An Easy Half-Up Hairdo!

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not the best at doing my hair! I can watch a million Youtube videos and follow them precisely and yet my hair still never ends up how I want it. Anyone else?! I’ve learned over the years, that some things are best left to the pros! That’s where Parlor Blow Dry Bar comes in handy!

I popped into Parlor in Cameron Village last week to get a blow out and to get an idea of what I might want to do to my hair for our rehearsal dinner! They have so many different options and styles to choose from. I knew I wanted a half-up style, but I let my stylist decide on what would look best with my hair. She worked her magic (while I watched in awe haha!) and I loved the final product. They used some of my favorite products by Bumble & Bumble and also introduced me to a few new-to-me products that will help my hair hold curl and style better.

I ended up getting so many compliments on the hair style throughout the day & I still loved it hours after having it done. I think it’s safe to say I know what hair style I’ll be rocking for our rehearsal dinner. 🙂

If you’re in the Raleigh area, be sure to stop by and check them out! They also can come to you for any event, like a wedding, prom, etc!

      I hardly ever do it half up, but now I’m going to start wearing it this way more. It’s such an easy style to recreate- your hair would look great like this!

  • One of my favorite parts about vacation is being able to relax with a good book in hand 📚🙌🏻 The #navigatoroftheseas has so many peaceful areas to relax, unwind & read a few pages - file that under a success! Admittedly, I didn’t read as much as I would have liked (because there was SO much to see & do!) but I’m glad that I got to read @marykayandrews newest book!
