I love tousled waves as much as the next person, but you can only wear beachy texture for so long before you start craving something more structured. Blunt looks have a reputation for being uptight, but they can be just as whimsical as their textured counterparts. Lines cut into the surface of the hair or multilevel outlines make for crisp shapes that are anything but boring. Learn more about these trending looks in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Those of us who love fashion know that trends reflect a lot more than the whims of a particular designer. Fashion correlates with social change, the state of the economy, and political opinion. When we long for normalcy, as was the case following WWII, we wear our hair neat and orderly. When we’re ready for change we embrace something new, like the short bob haircuts that became popular in the 1920s. What we’re wearing says something about how we’re feeling. So what do the current hair trends reveal about how we feel as a nation? Click the style notes to find out. –– Laura Martin
