Sexy Sleek Hairstyle + Rose Gold Styling Tools #PMBigNightOut

Paul Mitchell Rose Gold Smoothing Iron Sculpting Brush Review You're GoldenI have a mild obsession with rose gold, fruity girl drinks, and beauty products. (Girls who are with me, say hey-oh!)

So when I (being a #PMInsider and all) got the Paul Mitchell limited edition You’re Golden Express Ion Smooth+ rose gold smoothing iron and sculpting brush, my face basically did this:

Technically, this product came out as part of Paul Mitchell’s Big Night Out, but my very first thought was that it would help me create the perfect hairstyle for my big night in: my girls-only #SassyGlam House Party. (Spoiler: it was every bit as epic as I imagined it, evidenced by a regrettable Vine). Continue reading “Sexy Sleek Hairstyle + Rose Gold Styling Tools #PMBigNightOut”

Beauty Tips: Brightening Dull Hair

how-to-prevent-dull-hairI mentioned having problems with dullness in my hair recently, so I thought a post about some solution might be of use to any of my readers who despise those Pantene ads where Laetitia Casta’s hair looks like a big brunette ribbon of glossiness.
