PINK HAIR DON’T CARE

Location: Los Angeles

Okay. Crazy thing. I colored my hair pink. Like, super pink.
Not permanent – god no, I’m too much of a chicken to do that, but this was a lot for me.
I had the idea after running around Venice all day long, with all these cool, inspiring people who dress how they like and act how they like. So why not try and go a little crazy too? I’m here aren’t I?
Well, I had these cool bottles of spray colors with me. One in a super hot pink color and another in a more babypink color.
To be honest, now that I look back at my little dare, I should probably only have used the baby pink one – it’s much more my style.
The hot pink – is super hot, I felt like one of those super tanned wrestling women you see in TV.
It was a little overwhelming to be honest.
BUT, I liked it. For one day. And then I wanted to wash it out.
On the bottles, it says one-day-color, which means you can just wash it out and have your old color back.
Well, it ain’t that easy. Right now I’ve washed my hair about 5 times in one sitting.
It has faded, in deed – but it’s not gone.
So, I found out that there’s this shampoo that matches the color sprays.
This shampoo should wash all the color out of your hair, so I’m gonna get dressed and drive to Ultra.
I bet they have it – I’ll keep you updated!

*UPDATED
Okay. So I got the fading shampoo and washed my hair 10 times, it didn’t really help.
No I’ve tried the color remover – and it’s still not all out of my hair.
Obviously I’m super impatient, so I guess I’ll just have to wait. And keep calm. Ha!

WEEKLY FAVORITE: A Dry Shampoo That Actually Cleans Your Hair

favorites6When it comes to dry shampoos, there are so many out there – but yet, so little that actually work.
I’ve tried my part, because when it comes to being born with thin, scandinavian hair,
a dry shampoo can become your best friend.
But after getting disappointed over and over again, I’ve been left frustrated with a grey-ish weird texture in my hair
– and a look that I neither can or will controle. Most of the times I looked like a troll and an old lady combined.
Not a very charming look. And certainly not what I was looking for.

But then I found this dry shampoo. The one that changed the game.
This dry shampoo actually cleans your hair.

My biggest dream, was to find a dry shampoo that would let my fine, scandinavian hair last one day longer
– without having to put it into a boring ponytail.

WHAT I DOES

It absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odor
Makes your hair look, feel and smell clean – without a weird smell of cherries or some other berries
(which some brands attend to mix in, for some silly reason)
It gives your hair a fluffy, light feeling – no powder or heaviness on the hair

HOW TO USE

The important – and yet different thing about this dry shampoo, is, that you apply it to roots and lengths.
Then you let it sit in your hair for about 30 seconds.
Now, the trick is to take out alle the grease and oil with your fingers.
You rub your hair between your palms, one section at a time.
When you’re done, look at your hands. All the grease and oil will be on your hands instead of your hair.
Clever right? Now brush your hair through and enjoy another day of clean hair!

No only my weekly favorite, this one has come to stay.
I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.
It has been a savior more times than I can count.

Goodnight,

This is my way of doing it, at I absolutely love this look.

CPHFW SS18│MUNTHE │MY WORK

dsc00547-copy 18146500-bm2 18146890-bmfullsizerender-2 fullsizerenderPictures from Berlingske & Munthe

 

Copenhagen Fashion Week is finally over and I’m chilling on my couch.
Been a couch potato all day long .. cphfw is more exhausting that it sounds.
It’s not all glam and fun, it’s super hard and tiring. Sounds like a spoiled thing to say, right?

Well, first day I worked backstage, doing makeup on all the beautiful models.
I working at the Munthe show, which is an amazing danish brand.
They make such beautiful clothes – it was an honor working with them.

The fashion show was held at the Danish Music Conservatory.
Freja Kirk, a danish performer was singing while the models strode by.
Really well done.

I was doing a beautiful sharp cat-eye, with dewy skin, bushy brows and nude lips.
I was doing makeup on Caroline Brasch, Kim Riekenberg and Ragnhild Jevne.
You can see some of the pictures here.

In honor of Copenhagen Fashion Week I’ve made a tutorial on the look.
It will be up here on the blog and my Youtube Channel tomorrow morning.

SEE MY TUTORIAL ON THE LOOK HERE

Hope you’ll like it.
Goodnight,

BEAUTY SCHOOL: How To Make Beach Waves With a Straightening Iron

The summer time calls for the perfect beach waves and I’m here to guide you how to make them.
I know I messed up a bit here and there – that’s what happens when you don’t use a mirror and only the kamera! Haha.
But it all worked about perfectly great anyway.
Just watch the video or read the step by step here.

STEP 1

Sektion your hair starting from the front of your face and back.
Make a curl in the front piece of your hair by turning the iron away from your face.

STEP 2

Continue next sektion of hair.
Now you wanna start you wave. Start on the mid length from your ears and down.
Start by turning the iron upwards, move a little down the hair sektion and turn it inwards.
Continue until you’re 5 cm. from the ends of your hair – now you wanna go straight down.
Remember not to press the iron too hard!

STEP 3

Do step 2 sektion by sektion.
Don’t brush your hair!

STEP 4

Add a light hairspray that isn’t too sticky.
I love to use Final Fix Hairspray, Ghd, 100 DKK
You can buy it HERE

STEP 5
After your hairspray you can use a texturing clay as I did.
This one really gives you that perfect messy, rock chic kind of look!
I like to clap it into the hair and separate the waves to give it the perfect finish.
Texture Clay, MoroccanOil, 200 DKK
You can buy it HERE

 

I hope you guy liked the video!
