BOOOO.

FYI: Lessons From My Prom

Way back when in the old days (jk, last year) I went to prom and some very clear “I wish I would have __________” lessons were established. Everyone tells you to take lots of pictures, wear a corsage, and dance to early 2000s Bey, but there are a few other tips I wish I’d known. Although many things have changed since *2013* (like how ombre hair is no longer worn by everyone), much is the same. Something will probably go terribly wrong during your getting-ready process, the DJ might not get around to playing the best song ever that you requested, and your date might be MIA by 11 pm. Regardless, prom is your last official high school bash, and these lessons will help you make it memorable in a good way. read more…

HOW TO: Make Art On Your Head (With Bobby Pins)

It seems like whenever I buy a package of bobby pins, 95% of them go missing within a few weeks. This is probably due to both my inability to put them back when I’m done wearing them and my need to try out 1500 different ways to decorate my head with them. Bobby pins may have been invented to plunge hidden from sight into the depths of our sock buns, but they can also be worn so that they are visible in a ton of cool ways. From the simple to the space-age (see above), here are a few ways to let your bobby pins see the light of day. read more…

Your Comprehensive Guide To: Wearing Things On Your Head

It’s wintertime in the city, and that means the arrival of one thing that every self-respecting individual detests most. Nope – it’s not the slushy streets or blustering winds, but the oh-so-dreaded hat hair.

Okay, okay. Is hat hair really that bad? The static look can definitely come in handy in certain situations – at a science convention, perhaps, or when you’re taking the subway alone and want to avoid any and all potential conversations with strangers. But for the most part, winter hair is a bother – and that’s exactly why I’ve compiled this handy list of headwear & hairstyle combinations to keep you looking cute and unruffled through the next fews months of winter hell bliss.

Beauty R00Lz: Fake Freckles

I’ve always wanted a strategically placed mole or a peppering of freckles across my nose – sans any UV damage. But is coveting freckles a case of envying the (seemingly) greener pastures from my current standing point? Probably. Thankfully, with makeup I can try the look out and decide if this desire is warranted or not.

The beauty rule I’m breaking this week: Don’t draw temporary spots on our skin for no reason (I guess?). read more…
