    I’ve been getting inundated with emails, DMs and comments about my hair routine lately, so thought I’d give you a quick breakdown of how I create the classic voluminous curls I’ve been sporting in recent months.  Believe it or not, it’s a very simple process that really only requires 2-3 products and a trusty set of HOT ROLLERS!  I know, I know, the 80s called and want their hair tools back.  But hear me out on this one.  I break down exactly what products and tools I use and exactly why I use them below.  If you’re shocked and confused at my mention of hot rollers, you’re going to want to read up!


    Before jumping in, I should mention that my hair is naturally straight, and the process I detail below starts right after I’ve blow-dried my hair (I use this blow dryer).  If you have naturally curly hair, you’d likely need to straighten your hair first—either with a flat iron or with a round brush—before jumping in.



    STEP 1:  DRY SHAMPOO AND VOLUMIZING POWDER

    Favorite Dry Shampoos:

    Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo

    SHOW Beauty Premiere Dry Shampoo

    DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo (Brunette version HERE!)


    Favorite Volumizing Powders:

    Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion

    Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder


    After blow drying my hair, I always spray dry shampoo lightly throughout my roots, particularly on the crown of my head.  This not only helps add texture and volume to that area, but (fun fact!) it also extends your blow out.  Applying dry shampoo right after showering actually prevents oil buildup and does wonders for making your hair last for 2-3 days before the next wash (which is optimal for healthy hair).  You don’t want to wait until your hair is already super oily to start the dry shampoo process.


    PSA: If you’re a brunette that’s frustrated with the light powder of dry shampoos showing up on your dark roots, check out this dry shampoo that’s designed specifically for darker hair colors!


    In terms of laying a volume-optimized foundation for this hair style, dry shampoo at the roots is my go-to starting point on a daily basis.  However, when I’m really looking for extra volume for a special occasion or my hair just feels lifeless, I’ll also sprinkle volume powder lightly at the roots as well.  When using these products, remember two things: (1) a little goes a long way; and (2) you have to work the products into your hair and give them a little time to set.  Don’t be discouraged if your hair feels sticky and weird immediately after you apply.  If you continue through the process, the products settle in and you’ll start to see results.

    STEP 2:  VOLUMIZING HAIRSPRAY

    Favorite Volumizing Hairspray:  Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray


    After applying dry shampoo and volumizing powder at the roots of my hair, I lightly spray this hairspray throughout my hair.  When it comes to dry shampoos and volumizing powders, as noted in the section above, I have a few favorites that do a great job.  However, when it comes to hairspray, I’ve never found a hairspray that holds a candle to this Spray & Play hairspray when it comes to volume and hold.  After spraying it through my hair, I give it a second to dry and then completely brush out my hair again before using the hot rollers.

     



    STEP 3:  HOT ROLLERS

    My favorite hot rollers for tighter curls: Remington Compact Hair Rollers

    My favorite hot rollers for larger curls: Conair Pro Nano Hot Roller Set  (also very similar set here by the same brand)


    If you get the right hot rollers and give yourself a week or two to get used to using them, I promise you, you’ll never look back.  There are three main game-changer reasons I use hot rollers:


    (1) WAY BETTER FOR YOUR HAIR // Hot rollers are much much better for your hair than a curling iron or flat iron.  Since hot rollers sit in your hair for a longer period of time, they’re able to use a much lower heat temperature, slowly curling and adding volume, instead of scorching.


    (2) SO MUCH FASTER // If you’ve never used hot rollers before, it will take a few times to get use to wrapping your hair around each roller.  But after a bit of practice, I promise you will find that the entire process of doing your hair is INSANELY FAST.  To achieve this look, it takes me about 7 minutes total to do my hair from start to finish.  NOT KIDDING.  Instead of the painstaking process of curling each 1-2 inch section of hair with a curling iron, I throw each section of hair into its respective roller (it takes me about 3-4 minutes for my entire head), do my makeup for 10-15 minutes while the rollers set, then pull out all of my rollers, brush/shake it out, and I’m done.


    (3) WAY MORE VOLUME  //  Since hot rollers aren’t ironing out your hair (and flattening the cuticle), you’ll find that they produce significantly more bounce and volume from root to tip.


    A MAJOR DON’T:  I have used hot rollers since I was in middle school, so trust me on this one: DO NOT buy hot rollers that come with plastic clamps (that look like large butterfly clips, as pictured in this article).  Only buy hot rollers that come with metal clips like the two sets that I link to above.  In recent years, tons and tons of companies have been selling hot rollers with large plastic clamps because they think the average consumer will find them easier and more convenient to use than the skinny metal clips.  The downside?  I guarantee you will have giant crimps in your hair from where the plastic clamp holds the roller in place.  They’re virtually impossible to prevent with plastic clamps and I’ve found that this is the reason 99% of people think they hate hot rollers—because they have no idea that the crimps that they see throughout their hair after they take the rollers out are due to the crummy plastic clamps.  Metal clips secure the rollers in a way that totally prevents any crimping effect.


