27-year-old beauty lover from Copenhagen, Denmark - living in Los Angeles.
Educated makeup artist while living in Paris back in 2011 and since then she's had a lot of experience with beauty, both working within the fashion industry and as a freelance beauty expert. She has huge knowledge from the media world, after working as a beauty editor at Danish fashion magazine IN for the last two years.
“The idea with this universe is to inspire and enable knowledge to you readers about everything within the beauty world. When working so intensely with beauty and teaching others for that many years, you have so much stuff you wanna share all the time – because I simply cannot allow to keep it all to myself!”
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.
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.
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.
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!
Do step 2 sektion by sektion.
Don’t brush your hair!
Add a light hairspray that isn’t too sticky.
I love to use Final Fix Hairspray, Ghd, 100 DKK
You can buy it HERE
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.

This is taken after the hair got trimmed and styled. Look at how much lighter the shade is!
Apparently I had a lot of dirt in my hair that made my blonde hair darker. Amazing!
Have you ever wondered if you hair ever gets fully cleaned?
You use a ton of different products during a whole lifetime, you swim in the ocean and swimmingpools, you work out, visit different countries or maybe you have an everyday life in a pollution high city.
Your hair gets so filled with dirt, minerals, accumulations and pollution that sometimes you feel like your haircolor fades away, your hair feels heavier and more greasy – or that all the styling and treatments doesn’t pay off.
I went to Con Amor in Ringsted with the Olaplex team to get a detox to my hair – so I could feel like it was brand new again.
The team is so amazing. Marianne who fixed my hair real good, is an angel when it comes to your hair. She’s one of the most talented hairdressers and stylist that we have in Denmark. She really know her way around any kind of hair.
THE CALIFONICATION TREATMENT
The treatment is a mix between Olaplex and Malibu C. It’s a unique way to detox your hair and create the healthiest looking hair for a long time. It’s based on vitamin C and antioxidants, which will clean your hair from dirt, oils and accumulations. In that way, your hair can get back to normal – like a fresh breath of air .. and suddenly your hair feels light as a feather, the smoothness is back and you got a much healthier looking hair.
My hair got washed with the Un-Do-Goo Shampoo from Malibu C, it cleans my hair from dirt and accumulations.
A gel called Crystal Gel gets carefully added to my hair in sections. This gel improves the quality of my future chemical treatment – which will also save time and minimizes treatments to be repeated, because it makes them last longer. The gel removes minerals, metals, nicotine and other color-blocking accumulations that can feel heavy on the hair.
I was sitting under the heat with the gel in my hair for about 45 minuts.
My hair got washed through with the Un-Do-Goo Shampoo from Malibu C one more time.
Now to the first part of the Olaplex treatment. I get the Olaplex treatment in my hair, during a 5. minut session and after that it sits for another 5 minuts.
Three different treatments from Malibu C called Rehydr8, Rehabiliti8 and Illumin8 gets mixed with the second Olaplex treatment and sits in my hair for about 10 minuts. Step 6.
My hair gets washed with the Blonde serie from Malibu C , blowdried, trimmed and styled.
After my treatment I’ve never had this many compliments for my hair. It has truly been amazing!
My hair feels brand new – like I got to start fresh.
My hair is super soft, specially when I use my Olaplex treatment for home once a week. But most amazing off all is that my hair is super healthy and vibrant again. Over a month after and I see and feel the absolut same result as when I left the salon.
NOW I USE
Un-Do-Goo Shampoo, Malibu C, 110 DKK HERE
Deeply cleans your hair, gets rid of leftovers from stylingproducts and gives back the smoothness and shine.
Blondes Shampoo & Conditioner, Malibu C, 400 DKK HERE
Protects my hair against pollution and envirommental factors. It’s the most perfect shampoo for blonde hair – it doesn’t color it purple, it simply just gives it the perfekt light shade with no yellows!
Olaplex Nr. 3, 280 DKKHERE
I use this between treatments, to make sure that my hair stays the same high quality after getting a salon treatment.
It makes sure that my hair is fully hydrated, strong and healthy.
Really hope you’ll take your time and try out the Califonication treatment, I’ve never experienced anything this great for my hair.
And I can only recommend the Salon Con Amor in Ringsted, Denmark. They’re really know what they’re doing and they make sure to take good care of you and your hair.
So, big news! Some of you may know the Dafni Hair Straightening Brush, the rest of you maybe not.
The Dafni Brush is a brush that can straighten your hair with heat. It’s sounds crazy, I know. But it actually works.
… And now it comes in a smaller size, because the Dafni Go just launched last week!
I love the smaller version, because it’s easier for me to use in my Scandinavian hair.
I won’t write too much about it, instead I’ll let you watch the video, where I had the honor to meet the founder of Dafni, Sharon Rabi. We had a good morning playing with her hairtools – she’s such a sweetheart!
WHY I LOVE THIS?
It’s faster than straightening your hair with a straightening iron.
Your hair doesn’t become flat and boring.
You keep your volume in your hair.
You don’t break or damage the hair with too much heat.
You can make waves with it.
Hope you’ll enjoy the video – and please subscribe!
