How I curl my hair!
A lot of you have asked how I curl mine and my clients hair, my favorite tool to use is a wand! I think it is easiest to use on myself. I have tried other tools but this one is my favorite.
This one is my absolute favorite! I have had it for YEARS and it still works perfect.
This is the classic 25mm by Enzo Milano.

2014 Wedding Galleries - Hair by Lola
I wanted to share a few of my favorite weddings I have done Hair and or Makeup for in the past few months! Enjoy!
I had the pleasure of styling hair for Kelly Wilson on her wedding day at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Chicago. Kelly and Joe had a fabulous Gatsby themed wedding on September 6, 2014. Click below for more images.
Without a doubt one of the most fun weddings I have ever worked was Hunter and Nathan's this summer at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Chicago, IL. Such great people and the most fabulous style all incorporated in one. Click the link below to see all of the images!
Last but not least, my favorite wedding to work and attend was my brother and new sister in law- Bob and Katelin! Love you guys so much thank you Katelin for letting me do your hair and makeup! It was so much fun and you two are so perfect for each other. Photography by: Ebby L Photography and Videography by: Blake Ransom

Lola's Current Makeup Favorites
1. Guerlain Terracotta Skin - Healthy Glow Foundation
This foundation is absolutely amazing. It corrects skin imperfections and gives you a healthy glow. I love the light
crème texture- it feels like mousse so it is not runny! It only comes in three shades: 00 Nude, 01 Blonde, 02 Brunette.
I put this on with my fingers after my foundation primer. It is slightly pricy so my secret is to mix it with a cheaper
foundation to save product and allows you to slightly alter the color based on your current face shade/tan!
You can find this product almost anywhere including Sephora and Nordstrom.
2. The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ
I love using this product to exfoliate my lips before I put on lipstick or lip gloss- especially in the winter when my lips
are chapped and dry and my clients love it too! They have many different flavors but my favorite is Sparkling Pink
Grapefruit. Simply rub a small amount on your lips and you can lick it off- its sugar based... yum.
3. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner
My good friend Taylor showed me this eyeliner in college and it is still my favorite. I have tried many different liners
but this one is so great because it doesn't move or smudge. So many of my friends ask me how my eyeliner stays in
place all day/night and this is why! I use a flat brush and dip it in the jar and paint the liner on- great for winged liner
which I wear all the time. This liner is only $24 for the jar. If you are in Chicago go to MACY'S at watertower and see my
bff and pro makeup artist Becky Hill at the Bobbi Brown counter- she is amazing!http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/product/5877/7785/Best-Sellers/Best-Sellers-Eyes/Long-Wear-Gel-Eyeliner/index.tmpl#/i.undefined
4. Burberry Lip Glow - Natural lip gloss
I am a sucker for a good nude lipstick/gloss. However, I hate spending the money unless it's truly worth it. This product
is a splurge at $29 but it is a high-end fashion cosmetic line. I am obsessed with the color and it is not sticky!!! It also
has an amazing fragrance and lasts on your lips. They also have some other amazingly pigmented shades that are
worth trying. The color I use is No. 02 Heather- I got mine at Nordstrom but hurry this color is going fast and might be
limited edition. (side note- they also have great foundation)
5. Charlotte Tilbury - Charlotte's Magic Cream
Her line launched in the U.S. yesterday and this product is already sold out online. I was lucky enough to get a free one
when I learned about her new makeup line through my work. Her Magic Cream is her signature product. She is known
for using it on models for years at fashion shows and photo-shoots as a moisturizer and primer. I am absolutely loving
this product- it helps to moisturize my face as well as prime my face before I put my makeup on and helps to keep my
foundation in place while still giving a nice healthy glow. Not to mention SPF 15 and all natural ingredients. I highly
recommend this product- and I'm not the only one! Just read her other reviews!
6. Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz
Last but certainly not least is my favorite eyebrow pencil. I cannot say enough great things about their brow products.
They are 100% the best and believe me- I have tried them all. My personal favorite is the Brow Wiz skinny brow pencil,
$21 In the shade soft brown (shown above) but I also recommend:
Brow Powder Duo $23
Dipbrow Pomade $18
Tinted Brow Gel $22 (also shown above)
