What a gorgeous, romantic style! If you are a regular visitor to our blog, you’ll know we’ve noted many similar looks –– center-parts; straight at the crown; dropping into a wavy or curly texture about halfway down the hair shaft. It is called the beach wave and it is the hot trend of summer twenty-twelve. This version is worth noting because the center-part is slightly off of center. This is a smart style choice as even the prettiest of the pretty can look a bit off kilter with the face split right down the middle. Everyone should try the drop down beach wave this spring / summer, but when you do, remember to place the part slightly off-center.

This shaggy, featherweight style is a fast, Style Noted favorite. Worn by Krystal, fashion blogger for This Time Tomorrow, it is a fine example of being stylish and chic with a low maintenance ‘do.  You can see how she has played into the natural wave in her hair with a loose, free-flowing shape, and added texture and movement. The length drapes around shoulders and chin, helping to slim down and frame the features. It’s a great look for her and styling it should only take a few minutes.
