Once a runway for jaw-dropping femininity and daring Hollywood looks, the red carpet is transforming into more of street-style spectacle, especially for hair.  Case in point, the 2017 SAG Awards.  Noticeably absent were the hair-sprayed tresses and the over-the-top up-dos seen many times before at red-carpet events.  This time, there was a new look in town: The undone, street-inspired natural and wavy textures that are already ruling 2017. Chrissy Teigen, Brie Larson and Natalie Portman were just a few of the stars rocking natural tresses in a pinned-up or down style with perfectly imperfect presentation.  See below for more of my favorite SAG hair looks. –– Brittany Weiner

Gigi Hadid may be the bigger social media star, but Bella Hadid is a darling of the glossies. In a surprising twist, this editorial from Vogue Paris – which highlights Dior’s Spring Collections – combines high fashions from the French label with an armor and swords fencing story. Perhaps someone was looking to score points in the influencer stakes? Bella’s beauty and the dreamy Dior designs create a captivating editorial but what catches our eye is the slicked back hairstyle. It reminds us of the power and the beauty of a sleek off the face look. It’s a great way to make cheekbones appear stronger and higher while adding drama to any look. There’s more inspirational photos from this collection after the drop.  Click for StyleNotes →

Cold and wind, rain and sleet and snow all contribute towards making this the most difficult season to care for tresses. The biggest problem was, is, and ever shall be frizz. The combination of blustering winds, dank days, and snowballs can leave hair incredibly dry and lacking moisture, so as soon as you try to style strands, they simply tuft together in a puffy frizz ball. How matronly! But it doesn’t have to be that way. The right regimen makes styling easier. For tips for your best ever season of winter hair care, click style notes.
