This is Sherri’s second debut with the network and it was a lot fun to watch.  She does a fabulous job of styling the hair and showcasing looks for all hair types.

Previously, I have stated the importance of purchasing a quality hairpiece, whether for impromptu events, running errands or having a bad hair day!

DIY Floral Hairstyles from Boston Salon Owner

Fact: nothing screams summer beauty more than flowers in the hair! So, how do you rock this look even if you’re not at a musical festival? Boston salon owner and 30-year industry veteran Mario Russo of Salon Mario Russo has provided some “hair-spiration” for ladies who would love to sport blooms, but aren’t sure of the best way. We love a good flower crown, too, but in the office…? Not so much!

 Below, please find two DIY hairstyles with just the right amount of summer fun!  Incorporate small and simple flower accessories that are perfect for any day and event.

 Side Fishtail Braid

  1. Start with hair parted to the side. Take a front section of hair and Dutch braid hair along the hairline. Repeat with a smaller section of hair on the opposite side of your part. Tie off both braids with clear elastics.
  2. Gently pull apart each Dutch braid for added thickness and “messiness” and spritz with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to help with texture.
  3. Keeping the Dutch braids off to the sides, gather the top section of the rest of your hair (as if creating a half-up, half-down style), twist once and pin to condense hair and add volume before completing the full braid.
  4. At the nape of your neck, gather all hair to the side, with the exception of the side braids, and create a fishtail braid.
  5. Gently pull apart the braid for a full and messy look, and spritz this braid with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.
  6. Pull the side Dutch braids back to meet the fishtail braid and pin in place. Hide the ends of your Dutch braids by tucking them under the fishtail braid at the base of your neck. Continue pinning until all braids feel secure and complete the look with a spritz of Bumble and bumble Does it all.
  7. Insert flower pins throughout the braids. Keep it simple yet elegant by adding 4-5 small flowers. No need to overdo it!

Bohemian Braid Crown

  1. Start with hair parted in the center. Take two small sections of hair at the front and braid loosely on each side. Secure with clear elastics.
  2. Pull apart braids for added thickness and “messiness” and spritz with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to help with texture.
  3. Placing these braids to the side, gather the top section of the rest of your hair as if creating a half-up, half-down look. Split this section of hair into three parts in preparation for a third larger braid.
  4. Add the two side braids to the two outside sections of hair and begin one large braid at the back of head. Braid all the way down to the ends of hair and tie off with an elastic. Gently pull apart this braid and spray with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.

Tip: For an even more care-free bohemian style, get rid of the elastic altogether and backcomb hair at the end of the braid while spritzing with a strong-hold hair spray. The look will stay all day!

  1. Use a 1” curling wand to loosely curl the rest of your hair.
  2. Pin side braids down to your head to keep them from sticking out, then insert your flower pins sporadically throughout the style. Once again, don’t overdo it! A few flowers go a long way.

Motions Hair – Treat & Repair {Color Care} Products

Motions has launched a new collection of hair care products.  The brand focused on healthy color treated hair with a set of cleansers and conditioners.  For an intense treatment, ladies can also purchase the deep conditioning masque for all hair types.

Treat and Repair Color Care

From my experience with Motions Treat & Repair products, the shampoo helps to retain moisture without completely drying out my hair.  The conditioner works wonders (after washing) making my hair much softer than before.  I also want to share that both products smell great throughout my wash and a few days afterwards.  It was clear that a professional product was used on my tresses.

That’s a tip we can’t forget; there’s a lot of hair products out there but are they professional or salon quality?  Trust me ladies, that makes a difference in the health, styling, and growth of your hair.  Although it’s easy to grab a $3 dollar masque while picking up medicine, love your hair and help it to look it’s best.

Motions products can be purchased at your local beauty supply store.

I’m in between manicures and seeking to restore moisture back into my hands and cuticles.  This luxurious moisturizing treatment instantly restored my hands with a nice cooling effect.  The hand cream’s also formulated with Black Seed Oil, Honey, and Apricot Oil.  It’s the perfect size to carry in my handbag (and use) while wearing a pair of gloves.
