I was in Los Angeles last week and I have to tell you, my hair was amazing! Usually when I travel, my hair and skin both freak out, but in LA, my skin was dewy and blemish free and my hair bouncy, glossy, and wavy. It looked great even when I let it air dry. When I got back to Atlanta, that all changed. My bangs turned greasy within a matter of hours, and the next day, when it rained, my hair somehow managed to be both flat and frizzy. It got me thinking about climate and how big of an impact it has on our hair. We change our hair routine when we try a new cut or color; adapting to climate is just as important.

This spring, the beret is making a comeback. It’s not hard to see why—francophile style is all the rage—but it is a little hard to see how. Berets have become such a stereotypical indicator of French-ness that we now associate them with Pepe Le Pew. Berets are also associated with beatniks, jazz musicians, and Che Guevara. Thats a lot of connections and they can make this particular topper feel a little costume-y. How do you make this historic accessory feel contemporary?

Hair products are usually marketed to a specific hair type: straight, wavy, curly, colored. But these distinctions often have very little to do with what hair actually needs. Some curly hair is fine, some coarse. Some chemically treated hair is still oily, some dry. Following your hair type in product selection can get you into trouble. So how do you find the products that will make your hair look its best?

While both long and short shapes are in fashion this fall, the trendiest length lies in between.

Fashion for fall 2014 is exhibiting a distinctly sixties influence. Mini skirts, knee-high boots, bold prints, and big hair are making mod feel modern again. Adding a touch of swinging sixties to your hair is easy, just add crown-based volume. To keep the look contemporary, part hair on the side and style in loose, smooth waves. Pair with a bold cat eye to play and nude lip to play up the vintage vibe. Learn to create the look in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
