It's Thursday, so it's only appropriate for this beachwave #tbt! Some of the most famous beachwaves ever were on Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon. Beauty Banter did an article of how to recreate this look this summer and that included using the Beachwaver S1. This feature offers great tips and tricks for all different textures of hair so click here to read the full article!



Brides Magazine: Bridal Braids

I had the pleasure of taking over Brides Magazines Instagram last week! They gave me the task of coming up with 6 different Bridal Braids with how to videos. It was so fun coming up with the different braids and accessorizing them to be wedding day ready! Thank you to everyone for your amazing feedback on these different bridal looks!


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!
 Womans Feature

So happy 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!
