While there were many hair dos at New York Fashion Week, one particular stuck out—the double knot. Variations were seen at Marchesa, Derek Lam, and Nicholas K where they were unmistakably natural, windswept and full of strong attitude. I like them because they’re easy to recreate, and you’ll love them because they’re a messy bun with a cool new edge. And you don’t even have to wait until next season to rock this look, click through to style notes to learn how to emulate it now. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

Hair accessories were all the rage in Milan and Paris for Spring ’15. New York has followed suit. Many of this season’s shows are featuring the trend. From shiny metallic bands at Honor to artsy clips at Suno, hair embellishment was everything. Click notes for more hair trend insights from NYFW. –– Michelle Rotbart

Derek Lam and love a cool girl. For his Spring 2015 Ready-To-Wear show, Derek’s models eschewed the polished pretense of the ladies of Madison and 5th Avenues in favor of fashion and beauty looks, not overtly glam nor pretty, but definitely strong and cool and beautifully tough, like what a Lower East Sider might wear to the bar or the club. We adore the natural un-fussiness of the hairstyles, which are born out of the designer’s belief that the blow-out is dead. We’re not sure that’s true, but we can certainly take inspiration from his collection to create some gorgeous natural styles.

We’ve sent our spies to NY Spring / Summer ’13 Fashion Week to get the inside scoop on the style and beauty landscape for the coming year. One of the first reports came from backstage of the show of the avant-garde designer, Derek Lam. The king of pretty, girly fabrics backed by crisp, clean silhouettes, this season his collection was all about texture –– a trend translated into the hairstyles, as personified by this behind the scenes snapshot of a textural beach wave.  Hairstylist, Orlando Pita, calls his coiffed creations “Bohemian Minimalism.” For an insight to getting your own stripped down ‘do, click style notes.  Click for StyleNotes →
