Quoted in the February issue of Glamour Magazine, Jennifer Lawrence describes her personal style as the “power lesbian look.” They are not the words that come to mind at Style Noted Towers, but who are we to argue with The Law? Perhaps attempting to emphasize her point, the luscious leading lady turned out for her associated Glamour Mag photo-shoot wearing this sleek tough girl hairstyle, bellicose stance, and pout. We can’t promise you’ll look as butch as Jennifer, but you can steal the hairstyle in the notes.  Click for StyleNotes →

I know it’s just the beginning of the year, but I’m already sick of spending what seems like hours doing my hair.  Easy, quick, on-the-go styles are often difficult to come by so when I found an amazing, messy braid style that was super unique, I almost jumped for joy. You know I haven’t met a braid I didn’t like, so I can’t help but to get excited. This look says I did my hair, but I don’t take myself too seriously. Perfect for understated glamor and for the girl who just doesn’t have time. To learn how to create this amazing messy half braid, click through to the notes.  –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

The new year is here, bringing fresh ideas and inspirations like this bright, cheerful red. Fiesta is one of Pantone’s trend shades for spring 2016. The company calls it “strong and fiery” and says it provides a “stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of the this season’s palette.” I love the hue on the prohibition-style bob pictured above, another forecasted trend for the upcoming season. Click the style notes to get the formula for this exciting new hue. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

It’s hard to deny the allure of long luxurious locks. While I love the ease and playfulness of my shoulder-length style, I always feel a twinge of jealousy when I see a girls with a perfect waterfall mane tumbling to her waist. Is there anything more youthful, more feminine? I know from experience that growing my hair longer does not make it thicker or more voluminous, but my fantasy persists. What exactly is the appeal of long hair and why doesn’t it live up to our expectations? Click the notes to find out. — Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
