Travel Guide: Chicago

Travel Guide: Chicago

Posted by on May 5, 2016 in Education, Education Blog | 0 comments

I am unbelievably lucky- I have two incredible cities that I get to call home: Los Angeles, which is my current home base, and Chicago, my native city. Making the decision to move to LA was not an easy one; As excited as I was about LA sunshine, I knew that I would miss the Windy City (and my amazing, beautiful, incredibly tight-knit family). Flash forward nearly a decade later and I find myself in the position as a Master Hair Colorist where I get to travel (and travel a lot) for work- I am on an airplane multiple times...

I am so excited for this weekend- directly after I finish writing this article I am heading to Stagecoach.

I am ready for some great music and unforgettable memories with some of my best friends- for me, that’s what music festivals are all about. I am no stranger to the festival circuit, in fact, I go to a few each year and added another one to the list a few weeks ago by going to Coachella for the very first time. With festival...

LA to Hawaii to San Francisco to Arizona, back to LA, then straight to the airport the next morning to fly to Chicago- this is a typical week and a half of my life as a Master Hair Colorist and Wella Educator. Saying, “I travel a lot,” would be the understatement of a century, but I wouldn’t have it any other way; In fact, it’s one of the things that I love most about the career I’ve enthusiastically worked to create. When you are traveling as much as I am, learning how to be good at packing is basically...

If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, my social media, any article I’ve written for magazine, or interview that I have done, then you have no doubt heard me preach about the importance of healthy hair. The truth is that no matter how skilled your colorist or how amazing the products you use, they can only do so much if your hair is a frazzled mess. Overtime, we’ve talked about several different ways to get healthy hair- less heat styling, all natural products, even foods for healthy hair- but I would say that today’s tip is one of...

Spring Cleaning For Your Hair

Spring is such a magical time in Los Angeles- everywhere you look the tree’s are sprouting flowers as if overnight and the city is filling with so much beautiful color. After weeks of hopping from one plane to the next, I am happy to come home and be witness to the first days of my favorite season in [one of my] favorite cities. The changing of season brings with it a necessity to change your routine and this is even more pertinent for the spring season because we are slowly transitioning from the winter chill to the summer heat....

Aloha, my lovelies! I am pretty sure you’ve guessed it by now– I’ve been basking in the glow of Maui’s unreal sunlight these past few days. Believe it or not, I went to Maui for work; this is one of the factors of the career I’ve cultivated as a Master Hair Colorist that I love the most– I get to travel a lot! I don’t remember the last time a month went by without me being on an airplane at least three times to go teach a hair color education class. This works for me because I love to...

The foundation of beautiful color is healthy hair. If you’d like to effortlessly flaunt the luscious locks that you see in the magazines and on television, it’s not impossible!
