Updos, Education, and lovin' the DEVA

Lots going on here in FlyGirl land... I've been on the floor on Saturdays for a month now, taking clients, and will be adding Tuesdays from 12-5 starting next week. If you'd like to make an appointment, drop me a message!


One of my favorite things I've been able to do in the salon are wedding updos! From styling flower girls, bridesmaids, and a wedding guest who wanted a simple, last-minute fishtail braid (see above), it's been a delight to see people's faces light up when they see the finished style, and be able to make their dreams come true.


And speaking of updos, I had my hair teased up 60s style for two straight weekends, playing Mrs. Darling in Franklin Performing Arts Company's production of Peter Pan (I also played Smee). Here's a picture. Everyone always asks, so yes, I did my own hair. ;)


I also just attended the Next Level hair show in Providence this weekend. There was lots of inspiration (see Pureology and Keratin Complex above), I learned some fabulous new razoring techniques for my Paul Mitchell carving comb, and an awesome ombré technique as well. (If anyone wants to be a model and let me try it out, I'll do it for no charge!)


Here's me and one of my favorite cosmo classmates. So happy we could meet up and that we've kept in touch. You bond in special (and terrifying) ways when you spend 30 hrs a week with people and sharp tools.


And I got a side hug from Martino! His Keratin Complex demos were educational and wildly entertaining. This time around I was too scared to jump up on stage and do the Cupid Shuffle with him, but there's always next year! ;)

Lastly, I didn't realize how much the DevaCurl way of living and caring for my hair had affected me, until I stopped using the products. Oops. Fortunately, I hit a Cosmoprof on the way back from the show and did a big stock up on my favorite things. Feel free to either come into the salon for a DevaCut, or message me to order products. I can get them to you!
