On the afternoon of Sunday September 29th I pulled into the parking lot of Tease Color and Hair Design studio in Augusta, GA and saw several familiar cars (other Augusta Bloggers) – I was ready for a fun collab with my blogger babes! I grabbed my bag full of stuff – outfits, make up, different shoe options, jewelry, so on and so forth – swung it over my shoulder and headed across the parking lot to see what the ladies at Tease had planned for us.
The very minute I opened the door to walk in a very lovely and friendly face greeted me by name. Kristin hugged me, fixed me a drink while I unloaded my arsenal of photoshoot supplies, and sat me down in her chair. You know those people that the minute you meet them them you know you could have been friends for years? Kristin is absolutely one of those people for me. While she let her creative powers run wild and worked away at styling my hair, we chatted like we had known each other for years… Binging TV shows, being Moms, and so much more- I honestly could have hung out with her all day!
For the collab I brought my new fave Stevie Nicks rocker tee, and wanted to do a “day to night” styling with it. Kristin curled my hair and began meticulously twisting and pinning up sections of it one at a time. The final product was a super stylish half-up do that could be worn all day while running errands or taking care of business – with the cherry on top being a super trendy triangle hair pin.
My daytime look with my Stevie tee included high-rise and distressed KanCan jeans and Adidas Superstar sneakers with a totally on-trend leopard scrunchy around my wrist and leopard fringe hoop earrings to complete the look.
True story: I sweat my ass off during these first photos. Kristin had to fan my hair dry and dry shampoo the crap out of it before she worked on my next style. I share this only as a glimpse into how unglamorous a photoshoot can actually be, and as a testament to the magic that Kristin can work in her salon chair!
After dealing with the sweat situation, she started going to town with her curling iron, teasing comb, and a slew of different products to give me the perfect rocker-chic evening look!
To switch my Stevie tee to the “nighttime” look I styled it with some **life changing** Spanx faux leather leggings, black leather stiletto booties, amazing silver statement earrings, and a fah-bu-lousss sequin bomber jacket.
I absolutely love the looks Kristin created for my hair – we were so in sync with the vibe we wanted, and I think the hair and outfits came together so perfectly!
I can’t thank the ladies of Tease enough for hosting us. We had a blast, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new regular stylist – or special event stylist. Luckily you don’t have to take my word for it since I’ve got photographic proof!
A special thank you to Samantha at Guillebeau Photo for her amazing photography skills!
Hope you enjoyed this collab recap!
