Thursday, February 27, 2014 Right Now: Ingredients For A Festival
Ah, music festivals. We live for the adrenaline-filled three day weekend of non-stop music, dancing, and BFF hangs, but—we have to be real—it’s not all pretty flower crowns and perfect beachy waves. There’s a large (see: 100%) chance that you’ll be the sweatiest, dirtiest, and thirstiest you’ve been in your entire life, but, hey, in the end it’s all worth it. So, in the spirit of festival season, we compiled a (semi-realistic) list of ingredients for the perfect festival—complete with blisters and all.

Monday, February 24, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Southern Rap
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“Move over Yeezus. From Cashville to ATL to the 305, the dirty South is full of some serious rap gods. You can dance to Southern hip-hop with your gals, turn it up in your ride, or, what the hell, even listen to it while you’re brushing your teeth, so feel free to rock some overalls and a crop top with this finger lickin’-good playlist. Now hurry up with my damn biscuits.”

Friday, February 21, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: The Best Festival Hair With Lou Teasdale
Not everyone can call themselves a “rock ‘n’ roll groomer,” but London-based beauty expert Lou Teasdale totally fits the bill. She kicked off her career as a hair assistant on The X Factor back in 2007, and today she styles the now-infamous boy band coifs of One Direction. An avid festival-goer herself, we thought she’d be the perfect person to gives us some insight on how to style our strands without a lot of product, tools, and, um, shower time. (Not to mention she’s releasing a “creative bible” on DIY hair and beauty called The Craft come April!) Here, Lou shows us how to conquer a 3-day sweatfest in style and—remember, ladies—“baby wipes and dry shampoo are your friends.”
