This is an ultramodern long and layered bob, cut to the collar-bone. There is nice texture and some separation, which adds playful piece-y-ness on the the ends. The shape of the cut brings definition to the cheeks; it’s a head-turning style that women can confidently wear everyday.  A darkish brown base is accented with ribbons of soft caramel highlights. The highlights give an extra touch of dimension to the cut, yet remain subtle and fine enough to look polished and sophisticated. A modern shape and hue for stylish and chic looks, while keeping hair low-maintenance.

One clever interpretation of a hair tie is to create one out of a hair strand. It is trendy and stylish, has earthy and organic aesthetic qualities, and won’t damage the cuticle like a rubber band can. For inspiration, use this ethereal image and romantic hairstyle. Anytime you take hair away from the face –– whether with a high or low pony, braid, or slick back –– consider leaving a few pieces draping because it is such an alluring way to add a face-frame.

A precise, yet slightly disheveled graduated bob, with the shape and structure to suit Chelsea Kane’s vivid, pretty features, we love the timeless elegance, beauty and grace of this cut. The swooshing side-bangs are so dramatic, and they place attention on cheekbones and chin, lips and eyes –– alluring features, one and all. A stylish and desirable look, it is short and structured enough to make day to day styling easy.

It is a proud start to the week at Style Noted. Just a few weeks in to our new blog (that would be February), we told anyone that would listen thattop knots would be hot. Well, now it is official! When Kim K wears one we can be sure they’ll be top knots all the way from Main Street to Miami Beach this summer. The top knot is a modern version of a casual updo, and a great way to add height and drama to any look –– wear one today!
