- Introduce yourself, what do you do?
My name is Brooke. I’m a college student in Denver, Colorado. I’m studying public relations and I hope to someday have my own PR firm that specializes in makeup and beauty brands. When I’m not in school, I work as a barista at Starbucks.
- What’s your favourite thing about your work?
My favorite thing about working at Starbucks are my partners. I love everyone I work with…they make every day of work so worth it!
- Are you natural or relaxed (is that your natural hair colour and texture)
I have changed my hair color so many times! My natural color is dishwater blonde and right now my hair is black with some caramel peek-a-boo highlights. My natural texture is somewhat wavy, but I usually straighten it.
- What are your go to products?
My go-to hair products are Living Proof Fresh Cut Split End Mender, OGX Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil, and Marc Anthony Argan Oil of Morocco 3 Day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Smoothing Cream (whew, such a long name).
- What is your all time favour hairstyle?
My all-time favorite hairstyle is half up with a little volume. So cute!
- What are your 3 top hair care tips?
My top 3 hair care tips are only wash 2-3 times a week, a little product goes a long way, and if you have colored hair, never buy products with parabens, phosphates, or sulfates.
- Do you have a hair routine?
I only really have a hair routine after I wash it. One of the things I always do is use conditioner on my ends and THEN shampoo. My hair always comes out softer this way (learned this one from Huda Beauty). After this, I use my split end mender, leave-in conditioner, blow dry cream, and heat protecting spray before I blow dry. It sounds like a lot of products but I definitely need them to keep my hair hydrated.
- Describe yourself in five words?
Ooh this one is hard, ok here we go: sassy, stylish, determined, confident, friendly
- What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
My biggest inspirations come from Instagram and beauty vloggers. Some of my favorites are Jeffree Star, Manny MUA, and NikkieTutorials. I love watching tutorials and scrolling through makeup accounts on Instagram. Both of these keep me writing for my blog!
- What are the top three things on your bucket list?
Top 3 Things on my Bucket List: travel through Europe, conquer my fear of heights and go hang gliding, and go to every state in the USA (so far only been to 10 I think)
- What made you laugh this week?
For Mother’s Day, my parents came up for the day BUT it was raining sadly so we couldn’t do anything outside. So instead we drove up this mountain outside of Denver and went to the Buffalo Bill museum and gift shop. There were so many kitschy things there, and my family loves to laugh about those kinds of things so we were laughing probably more than we should have 🙂
