From Paul Mitchell to Aveda...

Well...its no secret. I am officially property of Aveda now. I say this with a joyful spirit and maybe a little apprehension. After four years of living and breathing Paul Mitchell, from their color line to products to customer culture...I have gone to the world of pure plant based products and red pigment derived from Uruku instead of boiled beetles. Happy...yes! Crazy??? Maybe slightly. I started two weeks ago as an Aveda Institute Instructor. I will intern for license purposes and after meeting North Carolina's requirements I will be on my own!

I am still a lover of all products. You know that show about hoarders??? The one where people who are beyond being pack rats turn their lives and homes over to a professional organizer and a therapist? Okay...I don't hoard big stuff. I hoard products. If its on the market I've tried it or I've got a friend trying it. If I don't like it, I wait a week and give it one more chance before it gets chucked. I've tried so many products over the years that I have lost track. I will not, must not, forget any longer...and for the hair challenged of the world, this blog is for you ;)

In my Hair Bag this week.....

Paul Mitchell Worked Up Working Hair Spray
Love.Love.Love. Never too heavy. Great for creating curls with your flat iron. Fabulous for a messy up do. Makes your hair pliable yet gives you light hold without being sticky or freezing. Your hair still moves when you absolute must. Personally, I wear my hair up all of the time. Messy french twists, side chignons, wanna be Audry Hepburn style complete with the "bump." If my hair is clean, its too silky and won't do a darn thing. I am a dirty hair gal ;) If I've got clean hair Worked Up makes my hair dreams come true!

Big Sexy Hair- Back Comb in a Bottle
Want the bump without the "bump-it"? Avoid the Snooky look and let the bottle do the work for you. Big Hair is in if done right. Remember you aren't on a runway you're in reality, so unless you are playing dress up with your five year old, less is more. A little bit of Big Sexy Hair in the crown area is just enough to take your flat lifeless locks to voluptuous diva. Great for a night out with your sweet man.

Flower Bobby Pins from Forever 21

I don't know what I did before these!?! I have them in every color. I love that they add personality and a "vintage-esq" feel to any outfit. Put them in your up do. Use them to hold your bangs back. Attach them to your pony-tail holder. On the light side of your part, pin the hair back behind your ear. Quick and easy. No fuss. Just what I love. At $3 they are a fab addition to any accessory wardrobe.
