As the days are growing shorter an extra ten minutes in bed becomes the ultimate luxury. Of course that also means, less time to primp, so I’m always in need of a quick and simple trick to give me extra zzzs and still look posh. The answer came in the form of Miranda Kerr, who was spotted rocking a low-key yet very tasteful bun at the Louis Vuitton show. The model wore a slick low knot that requires little more than a great styler and a fine-tooth comb. So whether you’re starting with bedhead or a blowout, this look is an easy upgrade that’s elegant and shows off you’re lovely face.

Like every good stylist I make it my business to keep up with what’s going on in the industry. I get excited about new products and new techniques. I was thrilled when rainbow tresses started going mainstream. I was pumped about sand art hair and hand pressed-color. But about a month ago, new color trends started emerging every few days: opal, oil slick, colombré. Last week, when tie-dye hair was touted as the hottest new color trend by sources ranging from MTV to Marie Claire, I started feeling cynical. Does one viral Instagram tutorial really make something a trend? Do these new looks really represent new techniques or are they simply clever repackaging? Can any of them last? Get my take in the style notes. Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
