Celebrity Hairstyles for Fall 2015

When it comes to what is trending in the hairstyle category, you can always be assured that if you look to celebrities you will find what is current with color and cut.  Sometimes, actors do have to adapt their look to whatever role that they may be playing at the time, but you will definitely see their individual style shine through.

For men this year, you will be seeing more of the “swept back” look like you see with this photo of actor Colin Farrell. It is a very neat, almost vintage look, but still allows for a little piecey layering of the hair, so that you don’t end up looking like you are wearing a helmet.  Colin’s facial hair is also closely trimmed, in a movement away from the bushy bearded look.

Also, you will see more men this year with a pompadour style haircut that very hot in the fashion world.  This particular hairstyle dates back to the 1700’s and was also popular with singers like Elvis.  It is characterized by an upsweep of the hair off the forehead in a rolling fashion that keeps the bulk of the hair on top of your head.  In this photo of fashion icon and soccer star David Beckham, the sides and back of his hair are shaved more closely to pair with his facial hair, giving it an almost a congruent look.  For either one of these styles, styling products and a blow dryer with round brush will be a must.


As far as female hairstyles are concerned, the “curly girl” is back, so if you are lucky enough to not have to perm, roll, or wave your hair, then enjoy the fact that you are “in” this season.  You will be seeing a lot of the lose “beach wave” tresses in women with longer hair like in this photo of actress Olivia Wilde with her flowing long hair that is colored in a very trendy ombre style where the darker on top fades into the lighter on the bottom.


For the short hair category, actress Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect example of a short wispy hairstyle that is still feminine looking to highlight her beautiful facial features, but still with not too much styling to deal with when it comes to getting ready in the am.

4 Ways to Pump Up Your Style

To be truly fashionable, you need to have some individuality to your look. However, that doesn’t mean you should run out and immediately buy a quirky, hipster wardrobe. That tactic can actually work against you, since trying to incorporate too many trends into your wardrobe won’t work. In order to find your own unique style, try tweaking the small things first. Here are four tips that provide good stepping stones for men who are looking for ways to pump up their personal style.

Details Make the Man

 The old adage of the devil being in the details is still around for a reason, and that’s because it’s the small tweaks that really set apart the stylish from the fashion-challenged. One of the easiest ways to start updating details in your wardrobe is experimenting with socks. Designer men’s socks from VK Nagrani, a high end sock and underwear retailer that sells lots of different colors and fabric types, are a great way to kick off your makeover. If you’ve never purchased a pair of checkered or brightly colored socks before, now’s the time to try. As long as the quality is there, you can get away with a lot of different socks. Just remember to never wear dress socks with athletic shoes, or thick athletic socks with dress shoes. While this isn’t very hard to remember, it’s good to keep in mind as you start browsing soc

Dig Deep and Find Treasure

According to Esquire, a recent study revealed that men only wear about 13 percent of the clothes in their closet. If you’re a man that falls into this category, then it’s time to shop your closet. Chances are that unworn clothes are hanging in your closet due to one of two reasons, the first being that some of the garments don’t fit properly. If you know a shirt or pair of trousers don’t fit the right way, toss them. The other reason, though, is that you might have bought something you liked, but then either felt too intimidated to wear it, or even forgot about it. It happens to every guy, but that’s why you need to dive headfirst into the unworn items in your wardrobe. In effect, in theory, you should be wearing 1ect a serio00 percent of your wardrobe. Wearing your clothes confidently is the perfect way to injus dose of personality, since confidence shines through.

Polish Head to Toe

 Always keep your clothes, shoes, and accessories in good shape. Looking sharp is definitely a personality booster that people notice, and you’ll be associated thereafter with looking put together. Men’s Journal recommends that shining up your shoes makes you look refined, and people notice. Many men also have one or two main pairs of shoes they wear on a daily basis, depending on the social occasion, so you’ll want to take care of those shoes. You don’t need to have five pairs of Italian leather loafers to be stylish, but you do need to take proper care of the ones you have. A little polish can go a long way in projecting the type of image you want.

Be Creative and Clever with Accessories

Ask Men highlighted ten of the best dressed men who regularly appear on Instagram, praising fashion icons who knew how to get the accessories right. It’s small touches, such as matching a bracelet to a shirt pattern, that gives your look flair. Therefore, if you’re going for a patterned shirt and you want to rock a wooden watch, make sure there’s some connection between the watch and the actual colors or pattern on the shirt. This is the best way to use accessories in a smart manner that boosts your style savvy. Incorporating  unexpected and unique elements with your accessories also draws positive attention and makes you seem like a trendsetter. For example, watches for men these days have grown increasingly daring and avant-garde. Don’t be afraid to wear one on your wrist as long as it matches your outfit and the rest of your aesthetic. On the other hand, some men enjoy shopping for multiple accessories and have an array. You don’t need to have a huge collection, but rather, just a sense of self awareness about what you’re trying to channel.

Finding your own style identity isn’t difficult if you take it one step at a time. Jumping into the nearest style guide and trying to incorporate everything you learn into your look at once is only going to lead to a jumbled, aesthetically messy appearance. Take a few of these tips into account and carefully select a detail to focus on that you feel suits your personal look. Make sure you’re following basic style rules, such as what kinds of socks to wear with dress shoes versus athletic shoes. Beyond that, though, feel free to experiment to your heart’s content until you find a look that’s truly your own.

