we.do | the brigitte


i have a little motto i like to live by. the words go big or go home can be interpreted in a multitude of ways, but for me, generally it’s referencing my hair.

i also have a little sign hanging in my bathroom that says “the higher the hair the closer to god.”

don’t judge me.

yes, i used to go overboard with this (maybe i will post a pic of my too-big hair days…i’ll think on it. i went all conehead with it one time. or 12.)

big tousled VS angel style hair will ALWAYS be sexy as far as i’m concerned. i’ve always thought brigitte bardot really created the perfect balance between, big, styled and messy/effortless. how she did that i don’t know, but how she did this i do.

check out our video below for step by step instructions on how to get the look.

and check back next week for another bardot-inspired style!!

we.do ESSENTIAL TOOLS | making waves: curling with a flat iron

photos, video and post by alex michael may. style created by cynthia marie. music: home again blues by aileen stanley.

soft, flowing waves are the ultimate in femininity and a perfect summer style for any occasion. they seem so effortless and romantic and personally, face-framing wings make me feel beautiful and just together.
it can be difficult to achieve the waves with a curling iron, and it’s a fine line between curly and shirley temple beachy, so cynthia and i thought creating flat-iron waves would be a perfect way to kick off our essential tools guide, where we will share the building blocks to good styling technique. once you master a few simple tricks, you can pull off nearly any style!
back to today’s tutorial, it’s also awesome  (and economical!) to get multiple looks with one tool, so without further ado i give you making waves! oh, and see that little video down there? please watch! it’s my first project after having taken blogshop video on monday. needless to say i was prrrettty excited to share it with you 🙂
