Everyone is running to get their hair cut into a bob or sexy crop, but if you are a girl who loves to keep it long this is the IT cut you need. It can be hard to look ahead of the trends with long hair because inevitably everyone’s long hair starts looking alike even when you change up the color. This style will make you a show-stopper wherever you go. Click the notes for the details. –– Kelly Rowe

The perfect bun is a powerful thing––just recall all the great man buns posted last week. Ergo, whenever you see a great bun, whether a ballerina or a chic and low chignon, you take notice. So when I spotted Margot Robbie’s very cool half-bun at the premier of Z for Zachariah during this year’s Sundance Film Festival, I knew I’d found a winner. This bun is perfectly imperfect and it gave me a strong urge to swear off boring bedhead for good. . . .at least until next week. For a look like Margot’s, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

There is something lovely about a hairstyle that feels precarious, as if it could tumble at any moment. Like bedhead texture, loosely pinned updos lend an air of nonchalance. Pair this style with a simple blouse, minimal makeup and a great pair of heels for devil-may-care sexiness. Click the style notes for tips and product recommendations. –– Laura Martin

Back in season 1 of HBO’s Girls, Shoshanna’s style, and especially her hair, were bold in a way that felt a little too trendy. She looked like the sort of girl who spends a lot of time watching how-to videos on youtube and buys a new wardrobe every season. But in the first few episodes of season four, it’s clear that her style has evolved. Her trendy clothes are showing some vintage influence, and she’s made some bold, but chic hairstyle choices. I love her oversized barrettes and bobby pinned waves. Learn to create these looks in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
