knotieties beauty q&a + a giveaway!

What better way to kick off the first of the month (& April Fools) with a feature from Knotieties plus a fab little giveaway <-- no joking here!  Jennifer the creator (and seriously stunning lady!) behind these adorable, super soft & damage free hair ties is also taking part in The Beauty Files by sharing some of her favorite beauty tips, tricks & products!


Hey there lovely readers, I'm Jen from {knotieties} super soft luxe hair ties.  I design and create all things {knotieties}.  These special little accessories are my addiction. {knotieties} are super gentle on your locks & won't leave a crease in your hair.  We also have a jewelry line that looks awesome in your hair with a little extra sparkle & they all double as super chic bracelets.   I believe that beauty is looking effortlessly amazing, and my goal is to have {knotieties} help everyone do that.


WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE BEAUTY TIPS & TRICKS?

My favorite hair trick is those twisty-turban towel thingies. i have super curly locks but wear it smooth 98% of the time, which can be very hard on your hair if you are using a flat iron or blowing it out constantly. first things first, if you are washing your hair every day, it's too much, give every other a try and watch your hair health improve. okay, back to the tip. after an evening shower i load up my hair with Kerastase Ciment Thermique & Shu Uemura Oil comb through lightly just to make sure its evenly dispersed the wrap my mane up in the little turban towel & leave it in there for a few hours or fall asleep with it then yank it out at some point in the night. i find that it helps lock in all the product and moisture. then when my hair is pretty much dry by morning, i spray on some Straight.Sexy.Hair Smooth & Seal and run a huge barrel curling iron through sections of my hair for super smooth voluminous locks :) ...and {knotieties} to keep all that hard work looking awesome...breakage&dent free :)


DO YOU FOLLOW ANY BEAUTY TRENDS?

I think for the most part I am a little slow when it comes to the very trendy stuff. my wardrobe and look is classically simple. I live in California & I think the most popular look is high end casual.....you know, your favorite designer jeans, a comfy hoodie and cute flipflops (or flats), which usually require some sparkle or girly flare for me.


WHAT IS ONE FASHION TREND YOU HOPE TO NEVER SEE AGAIN?

I will never understand why the 80's fashions have returned...i wouldn't hall the 80's a fashion style at all...it was just a hot mess. seeing celeb's where wear neon printed jampants that should only be worn by professional wrestlers or a fedora that looks too small for your head and those weird circle shades...sorry I don't think they looked good on Duckie from sixteen candles so why does Beyonce think it works now?


BEING A GIRL IS FUN..
WHAT GIRLY OR PAMPERING THINGS DO YOU LIKE TO DO?

For me, finding ways to be girly, feminine and pamper myself is a must for my sanity. between my manly hubby, and two rough and tumble sons, the need for some flowers and sparkle is ever present. i think that is why I love and enjoy making and designing {knotieties} so much...since i don't have any girls to cover in sparkles, ruffles and bows, i can make them for others to enjoy for themselves and their little girls.
