Tidings! The Holiday Season brings parties, socializing, awkward relatives, and lots and lots of things to drink, like hot toddy’s, spiked eggnog and mulled wine. If you’ve ever drank way too much, you’ll  know that alongside the headache, the shakes and the fear, symptoms also include the skin feeling deflated and dry. You may not notice it much with all the other aches and pains but alcohol’s proclivity for creating dryness extends to your hair, leaving it brittle. Hair needs constant nourishment and your follicles rely on zinc and folic acid to maintain strength. Alcohol can affect these nutrient levels, which can even cause loss and breakage. Obviously the best solution to keep hair healthy is to drink in moderation, but since that’s not a choice many make over the Holidays, pick up a few other healthy hair habits instead. Get details below.  Click for StyleNotes →

Vogue recently called out the twisty towel as the hair accessory of the moment, as they caught many celebrities on Instagram snapping posts with their tendrils wrapped in fluffy towels post swim or après-shower. Far be it from me to judge Vogue on what’s in style, but I doubt we’ll be catching any it-gals strolling down 5th Ave with their hair wrapped in a bath towel. What is important to note however, is the type of towel you should be using to dry your tendrils. For your hair’s sake, it’s important to use one that cuts your drying time and doesn’t cause frizz or dents. To get you started, I’ve put together a list of what options you should be using for great hair.  To give these towels a twirl, click through to the notes.  –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

You probably know that some haircuts flatter your face while others don’t pair well with your specific features, but what’s less obvious is why a certain cut works. The shape of your hair, like the shape of your clothing, creates a visual illusion. Your cut adds width or elongates, sharpens or softens. It can also draw attention to—or minimize—specific features, like your cheekbones. Click the notes to find out how your hair can give your bone structure a boost. –– Laura Martin

The one thing I miss most about university is spring break. The time of year when you can swap out test and projects for friends, parties, and better yet, the beach. It also means that warmer weather is almost here and summer is on the far horizon. For those of you traveling down the coast or just enjoying stay-cation have fun! But don’t forget your spring break beauty essentials. Just because you’re taking a break from school doesn’t mean you get to take a break from great hair.
