4 HOLIDAY HAIR STYLES!

160A6070

i’ve been using living proof for several months now and i’ve really noticed a difference in my hair. i started using it at the same time that i cut my hair off which was a much needed refresh and i think the combination of the two really helped my dry hair troubles. i’ve been having more fun playing with different styles and taking a break from my typical top knot. below are four easy hairstyles that you can recreate on your own and that i’m excited about trying out this holiday season!

LIVING PROOF HAIR PT.1

i have been bleaching my hair since the day before my senior prom. my mom tried to do it out of a box, accidentally turned my hair completely orange, and i had it fixed just a few hours before the dance! i’m naturally a blonde, but obviously make it way brighter using toner. because of this, my hair is pretty DRY and coarse. it’s always been kind of my thing to have messed up, textured hair…but as i got older i became interested in having more of a mix of textured and smooth when i wanted to. i had never put too much thought about the brand of shampoo and conditioner i was using…until now.

here’s a bunch of photos that show my hair over the past 10 years or so. i dyed it black when i was 19…angst! and it took quite a while to get back to blonde (it was a mistake) please excuse the random assortment of photos and strange smiles. haha…

i honestly think living proof chose me to be one of their brand ambassadors because i could truly show the difference their products can make on your hair. i was open to it because first of all, their packaging is pretty (and don’t think that’s not important to me!) and i was very interested in finding a solution for my dryness issue.

so i flew to the living proof headquarters in cambridge, ma with 4 other bloggers to get our hair assessed and styled by celebrity hairstylist chris mcmillan (he does jen aniston’s hair and even gave her the famous “rachel” cut!) we also got to see their lab where they do all the hair testing, which was actually very interesting.

chris gave me the breakdown on how to actually take care of my hair and which products would be best for me. the restore shampoo and conditioner and the night cap overnight perfector. so i listened the professional!

i took them home and tried them out for a few weeks. something i really like about the shampoo is that it actually gets sudsy when i use it, instead of immediately absorbing into my hair. this makes me feel like my hair is actually getting clean. the conditioner gives my hair a great silky feeling too. another product i like (considering i admit in the video below that i don’t like to wash my hair that often) is the dry shampoo! it works better than any others that i’ve tried.

isn’t their clean, minimal design nice on their bottles?

and here you can watch a little bit about me from an interview they gave me after my hair was done! hear about my hair routine currently and what i like about living proof products.

next up, i am going to an event in LA with a certain secret celebrity…can you guess who?! fun times ahead.

4 HAIR STYLES UNDER 4 STEPS!

my hair routine is pretty simple, most of the time i like to keep it all natural but i always appreciate the way a different hair style can mix up someone’s look or take a basic outfit and make it a little more glamorous. i asked my friend ashley to come up with four different hair tutorials that could be created in less then four steps. (if i’m gonna do my hair, it’s gotta be easy!) take a peek and let me know if you try one, i’d love to see!

i think my favorite was the knotted ponytail. it’s so easy, it’s laughable.
