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.

It’s nearly impossible to picture Gwen Stefani without her platinum strands, or imagine Alexa Chung without her tousled brown waves, or to think of Anna Wintour without her signature crisp bob. These details make them easy to identify and provide the illusion of consistency even if they wear a wide range of clothing styles and makeup looks. There’s something appealing about a person who can stick to a single hairstyle—or slight variations on a theme—for decades. But why are we drawn to this sort of regularity? Is it only because consistency is unusual that it is appealing, or does a signature look signify something else, perhaps self-knowledge, or acceptance? If nothing else, a signature look is a quiet rebellion against the constant shifting of fashion trends, a way of dictating your own rules of styling instead of feeling pressured to follow someone else’s. Do you have a signature style? How long have you worn it?

Long bangs have long been considered cool and sexy, but shorter bangs are more controversial. Bangs that hit above the brow open up the face, creating a more youthful appearance, which can be flatter but also sometimes reads as less sophisticated. However, I think short fringe is underrated; bad bangs are usually the result of poor execution. As Bella proves, short bangs can be just as appealing as long ones, they just have a different set of rules. Click the style notes to learn more about getting above the brows that are just as cute as Hadid’s. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

Unlike clothing and makeup, changes to your haircut or color are fairly permanent, which means that while you may be able to change other parts of your look fairly easily to fit your mood or activities, it’s trickier to have hair that looks tame by day and wild by night, but it can be achieved with the right placement. The secret is placing the daring undercut or vibrant color on the underside of the hair so that it hides in natural fall and gets exposed with more dramatic styling. Learn more about this trend in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
