Yesterday I discovered a new accessory called hair charms on Free People and Nastygal.com. What is a hair charm? It’s pretty much what it sounds like, decoration for your hair—a cooler version of butterfly clips. These will look great from your summer festival looks, a perfect finishing touch for fishtails and crown braids. They’re also amazing for a more glamorous or evening looks, an alternative to a tiara or a bejeweled barrette. And if you really want to get creative you can customize your look with you your own jewelry and charms. I see these becoming the next big accessory for the summer, because who doesn’t want transform a basic braid into a work of shining art.

healthy

If your hair doesn’t hold a curl, slips out of buns, and refuses to tousle, the problem may be that it needs some more damage. Many of the current hair trends—natural texture, low-sudsing shampoos, temporary color—have little to no impact on your strands. The result is shiny, healthy, and very stubborn hair, referred to by professionals as “resistant.” Until recently, most people were coloring, perming and heat styling their strands, and these services roughed up the cuticle, making for hair that absorbed product and held texture better. Of course, plenty of people went too far and ended up with dull, damaged locks, but for those who hit the sweet spot a bit of processing improved volume, movement and hold. How do you get pliable, easy-to-style strands without frying your tresses? Click the notes to find out. –Laura Martin

Woman with scissors

As a professional hairstylist I know getting frequent haircuts is the key to keeping your hair looking thick and healthy, but this is not something I abide by for myself. I am pretty much the opposite. While I don’t advocate it for everyone, because it can give you more tangles and split ends than you can count, it may be the road you want to travel, at least if you are growing your hair out.
