hair close to face

Curtain bangs, finger waves, and deep side partings all have one thing in common: they bring hair onto the face, creating a close frame around the features. Hair worn against the skin creates a feeling of intimacy and sensuality. Create contouring, softness or emphasis with styles that turn your mane into decorative trim.

The latest incarnation of these looks is more streamlined than the originals while maintaining the glamour and playfulness than defined eighties style.

fendi coverThe Fashion Kaiser has done it again. Karl Lagerfeld showed his first ever haute couture collection for Fendi and it wasn’t just the extravagance of the chinchilla, sable, and mink hair that had me enamored. The hair on the actual catwalkers caused a beauty stir. Locks were styled with a deep side-part and pinned back to frame the face with a wavy. The length was then secured with a low pony in the back, giving the illusion of shorter locks. In a runway-world of rumpled and meh hair, it’s exciting to see a return to such elegance. You may recall Marc Jacobs went for a similar proper lady look for the fall collections. My trend alert sense are certainly buzzing.

ponytail

Ponytails can be a hairstyle, but often they’re more of an un-style. Ponytails happen when we’re going to the gym, or get tousled about by the wind, or are bent over a book. And it’s reasonable that sometimes we just need to get our hair out of the way. But what about when you want that other kind of ponytail, the one that’s actually a style? How do you transform throw-it-up to wear-it out? Click the style notes to find out. –– Laura Martin
