Best of 2009: Hottest Micro-Trend

Unlike last year when delicate braids and black nails reigned supreme, this year's trends were more on the microtrend category. Nails, however, are definitely having a moment, whether they were cool-toned blues or greens or set off with a matte finish. With hair, it was pretty much anything goes lengthwise, and while it wasn't a trend that swept the nation, like headbands have in years past, we saw lots of creative ways to use more than one bobby pin, from the runways to the red carpet. (Psst: they're even great for stretching out a cut.) On top of all that, for hair color, it was all about ombre effects and chunky panels of hair color à la Rihanna, Rachel Bilson, and Whitney Port. Oh, and let's not forget that little movie phenomenon called Twilight. Tell us: what trend was your favorite?
