Questions and Care

  1. Can I wash my BELLAMIS? Absolutely, try staying away from shampoos with sulfate in them and use hydrating conditioners! Leave-in conditioners and heat protectants will prolong your BELLAMIS life span.
  2. How often do I wash my BELLAMIS?ONLY wash your BELLAMI Hair extensions when they look like they absolutely need it! As they are not attached to your scalp, they don’t receive the natural oils as our own hair does! So there is no need to wash them as often as you wash your own hair.
  3. How long do BELLAMI Hair extensions typically last?The lifespan of BELLAMIS is anywhere from 3 – 6 months, depending on their usage and how they are cared for and maintained. 

Can I use styling tools on my BELLAMIS?

Yes you can! We always recommend using a heat protectant spray and on a side note some ladies wash them first to take off the vitamin enriched coating.

It’s already getting hot here in Nashville and the long Summer days seem to be hanging around when it hits Memorial Day weekend!

When the seasons change, so should your beauty routine! Below are my Summer must have Beauty products I can’t live without and that I use daily in my routine.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals

Our Philosophy
MyChelle’s scientifically advanced formulas are based on clean, natural bioactives that provide unmatched, professional results.
All MyChelle products are Vegetarian, Cruelty-free, and Free of Phthalates, Parabens, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances and Colors, Petroleum, GMOs, and Gluten.

The MyChelle Skincare Products I’m Using-

Sun Shield SPF 28 Unscented – This clean, mineral based SPF 28 comes in Unscented and Coconut too! I love that it’s lightweight formula absorbs quickly for a smooth, matte finish. Gentle enough for infants too! Bonus. Don’t forget to use SPF year round too!

Remarkable Retinol Serum – This serum promotes healthy renewal and helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles. This feels So good when you apply it on your face. I apply it a little bit before my moisturizer so it has time to absorb! If you aren’t using serums and oils, you are totally missing out. Your skin in the summer needs extra love and protection from past sun damage. It helps with dark spots too which is great since I have a patch of sun spots that have graced me with their presence the last year. Hello 33.

Remarkable Retinol Serum

Perfect C Serum – This Advanced Vitamin C formula packs a powerful punch against fine lines and wrinkles. “A high active level of 17% L-Ascorbic Acid, the only effective anti-aging form of Vitamin C, and Buddleja Plant Stem Cells brighten, protect against photo-damage, and combat the visible signs of aging.” This is actually a yellow/orange tint, so you know its potent!

Zinc it Over Setting Spray + SPF

Protect your makeup And your skin!

You know when a product like “Zinc it Over” comes along, and you are like HECK YES PEOPLE…. These folks are Genius?! Meet Seriously Fab’s awesome facial mist. There are so many awesome things I love about this product. For starters, as a Makeup Artist, having a solid setting spray is Essential. Secondly, it does even more as a safe AND clean SPF 25. But wait! There’s even more! It is packed with delicious Anti-Aging and hydrating ingredients. Need I say more?

I love the Tropical Floral! It smells amazing!

ZINC IT OVER® gives you the power to reapply right over your makeup… this is the elegant NEW way to sunscreen! Our innovative, sheer Zinc Oxide formulation is uniquely blended with some of nature’s finest Phytonutrients and Antioxidants, and contains NO Yucky Chemicals. 

I strive to use clean beauty products and there are so many setting sprays and sunscreens out there that are just plain yucky and filled with chemicals. I love that this product is packed with high quality and safe ingredients!

“Studies showed that our sunscreen — because of the special ingredient in our formulation — was as effective as higher chemical SPF products but without the health dangers!” 

Now you won’t have to worry about either doing a full face of makeup or a bare face to wear sunscreen. Get the benefit of keeping your makeup in place and protecting your skin at the same time!

Zinc it Over comes in 3 different options. Unscented, Tropical Floral, and Citrus Passion! You can also grab all three sprays in a sweet trio package! The fine mist is so refreshing and perfectly even. Be sure to reapply every couple of hours when you are outside to stay protected. It’s the perfect size to throw in your purse and beach bag and is the approved size for travelling too.

Zinc it over is also proudly cruelty free and Vegan! I also appreciate that misting it over your makeup, won’t give you that scary white cast that most sunscreens do. I highly recommend Zinc it Over.

If you sign up for the Seriously Fab Email list you can grab 15% off your first order! Bonus!

Smooth and Tame frizz with L’ANGE

You know it’s coming. The Southern humidity. Even if you aren’t in the South, the heat does things to your hair that can make you crazy. Recently I have been using these L’ANGE products along with their hot tools and it makes the biggest difference. If you hair is dry and unruly, it will not hold a good curl, wave, or smoothness period. Helping protect and setting your hair with good products will allow you to go days with good styling preparation! Good curls are Hydrated curls.

Marula Oil Hydrating mist and Rival Heat Shield

Marula Oil Hydrating Mist

This weightless mist instantly hydrates dry and damaged hair. I love to spray this throughout my hair after styling to add high shine and moisture. “Marula oil is moisturizing, conditioning and has antioxidant properties.” I love that it’s also a UV protectant. So take this delicious hair mist with you to protect your hair when you go outside and on vacation! I Love!!

Rival Heat Shield

If you are getting a hot tool anywhere near your hair, you must protect it first. Rival Heat Shield makes it easy to spritz your hair fast and keeps your hair in gorgeous shape with this protein packed spray! It also serves as a great UV protection for your hair too. To use, just spritz on the DRY section of your hair before using your wand or straightener on it.

“A slew of botanicals, such as calming chamomile, strand-smoothing safflower, and healing jojoba wonderfully integrated with lemongrass and powerhouse antioxidant vitamin E is like getting your daily dose of defense against environmental and lifestyle stressors, plus nourishment, conditioning, and reparative power – all in one super strand-saving spray. Count on keeping your color – and your hair.”

Salt + Sea Spray

You know that dreamy, textured beachy hair that looks straight outta Pinterest? Now it can be yours with the help of the L’ANGE Salt + Sea texturizing spray! This dreamy spray smells amazing and helps give the perfect amount of grip to your curls. *Tip- if your hair is fine or hard to curl, spritz a little on Before you curl to help waves stay!

Get beachy texture fast with the Salt + Sea spray!

“Salt + Séa Texturizing Spray creates beachy windswept styles and adds body to fine hair with a light hold. Infused with kelp extract and sea salt to bring the beach with you everywhere you go. Hair will be left feeling thicker and fuller with added volume and texture. Can be used on wet or dry hair.”

Fall Hair Trends

It is still WAY too hot in Nashville to think about Fall too much ( Pumpkin EVERYTHING is Coming soon! ) I love as the seasons change so do the hair trends! Different methods of Balayage are still going strong and I am seeing a lot more high contrast looks which I love. The depth from a melted root is perfect for Fall and lower maintenance. That way you can still enjoy brightness in the mid length and ends and a pop of light around your face ( also known as The Money Piece.) Of course red tones are always fabulous in the fall as well. Today I’m going to spotlight some of my favorite artist on Instagram and their gorgeous color work! Be sure to check out their pages in the link above each photo!

Going into fall tones tend to get richer and softer. But that totally doesn’t mean you have to go “dark.” You can still do ash tones and brighter blonde but you’ll want to add more depth by either shadowing further down at the root, adding lowlights, or toning for richness for extra dimension. These looks can take several sessions depending on how well your hair colors and the previous colors you have underneath can effect your final lifting level. Keep in mind it may take two to three appointments to achieve a level of depth and brightness you want. In very rare occasions it can take one, but it’s safer to do these looks over time.

Here are some spotlights on these insanely gorgeous looks! BRAVO!
