bun

I love a good just-throw-it-up bun––you know, the one you’re wearing on the weekends or at the end of the day when your hair is just bothering you. However, there are the times where you’d like to wear a style that’s a bit more polished, like to an art gallery opening or next Thursday’s cocktail date. Of course this style also needs to be just as easy as it is polished. Luckily, the two can actually go together, and I have the secret technique.

marble

The word “marble” comes from the Greek verb Marmairo which means, to flash, sparkle or gleam. Marble is highly valued for its rich layers of color and reflective, lustrous surface. You can give your hair the same luxuriant quality by pulling delicate veins of contrasting hues through a neutral base shade, creating a rich, twinkling effect. Learn to create marbled hair color in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Following classic styles that are ever so slightly amended to fit new trends can keep you feeling more relaxed and always looking appropriate. Click the notes for more. –– Kelly Rowe
