I had the pleasure of doing makeup for Miss Ashley Kikut (now Mrs. Hamilton!) and her wedding party for her very special day. She was one of the reasons I got into makeup! I always admired her fashion sense and beauty and for her to ask me was an honour. It wasn’t hard doing makeup for this wedding party as all these girls are naturally beautiful! A lot of these girls I knew from high school (again girls I looked up to!) and it was fun doing all their makeup to their unique style (ex: one no liner, one liner only on top, one the more liner the better! haha). Thank you Ashley for letting me be apart of your morning! You were such an elegant bride and your wedding was something you see out of designer wedding magazines! Congrats to you and Matt!
So many of you may have heard of Olaplex, but don’t really know what exactly it really is. The first thing you see when you look on their website is “Insurance for your hair,” and let me tell you, that can not be more true!! I will admit, when I first started using this product, I was a little hesitant. Can a product really protect hair from NEVER damaging while still letting you lift and create things you wouldn’t dare do in a service? Yes. It really truly can! I have never had so much confidence in a product and it has pushed me to do things and get the results I want every time! I have not had a bad experience yet.
So let me put into a little more detail exactly what Olaplex is:
-Silicone, sulfate, phthalates, DEA and aldehyde free
-Never tested on animals
-Reconnects broken disulfide sulfer bonds in the hair
-Protects hair during thermal, mechanical and chemical services
-Leaves hair feeling softer, shinier and easier to manage with less frizz for weeks
Here is a perfect example of one of my favourite clients Breanna! When she first came to me, she had long dark ombre hair. Wanting a huge change, we cut her hair into the cutest pixie cut. From there we started as a medium blonde, we were able to lift her in one step to a gold blonde with no breakage. She then came in a week later and we got her lifted into a beautiful white blonde that totally shows off her cut and edgy style! I always get excited when she comes in, because she isn’t afraid of change and trying new things!
This is why I love my job!
