Hair comes the Olympics

Planet Botkier June 29, 2012

We must admit that sometimes we get a little carried away when it comes to clothing, accessories and beauty trends. Isn’t there something just as important missing? Maybe your hair! Can’t forget that because a lady has to be well put together from head to toe. The wet, slick and sporty hair is trending this summer inspired by the Olympics so diving into the summer trends will keep you cool and enthused.

The Ponytail

This slicked back Samurai look is perfect for the summers sun. Take your hair back from your hairline and pull tightly. Make sure to add some moisturizer or moose to give it that touch of perfection and shine.

Want to add some fun to that mundane slick back? Try sectioning the hair into three or four individual ponytails then secure them toward the back of your neck. It’s edgy, fun and simple.

Updos

Updos can be so boring and plain but summer is here so it’s time to add some personality to your hair. Make your updos a bit more vibrant by adding some pearls or touches of crystal scattered in your hair.

Get twisted with the new swirl updo that’s to die for! For once you don’t have to strive for perfection because this look allows you to play around. Grab sections of your hair and twist back into mini halos and pin into place.

Color

Graffiti for the hair, do you dare? Clay painted hair is trending but do you really want to walk around in the heat with that kind of material in your hair? I think not, so the newest solution would be to use spray paint.  Use in sections of the hair or add it as an ombre so it’s not over baring. You will surely make a statement on the streets!

At The Lion with Lake Bell & Oxfam

Planet Botkier April 06, 2011


Monday evening we celebrated our exclusive collaboration with Lake Bell & Oxfam with some of the industry’s top editors and style mavens at New York’s newest hotspots, The Lion.

Nestled in the West Village on 9th St. between 5th and 6th Avenue The Lion’s vibe of vintage “faded glory” (we loved the antiques and all the art, including works by Basquiat, David La Chapelle, and Marilu Nordenflycht) only highlighted the chef’s great take on American comfort food… we literally couldn’t get enough of the fries!

Highlights from our evening included meeting Lake’s mom Robin Bell (love seeing them together):

Lake and her mom  – not only does Lake get her beauty from her, but also her great sense of humor and style!

Lyndsay Cruz from Oxfam with Lake and Monica – passionate women with great style – making a difference.

Lake’s brother and  some stunning friends… love that gold top!

Marie Jacobs from Glamour and David Thielebeule from Harper’s Bazaar – need to get a leather jacket, love theirs!

Justin Livingston from Shine Media PR with Hannah Deely and Hayley Starr from US Weekly

Lake and Monica sharing a moment – good times!
