Go Sleek

The past few seasons have gone wild for volume, but this season go for an endlessly chic, minimalistic style.  To create a straight look, start with a moisturizing styling creat in damp hair.  Blow-dry straight with a face-framing center or side part, and finesse the ends with a straightening iron.  For an ultra-glam style, twist your locks into a low chignon for a dynamite evening look.VASKEN pony photo by Gus Cantavero
Go With a Pony
Inspired by Louis Vuitton's Fall beauty looks, a perfectly placed ponytail is this season's must-have accessory.  Sweep your hair into a flirty and bouncy high pony to compliment curve-hugging dresses or gather your hair low and to the side for an edgier, asymmetrical look. 
Tip: for a perfect finish: wrap a small strand of hair from the underside of the ponytail around the elastic band, and pin to secure.

Create the lush, voluminous style seen straight off the runways by pairing long and loose curls with a deep side part.  First, work a thickening cream into the roots and blow-dry with a round brush before setting in large hot rollers for 20 minutes in order to get glossy, bouncy waves.  To make the look more natural, shake your strands and pull the hair into a bun immediately after removing the rollers: the hair doesn't look too "done" and has a sexy tousled look.
