GeneralModel Moment- Frida Aasen

Time for another model moment! Last month we jetted down to Palm Springs to shoot the Lulus summer campaign. With bright maxis, cool, pool-side bikinis, and all the right accessories, it was a sun-drenched day of awesome. The icing on the cake was our fave-babe, model Frida Aasen who flew in from New York to shoot this magical campaign with us. Combine the magic of the desert with this dreamy babe and you have an AH-mazing day ahead of you. We pulled up a chair for a behind-the-scenes chat with this iconic model to bring you a quick Q&A! Read on for more!

What is the most outrageous thing that has happened to you on a shoot?

I have actually been lucky and haven’t had the craziest things happen. I had to shoot swimwear in November, so that was pretty bad. I have shot with animals before. Like dogs, parrots, a small white snake. Nothing too crazy!

What is your favorite place to visit?

Two places I went to recently-Sicily and Corsica. They were the most beautiful places. They had these rocky coasts and they were so beautiful. I can’t wait to go back there.

What is the one summer staple that you will be wearing?

Yellow! I’m obsessed with yellow. I totally have a thing for yellow. I want yellow dresses, yellow purses. I just think it compliments tan skin so well. Like this maxi we just shot today! Love it.

No matter what length hair you are working with, we have a style for you!  Read on for some ideas on how to style your party-perfect prom hair!

Short Hair
The lob is still one of our fave short hair styles! With it’s fun and carefree appeal, the perfect wavy lob gives you that “I didn’t try to hard” cool-girl look. To jazz it up a little for prom, try adding some easy waves with your curling wand or straightening iron. Then section off a portion of your hair, twisting and pinning to secure. Check out the full tutorial here.

Nothing is more classic or chic than a twisted chignon!

Longer Hair
When you have tresses for days, it can be hard to find a style to contain all those lovely strands. For longer hair, we love a perfectly tousled bun!  This style is super simple and elegant to achieve, starting with just  two pigtails twisted into a fabulous knotted bun! All of the steps are ready for you to try out here! To secure your look, try using these rose gold pins for a extra touch of glam!

DIYDIY Boho Wall Hanging

Hey from Lulus! Spring has us itchin’ for something new and fun for the abode and what’s more fun than a DIY boho wall hanging? We love the texture wall hangings can bring to a space so we decided to make our own and we love the outcome. Follow along with the steps below to make your own!

1

Materials:

– 2 Colors of Yarn
– Scissors
– 2 Gold Rings (size to preference)
– Gold Wire
– 5 Copper Couplings 1/4″

1

First, we attached the two gold rings by wrapping gold wire around the top until they felt secure, as seen in the image below. You can fasten the wire by folding a piece across the back and wrapping the wire around itself, or by placing a small piece of tape on the back.

2

Next, cut the yarn into roughly 45″ pieces to tie onto the lower, larger ring.

4

Tie the cut yarn into a larks head knot around the base of the ring. Keep tying new strands of yarn until you reach desired thickness along the width of the ring.

3

Repeat these steps on the smaller ring. We opted to use a second color and once we were finished tying the knots, we placed the yarn on the smaller ring behind the larger ring for a boho, layered vibe.

Once you are satisfied with how your knots and layers look, take scissors and loosely trim bottom of yarn to the desired length.

4

The final step is to grab 4-5 strands of yarn and run the copper couplings through them. You can secure the couplings with glue or let them hang on their own. We made ours into a fun V shape.

5

And Voila! You have your very own boho wall hanging you can use to spruce up your home with a laid-back chic vibe!
