Fall really begins when the sun crosses the plane of the earth’s equator (September 22nd to the lay person), but Labor Day is the symbolic end of summer; the weekend when we get out the barbecues and the whites one last time. If this sounds something like you, and you love romantic bohemian styles, an easy messy pony inspired by Blake Lively should be your perfect Labor Day ‘do.

Chic, sleek side-parts are set to be all over next week’s Fashion Week runways, so if you want to beat the hoi polloi to the trend, this Holiday weekend is go. Hair is kept ultra-slight with the front worn sleek across the head, giving a glossy, geometric feel. Shiny, clean, and feminine the style should be controlled, but the hair should not be stiff.

Forget those chunky headbands you wore back to school. The new headband for Fall (get ready to see it at Fashion Week) is slender and elegant. Functional and fashionable, headbands hold hair in place, add a focal point, and work with styles bohemian to bombshell. We love headbands worn with loose waves, they work great with messy chignons, and on straight styles, you can backcomb the crown to create height and drama, while using the headband to hold it all in place. Fancy giving the slimline headband a try this weekend? Click style notes for our tips.
