A Garden-Inspired Hair Tutorial

We all know that the key to perfect make up application and hair styling is natural lighting. Unfortunately, my bathroom only has fluorescent overhead lighting, so often I take to the floor and get ready in front of a giant mirror. Plus, it means Georgette can help me! On this occasion, I was joining friends for a garden party and felt like complementing my breezy, romantic ivory dress with some festive delphinium blooms.

Whenever possible, I incorporate fresh blooms into my hair styles. I find that it lends a certain air of romance to any look. Today I want to show you how to re-create my favorite ethereal, garden nymph-inspired hair style!

Also, GREAT NEWS: When you buy U by Kotex at Target, you’ll receive free Goody hair elastics (Only at Target)! You know, the tampons/pads in the little black box. Simply text ‘KOTEX’ to ‘TARGET’ (827438) to get your coupon! I especially love that Goody offers elastics that are close to my hair color.

    I so wish I could do my own hair. I do the same thing every day and it gets real boring real fast.
