How to have the best glitter hair this festival season

paradisebeefI will come right out and say it- I used to loathe glitter. I called it the herpes of makeup. As a makeup artist it was always such a struggle to get it to lay where I wanted. The mediums I would have to mix it with were sticky or runny and I always wished there was something I could have in my kit that would be versatile for photoshoots. Something I could use for photoshoots, but put in the hair or use over body paint. With glitter becoming such a trend in the last year I decided to do something about it and I grabbed a few of my favorite skincare ingredients and got to work. A couple weeks later I felt the base was perfect and started adding tons of glitter and SPACEJAM was born!

The past few months have been so exciting because I’ve been able to see my product grow wings and take off. It’s caught the eyes of some of the best talent in LA and even wound up being featured by celebrity hair stylists at Coachella. I’ve had the luck of speaking to a few of them about what and how they used the products and am happy to share some alternative ways of making your own at home if lemonhead.la SPACEJAM isn’t your…jam…

Here’s two ways to get seriously trendy glitter roots at home:

I. DIY with hairspray and craft glitter via @desiraecherie of @maneaddicts

Products:

  1. Bobby Pins
  2. BLAX Hair Elastic 
  3. Craft Glitter in Very Fine Gold or color of your choice
  4. R+Co Outer Space Hairspray
  5. Ouai Texture Hairspray
  6. Kardashian Beauty Metal Bristle Paddle Hairbrush

Steps via maneaddicts.com:

  1. Spray hair all over using Ouai Texture Hairspray.
  2. Create a center part all the way down the back of the headspace_bun_030-728x517
  3. Brush one section to the top of the head with a Kardashian Beauty Metal Bristle Paddle Hairbrush, and secure with a Blax hair elastic. Repeat on the other section.
  4. Spray each pony with OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray and French lace the hair for fullness.
  5. space_bun_032-728x543
  6. Twist hair down into a bun and secure with French hair pins. Use your fingers to piece the buns out for fullness; leave the ends out for added detail
  7. Spray R+Co Outer Space Hairspray down at roots and sprinkle glitter as desired.space_bun_047-728x505

II. The holy grail of glitter – SPACEJAM by @lemonhead.la

SPACEJAM is a super concentrated glitter pomade that currently comes in 5 different color blends. You can apply it directly with your finger, or for more concentration use a hair color applicator brush or a synthetic makeup brush like Riawna Capri did at Coachella.

Products needed:

  1. Bobby Pins
  2. Small Clear hair bands
  3. SPACEJAM via @lemonhead.la
  4. Hair color applicator brush or synthetic paint brush 

Once you have your product, get creative! You can follow my video above or do whatever you want with it. SPACEJAM brushes and washes right out so you can be as glittery as you want not to mention it’s especially great for one night stands. #sparklepillows

New Contributors to BeautyStyled means more info and more experts!

I wanted to take a moment to share that I’m going to be changing up this blog for the better. Working full time and running a business full time on the side is so much work that it’s hard to find extra time to write for you guys. I have met and continue to meet so many people that inspire me and challenge me in new ways that I want to share them with you! I have a close group of people that are similar to me in the sense that they are professionals and experts in their craft whether it’s skincare, makeup or hair. I have invited them to share their knowledge on beautystyled.com and they couldn’t be more excited!

Lauren Clark is a Celebrity Hair Stylist from Beverly Hills (and my personal hair stylist). She was one of the first connections I made here in LA and is the only person I trust to touch my hair from now on. We have worked on many projects already and she has so much knowledge about hair and health that she is excited to share.

Dena Thurston is one of my best friends and a Regional makeup artist for Trish McEvoy. She has brought so much joy to my life not only as a friend but a partner in business as well. She is from Minnesota but is currently living in St. Louis. She is a stellar makeup artist and her organic recipes and lifestyle tips are just as fab as her skills behind a makeup brush.

Kelly Kossakoski is one of my oldest friends in the biz. She has worked for many different brands and is currently one of the top people at TARTE Cosmetics. We met when I worked for MAC over 6 years ago. She sees life in a way that I am envious of. She finds beauty in everything and is one of the most inspirational and motivating people I know.

These people are my dearest friends and colleagues and while I am very private with my personal life and friendships, I feel it’s best to share these people and their knowledge with you. We all have one goal in mind and that’s to make the world a more healthy and beautiful place, one post at a time 🙂

What the heck am I doing teaching hair?!

Hell has frozen over everyone. I, Megan Dugan, queen of the original sock-bun has a hair tutorial. I learned this style from my new hair guru Lauren Clark, a stylist at Robert Vetica salon located in the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. I have always thought the best red carpet look is long, flowing hair perfectly waved to the side. I’ve never figured it out and always gave myself “mom hair” (no offense to moms), you know, random curls that look like bad homecoming ‘do’s? Curls have never been in my favor and my natural waves make me look somewhat homeless, or like a just released inmate.

The trick to this style is setting the curls, and FINGER STYLING. I never knew about finger styling until recently, and it’s changed everything. To get this trick at home, follow along!
