What a difference beautiful texture makes! The pictured model went to ARROJO NYC and told color and texture specialist, Barton Miller, she was bored by her short straight hair, and wanted to try the trend for texture (which, by the way, continues to burgeon). Barton gave her an American Wave –– a new professional permanent texture service ––  to create a resilient, full curl pattern with lots of expansion, and natural-looking tousle and flow. The difference is striking, and shows the power of the makeover. The natural volume strengthens her profile, helps her look sexy and feminine, while the style feels youthful and carefree.

Knots are an easy way to put hair up, and they lend an edgy, slightly sporty vibe to high styles. Solitary topknots were everywhere last season, but the latest take on the trend  is to use multiple ties to create knobby texture and low-volume, futuristic shapes. These styles are less formal than most updos, easy to create, and unfussy. This style will toughen up a pretty top, add some interest to a little black dress, or simply control an unruly mane.

These blushed tones are a great way to add some red dynamism to your hue, without giving up the blonde base. The muted warmth of soft, pastel peaches sparkles like a champagne cocktail, adding fizz and pop to any look. For anyone that wants to attain a similar shade, think about soft copper, dusky pink, vanilla blonde, as well as pastel peach –– anything pale, delicate, airy and light will maintain the ethereal, spring feeling.

A sun-dappled forest comes to mind when gazing at this beautiful mix of earth hues. Woodsy browns set off with points of brightness creates a look that is both eye-catching and natural. This effect is created by using neutral shades that sit on the border between warm and cool, which are achieved by combining complementary colors. Bronzed ash and golden khaki interweave through the gentle undulations and windswept texture. Minimal, metallic makeup sets off the look. Read on for tips and expert formulations that make the look achievable for you. –– Laura Martin
