Jessica Zohr

I had so much fun doing this fishtail top knot on the beautiful Jessica Szhor last week! She was on Nick Lacheys Big Morning Buzz on VH1 promoting her show, Complications. I love that she let me do this edgy top knot braid on her as part of my 365 Days of Braid Challenge!


Emily Blunt

I styled the stunning Emily Blunt last night for the 9th Annual American Institute for Stuttering Gala in New York City. Love how she looked with these loose textured beachwaves! For all the step by step, see it here! 


Mane Addicts: What's in the bag?

Have you ever wondered what your stylist has in his or her stylist kit? Well Mane Addicts has a really cool feature they do where they ask different stylists "What's in the bag?". This past week I opened up my kit and shared my styling must haves! To read the entire article, click here!

So thrilled that the Beachwaver S1 was named "Editors' Obsession: Game Changing Curling Iron" by E! Online! Thanks for the love E! To read all the other Editors Obsessions, click here!



Lea Michele

I worked with the very talent Lea Michele last week for two of her appearances promoting her new show, Scream Queens. Lea is always up for helping me with my 365 days of braids challenge by wearing two different braids for both appearances!

For her first appearance, I did two different braids into a low updo! Even more exciting, Lea let me cut her bangs! She really pulls bangs off so I was so excited that she was bringing them back!

The second look I did on her was 3 strand braided messy pony tail. She rocked this look on the Fox Upfronts Red Carpet!
