Discovered on 3rd Street Promenade, Andy Grammer has come a long way from where he started. With his hot single Keep Your Head up featured in the smash Pitch Perfect, Andy’s fame has sky rocketed- but he still stays humble.

Before performing a jam packed show at The Grove, Andy Grammer stopped by stylehaus to shoot an intimate interview and check out what our stylists suggest for stage wear.

Afterwards, Andy Grammar won the hearts and eternal gratitude of two stylehaus stylists by hooking them up with free VIP passes to the concert this past Wednesday.

Post Coachella: Detox to Your Pre-Festival Self

large(via we heart it)

Coachella 2014 has come and gone and although some of us had to live the experience through social media and hamidown stories, we still feel as though we were right there with you. The only thing that separates us non-Coachella goers from the veterans is the aftermath. We do not feel your pain, but we can definitely help you get rid of it. Give your body some much-needed self-love to restore your vitals back to normal.

The sand and wind have damaged your locks and they’re in need of a cleanse.

DIY: Put on your favorite Sex and the City episodes and let it all soak in. Dry, oily or combination, Pure Jojoba has the perfect in-home hair mask guide that is quick, easy and straight to the point.

Salon: It may not be at the salon, but a salon treatment at home is always a great option. Kérastase has a conditioning mask, giving your hair intense nourishment to rid the dryness its dealt with in the California desert.

Face

We hope that you’ve had the chance to wipe off all that make-up by now but a good facial scrub will open those pores and allow them to breathe.

DIY: Homemade face scrubs are simple and use your basic household products. Check out She Knows for easy steps to four different scrubs that will leave your skin feeling fresh and new.

Salon: A deep poor cleansing facial could be more of your thing. Make an appointment with Bella Skin Institute, here in LA, so you can sit back and relax. I don’t know about you, but a regenerating and rejuvenating facial sounds like the perfect ending to a weekend of fun.

Paws & Claws

Even if you had the luxury of being in VIP, your nails are still feeling the aftermath of the sand storms. Maybe the toes were sheltered in ankle boots but if you’re digits are getting the treatment, why not get the whole package, right?

DIY: Before you start to soak, play a movie you’ve seen a thousand times and want to see a thousand times more. A little background noise makes the experience that much more enjoyable and if it’s a chic flick, maybe even a little more girly. Add some flower petals to your water for a touch of beauty and get to work on those nails, lady. Need a spring color? Essie’s hide & go chic is a perfect transition from winter to summer.

Salon: Maybe you just want to let someone pamper you and that’s ok. Head over to the Style Bar at Nordstrom The Grove. Not only is it open seven days a week, but they offer other beautify services as well. Can’t beat a one stop shop!

Vitamins

Vitamin C helps rejuvenate the inner body to fight off any sickness you may get from partying too hard. Your body is not 100% so give it some help with a little TLC and a multivitamin as well.

Diet

Eat clean and green along with some antioxidants, like blueberries, thrown into the mix. Get your immune system back with juicing and healthy snacks.

Exercise

Release the muscle tension from the hardcore dance parties with yoga and/or pilates. Don’t be shy to get a good sweat in with a cardio session to push out impurities from drinks, food truck food and whatever other not-so-healthy consumptions.

Music

Make a new playlist on Spotify or iTunes to calm down your inner EDM’er and embrace the soothing sounds of artists like Lana Del Ray and Adele.

Reading

Grab a new book to lose yourself in. Forget about the desert, as much as possible, and clear your mind to get back to reality. A good book and a glass of red wine is sure to calm your inner party girl.

Rest

The most important item after a long weekend of endless nights is rest. Get your eight hours in each night to help your body recoup. Allowing your body enough time to do nothing but repair is the best medicine you can take.

Throwback Thursday: Weekend One of Coachella

If you’re like any other Instagrammer, you’ve seen every Vanessa Hudgens and Alessandra Ambrosio photo possible from last weekend’s Coachella festivities. The fashion and music and, well fashion, had some shocking moments like Vanessa’s new long blonde locks and Kendall Jenner’s giant nose ring. For us, the bull-like jewelry was a little too much but the ladies of Coachella rocked our socks off.

