Tangled Up

If you are like me, and despise combing out your hair, during or after a shower, you must look into a Wet Brush Pro. Hands down, the best detangling brush I have found so far. The flexible, and elongated bristle’s easily detangle the hair, without causing breakage. 

I always recommend applying a leave-on conditioner to the hair, before, you even attempt to untangle the hair from a shower. One of my favorites is Pinstripe from R+Co. Start brushing it out, working from the bottom up, so you do not cause any breakage. It’s also the perfect accessory to keep in the shower, to brush that conditioning mask through… You know, the one you should be doing as a treatment once a week. Take care of that hair ladies! Do you have any tricks that you found to detangle your hair?

Freshen Up

In a hair rut? Try something different. 

This easy take on a classic bun, incorporates three hair knots to make one awsome style. 

You will need

  • Clear elastics
  • Bobby pins

How To

  1. Tease the top of your hair to give a little extra volume.
  2. Make your first section by running your fingers from your temples, straight around to the back of your head.
  3. Style your first knot by pulling the hair half way through an elastic and then wrapping it a few more times to secure it (the messier the better).
  4. Make another section below the first, by running your thumbs along the bottom curve of your head. Repeat #3.
  5. Gather the leftover hair to make your last knot.
  6. Fluff up each knot by pulling it apart a touch and then secure and loose or crazy ends with a few bobby pins.
  7. Lastly, spritz a little hair spray all over to secure it.

Photos & Style

Awhile back, I had a blast working with Kelly from Mimosas Manhattan for a photo shoot. I colored her hair adding some blonde highlights for extra pop around her face and then we came up with this amazing braid, that has a half up – half down feel to it. It gave the illusion of wearing the hair down, adding softness with an edge. Girl can take some fierce photos.. Check out more of her blog and this photo shoot here.
