Kate Moss, the ultimate rocker princess of our generation, was the inspiration behind the half braided dos at Rodarte‘s fall presentation. Recreate the edgy yet ethereal look by protecting the hair with L’Oreal’s Multi-Restorative Dry Oil before curling with an iron for added texture. Pull some hair back on each side into two loose braids, connect them into a rose-like coil, and secure with several bobby pins and hairspray. Create another loose braid down the middle and you are ready to rock ’n’ roll!
While I’ve been parting my hair down the middle for ages, I’m suddenly inspired to transition to the deep side part thanks to this youthful yet sophisticated hair trend. Experts say it’s best to not let the part go past the outer tip of your eyebrow – a great tip to prevent an overly lopsided do!
I can only imagine how liberating it must feel to take the leap towards the ever so sophisticated pixie cut, made popular by 60s icons Twiggy, Jean, and Mia. Unfussy and easy to manage, the face-transforming do certainly isn’t for everyone. But honestly, what’s the worse that can happen? When all is said and done, hair does grow out. So would you ever be brave enough to go for the full chop?
This season on the Tibi runway, low ponytails were loosely tied and tucked into hoods and sweaters for that carefree, lived-in look. To recreate the style is as simple as protecting clean hair first with L’Oreal’s Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Crème and then roughly blowdrying it for volume. Adding a few wavy curls through the midsection helps give it that extra volume. Then pull the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, secure it with a hair band, and wrap a section of hair around the band to cover it. Pull out a few pieces to loosen the look, spray with our favorite Elnett for hold, and voila, you’ve got an effortlessly chic ponytail . . . with very little effort. No sweat!
We can’t think of a more romantic do than a pretty crown of plaits, especially with Valentine’s Day just around the corner. For those of you that may be intimidated by this seemingly complex style, all it takes is sections of braids (the messier, the better) and a handful of bobby pins to help them stay in place. And for someone with shoulder length hair, I can even rock this look thanks to this tutorial from the ladies at The Beauty Department. Happy braiding!
Oh, the vexing question every girl has asked herself when it comes to taking the frontal fringe leap: should I or shouldn’t I? Bangs sure aren’t the lowest of maintenance but once you achieve that perfect Jane Birkin-esque set, you may never want to grow them out . . . I can certainly attest to that! So where do you stand on bangs? Yay or nay?
