4 Tips for Masking Greasy Hair

Greasy hair is a struggle for us all.  They say you’re not supposed to wash your hair every day, but when you don’t, your hair becomes a greasy mess!  Especially if you have thick hair like me, you know the struggle.  If you have this problem too, here are 5 tips that will help you out!

  • Dry Shampoo. If you’ve never used dry shampoo, then get ready to be amazed! It does wonders for your hair.  Spray a little bit of this on your hair at any time of the day and it’ll give it the lift it needs.
  • Baby Powder. If you don’t have any dry shampoo lying around, baby powder almost works just as well!  I found this trick hard to believe, but it really does work!  Sprinkle a small amount of powder around your scalp to disappear any grease your hair has.  It’s a cheap and quick method to substitute for dry shampoo!
  • Hats and Headbands. As you can already guess, hats and headbands are the perfect cover-up for greasy hair.  They’re the key solution to any messy hair day, trust me!
  • Braid it. Braiding the top of your hair makes for a cute hairstyle while still doing a good job of covering up dirty hair!  You can still look good on your way to class without worrying about it!

Have any other tips you can give me?  Share your tricks with me in the comments below!

I am going to make a prediction. I predict that I will be wearing a lot of hats this summer! Hats are a great style piece, plus they keep the sun off of your face and prevent wrinkles! It is a real win-win. Here are a few of my favorite summer hat styles.

  1. Floppy hats: I am in love with the hats that have words sewn into the brim, like the one below! Floppy hats are such a chic way to keep the sun out of your eyes. Plus, they can be worn anywhere from the boardwalk to the beach and beyond.
  2. Baseball caps: Baseball hats allow you to disguise bad hair days AND look sporty and cute. I have a few St. Louis Cardinal hats (my home team!) that I love to wear to both support my team, plus they are super cute. Baseball hats are also an easy way to express your personal style because they come in so many colors, patterns, and logos!
  3. Wicker hats: There are so many styles of wicker hats! I love the ones with bows in the back, like the one below. They are a way to show off your feminine side. Plus, they are a classic fashion statement that will never go out of style.

What are your favorite hats to wear in the summer?

XOXO, Chels

Usually when I think of cold weather fashion I think of shades like white, grey, brown and black and muted, darker tones. After the fall colors fade away and the winter the skies are gray, and if you don’t like the cold, your mood is gray as well! One way to drown out the late fall/winter blues is to add color to youimagesr wardrobe. Here are a few ways to add colors back into your ensembles.

  1. Coats: Who says coats have to be neutral colors all of the time? Not me! I love to wear a statement coat, such as my red pea coat, to work some color back into my outfits!
  2. Scarves: Scarves are a great way to spice up your outfit. Wear a statement scarf with a solid shirt to add some dimension.
  3. Hats: I love wearing hats in the fall and winter, and if you follow me on Instagram you totally know what I am talking about! They are a great way to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
  4. Handbags: By adding in a colored handbag to your outfit you can effortlessly slide in some color.
  5. Sweaters: Colored sweaters… a total yes! I have a coral colored sweater that I just love, and I wear it with dark jeans and riding boots for an easy, comfy chilly weather outfit!

How are YOU adding color into your cold-weather wardrobe?

XOXO, Chels

Sometimes you try something new with your hair and end up loving it.  Other times, taking a risk with your hair can be something you regret!  Depending on the person, they can love or hate their bangs.  Or maybe they simply get tired of them!  I know they can take a while to grow out, so here are a few hairstyles for hiding your bangs!

When it comes to bangs, braids can be your best friend.  There are so many different styles of braids that will help hide your bangs and are also super stylish! Chelsea Crockett - Braid Top Knot If you want to keep it simple, French braiding your bangs and bobby pinning them on the side of your head is an easy solution.  One of my favorite looks is the braided topknot like the picture on the left.  As long as you can master the look, it turns out super cute!

If you haven’t invested in any accessories, then you should start!  Hats and headbands are perfect for hiding bangs (and for fixing a bad hair day!).  Purchase a few that you can switch up with different outfits and you’re good to go!

Another quick way to style your bangs is by drying your hair a certain way.  Training your part to go the opposite way can be hard, but by doing this you can master the flipped hairstyle.  This will allow your bangs to blend with your hair better along with using some product to seal the deal.

If you’re regretting getting bangs, then I hope this helps!

Winter is quickly approaching and sometimes, it can be hard to dress cute with layers upon layers of clothing.  I live in the middle of the Midwest, so we get hit hard with snow storms every year.  Throughout the years, I’ve come across some amazing, warm pieces that everyone needs in their wardrobe.  Who says you can’t dress warm and look cute at the same time?!  Chelsea Crockett- cable knit beanie

  • Sorel boots are amazing! They come in all different styles and can keep your feet warm in negative degrees!   Pair them with tall wool socks and a long sweater.
  • Puffy coats are the definition of warmth. Many designers such as Michael Kors and BCBG have made the puffy coat chic by adding thick gold zippers, buttons, and different lengths.  I LOVE knee length puffy coats!
  • Beanies are fab! They can take any outfit to the next level of street style or grunge.  Try a thick cable knit beanie!
  • Vests are everything! It’s the perfect item to throw on during a chilly day.  If you’re looking for a classy look, add a flannel and some riding boots to the mix. 
  • Ponchos are back in! They are absolutely amazing with a long sleeve under and some leather leggings. 

