DIY Easy No Heat Curls and Waves Tutotial from the Free People Blog here. You can use hair spray or sea salt spray before you put in a bunch of “mini buns” in your hair. This is really easy and it works from personal experience. Free People lists a set of 4 hair elastics for $10 (the thick kind), but you can make about 80 for $12 using this tutorial here.

DIY Anthropologie Multitude Hair Ties Tutorial from love u madly here. Top Photo: $12/5 Anthropologie Multitude Hair Ties here, Bottom Photo: DYI by love u madly. I’ve seen quite a few tutorials using “fold over elastic” for these hair bands, but liked this one by love u madly because she decided to see how many Anthropologie inspired elastic hair bands she could make for the same $12 it cost to buy 5. She made 80 - go to the link and see all the colors, glitter bands etc… (she links an online source to the elastic). The Gunny Sack also has a tutorial here.

truebluemeandyou: these are the hair elastics used in the Free People post for no heat curls and waves.

Still Pretty in Pink
Whenever I feel fretful I watch Pretty in Pink. I feel fretful fairly often, and I’m not sure I could tell you why. It’s just a thing that happens, especially when I have to get ready to go out and be in front of other people. When I have to get dressed. I’m always able to get over it, eventually, but sometimes I need a little help. Andie Walsh helps me, with her elegance (half on purpose, half accidental), her inventive thrift-store style and orange hair. I’ll put on the movie—for what, the 200th, 300th time?—and watch its opening scene, which shows Molly Ringwald as Andie getting dressed piece by piece. My reaction to the shot of her zipping up the back of her silky, ivory-colored skirt is a nearly physical throb of recognition and longing: That could be me. I could wear that skirt, slinky and sweet. If only I could climb inside the movie and inhabit it, I could possess its main character’s sense of self. Keep reading …

DIY Washer and Ribbon Necklace Tutorial from Maiko Nagao here. This is based on Anni Albers’ iconic hardware jewelry I posted about here and Maiko Nagao saw my post and changed her post to credit Anni Albers. (although Maiko Nagao never mentions Anni Albers as influencing her necklace design), I’m not fond of this neon ribbon color but the tutorial is good. Top Photo: DIY by Maiko Nagao. Bottom Left Photo: Lovely color ribbon Anni Albers Necklace Tutorial I posted from The Small Object here. Middle Bottom Photo: Anni Albers and Alex Reed, Neck piece, ca. 1940 Washers and grosgrain ribbon I posted here. Right Bottom Photo: Excellent tutorial I posted from Craftster here.
