Singing more than one color can emphasize texture in a cut, add shine, make hair look fuller or sleeker. The streaks of copper running through this rich brunette aren’t just about lightening, they create a glow that makes hair and skin appear luminous.

I have a love/hate relationship with bangs. When I have them, I get annoyed with them; when I grow them out, I miss them. Bangs can do so many great things: hide forehead wrinkles, draw attention to your eyes, make your hair look thicker. But they require a lot of maintenance, and when they decide not to cooperate they can be extremely frustrating. I’m currently overdue for a trim and my bangs have grown out just enough that I was toying with the idea of ditching them, until I saw this stunning fringe on Mulligan. I’ve got an appointment in a week and I’m bringing this picture. Why am I so obsessed? Click the notes to find out. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
