Cut by Corrinn Dinan, colored by Blaine Lewis, two talented stylists from ARROJO NYC this is a perfect on trend and easy to wear long hairstyle for girls about town. The long, side-parted layers give the hair lots of room to swing and move and create playful bouncy shapes and textures, while the dimensional chocolate and caramel highlights creates soft and shimmering effects with lots of brightness around the face frame.

Long ponytails have been seen everywhere this year. At the international catwalks, celebrity weddings, and of course all the Hollywood red carpet events. They are a gorgeous way to wear your hair in a more polished way without looking too overdone. Most of the stylish ponytails go to great lengths, so clip-in extensions offer a fast way to get the look. But don’t fret, even if you don’t have super long locks, all the ponytails this season are wearable and sexy. To see some of my favorite looks, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

met gala flowers

Ah the Met Gala, a celebrity gal’s chance to play dress up. This year gala’s theme “China: Through the Looking Glass” inspired bold lips, winged eyeliner, and hairstyles adorned with flowers. Chrissy Teigen and Selena Gomez added some Asian influence with exotic orchids. Diane Kruger and Georgia May Jagger chose sprays of smaller blooms to accent their looks. Blossoms of all sizes bring fresh beauty to spring hairstyles. Click the style notes for tips on getting the look. –– Laura Martin

breezy look

One of the most frustrating things about fashion is that there’s often a big gap between what you like and what looks good on you. I love cornrows and sleek wet-look styles and center parts, but these looks do not love me. I have a square jaw and a strong nose which do not pair well with boyish or severe styles. I can’t go too far the other way either. Put me in flouncy curls or a big poofy updo and I look like a drag queen. The most flattering hairstyles for strong features like mine are simple shapes with soft details like this breezy upswept ‘do. Learn to create it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
