I’m on a quest to help my friends, family and clients to solve their in-between color touch up woes. No one likes noticeable roots, especially when gray hairs are in the mix. The more grays you have, the more obvious new growth will be. Lately I’ve had far too many women tell me that they just can’t keep up. I’ve even had a few tell me they just want to transition to all gray. Not because they really want to be gray but because they just can’t stand the harsh line at their part, a constant reminder of how long it’s been since their last salon appointment.

Color Wow Root Cover Up is a product that aims to solve the problem. It is a mineral-based powder that is applied at your part and around your hairline to hide your roots. The company claims that with this product looks natural and “seamlessly camouflages roots.” I knew I had to try it.

Plaid Nail Art Tutorial

Oh autumn! It’s a lovely time of year. Though I prefer the heat of summer, I have to admit I’m enjoying the sweater weather. The one thing my wardrobe is missing this season is a soft plaid flannel shirt. I have to put that on my thrifting wish list.

Inspired by the trend, I decided to create a plaid nail look to dress up my Friday date night attire. I used a few different nail enhancements including water slide decals, striping tape, and nail studs to achieve a super fun mani with lots of variety. As always, make this your own! You can just used one of the fun add-ons for a more uniform look or try them all using whatever colors you like. I used black, white, and gold for a slightly fancy look.

Tutorial: Rope Braided Updo for Short Hair

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmailby feather


The bob, the lob, the chop… short haircuts are hot! As cute and easy wearing these cuts are, a lot of women fear that they won’t have styling options if they loose length. While there is certainly less to work with, there are still ways to create a variety of ‘dos including pinned back fringe, half up styles, and updos. And don’t forget that adding accessories like embellished barrettes, bobby pins, and headbands is also a simple way to change up your look.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you an easy way to twist short hair into a cute, versatile updo. I used a rope braid technique for this style but you can easily switch it up with a French braid, Dutch (reverse French) braid, or fishtail braid. The key is to incorporate hair as you work, allowing you to braid shorter lengths and layers.

My sweet friend, Macki, generously donated some precious vacation time to serve as my short hair model. Thanks, gorgeous!
