Self Care with Hair Lab @ Hair Loft

Taking time to care for oneself is so so important and definitely a thing we don’t do nearly enough. But it might not be for time, it might be for lack of inspiration in self care. We think of these activities as being things like baths, massages, or other kinds of relaxation-based activities. But what if self care was doing other things for yourself like taking the time to learn how to do your hair really nicely? Taking the time to practice and eventually be able to do something well and quickly. Sometimes, simply looking your best and having done it yourself is a great way to boost confidence and mood.

That’s the idea with LAB at Hair Loft. This complimentary evening allows  group of 10-15 people to come together and learn how to do their hair three different ways to make styling easy and fun! Through a class and then one-on-one styling time, our group of bloggers left with the ability to achieve whatever look we want quickly and easily. It certainly takes time and practice but the end result is totally worth it!

We focused on three styling techniques:

Round Brushing: This one is your basic blowout. Using the heat of the dryer and the motion of the round brush to get a smooth look with some natural wave and bounce.

Curling: Every kind of curl from Shirley Temple all the way to Adriana Lima on the Victoria’s Secret runway can be achieved with the right tool and a little patience!

Smoothing: Got a flat iron? You can make stick-straight locks or even Jacey Duprie chunky waves with the right technique!

I hosted the event with two of my blogger gals, Allie of Allie’s Fashion Alley and Allison of The Snotty Little Bitch. We has a great time with our blogger friends with some sips and snacks, embracing the ability to look silly while we tried to figure out how to do our hair, and so much more. Want to host your own? Check out the LAB page to learn how.

Concentrating super hard on making Victoria’s Secret curls. Apparently I stick my tongue out when I do that.
