Infinity Braids Are Weaving Their Way Through Instagram

18950413_1430818290346516_7611878325752954880_n
Despite having natural chocolate-brown hair that I love, I still follow more hair colorists on Instagram than actual people I know. I live vicariously through the bright rainbow-haired people that come up on my Instagram feed and occasionally dream of dyeing my hair like the mother of pearl trend. Megan Schipani, a stylist at Bescene Studios in Rockville, Maryland, is one of my favorites to follow. Better known as @shmeggsandbaconn on Instagram, hair creations with clever names like "spicy watermelon" and "summer quartz" throughly entertain me. Lately, she's been styling her clients' hair into a braid that is much more intricate than the fishtails. She calls them "infinity braids." Turns out, #infinitybraid has about 4,822 posts, and #infinitybraids has another 419....

How To Get Bella Hadid’s Scarface Hair

gettyimages-692757550-1496761421

Both Hadid sisters are noted fans of clip-in bangs—but there was something about Bella Hadid's look at last night's CFDA Awards that took her hair to another level. Maybe it was the retro vibe of it all. After all, Scarface hair is one of the most covetedhairstyles of all time. Or maybe it was just that it felt decidedly fresh and different; the rounded bob was the cherry on top of a perfectly executed '90s look by Virgil Abloh and Off-White.

7 Easy Beach Hairstyle Ideas

beach-hair-lede

We've got nothing against beach waves. The beloved, tousled texture is a summer hairstyle staple, but sometimes it's nice to mix things up. Plus, there's the fact that not everyone can get beachy waves without some major styling. We all deserve to look cute and effortless at the beach, regardless of our texture, which is why we asked hairstylist Adam Bogucki, owner of Lumination Salon in Chicago, to share seven fresh ideas for the perfect seaside style.

The “Octopus Bun” Trend Is the PERFECT Lazy Girl Hairstyle for Summer

octopusbun

There are all sorts of hair trends that we would've never thought of until some hair genius or another brought them into our lives. For example, the mother-of-pearl hair trend — that's not exactly something that occurs naturally (or, at least not when it comes to hair). Other times, a trend has been around forever but only really takes off when Instagram finds a cute name for it. That's what's happening with the "octopus bun," which is really just another name for a specific type of messy bun. Take note.

Hi. _ My name is Brittney. I have hair like an octopus and I don't know how to take selfies. 🐙😮 #awkwardpictures #octopusbun #itsoutofcontrol #bungameonpoint #liveawkwardly #livefree #vsco #vscocam #vscohair Brittney Laird(@bernietaylor)님의...

12 Updos For Short Hair Because Who Doesn’t Like Options?

landscape-1494623926-slant-templateupdo-shorts

If short hair had a Tinder bio, it would read "Easy (LOL)." Then, after you got to know SH, you would find that there wasn't much else going on. But whereas people hardly ever do, hair—even a bob—can change, sometimes with nothing more than a few pins. Ahead, 12 updo ideas for our friends with lobs and chops because en brosse doesn't have to mean boxed-in.

Lucy Hale's Braided Fauxhawk

Okay, technically a tiny pony, but nobody could ever accuse this one of being boring—not with that raised, braided section running down the back of her head.

corset-braid

There’s no shortage of ways to braid your hair — we can think of at least 100 off the top of our heads. There’s one style in particular that seems to be blowing up our Instagram feeds as of late, however: corset braids.

We first told you about the trend back in March of last year, after the corset braid first made its debut at Vancouver Fashion Week last season. Models walking in Toronto-based designer Lesley Hampton’s show hit the runway with thick, see-through ribbons weaved in between two large braids. Now, as  the search for ultimate festival hair picks up speed, the look is being picked up by thousands of devoted followers across the country, like the awesome creation from @ray.voltage above:...

landscape-1492024375-hair-girls

Forget spring—we've got fringe fever.

The to-chop-or-not-to-chop temptation is more real than ever before considering that bangs, in every shape, size, and texture, are skimming the lashes of every It girl in site. Here, find an assortment of face-framing bang statements that will ooze cool through summer.

1 BIRKIN BANGS

January Jones(@januaryjones)님의 공유 게시물님, 2017 3월 6 오후 8:46 PST

To this day, Jane Birkin's fringe is iconic. So it's no wonder that the gap-tooth beauty inspired January Jones' newly-minted, '70s-inspired bangs. You can opt for a straight along  cut or add a shagged arch, the key is making sure they're soft and left to separate on their own. Francophiles, this one's for you.

2 CURLY BANGS
