Second only to braids, messy buns are one of my favorite quick and easy on-the-go styles. It’s perfect for lazy days and still manages to look flirty and carefree. That being said, not all buns are crated equal. Think more Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner messy chignon on an off-duty day rather than post-gym sweaty blob. To nail the style with minimal effort, simply spray in refinish through tendrils and throw it up, while still letting some pieces fall as they desire. If you really want to be daring slide in a clip or hair comb. So if you can’t be bothered to wake up early or pull out your heat tools, click through to the notes and see how you can wear a bun all summer long. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

If quintessential autumn, off-duty New York style is a combination of heavy knits and windblown hair, then the look for spring is definitely a combination of leather motorcycle jackets and laid-back tresses. Seriously, take a look around, who isn’t rocking a cool leather jacket? This could also be an it look, since so many celebrity couples and cool single gals also don this laissez-faire style. Just take a peak at Dakota Johnson and boyfriend Matthew Hitt matching looks or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Balenciaga and bun. Based on this week’s meh weather forecast, I think you’ll still have plenty of time to wear this great downtown look.

I love bangs and I’m always happy when the thick ones are on trend. But as a long-time bang lover, I know this particular style comes with some challenges, especially when it comes to wearing your hair up. A blunt fringe negates the possibility of wispy edges or face framing tendrils. The strong line of a full bang can give the right updos a cool, contemporary edge, but on the wrong look it can feel blocky and awkward. Click the notes to find out which styles pair best with a strong fringe. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Sometimes looking chic doesn’t have to mean lots of effort. Case in point: this simple 2-minute updo. A center part and messy low loop create an elegant silhouette that’s easy to customize. Wear it in the daytime with a few loose bits tucked behind the ears or dress it up for evening by creating a wider shape at the neck and adding some shine. However you wear it, you’re sure to look stylish and effortless. Click the notes for step-by-step instructions. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
