Whether a morning meditation or afternoon cup of tea, the rituals we practice serve us more than we realize. They are our life’s bookends, moments we rely on and enjoy. For mamas especially, these small ceremonies are what gets us through the day. At A Wild Dove, we are so inspired by rituals, that we’ve asked some of our favorite women to share their smallest, most precious acts of the day that help them feel their best.

Here, Kristen Shaw, fashion and celebrity hairstylist, owner of the super cool hair salon Cabin and Brand Ambassador to our fave hair line, Playa shares some of her favorite moments.


My first ritual of the morning is...

"going into the ocean. Living by the beach, I wake up and go down to the water, stretch, and jump in no matter the season on whatever day I can. Cold water therapy has become addictive (and amazing for skin + circulation) and I love it as a means for waking up."


My last ritual of the evening is...


"lighting some kind of incense (my favorite is Incienso de Sante Fe "Pinon") or candle (Maison Louis Marie, #4) - I find that the nostalgia of scent puts me into a really good sleep."


My favorite ritual alone is...

"drawing.  It makes sense of all the things going on in and around my life and mind."


My favorite ritual to de stress is...

"a salt bath with lavender and Eucalyptus oil!"
