Saturday Beauty Day:
Gerri Styles My Hair Edition
Welcome to my first blog entry for Saturday Beauty Day! Today this is the day I do reviews on beauty products for hair, make-up, skin care and so much more! This edition is called "Hashtag" Gerri Styles My Hair. My personal hair stylist Gerri T. Vereen is an amazing stylist and we have a fun and creative relationship. She is creative, driven and talented. She keeps my hair looking brilliant!
Now that I work around the clock it's harder for me to get to the salon at the frequency I used to go. I approached Gerri with the idea of blogging about the great hair tips she gives me in between my visits. The idea was born and here we are! This week's tip I asked Gerri how can I achieve the beach wave look now that summer is over. You see, I really love the beach and my beach hair is sexy and on the nights I go out for a fun night on the town I want to achieve a sexy and cool look with my hair. You know, a little messy and effortlessly chic. Well Gerri gave me these tips based on two vintage divas that did it so well back in the day. I wanted to have that cool, edgy and sexy look like Janet Jackson and Jody Watley.

1.Gerri says to start with sectioning the hair. If you have very long hair part it in quarters. For medium length hair part in smaller sections.
2.Once you have sectioned your hair you can spray your hair with a very light holding spray. Hold the stray 8 inches away from your hair. Be sure not to saturate your hair with any product before applying heat. Be sure to also use a heat protecting spray to hair before beginning.
3. Next take small pieces of the sectioned hair and use a wand or a 1/2" or 1" curling iron and wrap hair around the barrrel.
4. Once your done "finger comb" your hair and apply a light mist of light holding spray....and Voila! Sexy, Beach Waves ANYTIME!
