Out and about in LA, Victoria’s Secret “Angel” Chanel Iman posted a pic of this adorable ensemble. By keeping her hair up and away from the face, the style has the dramatic, cheekbone-lifting, shoulder-and-neck exposing appeal of an updo, while the braids from the front help the look retain the casual informality of contemporary beauty trends. Chanel looks angelic, but also fearlessly modern, hip, and cool. Steal her hairstyle in the notes.  Click for StyleNotes →



Quoted in the February issue of Glamour Magazine, Jennifer Lawrence describes her personal style as the “power lesbian look.” They are not the words that come to mind at Style Noted Towers, but who are we to argue with The Law? Perhaps attempting to emphasize her point, the luscious leading lady turned out for her associated Glamour Mag photo-shoot wearing this sleek tough girl hairstyle, bellicose stance, and pout. We can’t promise you’ll look as butch as Jennifer, but you can steal the hairstyle in the notes.  Click for StyleNotes →


When Vidal Sassoon cut Mia Farrow’s long locks into a cropped pixie cut for Roman Polanski’s psychological horror movie, Rosemary’s Baby, it became the most famous haircut in history. Filmed for the world to see, it changed the perception of femininity. The short style was a shocker. It ushered in a new era for fashion and beauty.

Before the 1960s, women were conditioned to wear their hair longer; it was ‘set’ for hours at the salon, and the style was kept day after day. Going short meant liberation from the fetters of set styles, and from the preconceived ideas of beauty. Suddenly women were wearing short hair, A-line dresses, military-inspired suits, and other aspects of mod-inspired androgyny. Not only was it fashionable, the look fitted the lifestyle of a new generation of women who wanted to go to work, and play hard –– which left little time for roller-setting at the salon.

Seeing  Mia, an alluring film star, lose all that length and expose her natural beauty  –– wide eyes, angular cheekbones, elegant petiteness –– inspired a new beauty consciousness. Hair and fashion became intrinsically linked. Woman wanted to feel the power of transformation. Nowadays, individualism reigns, and women can wear any kind of cut, color, shape, or style. Yet it all began with that luxurious, eye-catching crop. Learn more about it below.
