No filter needed. Achieved this cool balayage with @redken 10vv glossed over a foiliage with S waves styled with my @amika antidote silk wrapped styler. This flat iron is a super effective way of getting that cool girl loose feel while protecting the hair after a lightening service. It’s silk wrapped up plates add a barrier of protection that lets me feel confident styling and infusing moisture and protecting the freshly lightened hair. Want to see more of this low profile wavy style from our brand new @amikapro Texture class ? A tutorial?

Summer is almost over. Who is ready to transition those sun lightened locks into the juicy, rich tones of fall? #throwbackthursday to this simple bun style from way back ! Shine and flyaway control with @amika haute mess texture gloss which gives the hair soft & sleek hold without the crunch factor. Available at @saloncentric . 🌹

Cut & Styled this shag cut on a hair babe. To finish the cut with some effortless volume and texture, we layered @amika Bombshell Blowout Spray and a little Haute Mess Texture gloss. Using a quarter sized amount , I squeezed the haute mess into her damp ( towel dried ) hair and then dried her hair in the fringe and Mohawk section using a diffuser on high heat and low airflow settings. Then I used a 1” ceramic round brush and my dryer on high heat to create a few twisted pieces in the face framing and perimeter of her hair & let cool before I shook the style out - incorporating a few sprays of my favorite texture product @amika @amikapro Vandal Spray Volume Powder. This leaves her hair fuss free, manageable, and touchable so she can rework her texture and get her hands in it whenever she wants!

Loving the vibrant red tones of this collaboration. I used a combination of @amika haute mess texture gloss & heist molding blend to get the sleek finish in her hair and then layered figure 8 braids to construct her tall, graphic buns.

But can your space buns do this? These Three strand Infinity braids were styled with @amika Got Grit Dry Texture Paste. I love this product as a braiding aid because it adds grit & texture while performing as a dry shampoo, absorbing excess oil from the hair. It has Zeolite which carries a negative charge and allows the hair to sit/ stack on itself for workable, touchable volume that won’t deflate. We added this braid to our @amikapro Viral Braids class & I can’t wait to share it with everyone. 💕

Woke up still geeked out about this. I’m not surprised very often. I’m a control freak and a planner ( the antithesis of laid back 😂)- so when I saw my name pop up while I was laying in bed watching the inspiring folks getting nominated, I was absolutely shook. 😂I’m so happy to get to experience this show with all of the talented stylists nominated in different categories and of course with my @amika fam going. 💗 This image would not have been possible without all of the talent behind it!

For me, there are few things better suited for the heat of summer than an effortless, textured pony. I styled this one on @sirenethereal using @amika Un.done Matte texture spray throughout on 1 inch marcel waves that were brushed thoroughly. I then went back in while twisting organic sections of her hair and used Fluxus Touchable hold hairspray and sprayed pieces for added definition and texture as well as staying power.

Some behind the scenes photos of @sirenethereal for a Artemis inspired shoot yesterday. I styled this twisted & textured updo on her using @amika vandal volume spray powder and Un.done matte texture spray for grip and tousled effect without being stiff. Can’t wait to show you the final images!

LISTEN UP FOLKS. Here are some Hair tips for protecting your hair in the summer! ( Photo of my extremely beautiful Balayage client @cholokay doing all of the smart hair things 😉 ) ⠀ In the summer our hair takes a BEATING from the elements and our social calendar. Everything from the brutal sun with its color fading and damaging UV rays to the chemicals in the water at your favorite pool party- takes its toll on your hair. A few tips to keep your color fresh and locks in tip top shape? ⠀ 1) use a weekly mask to treat locks deprived of moisture. I like The Kure from @Amika because it also offers nutrients that fortify my strands while moisturizing.⠀ 2) WEAR A HAT. This is great for your face as well. The suns powerful rays can cause a whole variety of problems not limited to uneven pigmentation in your skin and color rapidly fading in your hair. Have fun in the sun but the smart way. ☀️ 3) Soak & Braid. I get it, sometimes you’ve gotta get your head in. If this sounds like you, wet your hair in clean water prior to heading to the pool or beach. Since it is saturated , it is less likely to absorb the harmful salts and chemicals. Bonus points- if you wet your hair with a mixture of water and a fortifying leave in treatment ( @Amika First Base) and then braid it in a protective style which prevents snagging/tangling & looks stylishly fresh. 🍋 💦
