Hair Tool Loves

I decided to help everyone out with purchasing holiday gifts for the hair fashionista in their lives. I talked about stocking stuffers here, but let's get down to the goods for making you look fabulous! Here is what I'm loving to take your hair from drop dead gorgeous!!!

This gem is for those of you who have a hard time with curling your hair. It has four interchangeable barrels for all lengths of hair! All you do is wrap your hair around the barrel, hold till hair gets hot, and let go of the hair. Easy peasey with a side of PLEASEY!!! Find it here

It's a 10 miracle leave in product. The name says it all! It's literally a miracle in a bottle. Spray on wet hair before you brush it out. It helps detangle, is a light leave in conditioner, and helps protect from heat when you blowdry/style.....find it here

A ceramic flat iron is a MUST. It helps protect your hair from damage and smooth it out. It seems like they are always so expensive but don't worry, I found a fabulous one that is totally reasonable! I use this at home and in the salon on my fabulous clients. Find the Hair Art Ceramic Flat Iron here for $65.80

I am loving Redken Hot Sets 22. It's a thermal setting spray for curls! For those of you/your ladies who have fine hair that wont hold curl.....this product is for you!!! BONUS: it's on sale at Walgreen's right now for $13.69 here

Shopping for a sparkling personality? Grab this gorgeous crystal head piece for only $27.95 here

If you are wanting the best in blow dryer performance then you want the Chi Rocket. It's what I use in the salon to get my clients' hair dry quick. Find it here

If you want a good blow dryer that isn't too expensive then the Chi Pro is for you! Find it here for $94.49

This is for the men in our lives......American Crew Fiber. It's a pliable molding cream that helps men style their hair without it looking greasy. Find it here

Happy styling and Christmas shopping dolls!

Christmas Pics Upgrade

Yay......I did miss Jasmine's hair on Friday and got the full disc of our pics from our Xmas shoot! I can't believe how handsome my two guys are and that my little nugget Asher looks so grown up all of the sudden. Where has the time gone? He will be two in January and I just want to put him back in his newborn clothes and pretend he's a baby again.

Anyhoo, sorry for getting all sappy. Here are our amazing pictures taken by the very talented Jasmine over at Jasmine Amber Photography. Enjoy and I can't wait to share the final product of our Christmas Card!!! Happy Holidays Dolls XOXO
