A Classic Done Right


Lea Michele gives us one of our all-time favorite looks: the ponytail. And she does it in perfect style: a sleek crown, a high capture and tons of wavy texture. Tip: For a full ponytail, gently tug on either side of the base to widen out tresses. Bonus Tip: Gather hair at the top and side first, then brush hair at the nape upward to meet the top; it’s a smoother finish!

If you wear a ponytail every day, be sure the hair is not pulled back too tight. Too much tension, too often, can lead to breakage.

Face Forward: Almost Nude


It’s almost the weekend! Do you have your makeup look figured out yet? Here’s your weekly inspiration…

ALLISON WILLIAMS
How to look natural, but with a little more oomph. Makeup artist Patrick Ta created a nude lip with a hint of pink, a nude face with a hint of glow and a nude eyelid with a hint of color. To bring the look a little more into finished territory, he topped it off with darke brows, a few coats of mascara on upper and lower lashes and a lightly smudged dark eyeliner.

Those with a heart/diamond face shape should draw attention to eyes and cheekbones with brow-grazing fringe or sideswept bangs.

Hair by Amber Kelley

Pink is just a happy color. It’s impossible to be sad while rocking bubblegum hair, and with hair this pretty why would you want to be? The beautiful balayage expertly blends with the soft white, making this a joyful look.

For women with a square face shape, any cut that softens your angular jaw and forehead is great. Try face-framing layers and highly texturized styles.

Floral Fantasy


Make it a reality, as did Evan Rachel Wood, who accented her chignon with a side of flowers. One large peony surrounded by baby’s breath and smaller posy-like flowers makes for a colorful hair accessory with a romantically beautiful quality. The soft, face-framing tendrils are a nice touch, too.
