Your hair. We love. Give us some of your best-kept hair tips:
I cannot say enough good things about dry shampoo! I only discovered Dry Wash® about a year ago, but I had no idea what I was missing out on. I work out every day so my hair gets greasy super-fast, and I used to wash my hair every day, which was not ideal. Then I tried dry shampoo and what a game changer that was! Another tip of mine, for the more organic-minded consumer is using oil for shine, smoothness and hydration. I recommend coconut, argan, avocado or olive oil (my favorite is coconut). I melt about 3 tablespoons in the microwave and pour it through my hair when it is dry. If I am in a rush, I leave it in for an hour, or if I want a super hydrating and intense treatment, I sleep in it. I notice the best results when apply it consistently once a week!
What are some of your fave Paul Mitchell® products?
Like I said, I love Dry Wash—and I have tried a lot of dry shampoos! Dry Wash is one of the only ones that I really liked and use daily: no flakes or white residue and it smells really yummy.
I have frizzy, thick and coarse hair, and I love Super Skinny Serum® because it helps smooth everything down and gives my hair instant hydration.
Since I am all about ease and convenience when it comes to my hair products/tools, I am obsessed with Paul Mitchell® Express Ion Unclipped 3-in-1 because it is a variety of looks in one curling iron! It is so easy to store, heats up quickly and curls my hair efficiently. I can curl my hair in 10 minutes, opposed to the usual 25-30 minutes.
How did you get involved with Paul Mitchell as an Insider?
We were discovered through Instagram! The company liked our feed, thought we had great hair and emailed us to be Insiders! We were so excited. We love being Insiders because it inspires us everyday to try new hairstyles and express ourselves through our hair!
Who’s your current hair crush?
Blake Lively. She always has the cutest braids and different hairstyles. I love how creative she is! Her hair always looks so effortless and beautiful, which I think every woman strives for!
What are your go-to hair styles?
Half up (similar to Ariana Grande's hairstyle), beachy waves and high ponytails. All of these hairstyles take me only a couple minutes to do and last the whole day.
What hair trend do you wish would return?
Crimped hair. I used to crimp my hair every single day when I was in 5th and 6th grade. I had so much pride in my long, blonde and thick hair. The crimping made it twice the size, which unbeknownst to me, made me look like Frankenstein’s bride.
Create one of your effortless and gorgeous styles, and walk us through how you did it!
For this look, I used the smallest head attachment from the Express Ion Unclipped 3-in-1, the Neuro® Grip, Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Texturizing Sea Spray® and Twirl Around®. First, I washed my hair then I applied the Texturizing Sea Spray and Twirl Around into my damp hair. I blasted some heat with my blow-dryer for a couple minutes until my hair was dry, and then sectioned my hair off and curled half-inch pieces with my half-inch curling iron until my whole head was curled. I love these small curls because it makes other hairstyles so easy to do. I created three different hairstyles with beachy waves, and each one was fun and easy to do (approximately 2-3 minutes). And, these curls make every other hairstyle I do, whether that be a ponytail, half-up style or bun look so cute. Bonus: I kept these curls in for 6 days!
