Taken from Lina Arrojo’s latest collection, Re-Aligned, this is a classic shape with a modern twist. “In fashion and beauty, we are always looking at what came before as inspiration for what comes next,” says Lina. “With Re-Aligned, I wanted to reignite my love of the classics, while offering a fashionable new collection. This style was made using ARROJO straightedge razor techniques, which means they naturally feature more texture and taper than any previous take on these looks.” Learn how to style a similar shape in the notes.

hair texture

Three years ago, for a period of six months, I cut meat and dairy out of my diet completely and it changed my hair texture in a major way. My once curly / wavy tendrils became limp and lost all of their bounce. For a while I didn’t understand why my hair texture changed so much, and after much discussion with my dermatologist I decided being a vegan was not for me….and almost a year later my natural texture returned. Sometimes, hair texture changes are just out of your control, yet some aren’t. Your hair can change from straight to wavy, or like mine, the other way around and then back again. It’s important to know what’s due to biology and what’s self induced. Click through to style notes to get the details. –– Michelle Rotbart

pin tucked styles

Part twist, part chignon, and part victory roll, this understated elegant look is the perfect blend of vintage and modern aesthetics. It’s just right for pairing with a billowy dress, oversized shades and strapy gold sandals. You could use it to dress up a pair of jeans for date night, or add some glam to vintage swimsuit.

ballerina slipper hair

Right now I’m into subtle pastels, shades that look natural at first, but have a fashionable glow, like the hint of pink or blue cast by a colored lightbulb. This ultra soft rosy shade is just such a hue, a soft cool blonde barely dusted with a hint of pink. The color reminds me of the barely pink shade of point shoes and dancer’s leotards. It’s graceful, flirty, and feminine. Click the style notes for the professional formulation. –– Laura Martin
