CollegeFashionista x Sarah Potempa: DIY Hair-ccasions

Exclusive Feature, From the Editor

No look is complete without the right hair style. Consider it the calorie-free, symbolic cherry on top of a high-fashion sundae. And while I scour my favorite websites, blogs and magazines for fashion inspiration, I’m equally intrigued by the enviable hair styles that always seem nearly impossible to recreate.

Lucky for our readers, we partnered up with innovative hairstylist, Sarah Potempa, to create looks for a few occasions every college student experiences during this season. Sarah has an amazing portfolio of clients and an equally amazing product line. From finals to holidays parties to winter break spent back home, your hair is sure to look stunning and occasion appropriate with the help of Sarah’s brilliant instructions and amazing products.

Check out her Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen-esque half-up hair do that is not only chic, but is super simple to do during the stress of finals.

Step 1: Pull your hair into a half up ponytail and get your Half Up tool. (Comes in brown, blonde and black!)

Step 2: Open Half Up, pull hair through, pinch closed and slide up.

Step 3: Roll forward towards your head, bend left and right sides back to create a bun.
