Cool weather means it’s time for cute accessories: scarves, gloves, and hats. Sure you can wear a wide-brimmed straw hat in the summer, but it’s a tough statement to pull off anywhere other than the beach. Winter hats are infinitely more wearable and this season has so many great ones. Fedora’s in a variety of muted tones add a structured touch to casual ensembles. Berets give us American gals a touch of Parisian chic. Floppy felt numbers make us feel both cozy and glamorous. Learn more about this season’s best toppers in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Cool weather and minty freshness go together beautifully. A sweet pastel green is just the thing to get you in the mood for cold weather, and provides a delicate counterpoint to the dark muted tones of the season. The looks show here feature the hue as a base, but it’s lovely as an accent tone too and pairs beautifully with shades ranging from icy white to deep chocolate. Click the style notes for the professional formulation and tips on achieving a perfect result. –Laura Martin

Aziza CuttingGetting a great haircut can change everything for you. Without cutting a lot of length, you can reshape the style so it lays nicer, styles easier, and looks better. A great hair cut takes a minimal amount of time to blowdry because it easily falls into the shape it was cut in to. While haircuts can be scary for a lot of us, simple cutting techniques can result in the hair actually appearing longer, all from a few layers and cutting frizzy translucent ends off. Click the notes to see a razor long layer in action and the before and after. –– Kelly Rowe
