More Sprinkles, Please


Happy Aloha Friday! This post is sure to send you sparkling right into the weekend.

Glitter roots is a trend that we’ve seen this year, and I love it. I’ve yet to try it out on myself, so I thought I’d try it on my doughnut loving daughter. After all, she always goes for doughnuts with sprinkles. Now she has her own doughnuts on her head.

I may have had a little too much fun doing this, and I can promise you that I will be playing with glitter in hair much more! What do you think of the glitter hair trend? Would you rock it? Let me know in the comments below!

Pali Puka

image image image image image image image image

Saturday afternoon, my husband and I had a date and it was my turn to plan what we did. I’d been wanting to hike to Pali Puka, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Hiking to the puka itself was pretty quick. It’s pretty low difficulty in my opinion also. The only hang up would be if you have a fear of heights because you do walk along a ledge for a bit.

After we reached the puka and took in the view, we decided to follow the trail further and climb to the peak above it. That was a bit more challenging but so worth it!

I hope you enjoy these photos from our adventure!

Olomana Peeks

imageimageimage imageimage image image image

Yesterday I hiked the Olomana Trail with my friends. There are 3 peeks on the whole hike and we climbed each one. It was a major adrenaline rush as there was some rock climbing involved that I have never done before!

The weather, apart from being extremely muggy (due to the recent passing of hurricane Darby), was perfect for us…aka no rain! I hope you enjoy these few photos from my adventure!

I Cheated


I cheated. It’s true. But I don’t feel completely horrible because I only half cheated.

One of my resolutions for 2016 was to not color my hair for the entire year. The good news is I made it 8 months! But I finally reached my brink! Matrix came out with new Watercolors in their ColorSync line of hair color and I could not resist.

I mixed Coral Peach and Quartz Pink and diluted my mixture with clear, and applied it only to my prelightened hair. So you see, I did amp up my color, but I didn’t touch my natural hair!  My virgin hair is still virgin, and so my hair journey for the year continues.

I love how the color has a rose gold feel to it and compliments my Pisces nail polish from Julep.  It seems it was meant to be.

Like it?

Salon Centric LIVE

image image image image image image image image image image

It’s been just over a week now that I was in San Francisco for the Salon Centric LIVE hair show. I flew into the city early and was able to complete my audition to be a certified Matrix team member. I’m thrilled to say that I passed and I’m officially part of the team!

The Matrix team did an amazing job and the show went as smooth as can be. Nicholas French, Lenny Strand, and Hope Brooks had an incredible stage presence and had the audience completely captivated. It was inspiring, hearing the crowd go from laughter to  “ooohs” and “ahhhs” when something clicked that they could take away with them.

I got to style the pixelated wig that Lenny colored for the event, and then I got to model it. I was really wishing the look was a bit more permanent because I loved it!

I hope you enjoy all of the behind the scene photos of the show. I’m so blessed to be part of such an incredible team.

Transformation Tuesday: A Little Pink Me Up

image image imageHi loves! I can’t wait for you to see my latest creation!

My girls got out of school 2 weeks ago and they have been begging me to color their hair pink and purple. I told them that I’d do it in June if they were good for the rest of the school year, and they could have it for summer. They kept their end of the deal, so it was time for me to deliver.

Now, even though I’m a hair stylist, I have a personal conviction to keep my kids “kids”as long as possible. They have the rest of their lives to be grown ups, so I’ve been against altering their hair until they are teenagers at least! But thanks to Matrix, there is a product to meet both our needs.

Color Graphic Lacquers come in 8 different shades and are a true semi permanent hair color, lasting about 12 shampoos. If you use these colors over pre lightened hair, you will get much more intensity. However, I did not want to do anything permanent to my girls’ hair, so I put the color onto their virgin hair.

I mixed magenta and light pink for this look above and I think it turned out so pretty! I love how her sun kissed pieces have now become pretty pink highlights! By the time school starts again, she’ll be back to herself. I say that’s a win win 🙂

May Beauty Faves

Happy Humpday! I’ve got some amazing beauty products to share with you this month, so let’s get to them!

  1. Matrix Style Link Mineral Play Back. Matrix has been killing it this year with their products. Being that I already was in love with the Style Link product line, I was eager to get my hands on their new mineral products. This dry shampoo has a great feel to it, as well as easy application and a wonderful smell!
  2. Circle of Friends Chocolate Shampoo. If you have kids (or you’re a kid at heart) this product line is so fun! I want to highlight this particular product because I’m so impressed with it’s performance on my children’s crazy curly hair. They love it because it smells like chocolate pudding, and I love it because of the incredible shine and control it gives their hair.
  3. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye. I recently came across this eye cream and from the first time I sampled it, I was hooked. The texture feels amazing and I love how it makes my eyes look! I also like wearing it during the day. My makeup lays really nicely over it.
  4. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer. A few weeks ago I saw a video posted by Kandee Johnson about this foundation. Take a look at it and you’ll see why I was instantly sold! I purchased it as soon as I could and I’ve been loving it! Thanks Kandee!