    TECHNIQUE TIPS:  When using hot rollers you have two options: (1) You can roll horizontally from the bottom tips of your hair to your scalp; or (2) You can roll vertically, starting at your roots and wrapping your hair around the roller from there.  I almost always use option one to create that bouncy, retro look, but if you want to achieve a more tousled, modern effect, you can also try the second technique.



    STEP 4:  MORE VOLUMIZING HAIRSPRAY

    Favorite Volumizing Hairspray:  Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray


    After pulling the hot rollers out, I lightly brush my hair and spray all over the same volumizing hairspray that was used in Step Two above.  Et voilà!

    NYC fashion blogger Mary Orton wears an oversized Mango checked blazer, a black turtleneck sweater, black Theory straight-leg pants, a black Brixton baker boy hat and black Gucci loafers to the airport.

    BLAZER: Mango  |  PANTS: Theory  |  TURTLENECK: Petit Bateau  |  LOAFERS: Gucci (affordable options HERE)  |  CARRYON LUGGAGE: Hartmann (the absolute BEST luggage and on sale HERE!!)  |  BAKER BOY HAT: Brixton  |  RED BAG: Theory  |  EARRINGS: Argento Vivo (similar HERE)  |  BELT: Gucci  |  LIP: Armani (406)

     

    You may recognize these black high-waisted pants from my recent post on fall staples for working girls, but having now worn them non-stop for the past couple months, I can confirm that they’re easily one of my best finds of the season.  With a crisp silhouette and high quality fabric, they’re perfect for the office or any professional setting, however, they also somehow have the feel of a super nice ponte pant, which made them insanely comfy to fly in.  As you can see, I decided to keep things easy with a monochromatic black base layer and then popped on this perfect oversized plaid blazer… which I basically never want to take off.

    If you’ve followed for a while, you know I’ll be rounding up all of the best sale info for you throughout the impending frenzy of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Week sales (and beyond!) but believe it or not, they’re already starting!  Nordstrom already has a ton of amazing items on crazy sale and Net-A-Porter has also already unleashed their huge Black Friday sale, which is one of the sales I look forward to the most each year.  I’m doing my best to pace my purchases over the next couple weeks (wish me luck!), but below are five items that were simply too good to pass up… 

    1. I love classic Adidas sneakers and snagged this pair of Stan Smiths in ivory.  Both ivory and bright white are a shocking 50% off!
    2. If you read this recent post, you know I’ve been binging on cozy cardigans lately, so I immediately jumped on this cashmere beauty at 33% off.
    3. I’ve had my eye on this Eddie Borgo bag in burgundy for months and was SO pumped to find it included in the Net-A-Porter sale.
    4. During the cold weather months I can never seem to have too many pairs of classic black trousers, so this Paul & Joe pair was screaming my name.  It’s got the perfect wide leg silhouette with just the right pleating detail.
    5. Stuart Weitzman booties at 40% off?  Sold!  Love that cognac brown hue.

    1. PEPPERMINT BARK //  This insanely delicious peppermint bark is a cult favorite for a reason.  These tins make the absolute best hostess gifts for upcoming holiday parties (and somehow they’re 25% off right now!!), so don’t even ask me how many sets I just ordered…
    2. STAPLE WOOL COAT //   A long wool coat is an absolute winter necessity and at a whopping 40% off, this classic coat is a no-brainer.
    3. OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS //  Black OTK boots are a must-have, and this brand nails quality, style and value. The chunky heel is just the right height for all-day comfort, and the adjustable tie ensures a perfect fit.  At over 50% off, grab ’em while you can—they’ll be sure to fly off the shelf.
    4. MIDI DRESS // Universal dress perfection, this navy number can take you anywhere.  I have it in white and just jumped on the navy version on sale.  The swing midi skirt, stand up collar and three-quarter sleeves provide style, form and year-round function.
    5. SKINNY JEANS //  I have these skinny jeans and absolutely love them.  They’re my go-to when wearing over-the-knee boots in the winter.
    6. GOLD CHOKER//  This choker is one of my favorite finds of the season (and it’s 50% off!)—it’s insanely versatile, and I absolutely love the weight and detailing.  If you scroll through my ongoing 30 DRESSES series, you’ll see me wearing it to a number of different occasions of varying formality.  (PSA: While I’m on the topic, these favorite sculptural earrings are also 50% off this weekend!)

