@ Tory, probably some sort of texturizing spray to get a better grip on the hair. Dry shampoo also works..

What product did he put in a the very beginning of the video? the one he blow-dried into her hair?

I have kinda become obsessed with headpieces. They are all super nice and elegant. I gotta try this headwear too! It's fit for any occasions.

Post image for with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair

when i first saw our may catalog photos, my eyes were immediately drawn to the amazing floral headpieces on the models.  this type of lei is called a haku lei, and they typically have a base of braided leaves into which other plants and flowers are woven, and are worn on the head or around the wrist or ankle.

i agree completely with angelique. also, many girls are just very skinny. I had a friend in high school who was picked on for being "anorexic" and having no boobs, but she was just like that naturally, and i fact DID eat a regular amount of food.
Angelique -Jul 25, 2011, 11:45PM
Well, it's a double standard, don't you think? Why is it right to trash the skinnier girls and only endorse curvier women? All girls have a right to feel beautiful, and I think the girl in the photograph looks gorgeous. Then again, so would a slightly larger girl and so would an even heavier one. Big may be beautiful, but that doesn't mean that slim is not. (And this is coming from a 180-lb girl, who is your dreaded size 14.)

one of our designers had the coolest hair style yesterday- she braided ribbons into her hair! she said it’s actually really easy- knot the ribbon into your hair at the start of the braid, making sure the ribbon is longer than your hair. Read more »

Post image for april catalog diary: day one hair and makeup

the theme for the catalog was the elements – contrasting a muted palette and soft colors for earth and air on day one with bold, bright colors and tribal elements for fire and water on day two.  keeping with this theme, the makeup on day one was very natural and clean, giving sasha pivovarova the appearance of not wearing any makeup at all.

What would I say to my hair stylist to get this haircut?
meg -Nov 15, 2011, 3:34PM
what brand of hair extensions was used for her fishtail? My hair is a similar color and I would love to recreate the look.

hair tip!

Post image for hair tip!

so a couple of you have asked us how we get our models’ hair so relaxed, wavy and perfect… which is a great question. so i asked our hair/makeup artist deanna and here is her method! i tried it out myself and it works wonderfully…

first, slightly dampen hair with a styling spray – she uses bumble and bumble.

next, separate the hair into two pieces down the center. then separate those two into two. start with 2 strands, either the left side or the right of head,  and twist the hair away from the face. then take the 2 twisted strands and twist them together. secure on top of head with a hair clip.

allow time to dry, then remove clips and shake out hair.

and that’s it!

I have curly/wavy hair and this doesn't give me that bed head look. Any help? Thanks
supergirl -Nov 15, 2010, 9:01AM
haha, beautiful hair style, very natural. Will this work even on super thin hair?

Post image for pink hair for hope

as you guys probably know, october is breast cancer awareness month.  i wanted to share a cool thing you can do to support the cause, called pink hair for hope.  through the month of october, participating salons will put a pink hair extension in your hair for $10, with all proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. this is such a great idea and a fun way to raise awareness! i think i’m going to have to re-dye the ends of my hair to be pink again :)

for more info click here.

Cat horn -Oct 13, 2010, 9:55AM
I want to find a place in Philly that is participating in this. What a great way to show support.
Amanda -Oct 11, 2010, 1:16AM
I agree with vero. Where is the info to tell us where to get the pink extensions at?
