“I’ve recently become obsessed with Elle Fanning’s whole look, especially her smooth, single-length sheets of honey-blonde hair. The whole thing is a little bit Annie Hall, a little bit Marcia Brady—and hairstylist Teddi Cranford is onboard to help me do it!” – Katie Becker, Beauty Editor

Jane Birkin—while not the most original—is my eternal hair muse. If a stylist asks for a reference, I’m quick to Google up a Birkin board. If only I could muster up the courage to channel her highlights as well!” – Mia Adorante, Associate to the Fashion and Style Editor

“Drastic haircuts are tricky with curls, but Annie Clark (a.k.a St. Vincent) isn’t afraid to take risks. I’m not so sure I’d ask my hairdresser Melissa Hernandez at Devachan to help me go gray, although I am inspired by Clark’s chopped look.” – Emilia Petrarca, Associate Digital Editor

“I love Robin Wright’s bob, but when it’s shorter. When it gets too long, it borderlines some kind of Harry Styles comb-over hybrid.” – Jane Larkworthy, Beauty Director
