Leave your broken pins and stretched out scrunchies at home. Spring 2016 was the season of some serious statement hair accessories, from the tiaras at Saint Laurent to the retro headbands at Dolce & Gabbana. Well-placed ribbons at Oscar De La Renta channeled a lady-like vibe and could have easily complemented the Victorian trend see at Alexander McQueen and Givenchy. Even the little barrettes at Marc Jacobs, paired with lived-in 1940s styles, proved that the tiniest detail can bring a whole look together. So if you want to dive hair first into this trend, opt for a hair tie with a textured accent or an embellished leather headband. This season there is no excuse to neglect your head.

Singer Ciara isn’t the first person I used to think of when it came to great style, but over the last year the 29-year-old new mom has seriously upgraded her look. From fashion deals and well-styled red carpet appearances to being a muse to Ricacardo Tisci for Givenchy, Ciara is now a fashion insider. The singer/muse is known to have fun with her hair, so when she was spotted on the red carpet at the American Music Awards with a modern updo, everyone took notice. The hair was fashioned into a clean and slick low bun with a middle part. The face-framing tendrils made the look, with the needed detail complementing her intricately beaded gown all while giving a lived-in appeal to the outfit. Bravo Ciara! I’ll definitely be watching you now. To see some my favorite looks from this style star, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →


Fashion month is finally over and it’ll be another six months until all the fabulous outfits we saw on the runway hit the stores (and another six days until we see variations in the windows at Zara). But if you can’t wait to try on a new catwalk trend, I recommend starting off with a favorite you already know and love––braids. We saw braided “headphones” at Chanel, loopy braids at Givenchy, goth braids at Giles, and that was just for starters. If you want to get on board, read this essential braiding guide for making better twines at home and click through to the notes to see my favorite plaits from the catwalks of the world.  –– Michelle Rotbart

Givenchy’s presentation in Paris for Fall 2013 was one of the most talked about shows of the season, but the bold prints and leather embellishments of the clothing paled in comparison to the remarkable hairstyles created by Luigi Murenu. Neat rows of pin curls shellacked with a coating of spray on color in vivid tones made a head-hugging shape that looks like a vintage swim cap made of roses. The combination of classic wet styling with contemporary neon colors is a perfect combination of the old and the new. Heat-free styling is a great way to get strong, long-lasting shape without damage. Finger-waves, rollers and pin-curls will give you a retro finish and keep your strands healthy.
