Karlie Kloss’s bob was named the hair cut of the year for all the wonderful, carefree tousle and flow of her perfectly imperfect look. Fashion Week, however, is about portraying the designers vision, and here she shows the style’s versatility. Shaped into a super shiny, dramatic poker-straight look for Donna Karen’s bohemian yet brash SS 14 collection, this glossy style is all about keeping it sleek, while paying homage to classic wet looks. Surprisingly simple to recreate, click style notes to steal this editorial style.

Blog of the people, friend to the stars, today StyleNoted takes you behind the scenes of Rob Garcia’s En Noir Spring / Summer 2014 Ready-to-Wear collection presentation. With fans like Kanye and Lebron, this was one of the hottest shows during Fashion Week; thanks to our connection to ARROJO –– the cool New York hairdressing brand that did all the hair for the show –– I was taken behind the scenes to see elements of fashion and beauty meld into one cohesive, conceptually brilliant collection. Including signature leather pieces –– hand-treated to create various embossed and textured effects –– intricately printed tanks and t-shirts, track pants, and other monochromatic, urban-inspired designs, it was all reflective of En Noir’s elite meets street aesthetic. The models donned easy, cool hair. The wearable styles were inspired by the subtle yet nonchalant visual cues in the garments, and the soft texture seen in the leather pieces. To take a peek behind the scenes of the coolest wears and hair at Fashion Week, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

Featuring a mixture of indigenous textiles and prints, modernized by slinky silhouettes, Rebecca Minkoff’s inspiration for SS14 is taken from the Mexican surrealist, Frieda Kahlo. No surprise then, that we see bright colors, flouncy skirts, statement jewelry, and milkmaid braids –– all were staples of Kahlo’s remarkable self-portraits. Whether or not Mexican folklore is your thing, the artfully undone messiness of this milkmaid is as impacting as it is current. To learn to create it at home, click style notes.

If you lived through the nineties you may remember this move; supermodels, movie heroines, and popular girls would do it all the time. Sometimes it involved a casual motion of the fingers, sometimes a flick of the neck, but however it was achieved, the flip-over provided instant sexiness. It made hair look fuller, it created a cascade of movement, sometimes it even fell seductively over one eye. The trick was to make it look effortless, almost accidental. A defined part or stiff texture would ruin it; this look is all about movement. Learn how to get it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
