Emily Blunt's Elegant Crown Braid

If there's one person who loves braids and waves as much as our founder and celeb stylist Sarah Potempa, it's Emily Blunt! When Sarah styled her hair for a charity gala for the American Institute for Stuttering in NYC Monday night, Emily opted for a soft, ethereal crown braid (accentuated with face-framing Beachwaves) to match her stunning Christian Dior gown. 

Here, Sarah shares all the deets on how she did it! 

1. Curl with the Beachwaver S1 for texture and volume.

2. Section the hair behind and just below the ear, and use a Darby Clip to section the rest of the hair out of the way. 


3. Separate the hair into three pieces, and begin braiding, repeating the mantra, “Left under the middle, right under the middle.” Continue to Dutch braid, adding hair from the root as you work your way around the head, leaving out a couple of the Beachwaved pieces around the hairline.


4. When you’ve gone all the way around, complete the braid to the ends of the hair, and secure with a clear elastic. Take the tail of the braid and tuck it under the side you started. Secure the ends with two bobby pins.


 

Pretty Little Beachwaves


Australian-born Glenn Nutley, is an internationally acclaimed hair and make up artist, who recently styled the gorgeous Janel Parrish for the 2014 Teen Choice Awards with the BEACHWAVER® PRO! Janel, who plays Mona Vanderwaal on Pretty Little Liars was nominated for best TV Villian. Pretty Little Liars took the award home for best TV show in the drama category.
She looked AMAZING! She was styled by Fashion Stylist Adeel Khan and wore a Contrarian New York two piece ensemble. Her stunning bracelets are by XIV Karats. We especially love her simple white painted nails! The beachwaves really completed her whole red carpet look. (Images from Just Jared)

Molly Sims: Beachwaves & Braids

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of styling Molly Sims hair with the Beachwaver. We had a great time and she fell in love with it! So much so, that she is wrote about it on her blog and called it her "Curling Iron Obsession!" It is so great to help teach how to get beautiful beach waves in only a few minutes. The only other thing Molly and I like just as much as pretty Beachwaves, are braids. I was so excited when she asked me to share some easy braid hairstyles. Check out a two strand braid and fishtail braid crown tutorial on her blog!

 
 

THROWBACK THURSDAY: JAZZY BEAUTY

We are feeling hot and jazzy this week as we throwback to one of our favorite vintage hair looks. Last year Sarah teamed up with Tina Turnbow and Deborah Lippmann, to create a night of retro glam inspired by the 20s – 50s. The night was filled with fun, dancing, and beauty!  See some of the beautiful looks below!


 
 

Get the Look: PAMELLA ROLAND SS14

Ted Gibson‘s modern bouffant was inspired by Brigitte Bardot and the Cannes Film Festival, where much of Pamella Roland‘s own inspiration was rooted for her SS14 Collection. This simply, disheveled, yet elegant ponytail is easy to create in the few steps below.

  1. Spray a texturizing mist throughout hair to give it body and hold

  2. Create your deep side part by blowing front of hair over to one side

  3. Style part with “On Set” Styling Brush to keep it polished

  4. Section the top quarter of your hair away.

  5. Take remaining, loose hair and secure with an elastic band

  6. Release the top section and create 3-4 small sections. Using your SARAHPOTEMPA “Prep it Comb” tease each small section from mid to end. Once each section is teased, gather together and secure it to the already created ponytail with a bungee or another elastic band. Spray with a strong hold hairspray to finish.

TIP: Wrap or add your favorite ribbon/ leather piece around the base of the ponytail. Spray with a strong hold hairspray to finish.
