For some reason, I must be subconsciously channeling celebrity trends lately, because I came into work about three times this week wearing the same little twist along my forehead to hold back my bangs – and lo and behold, I came across this Glamour article dubbing the side twist “The Official ‘It’ Hairstyle of the Moment”. Well, how nice is that? Gotta love when you’re accidentally trendy.
I love adding this little flair to my look because it is way easier and faster to create than a braid, yet achieves the same overall look by adding a little bit of thoughtfulness to your hairstyle.
It also works with an up-do, straight hair, curly hair, short hair, long hair – you name it, this style is so versatile.

Question: What can I add to my ends so they won’t look dry?
One of the most widespread hair battles we all encounter at least once in a lifetime has to do with the ends of our hair. Whether it’s ends drying out and creating unwanted frizz, split ends, or breakage – we all deal with it. This is because as we style, brush, whip our hair back and forth, you name it – the very ends of our hair have seen the most tress stress.
Check out three of our tips for keeping your ends looking fresh!
Trim Your Ends Regularly
It is recommended you get your ends cut at least every six to eight weeks, so if you find yourself fretting over dried and split ends, take a peek at your calendar and try to remember your last trim.
Condition Like It’s Your Job
Conditioning is important – but how you condition is more important. If your ends are looking bad, consider adding conditioner to your ends in the shower before you shampoo, let it sit for five minutes, and then shampoo and conditioner as you usually do. Also, consider adding a weekly moisturizing hair mask to your beauty regimen. Check out our earlier post on avocado recipes for hair to get some inspiration.
Use a Gloss
When all else fails, adding a little bit of hair gloss, such as Zelo’s Velvet Gloss, will add shine to ends and make them look less dry. Be careful to only use a little, because most glosses are very thick and just a little bit will go a long way.
I’ll be the first one to admit that most of the time, Kristen Stewart just kind of blends into the crowd. However, I’m also one for second chances, and she really surprised me when I saw her featured on the cover of W Magazine’s Fashion Issue.
Kristen Stewart typically looks like she’d rather be anywhere else than in the spotlight when she is photographed on the red carpet – but some sort of miracle transformed this little Twilight actress into a glamorous looking star.
Her 60′s-esque vintage blowout style is all the rage right now, and I personally think it suits her very well. Hollywood hair at it’s finest.
