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 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 :)
our makeup artist deanna shows you how to get a fresh spring look! featuring the lovely model klara.
the products used are as follows:

if you want to try out this look, here are the products she used:

– apply pale pink all over lid up to brow

– to intensify the pigment, apply a face gloss (she used MAC gloss creme brilliance); aquafor will also do the trick.
lashes: maybelline colossal volume mascara
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…
This video is just beautiful; it features stunning photos of Congolese women by photographer Finbarr O’Reilly. There are also a few words about their distinctive hairstyles. It’s interesting to see a little something about the women of Congo, since usually one only hears of the violence there.
Remember the super pretty hair wraps our stylist Monica did for the December catalog? Well we recently made a little video in which Monica shows us how we can make the hair wraps too!
To my delight, I got to have my hair be the example, so I had awesome wraps in my hair for a while! It was so fun! You guys should definitely try it! Find the tutorial below – enjoy!
