Sometimes you see celebrity pictures and wonder, what on earth were they thinking? Sometimes they make good choices, sometimes – not so much. This week we found some very good choices and they were thinking side twists, updos and curls. Curls are the it look this season and as usual celebrities are leading the way. Color ranges from platinum blonde to deep chocolate brown. We haven’t forgotten the men in our lives with a celebrity buzz cut.
Lauren Conrad was wearing a very feminine side twist at the VH1 Save The Music Foundation Gala. The side bang flatters her heart shaped face and this is an easy style to create. Start with day old hair and take sections of your hair and twist them up to the side and secure them with bobby pins. Leave a bit of fringe on the sides for a soft look and add a bit of embellishment with pretty clips and jeweled pins if you want some sparkle.
Katarina Graham was spotted at Comic-Con with a side bun. This is a creative switch to a classic style. Perfect for thick hair and best accomplished with day old hair. Just brush you hair to one side and form a bun. This is another style that can be dressed up with some bling for special occasions. The placement of the bun draws attention to Katarina’s mysterious hazel eyes and perfect features.
Christina Aguilera is known for changing her hair color and style. At the premier of her fifth womens fragrance, Royal Desire, she had stunning platinum blonde hair done in bouncy curls. Her gown was designed to reflect the shape of her new fragrance’s bottle. You can have this look with hot rollers, setting gel and an anti-frizz product. Finish with an extra hold setting spray and glosser and you too can have red carpet looks.
Rihanna said she had her colorist give her bright red hair for something different. This style is a very flowing and feminine updo that is pulled together with a pink polka dot scarf ties in a very stylish bow. This style is messy yet chic and is a good option if your hair is medium length or you are trying to grow it out and are in that in between stage.
Julianne Hough shows us at the CMA awards that layered medium hair can be chic. Use your curling iron to form loose ringlets and use a styling paste to get a piecey look. This style is good for the red carpet and work. A medium layered cut is one of the most versatile cuts around and looks good on almost all women.
Ashley Greene of Twilight has newly colored chocolate brunette hair sparked with red highlights. This style shows us that brown is not boring and you can choose from copper fire to bright red to give your brunette hair life and dimension. To get this loose style all you need is a round brush, a blow dryer, a medium barrel curling iron, anti-frizz spray and a medium hold setting spray.
Justin Timberlake would look good any way he wore his hair, and he proves it this week with a buzz cut. Although he is hiding his head under a hat, it would seem that once again Justin is on the forefront of mens fashion. Buzz cuts have moved from the Armed Forces back to the mainstream and are easy to wear and easy to care for.
That’s it for this week of Hairstyles in the News. Did you see something that caught your eye? Maybe it is a new color or a new style you’d like to wear for a night out. Make an appointment with your stylist and let her tailor a look just for you.
