Giveaway :: Twistband

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Spring brings out the hair lover in me. There is something about the shift from cool to warm (yet before the real heat hits) that absolutely begs for me to let my hair down, both literally and metaphorically speaking. With bare feet and the wind in my hair, it feels like life is suddenly full of youth and hope and possibility and I find myself thinking about things like evening walks and fresh squeezed lemonade and…hair ties. Full disclosure: I have a six month old baby. I cannot go for longer than five minutes with my hair down. Metaphorically, yes. Literally, no.

Jessica Frandson created Twistband out of necessity: the same necessity of keeping hair away from the mouths (and hands) of babes. The thing is, though, hair ties hurt. And they leave bumps in your hair. And they always get lost in the bottom of bags. Twistband hair ties are genius little inventions that solve all of the above problems. They don’t catch and tug, they are gentle enough to take out and still look like you intended to have your hair down all day, and they are pretty enough to wear on your wrist. (That’s a triple win, by the way.) For those of you out there without long tresses, don’t fret. Twistband also offers headbands that can be customized (I loved headbands when I had pixie hair, just sayin.) And let’s not forget my absolute FAVORITE: stretchy shoelaces! Those yellow ones are seriously calling my name. Head to toe, Twistband is there when you want let your hair down and still keep it up.

Twistband is giving away three (3!) Twistband Club subscriptions (that’s one whole year of Twistbands delivered to your door!) to three lucky readers. To enter to win, please answer the following question by Tuesday, March 13th. Comments now closed…good luck!
What is the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given?

    The best beauty advice I’ve been given is to let my (curly) hair dry naturally… it’s a time saver, helps me to feel like I’m really being myself, and saves power… triple threat!

    To have fun!! Sometimes getting ready in the morning seems anything but fun… I stare at my closet full of “nothing” to wear, put my make-up on the same old way and pull my hair back into that trusty ponytail. BUT I have found the days I have heeded the advice to “have fun” with my beauty routine, my whole day gets a shot of spunk. Adding accessories, putting a braid in my hair, trying that new mascara, or wearing that shirt I have been saving (for who knows what) always makes me happy. Speaking of F-U-N…metallic hair ties!! Thanks!

    love these ties (got one in a birch box and use it all the time) … best beauty advice has to come from style icon Coco Chanel: “Fashion passes, style remains.”

    As a brunette make sure your eyebrows are well shaped all the time. That way if you choose to go natural and not wear makeup you will still look more put together. I went a month without shaping my eyebrows once and holy cow- I felt like Bert from Sesame Street.

    (wasn’t really that bad but still.)

    Emma says:

    Tailor your clothes.

    Seriously, it is a piece advice I wish I could share with the whole world! When tailored perfectly to your shape, even a pair of cheap chinos and a plain cotton blouse will look crisp and magical, asking for a minimum effort in accessorizing and styling. Instead, you can spend those precious extra minutes in the morning catching up on your beauty sleep. There is no reason not to look our best with the help of our sewing machine friends!

    The best beauty advise I’ve ever gotten was from my mom. Don’t hide behind your makeup–get used to not wearing it all the time, and let your real skin show. A bit of moisturizer with sunscreen protection, plenty of water, and a confident smile is all you need. Thanks mom!
