Jasmine Sanders, the American supermodel commonly referred to as the Golden Barbie-her social media name, has appeared in top publications such as Vogue, Esquire, and GQ is now the cover star of InStyle.
Gigi Hadid may be the bigger social media star, but Bella Hadid is a darling of the glossies. In a surprising twist, this editorial from Vogue Paris – which highlights Dior’s Spring Collections – combines high fashions from the French label with an armor and swords fencing story. Perhaps someone was looking to score points in the influencer stakes? Bella’s beauty and the dreamy Dior designs create a captivating editorial but what catches our eye is the slicked back hairstyle. It reminds us of the power and the beauty of a sleek off the face look. It’s a great way to make cheekbones appear stronger and higher while adding drama to any look. There’s more inspirational photos from this collection after the drop. Click for StyleNotes →
After seasons and seasons of washing our hair as little as possible, it maybe time to make the switch from unwashed lengths, or at least look like it. Since this summer is all about sleek and wet hair looks that last way beyond the shower, it’s time to rock a look that looks like you just combed it back after a quick dip in the water. I’ve seen everyone from cool girls like Joan Smalls walk the red carpet wearing this look to girls on the runway at Calvin Klein and Dior strut down the runway wearing wet lengths. But you don’t have to be a celebrity or at fashion week to wear this style. It translates into everyday quite easily, becoming a more softer and cleaner approach that just boarders on the wet look.

The Paris couture shows are currently underway, and there is some seriously great hair. On one end there are twists and updos via Chanel and Dior, and on the other, to-die-for voluminous waves at Julien Fournie. The large barrel curls at this show embodied everything ‘70s glamour and for me were the real stars of the catwalk. I also loved the continued idea of tiaras at Elie Saab and the golden metal serpents slithering through the models tendrils at Valentino. Plenty of inspiration to last all season! So while some may think that couture is out-dated and has no place for the modern world…they haven’t seen this season’s collection or the don’t know great hair. If you’re ready to find your next ‘do, click through to the notes to see some of my favorite styles from the Paris couture shows. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
