I’ve always been a fairly clumsy, messy person. I’m incapable of wearing a white blouse without soiling it with mustard stains, even if I don’t eat any foods with mustard on them (“Phantom Mustard Magnet” isn’t just a great band name, it’s my reality). I tend to trip at really inopportune times, and not in a charming Jennifer Lawrence way. My soup-in-mouth vs. soup-on-face ratio is about 1:5. I should probably buy stock in Tide To-Go Pens. I can assemble full meals with all the crumbs I find in my cleavage at the end of the day. You get the idea. So anyway, last night I was having dinner at a Mexican restaurant. While telling a story, I began gesturing wildly with a chip in my hand, and — wouldn’t you know it? — I ended up with a large glop of guacamole in my hair. So gross. Or was it? I mean, I had been meaning to do an avocado scalp treatment this weekend. Wasn’t this basically the same thing? After all, like the old adage says (I’m paraphrasing here): “When life hands you guacamole in your hair, just rub it in and make an avocado scalp treatment.” Inspired by my margarita-fueled beauty epiphany, here are 10 beauty treatment ideas for all my fellow klutzes!

The clocks have sprung ahead. Yesterday it was 60 degrees in Manhattan. The heat in our office has been shut off. Dare I say it? I think spring is really, truly on the horizon. Which brings me to something I’ve been meaning to tell you — it’s time to get your hair did. You need a change. Something fresh, different, a new look that screams, “I have been cold and wet and stuck inside for too many months, but look out world, because I am ready to emerge from hibernation and make spring my bitch!” Here are 12 recent celeb hair makeovers to consider for your triumphant return!
Call me crazy, but I am loving this bright lavender shade Nicole Richie debuted on Instagram earlier this week. It’s so lovely with her skintone and perfectly aligned with her wild sense of style. What do you guys think? Too wacky? Too reminiscent of Kelly Osbourne? Or freakin’ fabulous and on point for a funky fashionista like Ms. Richie?
Today a very special day, friends. It’s Connie Britton’s birthday! To say we love Connie would be a massive understatement. We are ridiculously obsessed with Connie. As Tami Taylor, she gave us the mother/best friend/wife/sister we always wanted. As Rayna James, she became our new favorite fictional country singer. As Vivien Harmon on the first season of “American Horror Story,” we prayed for her triumph over that scary haunted house. In real life, she’s a Planned Parenthood-supporting badass. There are countless ways we could pay homage to the Goddess that is Connie, but today we’d like to focus on just one of her many, many amazing features: her hair. So many valuable life lessons can be gleaned from Connie Britton’s famous golden mane, such as… Keep reading »
I’m currently wearing two sweaters and my skin is so dry it feels like it’s going to fall off, which is why I’m staring wistfully at this funky, heart-print headwrap and yearning for the greasy roots and boho fashions of summer. I am so ready to ditch my beanies and thick scarves in favor of funky headwraps and cutoffs. SO ready. [$18, ThreeBirdNest]
