The Beauty Department Breaks Down the Bun

One of my favorite beauty blogs The Beauty Department posted an amazing tutorial to take your prim work bun into a full-out party bun. In my opinion, buns are (or should be!) a go-to hairstyle for every girl. Think about it: you’re rushing and don’t have time to wash and style your hair. What’s better than throwing it up in a sleek sock bun, messy bun or top knot? Nothing!

Head over to The Beauty Department to check out the full tutorial.

10 Hats to Keep You Looking Cool (If You’re Losing Your Hair)

Eugenia Kim Disclaimer: This post is not meant to be offensive. A dear friend of mine was just diagnosed with cancer.

I went through a strange roller coaster of emotion. Another close friend (who I will refer to as ‘the informer’) was the one who shared the news with me.  On a regular night out I received text messages from her reading: “When was the last time you talked to so and so? I don’t know what to say….” Of course my immediate assumption was: “DEATH! He died! Omg omg omg why??! No this can’t be!” (more…)

Fashion Week Through a Model’s Eyes Isn’t as Glamorous as You’d Think

Whenever I think of Fashion Week, I picture gorgeous models strutting their stuff down long runways showcasing beautifully crafted garments. I tend to forget, as I’m sure others do, that these models have to endure grueling hours of castings, fittings, hair and makeup, etc. Although the finished result is stunning, it’s hard to believe what models go through to walk the Fashion Week runway hoping to land a big campaign. Reading through the Huffington Post, I came across an interesting article about one model who almost lost a job because of her birth control. I repeat: birth control. (more…)

How To: Upside Down French Braid Bun!

Lately I’ve been researching hairstyles for an upcoming wedding I have to attend. My dress is somewhat busy so I wanted to do something sleek like a sock bun. When I saw this tutorial I was instantly drawn in…and I’m kind of obsessed.

As stated numerous times, I wasn’t blessed with the natural skill of creating pretty hairstyles. The only thing I can do is throw my hair into a high ponytail or sock bun. Luckily for me, my sister has that natural ability and after seeing this tutorial I’m going to be her newest client. Like most girls, I’m loving sock buns because they are super easy and instantly transform your entire look. This hair tutorial by Luxy Hair kicks it up a notch and adds in an upside down french braid.

I’m so glad I found the Luxy Hair YouTube channel because these girls are so talented and have amazing, easy-to-follow tutorials. Sisters, Mimi and Leyla, started Luxy Hair after Mimi had a bad experience with hair extensions. Check out their site for premium Luxy Clip-In Hair Extensions!

Summer-Ready Hairstyles You Have to Try!

The weather is starting to heat up outside which only means one thing: frizz. I tend to think my hair is naturally frizzy and always looking like a mess, so summertime makes it worse. Unfortunately, I wasn’t blessed with the skills of doing awesome up-dos and other effortless hairstyles that my sister, of course, has a knack for.

Now that frizzy-hair weather is about to be in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about hairstyles that are easy, quick and versatile. Here are three of my favorite summer-ready hairstyles every girl needs to try! (more…)
