Citing fashionable models like Karlie Kloss and Josephine Skriver (image above), Vogue recently published an article noting that “The Big Bang Is Back’ and “the supermodel set is settling the debate in favor of an eyelash-grazing length.” Want to join them? It is possible to grow out a fringe without wearing hair pinned back for six months. The key is to embrace some interim steps, reshaping your bangs instead of just letting them go wild.

When people are growing their hair out from a pixie cut they usually hate the first few months while they wait for the length of the sides and top to catch up with the back, but this is also the time when they’ll get the most complements. As the front grows, if you continue to cut the back length (which will otherwise turn into a mullet) the result is a crisp bob-like line in the nape with piecey sides, a long bang, and lots of texture. Its fun, feminine, and carefree. But you don’t have to go pixie-short first to achieve this look, learn more in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

The 2016 Cannes Film Festival started last week in the French Riviera, marking the beginning of more than a week’s worth of fabulous parties and film premieres. So unlike other industry events, where we only get to see a few hours worth of prettiness, at Cannes we get a full 11 days. The red carpet at this event is always glamorous, but it’s not the gowns that deserve the most attention. Celebrities and it girls bring their best in beauty, amping up their hair and makeup. Thus far, I’ve loved Gaia Weiss’s faux-hawk braid and Susan Sarandon’s wavy bob. To see more of my favorite looks, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →

You probably know there is some sort of correlation between your hair color and your skin tone, but there’s a common misconception that your skin and hair should match, or at least fall in the same tonal family (warm with warm, cool with cool). Not true! Matching your hair to your skin makes you look washed out or sickly. Don’t do it! Instead, you need to go for the opposite tone. Do that and you’ll have lots of options. Just take a look at Rihanna. Her warm skin glows when she wears cool red and browns, but looks weirdly orange when she pairs it with copper and gold shades. How do you know which skin tone you have? What if you’re neutral? Just click through to the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Bobby pins are so useful, so functional, that it’s easy to forget that they can also be attractive. There’s something clean and beautiful about the small, unobtrusive accessory. You can use it to pin back unruly bangs, to keep hair out of your eyes when wearing a dramatic side part, or to pull one side up and back. However you chose to wear it, the humble bobby pin works just as well on the surface of things as it does buried in the depths of your favorite updo. Learn how to let it shine in the style notes. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →
