Home Inspiration


I have been addicted to Annie Sloans Chalk Paints lately!
 Chalk paint is not chalkboard paint. It is a velvety smooth, matte finish paint that is easy to use with just about no priming! This stuff is amazing which is why I have gone a little crazy and painted Rainey's great grandma's table and old dresser. I used Old White for the table and for the dresser Paris Gray. I love how a little paint can completely transform the look of the furniture and make it new again.
I have more home decor ideas on my pinterest page for the home.

 Here is a little peak into a few little things I have been using to decorate our new place.. 
Thanks to Jane I now have this classy monogramed initial from |Unfinished Wood
It came plain wood so I could paint it whatever color I wanted and i'm loving how the gold spray paint turned out!
Blue bonnets and daffodils are blooming all around me and the sun has been shining bright! 
I love springtime in Texas!!
Have a fabulous Tuesday!

ABS Chicago first look

Here is a little peak from my iPhone from the ABS hair show in Chicago!
It was such a dream being apart of the Fave 4 team as they launched their new hair products for the first time. I was the stylist and makeup artist and helped create four different looks inspired by the four different hairsprays.

Spring Hair Inspirations

Its time to freshin up your look for spring! A new season means new you so yes it is time to change up that color, yes natural is still key, and yes ombre and balayage is definitely in. For brunette’s caramel’s and light mocha’s are definitely in, for blonde’s try staying around sandy, wheat and honey colors. For red heads, coppers and strawberry blonde are pretty. Below I am sharing a few spring transformations I have done and my picks for Spring hair colors for 2014!
Kasha
Kasha wanted to have a more vibrant color to give some depth to her all over yellow blond hair. She is ine busy lady so she wanted a color closer to her natural with less maintenance. That is why I decided to give her a balayage.

What I did: Her natual color is a level 7/8 so on top I used 8nw redken color gels with 10 volume and applied it to the roots and midshaft. I weaved every few sections of hair and applied 20 volume redken lightner through the middle to end.When it was time to wash out, I emulsified the root color throughout the whole head to give it that gradual in between color and a more golden result!
Results: We loved that this color made Kasha look so much older! It will be a very classy do for all the weddings she will be in in the upcoming months! It was such a nice change because she was able to keep it light but add a little dimension to the color before.
 Paige
Paige wanted to be a white all over blond ashy color. It was her first time trying eyelash extensions and wanted them to be very natural with a little bit of a cat eye look on the edges.
What I did: I used redken lightner 30 volume. I did a very tight weave on the top half of her hair and then added a few highlights underneath to make it brighter. When it was time to wash out, used a 9v+ 9b shades eq toner to give it that ashy tone. I recommended Shimmer Lights purple shampoo from Sallys Beauty to keep that brght blond look! For her eyelashes, we used size 11 and 12 in the corner and middle and then 13 on the edges.
Results: This color gives her fun bright look for spring that worked great with her skin tone. The contranst of the full eylash extensions and the white blond hair is amazing!! 
Spring Color Inspirations..

Sneak Peak...


Since I have moved to Dallas I have met SO many people and everyone has been so nice and helpful as I begin my career here. After meeting with a client, I was given the opportunity to tour with the Fave 4 team to be their stylist and makeup artist for the ABS hair show in Chicago. This was such a dream! I have always wanted to get into production work and am so excited/nervous for the hair show! The show is this weekend so I have been busy busy shopping for the four different looks from the Fave 4 line of hairsprays. Texture Takeover, Flex Reflect ,Workable Wear, and Style Stay all have such unique looks and colors it was exciting styling different outfits and can't wait to put it all together on the models. I have loved getting to know Dallas shopping too! Too amazing!!!

Half-updo Tutorial +Fave 4

               
 
Step 1. Start with your hair down and loosly curled. Make sure to grab your favorite headband and Fave 4 Flex Reflex hairspray.
Step 2. Start at your crown and section off a one inch section.
Step 3. With your teasing comb, tease three one inch sections and lightly brush out to add some volume.
      Step 4. Put a pretty headband of your choice on top of your head like a crown. (Mine is from Icing)
Step 5. Starting on the side, tuck hair back into the headband.
Step 6. Grab the half of the rest of your hair and start tucking all the way around the head.
Step 7. After all your hair is tucked in, pull out hair to create a more messy look.
 Step 8. Spray your hair with Flex Reflect hairspray to give it a weightless flowy hold. (This stuff smells soo amazing too!)
Pull out a few pieces around the face and toss on a pretty dress of flowy top to complete the look!
Enjoy!!
