Currently viewing the tag: "hair textures"


Shared with us by Peggie Huang, stylist at ARROJO Studio SoHo, we love both the artistry of this chunky plait on the bias, and the way the tail of the braid has been fanned out into wonderfully nonchalant wisps. Peggie was also kind enough to share her steps to creating this eye-catching look. Great for a night out, a weekend brunch, or even just keeping hair off of the neck in this Indian Summer, learn how to create it in the notes.

When weather gets steamy, the perfect cut is one that looks great without a lot of effort. Collar-bone length, loose layers to enhance natural wave, and blunt bangs combine to form this season’s hottest shape. The style is long enough to pull into a ponytail on days when the temperature prohibits hair on your neck, but short and light enough to allow you to wear it loose even in steamy weather. Tousle in some wave mist and cream whip and you’ll look great all season long without sweating with your hairdryer.

In the beauty industry, “natural” rarely means untampered with, it usually signifies something closer to “believable,” a look that at least feasibly could occur in nature. We’ve gotten pretty good at mimicking colors and textures that exist in the natural world, but rarely do we show off  our actual color or textures, but rarely leave our strands in their natural shape. That may be changing. The recent runways have shown a much greater range of hair textures including everything from poker-straight to extremely curly. So instead of everyone creating “natural” barely-there waves as was the trend in 2015, this year we may actually see natural texture. Learn more about this emerging trend in the style notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
