headband

I love headbands. They’re easily the most functional hair accessory. They’re ideal for when your fringe is in that annoying transitional stage, when you’re applying your makeup, working out, or simply adding a decorative piece to your outfit. However, sometimes even our trusty favorites don’t always want to stay in place and end up sliding down towards our ponytails or over our eyes. But no need to stop wearing them, I have a few tips and tricks on keeping your headband where it belongs. Click through to style notes to get the details. –– Michelle Rotbart

natural texture

“Natural” wavy texture is all the rage, but there’s only a small percentage of the population that gets perfect beachy undulations from air drying alone. For the rest of us, “natural” texture is achieved through products, braids, diffusers, and curling wands. But the looks paired with Hilfiger’s Fall 2015 collection actually feel natural. These styles are mostly straight, accented with cowlicks and lightly flicked ends. And it looks fabulous. Make the most of your own natural texture; learn how in the notes. –– Laura Martin

naked highlights

Warm weather means bare skin: less clothing, softer makeup, and highlights that match your skin. Nude accents against a dark blonde backdrop gives hair a breezy, lightweight feeling. The flesh-toned brightness illuminates skin with glowing radiance. Learn to create skin-enhancing highlights in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
