Simple Side Twist, Half Braided Updo, & Textured and Twisted Fishtail Braid (for

A soft & smokey eye

I’ve been a Birchbox subscriber for over 3 years and have had the absolute pleasure to work on some fun collaborations in the past, but nothing has been as much fun as this one.

I’m currently sitting in a beautiful hotel room in New York City, taking a little break before the big event tonight at the Birchbox store in SoHo! This morning I filmed a little 2 part hair tutorial that will be coming soon to Birchbox’s YouTube channel + my YouTube channel (you can see some sneak peek photos here!) and enjoyed a delicious breakfast at SaraBeth’s.

I created 3 hairstyles to be featured at the event tonight, and you can find the videos and photo step by step (for one of them) over here!


Tonight, myself and some other stylists, will be doing live demo’s of the styles on anyone that wants it at the Birchbox store! There is still time to RSVP if you are in the area! I hope to meet you tonight!

Meanwhile, if you aren’t local to NYC, watch the videos and make sure to tweet me/share on instagram using #smallthingshair so I can see your hairstyles!

Love this first updo, but the twisted fishtail…there are no words. Im 29 and I think part of me feels like I’d be trying too hard to be younger…To each their own though, and I am in love with all the styles you do on your own hair! Hope there are more to come!! Congrats on the Birchbox Event! Sounds so cool!

I’m with you, Kristen. Not my cup of tea. But way to go, Kate! You rock.

How exciting! I am so happy for you. I have never commented on your blog before, but I have been coming here for a while. Last year I used your videos when styling my hair for the Air Force Ball. I received so many compliments. Everyone thought a pro did my hair. So a big, big thank you to you! Now my hair looks fancy pants all the time. -h

Gorge!!! Congrats!

Chelsea says · 10.08.14

I love the first one! I never put my hair up before my kids and if it wasn’t for your blog I would have spent the last two years in a pony tail! I did birchbox until pregnancy made my skin even more sensitive but my husband loves the men’s box!

Lori-Ann says · 10.08.14

It was a pleasure to meet you at Birchbox yesterday. The hairstyles were even more fabulous in person. Your blog has been an immense help to me, as my hair grows out. If you find the time, check out my new blog (only two posts old). Peace.

Hi Kate πŸ™‚ Just wanted you to know that I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog award today (I promise I’m not spamming you). If you want to participate or just know more about it, this post has the rules πŸ™‚

Ahhh I wish I had known about this! I could have come! Anyway…. It looks great! I wish I could do hairstyles like this!

Helen says · 10.23.14

Each hairstyle will look great on shiny, healthy hair. Taking care of it should be your everyday ritual. I am always looking for the natural products, because initially I am opposed to all kinds of chemicals. I use herbal shampoos, oils, eggs, yogurt and many other products as external remedies. In the same time, I consider my nutrition and fill my eating plan with useful foods. Besides, in autumn and spring I try to take additional vitamins. Recently I have found a nice nutritional supplement, which is most natural of all I have tried before. It’s Hair Gain Formula, manufactured by Military Grade. Together with it, all other actions which I take provide perfect results not only for my hair, but also for my skin and nails.
