Get the Look: Amy Winehouse

Today the world lost one of the best new-age soul singers, Amy Winehouse. To commemorate her passing, this Get the Look tutorial will be centered around her iconic look.

When it comes to Amy’s, it’s “go big or go home.” Literally. Big hair, boobs, make-up and tattoos. Not all of us have the ability (or courage) to pull off such a “large” look. Here are some ideas to get a more tame and tailored classic pin-up style.

30 Day Hair Challenge: Romantic Hair


Time: 15 minutes
Products: 1″ curling iron, 2 bobby pins, hairspray, headband, round brush, hair tie

Usually my look is edgy, so I wanted to try something a little softer.

1. Start by curling all of your hair.

2. Take the back portion of your hair and using a round brush, backcomb your hair. Spray with hairspray, then carefully run the edge of a regular brush over the teased hair to smooth.

3. Pin the teased hair into a poof in the back.

4. With a hair tie, pull your hair into a sloppy bun. Make sure the bun is a little off to the side.

5. Carefully put on your headband. (Secure with bobby pins if needed.)

6. Pull a couple of pieces of hair out from the front, re-curl, twist and tuck back under the headband.

30 Day Hair Challenge: Loose Curls, Half-Up


Time: 10 minutes
Products: 1″ curling iron, 2 bobby pins, hairspray

This is one of my favorite looks because it is so simple, yet elegant at the same time! A perfect day-time look that can easily be taken into a night-time look with a little more volume and heavier make-up.

1. Start by curling your hair in 1″ wide strands. (If you are not good at curling your hair or don’t know how to, check out Lauren Conrad’s awesome video tutorial here.)

2. Take strands of hair on each side of your head. Twist the strands towards your head.

3. Secure in the back with 2 bobby pins. Finally, spray with hairspray.
