They say a woman who is going to change her hair is about to change her life – and I say heck yes. Lobs are ideal for so many reasons – quicker drying, less to put up, etc. However, despite the lighter weight, the chopped look can be incredibly diverse. Sleek and sexy has been my recent go-to. The look can be achieved quite simply:
If hair is wet, blow dry without a round brush.
Grab your straightener and go to town. I usually do this part guided with a small comb so my hands won’t get too hot with the heat of the tool.
Once hair is straightened I’ll grab my favorite hair oil and run through the root ends. Right now I’m all about The Ouai Rose Oil.
Lastly and the most important step is fix styling paste. I usually reach for Dry Bar Whiskey Fix and apply to the roots of the fly aways with a toothbrush resembled brush.
Montenegro is exactly how I would imagine Genovia from the Princess Diaries would be like. It was so charming – filled with genuinely happy people from small towns, either by the water or in the mountains. Actually, the mountain folks definitely could have been in The Sound of Music. Basically Julie Andrews would really be very pleased here. My trip to Montenegro was too quick and I’m already dying to go back!
The BET Awards had to be the most lively and memorable award show I have ever attended. Some major acts included Mary J Blige, New Edition, Bruno Mars, and Migos. I went for a classic sultry look that evening:
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Everything is FRE$H – new wardrobe, makeup, etc. I ventured over to Cabo for the weekend with my oldest sister, Erika, and paid my dues ala glam squad for her and the gals. Glowing skin was obviously my main focal point with pops of color to be playful around la playa. Makeup Forever’s star powder in vibrant colors – such as iridescent fuchsia, orange, and blue were my go-to. Ofra sent me this fabulous blush/highlighter that came just in time – everyone was basically Jlo for the weekend. Lastly, the secret to creating the perfect glow? SETTING SPRAY – Smashbox photo finish primer water before AND after application. I kept it pretty effortless with the hair and used Ouai beach wave spray and oil. Xx
Air+Style is a weekend filled with snowboarders, booze, and of course a sick lineup. I did a Snapchat takeover for Instant and had to make sure my makeup stayed all day (it was also drizzling). Smashbox setting spray is literally GOLD. I kept my hair pretty easy and used Ouai wave spray for an effortless look.
I was inspired by Jen Atkin for this shoot – she has such a vision with her brand ‘The Ouai.’ I highly recommend the wave spray as well as hair oil for everyday use. The product line has such a luxurious scent and is affordable. Best part of this shoot was Jen Atkin reposted my work on her Ouai profile – dreams come true y’all.
My beautiful and talented artist friend, Katie Kimmel, asked me to glam her up for the Primetime Emmy’s. We were super limited with time but made it weeerrrrrk. Key products – Nars red lippy and Ouai wave spray. Xx
