This past December I was given the amazing opportunity to fly out to New York for a fabulous makeover experience with Wella Professionals and ELLE Magazine. I was pampered all day by some lovely people who are truly at the top of their game. Everything about my day with Wella Professionals and ELLE was spectacular and exciting and we all had so much fun together!
I had the pleasure of having Wella’s Eric Lindsay give me a hair makeover, and he flew in all the way from Texas to New York to do my hair! He is one of the Top Artists with Wella, and so I knew I would be in good hands. It was a little bit nerve-wracking for me since I’ve only ever had my hair done by my mom, who is a hair stylist. But from the moment I sat in Eric’s chair, he made me feel calm and comfortable. I wanted to take advantage of this opportunity and do something different with my hair, since I’ve mainly stuck with brown and blonde shades up to this point. I was feeling a little bit edgy, and I trusted Eric immediately, so we decided to add some lavender to the ends of my hair! He used a technique called Balayage, which is a super cool and on-trend way of adding highlights that mimic the look of ombre. The whole process seemed to fly by as I flipped through the pages of ELLE while Eric did his thing.
I was so happy with my new look and how soft and luxurious Eric made my hair feel. After my hair was colored and dried, another amazing Wella Top Artist, Michael Hasse, cut and styled my hair, according to the popular “undone” hair trends that are easy, time-sensitive, and look hot and effortless. He showed me how to transform one hairstyle into another so effortlessly, taking me from work to a night out in a pinch. I can’t wait to share more with all of you on how Eric and Michael worked magic on my hair, and how easy it’d be for you to do the same!
After my cool rockstar-esque hair makeover and styling, I played with some different wardrobe options and we all went out to explore the beauty of New York City. ELLE provided so many cool pieces for a photo shoot that I couldn’t help but change a few times! We had so much fun walking through the city, taking pictures and showing off my amazing new look.
I am so thankful to Wella Professionals and ELLE Magazine for giving me such a glamourous experience in New York City. They helped me step out of my hair comfort zone and gave me a look that incorporated so many cool hair trends. Stay tuned for some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and how to videos from my makeover, and to learn more about Wella Professionals and their hair artistry!
