Hi, I'm Larry Davidson, from Davidson's Clothing in Roanoke, Virginia. And, I'm here to tell you how to dress up a black suit. Well, a black suit, if you're going to make it elegant and dressy, you're talking black and white. So, the first thing you want to do is dress it up with a great, crisp, white shirt. The other thing that dresses up any suit, but particularly a black suit, is to have a pocket square. Touch of color, and here we've got black and white, which is exactly right with a crisp, white shirt. The other thing you can do, the ultimate dressy necktie to wear with a black suit, would be a silk satin. You can see the very smooth, shiny fabric, very elegant, very dressy. The other thing you can do is combine elegant and dressy neck wear with a satin stripe in the tie alternating with the other woven colors but, very subtly, still keeping it black and white. A textured shirt would also add some elegance, as well as would be a French cuff. A French cuff would be very elegant, and dress up a black suit. The spread collar is much more elegant and much more dressy than a straight collar. So, I would encourage you to consider a spread collar shirt. And, if you're going to wear a necktie, wear one that is a woven fabric, a woven pattern, not a printed pattern. So, you've got a beautiful paisley here, very retro, very elegant. So, you've got a black suit, if you're going to have it elegant and dressy, crisp black and white does the trick. In certain situations, you can be elegant without a necktie. You'll have to make that decision as what's appropriate. But, the pocket square is always going to help. And then, there's a situation where I would contrast that with a sport shirt, which makes a black suit look great, because a black suit is so versatile. But, if you're going to make it elegant and dressy, add the satin touches. I'm Larry, and that's how to dress up a black suit.
Hi, I'm Holly Silva, and I've been a crafts expert for 15 years, and today I'm going to show you how to dress up votive candles. So here I have some little votive candles and I'm going to take some Elmer's Glue and dab the Elmer's Glue around the edge of the candle, just the bottom edge because that's where it's going to last the longest. There we go, just a light layer. Now I'm going to take some glitter and tap the glitter around to attach to the glue. Now this is really cool because you can use this for anything. You can use these as party favors, you can use these as centerpieces. You can use them for holiday decorations. A little bit of red, a little bit of green for Christmas maybe, or you know, some blue for Hanukkah. Okay? And then you can do one of two things, well you can do many things, but for this example we're going to keep the glitter on this and we're going to keep this one bare and then we're going to just dress up the dish with a couple of little pearls. Now make sure that whatever glue you're using, or glitter, or anything that you're adding to these candles is going to be non-toxic and flame resistant. You don't want anything that's going to burn, melt, or explode. Keep away from those things. It went from bare and like just very basic to fun and pretty. And that's how you dress up votive candles. See you next time.
Hi, I'm T. Cooper. I'm a New York City makeup artist, hair stylist and I'm also co founder of beauty and grooming company Metro Look. Today, we're going to talk about how to dress up your hair for a wedding. Now for this look you're going to need of course hairspray if you know me you know I can't live without my hairspray. Either a fine toothed comb or a teasing brush. And plenty of bobby pins. Now I've already teased my model's hair. You can see all this amazing lift throughout here. But I'm just going to do one section for you just to show you how to tease. So what I did is I took out a section of her hair and went in with some hair spray. Teased it at the root. And then I back combed with my fine toothed comb. And I did this until the hair stood up. You know you're done teasing when the hair stands up on its own. Like see that right there. I'm going to turn it to the side. You see how the hair is poking out that way. That's how you know it's been an effective tease. And then you just smooth the hair. Teasing is a great way to make it look like you have more hair than you do and it's almost pretty much all the wedding hair styles I see and I see tons of weddings and I'm always teasing somebody's hair. So we've already got a nice poof going on. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to do something off to the side because I love to do side dos. So what I'm going to do is I'm just going to take a section at the side, smooth it out and then I'm going to twist it and pin it over. I'm going to turn it to the side so you can see it just a little bit better. I'm going to take another section and do the exact same thing. Twist it right underneath and you place it right underneath. And you can criss-cross your bobby pins if it doesn't feel secure. Because the foundation of a wedding hair style is so important. You really need to make sure it's going to hold all day. And now I'm just going to do one more at the very bottom. So now with this hair at the side we're going to leave nothing out. It's all going to be about the action going on at the side. And we're going to gather this hair and put it into a ponytail. And secure it as many times as you need to just to make sure it's not going anywhere. Then I'm going to take large sections of the hair. I'm only going to take about three or four sections. I'm going to loop them and pin it against the head. You just loop in and pin. I'm going to do maybe three more sections. They can be as large or as small as you'd like. Just loop and pin. It adds a lot of great dimension to the style as well. Last section and I'm going to bring it up over here. Mess with the shape any way that you like. Then you're going to go in with your spray. Spray it to make sure it's not going anywhere. And this it what it looks like from the back. I'm T. Cooper, and I just showed you how to dress up your hair for a wedding. Thanks for watching.
