Fishtail braids are easy, chic and attainable, even for styling neophytes. Rock the 'do messy or super neat, like singer Justine Skye did here at the 2016 VMAs.

While it might seem intimidating to rock multicolored tresses, you can certainly pull it off with the right combination of shades. We’re loving this whimsical strawberry blond with orange undertones look spotted on Jhene Aiko.

We’ve been obsessed with the wet hair look ever since Teyana Taylor's splashy debut in Kanye’s "Fade" video. The fresh-out-the-shower look is very alluring and sexy, and this short wet-looking 'do spotted on Kehlani is all of the above.

While a classic bob compliments almost any face shape, it's also fairly flat and predictable. Upgrade your bob by chopping a few inches off the bottom like this retro variation seen on Kelly Rowland.
