Celebrating International Women’s Day with Beauty’s Fearless Female Leaders

Today, on International Women’s Day, we celebrate the strength of female entrepreneurs everywhere—women who lead with unwavering passion and a uniquely female approach to ambition. But specifically, we want to celebrate these nine businesswomen for the ways in which they make us feel amazing, from their organic facial oils and innovative hair devices to the advice and inspiration they impart, giving us the confidence and courage to chase our own dreams.

Because the only thing more beautiful than a woman in control of her own destiny is one who supports other women on their journeys to success, we want to introduce you to a collection of dynamic women from our Nordstrom beauty family who know what being a Girl Boss means to them and to the next generation of female leaders.

Byrdie Editors’ Hair How-To: A Texture Takeover

At Byrdie, we’re obsessed with all things beauty, inside and out. We’re self-described product junkies, and we’re always testing out the latest stuff to see what actually works. Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials, and more.

While sleek hairstyles are super-chic and have their moments, we can’t get enough of textured hair these days. Maybe it has something to do with not wanting to fully let go of summer, but in general, textured styles are more laid-back and look best when every strand isn’t perfectly in place. Striving for imperfection? Now that’s a strategy we can get on board with. Also, these gorgeously—and thoughtfully, we should add—messy styles often embrace our natural texture, which is always a good thing.

We’ve chosen three texture styles and mapped out exactly how to achieve them. We like to call them style all-stars because they’re worthy of adding to your arsenal of signature looks. Plus, they’re easy and fun, and only require three products to nail. From the perfect pony to beachy waves, you’ll have these textured styles mastered in no time. ’Do you.

Q&A with Bumble and bumble HQ: How to Lock in Dreamy Summer Hair, Anywhere

Every year, we embrace summer’s warmer weather with visions of sexy beach hair—only to realize halfway through the ever-intensifying heat waves that we’ve spent a lot more time commuting to the office than lounging on the beach. Exhibit A: our flat (or frizzy) hair.

So how do we rock a sexy ‘do in the middle of summer if we’re not living the Baywatch dream? With scorching temps and humid hot zones from the Eastern Seaboard to the Hawaiian islands, we thought we’d better consult with a legit hair pro before we stressed another frizzed-out tress.  Enter Bronwen Robinson, executive director of Global Brand Artistry at Bumble and bumble in New York, to answer all our summer hair queries.
