I’m loving this shape shift dress from The Style Club LA! It’s simple, lightweight, and a little edgy. The leather sleeves add a little spunk to the classic black and white dress. In this look, I added some more edge by accessorizing with silver dangly ear cuff. The brown and black color blocking also emerges again in this look with my two-tone flats and vintage leather bag. I’m excited to wear this dress out to happy hours and dinners with friends! Thank you to the #TheStyleClubLA for sending me this wonderful dress!

Here it is! My first ever Emma’s “Hair” Edition. I’ve been getting request on how I style my hair everyday, so I’m sharing with you today how I get my everyday curls.

First, let’s talk about the three things you need. The wide tooth comb, heat protectant spray, and the curling iron. Here’s my three essentials:

 TRESemme’s Thermal Creation: Heat Tamer Spray

 The Wide Tooth Comb: use a wide tooth comb to detangle and smooth out your hair. It’s much gentler on your hair than a brush.

 1 1/2 Inch Conair Curling Iron. I also use a 1 inch barrel as well!

Step 1: Embrace your natural hair.

Take your vitamins, avoid overusing your blow dryer, and make sure you eat enough fruits and vegetables. Having a good diet not only helps you feel better, also helps your hair shine!

Step 2: Spritz your hair with the TRESemme Heat Tamer Spray.

I usually flip my hair upside down and spray my hair between 4-7 times.

Step 3: Come through your hair to spread out the Heat Tamer Spray evenly.

Step 4: Clamp the curling iron in the middle of your hair.

Step 5: Curl your curling iron towards your head- to produce outward curls. Hold the curling iron in between 10-30 seconds. You can hold the curling iron in for longer to get tighter more defined curls. But for everyday curls, the most I’ll hold in the curling iron is 1 minute!

Step 5: Loosen the grip of the curling iron and bring it down towards the end of your hair.

Step 6: And bring the curling iron towards your head. Hold the curling iron again near your head for 10-30 seconds. Repeat steps 4 through 6 throughout your entire head.

And ta-daaa! You are finally done and ready to rock everyday loose curls!

I hope you enjoyed my first “Hair” post on Emma’s Edition! Thank you for reading 🙂
