It’s a busy season for fashion! We just wrapped up NYFW, and here comes the Red Carpet Runway Show (aka the Oscars) – the social media lines will soon be buzzing with who wore who and how! And what’s every star’s most critical red carpet accessory? Hair, of course! Jewelry, shoes, handbag… none of these can make or break a look quite as completely as a coiffed curls or a disastrous ‘do. Thankfully, on today’s show, we have a representative from one of the best international hair care schools to educate all of us on sane manes.
Dell Miller is a Director of Education and Haircolor Purefessional for Aveda, an international company dedicated to natural, plant-based methods for hair and skin care. Aveda has been a pioneering force in the sustainable style movement – long before the term “sustainable” was even coined, they were working with organic farms and recycled packaging, in a conscious effort to match principles with practice. Dell has become a distinguished leader in haircolor design and education for the company. He just returned from NYFW himself, where he sculpted hair for several top designers, including Betsey Johnson and Nahm. On today’s show, Dell will talk about his training with Aveda, what makes their philosophy unique, his experiences at NYFW, and what he *really* thinks of the ombre look.
Plus, an amazing playlist today packed with great new music! I could barely fit it all in, but I made some tough choices and got the best of the bunch. There’s new music from Tim Fite, Brian Lopez, WhoMadeWho, La Sera, and even some .fun! So stick around, and get ready to dazzle your friend’s Oscar party crowd with some red carpet-worhty locks!

Get Beach Baby hair with Aveda Products
Here are a few of the products that Dell mentioned in the show, along with some of my personal faves. Do you use Aveda? Which of their products is your go-to?
This is my favorite from the Aveda Style Prep collection that Dell was talking about – it keeps my frizzball hair looking curly and soft! There are several other great items in the collection for straight and color treated hair as well.
The Light Elements Smoothing Fluid is another great taming product, that will help keep fly-aways in line without looking sticky or stiff.
Whether curly or straight, up-do or down, Control Force will keep the style you want going all day long.
