NEW HAIR WHO DIS

MADE IN COLLABORATION WITH SACO HAIR COPENHAGEN

Oh hvor havde jeg set frem til dette længe! Jeg skulle faktisk have gjort det inden jul men længe leve dovenskaben. Jeg trængte desperat til at blive klippet. Mit pandehår var længere end min nabo’s bryster og egentlig så jeg lettere pjusket ud. Jeg får ret tit spørgsmål om mit hår, særligt på instagram så jeg tænkte jeg ville lave et lille post hvor jeg fortæller om hvor jeg bliver klippet, hvad der bliver gjort osv. Jeg bliver klippet af fantastiske Betty Christoffersen. Betty er medstifter af Saco Hair som ligger i Fiolstrædet og hun er den eneste jeg tør lade røre mit hår. I hvertfald med en saks i hånden (lidt hovedbunds nus siger jeg sjældent nej til). Udover pandehår klippede Betty spidser og gav mit meget trætte (over sol eksponeret LA hår) en gloss. En gloss er ikke noget farligt blot et ekstra plejende og beskyttende lag som giver håret lidt ekstra glans og glød. Man kan også vælge at komme lidt farve i hvis man vil prøve det – dog bliver både gloss og farve skyllet ud efter lidt tid. Jeg har krøller fra naturens side men disse på billedet er (desværre) lavet af Betty og blev vildt smukke! Jeg har sat et link ind øverst hvis nogen selv vil ind og blive klippet hos SACO så kan i booke tid igennem der. God fornøjelse!

english: Oh my had I been looking forward to this for a looong time! I should have done this before Christmas but CHEERS to laziness. I desperately needed a haircut. My bangs were longer than my neighbors breasts and to be honest I looked rather shagged (and not in a good way). I quite often get questions about my hair, especially on instagram so I thought I would do a little post explaining where I get it cut, what I get done and so on. My hair is cut by the amazing Betty Christoffersen. Betty is the co-founder of Saco hair located in Fiolstrædet in central Copenhagen. She is the only one I let touch my hair, with a scissor in her hand that is (I rarely pass on hair cuddles). Besides cutting my bangs, Betty also fixed my split ends and gave me a gloss. Betty recommended that we did a gloss because my overly sun exposed LA hair was very dull and needed a pick me up. A gloss is nothing permanent just a layer of care, shine and life to the hair. It’s also possible to add a little bit of color but it’s all washed out after a while. I have natural curls but these were made by Betty! Wish they were mine, I always love how she styles my hair. I have put in a link under the photo to SACO if you wanna check it out yourself. Enjoy!

Valentins dag er meget mere end at vise du elsker din partner. Det er min helt oprigtige mening at du skal fejre denne dag lige præcis som det passer dig. Hvis du er i forhold, så håber jeg du bliver forkælet og jeg håber du husker at forkæle din partner – jeg mener det damer, det er også hans valentins dag. Men hvis ikke du er i et forhold så håber jeg du husker at forkæle dig selv. Køb en ny taske, køb en cheeseburger – faktisk, køb begge dele. Jeg har personligt en kæmpe kærlighed for lingerie. Jeg elsker, elsker, ELSKER lingerie. Jeg elsker også at i min verden er mit lingerie lige så meget for mig selv som det er for andre. Der kan ikke sættes en pris på at have det godt, derfor er det også vigtigt for mig at dokumentere når jeg har det aller bedst. Jeg elsker at tage polaroids gennem mit liv så jeg kan huske hvordan jeg har set ud. Jeg er sikker på når jeg er i 40’erne, 50’erne eller 60’erne at jeg vil glæde mig over de her billeder og sætte pris på dem for altid. Så med det sagt, tror jeg mit mantra denne valentins dag er; elsk dig selv, du fortjener det! Happy Valentines Day.

english: Valentines day is about so much more than love for your partner. In my opinion, you should celebrate this day how ever you want. If you are in a relationship I hope you get spoiled and I hope you are spoiling your partner – ladies I am serious, it’s valentines for him too. But if you aren’t in one, I hope you spoil yourself. Buy yourself a new bag, buy yourself a cheeseburger – or heck, do both! One of my biggest love affairs is lingerie. I love, adore and cherish lingerie. I also love how for me, it’s as much for myself as it’s for someone else. Feeling good is priceless so never forget to capture those moments when you feel good. I love taking polaroids through out my life to remember what I looked like. I know when I look back at these in my 40’s, 50’s or 60’s I will cherish them greatly. I guess my message this valentines is; love yourself, you deserve it. Happy Valentines Day.

Shop the 3 key products from this look
Hairspray (shop here), Mousse (shop here), Dry shampoo (shop here)

Som i måske har set på min instastory i forbindelse med Københavns modeuge var jeg så heldig at være backstage sammen med Sebastian Professional under Designers Remix showet. Her var der fokus på moderne 80’er hår med lækker sideskildning og uperfekte spidser. Looket blev skabt med en blanding af forskellige typer krøller for et mere “permanentet” look som man ofte havde i 80’erne. Key produkterne i looket bestod af hairspray, en god bouncy mousse og massere af dry shampoo. Dry shampoo er blandt andet også det som giver de “tørre spidser” som er en stor del af looket. Jeg var så heldig at få lov til at stille Sebastian Professional’s global artist, Nina Larsen, et par spørgsmål om looket og hende selv – dem kan i læse nedenfor på engelsk. Så kan alle være med. Rigtig god fornøjelse.

english: As you may have noticed on my instastory, I was so lucky, that during Copenhagen Fashionweek, I got to be backstage at the Designers Remix show with Sebastian Professional. Here, the 80’s had arrived. Chic midtparts and imperfect ends were key to this modern 80’s take on a curly hairstyle. The hair had different types of curls to resemble the look of a perm from the 80’s. Key products to create this look included hairspray, a bouncy mousse and dry shampoo. The dry shampoo, especially, is what creates the dryness and illusion of the “split ends” which is a big part of the look. I was so lucky that I got to ask Sebastian Professionals global artist, Nina Larsen, some questions about the look and herself. Read below. Enjoy!

