Last week’s best beauty Instagrams made for a striking lesson in bombshell summer appeal. Take a beauty cue from Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio, who elevated her sleek, center-parted knot with scene-stealing red lips that rendered any other trace of makeup unnecessary. Neat ballerina buns also struck a chord with Brazilian model Adriana Lima, who twisted her raven locks into an off-kilter topknot; while American actress Olivia Culpo opted for a neat chignon that had her looking as snug as a bug (the one that landed on her forearm, that is).
While buns are a stylish, stealthy hairstyle to help beat the summer heat, Tunisian model Hanaa Ben Abdesslem offered a different (and effortlessly chic) alternative by way of a sleek pixie cut and deep side part at the Ralph and Russo Fall 2016 Couture show in Paris. Elsewhere, British model Jourdan Dunn opted to shield her strands with a backwards cap that lent a sports luxe feel to her festival ensemble.
Beauty mogul Huda Kattan was feeling blue last week. Kattan took the rainbow plunge by way of a shocking hair transformation, and debuted teal, dip-dyed strands—which were most likely achieved via temporary hair dye—for a rebellious summer statement.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old model Bella Hadid showcased an edgy statement of her own. Following the Atelier Versace Fall 2016 Couture show, the stunning Palestinian beauty pulled out all the cool-girl stops: slicked back hair, glitter-encrusted red lips, and paparazzi-proof aviators.
Ciara wed her quarterback beau this weekend at a romantic castle in Cheshire, England. The singer elevated her wedding glow by way of cascading, waist-skimming waves, pastel pink lips, and bronzed lids.
Having mastered the art of the pose (she did write a book on it, after all), model Coco Rocha posted a stunning selfie with two fingers strategically positioned on her pout to show off her edgy, summer manicure.
