JZ Styles Hair Extension Colors
Long before the JZ Styles Hair Extension line existed, the people and inspiration behind the names were making a big impression on Jessi. We're taking you through all 29 colors and telling you about the people and dogs behind the names!
Jamie Dana: The Business Glow-Up
We're back with stylist and social media ninja, Jamie Dana! She is a hairstylist turned business owner and helps other stylists build a business and life they love using Instagram. She's kind of a big deal and has grown her brand through Youtube, Instagram, and online courses. She's dropping her knowledge here and letting us in on all her secrets to growing a thriving brand online!
Talking Taylor: Speak Now
It's October, which is almost Halloween, and that means it's basically Christmas - and we are cruising through our Taylor discography! We're talking about Speak Now, Taylor's 3rd album and one she wrote entirely by herself. We all know Taylor is in the middle of re-recording her albums and releasing them in their original intended glory (RED is dropping in November) but for some reason, Speak Now is getting skipped over. (1989 will be next). However, this album was one of her most pivotal and one that meant something different to each one of us. Listen along as we discuss the album notes, songs (and words) to live by, and why Speak Now is an album that will forever go down as our favorite.
We may not be experts at everything but we're here to give you our opinions (and hopefully some sound life advice) regarding all of your biggest life questions! From letting go of the bitterness of divorce and dating must-haves to our least favorite things about each other and what TV show Stew wants to live in full time. It's good stuff! Tune in and hopefully, you'll snag a little wisdom along the way!
When someone asks you "What's your sign?" it's more than likely they're asking you to share your sun sign, which indicates where the sun was located when you were born. And for a lot of us, that's as much as we know about astrology. So today we're giving you a crash course in all your personalities with our friend Bailee Pili @baileepili. The realm of astrology can appear vast and daunting. Luckily, there's an entry point to be found for even the greenest beginner. So buckle up, call your mom to find out what time you were born, and then get close because we're about to explain why you are the way you are - and if everything you manifest today was written in the stars!
Easily our most exhaustive topic, assisting is the reality of our day-to-day in the salon. It's where Stew started and it's really where a hair stylist's journey begins. They are your right hand - they style, wash, dry, ready supplies we're going to use on a client - and their responsibilities grow as their talent and skillset increase. We're sharing what our assistants do, the behind-the-scenes of our very well-known assistant program, and everything you need to know about hiring or becoming an assistant.