The Lowdown on Button Down Skirts

If walking into a store today reminds you of Clueless, we couldn’t agree more. The 90’s trends of fake tattoo necklaces, mini skirts, crop tops (once called belly shirts) and 70’s come 90’s inspired flares are back! If you’re not ready to relive your jr high school days just yet, might we suggest easing into the look with a front button skirt.

Lucy Paris Scalloped A-Line Mini Skirt

Paired with tall boots or flats, these skirts really come together. However you can make the skirt look a little more modern with short booties or wedges for a new take on an old trend. Another way to dress up the look is by playing with luxe fabrics and fun hems. When it gets a little colder add some Cher approved knee highs or colorful tights to take the mini skirt into the winter months.

Check out some of our favorites, such as the Lucy Paris Scalloped A-Line Mini Skirt. The rich cognac color, scalloped detailing and faux suede material give this Boho-style skirt some extra pizzaz. For a more streamlined simple look, try Aqua’s Faux Suede Snap-Front Skirt. This mini packs a big dose of “downtown cool.” Looking for something a little longer? H&M’s Denim Skirt with buttons down the front and side pockets is the perfect compromise, all of the look and a little more length, for those times you don’t want to show too much leg.

Embrace a buttoned skirt from your childhood; just leave your butterfly clips and Tamagotchis at home!

Healthy Hair Equals a Great Hair Day, Every Day!

Everyone is always looking for that “quick fix” for a great hair day, but actually there are many factors that contribute to beautiful hair. First of all, you have to start with “healthy” hair. One of the major keys to having healthy hair is proper nutrition. There are certain vitamins that are essential for hair growth like Vitamin C and the B Vitamin grouping, which includes Vitamin B7, B3, and Vitamin H, also commonly known as Biotin and Niacin. You can find Vitamin C in fruits and some vegetables, along with the B Vitamins in brown rice, meat, egg yolks, poultry, yogurt, and some soy products. Without these nutrients in your diet, either from food or through supplements, you hair does not have the ability to maintain its growth and shine. Of course, you can never forget the importance that drinking water plays in maintaining balance and function in your body, so get plenty of that too.


Next, you have to use products on your hair that are also good for keeping the hair shaft supple and hydrated. There are all kinds of treatment out there for your type of hair, whether it be dry, oily, thin, or coarse. Some of the shampoos and products have ingredients in them that dry the hair out, instead of plumping it with moisture and essential oils. One of my favorite products in this category is WEN. After you can get away from the fact that it is not a shampoo in the traditional sense, but instead a “cleansing conditioner” that is able to clean your hair without stripping it of its external nutrients, then you can enjoy the results of soft, healthy hair. Just make sure that you follow the directions for the best results.

Lastly, for different types of hair there is an individual need when it comes to drying your hair. At, they have reviewed the best in hair dryers and broken down the mystery of what type of dryer you need for your specific type of hair. By implementing the newest in technology with materials like tourmaline, titanium, ceramic, and ionic into hair dryers, you can find out what type of material in your styling tool will give you exactly the hair results that you are looking for. Why spend endless amounts of money buying styling tools that will not work on your hair, when you can check out this site to know exactly which hair dryer will give you the results that you need for your “great hair day”, every day.

Men’s Jewelry Continues to Increase in Popularity

Last year, the sales of men’s accessories grew 9 percent, reaching $13.6 billion. This capped a two-year period that saw the category grow 13 percent, according to NPD Group, a marketing research company. Men’s online jewelry stores continue to grow in popularity as well. In layman’s terms: men are wearing more jewelry.  A ring, necklaces, even watches are all fashion-forward statements that men all over are adding to their wardrobe.


Men’s rings aren’t relegated to just wedding rings these days; it’s a very popular fashion statement that can really be the centerpiece for any outfit.  Dressed up or down, anything you wear can be accented by a simple tungsten ring.  For the guy that isn’t into “bling”, there are plenty of subtle styles of rings and you can even get black tungsten rings if you’re into that color scheme more than something that shines.  For an even more subdued look, a brushed finish can make sure you don’t feel too flashy.



The crucifix has always been a popular choice for the more religious crowd, but not every statement you make with a necklace has to be so pious.  Necklaces can come in a wide variety of thicknesses.  Admittedly, necklaces take a little more confidence to wear than other accessories, but they can really make the style if done properly.  Thin metal necklaces are timeless in their popularity, but there is a time and a place for a trendy rope or fabric choker or necklace.  Granted, when you’re dressed to the nines, no one will see your necklace underneath your button down, but in a more casual setting, a necklace can do wonders for classing up your favorite t-shirt.


With the popularity of cell phones, it may almost seem archaic to strap a watch around your wrist, but a stylish timepiece can be exactly what your outfit needs to accent your look.  What is nice about a good watch is that you can find different styles for your own sensibilities or any way of dress that you decide upon.  Metal bands are always sharp when paired with a dark suit or sport coat, while earth tones in your dress can be paired perfectly with a brown leather band.  Regardless of how you dress up, a watch is a great accent to apply.


As men’s fashion consciousness continues to permeate the landscape, popularity in accessories will continue on its upward trend.  For the man looking to make a statement with the way he’s dressed, he could do much worse than pairing his clothing with a well-placed watch, ring, or necklace.
