Follow my lead to Thirteenth and Washington

For those of you who have been “following my lead”, I would like you to know I have been slacking on my blog posts and tutorials for a very good reason. I am in the process of opening a studio called Thirteenth and Washington in the heart of downtown St. Louis. It has been my lifelong dream to create a space that is trendy, fun, and exciting!

What is Thirteenth and Washington? http://www.thirteenthandwashington.com

A space for creative professionals such as hair/ makeup artist, photographers, and wardrobe stylist. It is so hard to open a business alone. Thirteenth and Washington provides a modern-vintage environment for entrepreneurs to excel. We will host fashion shows, photoshoots, classes, and more!

Who’s involved?

 Kristen Linares- editorial hair & makeup artist

 featuring Original Mineral haircolor/products



  Miss Ohio Vintage



Valerie Brown editorial hairstylist

Pink hair!

Spring 2012 is just around the corner and I love to be prepared. Pastel pinks were all over the runway.

Immediatley I purchased 100% human hair wefts followed by custom pastel pink hair color. I’ve created handmade clip-in hair extensions so you don’t have to damage your own hair to follow this trend!

Each extension has been hand sewed with love. I will be selling them for $15 at ….

 I will cut them to blend with your hair. Since they are 100% human hair you are able to curl, flat iron, blow dry, and etc.


Thank god for Lindsay Pattan! I was so glad to have met my trendy friend Lindsay a few months back. Moving to St. Louis & not knowing a single soul is a bit hard, but thanks to her I’ve met a ton of really fashionable people. When it comes to fashion and future trends Lindsay is a great resource.
