Byrdie Editors’ Hair How-To: A Texture Takeover

At Byrdie, we’re obsessed with all things beauty, inside and out. We’re self-described product junkies, and we’re always testing out the latest stuff to see what actually works. Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials, and more.

While sleek hairstyles are super-chic and have their moments, we can’t get enough of textured hair these days. Maybe it has something to do with not wanting to fully let go of summer, but in general, textured styles are more laid-back and look best when every strand isn’t perfectly in place. Striving for imperfection? Now that’s a strategy we can get on board with. Also, these gorgeously—and thoughtfully, we should add—messy styles often embrace our natural texture, which is always a good thing.

We’ve chosen three texture styles and mapped out exactly how to achieve them. We like to call them style all-stars because they’re worthy of adding to your arsenal of signature looks. Plus, they’re easy and fun, and only require three products to nail. From the perfect pony to beachy waves, you’ll have these textured styles mastered in no time. ’Do you.

The 10 Fall Beauty Essentials Byrdie Editors Can’t Live Without

At Byrdie, we’re obsessed with all things beauty, inside and out. We’re self-described product junkies, and we’re always testing out the latest stuff to see what actually works. Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials and more.

As beauty editors, we’re bombarded with new products (we know—it’s a tough life). We’re always giddy to try them, but as autumn approaches, we’re finding ourselves reaching for a few of the same creams and foundations that we used this time last year. They’re our fallbacks because we know they work. In order for a newcomer to make it into our daily rotation, it has to be good. We’re talking how-did-we-ever-live-without-this good. So in the spirit of replenishing our beauty bags for fall, we’ve sought out the latest launches that we can’t stop talking about. From hydrating face creams to stay-put foundations, these essentials will take you through autumn, winter and beyond. Find out our new favorites—plus a few old ones too good to let go of.

From Our Friends at Who What Wear: Bold Handbags You Need Now

At Who What Wear, our editors get major outfit inspiration from fashion girls and celebs, and we love spreading the word about everything from affordable pieces we’re freaking out over to what’s trending now. Keep an eye on our guest posts for street-style looks, editor-approved must-haves, expert how-tos, fashion news and lots more.

Fall puts us in the mood for new boots, luxe layers and rich autumnal hues. It’s prime time for layering different textures and tones, but we like to take things a step further by bringing a bold bag into the mix. Grab one in a color or print that doesn’t necessarily scream fall—take a cherry red satchel or a floral crossbody, for instance—and you’ve got a chic look that’s completely unexpected. With so many colorful and embellished bags out there this season, adding a pop of color or wow-worthy detail is as easy as pie (we’ll take apple, please). Read on to see our outfit-making picks.

It’s heating up out there, but the hottest temperatures are yet to come. The sun is highest on June 20, the summer solstice, which also officially marks the first day of summer. Longer days mean more fun in the sun—and more time to show off your incredible style.

To help you figure out exactly what you should wear to beat the heat, I decided to share my list of summer-wardrobe essentials, from versatile sunglasses to the perfect bathing suit. As long as you have everything listed below, you’ll be more than ready for the longest days of the year.
