Lazy girls, we have another one for you! The loose ponytail trend we saw on the runway is still hot and even the top models are still rocking it. This past week Karolina Kurkova attended an Art Basel party in Miami showcasing a version of a low ponytail created by her stylist Bryce Scarlett. It’s very similar to the one we loved from the Valentino couture show and super easy to emulate. Click through to style notes to learn how to do this look. –– Michelle Rotbart

In the past, volume was used to increase visual density. Hair styled with round brushes and mousse looked thicker and more substantial. But the volume that’s popular today isn’t stiff or heavy. Created with textured shapes, weightless products like dry shampoo, and gentle backbrushing, the latest take on volume is airy and loose, making hair look soft and weightless. Learn to create cloud-like volume in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” — Franz Kafka. No matter what age you are, feeling beautiful is important. Over the fifteen years I’ve spent in the beauty industry I’ve heard all kinds of strange ideas about how to look younger, many of them contradictory. The truth is, looking younger is about softness. It’s about recapturing an easy-going spirit, adding some playfulness, and allowing for versatility. How does this translate to hair? Find out in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
