“Mod­els are sport­ing great cuts and fringes,” ex­plains Or­lando. At Rag & Bone ( RIGHT), he high­lighted the graphic lines by straight­en­ing the fringe. “To make it even more mod­ern, leave the rest of your hair tex­tured and wavy,” he says. Want sleek­ness? Ap­ply mousse to damp hair and blowdry with a large bar­rel blowdry brush. Af­ter, run a flat­iron over your lengths to get that shim­mer­ing re­sult. If your hair is mi­dlength, turn in the ends as seen at Jeremy Scott ( ABOVE), or spritz on sea-salt spray for a beachy fin­ish and tex­ture. “We’re let­ting ev­ery wo­man know that they can be the wo­man they want to be,” says Or­lando of the dra­matic cuts seen on some New York Fash­ion Week mod­els. “We’re ac­cen­tu­at­ing in­di­vid­u­al­ity so that when women look good, they feel good.”

You can prob­a­bly guess the rea­son be­hind the young-an­danx­ious phe­nom­e­non: in your 20s and 30s, you’re strug­gling to es­tab­lish your ca­reer, re­la­tion­ships and fi­nances – all Grade-a stress boost­ers.

But we also live in a cul­ture that val­ues busy­ness: “At least half of a wo­man’s over­all stress is di­rectly tied to her to- do list, both the num­ber of things she has to ac­com­plish and the list it­self,” says Dr Nancy Moli­tor, an as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of clin­i­cal psy­chi­a­try and be­havioural sci­ences.
