Still on the fence about growing out your summer bangs? That’s what my friends and I have been debating about lately (I know…very deep). When I got a cut from celebrity hairstylist Adriana Tesler (she’ll come to you wherever you are in LA!), we decided to keep the bangs and just make them lighter. When they start getting longer, I’ll style them side-swept, but for now, I’m enjoying a little fringe.
I’m not very picky about shampoo; as long as it cleans my scalp and hair, I’m good! Conditioner, on the other hand…that I’m choosy about. I don’t like mine to be too heavy or stocked with chemicals (the latter of which should go without saying, but for many brands, it doesn’t).
Bangs (whether long, fringe, or short and choppy) were big on the runways in New York, London and Milan this season, but leave it to Prada to come out with a unique take – side bangs. The look was aptly conceived to be “simple but extreme,” according to hairstylist extraordinaire Guido Palau.
It’s hard to believe that there’s a real model under all this makeup…but there is! Gareth Pugh is no stranger to envelope-pushing beauty, but this is particularly stunning. Though there’s little to inspire a real street look (do love that hair, though…), this is awe-inspiring in terms of originality and execution.
“A braid is flattering on everyone, and can work for a day at the office, a night out, or your favorite music festival,” says Dove celebrity stylist, Mark Townsend. “Added bonus: your hair will have great texture when you take the braid out!” Personally I love it as a versatile gym look.
It’s not often that we see a truly unique look on a runway these days (putting aside clownish, over-the-top beauty and hair styles that no one would wear in real life). Public School managed to show one that was fresh, easy to re-create and versatile enough to wear day to night.
Forget that Jennifer Aniston is involved; the reason I trust Living Proof blindly is that all of their products were developed by scientists, meaning they put function first and foremost. These must work!! True to that, I have yet to try anything from them that I don’t love…
If you have great hair, all you need is a pair of sunglasses and your favorite bag to feel put-together when you step out the door. Proper brushing plays a part in this, but products do too and it’s always best to go the natural route here.
