This crown braid is gorgeous! Here’s how to do it.
From pixies to “lobs” to long layers with blunt bangs… Which one would you want to try for yourself?
Fall is a time for change. Which one of these eleven looks do you want to try most?
Trend alert: super deep side part. To copy, choose which side you want your part to fall on and follow the imaginary line from the end of that eyebrow up toward your hairline. Use a rattail or teasing comb.
Before you commit to making the cut, you can always do a little test drive first. Here’s a short video tutorial on how to rock a faux bob.
True blush, dark lips, and undone updos… which of these Fall looks are you most excited to try?
As much as we live for beachy waves during the summer, they lack the air of elegance and sophistication that we crave, come fall. Enter, the classic and full waves. These cascading, silky strands have a retro-glam appeal that pairs perfectly with fall’s more structured and refined styles.
To pull this off, start with parting your hair down the middle. Take a large barreled curling iron, and working in large sections, curl your hair away from your face. Spritz a little hair spray once your remove the curling iron from heat, and repeat around the entire head. Once your curls are set, use a flat or paddle brush to comb them out into these waves. Finish off with a shine serum!
Ah, the ponytail. Remember when it was your cop-out look for days when you just didn’t want to deal with your hair? Now more than ever, though, ponytails are transitioning from frumpy to fantastic. The possibilities of how to style this go-to updo are just about endless. See 20 ways to take your ponytails to even greater heights.
Tired of long layers or fried ends from all those heated styling tools you’ve been using all summer long? Try the blunt cut! This is especially great for women with fine hair because it creates the illusion of thickness. It also elongates the neck to make you look more statuesque, adds movement at the ends, and is still long enough to give you styling versatility.
Another hot way to stay cool today: braided bun!
Fall 2012 Hair Trends
In: Straight waves
Out: Beachy waves
Every year there’s a new adjective to describe wavy hair: beachy, bouncy, bedhead. This year is no exception — except the adjective doesn’t start with a “b.” Pantene celebrity stylist Tippi Shorter is calling this year’s trend “straight waves.” “It’s uniform and polished, but lies flatter — it’s less of a curl,” she says.
To get the look, Shorter suggests using a spray gel on damp hair and then sleeping in three or four big braids. “Whether your hair is naturally straight or curly, this will change the texture into waves,” she says. “And if you’re in a rush, you can always blow dry the braids.” Once you’ve taken your braids out, use a 1-inch curling iron to define each of the sections even more.
Looking to change up your look, but not quite ready to chop all your hair off yet? Try bangs! The right style on your face shape can make your eyes pop, show off your amazing cheekbones, and even help hide any forehead problems.
Trend alert: the long bob aka the lob it leaves you with enough hair to change up your look, but not so much that styling becomes a chore.

I love Mary Kate’s wave in this picture. For the straight haired ladies who can’t get waves in their hair to stay for longer than an hour…here’s the trick…MOUSSE or STYLING CREAM. Best way to achieve a similar look is right after the shower.
I prefer doing this at night and waking up with wavy hair. If you want to piece out the waves, get a pomade (any will do) and warm up in your hands and loosely sweep through your hair.
