You can skip to 2:30 unless you enjoy the rambles. Here is my review on the Wazor Hair Dryer. I believe it is a dupe for the Babyliss Volare Blow dryer! The Babyliss Volare and the Wazor hair dryer are both similar in size and design and are SUPER powerful! Watch the video for my full, honest review!

How To Hot Roller Your Hair | For Fuller, Big Bouncy Hair With Body

Image
Super old video but still 10000% accurate. Thought I'd reshare this video because this is still how I roller my hair for fuller, bigger hair! As a general rule, the longer the hair the bigger your rollers should be if you are going for fullness and body!

Pink To Purple Ombre Eyeshadow Tutorial Using Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions

Image
I created this light pink to purple ombre eyeshadow look using the Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette and the ColorPop Semi Precious Palette. The Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette is the only Huda Beauty product that I own. From the moment I saw it on the Sephora website, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The palette is very different from colors I would normally gravitate towards but I'll tell you, I gravitated right to it! And to date, it hasn't disappointed yet. The pigment is amazing and reliable. The ColorPop Semi Precious Palette is the same situation, the one and only ColorPop product that I own. If you are a freelance makeup artist, like myself, and you don't have the ColorPop Semi Precious Palette.. let me tell you that you NEED it. I rarely create looks without using a color from this palette. I honestly can't remember what I was even using for the past 12 years of makeup artistry before I added this into my collection. Both of these pal

Joico Color Butter Color Intensity Review.

Image
I received the Joico Color Butters as a sample with purchase. Before trying this product, I looked up reviews.  I saw that some people raved and others complained. I didn't bother to read the complaints because I figured, if you are complaining about it you probably just didn't use it correctly. Obviously I skimmed through the reviews in more of an effort to waste my time than to actually gather useful information. Just by looking up the product you can see what the use is for.... "Joico's Color Intensity Color Butter is an ultra moisturizing hybrid to amp up the richness of high-beam hair color or add a pop of color to blondes who want to shake things up. Formulated with Joico's state-of-the-art technology, including restorative Arginine, and powerful Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex to strengthen and repair hair. Color Butter is designed to fuse fun and fashion with serious care." - Ulta Beauty website "Deeply moisturizing — it actually chills out dama

Easy DIY Bridesmaid, Prom, Bridal or Special Event Hairstyle

Image
Since I changed my YouTube schedule, I decided to dig in the archives and re-share some older videos. Some of my older videos are undoubtedly cringe worthy but some of them just never got the recognition they deserve. Since wedding season is in full swing, who am I kidding, wedding season is literally ALL -YEAR- ROUND... I thought I'd re-share this video of this easy and simple DIY bridesmaids hair style. This look would also be great for prom on a budget or any other special event you had in mind! This simple but elegant look is so versatile. Sometimes I even wear it to work when I want to feel extra classy.  Wear it with your favorite earrings and/or your favorite necklace. You won't be disappointed! Until next time, work hard, dream big, eat cake. xoxo Erika www.ForlinisBeautyBar.com https://www.amazon.com/shop/erikawithak

How To Brunette to Blonde | Hair Color

Image
I am so excited to share this video with everyone! Here is a hair color tutorial on how to create a dimensional blonde with highlights and lowlights on a natural level 5 brunette without having to base break. For the technique, I used a weaving and teasing method. Exact placement and pattern can be found in the video. Exact formulas used are below and can also be found in video... I  exclusively used all L'Oreal Professional products.  H/L: L'Oreal Professional Blond Studio Powder with 20 Vol. L/L: 1/2 901s + 1/4 .2/v + 1/4 .12 Majirel 20Volume Toner: 1/2 .12 + 1/4 .22 + 1/4 .11 Majirel 20 volume Level 5 brunettes tend to pick up very warm so I used blue and purple bases to help negate any unwanted warmth. The technique and lowlight formula allowed me to blend the natural level 5 base. This technique and formula allows for a better blend and lower maintenance. When the hair grows there will not be a defined line of demarcation. I always shampoo cool blondes with the

I decided to do this look again with my shaved head. I hope you enjoy this little clip! xoxo Erika www.ForlinisBeautyBar.com https://www.amazon.com/shop/erikawithak
