We’ve all heard of the “silver fox,” the good-looking gentleman whose grey-white hair makes hearts flutter. Now there’s a new trend in town. Born out of the drift towards different shades of red, foxy copper-tones are giving women vixen appeal. This brilliant titian is as shiny as a new penny. The sparkle is enhanced with smooth lengths and a blunt, brow-skimming bang. The foxes on her sweater tells us all we need to know about Mary K’s inspiration for this lovely hue. To get the look in a few simple steps, click style notes. 

In between lengths can seem boring. Short cuts show off head shape and frame the face; long hair can be bombshell or sweet, and presents lots of styling options; but hair that falls between chin and shoulder can look boxy or bushy. The key to a great look at this length is creating contrast by mixing opposites: dark and light, short and long, straight and wavy or curly. Contrast provides visual interest and a modern feel. With two colors and two textures, the image above presents a great example of ways to make mid-lengths work for you. For professional tips, click style notes. 
Fashion blogger and stylist, Camilla from, was kind enough to share this brilliant step by step with us. Combining two modern trends –– the high bun and the braid –– this look is perfect for Holiday parties. We love how putting hair up helps to elongate and spotlight cheekbones and chin, while the synthesis of braid and bun creates chic insouciance for the girl about town. For Camilla’s hints for achieving this look, click style notes.
