Shoulder-length hairstyles are usually styled sleek and smooth, or allowed to air dry for the natural texture of a wash and wear style. But adding bouncy volume is another great option. Extra oomph is always sexy, especially when paired with tousled waves. The image above is a great example. The off -center center part creates soft asymmetry for fulsome waves to hang deliciously off of the shoulder. This style works best on minimally layered cuts that sit on – or just above or below – the shoulder. Click through the style notes for tips on getting lots of body in mid-length hairstyles.

Gigi Hadid may be the bigger social media star, but Bella Hadid is a darling of the glossies. In a surprising twist, this editorial from Vogue Paris – which highlights Dior’s Spring Collections – combines high fashions from the French label with an armor and swords fencing story. Perhaps someone was looking to score points in the influencer stakes? Bella’s beauty and the dreamy Dior designs create a captivating editorial but what catches our eye is the slicked back hairstyle. It reminds us of the power and the beauty of a sleek off the face look. It’s a great way to make cheekbones appear stronger and higher while adding drama to any look. There’s more inspirational photos from this collection after the drop.  Click for StyleNotes →

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 →

It’s time for some style predictions for 2017 at Style Note Towers; though trend forecasts are notoriously difficult in the digital age, we think it will be the year of the texturized lob.  Case in point, Jennifer Lawrence.  A once-upon-a-time newcomer to fame, and a hair chameleon, Lawrence stepped onto the fashion map with golden strands and a sweet look.  Now her locks have taken a turn to more of an edgy side, completing a high-fashion look. She has gone dark, short, blunt and bobbed, but our favorite look would most noticeably be her texturized lob (seen above) that she recently stepped out in.  With just the right amount of edginess and flare, it’s a killer style on the forefront of 2017.  See below for Style Notes. –– Brittany Taylor Click for StyleNotes →
