Miss Teen USA

Hello Readers,

As you all know I am the PROUD Miss Arkansas USA and Teen USA hair sponsor! I blogged about Helen (miss queen) not too long ago right before she left for Miss USA.... Well today my phenomenal teen queen Lauren Weaver left for the Bahamas today to compete for the title of Miss Teen USA!!! And did I mention it's her 18th Birthday! So today I am gonna talk about what we did to prepare Lauren for nationals! She is required to do her own hair and makeup while she is there! I know... stressful right?

So a few weeks ago we sat down and looked at all her competition wardrobe and talked over what would look best for each phase. Then after narrowing it down she picked styles she felt comfortable doing herself! After a few hair lessons she had it down like a pro. With the help of some amazing Oribe products she will be able to achieve the styles with ease!

We did a full head of Hot Head Hair Extensions back in April and have kept those up all year. But a few weeks ago we put in some super long extensions for nationals! And because of those extensions I sent her with some Hot Heads Shampoo and Conditioner. It is alcohol free which will keep her extensions healthy and secure.

Now for the Oribe products... I sent her with some Soft Lacquer to help with her sets! It gives the hair some tackiness before she curls which in turn will help her curls last longer! It also has a heat protectant in it which will help keep her hair looking healthy in the Bahamas. She also took some Impermeable which is an anti-humidity spray to keep her long locks from getting frizzy! Then she has some Dry Texture Spray and the Dry Soft Conditioner. The texture spray is going to help her get that tousled (not so clean and perfect pageant patty look) look. Think BIG Victoria Secret hair (see picture below)! The conditioner spray is good for frizzy ends. Her extensions don't get the same nutrients her actual hair does so her ends are more likely to have damage and frizziness and this will help!

Lauren and I have spent so much time together in and out of the salon... She is a joy to be around and when the two of us are together there is so much laughter to be heard! This girl loves to be at the salon... she wants to come in even if she doesn't need anything done. I am so excited for her to be moving to Fayetteville soon! I have a feeling she might show up at the salon here and there just to hang out and do homework!
