Summer5

 

We like our rough and tumble on Style Noted so we were delighted to receive “SUMMER,” a collection that embodies the sexy spirit of tousled, windswept hairstyles. Sent in by Corrinn Dinan, stylist at ARROJO NYC, the images reflect a summer’s day in the life of a cool city girl, with the hair going from beachy to romantic as the model works it from morning till night. As well as the images, Corrinn also sent us styling tips that offer a great insight to changing up mid-length and long locks. See all nine images and get her pro styling tips in the Style Notes.

Fashion is a fickle mistress. As a German glamazon once said, “one day you’re in, the next day you’re out.” So after one designer pronounced the blow out dead, another revived it––and it’s bombshell amazing. Diane Von Furstenberg, the princess of modern fashion, opened her Spring 2015 ready-to-wear show with a nod to the French Rivera and consequentially Bridget Bardot. Models, most notably Anna Ewers, looked very Bardot-esque in gingham baby-doll dresses and French-inspired pouts. We’re super excited about the look because we love anything sexy and glamorous. And hey, change is good, even if we decided we were over blow-outs just yesterday. Care to try this look on? Click through to style notes to get the details. –– Michelle Rotbart

You can look years younger simply by changing your hairstyle. The styles shown here will make you look softer and more youthful. But, if you have a young face or find yourself in a position where you want to seem more mature you should avoid them (yesterday’s post on styles that help you look older may be more helpful). Whether you want to visibly reduce your age or avoid young looking styles, click the style notes to learn more. –– Laura Martin

Platinum blonde has been the reigning pale shade for the past few seasons and will continue to be popular for the fall, but ultra-pale hair doesn’t work for everyone. For those who prefer a softer take on blonde this trending shade provides a stylish alternative to stark white, while still providing a fashion-forward cool tone. The silvery quality of the color lends it a delicate tarnished quality, like a fine antique. Click the style notes to get the formula for this understated shade. –– Laura Martin
