A DIY haircut that almost gave me a heart attack!

Keyword: youtube, DIY, haircut

I had to watch this with my hands covering my eyes.  As a hair stylist, this is not something I would EVER recommend any of my clients to do.  Are you really that strapped for cash that you can’t afford a haircut?  I understand there are places that way over charge, but I am sure if you do some research you can find a very reasonable salon/hair dresser in your area.  Trust me, this is NOT the way to go!

Set Up Your Trial

Wedding season has begun and if you are like thousands of other girls out there then you are planning and stressing as I type! Here are some tips on booking your hairstylist:


- Begin searching out a stylist about 8-12 months before the wedding. Do not try booking more than a year out.  Most stylists won’t do this. I know for me, my book doesn’t go further than a year and I can’t think more than a year ahead!

- If you already know you are 100% going with a certain stylist then you don’t have to book your trial til about 2-3 months before the wedding. If you do it earlier then you might forget what it looks like, or you could change your mind too many times and end up having more than one trial and spending way too much money

-If you are not sure which stylist you want to go with, book appointments with each of them right away. Maybe have them do your hair for a night out. Choose the stylist that not only does the best job with your hair, but also has the best personality to fit your needs.  You don’t want to clash with your stylist.  This will just add more stress

-When you go for your trial, try to book your dress fitting for the same day.  This way you can view the hair with the dress!

- Bring more than one picture!  Don’t just fall in love with one “updo” You might be very disappointed when the stylist tells you your hair is too short, long, thick, course, thin…etc to handle the style. A good stylist will be able to look at several of your favorite hair pictures and take pieces of each to create the best style for you!


So those are some tips that I hope will help with planning out your wedding hair!  Still don’t have a stylist? Why not let me do your hair!? Visit my site at www.JillianKristine.com

Check out her new buzz cut

Keyword: avril lavigne, skater boi, girl buzz cut

Thank you Daily Mail for yet another great update on our favorite celebs! Avril Lavigne likes to pop in every once in a while and shock us. I doesn’t surprise me all that much as Avril is known for sporting edgier looks.


Her last look with the black on top and blonde on the bottom wasn’t all that flattering. She now has gone back to her caramel blonde, but decided to buzz the side.  This is actually a look that is becoming more and more popular.  I remember when it was cool to buzz the underneath of your hair.  That seemed a little more practical than this look.  I’m not really a fan of the shaved side.  How exactly do you go about growing this out?


Avril, just because I don’t like your hair doesn’t mean that I still don’t love you!  Looking forward to hearing your new album (she’s working on it now…not date yet!)


A diva in the making!

Keyword: mini-me, Meghan

Little Miss Meghan has made it to my blog again! A few months back I posted about how she took the scissors to her own hair…more than once.  Now, here I am to show off how cute my little cousin (or soon to be cousin since she is actually my fiances cousin) really is.   Full Story »

And a happy passover too!

While the easter bunny gets ready to come deliver all kind of goodies to you and your family, I wanted to take the time to wish you all the best holiday weekend!  I hope your time spent with your family and friends adds wonderful memories to your history. Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I always love a good excuse to spend time with close ones, but also…who can resist a good easter egg hunt?! And let’s not forget about the peeps!! Yum, yum!


Now, the Easter bunny must get ready for the big day!


Happy Easter to all!  Have a wonderful weekend.  See you all back here on Monday!!



This is sure to bring a smile to your face

Yes, now make sure you remember that the next time you go to get your hair cut ;)

A great answer to curing a bad day!  Trust me…try it!


Disney princess hair is perfect!  It never moves, and is never out of place.  Ariel spends her days swimming around in salt water and she can comb her hair with a fork without pulling out millions of knots.  This is so unrealistic haha


I feel like I want to put this on my driveway.  Just because I work from home doesn’t mean my driveway is open to my clients to park!  Oiy…crazy people lol


This makes me feel so important, doesn’t it?


Pink in all it’s glory


Keyword: Katy Perry, pink hair

It’s not unusual to see Miss Perry in a colorful array of candy colors. So it doesn’t surprise me to see her hair go from blonde to pinkish purple in a matter of days. Her style is unique, bold, and beautiful.  Pink has been done before by many celebrities; two of my favorites being Pink and Gwen Stefani; but if you can rock it…I say “Go for it!”  Instyle Magazine says that Katy’s inspiration for the new hair color stems from My Little Pony, Care Bears, and her love of all things pastel. I personally love her touch of 1940′s pinup girl influence. She is fierce and not afraid to show it!
