Messy Waves For Fall Tutorial!

Messy_waves_for_fall

Hey guys I’m back! And tomorrow is my birthday! Over Labor Day my family threw me a pre-birthday bash. So my friend, Kristen (our beautiful model), and I thought why not make a tutorial whilst getting ready. Since Summer was all about the “Beachy waves”, I made a tutorial to transition into messy waves for the Fall! Enjoy!

First things first, (yes I thought of “Fancy”) apply some heat protectant starting from the middle to the ends of your hair. After that we are going to section off the hair by putting the top half in a bun. Start curling the bottom half, grabbing 1 inch sections and wrapping them around your curling iron (pointing down). For the sections in the front, curl the hair away from the face and as you move to the back curl the hair in different directions. Also if you don’t have a curling wand, don’t fret just use a regular curling iron but don’t open the clasp (as I did).

YAY, finished with the bottom! We are half way there! Now do the same thing with the top part.

Looking good Kristen!    (TIP: feel free not to have a straight part. The whole point of the look is to be tousled and messy 🙂 )

Once you’re finished curling your hair, you’re going to put some mousse in. I’m using Fudge Urban’s Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Styling Mousse! Rub it together in your hands and scrunch right in. This mousse is anti frizz and smells AMAZING!

Voila! You are done! Look at those B-E-A-U-TI-FUL messy, tousled waves!

If you want to try something different and dress up the look, try this lovely and easy half up do! Just carefully gather some hair from the top section and wrap it up in to a bun (kind of like this), secure with bobby pins and done! Have fun! Muah!

LFW: Giles Fall 2014

The fifth and final show I chose was Giles for the London Fashion Week! Grunge meets posh? The fall 2014 collection was full of motorcycle pants, color blocking, gloves, beanies, plaids, birds, and other fun prints. Giles Deacon, known for his exaggerated gowns, didn’t disappoint. Towards the end of the show there were gowns with giant bugs printed on them. The pieces that I loved were the shorter dresses. The first one was a kind of a babydoll styled dress but the print and knit hat grunged it up a bit. The second was what I thought to be a great cross of chic and grunge. It was a long sleeved tunic paired with motorcycled pants. I loved the short tailored jacket in the third picture with the printed puffy sleeves. And the half sleeved coat in the fourth picture was very stylish. Model Cara Delevingne, posted some videos of her strutting down this runway on her Instagram (you can see her phone in hand in picture #1). And that’s it! That was the end to my five favorite collections from this years Fall/Winter Fashion Weeks! 🙂

LFW: Sister by Sibling Fall 2014

The fourth of the five is Sister by Sibling at the London Fashion Week. They are the masters of crocheting and knits! The garments were torn and hand crocheted together. Each piece was worked on for one hundred hours. I have always loved anything magical like witches (good of course), so it would make sense that one of my favorite movies is Practical Magic. I also loved the famous show American Horror Story: Coven! This collection reminded me of the show because of the black hats the ladies wore. The crocheting in the gowns gave off the breezy rustic vibe that Practical Magic had. I just loved the way all the dresses hung. I would love to twirl around in one of them. I also loved the detail of the dark grey socks with the black pumps. This runway was wicked fabulous!

NYFW: SB47 Fall/Winter 2014

New York and London Fashion Week 2014 has come and gone 🙁 . And even though Milan’s Fashion Week is still in session, there was so many fabulous shows and such amazing designers that it was difficult for me to choose a favorite. I was a bit bummed that I left London a week before the Spring/Summer 2014 London Fashion Week started. So I thought that this time around I would choose 5 of my favorite shows from Fall 2014 Fashion Weeks and a few looks from each that I loved.

The first of the five is, SB47 from New York Fashion Week! Stylish, sleek, black, and LEATHER, are definite musts in my eyes. These four looks are my favorite from the collection because the pieces are nothing too crazy and you can’t help but look bad ass in them (haha yes I said that). Absolutely love everything about these outfits!
