photos + post designed by Kristin Ess

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON JUNE 30th.

Practice, practice, practice! The best way to learn new braids is to just TRY them! A lot of times we look at photos of braided hairstyles and say “I could never do that!”, but a lot of our favorite braids have been total accidents… like this, this and this. You just start braiding and weaving and see what happens. The best part about braids is there are no rules. These snail braids are no exception! Below, we’ve illustrated how the pattern of a snail braid, but everyone’s hair (and head shape/size) is going to be different, so the customizing the style is up to you. We would love to see you gorgeous gals (and guys?) give this hairstyle your best shot. Here’s the challenge: (more…)

A lot of you ladies have been writing in and asking what is the best way to communicate with your stylist about what you would like done with your hair.  This is especially important if you are making a drastic change.  We suggest that you always bring at least one photo in with you because pictures are a universal language. Want to go shorter? Change up your color? Try out bangs? Then get online and print out some photos or start flipping through magazines.  When your hair stylist has only “sort of reddish – brownish, but not too dark. Ya know?” to go off of then things can easily get lost in translation.  So reduce confusion on your next visit to the salon and bring along a visual.
