There’s a new texture trend emerging, it seems, almost by accident. The combination of air drying, shine-enhancing products, and lighter, fluid cuts is creating glossy, separated, stringy texture. The look mimics the way hair ribbons after being blown about by a blustery day. It’s more controlled than frizz, but has the same cool, un-done quality. Learn to create this fun new texture in the style notes. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

matte texture

The beauty industry has been fawning over glossy hair lately, waxing poetic about the return of the flat iron and the best products for gem-like shimmer. But as I’ve been reviewing the styles from fashion weeks around the world I’ve noticed a wide range of textures and finishes. Designers like Oscar De La Renta went for high class glamour, but others—Adam Selman, Michael Kors—chose the opposite extreme: rough, matte finishes. These rugged wooly textures put a cool grungy vibe into their shows. Create this texture at home and it can do the same for you. Learn how in the notes. –– Laura Martin
