So, You Want Icy White Blonde Hair? Here’s How It’s Done.

Hi blondies! Life is more fun, right? So, a lot of you have been asking me how I get my hair so icy white blonde. I mean, I get it, it’s *coolest* color around (if u catch my drift). After responding to 834234 DMs, I decided it’s time to write a blog post. ;P First, let’s get…

    On Insta you said this is for non-natural blondes – is it an easier process for natural blondes? I’m a “dirty blonde” (lol aren’t we all tho) and when my hair darkens some I’ve considered going lighter blonde eventually! ❤️SavReplyCancel

    • AnnaAugust 28, 2018 - 5:31 pm

      Yes! Oops – I didn’t mean this is for non-natural blondes – I just meant that my hair isn’t naturally this WHITE ;P. The lighter your hair is, the easier it is to take it lighter (and the easier it is to maintain cool tones). You’ll also do much less damage to your hair!ReplyCancel

    Anna – You are totally my hero!  I graduated uni (in UK) but when I get older I want to be exactly like you, like literally exactly like you!  I’ve been planning to run my own insta / blog lifstyle brand as well, a UK version.  I’ve been dreaming about quitting my job and moving to London but I’ve been looking at the numbers about monetization on insta and I can’t seem to get the math to get close to working.  Like how do you afford your LA flat and lifestyle and everything given that you don’t have like a million followers?   ReplyCancel

    • AnnaAugust 29, 2018 - 8:24 am

      Hey girl – how exciting!! I can’t wait to hear about all you accomplish. As far as monetization goes, keep in mind that I had a career before B/B and social media is just a part of my business (and for a while, I only made money from coaching!) Also, part of being an entrepreneur is staying scrappy and sacrificing “lifestyle” while you build your business. Happy to chat about all the different revenue streams if you fill out the form on my coaching page. Best of luck to you!ReplyCancel

    I noticed you put the formula as Redkin shades chart doesn’t have GI and GV. The toner chart is a mix of numbers and letters.  Can you find out which ones she uses?ReplyCancel

    Your Complete Guide To Botox (& Botox-Shaming)

    I GET BOTOX. Is that a big deal? Is it taboo? Is it vain? Not to me. I’m not writing this post because I think you should get Botox; that’s a personal choice. I’m writing this post because most people don’t talk about Botox… or worse, judge others for getting it (especially in the corporate…

      This is by far the best blog post I’ve ever read. Thank you so much for always keeping it real! I’ve kept my botox from my own friends because of comments I’ve heard them make about other women – and it makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong. I’m a little closer to “coming out” with my botox! Thank you!ReplyCancel

        Thanks so much for this Daniela. Here’s to celebrating REALNESS!ReplyCancel

      omg, i had so many questions and you just answered all of them. i’ve been too scared to ask anyone else! i just made an appointment for my first botox treatment next week 🙂ReplyCancel

        Kate – I’m so glad I helped answer your questions! If you have any more, just let me know, I’m an open book 🙂ReplyCancel

      Hi Anna,

      Thanks for posting! What was your process for finding your doctor? And what made you feel comfortable wth the doctor you chose?

      • AnnaMarch 9, 2018 - 5:27 pm

        Hi Samantha! I went to Yelp and scoured the best reviews – then I checked them out on Instagram! A lot of docs have amazing before/afters and videos on there. If you’re not 100% sure, just go for a consultation (that’s what I did at first) – and then you can decide if you want to move forward or keep looking. Good luck! <3 AnnaReplyCancel

      Hi Anna! Thank You for writing this awesome article and for all of the great information. It was hard to find info about this when I was considering getting Botox! I’ve had Botox twice and am so happy with the results! I was over the way my makeup settled in the lines on my forehead and felt like my 11s were making me look angry. I have 3 friends (that I knew of..why such a secret?!) that had it and loved it! I had a consultation and went for it! I didn’t want to “look” like I had Botox, just smoother and natural. I look and feel so much younger than 48, wish I would have done it 5 years ago! Now the way I look matches how I feel inside. And totally agree.. Go to a reputable plastic surgeon, NO Groupons. You are worth it! ReplyCancel

