My Everyday Hair Routine





Ask Jenny time! You may or may not remember when I used to do my "Ask Jenny" posts where I answer your hair questions. While it was really fun, it got very time consuming. I'm still here to answer all of your hair questions but I thought it would cool if I answered your questions in video format instead of a blog post. Believe it or not but its a lot easier for me to do a video answering questions  than a writing a post. I describe everything with my hands and eyes. True story, watch the above video!

This weeks question was from a viewer who wanted to know what my daily hair routine was, so check it out. Product links below, and if you love it don't forget to subscribe to my  new YouTube Channel for weekly hair love.

Funky Color How-To




As women we all get bored with our hair color a time or two. In my case, I'm always bored. I used to do exciting colors or cuts with it left and right, but since I've started blogging I've been less adventurous since I need my length for my weekly hair tutorials. 

Luckily for me, there are tons of fun temporary hair colors out on the market. A punky color line that we use inside of the salon a lot are the Deep Shine Direct by Rusk vibrant shades.

This ammonia free color line is really simple to use and doesn't require a developer. Just watch my video below for my easy how-to.

Hairdressers At Heart






Hey friends, what a whirlwind of craziness the past six months have been!! I've been so busy with so many great collaborations on top of having my little ones, that I haven't gotten to do a regular post for awhile. I've been working really hard on creating fun YouTube content as well as working hard with my women empowerment Jewelry line called Heart Yourself where I donate a portion of my proceeds to a charity that is dear to my heart called Fresh Start. Which is what I'm wanting to post about today because I desperately need your help.

Wella professional hair care is hosting an amazing giveaway for Hairdressers at Heart. Basically any charitable hairstylist can enter to win money for their charity of choice. I entered to win this amazing giveaway because it would mean so much to me to be able to give to my favorite charity.

If I won Wella Supports Your Cause giveaway, money from it will help spread women empowerment through the Fresh Start Foundation. Wella supporting Fresh Start would help transform women's lives through engagement and education. It will help fund programs and services, which give women the knowledge, skills, and support to improve self-sufficiency and in turn make better choices for themselves and their families. It will also fund services such as social work, education, mentoring, family law support, personal development and a computer-equipped Internet accessible learning Center.

So you can see that it would be an amazing way to encourage women empowerment and giveback to our community. Don't forget to vote each and every day right HERE. Thanks and I love you guys!
