This is a chunkier, thicker version of the trendy braided headband. Disheveled, whimsical, the style exudes a fun and youthful vibe for girls about town. Braids are great for summer as they keep hair off the face, but forgo the formality of traditional updos. What makes this example special is the the windblown, rumpled feel created by the looseness and breadth of the braid. For similar beatnik elegance, pull out random pieces till you get a pleasingly carefree aesthetic. Click for StyleNotes →
Coco Rocha is the star of the new Balmain Hair Couture campaign. The Canadian model became the face –– and hair –– of the brand’s ‘Icons’ line. Lensed by An Le in NYC, the images reflect a big city girl on the go as Gotham stands in her wake. What we love is the transformation of hair color; normally a brunette, Coca became platinum blonde bombshell for this campaign as an illustration of the power of reinvention. If platinum blonde is a look you’ve always dreamed about, we say break your boundaries and go for it. But before you do, discover the five big things you should know about bleaching to blonde.

Fashion month is in full swing in New York City and I’m predicting there will be an assortment of changes in fashion and beauty. One thing that’s staying the same? Enviable, looks-complicated-but-isn’t hairstyles. I’ve seen braids and ponytails come and go and have loved most, but I’ve always held on to the knotted ponytail. It’s an easy update to the classic ponytail and requires no hot tools or braiding skills. A win all around. So even if you don’t know what will be in next season quite yet, this look transcends time.
