Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in the hair care industry?
Well, my high school was a beauty school- Sarah J. Hale Vocational High School. That's where it all started. I worked in salons after school and on the weekend. As my clientele grew, the opportunities started to pour in and the rest is history!
Most brides want their hair to be full and healthy on their wedding day. Can you share some tips on how to achieve healthy hair?
Brides should start a hair care regimen at least 3-6 months prior to the wedding date to allow enough time for their hair to be it's fullest and healthiest.
What are some hair care products that you can’t live without?
I absolutely cannot live with out the Motions Deep Conditioning Masque! Its has saved many heads!
What are some of the myths about achieving healthy hair? Does heat styling really damage your hair and is there a way to prevent that damage?
The best way to prevent heat damage is to stay away from it all together- but that's not realistic for the trendy girl! So to keep damage to a minimum keep the use of hot tools to a minimum and incorporate conditioning treatments to keep hair moisturized.
What styles do you recommend for a bride who wants to keep her look all day long and not worry about her style falling throughout the course of the day?
Pick a style that's a bit stationary – half up/half down, a twist style, or a roll. These basic styles are easy to maintain all day.
If our brides can’t make it to the salon every week, do you have tips for at home hair maintenance?
Invest in great quality at home hair care- and use it! Motions Haircare has something for everyone with great conditioners at a great price. Take advantage and spoil you hair healthy!
