LA LA (STYLE) LAND…
April 22, 2014
Check out La La Anthony flaunting a fierce new cut! The star debuted the hip snip on Instagram and we’ve got to say that we’re feeling the low part and piecey flip details on this silhouette. Gold-dipped ends add just the right amount of edge to this sharp style. Do you love it?
SWIRLS OF SCARLET
April 21, 2014
Add flavor to an already gorgeous bob with perfectly placed scarlet highlights. Hair pro Hector Obeng did just that to this curvy, softly curled silhouette featuring rounded bangs and ribbons of red swirled throughout. Deft work with a curling wand creates the texture while an artist’s eye delivers the colorful effect. Would you make this look a part of your style portfolio?

Music star Rihanna sports a loose upsweep that’s perfect for Spring season wearing (and for the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards). RiRi keeps the vibe pretty/casual by gathering waves into an “undone” chignon, adding a soft center part and leaving select strands to billow in the breeze.
THE COUTURE BOB
April 18, 2014
London-based hair pro Desmond Murray snips away at the classic bob to produce this haute version of the silhouette. Asymmetric angles pique our interest while disconnected lines lead us away from the familiar into fashion-forward territory. Are you ready to shake things up? We thought so…

PRETTY IN PRINTS
April 16, 2014
Taking the stage at the recent MTV Movie Awards, actress Lupita Nyong’o was the ultimate mix master from head to toe! Colorful stilettos grounded the star’s colorful print (one of Spring’s hottest trends) dress while sexy specs worked as the perfect accessory to the star’s streamlined coif. Will you be taking a page from Lupita’s style/fashion playbook this season?
