Long Bob Envy

The long bob – everyone is doing it. The look is chic but can still be casual and effortless. Love this great example by stylist Candice Nicolle, based out of the Ramirez Tran Salon in Los Angeles.

Brunette Color Correction

If your hair is in need of saving, make sure you get it in the right hands. Not sure if your stylist knows what they’re doing? Pick one who has ‘proof’ that they do. Case in point with hair stylist Nickole Canestrale – she has an amazing Instagram with before and afters that leave no question she can ‘fix’ your hair. Check out this before and after and see more of her work on her Instagram page.

May I Be Blunt?

Came across this very modern blunt cut bob hairstyle done by Tasha out of The Fox and the Hair Salon in New South Wales, Australia. The blunt cut is a refreshing change from the oh so common wavy, bombshell hair we all love. Check out more amazing hairstyles and colors at The Fox and the Hair’s Instagram page.

Hair Color Envy – Bronde

Here’s a hair color to envy, want, lust, you come up with the adjective. This color is not fully blonde and not fully brunette, falling in between the two shades and looking incredibly gorgeous. Color by Katherine Hyde at the Jonathan & George Salon in Beverly Hills. Aside from the usual ‘bronde’, what name would you use to call this shade?

Editorial – Hair Fit for a Queen

Winter is coming, and bringing with it luxurious clothing. Embellishments and rich textures in fashion require attention to detail head to toe, and we are loving hair stylist Enrico Mariotti’s take on what it means to have regal locks.

The World’s Most Fashionable Bob

Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, arguably the most influential person in the fashion industry and has been for decades, has dawned the same bob hairstyle ever since she was 14 years old. Now normally one would think a fashion guru would like to change up their hairstyle as frequently as their handbag, but Wintour’s bob has become, at this point, part of her essence. Anna Wintour not having a perfect bob hairstyle would be like Vogue not having a September issue.

Wintour gets her hair meticulously trimmed once a month by famous hair stylist Charlie Chan, creative director of the Michaeljohn salons in London.

If you’re up for a google challenge, try finding images of Anna with messy hair. There’s seriously an article by the Daily Mail about the ONE instance she was caught with a hair out of place. It was newsworthy for sure!
