Shoulder length cuts offer a happy medium between short and long, combining easy, fun style with just enough length to pull off a ponytail. Minimal layering keeps the shape lean and adds weight to the ends for a lush, sleek look. Shoulder-length styles elongate the neck, draw attention to the clavicle, and softly frame the face.  Parted on the side, these kinds of styles fall seductively across the brow; pushed back, they can create a halo of soft volume. Read on for instructions to getting and wearing your own version of these easy, beautiful styles. –– Laura Martin

This year, the beach wave will continue its journey to the zeitgeist of hair fashion. Creating the trend everyday with rollers, products and tools is, however, a time-consuming task. So a new wave of permanent texture services are gaining popularity.  American Wave, as example, is able to shape modern, multi-textured looks –– like the one pictured above –– without dryness or damage, as the old-fashioned perms used to do. In this cascading hairstyle, we see undulating waves, sexy and tousled, adding the timeless beauty and grace of texture to a classic long look –– perfect for bohemian days by the beach. For more insights to American Wave, click style notes.

Rosy cheeks are a long standing trait of classic femininity. A delicate blush looks healthy and pretty, accentuating the eyes and cheekbones.

Pair this shade with soft pink makeup for a delicate, sunny flush. Read on for tips on creating this shade with a professional formulation. –– Laura Martin
