As we tried to curate a theme for this winter month, we got totally stuck and decided to turn to you for ideas. We received just one comment but we appreciated it so much. The comment suggested an Irish themed box to celebrate St. Patricks Day. Perhaps a detox for after the celebrations or one that somehow ties in an irish tradition. For instance, braided hair is a symbol of luck and power in Ireland. Although this is typically a wedding tradition we love the symbolism and wanted our next giveaway to celebrate it! We already did a full BeautyGram so this is a single product giveaway in celebration of this lovely idea and the best part is YOU GET TO CHOOSE! If you can tell us briefly about an ancient hair tradition in any culture in the comments below, we’ll enter you to win it and the winner will be chosen randomly.

In Japan, Kanzashi are worn in hair as hair ornaments. They include beautiful arrangements of materials such as wood, gold and silver plated metal, tortoiseshell and silk, and plastic.

The Yao people of China believed that long hair can bring wealth, longevity and good luck, so they traditionally only cut it once right before they marry.

I think I’ve read that in the Victorian Britain it was believed that long hair shows woman’s fertility.

Jewish Orthodox women wear wigs over their natural hair for modesty once they are married. The only person who ever sees the women’s natural hair after that is the husband.

In Africa some women will have their heads shaved when they are married to symbolize a new beginning.
