K & S Wedding

I got to do my first "official" wedding hair yesterday morning. (I've done a few bridesmaids and flower girls in the past.) The bride was an longtime friend, and it was really special to be able to do her hair, as well as one of the bridesmaids, another good friend. Of course, I was so busy running around and doing wedding stuff that I didn't get many pictures. ;)

Since bridal and special occasion hair is something I'm hoping to do a lot of in my cosmetology career, this was a great start. I'm looking forward to this upcoming weekend... another wedding, where I get to do some bridesmaids!

Best Hair at the 2014 Golden Globes

2013 was a great year in hair, and the new year is off to an equally good start, with some particular standouts at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. The red carpet showcased many leading ladies sporting fabulous "dos," and here's my favorites.

Best Updo: Amber Heard. 
  • Volume in hairstyling is coming back, and what better way to utilize it than in this "Gibson girl" inspired updo?
Best Braids: Sarah Hyland
  • A crown of braids brings one of the biggest trends of the past year to the forefront, and adds sweetness to the young star's hairstyle.

Best [blonde] Bobs: Reese Witherson & Caitlin Fitzgerald
  • It seems that there's been a flapper resurgence, considering the amount of bobs that have been on display. Reese's asymmetrical design, with a side bang, suits her perfectly, and Caitlin's soft, slightly waved style is immaculate.

Best Ombre [and pregnancy hair!]: Olivia Wilde
  • Olivia's cascading locks fade from light brown to burnished gold in this soft ombre. I know how to do this in the salon now, if you're looking to try something new! :)
Best Bangs: Heidi Klum
  • The Farrah Fawcett look is coming back people, so get ready! Thick, eyelash-grazing bangs are definitely going to make some noise this year.

Which hairstyles were your favorites at the Globes this year?

This is the first in a series of multiple posts showcasing the best hair and beauty looks from the 2014 awards circuit. Keep a lookout for styles from the SAG and Critic's Choice Awards soon!

Welcome to FlyGirl!

I've created this web site as a companion to my beginning career as a professional cosmetologist, to help build my business, and provide lots of inspiration for my clients, friends, and online readers. I'll be sharing photos of my own work in cosmetology (and hopefully some tutorials down the road), photographs and links to hair and beauty resources, current and celebrity trends, organic health and beauty options, and also helpful articles and ideas on eating well, exercising, and taking the best care of your body. I think it's important that all of these things work together in harmony, so you can be the ultimate super FlyGirl.

Please feel free to leave comments, tell me about yourself and your own style, health and beauty journey, hint at what you'd like to see here on the blog, and just have fun! I can't wait to meet you here, and hopefully in person, as I begin to build a family of clients and am able to provide you with the best services and beauty support.

(I'm also on the lookout for a great FlyGirl tagline. Suggestions are welcome, and hopefully I'll have some up for voting soon! :)

Most of the pages in the navigation are empty at this time, but hopefully they'll soon be filled with oodles of inspiration. For starters, check out the ABOUT page to learn more about this site's purpose, and visit my long-time style blog, AmandaBeth, which I've been running since 2008, to get to know me a little bit.

It's time for FlyGirls everywhere to unite!
