Last night the music industry headed to Vegas for the annual Billboard Music Awards. On the pink carpet we saw Drake, Lorde, and the queen Celine Dion but what we did not expect was the influx of updos!
Pull your hair up and out of your face ladies, because the neck-grazing low chignon is in. Currently underway is men’s Fashion Week in Milan, and low bun’s are all over the street—hardly a high pony or top knot in sight. I’ve spotted everything from tight sleek buns to unraveling knots with face framing wisps. This successful summer style works perfectly for catching the latest show or strolling down to the water-front. And no matter what style you decide to wear, it’ll keep you cool and chic all summer long. Click through to the notes to see my favorite street style stars rock the chignons you should be wearing. –– Michelle RotbartClick for StyleNotes →
I thought I was getting bored with the topknot, but sometimes a little reshaping can take something that seems tired and give it a second life. These reimagined knots feel fresh and cool. Unlike the messy versions we saw in the past, these glossy twists are perfectly coifed; not a hair out of place. The sleekness shows of the small differences in each shape. Each woman pictured here adds a bespoke twist: Jamie King’s knot is fishtail-braided, Patina Miller’s is looped, and Bella Hadid’s stacked into a perfect double halo. Learn how to create this reimagined shape in the notes. –– Laura MartinClick for StyleNotes →
Hooray for Sunday morning beauty routines! They should involve little more than sleeping in, rolling out of bed and getting your hair up and out of the way so you can enjoy brunch and a spa day. There’s seriously nothing more reliable and chic than a great textured bun, for Sunday mornings or even holiday parties. I see them on street style stars all the time and they can be worn in a casual or even polished way. And since the holiday vortex is just about to kick off, you need a great and easy look to keep in your last minute cocktail party or meet-the-parents brunch beauty arsenal.

Based on what I saw earlier this year, I’m predicting the Fall 2015 season will be full of statement worthy looks. Click through to style notes to get the scoop. –Michelle Rotbart
