rustitc and regal

A little bit eighties, a little bit nordic, a little bit medieval fantasy, this ruggedly romantic hairstyle gives you a perfect blend of ethereal beauty and grunge. Combining volume with separation makes height feel windblown instead of constructed. Raked-out waves soften the edges and add femininity to the strong lines. Pair this style with strong browns and smudgy shadow for understated glamour that works with just about any ensemble. Click the style notes for step-by-step instructions. –– Laura Martin
