Best practices for winter care and your hair-

  1. If it’s cold outside, don’t go out with wet hair! While our mothers and grandmothers told us to make sure we bundled up or we’d catch a cold, wet hair and outside is just as bad, except the effects last longer than that particular virus. The science behind this is down to the molecular level. Your hair is almost defenseless when the water in your hair shaft...

Another hair how-to video! People always ask me about my steam curlers, so I thought I would do a video and show you my routine. This whole look takes me under 10 minutes, and anytime you see my hair curled, this is what I do. I dried my hair before curling, but most of the time, I shower the night before and let it dry naturally.

  1. I use Caruso Steam Rollers. You can find them on Amazon. (this is my 3rd set since high school)...

Here’s the deal with a pixie: anyone can have one! But this blog isn’t aimed at talking people into one, it’s for the people who are already diving in but maybe just a little in over their heads. This is also about what to bring to your consultation. If this is all new to you, I’d suggest scheduling a consultation before your appointment. I’ll also break down each section of your head so we can have a meaningful and detailed conversation.
