Ask Kate: On Shower Caps, My Former Career, and More
The Results of “Whether or Not You Like Your Hair”
How do you take off your makeup?
I’m interpreting this question very literally and separating it from the act of washing my face. I like to wet my face with warm water and use a POND’S makeup removing wipe to remove my makeup. I cleanse my skin with Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea.
Do you miss being a hairstylist?
Sometimes I do. I miss being “in the industry” because I loved it for so many years. It’s fun and full of really unique and talented artists. I miss seeing my regular clients that I saw for years every few weeks. I miss the challenge and chemistry of hair color, and I miss the social aspect of being around people all day.
I don’t miss the hours, the late evenings or weekends. I don’t miss being on my feet for the entire day. And I don’t miss a disrupted schedule from no-show clients! I can’t see myself ever going back to working behind the chair, but if I had a million lifetimes I would definitely want to open my own salon!
What is your favorite hair mask?
I have so many that I love but I have to say I really like the Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Masque. It hydrates my dry hair so well and makes it feel strong the next day.
What is your favorite shower cap? I haven’t found one that comes CLOSE to being as good as this one by Blow Pro.
Do you ever take a nap? No. I’m one of those people that if I take a nap, I feel worse afterward!
If you were on a tight budget, what is one skincare product you would get? A really great exfoliator! This is one of my favorites!
How do you keep brassiness out of your hair? Read this post to see how I keep my blonde bright!
