The Expert, Kyan Douglas
Rach's hair buddy
Q: I have a drawer full of cute hair accessories that I haven't worn in ages. Which ones will keep me on trend?
A: "Headbands, headbands, headbands," Kyan says. They're fast and easy, and will stay in place even on the most windswept boat trip. Pack a variety of materials and colors (sparkly or sporty) to streamline your look on weekend getaways.
Q: I've had long hair for years and am ready for a change. What's a cool new "now" cut?
A: "Michelle Williams' pixie with a longer, sideswept bang is a softer, flattering-on-everyone cut," Kyan says. "The swingy bang gives a breezy sense of movement and femininity that a more severe look might be missing." Want a more cautious cut? Trim a few inches and add soft, long layers. As a rule, you should go shorter when your hair extends past your shoulders more than 1 1/2 times the length of your face.
