Graduated Angled Bob, Disconnected Haircut (Video Hair Tutorial)

Watch my video hair tutorial…..

This is such a fun haircut.  I love these dramatic "Angeled bobs."

This haircut looks cute when you leave it down or if you tuck behind the ear.  It gives you that short haircut without cutting "All" of it off.

Thanks for stopping by!

Halo of Highlights, Grey Blending, Video Hair Tutorial

Watch my Video Hair Tutorial…..

Adding a few highlights around the face can brighten up any hairstyle.  This technique look especially natural, because if you were to get natural highlights from the sun, the sun would highlight around your face as such.

Adding blonde highlights to anyone with grey hair will blend the grey.  The grey is white and it is closer to the color of the new blonde hair then a brown color that would have more contrast with whitish grey.

I used the slicing technique throughout most of the hairstyle except for around the part.  In the part area you really want to weave it, so it doesn't look to stripy or uneven.

Hopefully this is helpful to you:)

Reviews! Schwarzkopf Essensity No-Ammonia Color, Igora, Ion and Meet My New Dog Mimi!

Watch my video review on some of the new products I've been using lately…….

I've been using Schwarzkopf Essensity No-Ammonia permanent color on all my clients with sensitive skin.

They suggest a 2-1 mixing ratio.  2 developer to 1 color mixture.   Their developer/activation lotion comes in different numbers 8, 18, 28, 38.  I use 18 for my grey coverage.

I also use Schwarzkopf Igora permanent color for a lot of my clients still.  Mostly clients with no sensitivity to color. 

I use Ion No-ammonia lightening powder for sensitive clients and/ or a few levels of lift with minimal damage.

I use Schwarzkopf powder bleach for more levels of lift. 

Hope this was helpful to some:)
Take care,

Update: Planter Fasciitis Sugery and Heal Spur Removal After Second Opinion

 "I started cracking up when the nurse put an extra hospital band on my wrist... 'Fall Risk!"

So glad I got a second opinion!  After a week of being on a boot/walking cast waiting for my fractured heal spur to heal, I felt as if something is not right here.  I have been suffering with planter fasciitis for a looooong time.  I just recently found out that I had a heel-bone spur.  Now after falling down the stairs and finding out that there is a fracture in the spur, to me I thought the most logical thing to do is to remove the darn thing and take care of my other foot issues….

So when I called the same Orthopedic Surgeon office that I originally went to, I asked the receptionist, who would be the best doctor there to get a second opinion from or would I be better off going to another office? (They tend to back each other up).  She said that I should see their foot and ankle specialist.  Who knew there was a specialist of the specialists??!!

When he came into the office I explained my years of chronic pain of the planter fasciitis and my recent injury.   Without me needing to prep him at all, he recommended the planter fasciitis relief and spur removal surgery.  Go figure!

I was scared out of my mind going into surgery.  I have never been under full anesthesia before and I was really nervous.  When getting ready and prepping before surgery, as many of you know, they ask you a million questions.  The same ones over and over again.  Like, "What's your name?  What's your birthday?"….. The one that stood out to me though was.. "Have you fallen within the last 6 months?" I replied, "Do you mean within the last 6 hours?" I started cracking up when the nurse put an extra hospital band on my wrist... 'Fall Risk!"

However this surgery has been no piece of cake!  I'm on my 3rd day post surgery and I am at a pain level of 4-5 at this point.  It really hurt the second day most of all though.

I'm so blessed to have the support of my family and friends that have been helping tremendously!   From driving my kids to school and their activities to bringing me and my family hot meals.  It is true it takes a village to raise a child and my family is so fortunate to live in our community.

The recovery time is supposed to be amazingly quick.  I should be in a walking cast by the end of next week.   Then my life can go somewhat back to normal.    In the mean time I can catch up all my social media links that I love to indulge in :)

Thanks for visiting XO!

Cascading French Braid (Video Hair Tutorial)

Watch my Cascading French Braid Hair Tutorial…..

This is a pretty,  yet simple braid that can be worn as a bridal up-do or something more casual.  The trick is to leave some hair out underneath so the braid is able to fall.
