WHCD: Bethany Mota

I did a braided updo on Bethany Mota for the White House Correspondents Dinner. I started this look by using my Ceramic Styling Iron to make c-shaped waves in her hair. Then I did two french braids on the bottom section of hair. I secured the top section using a Wrap Up Bun and pinned the braids around the bun. She rocked this look!


WHCD: Sophie Turner

I had the pleasure of styling the stunning Sophie Turner for the White House Correspondents Dinner this past weekend in DC! For her look, I used my ceramic styling iron to make her hair sleek and smoothe. I then put her hair half up in two clear elastics, did two fishtail braids and knotted them around the elastics! She looked gorgeous!


Bethany Mota: Glam Beachwaves

I styled the beautiful Bethany Mota in DC this past weekend! We did these classic vintage waves by holding the Beachwaver Pro Vertical, spraying Aussie Sprunch Hair Spray on my On Set Styling Brush and gently brushing out the curls.


Fashion Times: Braid Feature

Thank you Fashion Times for this feature on this crown braid I did on Anna Chlumsky! When prepping her for her red carpet event, she told me that she had to go perform in her Broadway Show, "Living on Love", where she would need to wear a wig. So I decided to do this fashionable yet practical crown braid so that she could easily get her wig on for show time! To learn how to do this look yourself, click here!


Ashley Benson: Upfronts Event

I styled Ashley Benson for ABC's Upfronts Event this past week. I gave her this sleek wave by using my ceramic styling iron and beachwaver together! It's always a joy to style this beauty!


Bobbie's Buzz: Favorite Finds!

Wrap Up
"This is a must-have tool for a fun, temporary hair transformation. Slip the end of your hair through the opening in the tool and roll it up to create the illusion of a short, faux bob. Simply secure in place by turning the edges inward." 

Beachwaver Pro
"This miracle tool will create loose, beach-y waves with the touch of a button — so of course we had to test it out in the Bahamas! Simply clip a lock of hair onto the barrel like you would a normal curler and let the waver do all the work. It automatically rotates and gently twirls your tresses into perfect, soft spirals. "


MBFW: Ashley Benson Beachwaved Lob

I absolutely love using the Beachwaver S1 on short hair! It adds a new element to the short style that gives it great dimension. I styled Ashley Benson's lob for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York this past week. The textured waves looked great with her awesome hair cut!
