KURT COBAIN, HALLOWEEN 2014


This year for Halloween, my costume-goal was to: 1, not have to buy anything for my costume, 2, not need any makeup whatsoever, and most importantly, 3: no wigs! Sounds like a pretty strict list when picking out a costume, especially because I also want to be warm and comfortable; a far cry from the traditional girl uniform of lingerie + animal ears, that Mean Girls nailed right on the head. You can also head over to my Instagram to check out some of my Halloween throwbacks.

To book your own appointment, magical hair transformation, call 310-724-8167.

UGG CREATIVE COUNCIL BIG SUR ROAD TRIP


I partnered with UGG Australia to show you my take on their new special edition Grunge Collection, so I decided to take a week-long road trip to Big Sur, California with the boots in tow, and film and photograph the whole way - as well as document it on Instagram. I went hiking, swam in the ocean, had a meal in the middle of the river, got fresh flowers at a farmers market, and even picked up a few records from my favorite record store - don't worry, I'll show you which one in the video. Since I grew up right outside Big Sur, I have a local's take on the Central Coast of California, and I'm so happy I was able to create a project with my favorite place as the backdrop.

This wasn't my first encounter with UGG boots, I got my first pair in 4th grade after months of begging my mom for them after I saw this long haired surfer guy wearing them with shorts, and I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. Then of course I had to have a pair in high school to wear with denim skirts, shorts, and everything else. And now here we are all these years later, and they continue to be a wardrobe staple; whether you go for a classic pair, or their new rock and roll take on the classic boot. Of course there's that whole walking on a fluffy cloud thing too, that never gets old!

KRYSTAL SIMPSON X UGG AUSTRALIA BIG SUR ROAD TRIP VIDEO


I took a week-long road trip to Big Sur, California as a part of my partnership with UGG Australia, showing off their new special edition grunge collection at all my favorite spots along the coast. We hiked at Pfeiffer, lounged around at the River Inn, and made our way into Pacific Grove to my favorite record store Vinyl Revolution, and then to Monterey to a farmers market get some fresh flowers and way too much to eat. Head over to my YouTube channel for more behind the scenes videos and other projects. Special thanks to UGG Australia for allowing me to create this wonderful project!
