Big Hair, baby.







Big hair is synonymous with raw 6o's glam.
 It makes us feel bold, sexy & a little wild.
 Big hair is structural, built on many airy back-combed layers. 
The top layer is ( in most cases) smoothed and sprayed within an inch of it's life. 

Tease it, Spray it. Wing that eye out, & you're all set to smolder...

Thanks Brigitte.....

Vintage love


Have you ever stopped to think how many centuries woman have been coiffing their tresses?



The fascination with shape, movement and shine....


..... and little sparkle never hurt either.


A more modern take on vintage glam. 


The love affair continues.

In addition to being a bride and pinning down that perfect DO, how often have you been less then thrilled with your wedding guest coif? Here are a few easy DIY styles that are perfect for all the special occasions you will be attending this summer.
This amazing style and tutorial by the Martha S. team is not only easy, it's versatile. It can look a little different every time you do it. Which is a good thing!

The key is to keep it fresh and not overworked. Enjoy your photo-worthy style.

Do you hear those bells ringing?

If you are scouring wedding blogs/mags/ boutiques, the answer is YES!

I've got to be honest, I love styling brides. The Drama, The Romance... maybe I'm just a sucker for all the "back-stage" bustling. The primping and the finery. 

I'll be sharing more of the Blushing Beauties I had the honor to style on their big day. 

In the meantime enjoy some styles I am loving right now..


I love you, BHLDN

Hi There!

Welcome to my blog. 
If you don't mind, I'd like to share my life in Hair with you.

 I've been in the BIZ for a decade(!). I've learned a lot, I've seen a lot. I've experienced a lot of hair thorns.

I hope you enjoy my musings and hey, if you want to leave a comment go ahead ;)
