Yesterday was my cousin Jackie’s 26th Birthday! She came into town specially for the week to work with me and do my hair on the set of Genuine Ken! I figured if I was going to be having 10+ hour days there would be no one else who I would rather have with me! We got to take a little lunch break so Paigey and Ash met us downtown at Bottega Louie and then we went for a mani/pedi. Unfortunately, we had to work late and missed her bday dinner and dessert party but hopefully we will get to celebrate some more at some point this week! It is a celebration in itself that she is in LA and staying with me for a week!!! Happy Happy Birthday Jacko!!! Move your butt to LA!!! I love you!
Here are Jackie’s tips on how to achieve the Perfect Ponytail!
Apply a texturizing product to damp hair (Enjoy Texture Spray is my pick). Roughly blow dry your hair upside down, using your fingers to add texture to it. Tease the crown of your head and then secure hair into a mid-height ponytail (slightly above your ears). Once secured, tease the hair in the ponytail for added texture. Spray with a flexible hold hairspray. Pull out face-framing sections of hair and use a flat to straighten them and create a slight bend at the ends.
Let me know how these hairstyles turn out if you try them!
When it comes time for holidays or special occasions I always find myself wanting to do something new and funky to my hair but end up resorting to something simple. With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, I thought it would be fun and helpful to have my cousin Jackie share some hairdos with all of you. They are simple styles that you can do on yourself or try on a friend. Even if you don’t have a special someone to share the holiday with, these hairdos are great for a fun night out with the girls or any special occasion!
Simply Straight – Start with damp hair. Apply a styling aid to help control frizz and add volume. (I like Enjoy’s Shaping Lotion). Blow dry your hair until it is about 80% dry. Then use a round brush to smooth out your hair, one section at a time. Concentrate the air flow towards your roots to create the most volume. When you hair is completely dry, spray your hair with a heat protector or shine spray (my favorite is Catwalk’s Camera Ready). Use a flat iron at medium heat on each section.
