Denim: It’s "Jeanius"

Raise your hand if you need to do a closet clean out?! I’ve got both of mine in the air. But one staple piece that I will never, let me say it again, NE-VER, get rid of is my beloved denim button-up shirt! They are simple. You can dress them up. You can dress them down. You can tuck them in. You can tie them up. No matter your shape they look good! I seriously could go on and on. I truly believe that there are about four million ways to style a denim shirt but I’ll stick with my top three.

Right now we’re in that weird in-between of seasons. When you dress for the morning temp you’re sweating and regretting your outfit decisions by the afternoon. Super frustrating, I hear you! For weather like this I grab my denim shirt and tie it up with a fun mini skirt or layer it over a  dress (also my FAVE look for when you’re rocking a baby bump!) This look can comfortably take you through the chilly mornings and into the sunny afternoons of our ever-changing NC weather.

My personal go-to is denim on denim. Lots of people are scared of this look.  The key to pulling it off is balance. Play with accessories, add a fun neck scarf, break up the tones with two different shades or with the help of a white tee underneath or a belt. Just try it! Like, once. I PROMISE you’ll look and feel great and be ever so stylish! 😉

Lastly, layers! When in doubt, throw your denim shirt under your sweaters or over your favorite tee. Whether it’s an open cardigan or you just need some added dimension or extra warmth this is a simple way to add to an outfit.

So easy, right?! Ok you babes, if you don’t own a denim shirt RUN and getchu one! You will not regret having such a timeless piece in your closet.

DON'T LET YOUR HAIR "FALL" SHORT THIS SEASON

Autumn is definitely being fashionably late here to the coast of NC, while Summer is still trying to linger on. We’ve had a taste of those cool(er) temps and hopefully soon they will be here to stay! Time to break out the cozy sweaters, order a PSL, and call Grandma for her yummiest chili recipe! Fall. Is. Coming.

While I love a good chunky sweater, the perfect fitting denim button-up or the most trendy neck scarf, I don’t know about you, but by the end of a windy fall day my long mane is needing some love. What is it about the cooler weather that creates the dreaded tangle to form underneath your hair?! I’m sure there’s some science to it but I find that most days I’m tossing my hair into the perfect topknot or high pony.

Recently, I have been using (and might I add, fallen IN LOVE with) Missio’s Coconut Cleansing Powder dry shampoo to draw out my wash and create the perfect, textured high hair styles. Cute and simple all while avoiding that knotted underneath mess. Can I get an Amen?!


And not to leave out those babes who like to stick with a lower style hair-do. I've got the perfect and EASY fix for you too!

First, part the front sections of your hair from ear to ear. Leave them out while putting the back half in a low bun.

Second, take one of the front sections of hair and wrap it above and around the bun, securing it underneath with a bobby pin.

 Continue to do the same thing with the other front section.

Now mess it up! IMO, the messier the better! So pull some front pieces down around your face, pull at the top near your crown to loosen up the look or simply just pull your bun apart. And there you have it! Quick and easy!

So Autumn, we welcome you with open arms and fun hair. Check back here in a few weeks for three ways to style my favorite fall staple piece that I bet is already in your closet too!

HAIR SECRETS - MISSIO's Guide to Shine

Long or short, curly or straight… SHINY hair is what most women (and a lot of men) want. When you see someone with an incredible amount of shine, you just KNOW their hair is healthy. It probably means they take great care of their hair, right? Perhaps visiting the salon frequently to get that treatment, glaze or color refresh? How does someone keep up that healthy glow? Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a way to achieve this at home without it being a crazy expense?

So here’s a little hair lesson:

Each strand of hair has a surface of tiny cuticles. These small scales on the surface of your hair lie flat if they have enough moisture. Without the nourishment they need, they will rise, creating a brittle and more rigid surface on each strand. When light hits your hair, a smooth surface will reflect light, causing it to look shiny, whereas a rough surface will not reflect in the same way. Instead it is more prone to damage, frizz and split ends! Yikes!!!

And THIS, ladies and gentlemen is why we decided to pack as many nourishing properties into our products as possible... because we want to leave those cuticles happy and nourished with every use, resulting in shiny and RADIANT hair!

So now you are probably thinking… taking this kind of care of my hair has to be expensive! Well (drumroll please) the great news is, we’ve created a way for you to care for your hair without frequent visits to the salon or breaking the bank.

HERE'S THE SECRET: It can be as simple as the CONDITIONER that you choose. Luckily MISSIO’s Glossing conditioner is FULL of nourishing properties that help restore and strengthen hair with each use. It will boast shine and softness like never before! (And for an extra dose of shine, pair it with our Gentle Cleansing Golden Shampoo!)

So how EXACTLY does it work?

So here’s the deal. There are so many wonderful natural ingredients on this earth that can help boost the SHINE factor for your hair…  so we have curated a special blend for our products. Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Avocado and Coconut Oil are four nourishing oils that are included in our Glossing conditioners! This incredible blend works wonders on hair! Sounds like a pretty yummy recipe, huh?

And let us just tell you, IT WORKS. We have received so many testimonials and messages about how people are so in love with the conditioner and the way it adds such SHINE to their hair, even from the first use.

So everyone, let’s keep those strands happy and healthy by giving them the nourishment they need. We can’t wait for you to try our conditioner, because we know you’ll be hooked. And not only that, but you will be making a PURCHASE with a PURPOSE!
