Knotted Faux hawk Hair Tutorial

So a few weeks ago I got to do Lauren of What Lola Likes.com hair. She was heading to Phoenix Fashion week and I gave her a killer knotted faux hawk, I posted it on my Instagram and everyone was obsessing over it. So this week my friends I decided to do the actual super easy tutorial on it. Make sure to check out Laurens full post HERE.

Twisted Updo

I'm not sure if you've caught wind, but lately I've been teaming up with some pretty amazing ladies! I live in the Phoenix area and I've been feeling so blessed because I've recently came across a lot of amazing local bloggers and creatives that I just had to reach out to!

Today's blog post is a collab I did with Lola from What Lola Likes.com. Lola calls herself a lifestyle blogger but if you were to see her adorable outfits she is always in, you would think she is a fashion blogger. Her fashion is always on point and when I came across her Instagram, I knew I wanted to reach out. 

Lola came into the salon with an adorable modern take on a 1930's inspired blouse paired brown slacks. After seeing her cute outfit I decided I wanted to do something soft, romantic yet really effortless looking. That's where I got the idea of the Twisted Updo. This style is really cute and doesn't take too much skill. Its one of those visual updos that you just have to run with. 

So check out my below YouTube tutorial and make sure to watch the video below. 


Easy Boho Rope Braid Hair Tutorial

Boho rope braid tutorial say what? OK friends, I think I have a serious problem. I love messy hair and I can't help it! When braids are too constructed I feel like they are child like and a bit dated. I love a good tousled braid with a bit of an editorial feel to it. So that brings me to todays hair tutorial, the Half Rope Braid YouTube tutorial on my original channel HERE.

Like I mentioned today and I've mentioned before.  I love me so messy hair, so you have to use the right products to achieve the right kind of texture. Luckily with blondes like my model Jess in the video we already have some of the texture that really allows us to add a lot of bulk to our hair. If you are craving a messy feel try using a spray wax or a spray clay for some extra umpf.  So enjoy my rope braid half up style on my YouTube Channel and give it a big thumbs up.


Fredric Fekkai New Blowout Haircare

You guys! You know I get as giddy as a school girl when I get new product to try, and luckily for me Fredric Fekkai sent me their Fekkai Blowout line to test out. This product line has it all! I received the texurizer (which you already know I love) Primer, sealing serum, styling creme and last but not least their hair refresher aka dry shampoo!

Anytime I try products out I first bring them into the salon and try them on a few clients before bringing them into my home and giving them a go on myself. I know, sorry clients but you are all my official Guinea pigs. After a week or so of testing them on my clients I'll bring the product home and incorporate them into my daily hair routine. Since there were so many products to try in this line, Ill just go over one by one for you all and give you my professional opinion.

First of all, I started off with the Fekkai Primer. The primer is a product that you would put in your hair damp right before using a blow dryer or hot iron to it. My hair isn't very frizzy but its known to keep frizzy hair at bay. Since my hair is fairly fine, I only had to use a few sprays from roots to ends to get my locks fully saturated. This product worked really well on all types of hair and gave it a nice shine to the hair.

The next product I gave a go was the Fekkai Sealing Serum. The Sealing Serum is meant to smooth frizz and it did just that! I have fine textured hair so I was nervous that it would weigh it down, but luckily for me it didn't. I only used two pumps which was just enough to hydrate my locks. I used before I blow dried and then about a half a pump after for extra shine. If your hair is dry or extremely frizzy, I would recommend using a tad bit more of this product. You always want to make sure you saturate it without going overboard.

Now for my favorite product. If you've been following me for awhile you would probably know I like me some texturizers. Fekkais Texturizer was meant for hair like mine. I applied a generous amount in the palms of my hands from roots to ends and immediately blow dried in for some mega lift and texture.   My hair felt thicker without feeling tacky. Yup, pretty much in love with this one!

Another fav in this line was Fekkais Brilliant Glossing styling creme. This is pretty much a lotion for dull hair. This styling creme will give your hair loads of shine while leaving it with a soft a smooth texture. This product is meant for putting frizzy hair in its place but I found if I used a pea size amount it did great in my thin hair as well.

And last but not least I got to try out the Fekkai Hair Refresher aka Dry Shampoo. I've tried a lot of dry shampoos in my day, and while this one is just as good as them all. I have to say this is probably one of the best smelling dry shampoos out in the market.

So there you have it, my professional opinion on the Fekkai's new blowout line. I'm definitely loving the whole hair care line, but who are we kidding…..you know my favorite was the texurizer. Have you tried this product out yet? I would love to hear your thoughts.


Double Dutch Braid Updo

Dutch braids are one of the biggest trends with braided hairstyles right now. With that, dutch braiding is actually really easy but sometimes difficult to get used to. The only difference between a dutch braid and a french braid is that dutches are done underhanded instead of braided on top. Not sure what I'm talking about? Then make sure to watch todays hair tutorial on my double dutch braid updo.

Salon Armor Review

Are you armed with Salon Armor? Because now I am. So….. this product is one of those products where I can't believe I didn't have this gadget ages ago. Salon Armor is pretty flipping amazing! I can't tell you how many times I've said that I needed a tool just like this one. Basically Salon Armor is a wristband designed to be any hairstylists best friends. No joke!

Salon Armor is a magnetic wristband that is magnetic. It has several slots perfect for combs, clips and even your shears! Say what!?? Since its magnetic it helps keeps your shears in place without moving. And get this, you can even put bobbi pins right on top of it and they stay put. I'm kinda obsessed!
