Hairstyles that hold up in the rain

Seattle weather can be tough on hair. Especially in the Spring - walk in to grab a coffee and it's sunny; walk out and it's pouring! Having no way to conjure an umbrella out of thin air you make a dash for it. Result - drowned rat look for rest of day. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Check out our latest video feature on Seattle Refined. We've got all the tips you need for looking great in the Northwest - rain or shine!


Red Carpet Trends

Some of our favorite trends for Spring showed up on the red carpet last night. The pony is all grown up, lipstick makes a comeback, updos go for glory... and the eyes (still) have it.
