Some girls have it all. With her Trop Rouge blog, Christina Caradona is the acme of the New York fashion blogging scene. She’s incredibly beautiful. She has an innate sense of trends and beauty and style. She’s got the most gorgeous, naturally textured tresses. And she knows when to mix it up with a hot straight look. (Oh, and she spends half her time sunning in the South of France!) The blown out version, cut by Zeph O’ Hora for ARROJO NYC, is designed to support textured tresses. Concave layering creates space and support for curls, while making it easier to blowdry hair straight. The long fringe adds versatility; it can be center-parted when worn curly, or swooshed to the side when worn straight. We love the personality of Christina’s textured locks, and she should keep them like that more often than not, but for a dynamic change, we adore this softly tousled straight style –– it’s so street tough!

At Style Noted, we invite hairdressers to submit their own inspirational work so we can all share ideas for great new styles. Our latest submission is from Mark Heavener, owner of Salon Heavener, Laguna Hills, California. This short, razor shag uses inventive, triangular cutting patters that create disconnections, heavy layers, space and freedom for hair to swing and move. It shows that a well-executed, trendy and textured, loose and natural cut can also be age appropriate, and create youthfulness.

From adorable tween to one of Hollywood’s hottest young actresses, Hayden Panettiere, has spanned the spectrum of hairstyles. From long and layered and luscious to short and sleek, she knows how to work it. The benefit of these slick, cropped strands is that it exposes her beautiful, alluring face, which is defined by those deliciously strong cheekbones. Originally cut like this in 2010, it was a great way for her to get away from a girly, girl image –– it’s an edgy, grown up cut that puts a fresh spin on her look.
