HAIR & MAKEUP TUTORIALS
'Get Fancy' is an ongoing series of monthly tutorials Dana has created for Frankie Magazine since 2013.
They are designed to be fun and easy how-to's for readers and their friends to try at home with beauty products they may already have.
This has also been a chance for Dana to collaborate with many of her talented friends including photographers, hairstylists and local creatives.
Dana has really enjoyed the challenge of breaking down what may initially appear to be complicated processes into a series of easy to follow steps.

FISHBRAID HOW-TO - Some days we wake up and a plain old ponytail just won't do. Our locks are calling out for a fancier coiffure, and this fishbraid is a neat way to add some pizzazz without needing hours and a truckload of hairspray.
