Christine-Cameron-MyStyle-Pill-Lunch Date6

Today’s post features a fairly simple look I wore out to lunch with my Dad the other day. I created this outfit around these leather pants, which are my absolute favorite (I scored them 40 percent off at Nordstrom over Christmas!) and paired them with a striped turtleneck from Forever 21, my Everlane navy leather loafers and a bright red lip, courtesy of L’Oreal Paris’ long lasting lip color in Infallible Red.

It was a typical Seattle spring day, so I wore a mid-weight light wool overcoat from Zara over the top of the outfit along with my J.Crew inifinty scarf, just in case it got a little chilly.

Vidal-Sassoon-Salonist-Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill3

All photos were taken by my lovely friend, Lacy, who patiently helped me document every single step of this process. 

Hey everyone! So, I’ve teamed up with Vidal Sassoon to take on the fun challenge of coloring my hair at home with their new Salonist hair color product. I chose Dark Red Violet 4/46 (eeek, talk about nervous!) but everything in the box provides professional tools (brush and a bowl) to achieve awesome results, so now you can color just like the pros!

The truth of the matter is, I’ve done at home color before and the results have left me with uneven color and eventually very dull looking hair. Unimpressive to say the least. So, over Christmas, I had it done professionally and was really happy with the outcome. It’s been about three months and my little brown roots are starting to show, so this project couldn’t have come at a better time!

My hair is naturally brown, so when it was colored a few months ago, I brightened it up a bit and went with a pretty purply-red. I loved it so much, that I decided to aim for a similar color this time around.

Something to remember when coloring your hair is, in order to achieve color that is full of depths and tones, it’s essential to treat roots and lengths separately since new hair growth and previously colored hair absorb color differently. Coloring also alters the pigment content, changing the hair’s surface structure and making it more porous. So since lengths have been colored up to 20x more than roots, the lengths require less dye.

One of the reasons I decided to give Salonist a try is because it features an innovative 2-step technique that leaves hair seamlessly blended, avoiding streaks and stripes. This was one of my main issues in the past when using at-home color kits. The two-step process brings you vibrant, multi-dimensional hair color with convenience, speed, and accuracy. So, with that said, here is a step-by-step of my experience with the product…

Vidal-Sassoon-Salonist-Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill6

1. First off, make sure to wear the gloves! Then empty tube 1 and bottle 1 together in the Salonist bowl and mix until smooth.

2. Next, use the Salonist brush to apply the color cream to your roots, starting with your hair’s natural part. Continue all the way down the back of your head. Brush the color cream onto your hairline. Part your hair again, ½ -inch below your natural part, and brush color cream onto the roots. Repeat this process as many times as needed to completely cover your roots. Use approximately ¾ of the color cream in the bowl.

Oh my gaaawd, I’m really doing this!

3. Add the VS Serum into the ¼ of color cream still left in the Salonist bowl and mix well.

4. Scoop the mixture out with your hands and blend it throughout the lengths of your hair. Massage the color in all over, even at your roots. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes.

5. Rinse out the color, and wash your hair with a color-safe shampoo. Then apply the included Salonist Color Preserving Conditioner and let it absorb for 2 minutes.

 A few more tips from the experts:

  • The baby hairs around your hairline are weaker and softer and therefore develop faster than the hair around the crown. If you want even hair color, start coloring hair at the crown and then work your way out. Your hairline and bangs should be last. Just remember that application is key, otherwise you’ll be left with patchy hair color.
  • Apply hair color like you’re unraveling or peeling an orange. Start by applying hair color at the crown and then take sections of hair and work clockwise. You’ll want to finish applying hair color around the nape and the hairline since those strands develop faster.
  • To avoid hair color staining your skin, apply some Vaseline around your hairline.

You can get your very own kit of Salonist at Amazon.com or other major mass retailers. Check out VidalSassoon.com for more info!

Long-Lasting-Red-Lipstick-Thumb

For a while now I have really been into red lipstick, but I always struggle with it when it comes to actually wearing it while eating. It’s always coming off on my food, water glass, napkin, you name it. So I decided to film a little video this week to test out my three favorite long lasting red lipsticks (all drugstore brands) to see whether or not they would stay on (or how well) throughout each meal. I wore a different one for breakfast, lunch and dinner and documented the experience – one in particular had impressive staying power!

Rainy Day Inspo

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

I’m currently still in Orcas Island with my family and it’s been pretty rainy and gray outside, which I am of course used to seeing that I am from Seattle. But for fun, I thought I would pull together a quick and stylish outfit to hopefully inspire you during the inevitable upcoming drippy March and April showers. xo

Whats-In-My-Bag-mystylepill copy

Hey everyone! It’s YouTube Tuesday, and this time around I created a little video sharing what exactly is in this big ol’ leather tote of mine. As you all know, I love bags, and have those that I rotate between, but lately I have been reaching for this trusty tote from FashionABLE. I love the color, the wear and how roomy it is. It doesn’t have any compartments so I use two slim clutches to keep things organized.

Seeing that I don’t have a car in the city, it’s important for me to have everything I need when I leave the house in the morning since there is a pretty good chance I might not be back home until the evening. Between meetings, client sessions, press previews and evening events, I’m on the go from morning until night and need to be able to transition seamlessly and stay fresh and comfortable throughout the day. That is where the items above come in.

Style Remix - tweed dress

 

Hey guys, happy Thursday! So today’s post is all about this little tweed dress from J.Crew. I spotted it during my recent sale shopping haul and thought that it would be the perfect dress to style up and show how to wear five different ways. I know many of you have to go into an office and even though I work from home, I will have meetings where I need to look polished and professional, so I thought this dress fit the bill!

If you would like to see the video version of this remix, head on over to my YouTube channel this morning (make sure to subscribe too!) and you’ll get to see all five outfits up close and in action, plus some bonus footage where I introduce my new fur baby, Susan! xoxo

HayleySkype-Style-Edited-3

Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited to share with you a recent project I did with Skype, where I personally styled an editor, Hayley, from SheKnows to help her get ready for a date with her boyfriend. I often use Skype when styling clients that either don’t live here or that just need a quick 15 or 30 minute session, so this was a perfect way to share how this application works so well.

Below are some photos taken at Haley’s apartment – you can see me on her computer screen walking her through the process. :) I wrote a whole article for SheKnows on the experience and how I break down the styling process, which you can read HERE!

But for now, I will give you a quick rundown of how we kicked off the session.

First, she showed me her closet…

Then we discussed what pieces she wanted to start with to try and narrow down the selection a bit.

Fast forward a bit to this skirt, which we ended up creating the final outfit around.

We talked about everything from accessories to hair styles to makeup…

And this was the final look we came up with based on what items she had and loved in her closet! Overall, it was a great session and she felt styled and ready to go out on the town with her boyfriend. Win, win! xo
