Presenting her Spring 2013 line in New York, designer Misha Nonoo accentuated her fresh, girly designs with a Frida Kahlo-inspired hair look that was soft, pretty and feminine. Created by Marcos Diaz of ION Studio for Davines, we got the scoop on how to recreate the look at home!

Carolina Herrera's Spring collection was all about lightness and fluidity, using fabrics such as chiffon and tulle. Hairstylist Orlando Pita of Orlo Salon for Moroccanoil designed strong, architectural looks for the Carolina Herrera Spring 2013 collection. The sleek, shiny, and graphic style was straight on sides and back –with front, mid-brow strands pulled back to simulate the effect of hair held in place by a barrette or ponytail.

Take me away! The Daisy Fuentes for Kohl’s Spring Summer 2013 collection definitely had a getaway vibe. There were elements of gypsy throughout, with headscarves and floor length skirts in paisley and medallion prints. Crochet made an appearance in the form of cropped sweaters and dresses. Mixing in contemporary looks, the looks showcased something for everyone. The black diamond lace and leather shirt with ivory trousers was unexpectedly chic. And the scarf print boxy top with ivory shorts has some closet staying power.
