Jeannie Mai Hairstyles

Jeannie Mai Hairstyles

If you are a fan of the new hit daytime shot, The Real, or an old school fan of What Not to Wear, I’m sure that you have noticed the many different looks of Mrs. Jeannie Mai. So I admit, the main reason I watch The Real is for the many different Jeannie Mai hairstyles. At first I thought she just had the occasional cute style but now I am all about the different looks. Image from Jeannie Mai Instagram Image from Jeannie Mai Instagram Image from Jeannie Mai Instagram I noticed that she seems to have fine,  color treated, hair like myself. I love how her hairstylist utilizes hair extensions to constantly change up her style. This prompted me to want to give a couple of her looks a try. Would you rock any of Jeannie Mai’s hairstyles? So did I nail it? Who else is rocking the best looks on TV? Here is another look that she rocks. If you have a moment, make sure to enter my new giveaway for the Stylus by FHI Heat {below}!

Easy Curls with Bantu Knots

Easy Curls with Bantu Knots

For many of us, heat-styling our hair — whether we’re getting a blowout or straightening some unruly strands — is as simple as it gets. We know our tools, and we know how to use them. But, technology and techniques have become super advanced recently. Professional hairstylists are getting in on the action, so why aren’t we? It’s all about easy curls. So, we called in hairstylist Monaé Everett from Hair Room Service and asked her to show us the latest and greatest in heat magic. You’ll never look at your hair routine the same way again. These easy curls can be created in just minutes. Hood dryers are kind of magic: They attach to your hairdryer and allow you to disperse heat evenly over your whole head. It’s a great way to achieve gorgeous, natural-looking curls, like these. Prep your hair with a strong-hold mousse (Everett likes this one, by Osis). Your hair can be damp or dry to do this. Then, take a section of your hair and twist it. The bigger the section, the looser your curl will be. Twist the section into a bantu knot, and pin it in place. Continue to twist and pin around your whole head. “You don’t need to make clean parts between the bantu knots,” Everett notes. “Zigzags and jagged lines are good.” Fasten your hood dryer to your blowdryer, and then put it over your head. Everett suggests resting the hairdryer on a counter or a chair, so you can do your makeup while it’s drying. Let it set for about 15 minutes, or until your hair is completely... Read more

Matthew Sowa Photography Hello everyone, I hope that you had a wonderful and love filled weekend. Whether you showed yourself some love or spent time with a loved one, this should have been a weekend of enjoyment. As always with the weekend of love, many people became engaged and others got married. This weekend reminded me of one of my favorite recent couples, the Amasos. I provided wedding hair and makeup for the bridal party. It was such a pleasure to provide wedding hair and makeup services for this gorgeous wedding. The Amasos’ Nigerian Nights themed wedding was a sight behold. It was a beautiful blend of both Nigerian and Southern American traditions. Working with the a bride who desires a look that reflects fusion of two different cultures can be a challenge for some hair and makeup artists. This proved an easy task for me when I worked this gorgeous bride, Jasmine. To... Read more

5 Minute Makeup L’Oreal

5 Minute Makeup L’Oreal

Ok, I’ll admit it. Makeup can be expensive. As a professional makeup artist I know makeup a great investment. It can help to protect your skin from the elements and simply make you feel better about your looks. But sometimes you just don’t have the money, or you don’t want to spend the money. This 5 minute makeup look will save you both time and money. Then you are left with wondering if you spend $10 on foundation from the local drug store, will it be any good? I decided to give L’Oreal Paris a try because it was used back stage on Project Runway. The artist’s using it claim that L’Oreal has “every skin color”. Although I heard this, and saw the makeup on the models while they walked the runway, I still didn’t believe it would work for me. So check out this quick and easy 5 minute L’Oreal look. I’ll show you how I applied the foundation, concealor, and powder. Plus I’ll show how the makeup holds up throughout the day. Have you tried L’Oreal? What other drugstore brands do you like?

Pin Free Fake Ponytail

Pin Free Fake Ponytail

Sometimes I just want to put my hair up. Then I remember that my hair is thin, and it looks like I have a struggle pony when I put it all up. It’s got a slight bit of length, but looks anorexic… not a good look. I hate putting bobby pins in my hair because they itch and just all around irritate me. Glue isn’t any better, it hurts so bad that I wonder if I’m allergic to latex. Plus when the ponytail is pinned or glued in it’s difficult to blend the hair extensions and your natural hair. Using this method the wind can blow all through the ponytail and your secret is safe. So I came up with a super easy, pin free fake ponytail. Check out my step by step and let me know what you think. If you want to try out this look with straight hair, check it out here. Do you wear fake ponytails? Do they look like your own natural hair? Are they comfortable? Like this:Like... Read more
