Nonchalant waves are the staple of summer hair, but this fall, hair is starting to pick sides: specifically between sleek straight or joyfully curly. Seen on the streets of Milan last week during the Spring 2016 collections, the clear divide is being dictated by sartorial choice. Those with natural kinks and curls are going for bright and graphic wardrobes, sporting colorful prints while the straight-haired group is streamlining their looks with feminine pieces in neutral palettes. Regardless of weather or natural inclinations of your hair, you’re free too rock whichever look you choose with the help of some waves mist or a smoothing iron. Which will you choose? Click through to styles to see some of the best looks. –– Michelle Rotbart
