Shared with us by Peggie Huang, stylist at ARROJO Studio SoHo, we love both the artistry of this chunky plait on the bias, and the way the tail of the braid has been fanned out into wonderfully nonchalant wisps. Peggie was also kind enough to share her steps to creating this eye-catching look. Great for a night out, a weekend brunch, or even just keeping hair off of the neck in this Indian Summer, learn how to create it in the notes.

Can we talk for a minute about how much I love Spotify’s “Discover Weekly” playlist? In the past I’ve always been pretty disappointed with technological attempts to predict my taste. Amazon is not good at recommending books I’ll like, Pandora playlists constantly disappoint, but the Discover Weekly playlist knows me well. It was there that I first found Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel. Check out her clear voice and melancholy melodies, here She’s a genius on the piano. She also has fantastic hair. She wears her golden strands in understated braids, knots, and ponytails that look both girlish and grownup thanks to subtle wisps and glossy shine. Get tips for creating her quirky classic looks in the style notes. Click for StyleNotes →


The Alexander McQueen show is always a visual treat, usually part macabre, part romance, and with lots of shock and awe. So when creative director Sarah Burton presented a sensual and romantic vision of beauty on the runway, it was surprisingly provocative. The bohemian and feminine hair was a mix of slept-in spirals and embroidery. The design team actually used a needle and invisible thread to create the homespun style. While this style is definitely editorial, you too can have a romantic style by loosely tying hair back with a gold ribbon or a broach and by leaving any stray tendrils out.

breezy look

One of the most frustrating things about fashion is that there’s often a big gap between what you like and what looks good on you. I love cornrows and sleek wet-look styles and center parts, but these looks do not love me. I have a square jaw and a strong nose which do not pair well with boyish or severe styles. I can’t go too far the other way either. Put me in flouncy curls or a big poofy updo and I look like a drag queen. The most flattering hairstyles for strong features like mine are simple shapes with soft details like this breezy upswept ‘do. Learn to create it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Sunday is a great day for sleeping in, ambling about, and brunching with friends. The quintessential Sunday style is something that says ‘I didn’t even try to pull off this perfect look, it just kind of happening.’ Laid back, chic, and just a little undone should be words to live by when you are dreaming up a style for Sunday afternoon frolics and fun.
