I had the pleasure to collaborate with one of my besties Erin McGinn. The fabulous photographer, writer, stylist, & editor of the amazing Bliss Publications. Erin and I came up with a concept for my traveling beauty chair. It really came naturally to us. Erin said “hey can I take a few pics of you? I have an idea”, of course I said “yes can I bring my hair chair everywhere we go??” Erin laughed and said “yes, you can say ‘my chair goes everywhere!’” There you have it, my traveling beauty chair went from the private dock on bowens wharf, to Easton’s beach, to Sweet Berry Farm … my chair travels everywhere!
My favorite part of the day was when we set up camp in the wharf outside The Clark Cook House a woman started clapping and said yaaa! we are going to have a performance, and then she asked if I wanted to “borrow” her dog… Seriously there is never a dull moment when Erin and I get together!
Erin and I really love the hunt, that is the hunt for a great prices and a unique find. We are sequin hunters, TJ Maxx stalkers, and vintage store hoarders.

For our first shoot. I went a bit natural. My hair was colored with a ombre effect. If you are unsure what ombre is I do it here at the beauty parlour and you can read about it here on my blog. I then went it with my favorite waving iron to create an effortless beachy tossled wave. (I waved my hair away from my face) Yes effortless quick hair! p.s. feathers were in when we shot this and yes I fully embraced the fad and I admit I miss them. They were so pretty! Check out my hair below
Jennie Kay Hair:
Step 1: Split hair down the middle for a center part.
Step2: Grab you Curling Rod which you check out here if you do not have one to see my fav
Step 3: Section you hair into 3 sections and clip each section out of the way. This is so you make sure you don’t miss any hairs (section in layers and think of a tiered cake; top section, middle section, and bottom section)
Step 4: Wave the hair with the first wrap around the iron away from your face. Continue throughout your whole head
Makeup Makeup Makeu: Now if I haven’t mentioned this shot was for my ads in some publications. I wanted the pictures to really look like me. I love natural makeup, its just my thing, so the makeup I used was very clean and simple.
Ps. The above photo I took in my salon
Step 1: Moisturize!!
Step 2: You can do this in your car like me
Step 3: Conceal under eyes and Blemish with Cargo Cosmetics One base concealor + foundation in one (must have!)
Step 7: Curl lashes first then apply Loreal voluminous mascara start at root and wiglle wiglle wiglle towards tips
Step 8: Smile and add Stila convertible color in gladiola to apples of your cheeks and lightly put on lips
Step 9: Finish with JENNIE KAY gloss in Patty cakes (available for purchase at the beauty parlour)
