American Beauty/Hair by Melissa

From a young age I’ve always been creative. Raised by a family of artists, I was always encouraged to express myself in a creative way - and through the years, my own hair styles have reflected this way of thinking. I believe that no matter how bad things get, the best way to change yourself inside is to change your outside - and a fantastic haircut does just that. It’s no accident that I eventually become a hair stylist. After high school I put my own creative ambitions on hold while I raised my two sons alone. Yet, the desire to work with hair continued to call to me. Finally in 2009, I became a licensed cosmetologist with a concentration in makeup and studio hair styling. I immediately followed my passion through the ins and outs of the beauty industry before discovering my passion as a freelance hair stylist. I've found I really enjoy combining my hair styling skills with formal occasions - from weddings to modern dance performances to photo shoots to burlesque performances. I love ensuring that models, performers, and presenters have a suitable hairstyle before they appear in front of the cameras or an audience. I especially enjoy using my excellent time management skills - knowing how long a subject will take to be made-up and to work quickly and accurately under pressured conditions.

allure.com When heat and humidity strike, the last thing you want to do is spend an eternity styling your hair, only for it to end in the F word: frizz. But that doesn't mean you need to settle for a ho-hum hair day. These ten hairstyles are quick, simple, and not the least bit boring.

[06/15/13]   Heading out to Apple Blossom Plantation with Vamps and Vixens for our Bride Marjorie! Great Day!!!

Love the braids for the summer!
