Tera Rae Stephens

Name: Tera Rae Stephens

Age: 38

Occupation: Hair Stylist

“I believe that in life, we get what we give. I always try to give 110% to my family, my friends, my clients. Following this rule has absolutely made my life fuller. “

My style is: Rocker Boho Chic which translates to a mish mash!

The song I have on repeat right now is: Florence + The Machine’s Shake It Out because it makes my 3-year-old dance like a lunatic!

Growing up, I really wanted to be: a teacher but then I realized I wasn’t a big fan of other peoples kids!

The best part about being a hair stylist is: the ability to almost instantly completely change the way a woman feels about herself by giving her hair that makes her feel beautiful.

The worst thing you can do for your hair is: Over process it! Blonde-er is not always better!

People usually compliment my: Skin and blow drying arms!

I’ll never forget the time: I secretly saved up to buy my husband a Rolex for our 5-year anniversary. I was awful with money, and not only was it a HUGE surprise to him, it completely changed the way I handle my money.

For my skin, I use: Osmosis and Botox!

My favorite place in the whole world is: The Viceroy Zihuatanejo because my husband and I can both completely relax when we’re there.

Current beauty product obsession: Bobbi Brown Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizing Balm because it gives me light coverage, SPF and dewy, glowing skin.

But I also can’t live without: my Enzo Milano Curling Iron and Hotheads Hair Extensions

Worst habit: Checking my Twitter, email and Facebook a gajillion times a day!

When I travel, I MUST have: My iPad, my Canon EOS 60D camera, Tyler Rose bikinis, my hubby and plenty of Xanax. I hate to fly!

My favorite scent right now: Chinatown by Bond No. 9

People might be surprised to know that: I only wash my hair once a week!

My current favorite hair product is: Après Beach spray by Oribe. It creates amazing volume and texture, glossy shine and smells like heaven.

I don’t understand people who don’t like: Cutting loose on the dance floor!

The restaurant I can never get tired of are:Jose’s Tuna from Mahe in Seal Beach, CA

Though I can make a mean: grilled rib eye steak.

I hope in 5 years:I’m still getting carded to buy alcohol!!!

Who inspires me: My three kids, fashion, travel and photographer husband.
