Instructions

1. Comb through the hair, then run some hair mousse focusing on your roots. This is essential for taming any flyaways, and will keep the style in place all day long.

2. If your hair is damp, use a light serum on the ends. Not only will it make them look super-shiny, but will actually be easier to braid.

3. Start a braid at the very top of your scalp, but dividing hair into 3 even sections. As the braid gets bigger, you will need more hair to continue it down to the nape of the neck. If you need a little help with this step, use a small, hand-held mirror to see what you’re doing.

4. Secure the braid with a thin elastic at the end. If you want more of a lived-in look, pull at the length of the braid. To create more drama at the roots, tease hair outwards, then mist with setting spray.

5 Stylish Haircuts For Thin Hair

Whether you’re losing some of your hair, or simply require a complete makeover for the new year, then our guide is a must-have.

You will learn to love your thin hair with these flattering hairstyles which are perfect for all faces, and are also really easy to maintain. All you need is a good set of curling irons, a few layers, and a bunch of dry shampoo!

Curls

Try to give your hair some body and bounce by incorporating a few curls. Even if hair is completely straight, create some much-needed texture with a curling wand, sea salt spray, and even leaving hair in a braid overnight. A side part keeps the entire hairstyle looking modern and fresh, whilst creating the illusion of thicker hair.

Blunt ends

If you feel like your is thinning out, choose a short bob with a blunt cut. A hairstyle like this frames the face, and takes the focus away from thin ends. Use a dry shampoo on clean hair to create some volume around the crown and through your bangs.

Long bob

Inspired by one of our favourite socialites, Olivia Palermo, the long bob ‘lob’ is ideal for women who want to flirt with the idea of a shorter hairstyle. Wispy layers make the hair appear thick and full, especially when combined with a subtle side fringe.

Highlights

How To Style Leopard Print

While leopard print may be a no-go zone especially if you’re into the monochrome look, it’s actually really easy to incorporate into your own personal style if you want to embrace prints. We’re not suggesting that you have to coordinate your entire outfit with your shoes, bag, and even nails – but just one statement piece is enough to safely embrace this trend.

If you’re still curious, here are just a few simple ways to wear leopard print and still keep your own style.

Dress

The best way to make your leopard print item pop is by pairing it with other basics. This look by Julia Restoin Roitfeld is perfect since all the other items are relatively subdued, and the dress is unique since it’s quite sheer.

A classic black, tailored blazer always brings a level of sophistication to a cheeky night-time ensemble.

How To Style Leopard Print

Coat

No one can carry off leopard print quite like Olivia Palermo, and this is a way to wear your item on a day-to-day basis. Pair with other basics such as a great fitting white or black shirt, denim cut-off’s and neutral flats for a stylish look.

How To Style Leopard Print

Sneakers

Spice up your look by choosing a pair of statement sneakers to wear on a casual basis. Make sure the fit is amazing, and take into consideration whether you want to wear socks with them, or go sock-less! Wear with denim jeans or leather pants for a classic model off-duty vibe.

How To Style Leopard Print

Blouse

Wear a leopard print blouse with skinny black jeans or tucked into an A-line skirt for a glamourous look for day or night. Make sure the fit suits your body shape – and roll up your sleeves if you want to show some extra skin!

How To Style Leopard Print

Sandals

Nothing beats a summer sandal, and leopard print is just magical when paired with a fresh summer glow. Accessorise your nail polish to suit with your sandals (black and white is always a winner), and keep your heels silky-soft by regularly exfoliating.

Get The Look: Olivia Palermo’s Bouncy Locks

There’s no doubt that Olivia Palermo has one of the best hairstyles in Hollywood. Not only does hair her look amazing, but it probably feels smooth and shiny as well! One of her most popular hairstyles was definitely the lob (growing out a long bob), since her ends were slightly highlighted and beautifully framed her face.

So what are you waiting for? If you have hair just like Olivia’s and want to create a glossy hairstyle without making your hair look super-straight, follow these steps!

RELATED: Wedding Dresses For The Unconventional Bride

Instructions

1. Start with hair that has been freshly washed and air-dried. This will give you the ability to work with the natural texture of your own hair, and really tease-out those natural curls.

2. If your hair takes most of the morning to dry, use a hairdryer on a low temperature, and lightly work your way from root to tip.

3. By now your hair should be completely dry, and it’s time to tame those flyaways! Apply a pea-sized amount of any coconut oil to your problem areas. Melt the coconut oil between your fingers, then lightly apply it onto the outside of your hair.

4. To create those enviable bouncy locks that Olivia is well-known for having, concentrate a generous amount of KMS California HAIRPLAY Makeover Spray, ($28.95) to the very ends of your hair. Not only will this make your hair stay in place all day, but it will create lots of texture as well – and won’t leave hair looking or feeling dry.

