Epitomizing the shabby chic, bohemian trend hair braids will remain fashionable throughout the autumn-winter season. They’re great for weekends too, as there is no need to shampoo and condition because a bit of grit actually helps bind twines together. One of our favorites is the crown of braids. This style holds a primitive, medieval appeal, yet it’s also fearlessly modern, hip, and cool.  Want to channel your inner Quinevere this weekend?

Kylie’s giving us that Friday feeling! The Australian princess of pop emerged from down under to star in GQ Germany’s December issue and, my, doesn’t she look good.  A series of contrasting images show her two sides –– demure and diva –– but it is the sixties feel, inspired by vintage lingerie and teased tresses that helps Kylie’s fiery animal magnetism emerge from every image.

This week, Taylor Swift stormed the Victoria’s Secret Red Carpet with a pretty floral dress, perfect pout, silky straight strands and her signature full bangs. Her cheeky, knowing grin tells us that she knows she looks good. While we can’t get you her Zuhair Murad attire (or loamy legs), we can help you recreate her beautiful, glossy and sleek tresses. Anyone with long layers and a bang section can create a similar look with some product, a blowdryer and a brush. To learn how, click style notes.
