Craig Burns Salon Spa Workshop

August 27, 2014
The sylists at Craig Burns Salon Spa in Delafield, WI were amazing to work with.  They were all so nice, eager to learn, friendly and talented.  Thanks again for having me out, guys!  Here are some pictures of the looks I taught during the class.

This is a tutorial that has been on my YouTube channel for several months now, and I just realized today that I never posted it to my blog.  Enjoy!

One-on-one Class

A few weeks ago I got to teach a one-on-one class to a lovely stylist from Indiana named Emily.  Here are some pictures from the updos I taught in the class.  Thanks to Chelsea and Erin for modeling for me!

This beautiful mama happens to be one of my closest friends. We were pregnant at the same time, and we only live a few blocks from each other. Strolls around the neighborhood with our little ones occur on an almost daily basis, and her company is always a pleasure.

This week I'm partnering with Refinery29 and Regency Beauty institute to highlight the summer trend of merged braids.  Regency is also giving away a $1,000 Sephora gift card and a day of pampering. You can learn more here.
But first, it's time to announce the winners of the Hoodie Love giveaway!

Listed by their Instagram handle . . . 

The three third place winners of a Hoodie Love scarf - 

The two second place winners of a hoodie, scarf OR dress - 

The grand prize winner of a scarf, dress AND a hoodie - 

If you are a winner, email me at and I will get you your prize.

Below is a tutorial for a simple merged braid you can wear this summer.  The best thing about merged braids is they are so simple but look really complicated.
