You know what I think you should do this weekend? Create soft, loose, and bouncy curls in your hair and make all the other ladies completely envious. Awwww, yeahhhh. For those of you who go waayyyy back with me, my very first hair tutorial involved creating loose curls with a curling iron, but not using […]

1. I spent most of yesterday being filmed for a documentary featuring stylish moms. (What the WHAT? How super cool/exciting/insane is that?? I can’t wait to see!) I just had to share this photo because I can’t stop laughing. First off, Wito is the little speck in the distance, about to be taken out to […]

Meet Stephanie. She has experimented with many different lengths, as you can see here. From Stephanie’s email: When I’m just going for a straight style with the ends slightly curled under, this only really works when it’s short. When it falls to my shoulders/clavicle, those curled under ends are flipped up in minutes. This is […]
I’m always mentioning a product or two in passing, but I’ve never put together a comprehensive list of my very favorite hair and beauty products until now. A few days ago, I sat down on my bathroom floor and spent a good amount of time going through my cabinets and makeup case, making sure not […]
Last week, I was invited by the lovely folks at Drybar to drop in the salon and enjoy a complimentary blowout. Trust me, it was time, as you can tell from the following photo. It had been several days, ladies and gents. Mama needed a wash. Upon arriving at the salon, I fell in love […]
I can honestly say that I’m no longer updo-challenged, thanks to Christina’s eBook. Check out 30 Days of Gorgeous Updos!
I don’t know about you, but I’m updo-challenged. Besides the fact that my hair repels bobby pins with brute force, I have never been able to get the hang of it. That is, until now. Seriously, ladies, I think I’ve figured it all out, thanks to Christina’s blog, Hair Romance. Have you seen her blog? […]

Hooray for #190, Lori! The random.org gods were on your side today. If you didn’t win, never fear…I have some more adorable Emi-Jay goodies to give away soon. Stay tuned!
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is no joke, people. NO JOKE. It would best be described as a clear dry shampoo, and does a great job refreshing hair that hasn’t been washed, BUT the real deal is its ability to create massively sexy volume. That volume I’m rocking on the right is just the spray, nothing […]
Okay, ladies! How fantastic is it that your questions have been answered by Pantene’s Principal Scientist, Jeni Thomas? Pretty fantastic if you ask me! Without further ado! Jillian – The static! I have long, thick hair and everything I wear in the winter makes my hair so static-y. I try to use anti-static spray on […]
As much as I try to let these long locks of mine hang loosely, my day-to-day grind calls for pulling my hair back regularly. Thank goodness for Emi-Jay hair ties because I no longer feel like my ponytails and braids are totally blah. I love these ties! The Los Angeles teenagers who started Emi-Jay have […]
Meet Leah. Leah has some gorgeous hair, no doubt. Alas, she wants a change, so who I am to deny her? Let’s take a look at her questionnaire. 1. What color is your hair? Do you color/highlight your hair? If so, what color? Natural blonde, no color. (Not interested in color, either.) 2. What condition […]
