BEAUTY BAR: Straight Hair For A Straight-Up Attitude

Hair today, gone tomorrow. Bad puns aside, it’s so easy to totally take your hair for granted. Granted pun number two, we are all born with different loads of locks that vary from curly to kinky, wavy to pin-straight.

This Fashionisa is using her hair as an accessory. People, this is no piece of cake, although some of you may think “How hard can it be to do that? My hair is on my head 24/7…talk about a permanent accessory am I right?!”

I hate to break it to you, but this is not always the case. To use your hair as an accessory does not simply mean that you rely on your clothes and your hair to magically pair well together. We all know from past experience that not everything in life goes as well as macaroni and cheese. The trick to pulling off a well matched ‘do and outfit is to create an entire look. This Fashionista is using her jet-black, straight as nails hair as a clean, no-nonsense accessory for her whimsically adorable outfit. She’s wearing a heather gray tank top dress that I promise is flattering on every single body type. Paired with a grunge pair of Jeffrey Campbell black sandals, she ties everything together with a soft leather Marc by Marc Jacobs cross-over bag. To make this look that much more downtown chic, you gotta pay attention to the hair. Your hair is your best asset, ladies, treat it well! Either straighten or blow dry to achieve a silky, smooth look, circa Pantene Pro-V commercial girls. We want that shine to be so blinding that people have to put on their shades to look at you.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: For an outfit that matches your cool personality, remember that your hair can make or break you. Condition the ends, make sure that there’s enough shine serum to go around. Throw on a comfy short dress and get out in that summer sunshine.
