At the recent American Music Awards Julianne Hough brought something unexpected to the red carpet: a zigzag part. Back in the nineties, the zigzag was a favorite of celebrities ranging from Jennifer Aniston to Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown. It’s been at least a decade since its made an appearance in Hollywood, but the reactions to Hough’s style was surprisingly positive. Hollywood Life called it “insanely cool” and Fresh News Online referred to the style as “seriously sleek.” Was the turban-like effect merely the perfect compliment to Hough’s exotic beaded gown, or are zigzag parts about to become a trend? Get me take in the style notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

The spawn of a Rock Star, and now a sartorial critic, who better to champion the spiky stud hair accessory trend than British tearaway, Kelly Osbourne. Over the past few seasons studs have invaded our bags and belts and boots, but now they’re heading for our crowning glories; we can thank Kelly for showing us what we were missing. Spotted on the red carpet of the American Music Awards, her signature lavender candy-coat was covered in rows of gold studs, which amble down the head shape parallel to twin French braids. The plaits come together in a bun in the back, and this braided bun features an artful decoration of even more spiky studs. An attention-grabbing look that signals a new wave of punk-inspired beauty trends, you can learn more about wearing this unusual accessory in the style notes.
