Spiral Twist Fishtail Braid Hair Tutorial

Our hair tutorial today shows how to create a pretty "spiral twist fishtail braid" ponytail hairstyle.   This braid is very simple to create, but will leave people wondering how you did it!  We love that this braid gives sort of a 3D illusion.  It is hard to tell where the braid starts and where it ends... with a fishtail running along the top, as well as twisting along each side of the braid, and crossing over the front.  So fun! Spiral Twist Fishtail Braid Video Tutorial (Click here to wat...

The Art and Craft of Mapling with the folks from MapleMama

MAPLE SYRUP IS ABOUT AS OLD FASHIONED AS ONE CAN GET IN NEW ENGLAND BUT LIKE MANY ARTISIONAL PRODUCTS, INNOVATION IS CHANGING EVERYTHING. HERE IS A STORY ABOUT HOW ONE FAMILY NEAR ME IS USING MAPLE SYRUP TO CREATE A COMPLETELY NEW CRAFTED PRODUCT. It's hard to avoid maple sugaring in much of rural New England, a season that sometimes begins as early as mid-February or as late as the end of March, as it was this year. Sugaring season is when the daytime temperatures rise above freezin...

3 Easy Things We Say to Avoid the Hard Things We Need to Do

You are the person you believe yourself to be. “This afternoon I received a formal acceptance letter from Yale University, including a full basketball scholarship.  Despite everything my alcoholic father put me through over the years—the hungry, sleepless nights I spent in tears due to their relentless negativity—it didn’t ruin me.  With your coaching and guidance, I’ve worked hard to get out of this mess once and for all, and it’s finally paying off.” That’s the opening paragraph of an email...

I Chopped Off 10 Inches Of My Hair To Reclaim My Curls

It was the day before a big job interview, and I checked everything off my to-do list: buy an outfit, print out copies of my resume, and stop by DryBar to get my natural hair "blow-dried straight with extra attention at the roots, please." Blowouts were a biweekly part of my hair routine — anything to keep my naturally curly hair "tamed" and "professional," as my Dominican family would say.But, of course, the day of my interview was one of the most humid days of the summer. My hair began to f...

Civilization's Oldest Shoe Gets A Stylish Update — Again

You may know by now that we really like to shop vintage. If it’s something that we could envision in grainy, sepia-toned photos and worn by fashionistas of yore, we’re here for it. We especially love shoes: the clean lines and quaint design of historical footwear is something we’re always on the hunt for. And when it comes to throwback kicks, it doesn’t get much more OG than the rope sandal — according to the Oregon Historical Society, the oldest dated “fiber footwear” is a pair of 9,000-year o...

Discover the Secrets of Cacao Ceremonies in Berlin

I experienced pure cacao for the first time last winter after ice bathing in the frozen lake of Plötzensee with the group Ice Dippers. Its founder, Jonas, served us hot cacao as we came out of the water. The first sip of pure cacao is really bitter and far away from the warm chocolate you probably experienced as a kid. Though, I enjoyed a full cup of it, not only for its taste, moreover for the mixed feeling of relaxation and stimulation it provided me. I couldn’t stop asking myself where this c...

Nicki Minaj Doesn’t Understand Camp But It’s Not Her Fault

The first Monday in May has come and gone but the internet is still critiquing the outfits our favorite celebrities wore on the Met Gala's pink carpet. While the curators of this year's exhibit arguably ignored black camp and centered whiteness, we were still eager to see what our favorite rappers would wear to honor the theme. Because as Essence magazine editor-in-chief Constance White told Refinery29 earlier this month, rappers love camp. “Rappers are interesting," White said at the time. "I ...

18 Times Celebrities Made The Ponytail Cool For Summer

Blame Gretchen Wieners' circa-2004 mandate, but for a long time, we treated wearing a ponytail like sporting our favorite pair of ratty sweatpants in public: lazy, low-effort, and only to be done once a week max. But, much like the Plastics' other style guidelines of only wearing jeans on Fridays and never rocking a tank top two days in a row, Gretchen's unflattering opinion of the humble ponytail was sorely misguided — and Hollywood's biggest stars are here to prove it.From Gabrielle Union and...

16 Pore Strips That Actually Work

If you had told us 15 years ago that we'd be sticking the equivalent of duct tape to our nostrils, forehead, and chin, then ripping them off and furtively examining the remains, we might have mistaken you for someone who was a little too into The X-Files.Yet, what we once thought of as beauty sci-fi, we now look to as a skin-care necessity: Pore strips are one of those inventions we didn't really know we needed, but now that we've experienced them, we don't think we can live without them.Once e...

This Beauty Brand Is Making All of Its Packaging Using Ocean Plastic Waste

When you examine your beauty products, you'll notice that the majority of them are housed in plastic containers. Unfortunately, many of these containers end up in the ocean after we toss them into the trash. That's why haircare brand Kevin Murphy has decided to help take on the 18 billion pounds of plastic waste that ends up in our oceans each year with its new packaging. The brand announced in September 2018 that it would start rolling out packaging made 100 percent from ocean waste plastic, s...

Huda Beauty Combined Everything We Love About Bronzers and Contour Kits Into 1 Compact

Using the smaller end of the new Huda Beauty Sculpt and Shade Brush ($28) (which also newly launched), I swept up a small amount of cream and streaked it into the hollows of my cheeks, al...
