Fashion month is in full swing in New York City and I’m predicting there will be an assortment of changes in fashion and beauty. One thing that’s staying the same? Enviable, looks-complicated-but-isn’t hairstyles. I’ve seen braids and ponytails come and go and have loved most, but I’ve always held on to the knotted ponytail. It’s an easy update to the classic ponytail and requires no hot tools or braiding skills. A win all around. So even if you don’t know what will be in next season quite yet, this look transcends time.

A bright silk lining elevates a well-made bag or coat, and now it can do the same thing for your hair. Placing a lighter veil on the underside of your hair illuminates your face and neck, softens the edge, and adds interest without breaking up the clean lines of a classic shape. From Victoria’s Secret model Romee Strijd to singer/actress Mandy Moore, celebrities are embracing the technique, which adds interest to classic shapes and long flowing lengths.

While fashion month is continuing its journey around the globe, I’m still catching up with all the beauty looks from New York and organizing my trend folders. There were so many trending styles in New York this season, most notably the focus on individuality. I loved seeing lots of different natural textures, waves, and even frizz (made fashionable). It’s going to be a great season for curls, kinks, and messy updos. To help you get a start on the season, I put together five of my favorite trends from NYFW.
