You know I love to mix it up.
So when Amazon’s Style Code Live invited me on their show to get a haircut by the one & only, Scotty Cunha…I JUMPED AT THE CHANCE.
Style Code Live is Amazon’s first live fashion & beauty show. It’s free for anyone to watch– it streams live every weeknight at 6pm PST / 9pm EST. It was so fun to shoot this & to be a part of such an innovative show! You can re-watch my segment– just skip ahead to see the haircut!
I mean if I’m going to get a Victoria Beckman-ish lob it might as well be on live TV with Scotty Cunha.
If you don’t know Scotty, he is the KING OF CUTTING.
He’s literally an artist with haircuts. Incredible really. Instead of using scissors, Scotty uses a razor. & MAN OH MAN does he know his product. The guy knows exactly what to use for effortless, textured hair. Just how I like it. We spent like 5 hours together & I learned so many tips. VERY excited to share all the juicy details with you guys.
Scotty also happens to cut all of the Kardashian’s hair. He told me the Kardashian’s are extremely committed to their glam routine. They plan it out & LOVE to try new looks. Lately I’ve been all about switching it up. I mean how long can I wear the same hair style until it bores me to death, you know? I feel like the Kardashian’s have kind of given a lot of people ideas for mixing it up.
Scotty also cuts Kristin Cavallari, Miley Cyrus, & Lucy Hale’s hair- no wonder their hair always looks so amazing. You should also know he’s doing all the celebrities at the Grammy’s this year. He’s killing it. I love how he’s branding himself & utilizing social media to grow his business. Very savvy. CHECK OUT some celebs he cuts:
Racked Magazine says: “The Kardashians and Jenners don’t let just anyone touch their faces, hair, and bodies. Over the years, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kris, Kendall, and Kylie have expanded their inner circle to include an elite group of on-call celebrity stylists and trainers that travel with the famous family, keeping them flawlessly groomed and toned wherever they go. One of these chosen ones is Scotty Cunha, a sassy hairstylist at famed LA salon Andy Lecompte whose infectious energy is just as renowned as his killer cuts.”
YOU SHOULD know he started off working at Starbucks until he made the fulltime transition into hair- if that’s not inspiring, I don’t know what is? Follow his Insta– you won’t be sorry.
Alright on that note, let’s talk product.
So Scotty is a huge fan of four products in particular.
He told me every girl should own:
This is amazing, vintage, inexpensive hairspray that WORKS. Scotty said it was first only avail in Europe & now you can finally get it in the States. It has an extra strong hold with a slightly shiny finish…& the gold bottle is chic on a vanity.
This was his favorite product. He gave me a sample to try & now I’m hooked. Especially for my new haircut. This is a Parisian brand that’s all-natural, vitamin-enriched. It’s globally sourced botanical extracts & is gentle enough for color treated hair. Also the key ingredients are jojoba seed oil, beeswax, shea butter…all my favs.
You know my love for this. I’ve been talking about this product for years. Every girl needs this. Really though. It gives you the prettiest texture. This is the one hair product I swear by on the reg. Which is saying a lot because I’m not super into too much product for my hair.
4.) A wide tooth comb:
Unbeknownst to me, every girl needs a wide tooth comb. Scotty told me it’s the ideal stylist tool & helps blend curls in the most effortless way. BUYING NOW.

I can tell you for sure, for sure I will be using all these products to style my new look.
All of these products are currently in my Amazon cart ( along with a new gold flat iron because I’m loving how he used a flat iron to curl my hair ).
OK LET’S TALK TO THE PRO…
BAD ASS HAIR TIPS, with love from SCOTTY
1.) When in doubt TOP KNOT IT! If you’re in a rush or couldn’t make your blow dry bar appointment spray Orbie Dry Texturizing Spray, then twist hair into a bun on the top of your head use a hair elastic to secure it & spray hair spray for fly-aways.
2.) Add coconut oil to a braid or pig tail braids to make them extra shiny! It’s conditioning for the hair when you decide to take them out and wash.
3.) Whenever you are bored with your hair don’t be afraid to change your part! If you usually do a side part switch to a slick middle part and or do a heavy side part for a sexy “just got fucked look ( <<< he changed my part to a HEAVY side part ).
So if you were on Instagram or Snap yesterday you saw Scotty cut my hair live on Style Code Live at Mane Addicts & The OUAI HQ in LA. He wanted to change-up my basic haircut for something fresher with more edge. Also he added a lot of texture. I feel very 2017 as opposed to 2015-y.
If you want to freshen up your look just watch Scotty work his magic. You’ll also learn how to do a flat ironed wave on Amazon’s Style Code Live. We had so much fun changing up my hair, drinking canned rose, & shooting the shit. He’s fab.
Also, some of you were on Instagram LIVE yesterday with us and I LOVED THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE. Thinking of doing more Instagram LIVE’s, thoughts? What in particular do you guys want to see?
Okkkkk I’m going to take a Pilates class- I can’t move too much because I’m really trying to keep these curls in tack, HAHA.
