This is a superfly beauty look from top model, Jourdan Dunn. Featured in the December issue of Vogue Japan, the colorful editorial sees the return of crimped hairstyles. Unlike the eighties, when crimps looked steely-tough, modern crimps are softer, fluid, add texture, volume, and visual interest. They also work with a bun or a twist. With narrower, shallower ridges, today’s crimping tools are helping the evolution. They are more versatile and can be used to create a tailored look.

Simple and modern, the hair at Céline always captures the mood of the season,  highlighting what real woman want to do with their looks. For Spring 2016, the beauty team sent clean and slick braids fastened at the center of the head down the runway. This isn’t the first time braids were seen this season. Public School, Proenza Schouler and J. W. Anderson all included streamlined plaits in their beauty looks. I love that all the variations look like they could be done by women at home. This look is fashion and function, a clean and uncomplicated look to get through a busy day. To see more styles from the Celine show, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

NOCTURNAL

Taken from the Nocturnal collection by Lina Arrojo this vanguard reinterpretation of the bowl features deep-set bangs and a dramatic blue-black color tone. We love how the brow-dusting fringe centers attention on the eyes while the classic, bold and graphic shape remains ideal for framing strong features. Learn how to style a similar look in the notes.

At the much anticipated Alexander Wang show, the designer proved he still knows how to make cool downtown girls even cooler. The Wang Gang was more eclectic than ever this go around. Instead of uniform meh waves, Irina Kravchenko, Anna Ewers and Peyton Knight strutted down the runway in a variety of easy styles—from micro bangs to shoulder length bedhead, and shorn shags. The beauty team did a wonderful job bringing out each model’s personality and natural hair with just a bit of tousle, snip and reshaping. The no concept show, according to Wang was the epitome of modern. And the looks certainly paralleled it by presenting no singular idea of beauty.

waves

Remember back in the day when you would get up early and anguish in front of the mirror to straighten and flatten your hair? I do. But I’m still trying to block that horrid memory out. Luckily, the the days of having to wear super straight hair are long gone and all the cool girls are wearing low key tousled waves with a center part. Accomplished with either a wand or some air drying and scrunching, this trending look has become a go-to for the festival circuit, and is even appearing on red carpets. Best yet, this style works on all hair lengths. Ready to tousle your locks? Click through to style notes to learn how. –– Michelle Rotbart
