Braid Night


Wednesday night, we attended a braid extravaganza event at Maxine Salon held by Birchboxand Kérastase. If you're unfamiliar with each, Birchbox is basically like having a mini birthday in the mail every month, without getting older (who says you can't have your cake and eat it too?). For $10 a month, they'll send you beauty samples for various products, so you can try before you commit! Kérastase can be explained in four words... BEST. HAIRCARE. PRODUCTS. EVER. That's all you need to know. Now, go try their serum and thank us later.

While we spent half of the night trying to decide what gorgeous braid to pick and the other half admiring the work that Maxine's staff created, we found time to sip champagne and enjoy some Flirty Cupcakes. Jess chose a headband braid that worked perfect with her long waves, while Jill's stylist created a unique look based on Khaleesi from Game of Thrones (yes, he was that awesome).

Jess wore an H&M dress, DV Dolce Vita heels, and a GUESS by Marciano necklace. Jill wore a French Connection dress with heels by Boutique 9.

What type of braids will you be wearing this summer? We'll be on the hunt for some braid tutorials on YouTube, so share with us if you have any good ones!
