SUMMER HAIR IDEA

photos/post/graphic design: Kristin Ess

A while back I had posted the photo above on my personal instagram. It was a photo of Lauren’s hair while we were on set of her Kohl’s photoshoot. Some of you wanted to know how to do this braid/twist combo. Thought I would re-create it for a tutorial. Would be a great look for a wedding, a date or just a weekend out and about with your bests. Here’s how to get the look in 6 simple steps.

You will need: 2 small clear elastics, 2 small bobbypins, 2 large bobby pins, your flat iron (for waves), and some delicate flora. (more…)

ON THAT NOTE

This was a very busy week for all of us. We were shooting Lauren’s Kohls campaign for the last few days, working on the new videos for our youtube page, and going through the hair tutorials that you guys submitted for our very first “guest post” contest. We’re really excited about the upcoming posts and videos (like the waterfall braid!) and we can hardly stand the wait!┬áHope you all have a nice weekend and we will see you back here on Monday!

 

ON SET

Last week was really long, and really fun. We always have the best time on our Kohl’s shoots. This time I took some photos of Lauren so you all can get an idea of the shenanigans that go on behind the scenes:

1. The benefit to having cake and cookie props is we’re told we can eat them after. And we do.

2. Believe me, she’s an animal. Lauren was freezing and standing in the middle of a Malibu wind storm. Her wardrobe stylist Britt put a blanket around her and this just happened. Meow.

3. Prim, proper + polished. Right here Lauren, Amy Nadine and I were having a water drinking contest. She who could drink the most water through out the day would get to tweet what ever they wanted from the other two’s twitter accounts. Right about here we called it a truce. All around bad idea.

4. Kohl’s brought in an incredible vintage Mercedes for Lauren to drive off in at the end of the collection video. This thing was amazing, but it had a very tricky, very sticky clutch, so Lady Lauren steered as all the manly men on set pushed this gorgeous hunk of metal down the driveway.

5. RIVER! Lauren asked for a puppy. On the last day they surprised her with this little gem. He stole the show. Obviously.