Have a fabulous winter, Insiders!

Have you ever wondered where certain trends you see start or come from? Sometimes a celebrity starts wearing a style that trickles to everyone who witnesses it. Other times, a trend from across the pond makes its way to the U.S. Here are a few looks inspired by countries around the globe!

Kimono cardigans, which started from the original kimonos in Japan, have suddenly become a huge fashion statement in America. High waisted shorts, a simple tank top, and a kimono cardigan with wedges is a fashionable outfit that you can find in a handful of the latest magazines.Chelsea Crockett - Hunter Rain Boots

Rain boots, which have been around way before the 2000’s, are still big here today in the U.S. Rain boots actually started out in England and were first styled as boots for war. Nowadays, brands such as Hunter rain boots have taken the style of the boots and made them perfect for rainy days. They’re super cute and available in almost any color!  Look at the ones on the left for example… So cute!  Check them out here: http://tiny.cc/Rainboots.

Fedora hats are popular for both girls and guys. They’re super fun for a day at the beach or hanging with your friends at the pool. They first started out in France when a woman came on stage wearing a fedora hat while performing a famous French play. Now, it’s a big fashion trend among almost anyone in America! If you want to purchase one, click here!

Do you know of any other trends that may’ve started in another continent? Let me know in the comment section below!

Hats are essential for summer!  They can make any outfit complete and are perfect for bad hair days.  Fedoras, sun hats, and floppy hats are a few of my favorites for a summer look.  It’s important to know which kind of hat goes with what outfit.  Time to create the perfect summer ensemble!

Floppy hats and sun hats are timeless.  Not only do they look classy, but they are a great way to cool off and shield your face from the sun.  They look the best with dresses, skirts, or dress shorts and a nice top.  Since floppy hats usually cover most of your face, keep your makeup to a minimum.  When wearing a floppy hat, it’s more about the clothes and hat than the makeup.  Go for a hat that is a neutral color like black or tan.  This way it’ll go with anything.  If you want to dress up your hat, tie a scarf around the hat and into a bow to match any look you want.  It’s a great way to price up a plain hat!

Fedoras are much more casual.  They can be worn with almost any outfit, preferably nautical looks.  Steer clear of ripped shorts or grungy looks, since fedoras are classic.  My favorite way to wearChelsea Crockett- fedora a fedora is with a pair of high-waisted striped shorts and a nice tank or shirt tucked in.  Add a pair of strappy sandals and you’ve got yourself the perfect summer outfit!

Next time you’re at the store, try grabbing a hat!  You never know what looks you could create with it!

XOXO,

Chelsea

            Hey insiders!

            As seasons change, so does our wardrobe.  This time of year, the weather gets cooler which causes us to pull out our scarves and sweaters.  Recently, I’ve seen many popular and stylish accessory trends spread throughout magazines, fashion websites, and even at schools worn by kids and teens.

           Chelsea Crockett - Fall Accessories Hats are accessories that can be rocked in any season, but there are a couple ones that are necessities to have during this time of year.  Beanies are casual, cute, and can be worn to all your fall events such as bonfires, football games, etc.  Whether they’re fitting to your head or hang off the back, you can style your beanie however you prefer!

            Since most schools don’t allow hats, teens have to find other fun ways to accessorize and show their individuality.  Scarves are the perfect way to do so.  With all their fun colors, patterns, and styles you can add some color to your outfit.  In case you don’t know, infinity scarves are definitely a popular trend.  Because they don’t have an end, you simply wrap them around your neck two to three times and you’re set!

            Lastly, it’s time to pull out your autumn handbags!  Colors such as browns, yellows, tans, and oranges look great on purses during this time of year.  Of course, you can change up your look with crossbody bags, hobo bags, or shoulder bags.    

            So as you see the colors of the leaves start to change, it’s time to show off these trends!

            What’s up insiders?

            Beanie hats are not only good for keeping you warm, but also for making a look go from ordinary to trendy.  You may assume you just throw on one of these and you’re set, but first you should probably read up on your “Beanie 101”WinkChelsea Crockett - Beanies

            If you’re looking for a more edgy outfit, a black or grey beanie is the perfect accessory.  Although plain, solid-colored beanies will work, try finding one with a cool logo or emblem on the front.  This will look better when you pair your hat with skinny jeans and a leather jacket.  Also, throw on some combat boots and a concert tee.  This will give you the street look that’s a definite “in” in Hollywood right now.

            As for more of a sweet, girly look, find a light, pastel colored beanie.  These are a super cute accessory to pair with an oversized sweater and leggings.  Get out your boots and a cross-over purse to finish up a casual, yet stylish outfit. 

            Most of the time, I see most trend-setters rocking an over-sized beanie and slouching it towards the back of their head.  If you’d rather find a more fitting one to wear normally on the top of your head, that’s perfectly fine!  Don’t be afraid to make the style your own!  That’s what fashion’s all about, isn’t it?
