Camp Gifts for Summer

Camp Gift Guide

Today Kitsch we want to share a few awesome ideas for summer camp gifts.  Kitsch hair ties and headbands are a special little something to send to your camper that she will love wearing in her hair or on the wrist.  We wanted to show you a few ways of how to send your Kitsch hair ties other than just sending the pack alone!  Take a look:


                                  
  • Candy!  Almost every kid loves candy and they'll be happy to see a sweet treat from home.  We recommend tying Kitsch hair ties around a bag of your camper's favorite candies.


  • Mad Libs.  Tape a pack of Kitsch to the inside of Mad Libs.  Not only will she love playing this classic game with her friends, but she'll have some cute new hair ties to show off!




  • 3. A new water bottle!  We like using a solid color that you can't see through and putting the hair ties inside.  Remember to leave a note letting your camper to look for the surprise inside the water bottle!



  • 4. Bug Spray - that actually smells good.  Keep your camper bug bite free and smelling clean at the same time with these eco friendly bug sprays!

  • And to top it off, everyone loves a little card or note, letting them know how much you care.

Kitsch Inspiration: The Virgin Suicides


Kitsch Inspiration:  The Virgin Suicides

This film is so visually inspiring.  The Virgin Suicides does not disappoint in terms of fashion and beauty.  We especially love the 70s peasant dresses, fresh-faced makeup, and the girls' bedroom.  Sofia Coppola really knows the importance of little details.

 



If you're digging this girly vintage look, check out our hair ties sold at Free People.  This pack includes floral, tie dye, and other beautiful colors.  Have a great day!

Kitch loves Downtown LA!!!

Our Kitsch offices are located in a high-rise loft in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and we couldn't be happier!  The art, architecture, the music, the culture -- it's all so unique and inspiring.  And we're certainly delighted to see the revitalization of the community.  Just this weekend, we left our offices to discover a rockin' street festival only a few blocks away and snapped some photos with our camera phones.  Check out this one of a graffiti artist doing a mural at night!

Kitsch Travel: Luggage Tags

Kitsch Travel:  Luggage Tags

Today we wanted to share a fun and fashionable way to dress up your luggage using your Kitsch hair ties.  We love how pretty our hair ties look with this vintage suitcase and how effective they are for spotting your luggage on the baggage carousel.  You can also use your Kitsch hair tie to hold your ID tag on it by poking a hole through the tag and stringing your hair tie through the hole.  Happy travels!

Storing Your Kitsch

Storing Your Kitsch


Hi guys!  Today we wanted to share some ideas for storing all of your Kitsch hair ties.  We know that jewelry boxes and vintage or new decorative cups are great options for storing hair ties, but we wanted to give you some creative alternatives.  Take a look:



We love this DIY polka-dot tray we saw on Shopsweetthings.com.  This looks like a cute, fun project and we like the tray because its great for displaying the jewelry you wear most often and whichever Kitsch hair ties you have on rotation.



These classic jars are perfect for the Kitsch addict to store all her hair ties.  They also make for a colorful addition to any vanity or bathroom.


Be inventive!  We never would have guessed Kitsch would look so adorable on this decorative bottle.  You could also add some pebbles or gems to the bottom.

Please share with us how you like to store or display your Kitsch hair ties.  You can leave us a comment below.  Thanks and have a lovely day!

Chignon Tutorial

Chignon Tutorial



Hey everyone!  Kitsch is excited to share our chignon tutorial with you today.  A chignon is a classic up-do that seems difficult to do but is pretty simple if you have a great set of directions and practice a bit.  Our Kitsch hair tie is perfect to use in this look because it's super comfy!  Try it out:


Directions
1. Using a large iron, curl the ends of your hair in.
2. Separate your hair into 3 sections.  You should have a back section and draw two lines from the top of your head to your ears for the other 2 sections.
3. Backcomb (like teasing) the back section of your hair and put into a low ponytail using a Kitsch hair tie.
4. Lift up the back of your ponytail and pin it your head.  Use as many bobby pins as it takes to make it secure.  Your ponytail should be pointed upwards to the ceiling.
5. Now with your ponytail in your hand pointed towards the ceiling, backcomb the underpart of your ponytail.  This is just brushing the under part of the pony from the tips of your hair to the hair tie in your hand.
6.  Make a big loop with your ponytail and pin the ends of it near your hair tie.  Make sure it is secure!
7. Backcomb the root area of one of your side sections.  Now wrap it over your chignon and pin.  Repeat with the other side section.
8.  Spray thoroughly with hairspray.
