Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

How did you do your hair in the Bridal hair photo with the daisies in it?
I call that style the "Kapow". It takes a while to do it (sometimes an hour or two, depending on how defined I want my curls), but it's great to do for photos or big events. It really makes every curl stand out.

Basically I go through my hair curl by curl, separating them out one at a time, and smooth over each one with a bit of water and a tiny bit of a combing conditioner. For more volume, I take the curls along my hairline and smooth each one while holding it up a bit from the roots to make them stand out more. I often scrunch and pin up the hair in front of my face so it will dry with volume, and hopefully not hang into my face like it often does (I have a really low hairline). Once I'm done, I let my hair dry. I may even scrunch it, depending on if I'm wanting the ends to look really curly. For more volume, I turn my head upside down and run my fingers through it in sections, just at the roots.

A shortcut to this is to define the curls just at your hairline. This will give the curls that people can see the easiest the most definition.
