The obsession with perfectly imperfect, effortless waves is nothing new. Many of us are beach wave hair addicts and we admit it. But our schedules don’t always allow us to primp for four hours…and even if they did, we wouldn’t spend all that free time styling our tresses when we could be out with our besties. Good news for us wave addicts then. There’s a cool technique to get natural and sexy beach-inspired locks with hardly any effort. Mostly you just sleep. Click through to styles notes to get the details on the no-fuss technique for getting gorgeous slept-in beach waves. –– Michelle Rotbart

Like many updo styles the topknot is great if your mane is long, sleek and unaltered, but with shorter cuts, texture or layers, it’s virtually impossible. That’s why we love this clever triple knot; it’s as funky and as stylish as the original, but easier to control, and it works on a variety of lengths and shapes.

Asymmetry personalizes classic looks and flatters almost everyone. It works in bangs, bobs, and pixies. But sometimes it just looks off and it’s hard to tell why. The secret is something photographers call the rule of thirds. It has to do with the points of greatest visual impact and with creating proportions that don’t feel static. It’s interesting stuff, and it will make you see your hairstyle in a whole new way. Click the style notes to learn more. –– Laura Martin

We love to provide hairstyling ideas, especially when they’re by the people, for the people. Submitted by Corrinn Dinan, stylist at ARROJO NYC, this mid-length layer cut on a salon client shows off a beautiful blend of length, texture and movement, which makes it a great option for girls who prefer to keep their locks lengthy, but want something more street tough than classic lady-like looks. Called ‘Shatterbox’ this original ARROJO technique features a structured interior (so a strong shape is maintained) with a deconstructed outer surface (which creates the disheveled lived-in feel). Learn more about this cut, including how to adopt it, in the style notes.

side slick hair

It takes a certain level of panache to pull off a very classic, very traditional and very refined hairstyle. A slicked-to-the-side men’s hairdo may have you thinking of dashing charmers like Don Draper or Jay Gatsby but cool guys like David Beckham and Ryan Gosiling are also rocking this look. But no matter if you want to wear this style on the regular or save it for a special occasion, the point still stands: according to the stylish gents it’s a style that remains cool and on trend.
