She chose this blue hue with the season in mind. “I wanted this color to reflect the summer sky and be a backdrop for flowers,” she says.

beat the heat

What’s the best way to keep my hair healthy after swimming? During Oklahoma summers, everyone swims at the lake or pool, and dryness becomes a huge issue. Try wetting your hair before swimming and then spray on a leave-in conditioner. Your hair will absorb all of that goodness instead of sucking up pool chemicals or lake water. How can I keep my hair from fading in the sun? The first tip is pretty simple: Wear a hat! The sun can’t fade your hair color if it’s not exposed. And I recommend using Oribe products. They have UVA/UVB filters in them, so they act as a sunblock for your hair. You can also have a color-balancing treatment done to maintain your desired color. How can I protect the ends of my hair? Aside from getting regular…

the sweetest shower

Before Ree’s oldest daughter, Alex, married the man of her dreams on May 1 (see the wedding on page 14!), family and friends gathered in Pawhuska for a much smaller—but very special—occasion: a shower for the bride-to-be. The event, which took place upstairs at The Mercantile, Ree’s Pawhuska store, had all the hallmarks of a classic shower, including beautiful floral centerpieces and lots of thoughtful gifts. But there were also some fun twists, like an Instagram-worthy balloon backdrop and a stunning cake decorated with edible gold leaf. Pink and white were the colors of the day, and Alex and her sister Paige dressed to match the palette. Read on for the details—you might want to steal an idea or two! A Little Toast Every guest received a mini bottle of bubbly labeled…

rodeo rundown

Barrel Racing A rider enters the arena on a horse at full speed and weaves around three barrels. The rider can touch or even tip the barrels, but if the barrel falls over it’s a five-second penalty. Saddle Bronc Riding This event, similar to bareback riding, was inspired by the old Western tradition of ranch hands riding untrained horses. The rider must remain on the horse for eight seconds. Steer Wrestling A rider must jump from a horse and wrestle a steer flat on the ground. The cowboy with the fastest time wins. Bareback Riding Riders must stay on a horse for eight seconds with only one hand on the rigging. Cowboys are disqualified if they touch anything with their free hand—or if they’re bucked off. Steer Roping A cowboy on a horse must rope a steer’s horns before…
