It’s been a fabulous week for Spring events, and guests are donning their most stylish headpieces. We saw two incredible examples from designer Aaron Keppel, worn by our dear friend Amy Fine Collins. Below you can see the spectacular owl Amy sported to the Central Park Conservancy luncheon and the edgy safety-pin crown that we showed you in our glimpse at Met Gala Style.

Long-time friend and muse Amy Fine Collins attended Monday evening’s Met Gala festivities with a look that epitomized Couture Punk. This is a peek behind the scenes at the salon, just hours before the rolling out of the red carpet, as I created the perfect polished pompadour to complement her stunning gown and breathtaking headpiece.

In his most recent blog post for the Huffington Post StyleList, Yves observes trends he’s seeing in women’s beauty at different ages. Young women are tending for plain austere looks while women in their prime are “flourishing”. His favorite example of this was seen recently at the Norisol Ferrari Show at NY’s Fashion Week. Read Yves’ Getting Bolder With Age piece or check out the Norisol Ferrari 2013 Spring Collection.

Yves shares his secrets for finding the perfect hair stylist or becoming a great one yourself. Gems include:
“I don’t criticize or dwell on what’s already been done, that’s all in the past, we’re working in the present.”
“I don’t ask what she wants to do with her hair, that question puts the client in an awkward position — you wouldn’t want your accountant to ask you how you want to calculate your taxes, right?”
