Styling your perfect bob.

Here are some tips and tricks for styling a perfect sleek straight polished bob. 

Step one: Be sure not to over wash your hair. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to keep it soft and shiny. 

Step two:  When blow drying, start with your bangs. Use a brush and blow dry the roots from left to right, this will ensure all of your cowlicks lay flat. Use a medium sized round brush with your blow dryer on your lengths and ends to smooth your hair before you flat iron. 

Step three: put a nice light serum through your lengths and ends to protect your hair from the flat iron. Flat iron your hair is small sections. 

Step four:  Use a little bit of hairspray and voila! A perfect Bob.

Tips for taming your curls.

Summer is here again, and while we enjoy the heat that we have been missing all winter, those of us with curly hair know that it can mean humidity and big frizzy hair. Here are a few of my tips for keeping your curls shiny and bouncy. 

1.) Find the right products. 

I have found Aveda’s ‘Be Curly’ product line to be perfect for preventing frizz and defining curls. I recommend ‘Be Curly’ style prep, Curl Enhancer & Curl Enhancing hairspray for an all day hold.

2.) Hydration.

Dry hair is the enemy of your curls. It’s important to not over shampoo. Skip some of your  hair washing days and try using only your conditioner. Your hair will look shiny, healthy and full of bounce. I recommend Aveda ‘Be Curly’ Shampoo and Conditioner.

3.)  Finding the right Stylist. 

Last but not least it’s essential to find the right stylist who understands your curly hair needs. 

Embrace your natural curls this summer, everybody is doing it!
