Hooray for Sunday morning beauty routines! They should involve little more than sleeping in, rolling out of bed and getting your hair up and out of the way so you can enjoy brunch and a spa day. There’s seriously nothing more reliable and chic than a great textured bun, for Sunday mornings or even holiday parties. I see them on street style stars all the time and they can be worn in a casual or even polished way. And since the holiday vortex is just about to kick off, you need a great and easy look to keep in your last minute cocktail party or meet-the-parents brunch beauty arsenal. To learn how to get a great textured knot, click through to the notes. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

I love sleeping, in fact naps are one of my favorite past times. But they have one serious downside: they always mess up my hair. I spread my tresses carefully over the top of my pillow case but I still wake up finding I’ve rolled to one side and destroyed the “bedhead” texture I crafted that morning with wave mist, volume foam, and a diffuser. I’ve tried the whole wash my hair, go to sleep on a silk pillow, and pray for sexy bedhead routine, but I usually wake up with a wild mess, flat on one side, flipped out on the other. Is it possible to sleep on wet strands and wake up with gorgeous hair? Get my take in the style notes. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →
