Post image for exciting internship opportunity!

we are looking for a visual display intern here at the home office! we are looking for someone who is able to work roughly 20-25 hours/week for school credit and able to start ASAP. for more info and to apply, click here.

Caroline Lahti -Dec 02, 2010, 11:27AM
I am a college student but I do not think my school would accept this as credits. Is there any internships that you can do that do not have to transfer into credits?

I am looking for an internship this summer and am in love with Free People. Is it too late to apply for an internship?

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.

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?

apologies for the graininess of these photos… my camera is having a bad day.

I'll be honest, I had no reaction to anything that occurred at that time except being put in the position that I was in on the strange chair that I was on. Dating in today's world can be enough of a challenge of its own...but having HPV, or Herpes in addition to dating can be especially tough. The host cell's nuclear envelop becomes embedded with viral proteins.

Post image for behind the scenes – natalie’s shoot

here are some more photos from behind the scenes of natalie suarez’s day of shooting! as mentioned, she was photographed by her sister dylana at the home of our creative director.  and if the location looks familiar, that’s because we featured it in our second episode of home sweet home back in april – if you missed it, check it out here – it’s pretty amazing.

these photos were taken by thomas northcut and i think they capture the atmosphere on this day of shooting beautifully :)

meet lily!

Post image for meet lily!

as you guys know we have lots of dogs running around our office, but no cats! they are not allowed, because having cats here would also involve kitty litter.  but we had a special visitor today who was being photographed for something coming up – she belongs to our operations coordinator who sits right next to me so i took the chance to ask her some questions. say hello to lily!


Where are you from?

I was born in Villanova, Pennsylvania.  My dad came and adopted me as a present for my mom when she graduated from college.  Now i live in Philadelphia with my mom and dad!

What are your favorite hobbies?

I really like to chase feathers and play hide and seek, and I like to kick things that roll, but sometimes I get in big trouble when my mom is cooking eggs.  Eggs roll really well until they fall off of the counter. I also like to sleep – I take an afternoon siesta every day.  Also, I have a squirrel boyfriend who I like to look at.  I sit on the window sill and stare at him, and he stares back at me.  We have a forbidden romance.

What is your biggest fear?

I am afraid of dogs.  They are bigger than me.  I don’t even like when they bark on TV, it makes me nervous.

Favorite foods?

Tuna is my favorite, but I’ve been eating a lot of chicken flavored Iams lately.  It’s pretty delicious.  Oh! And I love to chew on plants, like my dad’s bonsai tree.

Favorite color?

I like orange because I am orange and orange is the best!

What’s your favorite place in the world?

I have a special pillow called the Princess Pillow that is my favorite – it’s one of my mom’s old throw pillows that is covered with a super soft blanket.  I like to sit there and get brushed every day.

How would you describe your personal style?

I am a natural beauty, so I don’t have to try to look fancy.  I know I’m gorgeous.  If I were a free people girl, I’d be a Ginger. If you got it, flaunt it.

Does it bother you that you’re not allowed to come to our office every day like the dogs?

A little bit, I don’t think it’s fair.  Dogs are much louder and smellier than I am.  I am so cute and little! But I also don’t really like to be in a car or my pink carrier case, so I am OK with staying home.

How was your experience working with free people today?

I had a good time.  At first I was nervous, but once I realized what I had to do, it was a pretty sweet deal. I got to wear a pretty necklace and sit on a pile of scarves and be fed treats.  It was like the best day ever.

as promised, the lovely ladies of free people austin lamar have provided step by step instructions on how to put in these rad feather hair extensions! i’m so bummed i didn’t know how to do this all summer long!

step 1: pick anywhere from 3-5 feathers. you can buy the feathers at some hair salons, or order them from etsy.

step 2: pick a small piece of hair- we suggest either under a layer of hair on top, or a small piece of hair underneath, right by the ear.

59647_156220557742710_130662793631820_328140_3071446_n

Step 3: if you don’t have a fancy tool, you can just take a piece of fishing line and loop it! then place the hair extension bead through both ends. you can find these beads at any beauty supply store that carries hair extensions.

59647_156220561076043_130662793631820_328141_1330244_n

step 4: pull the small piece of hair that you selected through the loop.

59647_156220564409376_130662793631820_328142_7552881_n

step 5: move the bead up the fishing line and onto the piece of hair.

59647_156220567742709_130662793631820_328143_1483832_n

step 6: pull the hair through the bead completely, and make sure it stays about an inch from the scalp.

59647_156220571076042_130662793631820_328144_2558340_n

step 7: take your cluster of feathers, and make sure every feather makes it into the bead!

59647_156220574409375_130662793631820_328145_7939431_n

Step 8: once you make sure all of the feathers are in, you can trim any of the excess that is sticking out of the top of the bead.

59647_156220577742708_130662793631820_328146_2154011_n

step 9: take pliers and squeeze the bead until it is completely closed.

59647_156220584409374_130662793631820_328148_2248823_n

VOILA!!! you have beautiful feathers in your hair!!

34709_155783974453035_130662793631820_325624_4271115_n

now if you want to take it a step further, put some feathers on both sides of your head and put your hair into a french braid:

34709_155783961119703_130662793631820_325620_1481755_n

peace of cake ;)

*update*

to remove the feathers you can just pinch the bead with pliers in the other direction to open it and they slide right out. or after a week or two they might slide out on their own.

the feather can get wet, washed, brushed, blown dry and straightened! you can pretty much just treat them like your own hair.
