MY OUTFIT | Gems & Side Chignons



I was so excited about my DIY earrings, I wanted to show them off with an updo! I usually wear my hair down or in a top-knot, so I was super excited when I found out that Dove® Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend would teach me a super easy updo that is perfect for pulling your hair back during the day, and transitions into a style perfect for the evening. I love that it was a look that lasted all day by finishing it with the Dove® Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray, and gave my new sparklers a chance to shine. Mark was kind enough to talk me through the steps so I could recreate myself, stay tuned for the video tutorial!

My Outfit: Free People jacket,  DIY Express sweatshirt, Express boots, Rabeanco backpack
