Braids may seem like a style reserved for the warmer months, but Fall and Winter are prime times to get your plait on. And there are plenty of celebrities to pull inspiration from. Whether they're pairing milkmaid braids with a red carpet gown or a side plait with casualwear, the ladies of Hollywood know how to rock a good braid in the cooler months.
The biggest issue that keeps women from adding a set of fringe to their style is the fear of commitment. For better or worse, you're stuck with blunt bangs, through the awkward growing-out phase, until they seamlessly blend into the rest of your hair.
Well, Camilla Belle effectively removed our fears this weekend, when she seamlessly swung between her new, heavy fringe and a bangless style in less than 24 hours. On Saturday, Camilla stepped out sporting her hair in a sleek, straight style. Her deep side part dramatically concealed her bangs, save for a few loose, wispy pieces along her hairline.
To mimic the style at home, start with damp hair and apply a strong hold mousse, like Vidal Sasson Pro Series Mousse ($4). Next, part your hair deeply to the side, making sure your bangs incorporate into the rest of your hair, and blow-dry with a round brush. The trick is to focus the heat along your bangs and the hair it is blended into so it dries together. Once your hair is dry, apply a pomade, like Serge Normant Meta Form Sculpting Pomade ($25), for extra hold. And when in doubt, a strategically placed bobby pin can provide even more hold . . . and an adorable accent.

When you ran down the guest list for Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Art + Film Gala — Kate Hudson, Drew Barrymore, Nicole Richie, and Zoe Saldana — it was obvious that it was going to be a good night . . . for beauty, we mean. While the smoky eye was a prevalent trend on last night's red carpet, there were a few unexpected beauty moments, too. Nicole Richie wore a modern fishtail braid, and Camilla Belle's orchid lipstick bordered on electric. Whether you're a traditionalist or looking for something more daring, you'll find plenty of hair and makeup inspiration for your next formal gala ahead.
If you've ever sizzled your strands with a flat iron, then you know not just how awful it smells, but also how incredibly damaging it is to your hair. With the Ferrum Professional Styler by Ladies & Gents ($180), however, hair is protected thanks to an ingenious, nonheated fabric padding affixed to one of the plates. (Editor's note: the Ferrum was sent to us by the brand for review.) That means hair is cushioned gently as it's passed over, allowing your strands to breathe. Less heat and less tugging means less damage. It's really a win-win, if you ask us. A tourmaline-coated plate on the other side helps to further enhance shine and lock in moisture. In combination, you'll get more volume than you would with an ordinary flat iron — almost as if you had blown it dry instead.
To use, apply a heat-protectant first, and be sure your hair is completely dry. Set the dial to your desired temperature (140 to 450 degrees), and flat-iron away. If there were such a thing as hair insurance, then Ferrum would be it.
