THE ONLY WAY TO POP!

I tell my clients this so much, I feel like a broken record. If you squeeze a whitehead:

  • you inflame it and the tissue around it
  • it bleeds and scabs over, making it harder to cover up
  • it ends up lasting a week instead of a few days
  • you might even damage the skin, leaving you with a scar.

But I get it. You wake up and there’s an unsightly whitehead on your chin. You can’t go to work or class and subject your peers to it. They’ll lose their appetites! But that doesn’t mean you should annihilate your face either and walk in with a scab. Here’s what you can do instead: (more…)

It’s hot out. If you want to get long hair off your neck in a fancy way, create a fishtail braid to one side (tutorial coming soon!) and tie it off with a clear elastic. Wrap it around the front of your head, following the hairline and pinning it as you go. As I pin, I like to use larger bobby pins at first, and then move to smaller ones as I get toward the end. The bigger bobby pins give more support and help hold up the heaviest part of the braid which is the base. Last you want to tuck the tail of the braid under and pin to hide the elastic. I wouldn’t even brush it. Just let the texure be. SO gorgeous!
