I feel like my life has been a little cray-cray lately. And not in a bad way, just in a really busy, can’t slow down kind of way. I like it. I would rather be busy than bored, although my husband is the opposite. Opposites attract, right? Well, so far it’s worked for us.
He just got back from France a week ago. Gosh, I can’t believe it’s only been a week!! I had the VIP Land of Nod party Thursday – the day after my husband got home, then I had to work a wedding in Malibu, and immediately drive down to San Diego for a wedding reception for my cousin. The Monday we spent in downtown LA with my other cousins who I adore (and so do the kids). Wednesday was spent at the beach with a dear friend from college who visiting and yesterday was work catch up & I didn’t leave the house. PHEW!
Today I am still in my sweats, although I have to get dressed at some point because I need to get some stuff done. Today is day 3 of my 7×7 challenge. Are you joining us next week?
I do have a hair tutorial for you all! I made it while I was still in France, so it’s a little old, but is pretty all the same! It’s easy, like most of mine are, and perfect for the summer months. If you like it, feel free to pin & share, I always like that!
So like I mentioned, it’s easy. I show you some products in the video that I used and I’m going to link to them here. I am adding a few because I have recently acquired them and they are fab-u-lous.
If you want to dry your hair, always start with a root lifting spray. I have been using Root Pump by Big Sexy Hair and really like it. Previously I used Aquage which is also very good, just harder to find in stores. I really feel like these are a must have when styling your hair. It’s just hard to get the tease to stay & the style to work right without them.
I also have been using Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Gel. I’m obsessed. I already have thick hair but this just add so much volume, it’s insane. I recommend it to all my brides I style and use it when I blow dry. Even if I’m not doing a completely blow dry, I still use it because it helps with styling.
In this video I use dry shampoo at the roots to help the tease stay. It’s a nice little trick. I wouldn’t recommend the one I was using in the video, but Rockaholic has a good one I use on clients.
Lastly — but most certainly not least! — would be hairspray. It’s perfect for any look and a must have. My current favorite is Redken Control Addict 28. It smells nice and has an amazing hold. My second favorite is Kenra 25. It has an amazing hold but doesn’t smell as nice. So either is good, I guess it’s just a preference!
Wow, that’s a lot of info! I just really believe that half the work for creating a style is in the products you use. So get one or a few of these and give them a try! Maybe you’ll see they’re all the difference.
I hope you like this style & are able to give it a try! Thanks for watching & reading and I’ll see ya soon.
Have a great day!
