Working with brides

Some of my favorite clients are (yes, you guessed it thanks to the post title) brides. I love working with brides. It's such a beautiful experience, and I'm so lucky to be able to have a career that makes me feel great every single day. Over the past few years, I've come into my own as a hair stylist, and I've learned that it is SO important to go above and beyond for your clients. I want a bridal party to shriek with excitement when I come waltzing into the room with champagne and strawberries, little survival kits for everyone, and a smiling face to ease any nerves. I make myself available until the minute a bride walks down the isle, tending to any of those absolutely necessary last minute touch-ups. I find that this little bit of extra love truly makes a difference, and referrals come pouring in afterwards.

What would you want or expect from your hair stylist on your wedding day? Do you as a stylist, or has anyone gone above and beyond to make your wedding day amazing? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Fight frizz, naturally

The beauty industry is HUGE. There are so many shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, curl enhancers, dyes, chemical treatments...well, you get what I'm trying to say. You have SO many options. When you want to break away from the potentially harsh chemicals (even if only for a day!), there are totally do-able options right in your kitchen cabinet to fight frizz and make your strands smile. You probably wouldn't think about putting carbonated water on your hair to increase shine, huh? Avocado, coconut oil, carbonated water, and apple cider vinegar are just a few of the options at your fingertips. Although in the north east we're battling 4+ feet of snow, these super easy DIY hair treatments will help you beat humidity and say goodbye to frizz!

1. Carbonated Water

Let's talk chemistry here for a minute, beauty birds. Carbonated water has a lower pH and is slightly more acidic than purified water. Mildly acidic products can be used on the hair to harden the outer layer, flatten the cuticle, and shrink the diameter of the hair. Trying not to get too nerdy here, the ideal pH of hair is between 4.5 and 5.0. Giving your hair a final rinse with carbonated water will bring the pH down a bit, resulting in smooth, shiny locks. You can also try an apple cider rinse after shampooing for similar results! After shampooing and rinsing thoroughly, pour carbonated water or ACV and let sit for about 30 seconds. Rinse and love!

2. Avocado & Olive Oil Mask

Avocados are full of the good kind of fatty acids to help fight frizz, and olive oil has amazing hydrating benefits. This is a super simple mask! Mash one ripe avocado with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Make sure to whip them up into an easily-spreadable consistency. After shampooing, wring hair to get as much moisture out as possible. Apply the mask and let sit for 30 minutes. Shave, sing, do anything you'd like to pass the time! Be sure to fully rinse the mask out and be prepared to enjoy the softest hair ever!

3. Coconut Oil Treatment

Coconut oil is my all-time favorite. After shampooing, rinse hair completely and taking a small amount of coconut oil, apply to hair from ends to about two-thirds of the way to the scalp. Make sure not to get too close to the scalp (you don't need all that extra oil up there), let sit for about 30 minutes.  Feel free to sit with a cap on and shamelessly enjoy that juicy gossip magazine. Rinse thoroughly and embrace that I miss you summer feeling with delicious smelling and hydrated hair!

These three easy at-home treatments will keep you looking beautiful, even on the hottest days. Let me know how they work for you, and if you have any dream treatments I should try!


Welcome to my blog! I've searched the inter webs relentlessly for great hair blogs, and much to my dismay there's next to none! The amazing letterer Jessica Hische said the best way to create something new is to create something you want to see. Well this is it, so let's start celebrating beauty! I'm an Art History scholar turned hair stylist, and I love the journey this career change has taken me on! Here you'll learn some tricks of my trade, fun hair & beauty tips, and maybe even get some guest posts from my buddies in the industry.

I hope you enjoy and be sure to email me with any questions, comments, or concerns!
