The hottest hair color trend for Spring so far? If Hollywood is any indication, it's all about red. Rachel McAdams has joined a slew of celebrities embracing the benefits of being a redhead, which also include Dianna Agron and Coco Rocha. If a major hair color changeup is in the cards for you this season, you might want to consider this crimson hue. What's your take?
Polka dots seem to be everywhere these days — both the traditional version and some more modern, eclectic interpretations.

Railroad stripes made a big splash on the Spring runways, with designers like Altuzarra, Rag & Bone, Jenni Kayne, and more showing off a sophisticated spin on the Oshkosh B'Gosh overalls we wore as kids.

Mirrors can visually expand your space while adding a touch of style, but they aren't just for hanging. Lately, we've noticed mirrored accents on everything from desks and dressers to coffee tables and even wastebaskets. You could surround yourself with mirrors, if you were so inclined! No matter your level of self-reflection, we've picked a mirrored accent for you.
Bobby pins have long been the tools we use to expertly, and stealthily, keep our hair up. But lately they've been starring in the hair accessory game as accent pieces. Celebrities like Emily Blunt, Katharine McPhee, and Chloë Moretz have been spotted using the hair classic more for their form than function. Emily pushed a single pin into her vintage coif at the Critics' Choice Awards, while Katharine and Chloë stacked a trio of pins each.
Stick to side-swept styles to make sure your hair doesn't look like you forgot to pull out your pin. All three women's bobbies were actually serving a purpose, too, and a wayward pin almost always looks like a mistake. As for colors, let the style dictate which ones you choose. Similar hues to your hair color look classic, like Emily's pinned-back style. For a punchier take on things, try Katharine McPhee's colorful trio. Either way, you'll have a hair accessory that wins in both utility and chicness. And what's better than that?
When it comes to fuss-free style, loose waves seem to be on the top of everyone's list. Four ladies at Sundance were spotted sporting the style, and they all prove, you can pull off the look no matter your hair length. From a long bob à la January Jones to a cascading style like Amanda Seyfried, loose waves are a sure way to look effortlessly chic.
If your hair requires a little more styling than just a wash and go, achieving this sexy style is matching your tool to your hair length. Those attempting shorter styles like January's midlength lob or Evan Rachel Wood's bob should opt for a one-inch barrel or try a flat iron with a curved shaft as a curling tool. If your hair has more length like Amanda's or Kate Bosworth's, reach for a two-inch barrel to give the bottom of your hair some movement. Remember to curl in opposite directions and finger brush your hair for a more tousled look. Now repeat after me: "I swear I just rolled out of bed like this!"
Emerald was announced as Pantone's color of 2013 early last month, and some of our favorite style setters have wasted no time heralding in the new hue with their clothing choices (we've already spotted Kate Middleton, Doutzen Kroes, and Allison Williams sporting the shade). But emerald is a jewel tone by nature, so it's no surprise that other stars — like Beyoncé, Lea Michele, and Alessandra Ambrosio — have gotten back to basics by accessorizing their neutral ensembles with stunning emerald baubles. Whether it's a smaller stud or dangling drop style, emerald earrings pop nicely against any skin tone, and can elevate even the most basic LBD. We've rounded up 10 of our favorite pairs — click through to see and shop them now.
Braids will always be bountiful in the world of beauty, but lately it seems that celebrities are taking to a new kind of plait: the conjoined braid. This twisted style starts as a french braid that frames your face before cascading into a long tail. Celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and Rita Ora have been spotted sporting the style, and Lucy Liu added a formal flair to her braid when she walked it down the red carpet at the Golden Globes. A new twist can add some life to an otherwise played-out style, but will you be taking the conjoined braid out for a spin?
