    Tue, 16 September 2014 2:11PM

    Right about now, you might be starting to plan out your summer festival style … perhaps it reads like this: bikini, biker boots, long lace dress, a wreath of romantic blooms … (how very Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella of you). But while festivals and flowers in the hair will always be a perfect pairing, we’ve found… more

    Wed, 10 September 2014 4:45PM

    New York Fashion Week is still strutting its fancy stuff down the runways, so it’s way too early to predict any major trends for the season.

    Tue, 9 September 2014 5:40PM

    Those New York girls are an enviably gorgeous and groomed group. But downtown darling Harley Viera-Newton is a little more, well, everything, than most. The former model-turned-DJ, not to mention social media star, also has a new gig: as TRESemmé It Girl for New York Fashion Week. Not surprising, given that heavenly hair of hers. We were… more

  • How To: Create A Plait with ‘Tude

    Tue, 17 September 2013 3:30PM

    A little bit rogue, a little bit rough. The Good Girl’s hairstyle has gone a little bit bad this year. And it’s great. The plait – formerly reserved for storybook princesses and their readership demographic – has taken on a sexy, slept-in vibe, notes super stylist David Babaii. “The messy, loose braid, fish tail or plait is… more

  • How to: Switch up your Beauty Look for Summer

    Wed, 28 November 2012 3:17PM

    I’m a big fan of Last Minute Decisions. Hell, I’ve even been known to regularly give the Last Second Deciders a go, too. I’m not scared. But, dear Primpettes, I am not prepared to take you with me down the slippery slope of my sedentary approach to decision making. To ensure you don’t leave the important stuff… more

  • How to: Style a Messy Milkmaid Braid

    Fri, 19 October 2012 2:06PM

    The milkmaid braid – or plaited headband – has been on red carpets for a while now. This is how it usually, and traditionally, looks (thanks, Ms Cat Deeley, for the lovely demonstration): As pretty as the style is, it’s also a bit seen-it-before. So we couldn’t help but love the twist on the look we spotted… more

  • Paris S/S ’13: The Balmain Braid. Or, the High/Low Approach to Fashion/Beauty

    Fri, 28 September 2012 12:56PM

    You might not have heard of the fashion brand, Balmain. But you would have surely seen the French house’s designs. They’ve been all over the red carpet these past few years. And it’s not surprising celebs love them, as their glitzy razzle-dazzle-ness catches the paparazzi light so well. Cases in point …  Beyonce    Zoe Saldana   Kim Kardashian You’d expect… more

  • Couture A/W ’12: The Double French Braid at Elie Saab (and How to Do it)

    Thu, 5 July 2012 12:15PM

    I really didn’t think that Elie Saab could top the sleek waves from his Spring/Summer ‘11 show, but considering my love of a good braid, this ultra-sleek yet feminine double-French version has pipped them at the post. It strikes the perfect balance for not looking too Princess-like or milkmaid, but I think that’s what I love… more

  • Like It Or Leave It: Kristen Stewart’s Braided ‘Do At Snow White & The Huntsman Premiere

    Thu, 21 June 2012 4:38PM

    Admittedly, I’ve never been a die-hard Twilight fan, but character and film choices aside, I salute Kristen Stewart for staying true to her individual style. I love that she isn’t afraid to wear converse sneakers with a frock (gasp!) and hasn’t been sucked into the Fake Tan and False Lashes Vortex that seems to have… more
