This is the first of a two part series of gorgeous hair tutorials. As a wedding and lifestyle photographer, mom to three active little ones (and a German Shepard), and wife, I know how crazy life can get. Having just a few moments to put my hair together in the morning often means a ponytail or all down. When I met hair stylist and makeup artist Savanah Poulsen, I had a feeling she could rescue my forgotten locks. Just She's put together two classic, sleek, and quick hairstyles that you (and I!) can put together in those few early morning moments before our day (and schedule) starts! Cheers to the women of the world who are serving others, making late night grocery store runs, popping pies in the oven for parties, and making the holidays comfortable for your families. May you take a few moments for yourself to unwind and be wonderfully YOU. In your yoga pants or cocktail dress, you are fabulous, and we hope rocking these quick hairstyles will never let you forget!A special thank you to Paige of Blooms Flower Studio for hosting us in their beautiful storefront.
