Designer Phillip Lim had a busy week. After a successful Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear show, he launched his 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target  line yesterday. The affordable assortment brought fashion to the masses, stirring up a Missoni-like rush (the previous collaboration shut down Target’s website) for the highly anticipated collection. Lim is known for making great wearable pieces, injecting street elegance in to classic design–– think pretty but cool. Complimenting Lim’s easy collection should be easy hair. The tresses at this year’s Spring 2014 show were more conceptual then usual; the look was a a wet, vine-y knotted updo, inspired by the collection’s earthy geology theme. This look isn’t fit for everyday, but it can be modified into a wearable style, perfectly matching any 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target digs.

French stylist Odile Gilbert created this look to complement the classic lines and unusual fabrics of Creatures Of The Wind’s spring collection. The effect was casual and sophisticated. Deep undulations and a crisp side parting imparted retro glamour, while mussed ends and a loose beachy ponytail kept it modern and easy. Get this combination of grunge and elegance in a few simple steps. –– Laura Martin

As summer comes to a close we all want to hold on to a little bit of sunshine. Hand painted highlights in a slightly lighter shade than your base tone will give give your hair a sun-kissed glow that will last through autumn. Hair color trends for the upcoming season are surprisingly subtle. Instead of the pastel shades and vibrant jewel tones that have been in vogue for the last few seasons, we’re seeing softer, subdued hues. Popular shades include dusky warm tones, soft blondes, and subtle gradients of red, caramel, and brown. Adopt the season’s softer color palette in a few simple steps. –– Laura Martin
