HOLIDAY HAIRSTYLE: FUN AND FESTIVE BOWS

Bows are not just for presents anymore! No matter your hair type, curly or straight, thick or thin, a bow could be the perfect addition to that fantastic holiday outfit! Keep reading to see my four favorite holiday bow hairstyles.

Soft curls (aka Victoria Secret Angel locks) are a gorgeous look for any holiday party. For this style, I used my curling wand and brushed out the curls to create these cascading waves. Once I had the curls set, I teased the hair around my face and then pulled it all back with the bow.

A sleek side do is always a great go-to holiday hairstyle. All you have to do is add a few soft curls to your hair, pull it to the side, and clip the bow right above your hairband. Super simple!

Want a more formal look? Try a high bun with a bow! Start by teasing the top of your hair to create more volume. Then, tilt your head upside down and make a messy bun. If you notice a few loose strands, tame them with hairspray and then top it off by clipping a medium sized bow just below the bun.

For a super simple and quick hairstyle, I love pulling back one side of my hair in a bow. For this, a smaller bow works best so it doesn’t over do the look.

MY SUMMER CHECKLIST

Oh my gosh – it’s Friday! As I’m sitting here writing this, I honestly can’t believe it’s June already. I don’t want to waste a single second of these summer months! I’ve come up with a summer checklist that I’m going to follow (yes, I mean it!) to make this summer a memorable and healthy one.

Drink lots of water.

I am very aware of how important drinking 8 glasses of water a day is, so why would I not do it? Although some days are easier than others, drinking lots of water every day is something I NEED to be doing, especially during these hot summer months. Plus, I want great skin!

Try a tinted moisturizer.

Summer is the perfect time to ditch the heavy foundations and try something a little more lightweight. Tinted moisturizers are fabulous for letting skin breathe throughout the day – no one wants melty makeup when it’s 80 degrees out. Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer has just the right amount of coverage, yet my natural skin can still shine through.

I have SERIOUS hair envy at Lucy Hale with her super chic lob.

Change up my locks.

I’m not 100% sure I’m going to cross this one off my bucket list this summer, but I just may try! Nothing freshens a girl up like a new ‘do, especially one that’s dramatically different than her normal, everyday hair. Maybe I’ll chop a few inches off (or 10) and get a super cute lob cut?

Wear SPF everyday.

I know I sound like a broken record, but protecting skin from sun damage should be on everyone’s to-do list this summer. I need to promise myself that I WILL wear my Enza Essentials Advanced Protection SPF 30 Moisturizer every single day, even the cloudy ones. I want to keep fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots away as long as possible, so this is a must for me.

Have a fabulous weekend! -xo Kayla

How perfect is this color for spring?! Stephanie of The Diary of a Debutante is giving me SERIOUS nail envy with this OPI polish Is Mai Tai Crooked? It’s a fabulous color for a tropical vacay.

Warmer weather is finally here! I was beyond excited to break out my denim jacket and pair it with a floral tank for my outfit today. Nothing says springtime like a super cute lightweight jacket!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m KIND OF in love with Kim K’s new ‘do. Although I obsessed over her dark locks, this platinum blonde color looks super fierce on her. Keep doing your thing, Kim!

How cute is this inside-out French braid that our aesthetician Melissa wore today?? I love the messy, not-quite-put-together look that it shows. This braid would be perfect for a day at the office or date night on the beach.

Speaking of beaches, did I mention that I’m headed to Florida next week?? I can’t wait for this much-needed vacation with the fam. I’ll have PLENTY of SPF packed in my suitcase for the trip – Enza’s Advanced Protection SPF 30 does an amazing job at protecting my skin from UV rays while giving me tons of hydration.
