Last week I had the pleasure of attending a Winter Wonderland Fashion & Beauty Inspiration demonstration that was hosted by Tricoci University. For me, it’s easy to get into a jeans/boots/sweater rut during winter, so it was amazing to see gorgeous winter wears created by local Indianapolis designers. My friend Molly also attended and we learned how to mix up eye shadow, how to achieve the perfect top knot, and we watched a fashion show. So fun!

Here are some highlights from the night:

Molly got a perfectly tousled top knot! Here’s how the stylist did it:
1. Gather your hair in a messy high pony.
2. Tease that hair!
3. Coil your teased hair around itself into a “knot” and secure with an elastic.
4. Pin it into place with bobbies.
