The essential salon day at Karma

IMG_7750I have yet to share all about my hair. I have been going to Karma Salon in Old town Scottsdale Arizona for a little over a year now. You will not find a more energetic team and relaxing but still upbeat atmosphere to get your salon fix! The layout makes everyone feel like they should when they enter any salon, taken care of. Many of my friends who have gone have said the same thing. Knowing that the stylists care about your look is what creates this successful salon. Visit their site :karmasalons.com/

Their focus is on green products. Your hair, spray tan, and nail treatments will all be taken with great care. Not only that but you can get your makeup done as well. Having a down to earth salon that does it all is hard to find. Everything from products and service all bring together a “vibe that brings good karma.”

What I was hesitant to try was spray tanning and bleaching my hair. I knew I was good hands and felt comfortable to be able to experiment and have fun with hairstyles. Bleaching my hair in an form has always concerned me but Karma uses Oleplex as well great organic products. One of my favorite the salon introduced me to is Neuma hair-care products!

Spray tanning at Karma is actually a great air bush tanning technique and the consultants will make you feel extremely comfortable. I never thought I needed to try out spray tanning until I went for it! I was left with a natural beautiful sun kiss glow to add some color and life back into my skin.

 

Karma Salon in Scottsdale truly provides all the essentials of a salon day!

Hair & Makeup touchup done  at Karma Salon

I have been slowly going blonde for a year now, my goal is to be an ashy cool tone blonde but still trying out other looks a long the way.  I just recently cut and lightened my base. I got bangs and added lighter blonde pieces to my balayage thanks to my hairstylist Josie at Karma salon! She recently bumped up the base so I do not have black roots making it into a soft brown still with a cooler tone and ashy balayage. In my balayage Josie also added in low-lights to break it up which creates the blend from my roots through out my hair.

My current hair, just freshly done for a new Fall look!!

 


Here are some picture of a few of my friends who had a great experience at Karma Salon and can be seen through their fresh hair styles!

 


My friend Vanessa actually just got her hair done a couple months ago and I came along to see the transformation! She got a cut and color and now has a stunning full hairstyle.

My dress is from Joie! It has the perfect amount of detail in it, I love the print and fit. My  favorite part is the tie detail, you can wear tied or untied. I also love pairing this dress with booties. My favorite to pair is the Dalton from Joie in the color Whiskey.

Summer Reds

Too long of a break, I know. I still have great plans and ideas in the making, but finally am back to blogging!

IMG_7880I wanted to share an outfit of the day with a beautiful floral printed summer top from Rebecca Taylor. I was not a fan of red until this summer, and would never want to have a red and blue mix print until I fell in love with this top! The detail of the mixed metallic silk and tie-sleeve detailing is gorgeous.

I paired the top with white skinny jeans from AG jeans and folded them to show off my sandals. The sandals are light and dark blue lace up leather sandal from Joie.

Thank you everyone for supporting me and hope you enjoyed this summer outfit post! I am way to ready for fall to come. I mean, it was only 104 degrees today in Arizona, so its starting to cool off (hey, anything under 110.. we will take it!) Are all of you ready for fall?

Rag & Bone Marcy Dress

Here is an OOTD post for a finally breezy day in the fall. Arizona just had a small earthquake this past sunday, and now it is actually cool outside?! Hmm, what is going on? Anyways, Here is a layered neutral look featuring my favorite suede skirt from TjMaxx. I have always been a fan of suede but this skirt has become my favorite. Yes that is a stain on it, because I just dropped salad dressing on it during lunch..did not notice until this picture!

I am pairing this old light sweater top from Forever 21 on top of the skirt and tied it at the end. This just added a little bit of depth and chunky-ness to the outfit. This is not a vest, but it is a button down tunic, that I opened up and wore as a vest. I paired some black suede knee high boots from DSW. To top it off I added some pieces from my Rocksbox!
