Fade. Ask for it, Dudes.

Seriously Dudes.
I love me a perfectly blended fade.
Nothing is more delicious than a crisp neck line, and nothing grows out easier and better looking than a haircut with a faded neckline.

I can't tell you how often I find myself clawing my eyes out when I am stuck standing behind a man who's stylist has neglected such a crucial part of the entire haircut!

Alot of guys don't realize what a difference it makes to even have your hair cut nice and tight around the perimeter of their head.
But I promise you, when they have had it, they will never go back to the
Chia-head look EVER again.

Simply ask your stylist to make it nice and tight around your neckline (especially) Preferably, without holes. This is a test for your stylist, if she can't do this, she/he is NO good. Time to find a new stylist.
Good Luck Boys!


Shielo Hydrate Product Review

This past weekend I had the opportunity to try out a new product line, called Shielo
I absolutely LOVE trying out new products. Being a hairstylist gives me maybe a higher expectation when I try new things, which can and can't be great when doing reviews.

I was given the option of Color, Hydrate or Volumizing shampoo and conditioner.

In the past 6 months, my hair has been ombre'd,tinted darker, then bleach washed lighter, this being said- I need something moisurizing and repairative( if possible) to protect my hair and keep it healthy.

I tried the Hydrating line.

The Shampoo and Conditioner smell LOVELY.
I mean, Delicious. You could eat it up!

I loved that the product is produced in the states. I also love that  Shielo doesn't pack their product with synthetic pesticides or chemicals, I know my hair is in good hands with this knowledge.

When I first washed my hair with the shampoo I couldn't get over how bubbly it was,wierd right? Of all the things to notice! It was incredibly Suds-y!
 Once I rinsed, I thought. 'Uh-oh'. I thought my hair felt a little too clean, which can lead to sometimes tangly and terrible dry feeling hair.
((believe it or not))

But after leaving the Hydrate Vibrancy Conditioner for a couple of minutes (as suggested)
 I was so pleased!
My hair felt like BUTTER. I mean, my hair really did feel conditioned. I was able to comb through it easily (even after previous color jobs and damaged ends)

My hair felt really good.
I was able to round brush it, curl it and set it and it looked great the whole day.

Overall, I liked this product. I am grateful to have been able to try it out.

My only complaint is that I wish the Shampoo was as moisturizing as the conditioner.
I am interested in trying out their other products!

Below Deck

If you know me well, you know that I NEVER, and I mean
wear nailpolish, let alone purchase nail polish.
Yesterday,I turned a new leaf.
Every since having a baby- I have been embracing my 'womanhood'
and finding beauty in all things feminine.
I have found a new love for earrings,hair irons,floppy hats,COLOR,and now, Nail polish.

As I stood in front of the lovely array of colors, I thought to myself.. "I want the ugliest color of them all."
Because those always look the coolest.

I purchased, Below Deck- By China Glaze.
It's gorgeous. I love how monotone it is.
It's like a silent beauty of the bunch.

Its almost gray-almost brown- and almost purple.
Like, it can't make up its polish-mind, or something?
Anyways. I Love It!

(While my baby took a little nap, I swiped it on and hoped he wouldn't wake until they were dry.)
