If you’re headed to a party this weekend, or just feel like doing something a little special with your look, this hairstyle idea is perfect for you.


Here’s how you can recreate Emma Watson’s fresh take on the French twist at home.


Start by putting your hair into a ponytail that sits just above your ears.


Tease the ponytail to create a full shape.


Tuck the ends under and secure to the ponytail base with medium hairpins.


Finish the back by securing the bottom with more pins.


Mist with hairspray to get rid of fly-aways.


Use a hairpin to tuck back part of face framing layers that are too heavy.

Need a little more help getting it just right? Check out this tutorial video I made.

What do you think of this hairstyle? Will you try it out this weekend?

Trust me, if my mom is any indication, she’ll cry a little.

And speaking of crying a little, check out last year’s Smitten readers’ moms on this post. Too sweet!

Пресс фотоPress photo «Fed the hungry do not understand,» says a popular wisdom. What is it about? About the fact, that on a place of the hungry can be each. But already in place of a pensioner we will all be. And it is very useful to get a feel of what awaits us.

They exchanged purses

«Many of us do not think about retirement. Well, if such thoughts come to mind, then they usually associated with the travels and Hobbies, the benefit will appear a lot of free time. This is only feasible if such dreams in income, half smaller than the current salary?» – asked a question in the framework of its spring advertising campaign of Swedbank.

To find this out, the Bank organized a real experiment, the participants of which – working young man Janis and pensioner Skaidrite for one month (from February 7 to March 7) exchanged income. And purses (in the photo).

Janis within a month had to learn to live on a pension Skaidrite to 180 lats.

In turn Skaidrite given the opportunity to spend a month salary Janis – 400 LVL. According to the Bank about such a sum would be straight monthly pensioner, combining income from the state guaranteed pension for old-age and from 3-tier pension. Of course, provided that at the time of her youth already existed Bank, where it is possible to postpone the accumulation of the 3rd pension level.

Leave now in the side of the reasoning about the reliability of long-term savings in banks. Much more interesting to watch how developed the experiment. The more so that both parties were a kind of diary – all the events described in their profiles in the «Conf» and «Twitter». And their friends on social networks commented on the record and gave their advice. Below we present a selective part of the record.
