Offbeat Magic: Party Hair!

Offbeat updo #1: pretty in pink

When VAIN BFF + Offbeat Empire founder Ariel Meadow Stallings asked VAIN if we’d updo her staff for her mega Offbeat Empire reception, we didn’t hesitate. We love Ariel’s DIY, DWYW, nontraditional approach to weddings, parenting, home, and style in general. Party hair without borders? YES.

So an A-team of VAIN stylists (including Rebekah, Janae, and up-and-coming assistant Braeden) packed up the crimping irons + industrial strength hairspray and went to work. Here’s what went down as the Offbeat hair went up:

Party time! The teased and the tame get wild.

Huge thanks to photographer Jonas Seaman for taking all the above photos. Check out Jonas’ re-cap of the party with lots more hair shots here, and the official Offbeat Empire re-cap here.
