Half Up Halo Braid Tutorial

It is time for a change.

Yes, a change in your daily hair routine. It’s Valentine’s Day so why not spice up the night with a romantic hairstyle.

I have to do a huge shout out to Devry Reeder Photography she is amazing and if you are in the Northern Utah area and need a great photographer, she is your gal.


Basically, all I am doing for this simple look is grabbing a piece from the front and doing a small dutch braid. (picking up hair and braiding it under) I stop picking up hair when I get a little past my ear and then do a regular braid and tie it off with a clear elastic. Repeat on the other side, then connect the two braids together. The last and most important step is to “fluff” out your braid. Remember sometimes it takes a few times to get this braid down but you will have it in no time.

xoxo pretties!

Healing Your Dry, Brittle Winter Hair.

Winter is the worst for dry, brittle hair… THEE WORST! I always get so many questions this time of year for how to keep our hair healthy and shiny durning these winter months.

Here are the products I recommend for this time of year. Now I am biased towards these brands because I am obsessed with them and know that they truly work. However, lots of brands have similar types of products that you can try as well.


Leave-in Conditioners-

This will add extra moisture to your hair and help seal the cuticle. I love the “High Dive” leave in cream from Rand Co and also “Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream” by Oribe.


Helps get tangles out, protects the hair from future breakage like knots, heat, etc. I use “Run Through” by Oribe, it is hands down my favorite detangled. Especially for my clients with extensions.


I can’t imagine life without serum. This will add the oils into your hair that the ends are lacking and not getting naturally from your scalp. I love how amazing this will help to take the frizz out of your hair and leave it so shiny and sleek. I have two oils I love “Tinsel” by Rand Co (this one is more on the light weight side) or “Gold Lust” by Oribe (this one is a lot more intense for really dry course hair and especially for extensions)

Texture Spray-

The number one reason I suggest texture spray is to help you not use hair spray. I know we love hairspray and it is the best for some styles, but durning this time of year it will just be so much harder on your hair. Hairspray will not only dry your hair out but it will also put a film on it and make you have to wash your hair more frequently. To help with that the texture spray will give you volume and s little bit of hold. I have tried lots of different texture sprays and my favorite by far is the Oribe “Dry Texture Spray”.

Static Control Spray-

Raise your hand if you hate static!! I know I do, I have recently discovered this product and it works so good at keeping the static and frizz away. I especially love using it on those days where I want to wear my hair straight and have that super smooth look. This product is called “Foil” and it is also by Rand Co. It’s the best.

Rose Gold Hair

I have had so many questions about my “Rose Gold Hair” I wanted to let you in on a secret on how I got it. It was super easy and the best part is it will wash out in a few washes. I used the Viral Conditioner by Celeb. I used equal parts of the color “Rose Gold” and “Coral” I added the coral so it would be more rosey. I also think it is key to put it on dry hair. I just mixed it up and grabbed random pieces of my hair and colored it. I left it on for 20 min and BOOM I love it!

I would love to answer any questions about it, it’s super easy and they also have lots of other colors you can try. Let me know if you give it a try I would love to see a picture.

My Most Repurchased Products

Hello Pretties,

I’ve been repurchasing a lot of my favorite products lately so I decided I would share an “empties” post. If you’re not familiar with an empties post, this is a post of the products that I have enjoyed so much that I buy it again and again. These items will also make great stocking stuffers, so send a *subtle* hint by shooting this link to your significant other (or mom, because I don’t trust my husband to buy the right thing). Also, I am always wanting to try new products so let me know what your favorite empties are that have you running to the store to buy some more.

Here are mine. Read more
