A rainy Saturday inspires me to be Carrie’d away watching reruns of Sex and the City. The show’s protagonist, Carrie Bradshaw, is known for desirable things: Mr. Big, the Fendi Baguette bag, a closet full of Jimmy Choo’s. But for me it’s her beautifully textured hair that gives Carrie her signature look. While re-watching the show, I was struck by the sexy, voluminous waves she rocked whenever she was feeling powerful and put together. Yet they are easy to create if you know how, which gave me the idea of taking her look from Reel to Real. For confidence-building and glamor waves like Carrie, click through to style notes for tips and tricks. –– Michelle Rotbart

Ombre seemed a passing fad two years ago, yet it has proven to be a modern classic. It’s here to stay. It will, however, evolve each season, absorbing influences from the runways and the streets to offer a surprising variety of looks. Ombre works by gradually transitioning colors from one shade to the next, providing seamless ways to incorporate different hues into one style. But even before gentle transitions entered the color market, highlights were changing. As Bubba Clinton searched for new uses for big cigars, as Carrie Bradshaw enjoyed Sex In The City, dark roots went from embarrassment to statement. This season, Carrie is back, and so are her roots. Now in revival mode, today’s dark roots make hair look thicker and shinier, provide depth, and give a grungy edge to soft styles. To keep it fashionable instead of unkept, the transition from light to dark should be soft and blended; harsh lines look dated.
