Professional Skincare vs. Drugstore Brands
Several years ago I compared professional hair products to drugstore brands, and I just wrote a post about pro and generic makeup brands. I don’t write a lot about skincare, but I couldn’t leave it out of the product comparisons series!
Just as I mentioned in the makeup brands post- I haven’t always […]

A few months ago I started taking Sugarbearhair vitamins because I injured my thumbnail and I knew the vitamins would help it grow back faster. I knew they would help my skin and nails, but I wasn’t really thinking about what hair vitamins would […]

Pony-O Hair Accessories
I first saw Pony-O Hair Accessories in an advertisement on Instagram. Of course, I clicked on it! I don’t usually pay attention to ads, but I was very intrigued. I didn’t think I’d actually end up ordering the product, but I did! So here’s my review of Pony-O Hair Accessories…and I didn’t get paid for […]

Dyson Hair Dryer
The Dyson hair dryer was among one of the most requested items by shoppers at Ulta Beauty this year. Of course, people were shopping for makeup and skin care products, but I’m in the salon so I get a lot of questions about hair tools and products.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t women who were stopping by […]

Julep Matte Lip Mousse
So far…Julep Matte Lip Mousse is my absolute favorite matte lip color!
I’ve always been a big fan of lip tints and sheer glosses, but it’s so hard to find something that’s not too shiny/sticky. I know…you’re thinking that lipstick is the answer…but it’s not. I don’t enjoy wearing lipstick(maybe it’s the taste or the […]

Best Waterproof Makeup
Waterproof makeup is hard to find, and that’s probably because there’s no reason why anyone should be wearing makeup to the pool or beach.
There are a lot more options these days, but some of them are pricey!
I suggest using waterproof makeup only when you really need it, and your usual makeup products for […]

Are you looking for the best hairsprays?
Hairspray can make or break a great hair day!
A bad hairspray can do even worse…ruin the blowout that you styled so well.
There are SO many different hairsprays out there, so it can be hard to find the one that’s right for you. I’ve tried them all, and […]
