As the above collage shows, celebrities –– who once did anything to straighten their strands –– are now wearing waves and curls with pride. The texture trend has been simmering for a while, but it’ll be boiling over by summer. This creates a conundrum for straight-haired girls. Does one spend hours by the vanity mirror in search of fashionable waves or curls, or does one let the trend pass them by? Neither, because now there’s a new way. American Wave is a revolutionary, ionic permanent waving system that is gentle on hair, and creates a range of textured looks, from the loose movement and texture of beach waves to the beauty and grace of full-blown spirals and everything in-between.

Music festival season is upon us, and whether you are planning a trip to Ultra Music Festival in Miami, which starts this weekend, or any of the other upcoming festivals, prepare for great hair. Festivals are notoriously hot, crowded places where hairstyles can quickly become limp, lifeless, and messily frizzy due to high humidity and dancing room only. Going boho-chic-prepared makes all the difference, keeping you looking effortlessly cool. To steal the style of festival hair, click style notes.

Hand painted hair is a wonderful way to get an individual look. No two people look the same with this modern hair coloring technique as it is customized to the haircut, personality, and style of each person. It’s a great way to showcase a vibrant hue, like the splashes of scarlet in this style. The razor-cut layers help too. The razor keeps movement in the hair, allowing undulations between hand painted colors, while framing the face with playful softness. This look perfectly fits the archetype of the modern professional woman about town. Learn how to get a similar hairdo in the style notes.
