November Hair Update & Favourite Styling Tricks

November Hair Update & Favourite Styling Tricks

With December just right around the corner, my hair is getting closer and closer to its final result. This month, I went back to Salon Tocci and Marie-Eve for a little touch up on my hair, as it’s been a month since I last got it done and my roots were slowly growing out. I did a touch up on my roots, changing the black to a dark brown so it looks more natural. Instead of doing what we usually do (lightening my hair) Marie-Eve and I decided to give my hair a little break, so she treated my hair with Redken’s newest treatment called Heat Cure. It is a professional in-salon treatment that can remove up to a year of surface damage. Hair feels regenerated, soft and is easier to manage after the treatment. This treatment was quick, easy and I was able to see a huge result. After this treatment, my hair was silky, smooth and softer than it’s ever been! The end of November actually makes my six months of hair journey with Redken–I began my hair transformation at end of April, and I can’t believe how light my hair has gotten! I am super excited for the final result this December.

A lot of you have been emailing me on how I do my hair and the products that I used to achieve my everyday hair. Here are little styling tricks for y’all!

I normally like to style on clean and first day, washed hair–since after each time I style it, I probably won’t wash my hair for a couple of days. I know it may sound gross, but this is the struggle with blonde hair; I can’t wash my hair everyday, but that's a job for my dry shampoo.

After washing my hair and letting it semi-dry, I apply Redken Frizz Dismiss Smooth force and Instant Deflate. These two products are infused with Brazillian Pracaxi Oil which helps with smoothing and keeping hair moisturized.

Before I apply any heat to my hair, I like to use the Redken Iron Shape 11 Thermal Protection Spray, after spraying that all over my hair, I comb it out to help avoid all the tangles.

For Straight Hair:
I normally use my T3 Micro hair straightener, it’s probably one of the best hair straighteners that I’ve tried out this year as it doesn’t dry out my hair like others.
How I straighten my hair is pretty simple and straightforward–I normally like to curve it inward at the bottom of my hair so it creates more body.

After finishing the heat process, I like to flip my hair upside down and use hair spray all over it, then flip it back up so it creates more volume.

For Curls:
I have recently been addicted to curling my hair, and my curls normally last up to four days!
After following all the previous steps, I would use the NUME Wand (it comes with three different size wands), currently using the biggest size, as it’s perfect for that effortless loose curl look.
I normally start curling from front to back so I know how to separate and part my hair and I tend to curl it outwards so it’s away from my face. I usually start the curl from 2/3 of my hair, mostly focusing on the ends because I personally don't like it when my hair is curled from too high up (it makes my head appear bigger than it already is). I alternate from inward and outward curls for the rest of my hair so it does not appear “too clean”. After curling, I just spray a strong hold hairspray all over my hair. I typically sleep in curls (in a low bun) in order to keep the curls “messy”. The next day, you will achieve the messy curl look! Of course, don’t forget to dry shampoo your hair, greasy roots is definitely a no go!

Go to Jumpsuit Look

You can never go wrong with black, especially when it comes to jumpsuits. You will never have to worry about pairing top or bottoms. A black jumpsuit will be an essential in your closet. I love the belted details of this jumpsuit, which add a little shape to this flowy jumpsuit. As well as the v-neck details, it adds a little elegant look to the jumpsuit. The wider leg design, make you legs appear longer and skinnier! In this look, I dressed it down with a pair of simple flat sandals and a black wash denim jacket that  dress down the look. Of course, you can dress it up with a pair of heels, it can be transform into a night out look.  Jumpsuit:  Le Chateau Denim Jacket:  Topshop Bag:  Chanel Shoes:  Hermes The material of this jumpsuit is light and breathable, making this jumpsuit as one of my summer uniform. When in doubt, just wear a jumpsuit, its classy and effortless. Besides a little trouble when you have to go to the washroom, but definitely worth sacri

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano & Small Review

Size: Nano Hardware: Silver Material: Grained calfskin Size Dimension: 8.75"x7"x4" Price: $2,585 CAD (+taxes) Interior: Tonal suede, no additional zipper/pocket Yes, I recently purchased the classic Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the Nano size, I absolutely love it and used it way too often maybe. This is the black with silver hardware as well as in the material of pebbled grained calfskin. It come with detachable strap with lanyard clasp fastening. When I was purchasing the bag, I was deciding between the baby or nano size for a very long time. I like how the baby size have a zipper pocket inside, but the nano does not. But the reason why I went for the nano is because I like to wear most of bag cross body, just a lot easier to get around the city. The baby size looks very awkward and big on my body when I wear it cross body. Despite the cons of not having a zipper inside, I have no issue with it. Also, when you look at the nano, you probably think it
