Festival season is bringing braids back with a vengeance. The entwine pictured on the left was worn by Kate Bosworth last year at Coachella, and kicked off a trend of braided partings—using small braids to line a hair part—that’s still going strong. It’s a really cool twined look, one that feels neither urban-edgy nor farm-girl cutesy. This braid is subtle, slightly bohemian, and polished. Add it to your own spring wardrobe; learn how in the notes. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

The Shag: a signature look of the 1970s—rock star girlfriend Anita Pallenberg and actual rock star Stevie Nicks come to mind—is resurfacing among it girls, just with some new updates. Much like the original, the modern shag of today is all about layers though it’s not as severe as its predecessor. Today, I’ve seen lengths that vary from bob to longer strands with much more texture, but the vibes and body are still the same. So if you want to get in on this trending look, click through to style notes to see some of my favorite styles and book an appointment with your stylist. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

Showing just a bit of something feels erotic: off-the-shoulder tops, peep-toed shoes, long, slit skirts. This principle applies to hair too. Pulling hair up completely to reveal the face and neck doesn’t feel nearly as erotic as leaving it loose, but tucking it in such a way as to cover most of the neck and the side of the face, but revealing the ear. The result is surprisingly flirtatious, even alluring, but in a way that feels unintentional, almost accidental. Try it on your next date. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Contrast is one of the most important aspects of design, lending balance and distinction to otherwise harmonious elements. We tend to think of contrast as striking polarities—black and white, short and long—but using contrasting lines is a great way to add variance that doesn’t feel dramatically discordant. Pairing straight hair with a jagged part or waves with a crisp dividing line creates a subtle, pleasing contrast. Get step-by-step instructions in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
