On Monday Jake, our friend Tadd and I filmed this video. Tadd is a scientist and has this crazy camera that films 1,000 frames per second (or something. thats what i overheard them saying), so you can see every little detail of the shot. Usually Tadd films bullets being shot under water so that he can study the fluid dynamics (also what i overheard) and sciency things of that sort, but we decided to focus on hair for the night!

Here is what we came up with!

Here is part two to last weeks video. We played around with these videos at the end and they make me laugh so hard. Sorry if they embarrass you and you have to look away. Haha.

PS if you are having trouble with hair pins, just use bobbi pins in the mean-time. For all you thick haired girls out there, hair pins hold a lot more hair and you dont need as many of them. So get excited for the hair pin tutorial well be cooking up shortly.

Heres a little video shoot I worked on with some awesome lady comedians about a year ago. If youre wondering if we just laughed all day, we totally did.

Do you recognize any (or all) of these ladies from Last Comic Standing? A few of them have their own stand up special on Comedy Central. I did Amys hair for hers two years ago!

I think this might be one of my favorite tutorials to date. This is a style that I wear very often, and youll see why when you watch the video. It can be perfected in a matter of minutes! If I dont get 50 emails with LMSB photo submissions, I dont know what will make you happy, guys. So hairies, Im hoping for 50 photos. Do it!

Here is the long awaited halo braid tutorial. It is the easiest thing ever, just not on yourself! I feel like Im upside down with tangled arms and confused fingers when I do it on myself. But with two mirrors and tired arms I can get it done pretty nicely! Maybe practice on your roommates, friends, wives and children before you start on yourself! Have fun and as always, send me pictures!

Today is day one of our Hairdresser On Fire one year anniversary party! To celebrate we have a lovely tutorial today. This tutorial is for that girl who loves her beach vacations for the awesome hair it gives her. There are many variations of this blow-dry, depending on how big of sections you use. I did pretty small ones on Erin, but you can play around with it and decide what you like best for yourself!

Try it out and send over some photos!
