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.

Bieber Fever, Now with a Scent!

The teen-pop idol, Justin Bieber, has launched his fragrance for his tween stalkers fans called “Someday” at Macy’s. It is a sweet and fruity scent that is perfect for his “Bieblivers.” Bieber described the importance of his fans smelling good to Women’s Wear Daily,

“Let’s be real: The way a girl smells is very important to a guy. I have such a deep connection to my fans, so creating a fragrance that I personally love is another way I can bring them close to my world.”

It might sound a little weird, but think about it… Who wants B.O. infested tweens throwing themselves at you? Honestly, the launch of his fragrance is for Justin’s sake!

Already, his fragrance has done so incredibly well; so far, it has taken in $1 million in the first week. The estimated amount that “Someday” will make is nearly $30 million! But kindly, a portion of the proceeds go toward Make-A-Wish Foundation as well as Pencils of Promise, a charity that builds schools.
