New York City summers are hot, and with the added humidity, I’m always trying to find innovative ways to put my hair up.

Nail art is a popular topic in our office, so when I came across this creative (and delicious-looking) sundae manicure I knew I had to share it. YouTube nail guru, cutepolish, breaks her tutorial into a few easy steps, and recommends using a nail dotting tool to create look of the chocolate sauce. If you don’t have one of those at home though, we found that the end of a bobby pin works just as well.
Watch the video below and learn how to make this yummy nail art on your own.

We’re a little bit in love with the SHU UEMURA Volume Maker here at Birchbox HQ. A few clicks at the end of this handy brush releases a translucent powder that’s like a dry shampoo, a texturizing powder, and a hair spray all-in-one. It adds serious volume, styling ability and oomph to limp strands—but admittedly is a potentially head-scratching product to try and use for the first time. Check out this SHU UEMURA video below to find out how you can use this one brush to create three different looks with the Volume Maker.

I’m normally pretty good at painting my own nails but when it comes to nail art, I usually need a little instruction. So when I stumbled upon this Nail Art for Beginners video tutorial I had to share! YouTube beauty guru MissJenFABULOUS, shows you how to get three awesome manicures in just a few easy steps.  
I’m a fan of all three styles, but I’m most excited to try the first design. Even though MissJenFABULOUS uses a rainbow collection of colors on that first look, she also suggests using metallics for a more subdued style by layering silver or gold with a black base coat. I’m thinking it would make for an edgy manicure that’s perfect for a night out. (Guess which manicure I’ll be trying this weekend?)

This week we’re sharing this awesome Cute Girls Hairstyles braided hair tutorial. The finished style looks very elaborate and complicated. Turns out, all you need to do is separate the hair at the crown of the head and french braid in a circular path.  This is by far one of the prettiest french braids I’ve ever seen and is a lot easier to achieve than it looks.  

What do you think? Could this be the new milkmaid braid?
