It was Joan Crawford who said, “The most important thing a woman can have – next to talent, of course – is her hairdresser.” In my opinion, this couldn’t be more true. I style my own hair on a daily basis but it never looks as good as it does when I’ve just come from a salon. How many times have you had on a fantastic outfit, or flawless makeup, and your hair is just not cooperating? I know for me, it can take a toll on my confidence. Maybe that sounds shallow. Confidence should come from within. Absolutely! But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel like a million bucks when my hair looks awesome.
And it did look awesome last night because of Christin Phoenix. Christin is a sweet born-and-raised Charleston girl who created her own business – The Art of the Blow Dry. She has found her passion in giving women confidence on a daily basis, whether it’s for weddings, bachelorette parties, events, or just a special night out. She enjoys creating beautiful blow-outs and updos because of the, “instant gratification” it gives her customers! The best part is – she will come to your house! Sometimes if I have an event or we are holding a party at our house, it’s just not feasible for me to get in my car, drive to a salon, find close parking (which can be impossible most of the time when you’re downtown), and wait for someone to be ready for me. And then get stuck in traffic on the way home. Christin’s service is fantastic and much needed in the area. She plans to open up her own concrete location in Mount Pleasant in July but will continue to offer in-home services if that better suits your needs. Check out her website for her look book and pricing! You can follow her on Instagram here. BONUS!!!

After Christin was done working her magic on my hair, Ben and I headed to O-Ku for some sushi and sake! I felt like Pocahontas in this outfit! You can shop the details below. <3
P.S. I woke up this morning and my hair still looked and felt fabulous. 😉
This dress is made by the brand Lush from Nordstrom but unfortunately it is sold out. I love this brand though because you can get the best basic pieces for a really good price. However, I found a similar dress at Urban Outfitters though that comes in lots of different colors! I think the cold shoulder style is so great! Sometimes I hate wearing a strapless bra with those completely off the shoulder styles and the cold shoulder cut is the perfect alternative if you want/have to wear a regular bra.
This turquoise necklace is one of my favorite pieces that I own. I am usually drawn to turquoise-colored necklaces (I own too many) but this one takes the cake. It’s a little on the heavier side but I don’t care because it’s so beautiful! Definitely a must-have.
