Center-parted bangs are top-notch for transitioning from a straight heavy fringe to a side sweep, growing out a short bang, or low maintenance, face-framing options. The middle split and slightly imperfect finish lend a devil-may-care boho vibe to this brow-dusting accent. A fringe can perform many practical functions too, like disguising prominent foreheads and highlighting cheekbones, but many women avoid them for fear of maintenance and styling challenges. The tousled finish of this bang requires little effort and the parting pushes hair to the sides for long-lasting shape that is easy to grow out.

If you haven’t noticed, the ‘90s are trending hardcore. Chokers, bandannas, crop tops, and even a shirt around the waist is in. Inevitably, this means the ubiquitous ‘90s double buns are also in. Once favored by Emma Bunton aka Baby Spice circa 1997, the double topknots have been spotted on everyone from Cara Delevigne, who wore a fluffier version on her Suicide Squad press tour to Yara Shahidi, who wore super cute double knots, perfect for dealing with summer’s humidity. I’ve even seen Hailey Baldwin pair double buns with her bikini. So from fluffy to sleek, celebrities and street style stars are taking on this look, and so should you.

Every era has it’s iconic beauties, people who emulate or evolve the look of their time. Sometimes these people are classical beauties, but more often they are striking examples of the period’s particular aesthetic or representations of a new aesthetic direction. Most fashion icons are striking rather than pretty, at least in the past. Maybe I’m just being nostalgic, but I find more inspiration in the trendsetters of bygone eras than current stars. Click the notes to learn about some of my favorite unique and inspiring fashion leaders. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Earlier this week the 2016 Tony Awards brought together the stars of the Broadway and fashionable theatergoers to celebrate a great year of performances. Equally as great was the lineup of beauty looks that were seen on the red carpet leading into the event. I loved Jourdan Dunn and Lucy Liu’s ethereal looks, both sporting romantic flowing hair and nude lips.  On the opposite end of the fabulous and strong women spectrum, Michelle Williams and Tavi Gevinson showed off messier versions of cropped cuts and colorful pouts. Looks like anything goes at this show! Click through to the notes to see some of my favorite looks.  –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
