This guy is unstoppable, and unbelievably fashionable. Most people think I dress him. That couldn’t be further from the truth. He is usually dressing me. It’s always a simple nod and ” babe, your trying to hard!” He knows how to get the best out of me.

I like to add to his closet so he always has the chance to make interesting choices! Found a rad Instagram for custom shirts and Mens Fashion!

Selfie inspired : a manifesto

Last night I found my self uninspired… I purchased a brand new bag, and felt like nothing in my closet was good enough! 20140519-110313-39793234.jpg
So I poked through My Pinterest

Straight don’t Bake

I’m a hair stylist by trade; I have tried every-way to not make this a hair blog… But I’m really tired of ladies with baked ends!

20140502-115040.jpg
So here is my bathroom How To Flatiron your hair!

20140502-115122.jpg
Tools
Rusk flat iron
( any professional iron with a temperature gauge)
Living Proof heat protection spray ( any professional heat protection spray)

20140502-115457.jpg
I rough dried my hair before bed last night and combed it out in the morning. Section your hair in quarter to half inch sections , comb all of your tangles out and apply heat protectant spray to the full section.

20140502-115734.jpg
Place the comb at your root , comb until the flat iron fits then comb under the flat iron and follow all the way down. This will allow you to not bake tangles and knots into your hair ( that’s what makes your hair break).

20140502-115912.jpg
Take your next section down and repeat … Notice this distance the spray is from my head! Bend your elbow up and never get closer than that with an aerosol spray.

20140502-120128.jpg
…and repeat( I can’t help but make silly faces with this many selfies!)

20140502-120227.jpg
Now for the top section, I will start around my face first. Notice I’m using a smaller flat iron on my Fringe. With any heat tool it is important to choose the correct size tool. You want to be able to find the flat iron in the section your ironing at least 3 times ( this allows you to smooth the iron through creating a more natural effect.

20140502-120530.jpg
Finally make your Husband take your selfie! It keeps it smooth 🙂

20140502-120613.jpg
I’ll use a dime size of the Living Proof PHD to polish my ends and add some moisture back into them. This is the same product I used the night before when I rough dried. It is a 5 in one.

20140502-120746.jpg
Add a jean jacket and Platforms to you PJs with Styled hair and your have an Outfit of the day!

Fashion dynasty note
Why a temperature gauge: it is important to read manufactures directions; a general rule is as follows
Highest Setting: course, resistant, ethnic hair types
Medium Setting: Most of you
Lowest Setting: Fine, thin, damaged hair types

Lastly, don’t iron a section more than twice. If you feel the need to do this take smaller sections!

Selfie plus 1

It wasn’t until today that I understood, fashion is more than a formula. Each person has different gifts and my family has been blessed with gift of style.

I think that’s all I can give you tonight, but don’t forget one thing. We laugh a lot, we look horrible often, and we do not take ourselves as seriously as you do! You can’t fail at fashion, but change your outfit!
