Sleek, smooth and shiny, her hair has been polished up, and then tucked elegantly behind the ears, with the side-part encouraging eyes to sweep across a pretty face. To style modern choppy cuts to be smooth, it’s important to choose the right products and tools; for our tips, click style notes.

Spring brings warm weather, beautiful blossoms, and brides. Wedding season is here, and a slew of brides to be –– not to mention bridesmaids and wedding guests –– are stepping out in this season’s nuptial ensembles. Mermaid dresses, tulle, and rouching are big bridal trends this season, especially when paired with oversized gilded and jeweled hair pieces. These accessories offer the glamour of a tiara but have a more sophisticated vibe. Read the style notes for tips on wearing these stunning embellishments. –– Laura Martin

Jennifer Lawrence is a Style Noted favorite: She’s quirky, funny, and doesn’t take herself too seriously; a carefree spirit with a chic sense of style. At the recent GLAAD’s event we were floored by her new cut –– a low-maintenance tousled shag that fits her youthful vibe and enhances her face-frame. Last week, Jennifer wowed us again, appearing at The Great Gatsby premiere wearing a Viktor + Rolf gown paired with a simple updo and no makeup. The demure, combed-back style pulled hair away from her face, showing off glowing skin. We love the combination of the attention-grabbing dress and the bare beauty look. Jennifer proves again she is a chameleon of style, while staying true to her own identity. Spring is the perfect time to emulate Jennifer’s bare beauty –– to learn how to achieve this minimalist beauty style, click to style notes.–– Michelle Rotbart
