The Glossy Box Experience

On the first of every month I am going to do a product review. Recently I signed up for "Glossy Box" and already love it. Never heard of it? No worries. Basically, once you sign up it's $20 a month and samples show up at your door. Like a present to yourself! Go here to find out more

I always get questions about my hair so I thought how perfect to do a hair product review! In my first box I got five products, one of which is the "Rich" shampoo! I will tell you having worked in salons and using lots of different ones, I have never been so blown away by a shampoo! I will absolutely be making this my go to. It's consistency is so thick which usually that means that it doesn't lather much, not true with "Rich" shampoo, it worked great and when I ran a comb through my wet hair it felt more conditioned than I could believe! I can't wait to buy the conditioner.

Next up, (not from the box) is one of my favorite products is "It's a 10". I use this when I am drying my hair. I dry it until it is damp and then I put a little bit of this on and then dry the rest. I have used many of their different products and love them all. They also have a great Hair Mask and Conditioning Spray.

You always need a finishing touch right? Well this is mine. Rusk Thermal Spray is perfect to protect you hair when styling it. I spray it right before curling or flat ironing and it adds so much shine. 


Done Up

Some trends turn into styles that stay and others just start getting on your nerves after a while. The sock bun? On my nerves. I'm just a little sick of seeing it. That being said, I still like a top knot of sorts especially when my hair is looking a little blah. 


So all you need to do is put your hair in a pony, take pieces and tease them, then take turns on each side and pin them behind with Bobbi pins. It's a messier look than the sock bun but it's a nice change. 


Hitting The Ground Running

Welcome to one of the busiest weekends that I've experienced in quite some time. A nonstop weekend full of hair, makeup, weddings, and a boudoir shoot. I love getting to be a part of such a special day.  Even though this weekend was more work than play, it was a blast! The wedding we had the privilege of photographing this weekend was so beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a nicer bridal party. 

Sunday morning, I was at it again, doing hair, and airbrushing a beautiful bride in Leachburg. It may have been about an hour and a half to get there but what's better than jamming to some of your favorite music with the top down? 

Without taking a second to breathe, had a trial run with an August bride, followed then by a Boudoir shoot. 

I've always been a fan of hats, good thing I wear a lot of them!

Have an event coming up? Look like you just stepped off the beach by mixing liquid bronzer with a firming body cream, then massage it into your arms. It'll temporarily tighten your skin and give it a sunkissed glow.


Until next time...
