UNIQLO Hairdo

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.

A variety of do-it-yourself hair styles paired with looks from the 2013 Fall & Winter collection, based on UNIQLO’s LifeWear philosophy. Capturing the step-by-step process of creating each hair style, Uniqlo HairDo is where style meets utility.

Winnie Truong

Winnie Truong is a Canadian artist whose infinitely detailed drawings are absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing. she has just launched her latest series A Slow Immersion, which is currently showing at the ESP Gallery in Toronto.

The latest drawing series by Winnie Truong continues to explore the artist’s ongoing relationship with hair beyond beauty and accoutrement and into a direction of a object and environs. Through delicate, labor-intensive drawing, Truong’s anomalous subjects examine the possibility of hair as a veil and as an object of comfort, while also remaining a self-consuming and self-inspiring muse.

She Lets Her Hair Down

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 love looking at tutorials for DIY hair on the internet, so i was excited to discover Paris based hairstylist Rubi Jones through film company Lumineux. Rubi has a blog called She Lets Her Hair Down where she often shares hair tutorials on how to style your hair like a pro. she has done a number of wedding hair tuts which look super helpful.

seen any hair and make-up tutorials you’d like to recommend?

i’m also looking forward to seeing the video that Lumineux did on Rubi, as their body of film work is very beautiful. keep an eye on their Vimeo page for that.

Good Hair

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.

also reminded me of this revelation that bobby pins were actually invented to be inserted crinkle side down. did you know that? i did not, and judging by all the ladies in my twitter feed neither did they.
