Barrette Babe

Resurrect the barrettes of your teen years à la this 'do from the Christian Siriano runway and don not one but more than three at a time to give life to your otherwise usual ponytail! We recommend texturizing your long locks before doing so, to create even more dimension to the look! The messier, the better! Get the look:

#MetroBeautyWatch: Here Are 5 Ways To Wear A Chanel Ribbon In Your Hair

Choked Up Choked Up | Gee Plamenco

Choked Up

We saw a new way to channel the 90s at a Jonathan Simkhai runway show, where models donned chokers not just on their necks (that’s predictable), but over their messed-up hair. We say take it a notch further for romantic occasions and tie a black grosgrain ribbon over your locks for a sweet touch! Get the look:

I Tried This 10-Minute Japanese Hair Treatment—And It Revived My Damaged, Colored Hair!

Bombshell Bun

We’ve been big fans of the messy bun for quite a while now, and one of our favorites was from the Chanel F/W ’18 show at Paris Fashion Week where messiness took center stage. We love the contrast between a put-together outfit and an undone top bun like this, where texture and stray strands of hair are the definition of chic! Don't overthink this one—just bun it up, let the stray ends loose, add a bit of product, and off to the party you go! Get the look:
