your look ● hairstyles By Yulia Riebman PHOTO BY TED WEST A Tassel Worth the Hassle Summer, being such a dynamic season, brings lots of exciting reasons to try new looks and give the old ones a new twist M ore and more, we see so-called unfinished and undone hair and makeup as an absolutely inde- pendent and self-sufficient trend on the run- way, streets, and as a most requested bridal and red carpet look.
