BEAUTY BAR: Bouncy And Braided Blowout

Living in a region that experiences the change of seasons is so exciting, especially during the fall and winter months. Some complain about the arrival of cold weather, some embrace it. No matter which side of the temperature preference you’re on, Fashionistas everywhere will agree that the colder months are prime time for taking hair and beauty trends outdoors.

I love going to school in the South, but you’ll hardly ever catch me spending more than 10 minutes on my hair because the second I walk outside, the humidity takes total control. I typically enjoy this fact (who doesn’t love salt spray and mermaid waves), but when you’re feeling a blowout, northern winters win.

For this Fashionista’s look, she took full advantage of these fall perks. A bouncy blowout topped with a braid and completed with some loose girls complements her natural makeup and neutral toned outfit.

I love the way she matches her faux fur vest with her grey leather lace-up booties. The warm rosiness in her jersey-knit dress also brings out subtle pinks in her eye shadow and blush, giving her make-up a gorgeous natural glow and drawing attention to her ice-blue eyes. Topped with a statement crystal necklace, this Fashionista aces fall/ winter photoshoot fashion.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: In order to execute this look, you’ll need to get acquainted with your curling iron and braiding skills. These basic additions add interest and fun to just a normal blowout. Set your ‘do with a hairspray that won’t leave your curls crunchy. For your face: match lips, eye shadow and cheeks with the hue of your outfit and you’ll achieve this same gorgeous glow.
