You don’t know … About Shinola

I Love Vert and Vogue , one of the reasons besides the effortless European style is that they always know something before I do. I don’t give many fashionistas that claim… Maybe my mother in law. 20140625-152048-55248810.jpg
A few weeks ago they introduced me to this beautiful Shinola watch.

20140625-152718-55638104.jpg I am the type of girl who follows trends, but always leans toward classics. As much as I love my Micheal Kors watch, I’m really saving for a vintage Rolex.

Vert and Vogue successfully changed my mind about my Rolex dreams… I now dream about Shinola

This is my Good Morning Hair, last night I went to bed with my hair wet.
I applied a heavy Layer of Living Proof No Frizz Weight a Less Styling spray then squeezed the excess water out with at towel and went to bed. 20140623-083913-31153309.jpg
Using just this one Product I will not only create beautiful touchable waves, but also an ever lasting style even in humidity and rain.

Did I mention I’m in a Hyatt , this is not my horrible lighting choice. I’m spritzing the product all over my hair before I section it.

20140623-084227-31347641.jpg
Using my Favorite Scrunchi I section my hair in medium sized sections to create more realistic waves.

I’m using a picture from a previous blogs , ( when my Husband was around to take the pic)
Notice how I hold the iron down and wrap the hair from roots to ends around the wand.

Spritzing more of the product on each section before I apply heat. It will not only shield my hair from the heat but it will block the humidity to maintain the style all weightlessly … It’s in the name.

One last mist and a light scrunch will fuze the sections together into a moldable , movable style.

Olsen inspired

It is no secret that the Olsen’s are by far my favorite fashionistas! 20140609-005508-3308115.jpg
