Double Braided Ponytail: Birchbox Video of the Week
There are so many amazing videos on YouTube, we have a hard time keeping up with all of them. You name it, there’s a video about it. Wondering how to turn flat, limp strands into sexy supermodel hair? There’s a video for that. Always wanted to see what a moonwalking pony would look like? There’s a video for that. That’s why we’ve decided to choose one video a week to share with you. Keep reading for this week’s pick. 
New York City summers are hot, and with the added humidity, I’m always trying to find innovative ways to put my hair up. I usually only discover time consuming (or complicated) updos, which is why I was pleasantly surprised when I came across this chic braided ponytail tutorial. Kate from The Small Things Blog gives a great, easy-to-follow breakdown of how to get this look at home. Watch to learn how to do it yourself!

Tools of the Trade: Guest Blogger

Along with makeup artists, hairstylists rank pretty high on our list of people we’d like to have around all the time. That’s just one reason we’re so excited to have hairstylist Kate Bryan guest blogging for us today. The other reason? We’re obsessed with her blog, The Small Things, which covers beauty, jewelry, and — you guessed it — the small things in life. Check back for her posts all week!
