Maybe it’s because I’m getting tired of growing out my bob, but I’m loving short cuts right now. I’ve always been a fan of a well-executed pixie, but some seasons the shape gets too blunt and boyish for my taste and other times too piecey and wispy. The pixies this season are both soft and structured with enough length to wear down or tuck back, a clean, tapered back, and soft textured fringe. The images above are all of the same cut, showing how easily such a shape transforms with just a touch of product. Pair it with a pale blonde base and you could even change up the color for the ultimate chameleon affect. Click the notes to learn more about the cut.  –Laura Martin

came from when?

Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of vintage fashion and I’m always surprised to see how current trends looked in past eras. For example, check out the wavy bob pictured above. Worn by Norma Shearer in1936, it doesn’t look much different than the wob styles trending now. Pastel colors, pixies, and milkmaid braids aren’t as new as you might think.
