By now the 70s have been emulated in fashion and beauty for longer than the decade actually spanned––and yet we keep wanting more. At the Coach Spring 2015 collection, the decade was very much alive with updates on flared silhouettes and furry pastel coats.

The coolest braid for fall is a tight and sleek, a small three-strand plait worn clean and neat. There are lots of ways you can wear this trend: pull all hair into a single plait, wear one as an accent, or add a few, evenly spaced, along the front hairline.

After a few years of beach waves and loose carefree styles, the texture trend is about to explode. Although a curling iron or wand can be a great tool, making it easy to create waves and curls as quick as a flash, there are some downsides: It’s a fairly temporary solution, lasting a day or two at the most; and the blistering heat of hot-tools can dry out and damage your locks, especially if you use them regularly.
