i LOOOOOOVE Uniqlo. every time i saw one in New York i’d turn to Anton and say, UNIQLO! i first discovered them in London many years back, and i still have some of their lovely woollen cardigans that i bought about 7 years ago in my cupboard. they’ve just launched this sweet series of how-to hairdos, pairs with new looks from their winter range. you can see them on their website or pinterest.
the one thing i’m pretty sure about re: the wedding is that i don’t want to hire a hair / make-up artist. i’m not high maintenance when it comes to these things, and besides getting the right primer & foundation i think i’ll be okay following a couple of youtube tutorials (practice makes perfect, right?). same goes for the hair, which i’d like to wear in a simple up-do or some kind of a pretty braided style (that’s where my bridesmaids and sisters-in-law come in).
i haven’t been able to get the beautiful hair accessories by Brook&Lyn and Jujumade out of my mind since they launched their LA colab series recently. why don’t we dress up our hair more? i’m not one to talk, since i barely ever wear my hair out of a top knot (yes i’m one of those). but it would be nice to see our tresses a bit more jazzed up. not in a diamanté alice band way (shudder) – just in a casual “oh this ceramic barrette? i wear it all the time” way.
my hair is so long now, i often braid it and just put it up – milkmaid style. i’d really love to learn how to do a french braid though, someone teach me? click on the pics for the originals
