The Latest Womens Fashion Trends

Love at first sight! We’re head over heels for this season’s latest trends. Wearable, beautiful, and statement-making are words that sum up this list of must-haves. Let’s start with the bucket bag, which mixes structure with slouch to create something both fun and functional. Next, the color of the season brings a flush to our cheeks (quite literally). It’s all about feminine blushes and nudes. And although the color of the moment is shy and retiring, the accessories are nothing of the sort. Go bold with earthly necklaces, statement cuffs, and show-stopping shoes.


1. Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag ($ 695)

Why Celebrities Love Balayage Highlights

If you’re looking to lighten up your hair with some bright highlights, make sure you know the difference between the traditional foil highlight technique and the increasingly popular balayage highlight technique. In New York City and Los Angeles salons, balayage highlights are becoming just as popular, if not even more, than foil highlights. “Balayage used to be considered a specialty technique, but because it is in such demand, more salons are offering it,” explains Donna Tripodi of NYC’s Eva Scrivo Salon. Celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Rachel Bilson, and Jessica Biel have all shown off enviously sexy, natural-looking balayage highlights recently.

Balayage, which is also called “hair painting,” creates the most natural looking results because the colorist paints on the highlights, and can scatter them throughout your hair in a more truly sunkissed and haphazard pattern. “When using foils, you work row by row which makes the highlight pattern look very linear and grid like, but with balayage, you have more flexibility on where you want to place the highlights so the resulting pattern can look more natural,” says Tripodi. Balayage also creates a more natural looking color. “With balayage, I start painting the color on at midshaft which is where the sun naturally hits your hair the most. Then, I gently paint up to the roots, which makes the growth at the scalp look more gradual. When you use foils, the entire section is coated evenly with color, then wrapped up in the foil, and the heat from the foil makes that piece uniform in color from roots to tips. Also, because you work in rows, the demarcation at the roots looks like a straight line,” explains Tripodi. Balayage is also the technique a colorist would use to create the grown-out ombre highlight effect. Another added benefit of balayage: longer lasting results. “Since the grow out at the roots isn’t as obvious, you can wait a litter longer before getting a touch up,” she says. Foils usually require a visit to the salon every six weeks, but with balayage, a client can go eight weeks or even a little longer.

Balayage may not be the best option for women with dark brown or black hair. “To lighten up dark hair, you need the heat from the foils to achieve a very light effect,” cautions Tripodi. “I sometimes like to use both techniques on a client to create a mix of bold and natural looking highlights. It’s important to find a colorist who knows how to do both techniques. They truly are different and it’s about choosing which one is good for you, as opposed to finding a colorist who just does one technique or the other,” advises Tripodi. A final word, no matter which technique you get: “It takes 72 hours for the cuticle of your hair to close after its been opened during a coloring process, so try to wait that long before shampooing. You can rinse and condition your hair, but don’t wash it with shampoo. Use a dry shampoo if needed. This is most important for redheads,” cautions Tripodi. My favorite dry shampoo: Klorane Oat Milk Gentle Dry Shampoo, $ 18, adds volume and texture, and smells super fresh.
