Year in Review: 2013

By  |  0 Comments

Is anyone else shocked that later this week we will officially enter into 2014? I am. Seriously – this year has gone by in a whirlwind! And yet – it was a fabulous year! I thought I would put together a quick 2013 recap for you highlighting a few things from around our world here at France Luxe.

I joined the team in February just after they returned from a product development trip to Europe where many beautiful new hair accessories will be coming from in the early months of 2014! Just a few short weeks later we reintroduced one of our favorite items of the year, the pony cuff! Our L. Erickson Atelier Enamel Pony Cuff has exploded as one of our Top 10 items for 2013 and we’ve talked about it a few times, here and a video here. (Okay, let’s be honest, I’ve talked about it more than a few times. It’s a fave for sure!)

We also added to our collection of how to videos this year showing you how to wear Hair Sticks, Headwraps, Cascades and more! Check our our YouTube Channel to see all of them. Speaking of videos – we just finished our Holiday Hair series of which the most popular was how to do a French Braid! There will be more tutorials coming your way over the next few months too! Be sure to subscribe to our channel to stay up to date on our latest videos!

During 2013 we also teamed up with some pretty amazing bloggers to bring you some tutorials, giveaways and more! Check out some of the highlights here:

Another highlight for 2013 in our offices was being included in the pages of many of our favorite magazines! You can see the full collection here, but here’s a few of our favorites!
