NEW FAVORITES

crystal crown the beauty department free people

We’re going to creep into fall soon so we had to do a little online shopping for the upcoming season change! The second I laid my eyes on this CRYSTAL CROWN I knew I had to have it. It’s just gorgeous and will make a fun accessory for an outdoor event or maybe I’ll use it for a shoot, who knows. Either way– gimme all the sparkly things!!!!

If the crystal crown is a little too much for you, peep these  STONE HEADBANDS as an alternative. They’re a little more subtle and not too overpowering but still gives earthy goddess vibes.

Most of us aren’t ready to give up those beachy summer waves just yet. MESSY HAIR TEXTURIZING SPRAY is pretty rad. I like it because it has both argan and coconut oils and doesn’t leave my hair feeling dry AT ALL. I go through these bottles very quickly in summer and fall.

Not really my norm to say use GLITTER SPRAY, but I really like this one. The glitter is so fine that it sort of disappears into the hair and you get this subtle sparkle when you’re in the sun. It’s nothing like those chunky glitter hairsprays of the 90’s. But… it’s still glitter, so you’ll have to deal with that for like, what? A month?

I know, I know, I know… you could make this. That was my immediate thought too. But then I realized by the time I buy the stuff to make this and put gas in my car to go get it, I could have just sprung for this $6 PONY BOW. This feels like a good thing to have in your purse at all times in case you need to pull a look together quick.

Calling all cool girls. These little METALLIC BOBBIES are on sale right now actually. I think the ridges + colors make them feel a little more bad ass. They’re ideal for anyone growing out their bangs or wanting to accessorize a bob/lob.

These 4 miscellaneous fall finds are going with me in my suitcase as I’m about to do a lot of traveling. Using this dried flower TIARA in my client’s desert wedding this October. You can never have too many quick METAL COMB accessories to slip behind the ear with wavy hair! Last but not least, I got this INDIGO WRAP + yellow TURBAN WRAP for those days when I just don’t wanna deal!

EAR JACKETS

Jewelry isn’t typically in our wheelhouse but all this shopping has us feeling very inspired! And if something sparkly on the ear makes your pulled back ponytail look even more chic, then it’s our beauty duty to tell you about it. These gems are called ear jackets. Some come with one (meant to be worn with a stud on the other side) and some come as a pair. Maybe you’ve heard of them, maybe you haven’t. They’re basically an accessory that attaches to the back of your earring and dangles below your earlobe, adding a very cool-girl vibe to your look. Some are spiky, some rounded and some come in shapes. We have gathered up our favorites, so whether you’re spending a hundred or a couple dollars, there’s something in here for you!

TBD + GAP STYLD.BY

When we were asked to participate in the Styld.By campaign for the GAP in Rue Magazine, not only were we totally honored, but we thought this would be a great way to introduce ourselves to you guys one at a time! We’re always working behind the scenes here at TBD to create new beauty tutorials, but we never really pop out to say hello. I’m Kristin Ess and I do the hair + nail tutorials.
I started doing hair at 15 and have never looked back. In the hair industry, as some of you probably know, wearing all black is essential because we’re SO GOOD at ruining our clothes with hair color. When I’m not working in my salon, I have way more room to play with color and I really enjoy that time. For the GAP Styld.By campaign, they asked us to mix something of our own with something from the GAP. I thought that was pretty cool because full outfits rarely come from one store. I brought a long pleated yellow skirt  with me and immediately gravitated toward a grass green striped GAP tank and colorful accessories. Stylist Jen Pinkston then rolled up the sleeves on this super soft GAP denim button down, pinned a red rosette on it and I was in heaven. This is now one of the most comfortable + colorful outfits I own.

The Mag: Working on this with the uber-stylish Rue Magazine was amazing because we were really collaborating with friends. That’s truly what the blogging and web world is all about, isn’t it? One of my closest friends Angela Kohler, took all of the photos. She’s been working with us at TBD since day one and I’ve even forced her to be in one of my  braid tutorials! I always say- everyone should know how great it feels to have Angela take their photo. Another one of my closest and mostest, Bri, designed the layout in this issue of Rue and every issue before that. She’s just plain brilliant. Rue is an incredible online magazine packed to the sparkling brim with inspiration. Check it out and you’ll be hooked!
