Sexy Summer Braids

This sexy windswept braided crown look is gorgeous and easy to pull off. A little Game of Thrones meets summer festival cool, it’s just the ticket for these hot August nights, especially in traffic-stopping shades of amber. To rock on trend style Marie Lou&D creative director Leon Gorman says “Spritz hair with sea salt spray to create texture, separate two small sections on either side of your head, weave a long braid then pin up."  See, instant glamour.

Beauty update:  the textured lob

The other hot contender for hairstyle of the moment is the textured lob (long bob). This effortless ‘Don’t care, summer hair’ look is achieved by having your stylist create lots of layers and adding golden highlights courtesy of French balayage.

Fashion Fix:  pre-fall wardrobe pieces

On planet fashion, the new fall season is beginning to drop (sad, we know). But in the real world, you need pieces to update our wardrobe for the trans-seasonal days ahead. Check out this shopping inspo from Vogue.

In magazine land, the bumper September issues are about to hit the stands showcasing the hot new fashion and beauty trends of the season. And in the case of Harper’s Bazaar they also pay tribute to icons of the style and music world, including the one and only Courtney Love, who recently visited Marie-Lou & D for a session with our creative director Leon Gorman.

Make sure you book your cut or color with the MLD creative team before 5 September to take advantage of our $25 gift card toward any hair treatment.  Perhaps a dramatic color change is in order?
