Lite Brite: Spring Hair Inspiration

Despite the strange shifts in weather, spring is in full bloom here in Atlanta (hello, pollen) and we’re excited to freshen up your tresses! Stylist Jenni Renshaw says collar length; multi-texture hair is hot for spring. Make this “spring breeze blown” look your own in 4 steps.

  1. Set the tone: Use Davines Minu shampoo and conditioner for vibrant, juicy color.
  2. Go sleek: Blow-dry with Davines Melu heat protector spray.
  3. Get styled: Section hair into 1 to 1-1/2 inch pieces. Using a 1-1/2 inch barrel curling iron, start your curl in the middle. Leave the ends out for a tousled, wavy look.
  4. Finish it: Davines medium hold spray gives you soft, flexible hold.

To achieve this stunning shade, we’d use OWAY hair color for an organic, ammonia-free, bold and beautiful red! Craving a little more color in your life? Book an appointment for yourself here.

hang on to summer with evo's salty dog cocktail beach spray

The kids are back in school and the sweltering summer heat is sizzling out. And while fall may be on the horizon, we’re not sure that we want summer to end (yet). There’s still plenty of time to soak up the sun, and whether you do so at a last minute trip to the beach or in your backyard, nothing feels quite as lovely as loose, windblown locks. That’s where evo’s Salty Dog Cocktail Beach Spray comes in.

Comprised of safe ingredients including Magnesium Sulphate (giving your waves that beachy crunch), Hydrogenated Castor Oil (for the tiniest bit of shine) and a handful of other truthful ingredients, the summer spray from our favorite Aussie brand is designed to give your hair what evo calls, “fresh from the beach malleability without having to deal with hostile crowds or riot police.”

And the best part? It’s a lazy girl’s best friend. All you have to do is apply a bit to damp hair, and boom! We can hang on to summer for a little bit longer.

bkr water bottles, our newest obsession

At last, spring has sprung. Days full of beltline walks, swimming pools and patio drinks are so close that we can almost reach out and touch them. The sun isn’t your only pal come warmer days, though. And that’s where our newest obsession bkr water bottles come in. An ode to all things beautiful, bkr water bottles are for the simple, stylish and sustainable, against a disposable world and the chemicals that come along with it. As bkr founders Tal and Kate put it, “We were intelligent, fashion-obsessed, cultured women who were drinking out of cheap, disposable plastic water bottles. It didn't compute, but we were addicted. We searched and couldn't find a reusable water bottle we loved.” But that’s one problem we have no longer. These luxe little bottles are comprised of “clean bubbly glass and soft silicone” and feel more like the catwalk than a campground.

Why’s this so different, though? Well, the bottle itself is soda-lime glass, the sleeve and gasket are made of simple silicone and the cap is of food-grade polypropylene. All of these materials are BPA-free, phthalate-free, FDA approved and 100% recyclable. What’s super cool for the fashion minded is that bkr’s chic collections are released only twice a year, taking cues from fashion week and paying attention to what’s going on for both the bottle and world.

Another one of our favorite things about bkr is that their love of water extends to an overall love of humanity. For every bottle bought (and loved), a portion of proceeds goes to combating the global water crisis as well as the ongoing battle against cancer through organizations Obakki Foundation and Canary Foundation.

Rumor as it that it’s bad news to cheers with water, but we don’t think so in this case. Here’s to bkr! Thanks for making the world a bit more beautiful and for providing our newest (and healthiest) addiction.