One of Rozalia Russian’s reception dresses was this beautiful embroidered gown by J’Aton Couture which featured a button detailing at the back. Keep your guests in awe by straying from the norm, and showing up in a beautiful short gown – especially if long dresses simply aren’t your thing!

Now we’re not suggesting you have to wear a sweater to your own wedding, but take a little bit of inspiration from Olivia Palermo and mix some high and low products. Although the sweater was casual, the tulle bridal skirt and blue Manolo Blahnik shoes (an ode to Carrie Bradshaw) helped to carry the entire outfit. Also how sweet that she matched with her groom?

Although Stone Fox Bride was only launched this year, it is fast making headlines throughout the world. Their simple designs are what attracts brides from all corners of the globe to choose this as their ultimate wedding dress.

Shenae accessoried the dramatic dress with a bouquet of red flowers and a messy bun.

How To Style Clashing Prints

Often considered a fashion faux pas, clashing prints have been made trendy by the likes of fashionistas including Olivia Palermo and Elena Perminova. The rules are often simple: if the prints clash, then you surely have a killer-outfit which is definitely street style worthy. Peek our favourite ways to style clashing prints below!

First date

Choose an outfit which expresses your style, but is still appropriate for the venue. With spring just around the corner, style a fun and flirty skater-style skirt with a fitted blazer and thick high heels. Make sure the outfit is flattering on your body shape, and you can’t go wrong.

How To Style Clashing Prints

Office

Dress a little bit low-key by wearing a pair of cropped trousers and a statement blouse together. This look is sophisticated because of the length of the pants, and nature of the blouse which are both classic pieces. Keep accessories monochromatic – so they won’t disrupt the nature of the entire look.

Beach

A sea-side look is simple to style since almost anything goes! A one piece bikini looks great when paired with a printed beach-bag, and funky playsuit. Keep hair simple and fresh, while adding a touch of colour to your cheeks.

Girls night

A classic girls night out calls for a maxi dress which you can choose to pair with a printed pair of sky-high heeled sandals. A red lip even works with this outfit, since the dress is fun and flirty without going over the top. Make sure to choose clothes which flatter your shape, and aren’t too big or too small for your frame.

Olivia Palermo’s Celebrity Style

We have serious fashion envy every time we see Olivia Palermo hit the streets. And with New York Fashion Week just around the corner, we’ve decided to take a look at this uptown it-girl’s best celebrity style looks from classic skinny jeans and blazers, to – and how you can steal her style for less.   

Statement jewellery
Olivia is a huge fan of statement jewellery – famous for her chunky necklaces bringing attention to her beautiful neck. But make sure you balance the outfit – a statement necklace only works if you’re wearing a simple tee, jumper or dress underneath to make it pop. Luckily there is fantastic costume jewellery at Sportsgirl and Topshop that look just as glam as Olivia’s.

oliviapalermo

Tailored blazer
Olivia loves finishing off an outfit with a blazer, whether it’s a floral summer dress or skinny jeans and a tee. It gives all her outfits that elegant and classy finish. Look for a basic fitted tailored blazer in black or white for less at Zara or Mango.

oliviapalermo2

Skinny jeans
Olivia wears skinny jeans to every occasion: a day in the city, fashion week, parties, or at nights out with her gorgeous German supermodel-fiancé Johannes Huebl. Look for a pair of skinny jeans that are not too low on the waist and comfortable. Jeggings are a great alternative too.

oliviapalermo4

White shirt
Olivia has taken the classic white shirt and reimagined it – whether she’s wearing it with jeans, shorts, tucked into maxi skirts or with a knee-length skirt, it always looks fresh and feminine. Add some bright statement jewellery and a colourful bag to complete the look. We love white shirtswith a little lycra stretch for a great fit (check out Witchery and David Lawrence), or borrow you’re boyfriend’s.

oliviapalermo5

LBD
The Little Black Dress is a wardrobe staple, and to get one in true Olivia-style, think Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina – elegant, chic and timeless. Accessorise with simple jewellery and your favourite heels. Portmans and Seduce are a great place to pick up an LBD without the designer price tag.

oliviapalermo7

Loafers
Olivia is tiny so is often in sky-high heels, but even fashionistas need to be comfortable every now and then. And who said you can’t look stylish in flats? Swap your everyday ballerinas for loafers, which look fab with jeans, a relaxed shirt and sunglasses.

oliviapalermo6

Sunglasses
Every it-girl knows sunglasses are your best friend when out and about. Olivia often steps out in big-oversizes sunglasses to frame her heart-shapred face. Splurge on Dior or Tom Ford sunglasses – Olivia’s favourite labels for shades – an investment you’ll wear for years.
