Last night, the pretty and the privileged got together to award themselves Golden Statuettes at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The best part of this glorified advertisement is of course the red carpet, where our leading ladies sway and sashay in the most gilded of gowns, and the hair and makeup sets the tone for the palettes of the spring season. Marking the spot for the monochrome beauty trend, Emma Roberts’ sleek strawberry blonde hair and matte red lips were elegant and chic. Featuring a a side-parted sweep with ribbons of soft curls, the strawberry tones are a great fit for Emma’s complexion, while with the hair tucked back on one side and falling forwards on the other, the admirer’s eyes are encouraged to take in the whole face-frame.

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 →

When people are growing their hair out from a pixie cut they usually hate the first few months while they wait for the length of the sides and top to catch up with the back, but this is also the time when they’ll get the most complements. As the front grows, if you continue to cut the back length (which will otherwise turn into a mullet) the result is a crisp bob-like line in the nape with piecey sides, a long bang, and lots of texture. Its fun, feminine, and carefree. But you don’t have to go pixie-short first to achieve this look, learn more in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

The wavy lob that’s been the go-to for the last few seasons is starting to feel a bit tired. Hairstyles are moving away from the middle ground and toward the ends of the spectrum. So you can still wear a bob and be on-trend, but it’ll need to be a crisp, chin length version. If that sounds too extreme, you may want to head in the opposite direction to the aggressively layered, unruly shape of a shag. THe shag is often shown as a longer cut, but the original shag, worn by Jane Fonda in the 1971 movie Klute, was shoulder length and subsequent versions—worn by celebrities ranging from Joan Jett to Meg Ryan—range from mid-back to chin, with plenty of variations you can have right now. Click the notes for classic examples of shags that you won’t need to grow into. ––  Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →



This year’s Golden Globe styles were a bit more exciting than previous years. While glittering frocks and long lengths were a plenty, I did spot a great evening suit on Taylor Schilling and a crop top on Kate Hudson. Hair-wise, polished and primped hair worn by Lady Gaga and Cate Blanchett stole the show. Funny gals Uzo Aduba and Melissa McCarthy kept their looks lively with textured and wavy tendrils and Zoe Kazan was standout with a super-smooth, geometric bob. This was not a red carpet for shrinking violets. To see my favorite celebrity styles from the red-carpet, click through to the notes. — Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
