🚨 I’m not a makeup artist!

👉BUT I am a busy mom and business owner/hairstylist who still wants to feel good when I walk out the door, and I know I’m not the only one who wants to be able to make good hair and makeup days happen, despite the lack of time and/or energy! Am I right?!

✨That being said, as a hairstylist with SOME experience applying makeup professionally (a long long time ago 😅) I have tips and tricks for myself to be able to create feel good looks in significantly less time, that I’m happy to share with you all!

⭐️There’s definitely a time and place for more intricate hair and makeup, and I do go a lot more dramatic and spend way more time when it’s a special occasion.

👉But it’s not always to spend that much time or energy doing your hair/makeup during the workweek or even on your day off when you’re tired or busy!

✨So I’m sharing these tricks for looks that feel like you spent loads of time, despite spending way less!

💛They are far from perfect, but that’s the point, they’re JUST enough to make you feel good with a lot less effort!

Isn’t that the dream 🖼 when we’re swamped with work or “to-do” lists?! 🤩
.
⭐️So stay tuned, because I have another how-to reel coming up on how I created this subtle pop of color that defines the eyes, as well as all the makeup I used to create the look, in just about 6-7 minutes!
.
Let me know in the comments below if you want to learn how to create this look for yourself in about 6-7 minutes, or if you want to learn the hairstyle, which also only took about 7 minutes 🤩

When you forget to take pics but your clients got you! 😂🥰🙌

I applied a partial balayage to this lovely client to add a pop of brightness while maintaining a blended gradient from roots to ends.

✨ Watch me create a polished wave in 3 minutes!

🔑 Key points:

🔑 Reduce the amount of style time because with a larger barrel, you can take less sections of hair!

🔑 You don’t need to blowdry your hair or straighten your hair first with this technique, and that cuts out loads of time!

🔑 This curling iron/technique will simultaneously smooth out your hair while it adds a light wave, removing the need to blowdry or flat iron it to smooth it first

🔑 Results and the time it takes will vary based on your individual hair texture and density, but it will be significantly less time than creating this look with a blowdry and/or flat iron then waving after

💡Tip: If you need to shampoo your hair, do it the night before, prep it with your necessary products (smoothing products for textured hair, or texturizing products for straight hair), and let it air dry over night! Then just spend 5-10 min waving in the morning because it’s already dry!

⭐️And voila, you have beautiful movement and light wave infused in your hair, making it look like you spent 30 min or more styling, when you only spent 5-10 min!

⭐️ Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions, or if you’d like a separate post with what I used to create my 15 minute makeup look!

First day back to work after was such a wave of emotions, and ultimately an incredibly rewarding day! It was so tough to say “bye” to my little baby this morning, but it made coming back home to him that much sweeter 🥰.

I missed taking care of all of my clients so much! Getting my hands in some hair and creating fresh, vibrant looks for everyone today was such a blast. I’m so looking forward to seeing the rest of you for your upcoming sessions with me 🤗💛

These transformations leading up to today and coming up over the next few days have been/will be so special. Taking care of you all has made my days, weeks and months during this pregnancy💛, and Im looking forward to having a very different kind of post to share with you all in the next few weeks 😉🤰 👶🍼!

This hue makes me think of cinnamon sticks 🥰
.
It’s not that often I get to customize a warm, coppery hue, and that makes it so exciting every time! 💛
.
Doesn’t her hair look so shiny and healthy⁉️
I used @wellahair to glaze her to this warm, vibrant look.
💡It’s Demi-permanent color, which is so much more gentle on the hair and will fade out more gracefully over time than using permanent color.

Patience is a virtue 🥰
Swipe to see the progression of her session work!

I’m over the moon with this beautiful clients results, after she first came to me as a color correction in May 2021.
.
She first came to me with loads of uneven red color throughout her hair, and wanted to go blonder again. To preserve the integrity of her hair as much as possible, I gradually lifted the red out, creating this rooty, blonde hue with a bold money piece, over the course of 3 sessions. And she’s brand new!
.
Who else has an exciting new change scheduled with me before my maternity leave begins?! Can’t wait to see you all! 💛💛

I refreshed this beauty’s look with a root melt, face framing highlights for that , and an edgy layered bob with soft waves to finish. Styled with @unite_hair of course 💛

✨Here are the results to my own transformation! Swipe to see more!

For my own hair, I’ve been into thicker pops of blonde lately with more contrast between my base and the highlights, not “chunky” but also not babylight thin. And I love me some warm, caramel hues 🥰

Have you all been in the mood to switch it up lately? What are your thoughts?

🤰 27 weeks, about 7 months (I think 😂) and feeling pretty good! Our little guy is going to love Christmas lights for sure 🥰🎄
.
✨💛Just a reminder that I will be out on maternity leave February 13th through end of June 2022!
.
I will be sending out another detailed email soon, but I have begun booking tentative appts for my anticipated return date, if you would like to pre-book your appointment for when I return, be sure to contact me to do so prior to January 31, 2022, as I won’t be available for work related calls/messages while out on maternity leave (I anticipate, from what I hear 😂, I’ll be very preoccupied with my little guy, and getting used to being a mama 🥰🤰)
.
💛Thank you all for your incredible support! You all have been making this such a wonderful experience behind the chair with you, and I continue to look forward to seeing you all in my chair over the next couple months before I go out!
.
So grateful 😊💛

💡Ever want to keep some of your favorite blonde hues, but not so much of the upkeep that comes with blonde hair? This service may be for you 💛 I applied a dimensional root melt to darken her roots and maintain her bright blonde pieces throughout her midshafts-ends, this reduces maintenance because you don’t need to retouch your highlights as often, but you still keep your favorite bright blonde pieces, especially around the face.

What do you all think of this transformation❓

📣Clean scalp is healthy scalp!
Yes! You read that right! Shampooing MORE often is BEST for your scalp and hair! Read on to learn why…

💡A few key 🔑 points from this discussion:

🔑 You should arrive for your hair services with a clean scalp (shampooed within 24 hours of your scheduled service) (if I’m not your stylist, ask your stylist what their preference is, we all work differently 🤗)

🔑 A clean scalp is healthy! Shampooing daily/more
often is GOOD💛
🚨 Excessive buildup of oil/debris on the scalp from not shampooing enough is bad for your scalp and hair, and can potentially irritate your hair follicles

🔑 You may be worsening your dandruff if you are skipping too many shampoos

🔑 Having dandruff doesn’t necessarily mean your scalp is dry, it could be the opposite

🔑 Shampooing daily will NOT dry your hair out, as long as you’re using the right shampoo for your hair type, always conditioning afterwards, using it properly, and using the necessary products to keep it hydrated ☝️

“Stepping stone” 🪨 session…
Swipe to see her before pic!
.
This beauty came in with some harsh yellow tones throughout her midshafts to ends, however she had very minimal regrowth at the root from her previous highlight appointment.
.
Solution: A “stepping stone” appointment! This is the phrase I like to use for services that bring people one step closer to her goal!
-I applied a heavy partial balayage and some babylights only at the hairline, processed low and slow and boosted her hair to the vibrant, BRIGHT blonde you see! I didn’t even need to tone it, I just used shampoo and @olaplex , of course 😉

Spiced Cider Blonde 🥰🍁🍂🎃
.
This was my first time seeing this lovely client in about a year! Her hair was almost completely grown out, so it made for a really fun transformation to create!
.
I applied a full balayage to create a deep, rooty melt, with a burst or bright vanilla blonde around the face to contrast with the sweet, warm cidery hues throughout the rest of her look.
.
We also cut off a good 3-4 inches!
.
What do you all think about this blonde hue?
