Festival Must Haves

I’m heading to Chicago today for a blogger conference (follow along on stories!) and I’m pretty pumped because there is a LOT going down in Chi town this weekend. You might have heard about a little thing called Lollapalooza – yeah that’s happening. But one of things I seriously can’t wait to do is pop over to the Bed Head Hotel! Bed Head by TIGI is taking over the hotel lobby at the Hard Rock with a pop-up salon, DJ, giveaways, gifting and more. It’s gonna be bananas and what better way to prep for the festival weekend that with a few touch ups? Catch more details on the invite below and if you’re in Chicago this weekend, let me know. We can get glam together! 

Speaking of touch ups…raise your hand if the summer heat + humidity is giving your locks a un for their money? I may have short surly hair that seems super easy to manage – but let me tell you, it is not. I swear by keeping a little arsenal of products in my bag and I am so pumped to use some of my new faves from Bed Head this weekend. Chicago, your wind can be brutal. 

If you’re not already familiar with Bed Head (they have the super bold + bright packaging that catches my every time i get lost down the hair care aisle), they have a wide range of products inspired by street trends. They’re designed to be blended, layered and cocktailed together – which I love. 


I am obsessed with the Oh Bee Hive Dry Shampoo (love the lightweight finish) and can’t strop using the Masterpiece Hair Spray. If you want a medium hold without the crunchy curls, this combo is for you. I typically finish of my curls with the After-Party smoothing cream…or use the next day after a night of dancing to combat the frizz. 

You can purchase any of the Bed Head by TIGI products above at Ulta! So get to shopping ladies and I’ll see you in Chi Town!
