BEAUTY BAR: How About a Little Bit of Hairspiration?

Let’s be honest—the Pacific Northwest has adopted a laid-back and quite hairy lifestyle. Women are sporting cute bob cuts and men are beginning to let their luscious locks grow out past their shoulders. It is no secret that Fashionistas/os are on the hunt for ways to simplify getting ready everyday and to still look rad. From the red carpet to college campuses, people are expressing themselves with a carefree, yet still presentable hairstyle; the man bun.

No matter what type of hair day you are having, don’t give up if you are frustrated—there are plenty of options! I want to emphasize that this goes for both men and women! Don’t feel like putting gel in your hair today? Have no fear! The man bun/topknot is a new staple look among trendsetters. So go ahead, throw your hair up in a topknot and slip on a pair of Seraphin glasses to add a relaxed and modern twist to your outfit. If you don’t need a prescription, you can rock a pair of cheater glasses (no one has to know that you don’t actually need them). Sporting a new style can be intimidating, so make sure to walk out the door with confidence and own your look!

Never be afraid to mix and match styles! This Fashionisto combines skater and hipster clothing items to create a casual, yet sophisticated, look. A neutral color shirt pairs nicely with Nike’s vividly colored Stefan Janoski skater shoes and dark wash jeans. Nike recently collaborated with Pendleton, which resulted in a sleek shoe design that can be used for formal or informal occasions. Since Pendleton and Nike are companies based out of the Pacific Northwest, it allows Washingtonians and Oregonians a chance to channel a more personal fashion statement for two of the region’s most iconic brands.

Last but certainly not least, toss your fear of losing dorm keys out the window with a leather key fob! This is a timeless piece worn around a belt loop that is a great addition to any outfit.

If you want to create a more formal look, keep the hairstyle and glasses, but switch out the casual long sleeve shirt for a flannel and the colorful Pendleton Janoski’s for a solid black or gray color.
