Red carpet to-do: Hair? Check! #DisneyOzEvent

In just a few short days, I will be walking down the red carpet to watch the world premiere of Oz The Great and Powerful!  I am SO excited….but exhausted!  There is so much to get ready and prepare for a trip like this!  When it comes to figuring out my hair, there is only one person I trust!  Ebonie of Brilliant Hair Studio in Albuquerque.  I’ve known her for…ever and love going to visit her.

Let me explain how my sessions with her go….

  1. Find a picture or idea of what I want and ask her what she thinks.  She will give feedback then set me up an appointment.  
  2. I sit in her chair and tell her to make me look amazing.
  3. She works her magic and then…
  4. I fall in love with it.

Every single time I visit, this is similar.  There have been times that I just tell her to make it look hot and she does it.  I never have a doubt in my mind that my hair will be amazing when she is done.

The best part is, she tells me how to make it look as good at home.  I don’t have to worry about going home and being lost on how to get the same look myself.  I used to hate getting a great style at the salon then having no idea how to get it to do that when I tried to do it the next day.


Here is my before, during and after.  Honestly, I’m not 100% sure what she did, besides lightening it up a bit and adding some caramel highlights….but it is amazing.

Ebonie used some really awesome products on my hair by Milk_Shake.  When she was done my hair smelled just like a shake… is amazing.  My hair was silky smooth and just smelled outstanding.  Later that afternoon my daughter was asking what smelled so good….”oh that’s just worries”

So what do you think?  Am I ready for the red carpet?!  Hopefully my hair likes the humidity out in Los Angeles and doesn’t freak out!
