Friday, May 10, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Bathing Beauties
We’re not really the full-layer-of-makeup-on-the-beach type, but we can still admit that getting that perfect beach babe look isn’t as easy—or nearly as effortless—as it seems. Dewy (but not greasy) skin, salty (but not briny) hair and the ever-prescient threat of sunburn—the whole thing’s a bit precarious. And while our newly in-stock collection of bright zinc sunblock can spare you from the latter, we had to call in the big guns, that’s Bumble and bumble’s Jordan M, to tell us a thing or two about perfect beach hair. We grabbed photographer Brandon Harman and fav Kiwi blogger Ponyhunter and hop, skip, jumped over to Santa Monica to show you what’s what. All together, we’ve got you covered, whether you’ve spent the day surfing the waves… or the Internet.

Friday, May 3, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Pile It On with Senior Stylist Ashley!
We think our Senior Stylist Ashley is pretty fly—she can style you up, down and sideways in a flash! Yes, she can do it all, but she’s especially adept in the realm of more-is-more jewelry. Truth be told, we could use some pointers, so of course we asked her to demonstrate her special magic and spill her jewelry dos and don’ts while she’s at it!

Monday, April 8, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Space Age Desert Eyes
If there’s one thing we love here at Nasty Gal, it’s an excuse to cover our face in glitter. A trip to the grocery store? Sure. An oil change? Totally. A day at in the sun at a summer festival? Well, this one’s a no-brainer.
So, to kick off our season in the sonic fields, we’ve concocted one hell of an eye look. We’re not talking glitter eyeliner or some shadow with sheen, but honest to dog glitter glued to your eyelids. Don’t be shy—we certainly never are!
Our out-of-this-world video directors at Knockout Pictures broke it all down into easy-peasy steps, but our in-house makeup master Stacey Nishimoto’s got more than a little advice on how to really master this look. Below, the exclusive unabridged version, straight from the source!

Thursday, April 4, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Knotty By Nature – A Festival Braid Guide
When we were kids, our copy of Braids and Bows ended up in the garbage—a combination of our hatred of ribbons and our boiling frustration over our utter lack of ability. These days, we’re willing to give these pretty little plaits another try. Not only have braids evolved into a cool, intergalactic art form since our embarrassing class photo days, but they also serve a real and breezy function come festival season.
To get us ready for that extreme desert heat—and stand out in a sea of coif crowns—we turned to our nearest braid babe, Alison Brislin, who cooked up this sorta sleek, sorta spacey look special for us.
