Glamour

Are you a bottle blonde who cries at the sight of outgrown roots? You are in luck because there is a new less maintenance trend in town— rooted blonde.

Its true blonde has been the top trend for the past year and while it is still trending (and probably will be for a while), this little tweak can keep your hair and your wallet looking pristine.

When I became a hairdresser fifteen years ago roots, frizz, and flyaways were all dirty words. In the early 2000s hair was sleek and straight. It was piecey and sometimes even greasy, but never unkempt. But in recent years frizz has come back in vogue. Fluffy texture has previously been popular in decades that celebrated glamour: the 30s, 40s, and 80s. The current fashion climate is more subdued than the 80s and less glitzy than the 30s, but there is a leaning towards luxury, a blend of the glittering and the comfortable. Frizzy hair can play up both bohemian and glitzy aesthetics. The key is knowing what textures and styles work well with a bit of flyaway fuzz. Learn the rules in the notes.  –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

80s cover

The eighties are working their way back into the world of fashion, especially in hair and makeup. Orange lipstick, blue eyeshadow, and intentional frizz are just a few of the re-emerging trends. The latest incarnation of these looks is more streamlined than the originals while maintaining the glamour and playfulness than defined eighties style. When it comes to hair the eighties gave us wet-look texture, tousled curls, big volume, and side-swept parts. Click the notes for eighties inspiration and tips on contemporary adaptation. –– Laura Martin

carey mulligan met gala

I had the special opportunity to attend a preview of China: Through the Looking Glass, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute yesterday. With its 140-plus-piece collection of ready-to-wear, haute couture, traditional Chinese arts and textiles, and films on display, the exhibition is truly spectacular. Paralleling the glamor of the exhibit was the celebrity crowd on the red carpet leading up to The Met Gala last night. It’s great to see true beauty on the red carpet––we certainly need to celebrate something. There were lots of great styles on the scene, everything from polished updos to flowing locks, and even some crazy headware ( I’m talking about you Sarah Jessica Parker). To see some of the best styles of the night, click through to style notes.  –– Michelle Rotbart
