Pretty Simple :: Low Twist Chignon

With the temperatures rising (triple digits here in Texas), that means most of us just want our hair up and off our necks!  Martha Lynn here, and I love the idea of this braided updo as an alternative to a plain pony tail. While this look can work with casual daytime clothes, it’s sweet and… read more


Pretty Simple :: Coral Lip

This summer I’m finding myself skipping the reds and pinks and going for a bright coral lip. As with any bold lip color, you can go lighter on other areas on your face and let the lips take center stage — that means high impact with a minimal effort (which is an A+ in my… read more

Pretty Simple :: Nailed Down

Nail artist Meghann Rosales of the uber popular Nails Y’all first fell in love with the art form when she was teaching high school history in the South Bronx. “My students had some amazing nails!
