    Hey Rach I always admired your beautiful locks, I cant wait for your tutorial xo, Emily

  13. I always wear my hair straight, mainly because I can never get my hair to hold a curl! I’d love to know tips and the best products for getting the curl to last all day.

    Your soft waves are lovely. My hair is naturally very strait and nearly impossible to curl- even to wave. I have wave/curl envy right now. Thanks for sharing.

    Dear Rachel,

    I really enjoy reading your blog and following you on Instagram. I remember your blog post about hair extensions, I was just wondering if you still use them and if they are easy to style. Also, is this your natural hair color, if not do you mind if I ask about color details? Thank you and congratulations with the new pregnancy! I have three boys and it’s an adventure each day :)

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Hi Zeynep!! I don’t have hair extensions in!! Yes this is natural color but i do get shine treatments on it! Ask your hair stylist about them!!

      xo, Rach

  37. Annie says:

    Thanks for sharing the products you use! I wasn’t able to watch the streaming video online, unfortunately. Do you know if they’ll be posting it somewhere again? Or will you be sharing the video on your blog soon? I’d love to see it!

    That fluffy pink dress is so lovely <3

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
