We get asked to do braided hair styles all the time! One that we absolutely love for summer time is “The Milk Maid Braid”. It’s pretty and easy to do on yourself. This was Tabitha’s first time ever doing this and we think she did such an amazing job. You can create many versions of this: tight, loose, fishtail, add fabric, whatever you want! I like to pull loosen it up with a crochet hook, but you can also pull it apart with just your fingers! That’s the beauty of individual style. Get creative. This can be done on practically any hair type. If you have straight hair like Tabitha does, I suggest curling the ends of the hair so that they tuck in easier. Hair that has curl or texture does really well with this updo!

Here’s a simple way to get a vintage inspired look. Eventually we’ll be going into more advanced looks, but some of you may have never tried this look before and we don’t want to scare you off! Pair this video with the “Hint of Vintage” photo tutorial for the ultimate loveliness!

Tools: Foundation, foundation brush or sponge, translucent powder or light-weight powder, blush brush, bronzer, black liquid liner, black mascara, red lipstick

•      Start by applying an even layer of foundation to your face being sure to cover any redness, blemishes or dark circles.

•      Lightly dust your face with powder for a velvety finish.

•      Comb through your brows and fill them in using a brown pencil one shade darker than your natural color.

•      Sweep bronzing powder starting directly under your cheekbones, across your hair line and under your jaw line.

•      Now apply black liquid liner to your lids and extend the line beyond the corner of your eye for added drama.

•      Next apply two coats of black mascara.

•      To complete the look, apply red lipstick.

This is both Lauren and my favorite look right now for so many reasons. It’s classic, it’s quick, it can make you look taller, and you can wear it with almost anything! The ballerina bun can be worn high up on the top of your head or down lower near the back of your neck. Either way, our favorite “go-to-do” for anyone with collar bone length hair or longer.

• Tools: 1″ barrell curling iron, clear elastic or pony tail holder, smoothing + updo brush, 4-6 large bobby pins, firm holding hairspray.

• Using a 1 inch curling iron quickly curl all of your hair under.

• Flip hair over and gather into a high ponytail securing with an elastic or ponytail holder.

• Using your smoothing brush, back comb (lightly tease) hair. (This will help the bun look more voluminous!)

• Twist hair and wrap around the base to create your bun shape.

• Insert bobby pins along the base of the bun, securing it to your head.

• Spray all over with a firm holding hairspray and smooth down fly-aways.

TIP: I like to shake my head side to side to make sure it’s really secure before I finish.



We love a pretty pink pop with no fuss! This “Rosie Romantic” tutorial shows you how to get this simple spring-y look, which is gorgeous for both day and night.

• Apply an even layer of foundation to your skin.

• Apply a rosy cream blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend with your finger tips.

• Apply a rosy lip balm to your lips.

• Line your lash line with a brown pencil and blend with your finger.

• Coat your top and bottom lashes with black mascara.
