While we’ll always have a soft spot in our hearts for tousled beachy waves, lately we’ve been more inspired by the vintage hairstyles we’ve seen all over the red carpets and in our favorite TV shows (hello, Downton Abbey). We enlisted Ojon’s lead stylist, Gwynne Mims, to help us create gorgeous classic waves with pin curls—a look that’s eye-catching all on its own or stunning when pulled back into a flattering updo.
Lucky for us, Gwynne’s sharing her expertise in more ways than just the video above. Join us today for a Twitter chat with Gwynne at 12:30pm ET, and you can ask for advice on which products to use for your hair type, the secret to styling the perfect curls, and any other burning questions you might have about your strands!

We’ve always had a bit of a girl crush on MCMC Fragrances founder Anne McClain. Not only is she a DIY perfume blending master, she’s also a hip Brooklynite with impeccable style. We sat down with Anne last month to hear about her experience starting her own boutique fragrance brand, her recent travel destinations (Cambodia to volunteer at an orphanage for a week), and why she thinks making perfume is similar to cooking (it’s a craft you can learn). To find out more about Anne and her whimsical, unforgettable scents, check out the video below:
But even better—don’t miss Anne today on Twitter! She’ll be joining us this afternoon at 3pm to answer your questions about MCMC Fragrances, picking the right scent for you, how she creates unique blends and more.
