Made by master stylist at ARROJO studioCheryl Fazio, as part of a collection titled, ‘Light and Sweet’, this is a vivid interpretation of a modern occasion style. For the girl who wants to frolic in the meadow, or simply be different, this whimsical style suits everything from summer music festival to garden parties and weddings. The trend for flowers in hair abounds this spring and summer, yet its seasonality means it will be gone by the time the first leaves fall; if you want to wear it, the time is now. And it’s easier than you think. All Cheryl did was buy some flowers from Chelsea Market, blow-dry the hair, and then twist together the stems to create a flower-power headband. For her own insights, click style notes.

Kate+Middleton+Long+Hairstyles+Long+Wavy+Cut+PTbGA-fk-iRl

Kate Middleton’s archetypal long layer cut and side part bears the hallmarks of a classic style for a modern beauty. With lush, dense locks, layers are a great way to create space for hair to swing and move, and to give freedom to arrange styles in a variety of ways. The side-parted bangs, meanwhile, have beautiful shape and free-falling movement, which plays into the artful tousle of this lengthy, feminine style. It’s a great fit for Kate’s strong cheekbones and pretty eyes. We love her color too. An enhancement of her innate hue, brunette keeps the heiress earthy and natural.

Platinum locks with vibrant tangerine tips provide an unexpected mix of soft coolness with vibrant warmth. Bright tips are fun, but they’re also functional. The vibrant color makes hair seem thicker by drawing the eye to the perimeter shape. We especially love vibrant hair paired with glossy lips in a sheer version of the same tone as shown here. Read the style notes for tips on achieving the look and professional color formulations. –– Laura Martin

Scary Movie 5 may be giving people the creeps, but Ashley Tisdale’s classic long, side-parted layer cut has the scintillating color that inspirits the heart. A mocha to dirty blonde ombre, combined with sultry dark eyes and tan complexion, it gives Ashley an Amazonian quality –– strong and sexy and powerful. Modern highlighting patterns and freehand hair painting can both achieve this look; the most important thing is to get tones that suit you. For professional tips, click style notes.

This is a great way to wrap the headscarf around the top of the head to create luxurious bohemian style. Worn with softly tousled waves, use headscarves to add beatnik spirit to your spring and summer looks.  A benefit of headscarves: they protect hair from elements like sunshine, heat and humidity, so they are a splendid fit for summer. If you want to wear a headscarf, flowery patterns provide hippy chic; plain, bold colors offer poise and panache. For tips on wearing them right, click style notes.
