Modern Day Bride

Around a month or two ago I played Pravana bride to help give professional hairstylists tips on how to make the perfect bridal hair for any dream wedding. As we've been seeing how coloring your hair fun colors like the lavender hair that I just recently did is such a trend, many people are in fear to take the color plunge (as I was with the day we did this photo shoot). So the fabulous Pravana experts put together a tutorial on how to get the perfect "modern day bride" look (purple hair and all) with extensions! The two step process showed how to create the most beautiful updo for the wedding ceremony (that's actually all looped and tied together with just a needle and a piece of string). And then when it's time for the reception and you're looking to throw your hair down, with this hairstyle, you're able to just take out the string and vaw-lah, you've got the perfect luscious curls to dance the night away! Below's a little snippet video as well as some pics from both looks from my day as Pravana bride.

Beach Bum

beach attire Is it cliche that when I think of summer I think of the beach? I think of sunny and perfect days just relaxing and getting a good tan, and then I think of the days that turn into nights of bonfires with friends while making smores. And with that, you need the most perfect beach outfit which was what inspired the shoot from today. The beautifully colored knitted sweater was instantly paired with this perfectly matching pair of turquoise shorts and white gladiator sandals which made for the most perfect beach-bonfire outfit. Totally channeling my inner 70's girl in this shoot with my circle frame glasses, I don't think I could be anymore ready to be a summer beach bum.

Purple Hair Don't Care

For those who follow me on Instagram, you have seen that I have made a little big subtle change to my hair... and that's in the form of purple. It seems like in the past year or so we've come to see some crazy, fun, and fierce hair colorings take over the fashion world with people like Chloe Norgaard and Kelly Osbourne making neons and pastels not only fun and acceptable, but more so of a standard in hair. I've been dying to switch my hair game up for quite some time (coming from the girl who thought an ombre was extravagant), but had been nervous to take the plunge. Experimenting with hair chalk here and there to see how I'd feel about doing a little colored action, I instantly fell in love and knew I wanted to make it a grander and more permanent ordeal in my life. And that's when I found out about Pravana and their magical hair products. Just in time to pair perfectly with Coachella that was at that point right around the corner, I met up with hair colorist mastermind and extraordinaire Danny Moon (who's responsible for Nicole Richie's colored number) at Andy LeCompte Salon who Pravana Purple'd me up with this hair that has made me fall in love every time I look at it. True life: I may now be addicted to coloring my hair fun colors forever moving forward. Can you blame a girl when it looks like this?
