Old fashion braids are great, but when you want to change it up a bit, a fishtail braid can be just what you need to make your summer look rock! Just make sure to always start with our Zelo Velvet Gloss
Otherwise known as “Volunteer as tribute? With THIS hair?”
Jennifer Lawrence is definitely my new hair icon! The braids, the bangs, the updos! The girl goes from tomboy to Hollywood glam effortlessly! And how gorgeous was her gold braided updo at the Hunger Games premier? It sent me digging through my jewelry box for gold chains.
How to get Jennifer Lawrence’s updo: Getting her look is actually quite simple. It’s really the gold embellishments that make it look so much more intricate than it really is. Jennifer is using two gold beaded headbands woven into her braids. You can actually just use two gold rope chains.
Start by gathering your hair into a low ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Gather the chain with your hair and braid your hair neatly. Tie the ends with a rubber band. Go back and widen the braid by tugging each side slightly. From there, you’re just doing a simple wrap-around. Wrap your braid around your ponytail (Princess Leia Style) and secure it with bobby pins. Now take your other chain and wrap that around the outer perimeter.
Voila! Simple, right? I know… Please feel free to tell me what a genius I am for dissecting this one.

I wasn’t planning on watching a Santino-free all-star episode of Project Runway but my other all-time favorites, Mondo Guerra and the hilarious Anthony Williams, got me to give in. And boy did I miss my Tim Gun and Heidi Klum! Though I must say the new mentor Joanna Coles, Editor in Cheif of Marie Claire, makes me feel like I’m watching a more friendlier version of the Devil Wears Prada. The new judges were funny but, It doesn’t matter how much I love buying his stuff at Target, Isaac Mizrahi is just NO Michael Kors!
I couldn’t help but notice that the hottest trend on the runway among the seasoned designers was the slicked back ponytail. Personally that’s always my go to choice when I’m feeling fashion forward. It looks clean and simple and it doesn’t detract from the clothes! You want people to check the shoes and the outfit first! Too much of a hair style can make a fashionable look tacky almost instantly. Too bad designer Elisa Jimenez learned that the hard way when she landed in the bottom two.
There are definitely lots ways to add more fun to simple sleek ponytail. My favorite look is the rope braid ponytail. It’s extremely easy to do and perfect for girls with thicker hair.
