Models—they’re not exactly just like us. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned from Instagram, it’s that they work a chignon—perfect or piece-y—off-duty just as much as we do. From Cara Delevingne’s hot tub topknot to Sara Blomqvist’s low-slung, center-parted wedding bun, check out our visual retrospective on how catwalkers keep the hair off their necks during the dog days of summer.
Just like “festival style,” we’ve grown a bit weary of the current flower-crown obsession. Not only have girls found a way to put florals on their head for just about any occasion (from concerts to polo matches), but most of the crowns we’ve seen are lackluster at best. Here at Style.com, we prefer two extremes: gigantic, over-the-top blooms or ultra-delicate daisy chains, like the ones we used to craft on the playground. Miranda Kerr recently posted a selfie wearing what appears to be a handmade wreath (perhaps by her son, Finn?). And at fellow model Sara Blomqvist’s recent nuptials, bridesmaids Bette Franke and Mirte Maas proved the sweet accessory is totally appropriate for an upstate wedding. We couldn’t resist including this baby photo of Cara Delevingne, who was an early adopter of the flower-child look—proving that the Brit beauty was basically born a trendsetter.
This summer, we’re spoilt for choice with bright lip options: We’ve seen Pepto pink, traffic-stopping tangerine , and even moody berry appear on the red carpet recently. But Miranda Kerr’s cherry gloss at last night’s Max Mara party is our current favorite. Kerr stepped out in a head-to-toe nude silk ensemble and slicked-back bun, making her shiny pout pop that much more. The key here was the subtle sheen—as opposed to winter’s go-to matte formulas. A polished, juicy finish feels just right for summer. Get her look with a highly pigmented gloss, like Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment in Cherry, or a sheer-but-lustrous balm, such as Lancôme Baume in Love in Very Cherry. Or simply pick up a cherry Popsicle from your grocery store’s freezer section and top off your dessert-induced stain with a clear lip lacquer.
Nexxus teamed up with supermodel Molly Sims for its forthcoming Color Assure line—adding her to the growing list of models (including Gisele Bündchen and Miranda Kerr) who recently signed contracts with haircare companies. According to WWD, Sims will undergo a “dramatic” dye job by Aura Friedman, Nexxus’ new celebrity colorist, and share her experience with fans across different social media platforms.
Barbie is no GoldieBlox—she’s plastic, proud, and #unapologetic. She also just scored a spot in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, proving she’s no dumb blond. [Allure.com]
For those who prefer 3-D manicures and glitter-flecked lacquers over triple axels and gold medals, the Nailympics just wrapped up in Italy—and the competition was fierce. From classic gels to clawlike acrylics with intricately designed themes, more than two hundred competitors (read: manicurists) from all over the globe competed for ten trophies and ninety-six different medals. #sochiwho?

Speaking of polish jobs, New York City-based nail salon Tenoverten recently announced a collaboration with J.Crew, introducing three shades named after real streets in downtown Manhattan: Houston, a pinky nude; Prince, a pale lavender; and Hudson, a punchy sherbet. (We think each color would pair well with the retailer’s Fall collection punctuated by pastels.) [Bellasugar.com]
Models (particularly those with Victoria’s Secret on their résumé) are stealing back the spotlight from celebs—at least in terms of hair-care contracts. Miranda Kerr has been named the first global ambassador for Clear Scalp & Hair, a brand that entered the market in 2012 with a focus on the foundation (the scalp), as opposed to split-ends. “Resilient hair is the hair that can handle all kinds of daily torture, [which] I know about—between photo shoots, runway shows, and events,” Kerr said. She joins another former Angel, Gisele Bündchen, who recently landed a contract with Pantene. Orlando Bloom may be out of the picture, but it looks like this super has no problem forming new relationships.
