Easy Marble Gel Nails Ft. Madam Glam

I love sharing these nail design videos, even though I am not a professional at this by any means! Gel nails are the best thing since sliced bread, and keeps my nails from chipping and turning into brown nubs from shampooing my clients hair color out. Haha! 
This is another video featuring a favorite brand of mine, Madam Glam (use the code SSMME30 to get 30% off your order). Their gel polishes are so amazing, and I love the variety of shades and finishes.

Charcoal Roots & Silver Hair Color Tutorial

After removing Tara's Pravana blue and green color we took an adventure down silver lane. She wanted to be silver, and we wanted to experiment (we are both hairstylists and work at the salon together) with how to get there and try out new products. Honestly, I've decided as a stylist this is going to be a VIP color that I will only do on a very select few people because the time, maintenance, cost, and reality of achieving this color is not a reality for 99.9% of people. However, we did want to share our before and after, and the whole long process in between! Hope you guys enjoy!

Products Used:
Schwarzkopf Blonde Me Lightener + 20 volume developer
DS Labs Continuum RoMaxx
Framar Clips & Color Brushes
Wella Color Charm T14 + 050 + 20 volume developer
DS Labs Continuum RoZen
Schwarzkopf Igora 4-13(20gr) + 0-33(10gr) + 0-22(10gr) + 10 volume developer
Schwarzkopf Blonde Me Toner in "Ice" + SilverWhite "Silver" + 10 volume

As a professional stylist, I can’t recommend any drugstore products or recommend anyone to do their own hair at home. Professional Stylists have spent thousands of hours of education on the chemicals and techniques used to do hair. As a licensed professional I do youtube videos for the purpose of sharing new techniques with people who are either in school or work as a stylist. Too many things can go terribly wrong, so as a liability problem I can only recommend to see a stylist who knows how to use the right products and the correct use of them. Thank you.

Coachella Vibes Maxi Dress

Dress-Tobi | Belt-Vintage | Necklace- | Sandles-Sam Edelman 

This week I've decided that even if I am not going to Coachella...I'm going to dress like I am! Super excited to be featuring Tobi clothing, sharing a few amazing boho chic summer dresses like this uber cute maxi.
I always try to dress with an effortless feel that doesn't come out trying too hard. Since I'm pregnant I have found it harder to show the bump while being carefree, so adding a cute belt is the perfect way to accessorize your baby belly (or just a cute look if your not pregnant)! And let's be real, I love wearing a dress because its a "you don't have to think about it" kind of outfit that you throw on and look fabulous!
Be sure to check out and check out their DressesCrop TopsRompersBodycon DressesMaxi DressesParty DressesJumpsuitsSkirts, they are also offering 50% off your first order (all you have to do is sign up on their site)! 
Ps. I'm cracking up in my last picture because I took these outside our salon, and a client walked by and saw the baby bump for the first time and freaked out! Haha so cute!

When your client tells you that your color was so good they didn't have to come in for can't get a better compliment then that! But its definitely time for Jessica to get her color touched up, and the cut shaped up (if you're growing your hair out try to get a cut every 10-12 weeks to keep the ends from taking over)! She came in with an inspiration picture and we got to work, ending with this gorgeous easy to grow out summer balayaged color! Check out the video to see how we got her color!

Remove Temporary Color's WITHOUT Bleach!

One of the hardest things to do with hair color is removing temporary fashion colors like Pravana Vivids or Manic Panic. Most stylist grab the bleach lightener and try to budge it out with that, but unfortunately when you're dealing with processed hair that can be a huge risk factor and really create damage. In this video I share am amazing product that my coworker and I discovered while trying to remove 2 years of green and blue color...without any damage! We are so freaking HAPPY with the results, and the product that got us to the end result! 
Check out the video to see what we did!
