Laura Ellner is a blogger, stylist, and social media consultant based in New York City. In her blog, OnTheRacks, Laura regularly posts pictures and rants about different things she desires and is inspired by (common topics include shoes and wine). She has been featured in Elle, Glamour, NYLON, and a whole lot more. Eager to see inside the lives of our favorite style bloggers, we follow her as she preps for a night out on the town. Be sure to check out her routine in the slideshow above, plus Try On! her final look with just 1-click below!

Recently, I’ve been all about trying new things. Whether it’s the way I style my clothes, how I do my makeup, or mixing up my hair routine. I’ve always been a fan of big, messy waves with lots of volume, but it’s been fun to experiment with different products and ways to accomplish this look!

I snapped a few photos while getting ready to go out to dinner with some girlfriends over the weekend. This was the first time I had used Vidal Sassoon Pro Series products, and I could definitely notice a difference. You can’t go wrong with salon inspired (and affordable!) products to help you create any look at home.

I was feeling a bit retro so I opted for these funky leather shorts and a basic tee. Since the shorts make such a statement, I wanted to keep the top nice and simple. Plus, this way my hair and makeup would really stand out against my shirt. I wanted to achieve a dramatic makeup look to match my big hair, and smokey eyes seemed appropriate for a night out on the town. To finish the look, I added on a bright red lip for a bold look from head to toe!

First step is working on a perfect makeup look for a night out!

Not sure where I would be without all my beauty essentials. These are some of my favorites right now.

Once my makeup is done, I'll move on to my hair. This Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse is like magic! Gotta love a good volumizing mousse. Best when applied to damp hair, before blow drying is complete.

Blow dry hair freely – no brush necessary! Just another volumizing trick (don't be afraid to get a little crazy here, you can smooth it out later).

You want to make sure to use a product that works really well for hold but doesn't weigh your hair down... I sprayed a bit of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Hairspray while blow drying, and then again at the end to keep things in place.

The Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Volume Collection is a must-have on my dresser. Boost up your volume and keep your hair looking and smelling great with these goods.

Finally, have fun messing it up a bit! This is a good way to achieve casual, beachy waves. Run your fingers through your hair and shake!

The next step is picking out my outfit for an evening out with the girls!

A handful of steps later... here is the finished look! Patriotism and messy waves comin' atcha.
