ARCHIVE: Hair

I’m so excited to finally be able to announce my partnership with Sassoon as a Sassoon Style Influencer! I’ve been working with the brand for the past couple months now and have been in and out of the salon working working with the Color Director, Valencia to create the perfect shade of blonde and the Senior Creative Director, Elaine, to shape and cut my hair to just the right length.

Last month, my sweet friend Krystal came into the salon with me one afternoon and we selected hairstyles off of their Blow & Style menu. The team then created a fun video of our time there and some fun behind the scenes to show you how it’s done. I hope you guys enjoy!

Whenever I go into a salon to get my hair done, the stylist always comments on the fact that I have fine hair but a ton of it, which can be great because with the right product they can create a ton of volume and I can keep my hair styled without it falling flat in five minutes. But like I said, it all depends what product I use. The problem usually begins with my shampoo and conditioner, since anything too heavy immediately takes the “umph” out of my hair…

My hair before using Drybar’s Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam. Slightly flat with a hint of oil, some noticeable separation and in desperate need of a pick me up!

I love wearing my hair both straight and curly, so I wanted to show you guys that you can easily use this product on either kind of style without messing it up. Because I have fine hair, but a lot of it, I try not to wash my hair everyday because otherwise it can start to look limp and flat if it’s too “clean.” With that said dry shampoo has become my best friend – I rely on it to give my hair texture and keep it looking fresh. I promise, if you were to take a look into my bathroom cabinet, you would find a million bottles of different dry shampoos because I always love trying out different kinds to see which is my favorite. Case in point, I was very excited to partner with Drybar and try out their new Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam since I am already a fan of their shops and other products! I love that Detox Whipped adds lift and body to my hair no matter if I’ve styled it curly or straight.

Here we go!

You just need a small amount – a little goes a long way! First shake it well. Then dispense a small amount into your palm and rub your hands together. Use your fingers to apply to the roots and massage gently until the foam disappears completely. 

It’s nuts because it feels like you are putting mousse into your hair and are sure it’s going to mess up whatever hair style you have at the moment, but it doesn’t! In fact, it does the opposite and instead, the foam absorbs excess oils, leaving your hair feeling fresh and clean with no stickiness or crunchiness. As much as I have loved my traditional dry shampoo, I will say, I’m a Detox Whipped convert! I’m obsessed with how there is no powdery residue or inhalation of product when spraying it into my hair. Plus the Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam has a lovely fragrance, so your hair will smell great, just like it was freshly washed even if it’s been a few days. It can be your little secret!

Et voila! The finished look having used the product on both curly and straight hair! I can see such a visible difference in the volume and lift with the curls, and the clean and sleek look with the straight hair. What do you guys think? Are you dry shampoo fans? Would you try Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam? After testing it out and then using it almost everyday for about a week and a half, I can say that I highly recommend it! xo

Christine Cameron of My Style Pill on going from a redhead to a blonde15It’s been quite the journey (over a year in a fact) from when I first decided to dye my hair a raspberry red color for a collaboration with L’Oreal (watch the YouTube video here) to then deciding to become a full-fledged blonde. But let’s back up a bit and start from the beginning…

I plan on writing a longer post about my total hair transformation from having raspberry red hair to being bright blonde very soon, but for now I just wanted to share these two photos from the past two days.

The top photo is my hair on Tuesday before heading to Arrojo to see my colorist Francesca. My roots were growing out and I felt like the blonde was looking a little brassy, so I wanted to get a refresh. We decided to do more highlights and tone it so that the blonde was on the cooler side, but still maintain some interesting dimension by working in my natural light brown throughout the highlights. She worked her magic to create the final product below, which was taken yesterday, and I am so happy with how my hair turned out! I highly recommend you guys going to see Francesca at the Williamsburg location if you live locally – she’s pretty freaking awesome.

These photos make me nostalgic for New Orleans and warm weather. When I was there during Fashion Week last month, I lived in skirts and dresses and wore my hair wavy almost every day. The best part was, it took me about five minutes to create this hair style because of Paul Mitchell’s Leave in Treatment, which gives my normally fine hair more texture. Once my hair air dried, I used a curling iron to polish up a few random pieces to give my hair a bit of bounce. But that was it! So, now I want to ask you guys. What do you all do to achieve your perfect wavy hair look? I would love to hear and you can share your Curl Confessions here, just don’t forget to use the hashtag #CurlConfession and upload a photo! Can’t wait to see! xo

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had wavy/curly hair. Sometimes unruly, (read, mostly unruly) and other times sultry and cute. But, I can say as an official adult, I have embraced my hair for what it is – sometimes predictable, other times, not so much, but regardless I always love a good wavy look. So, when Paul Mitchell approached me about being involved in their campaign called The Truth About Curls, which is all about the relationship that people have with their curly hair, I automatically said yes! For this post I used Paul Mitchell’s Twirl Around as my main product. But with my hair being so short now, I knew that for a more curl-defined look, I wanted to let my hair air-dry – letting it take it’s natural state – then use my curling iron to define pieces here and there, creating a sleeker, curly-haired-do. The product acted as an amazing placeholder for my curls, letting me feel cute and fun with my new look.
