Farouk “Discover Beauty” Hair Show

So this past weekend I had the opportunity to model again at the Farouk Discover Hair Show at the Convention Center in downtown St. Louis. I was able to do this last year as well since my relative, Maggie Karcher, is a stylist for Farouk Systems.

The show lasted two days and I was able to model on Saturday. What an experience I am telling you! I not only got a totally chic cut but also got an amazing color that I’ve been getting compliments about since! Maggie and her stylist partner Nicholaus Todd were artists in the very essence of the word. I got behind-the-scenes ops and got to see famed stylists onstage such as Bradley Tuggle and Rocky Vitelli. So cool! Follow me on Instagram @chicgurl88 to see an insider video clip of the show!

Many thanks to Maggie, Nicholaus, and the entire CHI team, total hair rockstars! xoxo

Walking Runway For Athleta

I just got back from working the runway at Plaza Frontenac during the Live Fit Expo! I modeled yoga wear from Athleta and strutted my stuff on the runway!  Hair and makeup was done by Metro Design.

I LOVED wearing this stuff and wish I coulda taken it home with me. That shirt was the softest and most comfy thing I’ve ever worn. And that scarf? Well I was totally obsessed with it!

Tricks For Dealing With Oily Hair

I know this is kinda a nasty post, but I am a sufferer of oily hair and I’m sure there are a lot of you that suffer from it as well. I’m just plain sick and tired of only getting one day of great-looking hair from a shampoo. If you have extremely thick and wavy hair, washing it adds another 15 minutes to your shower routine. So, I like to be able to go at least a few extra days without it looking shiny. I researched products online and found these that are supposed to do wonders for your hair. I plan on buying one, if not all three tonight!

TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo Spray

This one looks too amazing NOT to try!

The Effect: Just a quick spray at the roots and this weightless, fine mist will revitalize and refresh your hair without any visible residue for hair that is full of movement.
