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.

Nothing can be perfect. Imperfection is in some way essential to all that we know in life. Imperfections make you enchanting; make you unique; make you interesting. If you were perfect it would get pretty boring over time.Read More

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!

Aww..I wished I read this before using freshly squeezed lemon juice, although I was tempted to use Vitamin C powder instead. Lemon juice dried my hair completely despite I used a deep conditioner treatment. It did stripped lots of purple and titanium (Joico Intensity) hair color, I want to change to auburn for fall/winter. This girl I met had purple hair she put mahogany over purple it turned Green, she had to bleached hair. Thank you everyone

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

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

Please Please do a video on how to 'bun' your hair..I have been wanting to wear it for so long but my medium length curly hair just does stay put in a bun.

Post image for Beauty Trick: Make Nail Polish In Any Color

When it comes to nail polish, I often have a hard time finding colors that suit me. I feel that I can always find a ton of bright, pretty colors, but my red hair and pale skin always have me wishing for earthy greens and browns, which just aren’t as abundant in nail colors. I recently discovered a way to make my own nail polish in any color, and it totally blew my mind. It’s so easy! All you need is clear nail polish and eye shadow!Read More

I was wondering how it would look if you put the pony tail to the side, over the shoulder, will the elastic be visible?
