Beach Waves




My go to hairstyle is messy beach waves.You would think that being a hairstylist that I would have a different hairstyle each and everyday. Well, its like the mechanic that has the broken down car. I do hair every single day. So when it comes to my hair, I get a bit lazy. Horrible I know! And btw…that mechanic with the broken down car, is totally my husband!

Art of The Heart Blog





I couldn't be more excited to be doing this feature on a blogger friend that I've known…...well…on the Internet for awhile. I love stories like Amy's. She's a go getter and entrepreneur and at such a young age has found her dream job.

Amy is the mastermind over at the cute blog called Art of The Heart. Amy specializes in hair, makeup and has the cutest little Etsy Shop selling one of a kind home made jewelry. It's been really fun watching her and her blog grow.

Amy was sweet enough to collaborate with me on a helping me get the word out on my new YouTube channel. So in return, I emailed asking her to answer some of my questions. Read below to get to know this sweet beauty blogger.


Q. How long have you been doing hair for?
A. I have been doing hair for 4 years now.

Q.  Where can people find you and your hair and makeup services?
A.   I live in a small town in Mississippi called Tupelo (the birthplace of Elvis... Thank you, thank you very much!). I spent the first 2 years of my hairdressing career training and working in an AVEDA concept salon. For the past 2 years, I've been renting a chair from a stylist at another salon in the downtown area. I work as my own boss and thoroughly enjoy the freedom that gives me!

Q.  What's your favorite style or technique to do?
A.  My favorite style to do is any kind of fade on men. I love that there is such a wide variety of faded styles because it really lets me tap into my creativity. My favorite technique is probably razor cutting for that same reason.

Q.  You so makeup as well, do you like it as much as doing hair?
A.  I love doing makeup! I'm hugely into art (hence the blog name) so a blank face is like a blank canvas to me! I'd say I probably like it just as much as hair.

Q.  Who's your hair icon?
A.  Growing up, my hair icon was always Topanga from Boy Meets World! It was just so thick, smooth, and perfectly layered (at least in the later episodes), I seriously envied her hair anytime I watched that show. Now, I'd say my hair icons would have to be MaryKate and Ashley Olsen. Their hair has always been perfect!

Isn't Amy so sweet! I especially love her hair icon answer. I totally remember Topanga and it makes me feel so old! Thanks again Amy for letting me feature you! Friends, make sure to go over to Art of The Heart Blog and go say hello to Amy.

3D Fiber lashes by Younique







Its been a good while since I've done any posts on makeup, but I recently came across some Mascara that is so worth talking about! One of my good friends Beth is actually a sweet mom friend of mine. Our babies are only a few weeks apart from one another and its been really fun seeing them grow at the same rate.

The other week she posted on Facebook about her new business called Younique. I was a little skeptical as I am with everything! But after I ordered her product and tried it out, I immediately fell in love.

The mascara I ordered is called Moonstruck. Its 3D fiber lashes that magnifies your own lashes. Its pretty crazy stuff I'm not going to lie. You apply it in two applications and it's far from your typical apply two coat mascara. You first apply the transplanting gel and then the second stage you actually apply natural fibers on top of the gel to help thicken your lashes.

What I am totally digging about this product is that it makes my lashes look thick and long naturally. My lashes don't look clumpy, they look soft and full.  I think the above pictures speak for themselves.
If you are in the market for a new alternative to mascara, then contact my friend Beth from Younique. It's pretty cool stuff.

Aspiring Hairstylist Question






I really had to get out of my comfort zone for this video. I'm good at hair, not a motivational speaker. I'm hoping that the above video shed some light for some cosmetology students or new hairstylist that have tons of drive and want to know where to start with their hairdressing careers.

Right before I went live on this video, I had a little chat with my husband about how nervous I felt about releasing it. Being on the Internet is an interesting thing, I don't get nervous about doing my tutorials because I know I can do hair, but putting myself out there and letting the person I am possibly get judged was a tough one. And as weird as this sounds, with my blog and charity jewelry line Heart Yourself that's all about women empowerment and self love, I've been feeling more courageous and really embracing who I am.

Vlogging is something completely new to me, but I thought these types of videos might be fun and help push me out of my comfort zone. I think no one should stay comfortable for too long before starting something new. So please let me know what you guys think about these types of videos. And don't worry, I plan on doing my weekly hair tutorials as well.

So basically the above video is from a sweet viewer name Leigh Anne. She is going to Cosmetology school and wanted to know how I get involved in all that I do. I hope I answered your question Leigh Anne in my above video and thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to get out of my shell.

Do you have a hair question you would like me to answer? If so, email me, tweet me or instagram me #askjenny.