      • AnnaMarch 26, 2018 - 10:05 am

        YES! Good Botox doesn’t LOOK like you HAD Botox… that’s kind of the point – but so many people overdo it! So happy to hear you made the right choice for you! xx AnnaReplyCancel

    • BrookeMay 30, 2018 - 6:36 pm

      I love that you shared this! I just now found your blog and I actually got Botox for the first time 5 days ago (24 units lol). I don’t know why everyone is so damn secretive about it! It’s literally the first thing out of my mouth when I see my family/friends and they are always super excited (and jealous ha). ReplyCancel

      Botox injection is a type of treatment is quite popular in the world of beauty. I always read the Botox injection information, many do it and get good results. Most people are afraid to do Botox injections, but I think it’s fine because to get a better face we need to do something. It’s always a motivation for me to do anything. Thanks for the experience you shared here. amstelzijdekliniek.nlReplyCancel

    • RanAugust 12, 2018 - 6:02 pm

      Thank you for sharing the Botox experience here. I always want to do Botox because all who use Botox always get good results for beauty. I have fine lines and wrinkles in my eyes, maybe I am too stressed out working. My age is easier than you, Anna. I became unsure about getting it because I was afraid that many would consider it too early. amstelzijdekliniek.nlReplyCancel

    • Mary B.January 25, 2019 - 9:25 am

      The real challenge is not admitting that one uses botox, but to allow oneself to look like a human being, rather than a purchased rubber sex doll.  ReplyCancel

    Subscription Addiction: Box of Style by Rachel Zoe

    Call it narcism, but I never buy subscription boxes because I don’t think anyone can curate a collection of (usually v random sample sized things) better than I can for myself. I like my own taste best. Duh. There might be one person that can do it better though – and that’s Rachel Zoe. When…

      I am apprehensive to use anything that says “oil” on my face since it is prone to breakouts. The hydrating oil seems to be a great product! Any tips as to if it will be good for oily, acne prone skin?ReplyCancel

      • AnnaDecember 24, 2017 - 11:54 am

        Hey Mikaela! For you, I recommend using a hydrating toner instead! This is a great one: Glossier’s Super Pure is also my go-to for breakouts: Good luck and lmk how it goes! – AnnaReplyCancel

    • StephanieFebruary 14, 2018 - 11:33 am

      I got my box a little late, but I love it!  The earrings are FAB!!   And I surprisingly love the Hydrating Oil.  I’m not much of an oil person, but it’s so light!  The agenda is perfect, but I committed myself to going digital this year, so I’m hoping to pass it on to a friend!
      This is my first visit to your blog, but I love it!  Cheers!ReplyCancel

    • RachelMarch 27, 2018 - 3:43 pm

      The box was great, but I had SO many problems with billing, shipping, and customer service that I don’t think I’ll be doing it again. The hassle of dealing with their customer service makes getting this box a lot less fun.ReplyCancel

        OH NO! Thanks so much for sharing this Rachel – definitely good to know. NOT the experience you want when you’re treating yo self!ReplyCancel

    How I Get My Waves (Step-by-Step Hair Tutorial Video)

    You know that bad hair day feeling when you’re all pissed at your hair like, “Fam, I grew you. How dare you betray me? Go to your bun. You can come out when you’re ready to slay.” I know I’m not the only one whose mood is heavily dependent on how good my hair looks….

      I have been apprehensive about using a curling wand since I am not even too familiar with using a curling iron (I typically use a hair straightener to curl my hair). Can anyone provide some insight as to how hot the suggested wands get? I have naturally curly hair that i straighten (to then curl, again). Would any of these items work for my hair type? ReplyCancel

      • AnnaDecember 24, 2017 - 11:56 am

        Def get a ceramic one. The Drybar one I linked to above should also work really well! You’ll probably want to stay around 400 degrees. Good luck!ReplyCancel

      How long does it take in total (starting from dry hair)? The video is about 10 mins but how long do i budget for the overall process?ReplyCancel

      • AnnaJuly 23, 2018 - 7:40 pm

        Hi love! It takes me 5-10min to do it once my hair is dry – but I’ve had lots of practice! I also have a lot of hair. When you’re first starting I’d say it takes about 15min 🙂ReplyCancel
