Just when we though Karlie’s hair couldn’t get any better she decided to go blonde. According to Allure, the soft, golden hue is the first color she’s ever dyed her hair. The soft shade looks great with her blue eyes. The blonde is painted into her strands in thin pieces, with some of her natural tone peaking through for easy grow-out. We love her new shade.

This look combines three of-the-moment trends—platinum blonde, combed-out curls, bobbed length—into a softly alluring look, ethereal, yet tantalizing. The combination of light color and coils feel child-like and angelic, while the coolness of the blonde and the tousled texture add a touch of sultriness.

Cut and styled by Corrinn Dinan for ARROJO Expo Atlanta, a recent hair show, this street tough pixie cut blends asymmetrical shape, disconnection, and choppy texture with a multidimensional peach-toned hue that nods to the current trend for bubblegum-inspired hair color. Short styles bring out the features of the face and broken up side-swept bangs filter beautifully into the eyes; it’s a fun, flirty, and youthful way to wear the hair. As well as the image, Corrinn also sent us her styling steps, which are great for anyone looking to add texture to a short shape. Get the scoop after the jump…

affluenza

Sometimes, when we least expect it, a cool new look pops up. A hairstyle that feels new and fresh, and gets us so excited we’ll drop everything just to try it out. And that’s exactly how we felt when we saw actress Nicola Peltz at the premiere of Affluenza last week. On one side it’s a sixties siren-inspired half up-do; on the other it’s gorgeous and voluminous waves, with just a tickle of backcombing–– a vintage form if ever there was. Care to try this style on?
