Who: The Anglophile What: Soap & Glory You Cube, $25 Why: She will adore this line of body and skincare, not only because it’s a cult British brand with a cheeky sense of humor (the line is nicknamed the “Clean of England”), but also its formulas will leave skin supple and her, totally pampered.
Bumble and bumble‘s Executive Director of Creative Education Bronwen Melvin taught us how to turn up the heat (without using hot tools) on the classic ponytail.
Step 1: Mist Bumble and bumble Classic Hairspray throughout dry hair for grip and pull hair into a ponytail at the back of the head.
Step 2:At random, secure small sections of the ponytail any which way to the back of the head with hair pins, forming a loose chignon.
Step 3: Spray Bumble and bumble Shine On Finishing Spray into hands and simply loosen small sections of hair on either side and the top of the head to add dimension. If pieces fall out, angle them to the back of the head and secure with hair pins.
Win it: Get a chance to win all the essentials to create the head turning style: Bumble & bumble Classic Hairspray, Shine on Finishing Spray, Winter White Pin of Tins, & Styling Lotion at 10am PST on our Twitter channel. Good luck!
