Twist Back Bridal Hair Q&A

Happy weekend, y’all! As August draws to an end, we are now entering into wedding season round 3 – my personal favorite: the fall season. J and I will be going to about 5 weddings in the next two months, and I am so excited for all of the beautiful autumn wedding celebrations.

To kick off this fun time of the year, I am answering some of the recurring questions I have received throughout the past year, after sharing my Top 5 Reasons to do Your Own Wedding Hair & Makeup about what products and tools I used for this twisty pulled-back look I did for our wedding:

Q. What type of curling iron did you use?

A. The Conair 3/4″. Instead of twisting the hair, I wrap it around the curling iron. 

Q. Did you use any type of prep product before styling it?

A. Yes! After showering I always apply Oribe Balm to protect my hair when I know I will be styling it with heat. Then, immediately before I curl a section of hair, I spray it with Oribe Heat Styling Hair Spray – typically I don’t need finishing hair spray when using this product as it holds so well.  

Q. Where did you get your hairpiece from?

A. It actually came from a headband I saw one afternoon at Francesca’s (similar one linked here). I cut the rubber sides off the headband then measured how much of the lacy design I would need to have it fit between the twists. Bobby pins were all I used to secure it. I loved that it was super light and didn’t interfere with my veil!

No More Brassy Blonde

Hello everyone and welcome back! Things have been a bit crazy around here, and I don’t know about y’all, but when my schedule is bursting at the seams, I tend to put myself on the back burner. In light of that, I haven’t gone to see my fave stylist at Mark Christopher Salon in quite some time, and my hair was definitely giving that detail away much more than I realized!

So when Influenster emailed me about an opportunity to review a complimentary sample of Kenra Brightening Treatment Masque, I definitely jumped on the opportunity.

Until comparing the before and after pictures, I had NO idea how brassy my hair had gotten. (So try not to judge lol ).

Here is my messy and very brassy before:

& here is my much less messy and much more pearly blonde after:

Using the masque was super easy, smelled glorious, and it has definitely extended the life of my blonde balayage.  I strongly recommend following up with the Oribe Heat Styling Balm  after completing the masque, before styling with heat. If you aren’t familiar with Oribe, they’re another stellar luxury beauty company that has amazing scents in all of their high quality products. If you’re curious about any of my other beauty recommendations, feel free to drop a comment below and let me know!
