There’s only one
logical conclusion when you consider my California roots and affinity for
Lauren Conrad- I’m obsessed with braids! In my mind, the popular summer style
can easily transition into fall. I love how a cool braid can still make my hair
look on-trend without a drastic change like a cut or color- I’m a creature of
habit after all. After seeing this post on one of my favorite Dallas style
blogs M.A.S. Fashion, I knew I needed to check out the Dear Clark braid bar for
As soon as I walked
into the urban chic salon, I felt like I wasn’t cool enough to be there!
Honestly all the stylists look like rock stars and the art decorating the walls
gives the salon a fun, creative vibe. Did I mention Dear Clark regularly hosts
art events with live
music, crafted cocktails, clothes and
food trucks?! Count me in!
The next one will take place on Sept. 19 in case you
were dying to know. I also love that the Dear Clark founders, Holly Dear and
Kaycee Clark, created a hair care line with only natural based and Texas-grown
products. My dry and damaged hair (I have a love-hate relationship with the
Japanese hair straightening system I do twice a year) thanked me after just one
use of Dear Clark’s shampoo and conditioner.
At just $20 for a braid and
$35 for a blowout, I know you’ll freak out over Dear Clark as much as I did for
your next Boulevard or sorority formal. Be sure to ask for my stylist, Yessica.
Thank you for having me, Dear Clark! I’ll be back soon : )

PS: One more thing- I’m
honored to co-host a fall style event at Movida Boutique on Sunday, Sept. 15
from noon to 3 p.m. Mark your calendars, and I’ll see you there for a fun
afternoon filled with shopping, treats and discounts!

    Looks like such a cool place! Love the edgy vibe. Your hair came out awesome—I love a braid with a bit of a twist. I will have to visit this place next time I'm in Dallas!

    xo honestly, b.

    I love braids too but I'm not very good at braiding my own hair. Your hair turned out really good! x

      Thanks! I've mastered the braided crown, but besides that, I'm totally hopeless at braiding my own hair too!

    If I could do anything it would be to have it wavy and curly in the right areas and have something awesome done with my bangs that would make my fact not look so fat! Hair Studio LDK
