So it’s the beginning of the week, let’s start off right…with a good hair day!
When I take the time to take care of my hair, I always feel put-together, as if i’m presenting the best version of myself. Something so simple gives me a sense of empowerment. When I know I look my best, I know I am projecting confidence and poise. Hair is universal, it is by no means just a lady thing, women might don more hair but it is still the most noticeable accessory on a man as well, why not make it a power tool. Win-win if you ask me, healthy hair and a confident swag…..game on! The only issue is, I don’t know how to do hair the way I like it but there is a solution for that…

I bet you didn’t know Kansas was the sunflower state?!
Don’t worry, neither did I 🙂
Kansas is a place I would have never predicted packing my bags and flying to. Being an Angeleno, my only reference to Kansas, sadly I know, is the Wizard of Oz. Wait, wait, before the Kansas natives kill me for saying that I would love to share with you how I no longer have those stereotypes! I mean, don’t even tryyyy and tell me you have no stereotypes for Los Angeles….see we’re even then 😉

About two weeks ago Smart is Sexy worked on a new project collaborating with a wonderful photographer – Shaun Honda.
Shaun Honda is a lifestyle photographer with a beautiful method to capture the natural movement and expression through his lens. It’s raw, it’s fresh and non inhibiting. He’s flawless in professionalism and conduct. It was so much fun working with Shaun, I think I freaked him out more times than once, sorry Shaun! haha but I adored working with him, if you get the opportunity that he approaches you to collaborate, I would suggest you say YES or YES or YES!

Sometimes our hair needs a little TLC, more than the ordinary shampoo, rinse, deep conditioner, satin pillowcase…I’m talking about some fruits and veggies!!!
Whaaaa????? No i’m not drunk, I wrote that right. Guys can do this too, but hair long enough to pass your ears really benefit from it the most, so gentleman- with those gorgeous manes this is for you too, I’ve seen you! I don’t know where you are hiding but listen up too!

Sometimes you have to remember why you got started in the first place– get to the core of why it all began.
Get back to the basics— and let your body/mind/spirit talk to you.
