Sexy and serious, this style brings braiding into a vintage silhouette. We love the asymmetric slant, which looks, feels like a bang. The vibe is part sex kitten, part shop girl, which makes it appropriate day or night. The defined brows and vibrant pink lipstick enhance the retro feel. Since the braid sits so close to the front hairline, you can wear this updo even if you have short layers or mid-length locks.

This sultry, peek-a-boo fringe with matching red lips reminds us of Jessica Rabbit. We know she’s not real, but man, what a fox!

Adding crimson to tresses amps up any look, and it can even make you feel a little naughty. See the style notes for steps to achieving this incredible shade.

Anyone with hair length from chin to shoulder can create a similar style, and it’s easier than your think. Click style notes for tips…

We love dip-dyed ends and creative color choices in hair, but remember you can use them in ways that go from subtle to bold. With the advent of hair chalking, you can even test this look before you commit, or simply wear it for a night on the town, then wash it away before you return to work. Click style notes for more tips on a pastel candy-coat.
