Post image for the rainbow braid

a lot of you have been asking about the amazing technicolor fishtail braid in our september catalog.  well lucky for us, our videographer was on hand to film the process! check it out…

How to do Amazing Rainbow Fishtail Braids by Free People from FreePeople on Vimeo.

it’s actually pretty simple! our team bought colored extensions at a hair/beauty supply store and glued them into model karolina’s hair, then carefully braided them into the fishtail.  the rainbow effect is stunning!

the song in the video is “woh woh yea yea” by the dynamos.

When you glue the extensions to the models head, how long does it take for it to come out?

Post image for purple

when i was in the photo studio last week for our latest how-to style session, i kept finding myself admiring our associate stylist’s hair! she died her ends purple and i think it looks awesome – as a fellow brunette who loves the whole colored hair trend, i’ve often wondered what colors would look good with brown hair and i think purple definitely does! it’s subtle but still catches the eye.

I love your blog!! its so cute and simple! the pics and the videos are really pretty and simple!! i really really love this photo! i have brown hair and i want to die my hair purple, but im not quite sure how i want to do it! Now I do!! Thanks so muchh!!!

i just noticed that lately i’ve been really drawn to face and bodypaint.  i keep saving photos of it. i love how it makes such a bold, colorful statement… but i’m not sure when or if i’d ever be able to pull this off…  if i was going to burning man i would definitely be rocking some paint.  what do you guys think?

Post image for hot hair tip!

so last month we made a little video showing you how to do a fishtail braid – and this month we have a kickass way to spice up your fishtail braid! our stylists and hair/makeup artist are loving this look right now – colorful streaks woven into the braid!

Now this can be done many ways- you can do one color or three, you can actually dye streaks in your hair, or you can put in colored extensions.

for the braid in these images our hair/makeup artist used extensions. she mixed blond, blue, purple and pink extensions together and spread them out before braiding them into a fishtail, which she then clipped into the model’s hair. simple enough, right?

here it is on a larger scale in our august catalog:

i love it and i am definitely going to try it!

Direct sunlight is one of the common causes of hair damage. Even when you are wearing hair extensions, still protect your extensions and most especially your real hair from direct sunlight.
Lia -Mar 16, 2011, 10:15PM
This is lovely! I'm actually about to purchase some purple hair extensions but how did you get the color to be such an earthly, faded color?

i have been dying to learn how to do this ever since i first saw it on some of the models on our website! watch as our makeup artist (and fishtail braid expert!) deanna demonstrates how to do a fishtail braid like the ones on our website and in the pages of our july catalog. featuring our lovely shoe buyer :)

song is “dream baby dream” by black tambourine.

Shannon -Jan 18, 2013, 6:31PM
I love the look, but the video didn't help me understand it . I think it would help if, instead of music, the stylist was speaking and explaining how to do it step by step. I have to say watching it being quickly braided with loud music didn't help at all.
Rosalie -Aug 07, 2010, 4:55PM
yay im so excited i finally figuured out how to do it! if only i didnt have so many layers ! :)

i can almost see whats going on through the filters. i understand adding effects and filters can make the video look nice but when you are posting a tutorial (on makeup especially) this much is unnecessary and excessive. i can barely even see what she looks like at the end ???
Fashion CHALET -Dec 16, 2009, 10:37PM
Sooo glad you guys have a blog. Your clothing and stores are amazing!! =) Great Holiday "how to" video. xx

We have been so excited about the new make-up we just started to sell! We had one of our models, Renata, play with some of the samples and see what she thought. Check out the little video below, it’s really cute and fun! I can’t wait to get some sparkly eye-liner…
