Loving My Hair Right Now

I think there’s something to be said when you’re actually at a point in your hair life where you can say “hey, my hair is looking pretty awesome this week” so, you know, I had to share.  As you guys know, I’m a big fan of Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills and lately, I’ve been frequenting Just Extensions, which I can tell you, as a matter of fact, are the two reasons that I’m loving my hair right now. True story.

The awesome Toyomi highlighted my hair to the light (but not platinum) shade that I love, using a technique called Alchemy.  Toyomi developed the inspiration for her craft in Tokyo, where the world of beauty is exploding with color and creativity. With this vibrant vision, she took on Beverly Hills working with celebs such as Leven Rambin and AnnaLynne McCord.

As for the fullness and volume of my hair, this is where Just Extensions comes in.  You probably read my first post, but just in case you’re not familiar, Just Extensions is an affordable hair extensions bar that focuses on one thing: extensions.  And they have all different kinds, including micro-links, braided sew-in, beaded one-step weft and fusion techniques that range from $100 – $300.  If you know extensions, then you KNOW that’s a pretty amazing price.

Reader Question: How Do I Fix My Color-Damaged Hair?


Hey Jamie!

I recently got blonde highlights (on my dark brown hair) and the colorist used way too much bleach and now my hair is FRIED.  What can I do to fix the damage while the color grows out?



Hi “K!”

Sadly, this happens more often than you would think.  The best thing you can do is give your hair a few weeks tro recover and, in the mean time, use a hair treatment to help restore the health of your hair.  I really love Fekkai Protein Rx Anti-Breakage Treatment Mask since it’s formulated for brittle, broken hair that has been weakened from coloring, relaxing, or heat styling.  If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly option, try VO5 Hot Oil Shower Works, which is also fantastic…and under $10.

Good luck!


Turning heads with Joico Hair Care at a Pre Golden Globe Beauty Bar

Again, I will never turn down a blow out, especially from a brand like Joico.  The Golden Globes, and really ALL of the award shows, means that I will be getting pampered for pretty much the whole weekend…sorry, I don’t mean to brag, but you guys, I live for a good blow out.  Here’s the gossip:

  • Ashley Tisdale chatted with salon stylists about hot boys on Instagram 
  • Shenae Grimes admired her fiancé, played the Joico pinwheel and chatted about how she’s still obsessed with her engagement ring
  • Krysten Ritter looked poised and turned heads while getting her hair styled at Colgate’s Beauty bar with Joico’s Power Spray (which I LOVE)
