kate bosworth

I will always love a great braid, so when I saw Kate Bosworth’s hair at the SAG Foundation “The Art of More” event recently, I was in total awe and admiration. I’ve called out Kate a few times for her excellent choice in plaits, but this inside-outside braid is so beautiful that I want to wear it now!  Lucky for us, I have a great tutorial for this wonderful Grecian inspired braid.

comb over

Most of the information in Google’s 2015 Beauty Report is no surprise. Braids are still big. Purple, silver, and ash blonde are the most consistently searched colors. But, unexpectedly, men’s hair has become a very popular search, especially the man bun and the comb over. Yes, comb over. At first I thought this had something to do with Donald Trump running for public office, but it turns out that the term has been appropriated for vintage styles reminiscent of Don Draper. The latest variations pair a parted and slicked top with tightly barbered sides creating a hybrid of grooming and toughness. Learn more about the look in the notes. –– Laura Martin

copper rose

When freshly polished, copper takes on a slightly pink tinge that’s captured perfectly in this pretty hue. This color is a richer version of rose gold, offering the same blend of warmth and coolness but with a bit more depth. Try a single-process variation than blends the two tones, or a more vibrant version that uses placement to pair separate formulas. Learn about both techniques and get all the formulas in the notes. –– Laura Martin

long strong

As a huge hair mask fan I am always trying infuse together the perfect set of ingredients to create a mask that balances moisture and protein that helps your hair grow long and strong, soft and shiny. Finding this perfect mix can be tough, too much protein and your hair will get hard, too much moisture and your hair will be weighed down.
