POPSUGAR: #100HairDays

Love this article by  on Popsugar to cover my 100 hairdays challenge! See the full article:

 

 

100 Days of Beach Waves, Braids, and Rainbow Hair

You know the drill: your alarm goes off, you snooze, finally get out of bed, shower, and then head to your vanity where you think, "What the heck am I going to do with my hair today?" Wearing the same style over and over again (I know I rely on the low ponytail way too much) can be totally boring, especially during Halloween and holiday party season. When I saw celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa dominate the 100-day hair challenge on Instagram, I was totally inspired. Sarah is the genius behind the Beachwaver curling iron (my personal favorite — it spins on its own!), as well as a plethora of other handy tools, including a portable hair iron. She took on this challenge wholeheartedly sharing looks that included innovative braids, waves, bold colors, and retro influences. It's pretty epic.

"I have always loved braiding hair, painting, DIY art, and home-decorating projects," she told me. "I love the concept of 'hair as art' and find it to be such a moldable, creative medium. I drew inspiration from old Hollywood imagery, nature, and my celebrity clients. One of my favorite portions of the #100HairDays was creating different hairstyles from over the decades. A celebrity makeup artist and friend of mine, Gianpaolo, wanted to do my makeup, so we teamed up on creating some of the '20s-'60s looks, which was such a treat! Aside from the decades series, I also had fun creating the long pink fishtail braid and wearing funky colored wigs!"

One of the things she learned from doing this was that it's a real commitment. Even if it was 11 p.m., she made sure to post a new photo so as not to let her Instagram followers down. And would she do it again? Totally, she confirmed. "I know that hair can change the way you look, because I change the hair of my clients all the time, so it was interesting to see how you can be perceived differently when you change your hair," she explained. "My goal was to always be creative so that meant styling my hair in looks I've never thought of trying before, even if that meant stepping out of my hair comfort zone."
