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

The perfect bun is a powerful thing––just recall all the great man buns posted last week. Ergo, whenever you see a great bun, whether a ballerina or a chic and low chignon, you take notice. So when I spotted Margot Robbie’s very cool half-bun at the premier of Z for Zachariah during this year’s Sundance Film Festival, I knew I’d found a winner. This bun is perfectly imperfect and it gave me a strong urge to swear off boring bedhead for good. . . .at least until next week. For a look like Margot’s, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

In this style the disparate aesthetics of a defined center part and ruffled bed-head feeling surprisingly harmonious. A low ponytail can feel conservative, especially when paired with a neat, even part. But a tousled surface and subtle waves add lived-in sexiness for a more approachable vibe.

If there’s one word to summarize all up the emerging trends for 2015, it’s ‘unfussy.’ Clothing, hair, and makeup all feel a little simpler, paired down, relaxed. When it comes to styling this means less time spent with heat tools and less polished results. The looks shown here are a perfect example of this sort of simplicity. By using a crimper on random sections you’ll add interest and volume, but without creating a big, wild mess. The look is playful, not overwrought. Click the style notes for steps. –– Laura Martin