3 QUESTIONS TO NINA LARSEN, KEY ARTIST, SEBASTIAN PROF.

How do you, as the key stylist, come up with new looks all the time?

As key stylist it’s very important to keep track of the new tendencies. You are either lucky to be able to create and develop looks yourself or you are not. Creativity is a gift. For me to be creative, it’s important for me to have the space and time to reflect. I get this during my many travels where I take the time to reflect but also to gather new inspiration. It’s also important for me to be surrounded by creative minds and create together.

What is your best hair trick?
A bun can be hard to style because we want it to look natural and organic. What’s important is the product you use during your blowdry. Add a bit of the Sebastian Texture Maker into damp hair and blow-dry with your head down to create that “fluff” in the hair. The Texture Maker creates a texture that makes the hair much easier to style. If you want a high bun, put your head between your legs and make a high ponytail. Use your hands. Then you twist the ponytail around it’s center. A good tip is to make it tighter than you want it at first, that way you know it’s secure. When the bun is finished you are ready to style it in the front and loosen it in the back. Finish your look with Sebastians Drynamic dryshampoo for that messy finish.

What are you personal favorite products from Sebastian Professional? 

My favorites right now are Sebastian Dark Oil and Sharper Fierce. Dark Oil smells amazing and can be used before blow dry but also in dry hair to add some shine. Dark Oil gives a nice soft feel to the hair while it nurtures and add’s shine. The Sebastian Sharper Fierce is a hairspray with strong hold. I love that it’s so dry in it’s consistency yet the hair still feels light.

POST FASHIONWEEK | ME TIME

MADE IN COLLABORATION WITH FUZE TEA

Glasses, White marble board, Yellow marble board, Pitcher / All from Broste Copenhagen (see catalogue here)

Jeg er vild med mig tid, mig tid er meget vigtigt. Ikke kun for mig, men også for mine elskede omkring mig. De får en meget bedre Maria i deres liv når jeg husker at tage mig min mig tid. Jeg forstod aldrig rigtig mig tid før hen. Det var først for et par år siden da jeg led under et mavesår som opstod grundet stress at jeg lærte at tage mig tid til mig selv. Jeg fik stress af at flytte til en ny by, af at arbejde min rumpe i laser på et nyt job, af at forsøge på at være en super kæreste og den perfekte datter mens jeg aktivt altid (stadig) forsøger at udleve alle mine (mange) drømme. Mit lille mavestår bor stadig i min mave og er altid klar på lige at give mig en lille brændende fornemmelse hvis jeg ikke har husket at tage mig min mig tid. Fashionweek kan godt være meget stressende. Heldigvis har jeg det nemt; jeg bliver kørt rundt i lækre biler, mine shows er planlagt og chaufføren ved altid hvor jeg skal hen. Folk er søde og det er altid sjovt. Men det er stadig nogle laaaange dage, meget mingelereren, mange billeder og mange outfits at holde styr på. Så ugen efter, har jeg helt sikkert brug for lidt mig tid. Min mig tid er mange ting; jeg elsker at se friends, lægge masker eller ligge på en parkbænk og kigge op i himlen mens jeg lytter til Elton John – det er alt sammen humør bestemt. Men noget jeg virkelig holder af er at være i køkkenet og lave ting og sager. En af mine yndlings smage fra min barndom er fersken is te, så da Fuze tea spurgte om jeg havde lyst til at smage deres nye is te var jeg helt på! Fuze tea er lavet på sort te ekstrakt med naturlig frugt smag og er super forfriskende. Jeg kan godt lide at bruge is te’en til at lave en lille “drink”. En del af mig tid er også at gøre noget lidt ekstra for sig selv, og en flot “drink” kan snildt være en del af det. Jeg kan godt lide at mixe hindbær og mynte sammen med fersken smagen og citron skiver med en stav rosmarin i lemon smagen. Disse små, ekstra ingredienser gør ikke kun drikken smuk men fremmer også smagsoplevelsen. God fornøjelse!

english: I am a big fan of me time, me time is important. Not just to me, it’s also important to the people around me. They get a much better Maria in their life if I take my me time. I never really understood me time until a few years ago where I suffered an ulcer from stress. Stress from living in a new city, working my ass of at my new job, trying to be a great girlfriend, the perfekt daughter and trying to live my (many) dreams, amongst other things. My little ulcer still lives in my stomach and it kindly gives me a little tug when I need to take some me time. Fashionweek can be a stressful time. Luckily I have it easy; I am driven around in awesome cars, my shows are all in my calendar and the driver knows where I am going. People are always nice and it’s a fun time. But it’s still looong days, lot’s of mingling, lot’s of pictures to take and sets of clothes to change into. So the week after, I need some me time. My me time can be many things; I love watching friends, doing a facemask or laying on a park bench looking into the sky and listen to Elton John – it all depends on the mood. Something I also love is to spend time in the kitchen, making stuff. One of my favorite flavors from my childhood is peach ice tea so when Fuze tea asked me to taste their new range of ice teas I was all in. Fuze tea is made with black tea extract and natural fruit flavors and makes for a great refreshment. I like to make a little “drink” with my ice tea. Apart of me time is also making me feel special and a nice looking beverage does that for me. I love to add raspberries and mint to the peach flavored tea and lemon with a stench of rosemary for the lemon flavored tea. These extra little ingredients not only makes a pretty drink but a full experience. Enjoy!
