Last week some fellow stylists and myself had the opportunity to present our salon to a local beauty school and show off who we are as a team and salon. Everyone brought something different to the table and created such stunning looks! Here are a few pics from my look.

This past Sunday we held a photo shoot at the salon I work for. I used my best beauties with the best hair :) I cant wait to see how the photos will be used. So for now here are some behind the scenes pics.

For the second look of the day I wrapped up all that hair in a messy crown braid.

Learning from the master Marci Landgraf. This lady has taught me so much over the past year I am forever thankful.

BLEACH!

I was so excited to try Bleach London's wash in colors on my hair! I ripped open the package and headed straight for the shower. I first heard about their products from the book "The Craft" by Lou Teasdale. She is one of my favorite celebrity hair stylist who has such a fun outlook on hair. Here is my experience.

Rosé!

First I shampooed my hair with R+Co Atlantis moisturizing shampoo, then towel dried my hair really well. Next I shampooed in the Rosé color and let it sit for 20min then just rinse with conditioner!

Leaving me with the fainest hue of pink! I wasn't sure what to expect because it looked a lot more pink before I rinsed it, but I am SO happy with how it came out. This should fade out by my next couple shampoos, and hopefully by then I will have my next color ordered ;)

Rogue & Company. I am obsessed with this new line from the top hair dressers in the world. If you want to treat your hair come pick some up at Muse!

Okay, Okay, I've got to stop cutting my sisters hair. I am pretty sure this is as short as she will let me go... for now ;) But I love what we did and hopefully she does too. Gave her her first A-line, nothing to drastic to work perfectly with her curls.

I promised myself this year I would draw and paint, and create more. Mostly I just draw pictures of people but I intend to branch out this year. I must always be working on the next thing, it really is my happy place. My step-dad is my biggest fan. Here is my most recent: Cara's Brows.

Mane Mondays

And we're back at it! This past Monday was Avant Garde and I decided to do a mo-hawk braid on my lovely sister-in-law Kelly. Braids have my heart.

I'm a little late on posting this one.. a couple weeks ago my fabulous mother got to be my model for creating texture and making a shape. With deciding to tease EVERY hair on her head, this one definitely started to defeat me in the beginning. Finally getting it to a style I was happy with, this one became one of my favorite looks :) Thanks mom!

Snip / Chop / Trim

I am currently IN LOVE with this hair cut ( the bob or the lob) so I was so excited when my beautiful friend Taylor was ready for a change.

This was from when she came in about a month or so ago, and we freshened up her length and gave her some long layers.

Today I was quite lucky to get my hands on the lovely Aubrey's hair (its amazing!). Our class was on wedding & up-styling hair. This is one of my favorite things to do so I just had fun with this one and went for something messy and loose. With up-dos I love that there is always a foundation, but the rest is where ever your hands take the hair, adding twists and loops, pinning it up until it's just right.

Brows, Brows, and more Brows

On top of hair and make-up I love doing brows. I never thought it would be something I would get into... but I did... and I love it. Brows can instantly change your face, opening up and framing your eyes. Ladies put down your tweezers and let them brows grow! A lot of my clients do a combo of tinting the brows first tinting then waxing. Here are some picture of brows I recently got my hands on :)

After tinting & waxing. I love how you can see even if you have sparse brows the tint fills it in for you, creating a more full brow!

Today's class was all about the French Twist. This is such a classic hair style, yet there are so many different ways to go about styling it. My beautiful model Meredith ended up with more of a modern/ high-fashion look, which I was pretty happy about :)

Leave out the top "U" shape of the hair for styling at the end. Begin soft back brushing on everything else.

Bridal Babes

Yesterday was amazing getting to work on these beautiful bridesmaids. I absolutely love working with the oh so talented Katie Nash, who is so kind to bring me along whenever she needs a helping hand. Here are some pictures captured from the day. (All hair by me)