Of course it wasn’t always like this and at the very beginning, Coachella 1999 was only a two-day event. Skipping 2000, the festival started back up in 2001 with just one day. The festival quickly grew and in 2002, the festival went back to a two-day format. Soon it would become a three-day event in 2007 and most recently, a second weekend was added in 2012.

Woodstock ’99 riots caused a no on-site camping rule for Coachella till 2002. This, of course, did not stop the festival goers from enjoying the sounds of big artists like Beck, Moby, Tool and more. Thanks to Pearl Jams’ boycott against Ticketmaster in 1993 and 25,000 fans, their performance at Indio’s Empire Polo Club shined some much-needed light on the desert location and soon became Coachella’s birth place.

With no real understanding of how Coachella fashion became Coachella fashion, we all can agree that it’s made a giant statement with its Woodstock inspired vibe and free spirit. If you walk down the Venice boardwalk, you’ll get a pretty good idea of just what to expect this upcoming weekend.

Throwback Thursday: The Days of Woodstock

Woodstock was not just a Music & Art Fair, it was a way of being in the world. The 1969 lineup kicked off the three day festival with a bang, including artists such as Blood, Sweat & Tears, Sha Na Na, and Jimi Hendrix. Much like Coachella, Woodstock was an escape into a land full of mingling, dreams, and endless opportunities. After approximately 80 lawsuits and thousands of dollars in debt, we’re sure it didn’t feel that way for the four men who started it all.

With many issues popping up like a last minute location change and demanding refunds, Woodstock would see many issues before finally calling it a free concert. We all know free attracts many and for this first time around, an estimated 500,000 people attended.

When comparing Coachella to Woodstock, we can definitely agree that the similarities are endless from an array of music and food to major fashion statements that are happening. The hippie fashion moment has never died and the California desert has allowed it to live on with too many crop tops, short shorts, and fringed crossbodies to count.

Hats

Music’s biggest night has also become one of fashion’s most exciting events, as country singers, pop stars, and our favorite celebrities, celebrate music in style at the annual Grammy Awards. Downtown L.A. has never looked so glamorous (except maybe at last year’s award show) as our favorite celebrities grace the red carpet in beautiful gowns and fabulous accessories. The Grammys are also a night of fashion firsts (and lasts), as we will never forget Nicki Minaj as Little Red Riding Hood, Sasha Gradiva’s guns as accessories, and Skylar Grey’s yellow fringed disaster.

Although collectively this year’s styles were more disappointing than anticipated, a few of our favorite show-stoppers wowed us with their choices and this year had quite a variety of styles. Rihanna was the style winner of the night for us, looking red-hot in a sizzling Azzedine Alaia dress, Neil Lane jewelry, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and red lips and nails to match. Her long, beach waves looked perfect and her makeup was natural and flawless. For us, Rihanna was a best dressed nominee, hands down! Taylor Swift usually plays it safe on the red carpet, and while she opted for her typical slender fitting long dress, we love the silver embellishments and cutouts of her J. Mendel gown paired with her braided hair, giving her an all-around Grecian goddess vibe. Adele was another celebrity who we love to see come out of her fashion shell, even though she always looks amazing. Veering away from her typical black or navy gown, Adele opted for a 50’s throwback look in this floral Valentino dress and looked feminine and beautiful. We applaud her for going outside of her normal attire and think this playful full skirt dress is great for spring!

Last but never least, Beyoncé went against the fashion grain in a stand-out black and white jumpsuit by Osman for his spring 2013 collection. The singer looked incredible as she completed her dual-tone look with a black Swarovski clutch, black peep-toe pumps, coordinating geometric bangles on each wrist, and bright-red lipstick for a pop of color. While we would have loved to see a glamorous gown from her, we love that she took a fashion risk and mixed it up.

Who should the fashion Grammy go to?
