Categories: Beauty

Before¬†Before After I have been getting a Brazilian Blowout from Rachelle White Wind for over a year and a half now. ¬†When I first heard about it I was excited. No frizz?

You can download an app to your phone, set up an account and order a car right from the app. ELIMINATE A PHONE CALL. Awesome. Plus you can see how far away the nearest driver is, thus giving you precise timing to put on your lipstick and pack your purse. Then you get a text when your driver has arrived.
