PRIM + PROPER

PRIM + PROPER
photos: post designed by kristin ess Today we’re introducing you to one of the easiest hair tutorials ever– the braided bun! It can be done on almost any texture or length of hair, using regular or fishtail braids! Luckily, we have our very own gorgeous/genius photographer, Angela Kohler, (in front of the lens for once) to show us how this is done… Before you start, know that this hair style is just 5 simple braids, made into a bun shape. It makes things a little less complicated when you think of it like that. TOOLS: curling iron, 5 clear elastics, bobby pins, sectioning clips and hairspray is optional! Start by curling your hair.

CHALK IT UP photos: Kristin Ess, post designed by Kristin Ess Last week, we were shooting Lauren’s collection for Kohl’s and at the end of the day, we got our hands on some colorful soft chalks. How can a girl resist when there are pinks + purples involved??

Half French Twist Here is a tutorial for a simple 1/2 up style: 1. Pull a section from one side of your head back to the center and insert bobby pins vertically. to Add Colors in Life - StumbleUpon We women adore fashion and style.

BALLERINA BUN (REMIX) Photos by Post design by Kristin Ess Hello lovelies! Today we’re showing you how to create a hybrid of our two favorite things– a bun and a braid. No Heat SJP BIG CURLS w/ Twisted Buns ...also known as Bantu Knots If you follow me on Instagram you already know about this because I shared it there see photos below but the other night I slept on twisted buns to get these BIG CURLS just to switch it up a little which the husband LOVES. In fact he said “You know, you could do that MORE OFTEN if you wanted to”. Big curls are a BIG hit around here In 2009 I did a quick video demonstrating how I twist my hair into the little buns whilst singing to Lady Gaga – but I only did a photo tutorial of how to get the finished look. So the other morning before I left for the gallery I filmed it for you and hopefully answered all the questions I’ve gotten about this easy little tutorial. Enjoy…

PIN IT UP, GIRL - thebeautydepartment.com - StumbleUpon Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night. French Braid Tutorial Here is a video on How to French Braid Your Own Hair! featuring: my bangs :) Please comment with any questions or your own success story! :) Close Ups: How To Make Hairspray I was so excited to share this recipe for homemade hairspray that I had a hard time conducting an adequate test phase! I’m happy to report that after using it every day for over a month, I’ve been thrilled with the results. (UPDATE: I’ve been using this formula for over two years now, and won’t ever go back to store-bought!) Here’s how and why I make my own hairspray. My Issues with Commercial Hairspray Nowadays I have very thick, curly, long(ish) hair and need to use a generous amount of hairspray no matter how I style it.

BRAIDY BUNCH photo: kristin ess + thebeautydepartment.com post designed by kristin ess This week my little sister came to stay with me. Since we LOVE braids around here, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use her shiny brown hair to show you how to do this quick one. It’s similar to the waterfall braid, but much faster and less confusing. Braid Wrapped Ponytail This is another version of the French Braid into a Braided Ponytail that I posted yesterday. It’s basically just the complete opposite (you’ve got 2 braids to wrap instead of one – and minus the French!) Once again, this isn’t anything too difficult and you can change it up by making rope braids, or uneven 3 strand braids to start with & you’ll also get a very pretty result. I didn’t take step-by-step pictures, as this is fairly self-explanatory.

Hair Chalking DIY - How To Hair Chalk Ever since Lauren Conrad posted a photo of her tie-dyed hair on her blog, I've been desperate to try it out myself.

Then, my friend told me about an awesome way to get multi-colored tips without any commitment - hair chalking!
