The lob has risen in the ranks to become the must-have haircut of 2013. This longer bob (hence, lob) can range anywhere from below the chin to just above the collarbone. Celebrities like Nicole Richie, Karlie Kloss, and Kerry Washington have all been spotted wearing the versatile, stylish look. And if you need more convincing, check out this celebrity inspiration roundup to print before your Summer haircut appointment.
The models on the Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture runway were walking contradictions. The makeup, which featured rosy lips and dewy skin, was the picture of sweet innocence, while metal crowns sitting atop smooth strands added a rough edge. These tiaras would seem more at home in an art gallery or historical museum, but somehow the designer made the runway his exhibit. The final effect was part princess, part Viking warrior.
The look: Slicked-back hair adorned with metal tiaras, bold brows, a glistening complexion, and rosy lips.
Trends: Bold brows and dewy skin.

Dior's Paris Couture Fall 2013 show featured models walking the runway with lips that looked almost wet with glitter. While glittering lips aren't something you'd see on any old girl walking down the street, they've become surprisingly commonplace on the runways of Dior. The pouts, of course, were reminiscent of the crystallized lips and bedazzled brows at some of Dior's past shows, and were offset with barely-there shadow and slicked-back hair. Wearability aside, the threepeat begs the question: just what will Dior bedazzle next?
The look: Tightly slicked hair, bold brows, barely-there shadow, and glitter lips.
Who would wear it: For the brave-of-heart only . . . or a die-hard Dior fangirl.
Color scheme: Rose gold, silver, and gunmetal.
The BET Awards were full of epic moments, but nothing was bigger than Erykah Badu's Afro hair. With women like Gabrielle Union, Nicki Minaj, and Janelle Monáe gracing the red carpet, the beauty was both fun and inspirational. Click through to see the best bright lips and natural hairstyles from the night.
When you've got an icon like Naomi Campbell walking in your runway show, there is very little you've got to do by way of hair and makeup to make your collection shine. Or at least this was the apparent thought behind the beauty at Versace's Haute Couture show. Models sported glistening skin, edgy eyeliner with fluttery lashes, and nude lips. Their hair was twisted into breezy topknots — well, everyone's but Naomi's, whose devil-may-care bucking of the style aligned perfectly with the overall attitude of the beauty look.
The look: Dewy skin, smudged black liner, nude lipstick, and messy topknots.
Who would wear it: A typical New York girl; someone high fashion with a slight edge.
Color scheme: Black, nude, and sienna.
