Beauty Brands: Hair Cut + Conditioning

I just love Beauty Brands Salon. Julie takes care of me and my hair while I’m there, and I always leave refreshed and looking/feeling great!

Yesterday was my trunk show for my men’s clothing line, Stag Harbor. I knew I wanted to get my hair done, and I knew Julie would do a great job. I also needed a hair cut, because my hair was getting a little too long and it was taking me forever to blow dry it!

After my deep conditioning treatment (which was awesome and only took about 10 minutes), I asked Julie to cut 3 inches off my hair. It seemed dramatic, but it was much need and I was still able to put my hair up in a ponytail to hit the gym. Julie made it look phenomenal, and then she curled it up for my big evening ahead.

Y’all, if you’re looking to get your hair done for the Holidays, Holiday Parties, etc- you should go Beauty Brands. The people are so friendly, and there are only 5 chairs so the experience is really imitate and the conversations are discreet.

For those of you that know me, you know that my hair is usually a hot mess. During the winter, it’s nearly impossible to style without the help of the masters at DryBar or Parlor KC. In the summer, I’m usually in the pool or working out, so I don’t bother styling it at all. Insert: fatboy. Fatboy Hair’s “Tough Guy Water Wax” (black tub) is what keeps the Kardashian’s signature low bun or ponytail so sleek! This stuff is a staple when it comes to keeping up with the Kardashians. But, what is in the white tub you might ask? Fatboy Hair’s Sea Salt Pomade, and by adding this great “just out of the sea” texture, it keeps this beach wavin’ hair of mine going strong ALL DAY LONG. Bonus: It’s made with Shea Butter and Coconut oil to nourish the hair and smell great as well. I am so impressed with both products and highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of a little extra styling when it comes to your hair.

Problem: Frizzy Hair

I received this question on my blog a couple months ago, and I found it hilarious because, as a girl who doesn’t blow dry my hair when I’m not going somewhere (re: hot bohemian tangled mess), I understand the struggles of the ultimate frizzy hair blowout when I do. I frequent Parlor KC a lot because they always seem to be able to tame my mane into something presentable, but when I just don’t have the time, I use one of three products that seemed to have taken the frustration out of the frizz.

The question:

Q: When I blow-dry my hair it ends up looking frizzy. What is a tip or product you use to avoid this? You hair always looks so good in photos. I use a normal hair dryer and a light serum that I use when my hair is damp.

The Answer:

A: The best blow-dry in my opinion involves little or no blow dryer. First go in with a frizz-defending serum like John Frieda Frizz-Ease. Then let you hair air-dry almost all the way. (If you’re in a hurry (who isn’t these days?, use a blow dryer, but don’t worry so much about styling. Just get it almost-dry.) Then use either a flat iron, a large-barrel curling iron or both. The iron (or irons) will give you the blow-dry polish you’re looking for without the extra frizz, not to mention all the elbow grease a good blow-dry takes.
