!



Check out the video to get all the other information as well as the products that I have inside the case. I hope you guys enjoy this video, and please ask any questions!

Double Fishtail Side Braided Hairstyle






I wonder how many times I can say "fishtail braid" in one video, in this one I probably say it 200 times haha! But that can never make me love it less, I'm addicted to these gorgeous braids. Especially when they are pulled our for a effortless windswept look. 

In this tutorial I will take a dutch fishtail braid down and twisted into a regular fishtail braid for a fun style. Braids are all about the ease of wear, and I love to do these on the day that I really need to wash my hair but I don't have time so I braid it that way you can't tell I skipped washing it! I hope you guys enjoy this look!
