the beauty thrifter is in + a giveaway alert!

brushing out This week over on Beauty Bets, I had the privilege of working with Sally Beauty Supply to do a quick how-to featuring Ion products and tools. In it I share a new super-fast way to get “I just had my hair in braids all day waves” as well as some awesomely affordable Ion product picks. If that’s not enticement enough, there’s also a pretty rad BEACH VACATION giveaway going on in conjunction to the post. If I wasn’t disqualified from entering, believe me I’d be ALL OVER IT. My girl Bets has all the details…please do go check it out, enter and WIN.

Huge thanks to my pals Ellie, Angie, Dana and Meggie for literally lending me their hands. Y’all battled sleep deprivation, hangovers and hand-insecurity (or was that me?) to make this happen, and for that, I owe ya big time. Last but not least, major props to my ultra-talented friend Sara Montour for capturing it all so perfectly on camera.

I’ve been obsessing over barrettes lately. I love how they can make a plain old hair-do look mad fancy with minimal effort. Today over on Beauty Bets, I shared a handful of wallet-friendly barrettes I adore. And here are some of my vintage faves.

Kicking it off, going clockwise from the left-hand side, we have a pair of gorgeous gold barrettes ($8 for both) from the 1960s or 1970s available at Shop Lawrence. To the right, check out the sweet petite name barrettes ($4 a piece) from the ’60s. (I think I need the Betty one, btw.) Beneath that, an adorable set of little deer pins ($8). They’d look super fun tucking in strays with a tousled high bun. This orange 1930s Bakelite bow ($62) couldn’t be in better shape, from the looks of it. And last but not least, this super dazzly mod bauble ($14). I’d wear this on date night with a big old teased half-up half-down ‘do, big gold hoops and a LBD.

And that, my dears, is it for today. I’m beat from the week and it’s only Wednesday. I’m excited for tomorrow though. I took a new route home tonight (way faster!) and spotted a thrift store to check out tomorrow. I hope your week is going swimmingly so far!
