Although many people choose to lighten their hair for the summer, in the warmer months I often find myself attracted to darker shades. A light tan gives my normally pale skin just enough pigment to stand up to rich hues without looking washed out. This deep verdigris is a lovely choice for summer: reflective, verdant and jewel-like.

The trend for textured hair is slowly but surely trickling into the mainstream. But modern texture is not like the crispy poodle perms of the past; today’s movement is all about the timeless elegance, beauty and grace of disheveled, imperfect waves and curls. It may be a departure from the polished and the primed styles most women are used to, but as Juno Temple shows, hot damn, it sure is foxy. Here pictured at the world premiere of Disney’s ‘Maleficent’ the British actress uses artfully disarranged tousle to add a rock and roll sensibility to her natural allure. You can too. Learn how in the notes.

When, in spring 2012, a client came to ARROJO and asked for “dark roots, bright ends” we knew that the ombre trend –– seen, up till then, on the runways and in editorial –– was trickling to the street. Although some were unsure what to call it, suddenly everyone wanted a soft graduation of color, traveling through the dark, and into the light. So we  started to post about it on Style Noted, using many of the terms that clients were using, so readers could quickly recognize the trend, and then discover what it meant to the pros. It worked. This post on Lily Aldridge’s gorgeous caramel color touch went straight to the top of the pops, and we’re still loving the color today…The dark to light ombre effect shows delicious depth and dimension, and the accent of graduated color is a brilliant way to spotlight the texture in any style. For the original tips on getting this look (it’s still wildly popular and trendy), click style notes.
