Dip.&.Dye.

All I want to do is Dip and Dye you.

Seriously.
It is all I want to do.

If my hair was blonde, you better believe I would be rocking this.

I LOVE it!

The pinks, the lavenders, the blues, the grays, the yellows, the oranges... and every other color in the rainbow!

But, I do have to say. This look can go very wrong.

and I mean VERY wrong.

but, If you are up for a fun new look,Maybe this is for you!

Long.Hair.

I love long hair. Oh! I love long hair!
BUT!
Did you know just how painfully hard it is to get real, natural volume out of hair past your collarbone?
Oh, it is.
Lemme tell you, It takes dirt. It takes combs. It takes brushes. It takes dirt. and it takes work.
It doesn't come naturally to most people- and if it does, well. I hate you..  (really.I don't. but I have some serious hair envy, in a real bad way)
Long hair with long layers doesn't always give you the volume you crave (But is usually how long hair is cut, because it is a safe 'go to' request because of the fear that your stylist may cut too much off your locks (Who does that?--snicker---).
It will most likely take shorter layers throughout your haircut to achieve more volume.
Bangs are a beautiful option to make boring long hair suddenly interesting and give you an entirely new look. I LOVE bangs!

Color your hair! Add light around your face to soften your look, or dimension through your ends to create a fuller more textured appearance. Color will add interest and different light to your long hair (you have probably been more focused on growing out that hair than actually taking care of it... am I right? or am I right? So- Don't forget to hydrate and treat your hair)

Buy some Hats!! Hats are the cutest right now!
Buy new styling tools! There are amazing curling irons/wands/brushes/waveirons/hotroller sets everywhere I turn!
 If you are giong to wear your hair long, you need to take the time to style it and appreciate it, otherwise do yourself a favor and chop it off! *biting fingernails..*
It's inevitable that your long.long hair will have bad.bad. hair days once in a while, but those are the days you should (lock yourself in your house) get creative and give yourself a braid,fishtail,updo, or high bun!

If what you have just isn't working,

 Tim Gunn would say
"Make it work"

Ambiance Volumizing Dry Shampoo

I am so excited that I was asked to review Ambiance Volumizing Dry Shampoo. You may already know that I love dirty hair, but you may also know that I can smell a dirty head from a mile away....
But this! This smells so clean AND fresh!
I have tried a number of other dry shampoos and they were all super messy, heavy and usually didn't feel like it did anything.

My gorgeous sister couldn't wait to try it! She applied it through the front and top of her hair where she is naturally a little more oily and the powder almost sucked up all the oils, leaving her hair looking fresh and voluminous.

This product is also 100% Natural and there is no need for water! YAY!
It comes in Gray, Blonde,Brunette,Black and Red- so EVERYONE can use it!
It is applied with its soft applicator brush and it blends softly and not cakey or chalky in the hair.
It is also fits perfectly in your purse!

You can purchase your very own dry shampoo here!

Catherine


I love it when I am contacted to do a cyber consult, I love it even MORE when I am actually able to do their hair!
Catherine sent me a photo of her (then) ho-hum, shapless (sorry Catherine)
hair and I knew right away that this girl needed something short and (almost) edgy!
I sent her a couple photos of short hair that would flatter her face shape and she came back with
this Victoria Beckham short cut, which I have ALWAYS loved.

I explained to her that although Victoria Beckham's version has extension pieces laying throughout the front bang section (see for yourself) Hers will be just as cute and I will allow hers to lay a little more naturally for easy maintenance and regrowth.

We were both giddy with excitement thw whole cutting process.
I love doing hair, have I mentioned that?
She was beyond adorable and these pictures don't do justice!



Here she is, the new Catherine H.!

Is it time for you to get a new look?

Contact me for a Cyber Consult, and we can find a new look for you!

50's Inspired.

Have you ever watched a movie and thought, "wow, I want my hair to look like that..."

Yea..So have I!

Guess what- I experimented on myself this weekend and my hair turned out pretty darn close.

It is so fun to be able to try out new things with your hair.
 I think this is the easiest way to keep yourself from getting bored of your hair and this way, you are a lot less likely to do something impulsive--   That you could potentially regret later.

Pull out those hot rollers, curling irons and hair clips ya'll!
Get Inspired!

There is just something about this look that has me totally smitten.
I love it.
I love how unexpected these bangs are off the length of her hair.
 It is so imperfectly perfect!
