Braid Bar Recap

We had our first craft night of our new series sponsored by Bing. The idea behind craft nights is to get everyone together to hang out offline and to learn something new. Craft Nights are free, you just have to register for a spot. (The next two are being announced below.) My friend Rebecca Wright has been helping me plan them and she has done such a great job. For the first one Rubi Jones came and taught us how to do a Braided Chignon. Rubi helped us handpick her favorite hair+beauty products for this gift bag.

Rebecca screenprinted these totes “Happy” totes that Lisa Congdon hand lettered for us.

Rubi swears by these Spornette round brushes (see reasons here.) They are Italian crafted brushes made from wood and boar bristle. Spornette was so sweet to send over samples for all the attendees.

Samantha Hahn made these lovely illustrations with Rubi and then we letterpressed them. Rubi says these Muji bobby pins are super hard to find because hairstylists go in and buy them completely out. They are super sturdy and keep your hair in place all day. Malin + Goetz sent us some samples of: Grapefruit Face Cleanser, Vitamin E Face Moisturizer, Detox Face Mask, Moisturizing Shampoo, and Sage Styling Cream. And Paul designed these calendars with Bing which we letterpressed and then dip-dyed the paper in a light blue dye.

Fat & The Moon is a cool natural beauty company that makes the most beautiful products in small batches. They are amazing!

All the attendees got one of these awesome hugs and smooches pins from Bando. They make the best hair accessories ever so I was stoked they sent over some goodies for the attendees.

Thank you to everyone who came and to everyone who helped put it on and to all of our sponsors. It was so great to meet everyone in person! I’m really excited to announce the next two Craft Nights. I will put an announcement up and open registration with the details a week before the event. Remember, craft nights are free but it is $20 to hold your spot (that is 100% refunded the night of the event.)
