Our favorite hairstyles are chic, unexpected and best yet if they’re super easy to master The looped buns tied with a blue strip of leather we saw at the Reed Krakoff spring show were definite contenders for our favorite looks for the season. We love them for their playful take on sophistication and wearability. We’re already running to the fabric store to stock up on leather strips in every color. Care to try this cool and season-less look on? Click through to style notes. –Michelle Rotbart

If you have a round face you may think that bobs are off limits, but the classic shape can work with the right details. Round faces, or faces that are wider than they are long, can be challenging to flatter. Many popular styles add width at the sides of the face, exaggerating the proportions of this face shape in an unflattering way. Even adding height at the top isn’t a simple solution; it can make the head look triangular instead of balancing width. What works better are clean vertical lines and soft diagonals which elongate and soften. Waves, deep side parts and asymmetric lengths are great options.

There’s a lot to love about sixties style: fun prints, bold makeup and big hair are fun fashion statements that blend glamour and levity. Extreme proportions, wooly texture, and soft face framing pieces bring this retro style up to date. Try it on for a special night out or use it to add some playfulness to your daytime ensembles. It’s easy to create, learn how in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
