6 Daring Beauty Looks to Try This Season

Hair gets punked up with a mishmash of textures and finishes. Whether side-swept or sleekly sculpted, think controlled styles that showcase summer’s ‘It’ accessory: super-sized earrings.

BRAIDS OF GLORY
Add roughed-up volume to a plaited updo by spraying strands with Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray. Earrings by 3.1 Phillip Lim; shirt by Valentino at Holt Renfrew; jacket by Marc Cain.

ALL GLOSSED UP & LOW SLUNG
Experiment with extreme texture by dabbing Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil over a sooty smokey-eye for a vinyl-like effect. Earrings by BVLGARI; dress by Andrew Coimbra. Lock in an intricate, low pony with firm-hold hairspray like Kérastase Laque Noire. Earrings by Biko; dress by Versace.

TAKING SIDES
Push hair to extremes with a major flip and crimped waves that channels ’80s bad girls. Heat up Varis 1” Micro Crimper for perfectly crinkled strands. Earrings by Jennifer Fisher; dress by Zoran Dobric.

SLICK CONDITION
Wet-look hair takes on a sculptural quality with strategic strands framing the face. Load on AG Hair Hard Gel for all-day staying power. Demand attention with Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Black Truffle. Earpiece by Bjørg at Archives; top by 3.1 Phillip Lim.

GRAPHIC CONTENT
Forget pretty flicks or retro wings, and treat your eyeliner like a paintbrush. Try Lise Watier’s Féline Eyeliner HD in Blackest Black to create inky, hollowed-out shapes. Earrings by Ellery; dress by Versus Versace.
