Todays post I am in detail going to answer some frequently asked questions that I get!
One: I’ll start with hair because I get a ton of questions about it, on social media and in real life. What products I use, how it always looks so healthy, etc.. And I always laugh, because I am so tough on my hair. I hate getting my hair cut, I go once a year usually to get it cut. So bad, I know. I did start recently getting it colored darker than my natural color.
What shampoo and conditioner do I use? I use the Biolage Colorlast shampoo and conditioner. I have been using Biolage since high school and I love it. I probably won’t ever change it. Also, it smells amazing.
What curling wand do I use? I use the T3 Whirl Trio styling wand. It comes with three different changeable barrels. I have been using this one for almost three years now.
What hair products do I use? For my hairspray I alternate between Drybar “The Sheriff” Medium hold hairspray and Big Sexy Hair “Spray & Play” volumizing hairspray. My texture spray that I use is life! I am obsessed and don’t know how I lived so long without it. I always have three bottles of Drybar “Triple Sec” at all times! As for dry shampoo, I don’t use a ton of it. I wash my hair pretty much every night. But if I do skip a night i’ll spray some Drybar “Detox” dry shampoo in it the next morning.
What hair straightener do I use? I have always been really simple when it comes to my hair straightener. Ever since middle school I have been using a Remington brand straightener. It just has always worked the best for me and lasts yearsss at a time. I am currently using this one. It’s under $31! I have naturally straight hair, so it takes me 3 minutes to run a straightener over it.
Two: I have always been pretty simple when it comes to make up, but I do get a ton of questions about my lipsticks. So i’ll link my top picks below.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in color ‘Perla’ is my everyday go-to lippy and the one I get asked most about.
MAC Lipstick in color ‘Angel’ and ‘Faux’
NARS Lipstick in color ‘Roman Holiday’ I have been wearing for years! Forever obsessed. During the fall and winter months I like to wear the color ‘Afghan Red’.
My go-to glosses are the NYX Butter Gloss Lip Glosses in colors ‘Angel Food Cake’, ‘Eclair’ and ‘Vanilla Cream Pie’. I have multiples of each color and keep them in my purses, make up bag, car and my bedroom. HAH. They are the best to just throw on and go and only $5!!
Three: This next question I get asked a ton. What do you do for work? I am a stay at home mommy and I love every second of it. Ever since I can remember when people used to ask what I wanted to be when I grow up, I always answered “a stay at home wife/mom, just like my mom!”. I am so grateful to be able to stay home every day and watch our daughter grow. It is so rewarding.
Four: How do you do your bun? I pretty much have my hair in a big bun every single day. I like to call it my “mom bun”. I get asked in person and on social media all the time how I get it like I do. If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you know which bun i’m talking about. The key to my great big bun is that triple sec texture spray I mentioned before. All. Of. The. Triple Sec. I also recommend having your hair curled. I mostly only curl my hair so my bun looks great. LOL. It just seems to hold better when your hair is curled. So, curled hair and a lot of texture spray. I will have a step by step video on my instagram stories within the next few days.
Five: What are your favorite stores to shop at? I pretty much shop at the same stores all the time. I am constantly on the Nordstrom app looking for new things, it’s sad how much I visit the app, website and store. HAHA. So, with that being said Nordstrom is my go-to favorite store. Other stores I buy my things from are Express, Loft, Red Dress Boutique, Lola Chiq, Ceci Palm Beach and Nordstrom Rack.
