Hair
Recently I realized that we’ve never really had a specific chat about hair serums. There are so many different formulas from silicone-based, to alcohol free, to natural, to curl enhancing, etc… All of them promise to deliver mega shine on the driest, dullest hair. But there’s more to it than that. I thought it would be fun to break down 8 of my favorites (each being my jam for a different reason), tell you what I’ve experienced with each and tell you who I would recommend them for. I tend to apply some sort of serum on almost every head of hair that I curl which I think is a major contributor to why my curls get so perfectly piece-y. I think the only real way to gauge your love for a hair serum is to put a drop in your palm and try it on your hair! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6: L’Oreal EverStyle Smooth + Shine Serum: This is an awesome budget friendly alternative! 7. 8.

How Understanding Personalities Can Change Your Career How well do you think you know yourself? Are you a good judge of others? If you want to become your best self, it’s important to tune into personalities--your own as well as those around you--says John D. Mayer, author of Personal Intelligence. “Personality is a means by which each of us navigate our lives,” says Mayer, a professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire, and one of the co-developers of the theory on emotional intelligence. “It balances social requirements placed on us, and helps us go through a series of settings and situations in everyday life.” Partial French Braid with Cascading Hair ~ Tutorialalso known as the "Waterfall Braid" Fashion I’m not the originator of this hair style but I’ve gotten so many requests for it, I thought I’d give it a go for you. I don’t know what it’s called either so I haven’t researched it and/or found any other tutorials for it …thus, this is my version of it, and I’ve dubbed it the Partial French Braid w/ Cascading Hair. The photos I’ve seen online show the braid a little more straight across the back of the head and mine sort of braids at an angle, similar to my side/low french braid up-do.

PIN IT UP, GIRL Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”.

tutorials We get a lot of emails asking how to use brushes correctly so I hope this helps you out a little! A brow brush is designed to be stiff and angled for a reason. And we use the slanted edge to shade and the tip of the edge to outline. Put those components together and a brow brush is quite frankly a thing of perfection! The 9 Types of Coffee Addicts Everyone Knows Coffee addicts all take their caffeine kick differently. Some like it iced, others go for black and a few prefer it injected directly into their neck vein. While our consumption styles vary, it is very clear that in 2014, the world runs on a small, smashed up bean dissolved in hot water. About 83% of American adults drink coffee, a number that shows no sign of decreasing, seeing as how we're insane and headache-riddled without it. We've broken down the various types of coffee junkies you see every day, all completely, hopelessly addicted to their own personal form of wake-up juice.

No-heat curls tutorial First, get ready for bed by putting your husband's ratty t-shirt on, removing all makeup, and applying your nightly eye cream. That actually has nothing to do with the hair tutorial, I just thought I'd preface my appearance in these photos. Please excuse. Hair needs to be damp. I use root boost and thickening gel to give my hair some texture since it is very fine and has a hard time holding curl. Simple 3 Twists Hairstyle First, a little back story: I was on Pinterest (I know, big surprise) awhile back and Ms. Ez from Creature Comforts pinned a fun messy hair-do, and mentioned she needed to learn how to do it. So I piped in that I should show her how. I have been wanting to do a hair tutorial for ages now, so this was the perfect reason to get it done. I was a hairstylist in my first life, and I am not too shy to say I was a pretty good one – I can’t say that about everything, so I will take it where I can ;). So here it is, my first hair tutorial, wahoo!

SHORT STUFF photos and post design: Kristin Ess This updo/chignon was kind of a random discovery for short hair. My gorgeous client Katie, who has a long bob, was sitting in my chair and this happened so we thought we’d snap some photos and share since we get a lot of requests for short hair styles!

2014 Summer Reading for Accountants Summer's here -- the perfect time to dive into the new revenue recognition standards from FASB, and then spend some quality time reading up on the Affordable Care Act (so you can finally understand what all the fuss is about). That ought to take you up to fall. Or, you can take a step back from the technical and grab some of these shorter reads, which skew heavily toward positioning your firm and your career for the future, offering new ways to think about where the profession is headed.
