Good as Gold

Okay so let’s talk about my hair.

My hair is one of the ways I express myself. I love wearing my gray, pink, lavender, blue, and white wigs because it gives me such a unique look and I feel like it’s so ME.I have no idea why, but last November, I decided to go blonde. I loved the way my Khloe wig looked on me, so I decided to make my real hair that color. I went from box dye (I know) permanent black hair to platinum blonde in about 6 months.

I regret it so much. My hair is fried, I had to cut off so much from the damage, and lost even more from breakage. I didn’t like the platinum look either because I felt like it washed me out. Hey, we learn from our mistakes! Luckily I have my wigs so I could just throw one on when I had to go somewhere or film without feeling weird about my hair washing me out.

My hair god in New York, Alex from The Drawing Room in Soho (this is not where I went blonde), referred me to my hair god in Miami, Julia from Atma Beauty in South Beach, who literally helped me love my hair again the way it is. Julia glossed my hair and blended it so that my dark roots seamlessly melt into my blonde, which is a lot more golden and not very platinum. That gloss made all the difference in the world for me. You may not see the difference but for me, it made me confident.

Last night I went to dinner with my friend Matthew from the pageant industry and my business partner/boyfriend Franz. I decided to wear something casual but cute and of course, GLAM. My client from Miss Earth United States, Brittany Georgia asked me to style her hair like this for the first day of her pageant and I was so obsessed with how it came out, I had to try th elook on myself!

The original look that inspired me on Brittany Georgia!

For my shorter hair, I used my Zala honey beach blonde hair extensions to give my hair length, density, and the illusion of health ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I have to honestly say your hair is just exceptional . It looks so natural and part of you. You also have such a beautiful complexion that anything you wear would look amazing.

  5. I saw your hair and I had already decided that I was going to comment on how pretty it looks and then realised it was a post actually about hair. I think its really great that someone was able to help you love your hair again. As a woman, I know how important hair is to us all and healthy looking hair especially. I started using extensions last year as well for special occasions cause a lot of my hair fell out from the front because of medication. Its really noticeable cause its super hard to hide without using extensions and also cause my hair is black and you just notice its thickness (or lack thereof) so easily. I love reading about your extensions and wigs and all the thought you put into them. Keep on inspiring!
