As the summer is creeping to a close, many of us are planning a weekend or even a week getaways to finish it off in style. So whether you are going away to the Hamptons or Hawaii, packing your beauty regime is an absolute must! I know you already have all of the right stylers and cosmetics, but do you have the right bag? It’s important that it’s durable, functional, and stylish (so that it can double as a clutch). Just remember, it’s a holiday, go with a leaner approach and only bring your most sacred essentials, not your whole vanity.

There’s no one haircut that is low-maintenance for everyone. An easy, wash-and-go style depends on your particular hair type and texture. Medium density wavy hair cut into a long bob will look great with little more than a casual tousle, while the same cut on thick coarse hair will require serious styling to look polished. So what are the easiest, low-maintenance shapes for your hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

If you haven’t noticed, the ‘90s are trending hardcore. Chokers, bandannas, crop tops, and even a shirt around the waist is in. Inevitably, this means the ubiquitous ‘90s double buns are also in. Once favored by Emma Bunton aka Baby Spice circa 1997, the double topknots have been spotted on everyone from Cara Delevigne, who wore a fluffier version on her Suicide Squad press tour to Yara Shahidi, who wore super cute double knots, perfect for dealing with summer’s humidity. I’ve even seen Hailey Baldwin pair double buns with her bikini. So from fluffy to sleek, celebrities and street style stars are taking on this look, and so should you.
