Where do you get inspiration for hairstyles and looks?

I get inspired by Instagram. I have so many screenshots of girls I don’t even know who inspire me to try new things or techniques, outfits and photo ideas.

What is your go to style when it comes to hair and makeup?

I like to find what works for me, perfect it, and do it over and over again. For hair, I love to do beach waves with a flat ironed end. I’ve actually had the ghd flat iron in my beauty kit for years. It’s the only one I use and I pack it with me on every trip! (seriously it’s with me in New York right now)

For makeup I like to keep it minimal focusing on an easy cat eye and a matte lip.

What’s the best hair advice you’ve ever been given?

Don’t go to sleep with wet hair! I try to follow this advice but on lazy days I definitely do it!

Who is your red carpet beauty crush?

Jennifer Lopez! She’s never boring and always changes it up. From her gown choice, tanned skin, glowy makeup to her different styles, she always manages to have it all together on the red carpet.

What were your favorite beauty trends at the Golden Globes?

I really love effortless hair. Kate Hudson and Olivia Wilde showed that you can be modern and sexy at an award show but still look put together and youthful.

What were you some of your favorite red carpet looks at this years Golden Globes?

Jennifer Lopez always looks beautiful, she isn’t afraid to be sexy and bold in her hair and makeup choices. I loved Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s fresh makeup and navy dress and even though it had a plunging neckline it was very classy. Kate Hudson looked stunning and I loved her look. She is such a California girl with her beach waves and two piece gown. Gina Rodriguez’s hair was fantastic. I love how voluminous it was and the whole 60’s vibe, I wish I had longer hair so I could pull it off.

Based upon the hairstyles we saw at the Golden Globes what do you think we can expect to see for the rest of award’s season?

I think for Actresses that are presenting or attending we’ll continue to see effortless waves. For nominees, I see them wearing youthful hairstyles that are modern, not your usual up-do.

What are a few key tips for achieving red carpet worthy hairstyles?

Make sure it’s something you feel comfortable in. If it doesn’t feel like “you” than you most likely won’t love the photos.

Your hairstyle should compliment the dress. For instance, I love pulling hair back with a strapless dress to show off the neckline.

Use the right products to ensure your style lasts all night. Start with styling products on damp hair and make sure you finish your look with hairspray.
