Twist Pony-Tail

photos: post designed by kristin ess Time to mix up the mundane… This has always been one of our favorite ways to spice up the plain old ponytail. We asked our fabulous friend Jaclyn from to lend us a head to show you how to get hot hair in a hurry! This is a great way to style your hair for almost any occasion and can be done in minutes! Here we go… TOOLS: curling iron (we used a 1″ barrel), clear ponytail holder or one that matches your hair color, bobby pins (we prefer large bobby pins for this because they hold a lot of hair and will stay more secure!) Start by adding some curl to your hair for texture.Create a low ponytail. Pull a few pieces out around your face to soften the look.

Peacock Makeup Hey everyone! I was looking at Van Gogh's Starry Night online because it has an amazing range of colors and wanted to do a look inspired by it! As I started doing the look however, I started adding peacock colors and slowly shifted towards that instead so it's now a mixture of both. Either way, I love this look because I went out of my comfort zone and tried a different technique of shadow.

SHORT HAIR CHIGNON - Hello dollies! Today’s video is dedicated to those of you with bobs and long bobs. A lot of emails come in regarding short hair and how hard it can be to dress it up. CROWN OF BRAIDS photos + post design Kristin Ess It seems pretty easy, but it’s not. Not everyone has long hair that reaches all the way around the head to make a perfect crown of braids. Girls with short hair need braids TOO!

Pin-It-Up Hair Style 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. I made this a printable tutorial, so all of the steps are next to the photos.

THE EVERY DAY WAVE - Follow these easy steps to get Lauren’s every day wave: • Tools: protective serum or argon oil, 1″ barrel curling iron, light hold hairspray, comb. • Work a small amount of protective serum through the ends of your hair. THE HEART BRAID photos/design/post by Kristin Ess Since it’s wedding season, we thought it would be a good idea to do a post on flower girl hair. Wee ones need beauty too!

The Loom Braid June 4th, 2011By: Heather A few days ago I posted a picture of myself on twitter with a new hairstyle I saw on Pintrest. I’d made it my mission to figure out to to do it. I was pretty proud of myself when I succeeded. It’s beautiful and a great summer style that gets your hair off your face. I call it the “loom braid” because a) I have no idea if it actually has a name, and b) it reminded me of playing with a toy loom I had when I was a kid. THE BALLERINA BUN - This is both Lauren and my favorite look right now for so many reasons. It’s classic, it’s quick, it can make you look taller, and you can wear it with almost anything! The ballerina bun can be worn high up on the top of your head or down lower near the back of your neck. Either way, our favorite ”go-to-do” for anyone with collar bone length hair or longer. • Tools: 1″ barrell curling iron, clear elastic or pony tail holder, smoothing + updo brush, 4-6 large bobby pins, firm holding hairspray.
