The Beach Wave Hair Tutorial Featuring Katie Rector of Salon 01!!

Hello Whimsers! How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic! I had a blast at the Georgetown Market Spring Into Wellness Event on Saturday! I met some amazing people, tried some really cool products, and learned some valuable nuggets of healthy information.  It was so much fun, and you can catch tons of pictures and live videos on my Facebook Page Here.

 So that was Saturday, but Monday I had even more fun because I got a chance to hang out with Katie Rector who is the Director of Education and Hair Designer of the beautiful Salon 01!

Katie and I have some history because she was my instructor while in Beauty School.  She’s just the sweetest thing and a walking body of knowledge who is a blessing to our beauty industry! I say this because she understands the value of continuing education, and that understanding has afforded her the ability to achieve many certifications, work on prestigious projects, and has allowed her to meet NAHA award winning hair designers! (North American Hairstylist Awards)

 She drilled me like crazy while I was in school long ago, but you know what? I’m so thankful that she did.  Because of that awful, yet helpful drilling, (I love you Katie) I can formulate color on the spot and her structured form of teaching helped to mold me into the hair designer that I am today.  I can round brush like no other because of her teaching, and I was able to walk into a very high end salon right out of beauty school because of the high level of education that I received from her and others at Kaye’s Beauty College in Noblesville, IN.

Katie is no longer teaching in a school, but I’m happy to see that this beautiful woman is still instilling knowledge into others, and I’m not surprised that she holds the title Director of Education at Salon 01! I’m so proud to call her teacher and friend.  Awwww.  Warm nuggets lol.  I believe that anyone who sits in this woman’s chair, or any of the Salon 01 hair designers will leave happy and looking fabulous.

I love giving hair tips, but I thought it would be cool to feature other stylists once in a while, and I’m thrilled to share Katie’s Beach Wave technique with all of you!

I went to Salon 01 and recorded this video and I hope you will enjoy it! I also have some awesome pictures below! Katie Rector and Salon 01 can be found HERE and don’t forget to like and share!!! I love you guys!!! xoxo!!







This place is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors and everything about this salon! This space was truly designed with their guests in mind and I loved it so much, that I tried to get my hair done lol!!

Okay, I just really loved the dryer lol! They also have a quaint boutique located in the heart of first floor.  Check it out.




They even have a Men’s Department.  Boom!!





I love this!!!


I was blown away by the atmosphere and the staff was very friendly.  This is high end, but not high attitude and I felt the welcoming vibe from the very start.