They’re just as perfect for date night as they are for a client meeting, and can take you absolutely anywhere you need to go. #WorthTheSplurge
    10. BELTED DRESS //  This gorgeous tie-belt dress comes in grey and black.  I could see myself wearing it from the office to after-work drinks to brunch on the weekend (and everywhere in-between!).  I love the classic, tailored cut and the velvet belt adds the perfect modern yet elegant touch.
    11. FAUX FUR THROW //  There’s simply nothing better than curling up with a plush, luxurious blanket next to a roaring fire during the holiday season (and all winter long!).  These faux fur throws come in several different colors and sizes, but I couldn’t resist this amber one!
    12. SONOS PLAYBAR //  This Sonos playbar is a guaranteed home-run gift for absolutely anyone on your list (especially those hard-to-shop-for boys in your life!).  It adds full theater sound for your tv AND streams music too. Connect to Amazon Dot or Echo to request your favorite tunes.
    13. CASHMERE WRAP //  A cashmere wrap is truly a winter necessity, and this one is my top pick because it’s large enough to double as a scarf or a wrap! It’s currently 30% off (don’t forget code MORE17!) and is perfect for traveling or keeping at your desk for those chilly days in the office.

    16. BIG SEXY VOLUMINOUS HAIRSPRAY // S-C-O-R-E! This is the game-changer hairspray I was recently raving about in this hair post.  At over 50% off, I just stocked up on 5 bottles! (Not even kidding.)
    17. LEATHER TECH GLOVES //  These chic tech gloves allow for touchscreen use with all ten fingers, are made of genuine leather, and are lined with 100% cashmere.  Need I say more?  I bought an identical pair from this brand last year and basically didn’t take them off all winter long.  They’re currently 40% off, so snatch them up while you still can!
    18. PLEATED MIDI SKIRT // Silk, pleats AND over 50% off? SOLD. This Robert Rodriquez midi skirt would look just as great with a chunky turtleneck as it does with a crisp blouse, and the olive hue is neutral enough to pair with practically any other color.
    19. CAT-EYE SUNGLASSES //  Tons of designer sunglasses (Prada, Kate Spade, Burberry, Karen Walker, Ray-Ban, the list goes on and on!) are on major sale here.  I’m a sucker for a classic cat-eye, and simply can’t resist these beauties in Havana/Black.
    20. BAR CART // I’ve been looking for a great bar cart for almost a year now, and think I’ve finally found “the one“! Not only are bar carts great for storing glasses and knick-knacks in small spaces, they’re also a beautiful touch for any entertainer’s living room.  I love this one because it’s polished and attractive without appearing overly feminine.  I have to say, West Elm is one of my favorite furniture destinations.  We currently have this dresser and these matching nightstands in our bedroom and they’re on major sale as well!

    If you haven’t checked it out yet, take a gander through this post that lists a whopping 17 dresses from the #30DRESSESin30DAYS series which are currently on major sale!  Happy shopping friends!!

    FLORAL COAT: Smythe (currently 40% off!)  |  STRETCH-TWILL TOP: Tibi (currently 40% off!)  |  ASYMMETRIC SKIRT: Tibi (currently 40% off!)  |  ANKLE BOOTS: Halogen  |  RETRO SUNGLASSES: Elizabeth and James  |  CIRCLE BAG: Mansur Gavriel  |  VINTAGE EARRINGS: Chanel (sold out, similar HERE

    Thanks to the insane Black Friday weekend sales, this top, skirt AND floral coat are ALL 40% OFF right now.   If you haven’t checked out my complete guide to the Black Friday weekend sales and my top 20 sale picks, click here!


    You know I can’t pass up a killer matching set like this, but the asymmetrical detail of the skirt and the super cool ruching at the shoulders of the top had me in full swoon.  Of course, the beauty of the matching set is that the ensemble appears to be a dress when worn together, but you have the trifecta of three outfits in one.  The blouse looks just as killer with dark skinny jeans, and the skirt looks amazing with white blouses or knits.  Did I mention that BOTH pieces are 40% off?  Just one of the plethora of unbelievable deals coming your way this weekend.  In case you missed it, check out my complete sale guide here and keep checking in here on the blog as I’ll keep updating you on the best sales all weekend long!



    As you know (especially if you follow on instagram) this is probably the thousandth time I’ve worn this floral Smythe coat, and it won’t be finding a hanger in my closet anytime soon. (It likes its lovely spot draped over my bedroom chair, thank you very much.)  When I first purchased it, I was questioning what exactly I’d wear it with.  Answer?  Literally everything.  I had NO IDEA just how versatile it would be.  It somehow makes every outfit look polished, no matter the style, color, or occasion. The fact that you can snag this gem for 40% off right now (plus a ton of other killer finds!) is a no brainer.



