If your headbands are packed away at the back of your closet with your pleated minis and Gossip Girl novels, it’s time to dig them out ladies! This hot season, I’ve spotted a number of cool gals on the street choosing intricate headband to top off their crowning glory and provide tendrils with a sleek finishing touch. Everyone from actresses to models off duty are pulling hair back with silk scarves or rocking a bejeweled wreath for a night out. This is an easy trend to follow and a definite do.

Contemporary bobs tend to come in two shapes, square—the same length all the way around—and A-line—Shorter in the back and slightly longer toward the face. But in the 1920s, when bobs first became the rage, most of them features a pointed or rounded nape,  with a triangular stacked section ate the back, tapered to follow the curvature of the head. At the time this shape was called a shingle cut, in contemporary terms it’s a graduated bob, a beautiful and technically challenging shape that’s overdue for a comeback. Learn why you should give this vintage shape a try in the notes. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →
