A Cabo Wedding

From Beverly Hills to Cabo, lead colorist and Jonathan & George Salon co-owner Amanda George shares with us her recent trip to our sister salon, OBO at the One & Only Palmilla.

I just got back from a quick business trip to my salon in Cabo at The One and Only olivia nelson bridal hair accessoriesPalmilla! I went with Jill Linson, (the one and only), our manager at our Beverly Hills salon, to have some meetings and check in with the Pamilla team before the busy season starts next week. I arrived to see the OBO salon in full swing, doing a glam wedding party. The bride wore her hair in a combo style of The Ocean Club Bounce and the “I Do” (see more styles here), and she wore an incredible Olivia Nelson hand woven crystal headband (sold at the salon for $330). The bridesmaids and flower girls wore a variety of other gorgeous accessories like the Vivien Crystal comb ($145).Vivien crystal comb - oliva nelson hair accessories
The weather was of course very beautiful and wonderfully warm, so team used Oribe Anti Humidity Spray and Superfine Hairspray to make sure not a hair was out of place. The results were absolutely stunning.oribe superfine hairsprayoribe impermeable_anti_humidity_spray

Pro Tips: Amanda George’s Hair Traveling Essentials

amanda georgeTraveling light should never mean having to sacrifice looking your best. Sure, you can pack 15+ products for piece of mind that you’re covering all your bases, or you could pack just two and know you’re still going to look fabulous. Amanda George, co-owner of Jonathan & George Salon and hair maven, recently traveled to Seychelles and knew she didn’t want to lug a whole suitcase of styling products across the globe, but also knew she didn’t have to either.

best hair styling products to take while traveling“I only took two styling products in my cosmetic bag that I’m obsessed with right now.” Knowing the sun, ocean, and pool would be part of her activities, Amanda packed R+Co Park Avenue Blow Out Balm and R+Co Dallas Thickening Spray. “The blow out balm protects your hair from heat styling and locks in moisture between washes. Maintaining moisture in your hair is key to keeping it healthy and preserving color.” Amanda advises.  The second product, R+Co’s Dallas Thickening Spray, Amanda “absolutely loves” because it is a lightweight volumizer that really adds lift without overdrying your hair. The ingredients work to add in moisture as well without weighing down your strands.

Amanda’s final words of advice: “Packing these products will help keep your hair healthy and beautiful. More importantly, you have extra room in your suitcase for any ‘treasures’ you may come across while traveling.”
