You guys….when my hair girl Rachel from Coleman Alexander Salon came over a few weeks ago to do some hair stuff, I had NO idea she was starting with this. We shot this in my living room, so after a good 20 minutes of her curling my hair (thinking she’s doing beach waves) I grab my phone to see what’s happening and I almost shit myself. I looked like curly sue! She assured me that this was normal and would look gorgeous in a few simple steps. I wished her luck and put the phone back down…What came out of those tight curls was a glamorous 50s inspired look that I may start recreating for fancy occasions (because I go to so many of those…. right). This look is ideal on short hair and takes a little patience with all the curling. Here’s how to get the look…

  1. Curl your bangs/front section of your face with a large barrel iron (1 1/2 inch will do) and curl it forward making one big curl. Secure it with a clip and let it hang out while you curl the rest of your hair.
  2. Curl the remainder of your head with a 1 inch curling iron AWAY from your face. 
  3. Once your head is fully curled brush it out gently. 
  4. You’ll start to notice a wave forming from all the curls going in the same direction. From here you’ll add clips and maneuver the pieces to enhance the wave.
  5. Let your hair sit and set a bit to cool off. 
  6. Spray with hairspray and throw on red lipstick.

I have a long list of favorite brunch spots in Atlanta. From super southern to a little lighter fare, to the best grits, to the best mimosas, I’ve got the list. I headed to Buttermilk for brunch this weekend with my sister. They have some of the best dishes for brunch like their bruleed grapefruit, fried chicken biscuit. And what I love most about this spot is it’s all locally sourced (as much as possible). Their local sausage has to be my favorite breakfast sausage in the city.

I either head to brunch in one of two looks, workout pants or something like this that’s casual yet still put together. I headed to brunch in honor of HauteLook’s latest flash sale with Orla Kiely and Badgley Mishka for their Ladies Who Brunch series. The sale lasts until Tuesday morning so hurry up before it sells out! And check out the other seven bloggers who headed to their favorite spots this weekend.
