    Jennifer Lopez Hair Tutorial | High Bun 2019

    Can we talk JLo for a minute? Her high buns are so on point and we wanted to show you a new way of achieving the look you want with yours.

    The thing you’re not seeing in this video is that we started with a double pony.  What does that mean? It’s a crazy cool trick. If you have heavier or thick hair, this is most certainly for you.  You pull half your hair up in a rubber band and line it up with your eye line. Not too high and not too low. Then you bring the bottom of your hair up and combine the two elastics.  This gives you a secure ponytail that has extra support to help prevent headaches and the feeling of your hair falling down.

    This rest is all shown here!  I never ever thought to twist my hair and tie it in a knot!  I used this trick on my 8 year old daughter, Samantha’s hair.  Her hair is so long, I could knot it 3 times! Her bun not only looked better, it stayed in her hair longer.

    You just need some good volume spray and this is my all time favorite Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast

    Then you’ll want a great hairspray and this is my go to!  I don’t even like using other hairsprays! Moroccanoil by Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium

    I feel much more confident to do a top knot bun now that I saw the little tricks and tips that go in to it.  Sending love and hugs today! I know that when we take a little extra time and help our outward appearance match our inward, we’re more effective!  I know I feel better when I take time to do my hair and makeup!

  • How To Make a High Ponytail With Volume!

    High Ponytail Tutorial 2019 | How To Make a High Ponytail With Volume!

    This style is so so cute!!! It dresses up any outfit or style. I often forget how changing my hair can change the entire vibe of my look and it doesn’t cost extra! That’s a win in my book. This high ponytail would also work if you don’t have time to wash your hair but want to look put together and feel cute!

    The #1 one trick I’m freaking out about in the video, is to combine the two ponytails! Especially if you have thicker hair and ponytails give you a headache. The two rubber bands give your hairstyle much more support and will help prevent the headaches a lot. I always start and end my styles with this product Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast. It adds volume, texture and a little grit for styling plus it smells amazing!!!

    The first thing you start with is a half-up, half-down small ponytail making sure you’ve lined up the part to the edge of your eye line as you see Carine do in the video. Make sure you take small sections out in the front you can curl because this adds to the glam. You could always do a sleek high pony if that compliments your face shape and style, (I’m thinking of J Lo’s sleek ponytails and buns)

    Then bring the rest of your hair up and add the second elastic (preferably one that matches your hair color.). Remember, it’s not about perfect structure, it’s about “a little messy and little fancy” when it comes to hair.

    The next step is to take a small section from the back, wrap a half-inch section of hair around the elastic to hide it and then wrap little hair around the end of the bobby pin before you secure it under the ponytail. Personally, when I do this style on my own, I just shove the bobby pin in without wrapping the hair around it first. That particular step is hard to do on your own hair in my opinion.

    Then take a brush like the one she uses in the video. You can find one here, Cricket Amped Up Teasing Brush and gently sweep the under part of the ponytail to have more volume and lift.

    Finishing up with a little more Living Proof Volume Blast to add the final touches and maybe a little hairspray. Be sure to pull out and finger through the front curls so they don’t look like 90’s ringlets! Here’s my favorite hairspray that comes in medium or firm hold (I always get the Medium). The reason I keep buying this hairspray is because it doesn’t EVER make my hair sticky, but leaves a perfect shine and finishes my look so that I don’t look like I have helmet hair!

  • Quick Hair Updo Tutorial for Date Night

    Quick Hair Updo Tutorial for Date Night

    Do you ever feel like you wear the same hairstyle to every event? That’s me and I’m over it! To style my longer hair, I’m always thinking braids but this half up, half down style is actually something I could get into. It feels dressier and with the little techniques used by my hair bestie, Carine, looks dressy, too! Perfect for the Holiday parties we have coming up!!

    Having a volume spray helps get the hair ready to style and this one is my favorite: VOLUME SPRAY IS HERE! It smells amazing and also gives the right lift to my heavy hair! I love it on days two and three of not washing my hair to bring the volume and prevent the flat “dirty hair” look. Did I mention it smells amazing? I’m such a sucker for the good smells!

    With all the tricks of wrapping the ponytail and bobby pins, you’ll be sure to feel put together and even more glamorous than ever! My favorite part is how leaving the sections of hair in the front adds the spice!

    This hairspray is perfect to finish off any style. I’ve used it for years and it not only smells great (see, told you), it adds a good amount of shine to the hair. I prefer the medium hold version found here: MEDIUM HOLD HAIRSPRAY IS HERE!
