What color is your hair?
I have a slight Bayalage ombre from last summer. It’s a level 7 I believe. If you are in the Salem OR area, I go to Crystal at Mia Bella salon in Salem. She is amazing!!!
Do you use extensions?
I use Luxy Hair Extensions in Chocolate Brown and love them! This is the exact set I have, I highly recommend them. Even with my long hair, these have enhanced my styling! They are easy to use with clips that slide right into your own hair. I use 2-3 wefts of them when I style them curled. They blend perfectly into my hair length. I especially love using them when I am braiding my hair, I will use anywhere from 2-4 wefts to achieve a full braid style. You can watch how I use them and find all the products I use to style my hair on a daily basis, HERE! I use a 20″ set in the Spring-Summer and a 24″ set in the Fall-Winter. Use code ‘TOPKNOTSANDPEARLS’ for $5 off!
What styling tools do you use?
Currently, I am using a 1″ T3 Curling iron HERE, Bio Ionic Hair Dryer HERE, and a 1″ Solia Flat Iron HERE. I use a round brush, comb. For more information on my hair and to see how I create my looks, check out my tutorial page HERE or my youtube channel HERE.
Hair Care Products?
I am obsessed with trying new and exciting products. Currently, I am loving the Coconut OGX shampoo and conditioner. I use a lot of the Dry Bar products, they have changed my hair during this transition. I swear by THIS hair towel, it is the only thing that has helped my hair dry faster while still keeping it healthy. I keep my products updated on my posts: search BEAUTY on the home page or check out my Youtube channel!
What is your skin care routine?
I take off my makeup with organic jojoba oil. I purchase mine at Trader Joe’s. Recently, I have been taking off my eye makeup with THIS and it has been amazing to take off all my eye makeup without hurting my eyes. I then use THIS face wash and gently massage into my face. Two times a week I will use THIS to gently cleanse and exfoliate. After I rinse my face, I apply THIS onto a cotton pad and wipe over my face and chin. Then I apply a small amount of THIS moisturizer to help with my redness. This has been a skin transforming routine! I struggle with Eczema and acne prone skin, this has been the best balance for me. I hope it is for you as well!
What is your everyday makeup routine?
I have struggled with finding a foundation that has good coverage for my acne scars and current breakouts without breaking out my skin even more. THIS is my full coverage makeup routine, I will be updating it in a couple weeks so stay on the lookout! I have tried a lot of products and techniques, this is the best routine I have found.
