Tress chic


Don’t forget about your hair! Enhance impressions with the first most noticeable part of one’s beauty. Your hair will always be an important part of the appearance and will set the tone of an entire look. Complete your style overhaul with these top picks:

Big and bold

Styling is all about texture, so it’s best to bring your curls out. Big hair that make waves, nods to the glamorous ’80s. How to achieve that volume? A sea salt spray or a texturizing hair powder (must not be confused with a dry shampoo) does the trick.

Borrowed from the boys

Limited preparation time calls for low-maintenance beauty. This time, it’s all about short pixie cuts with a boyish charm. Choppier is better, framing the face and bringing your best features forward. If you are not ready to cut your locks completely, try getting choppy bangs that go halfway down the forehead instead. Best paired with bushy brows and a juicy stained lip.

All tied up

Braids and ponytails are classic go-tos, but are now worn with an edgier twist. Wear an acrylic tube over your ponytail a la Chanel, or wrap your hair in bands or ribbons, as seen at Fenty and Lanvin.

Slick and sleek

Hair that looks like you just stepped out of the water is apt for both day and night. Wear your hair up or down, straight or wavy, as long as no stray hairs are sticking out.
