Boho Chic

It’s festival season! Grab your feathers and embrace your inner flower child.

Here’s how to rock Boho Chic festival hair:


Step 1:
Prep hair with a heat protector, concentrating on the mid-shaft through your ends.

Step 2:
Pull back the top half of your hair and secure with a clip. Grab a 1″ to 1 1/2″ section of hair and twist.

Step 3:
Wrap the twisted section of hair around a curl wand, leaving the ends free for a more undone bohemian look.

Step 4:
Gently loosen waves with fingers and lightly mist on a salt spray for added texture.

Step 5:
Pull a 2″ section of hair from the nape, and prepare to get colorful.

Step 6:
Festival style is all about fun pops of color. Get the look without the commitment by using something like L’Oreal Liquid Chalk. For this look we colored three different sections with Pop Pink, Blue Hue and Very Violet.

Step 7:
Starting at the part, add two small braids on each side, and pull the braids around to the back and secure with bobby pins.

Step 8:
Set your style with a finishing hair spray.

Metallic Hair : Trend

Purple Hair Stock Girl crop

Have you noticed the winter trend of taking last year’s pastel hair colors and amping them up with extreme shine to create a metal effect? We have and we’re on board with this cool color effect. Celebs have been rocking the trend and it’s all over the runways, Pinterest and Tumblr.

To get this look, use Ion® Color Brilliance® Master Colorist Series Hair Color. Get your creative hair color juices flowing with these Sally Beauty permanent creme colors : Smoky Pink, Sable, Black Cherry and Midnight Blue Black.


To achieve any metallic hair color, you’ll need to start with a bleached base, creating a blank canvas for your shiny metal. If you go with the hot trend of metallic grey or favor a bright metallic blonde, Clairol Shimmer Lights Original Conditioning Shampoo is a great maintenance tool, canceling brassiness and adding immense shine.

Stocking Stuffers

Stocking Stuffers have got to be my favorite part of Christmas morning. Forget the big presents under the tree, give me a stocking full of fun trinkets, all individually wrapped into perfect, teeny tiny packages. That said, I’m sure it’s my mom’s least favorite part of the holiday since while my sister and I are most definitely adults now, she’s still the one running around town to find these treasures. A mother’s work is never done, right?

If you’re in charge of stuffing the stockings this year, here’s a few ideas to aide you in your hunt!
