are these easy to take out? been wanting to try dreads, but scared if they look bad and i cant take em out easily

Okay, people with real dreads, calm down. No these don't look like real dreads, they are meant to be a TEMPORARY look. No one is saying these are real, no they don't look as good as real dreads, but there's no need to be so condescending to people not ready to try the real thing. Gracious sakes...

Post image for 4 Tricks To Make Perfume Last All Day

I love perfume. I think it’s so cool to have a signature scent that adds to the ambiance of who you are, and one that people remember you by. Scent is the most powerful memory trigger. Just one small trace of a scent can take your mind right back to a specific place, event, person, or period of time. Read more »

Great tip about applying a lotion before putting on perfume. I didn't know about that and I can't wait to try it and see if my perfume will last longer. I'm on the run all day and usually have a small spray type perfume in my bag, so maybe I won't to carry it anymore!

Amber Romance by Victoria's Secret is my signature scent and what I usually do to make the scent last longer is by getting vaseline (Petroleum Jelly) rubbing it on my pulse points and then spraying my body spray. It makes the scent last longer because the jelly keeps the scent.

Post image for Short Hair Styling Tips From FP Girls

I have long hair but in the summertime I’m always tempted to chop it off…in this heat, shorter locks seem so much lighter and cooler.  The last time I cut my hair short was years ago and I never knew how to style it, so I’ve kept it long ever since.  But I always envy those girls who pull it off so well — for example, Anja Rubik’s perfectly tousled locks in our July book. It seemed like the perfect time to get some styling tips from our home office girls who rock the shorter hair — those of you with short hair, share your tips in the comments! Read more »

It's really nice to find a short haired related post! I have a pixie haircut and I'd love to see how would you style it! You should do more about it please! It was really refreshing :)

Just cut my hair short and running low on inspiration, so this post was perfect! Really loving the last one, can't wait to try it!

Post image for How To Get A Spa Pedicure At Home

It’s the season of adventure and we’re all outside, using our feet as much as possible. I love treating myself to a spa pedicure here and there, but what I love even more is treating myself to a pedicure in my very own home. What I’ve found is that I can create my ideal experience all on my own, and that I already have access to all the necessary supplies! Read more »

Hair dryers are truly a great equipment for hair. Hair dryers with its hot and cold features helps us to change our hair style like we want. I have been using it for some months now and I really like it.

I make up a concoction of eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil and water in a spray bottle and spray the sheets every couple of days. Keeps the cats off the bed at least for an hour or so...I also leave my wardrobe doors open on fine days and widely open all the windows plus I have some small wooden balls I soak in essential oil (when I remember). For times when I feel less prosaic I have another spray bottle of gardenia and water which I generally just spray around the room. Lovely, nearly exotic and not too expensive.

The soap in the drawer is genius! Going to have to try that. Lavender is definitely a calming aromatic. Great ideas you've posted. Thanks!

Post image for Tricks To Naturally Lengthen Your Eyelashes

On a day-to-day basis, the only eye makeup I wear is mascara. I naturally have long eyelashes, so a few swipes and I’m good to go. People tend to ask me what my trick is, and without having any specific one, it made me curious as to what natural remedies there actually are for lengthening your eyelashes. After doing some research, I found out that most of the tricks are fast and extremely simple. You won’t notice results right away, but if you use these tricks often, your eyelashes should start to lengthen and thicken overtime! Read more »

I was a toe-head blonde till I was eight and then went to an ugly mousy brown most of my teens till I discovered coloring it. Last year, at 40, I had then luxury of spending a year in Florida by a pool for a year. Being completely in the sun for a year brought back my natural blonde. I worried constantly about chlorine damage, so I discovered the baking soda/vinegar method (although I use white vinegar only). I haven't used reg shampoo since. I will also point out my grew out over 6 inches that year and when I returned home, I needed a cut. I refused to let anyone touch my hair while I was away. My hairdresser was shocked at the immaculate condition my hair was in, texture was. For a woman who swam every day, I had no dead hair. I ended up only needing less than 1/2 inch trimmed off. I will say, a year later, due to me mis-reading a box, my white blonde is gone (and trust me, I sobbed in the shower!!!) I was trying to just do my roots and grabbed the wrong box and ended up with light dark brown. Everyone loves it but me. But I still continue to do my baking soda/vinegar routine. I will never use shampoo again. I have naturally curls, and that system has brought such life to my hair. So now about 6 weeks later, the only way to describe my color is that is a very pale brown but when the light hits it just right, it glistens completely blonde. It's really weird. But after reading all these comments about the honey, cinnamon and tea, I know what I will be doing to my hair tonight. And don't forget ladies, if you ever get a really dried out head or too much damage from your flat iron, a great relaxing Sunday morning pampering is a beaten egg mixed with a cup of mayo and let it sit for about 2 hours. I even put a bag on my head so keep the heat in!!! Rinse it really well and talk about shine and softness for weeks. Also, after my baking soda/vinegar, I always condition, then after my shower, I wrap my hair in an old t-shirt, NEVER a towel. It decreases breakage, softer (think about it!) and then let it towel dry as I do my makeup. Then I always apply some argan oil, which has been my go to for over two years. And it won't hurt you to put a drop of regular conditioner in before applying your styling products. It acts as a mini buffer. This routine has been working for me for a few years, and honestly, I only chemically treat my roots, and because I take such good care of my hair, and quite possibly because I don't use a flat iron it, I'm able to go up to nice months between cuts. How well you take care of your care of your hair can determine a lot of the breakage. Best of luck everyone!!! Thank you for the advice!!

Post image for Going Makeup-Free – For The First Time In 11 Years

Ever since I discovered the joys of mascara and eyeliner back in middle school, I’ve worn makeup every day. Every single day for the past 11 years — except for a small handful of times when I was sick or just wasn’t leaving the house. I love makeup. I think it’s so much fun getting all dolled up, or even just adding a touch of blush here and a little mascara there to draw some attention to some of my features.

What I don’t love, however, is the feeling that I need to wear makeup. I know that beauty comes from within and that I’m still me no matter what product is on my face, but somehow over the years I seem to have developed a dependency on it. Read more »

Every year during the month of February I go makeup-less partly because it's the shortest month, and partly because it's the month of love, not just to others, but also towards oneself

It's a Friday night & I am reading old posts- LOL. I absolutely love this article. It is so real & embodies exactly what Free People is about. My Monday will be sans makeup. Thanks for the post- so authentic!

Post image for 4 Ways To Whiten Your Teeth

There are so many products available these days to whiten your teeth, but they can be incredibly pricey. I’ve tried certain methods, but the results never seem to last (which probably also has to do with the amount of coffee I drink). Read more »

I didn't know that about the orange. Very interesting I never would have guessed. A local dentist in North Canton, OH does a really good professional cleaning for an affordable price. Check him out. http://www.jsugliodds.com/

The work triangle should be free of the flow of traffic. Don't be overwhelmed by the design and color when you shop for kitchen cabinets. You may already have your own carrier for your art supplies, but if you need extra carrying capacity you may wish to adapt an ice chest on wheels or backpack tote, which are great for the extra papers, beads and artist's needs.

Post image for Hair Love: Accessorizing The Low Bun

Lately we are all about the low bun here at Free People. I love the effortless look of hair pulled back and knotted in a messy bun at the back of the neck – and how it appears very chic and put-together at the same time. To create a little more interest, I love adding in accessories like hair combs and bun picks. Read more »
