The dog days of summer is when curly girls get out their death stare. It goes something like this: you spend two hours turning that humidity frizz ball into a wave cascade and then your BFF tells you how jealous they are of your ‘easy texture’ and then you give them the death stare. Or this: you spend 3 hours straightening out your hair to meet your other BFF and she tells you how she made her hair straight in five minutes and then you give them the death stare. Let go of the angst with this quick and easy how-to for stylishly controlling curls with product and elastic.

We adore this look created by the ARROJO NYC editorial team for the Irina Vitjaz presentation at New York Fashion Week AW ’17. A vintage glamor wave, with one side tucked behind the ear and the other side tumbling forwards, over the neck and shoulders, a soft asymmetrical effect is created, one which encourages the eyes of an admirer to drift all across the face frame, taking in the model’s high jawline, sultry eyes, and perfect pout. Best of all, with the right tools and techniques you can recreate this look at home in 15-20 minutes. Learn how below.  Click for StyleNotes →

Winter weather can get you feeling frumpy and down, which is likely why salons are busier in January than July. Exiting the hair salon with perfectly glossy and vibrant hair color perks us up when we feel shabby and pale. But returning to the salon two weeks later wondering where all that magic went makes us mad as hell. While professionals do sometimes get things wrong, the most common reason why color fades too quickly for our liking is the way we treat the hair before and after the dye job. Eight simple rules can give you longer lasting, brighter color. Following these steps will make your feel better about your beauty investment, and extend the time you have to go back to the salon for a touch up.  Get the scoop below. . .

Amy-Adams-Vanity-Fair-2017-Hollywood-Issue

Amy Adams steals the show in the latest Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue, due for national release next week. Her glamorous gown and elegant pose are framed by a vintage Hollywood wave, the signature look of the leading ladies of the 40s and 50s. With one side of the hairstyle tucked behind the ear, the ‘do creates beatifying face-face-framing asymmetry. Yet the real magic is the ‘C’-shaped waves falling romantically off the shoulder. It encourages the eyes to look all around the face frame, taking in cheekbones, chin, lips and eyes. A little softer and less severe than the original interpretations of this style, Amy’s take puts the best of old world allure with modern beauty trends.
