We spotted this American Wave on Instagram. Created by stylist Becky Morey at Salon361 in Ohio, we love the full and thick curvaceous texture and the easy, lived-in aesthetic. Embraced by celebrities such as Emma Stone, American Wave has been trending on the underground for a while now, but with styles like these coming to the fore, expect to see American Wave tumbling down a Main Street near you.

Perhaps musing over whether or not a 21st century version of an extravagant French queen would let them eat cronuts, CR Fashion Book dedicated their new issue to Marie Antoinette. The highlight is this delicious editorial, starring Lara Stone as the iconic royal. The racy, sexy images put Marie Antoinette into a modern cityscape wearing denim and dresses paired with a sensational messy updo accented with vines and twines. It’s great inspiration for vamping up any look. See all images below.  Click for StyleNotes →

It is way to warm to think about sweaters or velvet pants, but adding some hair accessories is a great way to wear fall fashion without overheating. This autumn, hair adornments run the gamut from understated hairpins to over-the-top jeweled headbands and everything in-between. Vintage-inspired fabrics, tulle veils, and playful shapes provide plenty of opportunity for experimentation.

It’s easy to give in and accept your savage strands, or give up and go for a basic ponytail, but there’s a better way. The best way to stop bad hair days is to prevent bad hair from happening in the first place.

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 →
