Lily Collins is one to watch. Last week we spotted the style chameleon wearing a prim and proper side part, but this week she goes to the opposite end of the hair style stakes  with this choppy wave cascade.

Adding a fiery touch to her earthy and natural aesthetic, we also love the hint of crimson in the color. For our tips on recreating a similar shape, click style notes.

As fall approaches my eye is naturally drawn to jewel tones. The thermometer is still pushing 90, but I’ve already pulled out my fall boots and started throwing scarves over my sundresses. My approach is pretty impractical — I’m usually longing for sandals by midday. But changing your hair color is a great way to add a touch of rich autumn color without looking unseasonable or feeling uncomfortable. This deep cool red looks stunning with pale blues and greens and the violet undertones will show off a golden summer glow, making it a great chic for now and the months to come.
