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 →

If you haven’t noticed, the ‘90s are trending hardcore. Chokers, bandannas, crop tops, and even a shirt around the waist is in. Inevitably, this means the ubiquitous ‘90s double buns are also in. Once favored by Emma Bunton aka Baby Spice circa 1997, the double topknots have been spotted on everyone from Cara Delevigne, who wore a fluffier version on her Suicide Squad press tour to Yara Shahidi, who wore super cute double knots, perfect for dealing with summer’s humidity. I’ve even seen Hailey Baldwin pair double buns with her bikini. So from fluffy to sleek, celebrities and street style stars are taking on this look, and so should you.

Every stylist has a unique aesthetic, but certain trends—like a crisp bob or a perfect bleach and tone—are pro favorites while others are despised by professional hairdressers. Some of these looks are almost always unflattering, others are good in theory but might only suit a certain type of face or are almost impossible to achieve if the hair is not in the appropriate condition. From a horrid crop to a groan-producing color, to a cringe-worthy style, click the notes to see which trends give hair pros nightmares. –– Laura Martin

I love undone and messy waves. They’re a great visual cue for telling the world “I’m the Parisian girlfriend of a rock star and I like to lounge along the Champs-Élysées, looking cool. If I can’t be bothered with that, see me by the beach as a laid back surfer chick.” Ah, The Life!  Perfectly imperfect bobs may make you think of the new global glitterati effortlessly sauntering towards their next ridiculously perfect Instagram photo but don’t be fooled, it takes work to look as easy-breezy as this.  So if you’re jonesing for the perfectly imperfect wave, click through to the notes to learn the steps it take to look so cool. –– Michelle Rotbart
