This updo/chignon was kind of a random discovery for short hair. My gorgeous client Katie, who has a long bob, was sitting in my chair and this happened so we thought we’d snap some photos and share since we get a lot of requests for short hair styles! (more…)


TREND HUNTING: We’ve always loved hardware detail on clothing, but what do we think about showing your pretty pins on purpose? It’s kind of cool we think. Would you be excited to see this become a trend?

Saw this gem floating around on Pinterest and I just love it. The super simple addition of a black ribbon can often do the trick. I love the way she used it as a headband and to tie off the braid. Crafty!

The weekend is quickly approaching! Weekends = Flea Markets. One of Lauren’s favorite hair acessories is not a hair accessory at all. It’s a vintage brooch. She collects them from the flea markets and vintage expos, gives them to me and I make them into a new hair accessory. It’s so easy and makes a simple pulled back piece of hair into something much more special. The stones in Lauren’s hair in THIS video were actually 2 clip-on earrings, side by side!

I like to use “Gorilla Glue” + a bobby pin or metal clip. Attach and let it sit overnight.

Head to your local flea market this weekend and start collecting!
