Party Planning 101

Our Altitude Design Summit party recap is finally here! 
You loved our party last year, so we had to make an even bigger impression this year.
How do you think we did?

For this year's Alt Summit we party planned with Pinhole Press. They were a fabulous company to pair with, because we love their products and they loved our ideas.

Capturing the event was the lovely Carolee Beckham. She is a talented photographer and such a blast to work with. To see more of the party attendees shot by Carolee, go here.

There was a lot of work to get this party to look as pretty as a picture. We started with the Paris theme. We had french macarons by Mercedes White. They were sublime.

We had lots of French details - Big ones like the 10 foot Eiffel Tower, and little ones like our black and white umbrellas. {the photos below are from the Alt Summit Flickr}

We had a line wrapped down the hallway for our gift bags, which included adorable striped tees by Striped Shirt (Brooke and Summer love how comfy and flattering they are, pictures to come), chocolate from Godiva, a Jack and White EP, new Redken Power Grip 03, a Pinhole Press notebook, and more!

Flowers were done by Summer's talented cousin-in-law, Jamie Bellessa. We had simple greenery in our umbrella centerpieces and beautiful pale pink flowers in our flower cart.

We even talked the waitresses into letting us paint on the cutest little french mustaches!

It was an amazing night and we couldn't of done it without our amazing sponsor Pinhole Press and each member of our creative and hardworking team. Thanks again for an amazing night.

Promise Tangeman Hair Guide

Sorry for the delay everyone! But our hair guide is finally here! For this video we asked Promise Tangeman to share her hair tips with us (and you!). Promise is an artist, designer and blogger, but she gets just as many questions about her hair as she does her talent. Enjoy the vid!

Hair Care - Products we Love

Later today we have a new video for you that's all about hair! 
In the meantime we wanted to share our list of FAVORITE hair care products.
Guaranteed some of these will change your world: 

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 

Brooke's Picks: 

Soft hold no crunch, gold standard, the best

Mixed with a drop of serum for the perfect curl cocktail, I can't live without it!

 Just a dab run through the ends of curls

For shine and swooshiness- great for curly or straight and insanely good smelling hair

Summer's Faves:

I use the Kerastase masque once a month, or more if my hair needs it. When I am working my hair gets beat up by heat-styling tools and this product soothes and softens.

Although it's a little pricey, Frederic Fekkai's Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner is my favorite. It has olive oil which helps dull hair shine.

Curlers!?! Yes, I love my set of curlers! They're fast, you don't have to be a styling pro and they take my wavy hair and smooth it out, but keep a little bounce in my hair. 

Hair Bungees are my favorite rubber bands for pony tales and top knots. I brush my hair towards my crown and wrap that bad boy around the hair. It stays in, and my favorite, it's so easy to get out of your hair at the end of the day.
