Met Ball Week: Jaime King

I was with Jaime King the week of the Met Ball for a few different red carpet events. I love how she wanted to change her look for each event! For the Met Ball, I did a sleek straight style with a large under curl at the bottom. With her make up done by Yumi Mori, this look came together flawlessly!

For her appearance at the Elle Editor in Chief 15th anniversary party, I did this high pony tail! I gave her a roller set using the Beachwaver S1, and then combed it up to this pony tail.

For her appearance at the American Express Plenti Together red carpet, I styled her hair in this loose ponytail and trimmed her bangs for a fresh look!

 


 
 

Glamour.com: Womans Feature

So happy Glamour.com did an article on how the beauty industry has been long dominated by men! Some of us barely realize it, but for a field desired for women, there traditionally were very few brands run by women. I'm so happy to be apart of this growing field, and to be featured in this article! To read the entire article, click here!

Julia Telles: Golden Globes 2015

The Golden Globes are always a glamorous affair with many different hair styles. This year I had the pleasure of working with Julia Telles, for her look I pulled inspiration from Old Hollywood Glam.

To achieve the glam waves:
1. Take a one inch section of hair and use your Beachwaver for the curls.
2. Roll each section up and pin in place.
3. Repeat until all of your hair is set.
4. After letting the curls set and cool, spray flexible hairspray on the On Set Styling Brush and brush into an S shape.
5. Style smoothly and tuck one side behind the ear for the finishing touch. 

Julia looked stunning in her Carmen Marc Valvo gown for the awards ceremony. Congratulations to the cast of The Affair on their wins of the night! 

Another great trip full of memories and fabulous hairstyles, until next time!