    Last but certainly not least, I should give a shoutout to these white accessories which are a trend that’s definitely stealing the show this season. Much like my floral coat, I’ve been wearing these Halogen ankle boots like it’s my job because nothing seems to make an outfit pop quite like them.  I also can’t get enough of these retro Elizabeth and James cat-eye sunnies and this stunning Mansur Gavriel structured circle bag.



    In case you missed yesterday’s post on ALL of the amazing Black Friday sales happening RIGHT NOW, you best get on it.  You should also take a look at this post which (spoiler alert) shows where you can get almost every dress from my current #30DRESSESin30DAYS series on MAJOR sale!!  Happy shopping!!



    FLORAL COAT: Smythe (currently 40% off!)  |  STRETCH-TWILL TOP: Tibi (currently 40% off!)  |  ASYMMETRIC SKIRT: Tibi (currently 40% off!)  |  ANKLE BOOTS: Halogen  |  RETRO SUNGLASSES: Elizabeth and James  |  CIRCLE BAG: Mansur Gavriel  |  VINTAGE EARRINGS: Chanel (sold out, similar HERE

    Over the years, I’ve endured pretty much every possible curve ball mother nature can throw at you while commuting to work.  With sub-zero temps just around the corner here in NYC, I thought it was the perfect time to share the top five winter essentials that get me through the season. Not only will these 5 items be the biggest game-changers for your commute (pinky promise), but they will also make for amazing holiday gifts!!



    1. Earmuffs (with built-in headphones!)

    My friends, these earmuffs are GOLD.  No more “would you rather” games with yourself, vis-a-vis listening to your favorite podcast or avoiding frostbitten ears.  Whether you like the earmuff look or not (I happen to LOVE them!), they are the best cold-weather head gear option for commuting to work because they don’t destroy your hair.  But if you’ve ever worn earmuffs, you know the struggle of inserting headphones into your ears and then layering the earmuffs over them is very real.  Since these earmuffs have built-in headphones, you now have the whole two birds, one stone thing going for you.  Your hair looks perfect upon arrival to the office and you haven’t missed a podcast.  The earphone cord is detachable, so you can always revert back to vintage earmuffs if you want to be unplugged on the way to work.  I’m wearing these in black (which also come in chestnut and grey!), but I also love this furry style and these textured knits!  I also recently found out about Rebecca Minkoff’s beanie headphones and am dying to try them as well…

    2. Weatherproof Boots

    A pair of weatherproof boots that don’t look like you’re preparing to hike Mt. Everest is essential for those of us who commute to the office in snow and ice.  Enter Aquatalia boots, a hero brand in my book that has legitimately bridged the gap between style and function.  Not only do they look stylish, but they are also completely waterproof  and the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn.  Their super padded insoles makes you actually feel you’re walking on a cloud. I’m wearing the “Janie” block heel booties in the photos today (also available here and here!), but also have these sleek Chelsea boots in my shopping cart.  Check out all of their gorgeous styles of boots and regular footwear here!

    3. Classic Black Wool Coat (50% off!)

    Every working girl needs a classic black wool or cashmere coat that goes with everything.  I alway love military-inspired double-breasted buttons, but the midi length is key.  With a mid-calf length, you can pair it perfectly with any length dress or skirt, and it also looks killer with pants.  Pro tip: Don’t be fooled by a cute cut and tempting price tag!  Be sure the coat is made of over 50% wool and/or cashmere if you want to actually stay warm.  This Ralph Lauren coat, this similar Mackage beauty and this beautiful Vince Camuto coat all fit the bill and are all almost 50% off!


     



    4. Leather Tech Gloves

    There’s no question that leather gloves look more polished and professional than their knit counterparts, but they’re also much warmer and more durable.  These tech-friendly gloves not only look great, but all ten fingers will work on your touchscreen phone.  The gloves I’m wearing come in seven different sizes, are genuine leather, lined with cashmere, and if the regular price isn’t shockingly reasonable enough, they’re currently 40% off during Nordstrom’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend sales.  I wore mine every single day last winter and have already purchased three more pairs!

    5. Fur Stole / Scarf

    Your winter work wardrobe isn’t complete without a good scarf to stay warm on the way to the office.  While I love scarves for their ability to add interest to a classic coat, my winter MVP is a fur stole or scarf (how adorable is this one?!).  A black or neutral fur stole not only goes with absolutely everything, but it dresses up your look and also really ups the ante when it comes to warmth.  Nothing feels better on brutally cold winter days than that fuzzy goodness tucked right up under your chin!!
