Very Hairy

Cate Mezyk - February 25, 2016

I got my hair done on Tuesday. It was yet another reminder that I am slowly losing my mind. And that sometimes, you just have to laugh at yourself. So I get my hair done (thank you Emilie!), head to the front to pay… and realize that I don’t have my wallet. Because my wallet is sitting on my kitchen counter at home. So I …

Trend Alert – The Deep Side Part

Cate Mezyk - November 10, 2015

At the end of the summer, I went for a change, and chopped several inches off of my hair. I went from this, to this. It was a big switch. But big switches are kind of my thing. Now, I love changing my hair. I’ve been everything from dark brown to bright blonde, red, and everything in between. I have no fear of changing my …

Repair your hair

Tammy Hiveley - July 3, 2014

Summer brings many fun pastimes; swimming being a MAJOR one! Summer in Minnesota especially.  We hibernate {well, I do at least!} 6 long months of the year.  Any chance I can get to enjoy the sun and water, I jump at it!  Pool time is a constant.  Down side:  Sun and chlorine damaged hair.  Yuck.  Then, like prayers were answered, I was given this new …

Why can’t I be a mermaid?

Tammy Hiveley - June 12, 2014

Remember her? This is the first time I crimped my hair.  Daryl Hannah in Splash made waves in the hair industry, lit-er-ally.  Every little girl I knew wanted to be a mermaid.  Madison even became the ‘play’ name of choice!  Did I just date myself?… and not in a good way!  Darn. The kinky locks trend came and went but guess what?!  They’re back for Summer 2014! I’m …

Tammy Hiveley - May 2, 2014

We are wild about Lifetime Fitness. We use every part of this club.  The equipment, the group classes, the child center, the pool, the hot-tub, the sauna, the LifeCafe, the LifeSpa. My LifeSpa stylist, Emilie and I were chatting it up during my last highlight and we decided it would be a great idea to bring their services to YOU!  … Then after the A-ok from the salon manager, …

Wild About You

Cate Mezyk - October 4, 2013

As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you haven’t do so recently, stop reading right now, and feel yourself up. If you can’t find any lumps, you can continue on. My grandfather had breast cancer years ago (yes, that’s grandFATHER), so it’s an issue that’s close to my heart. Though he was cured, it means that the women in my family have …

Oily Hair

Cate Mezyk - September 5, 2013

When it comes to my hair, I’ll try just about anything to attain the perfect mane. It might seem counterintuitive to dump a bunch of oil on your locks, but hair oils were designed to be used as a conditioner, styling tool, and finishing product. It’s basically like a bottle of magic for your head. My stylist turned me on to MoroccanOil a couple years …
