Celebrity hairstyles set the tone and mood for upcoming seasons. With the holidays right around the corner we are beginning to see more tailored and sophisticated styles. Curls and glamor are back in Hollywood and this week we see some very beautiful vintage looks straight out of the 1940’s. White blonde hair is also in style and several celebrities are sporting the color this season. If you are a dark brunette, you may want to only go as far as a gold blonde to prevent damage to your hair. Take a look at what the celebrities are up to this week and see if there is a style or color you want to try out.
Beyonce is seen here with a very feminine and classy 1940’s retro hairstyle. The side part and tight curls are hallmarks of the classic WWII era styles. You can get this look at home with hot rollers and a strong hold hair spray. After the rollers cool down, remove them from your hair and brush out the curls shaping them to give your hair a smooth sleek look with bouncy curls. Add some shine spray and you’ll be ready for your next party.
Annette Benning proves that just because you’re over 50 you don’t have to wear boring hair. You can have this look with a bit of styling wax or paste and use your fingers as styling tools. Her highlights bring some depth and spark to her style and bring out her beautiful blue eyes.
Katherine McPhee’s short style compliments her heart shaped face and the color is one of the most popular hair colors this season. If you look closely you will see that her platinum blonde has gold lowlights that keep the color from looking one dimensional. Tucked behind her ears, this style accents her dark sultry eyes.
Owen Wilson’s signature laid back style is reflected in his shaggy hair cut. This is an easy style for any man to wear and can go from beach to boardroom. With the right styling products, your man can wear this style like Owen in this picture, or use some gel or mousse for more control and structure.
Ellen Pompeo has another classic 1940’s inspired retro look. This style works well with a layered bob set in hot rollers and is a nice change from a straight look. Use a bit of root lift to keep from going flat and set your hair with a styling spray.
Tia Mowry looks lovely and polished in her classic bob and bangs. This look has popular since its debut in the 1920’s. Today’s bobs give you several styling choices and Tia shows us the even a classic shape can be modern and chic.
Sarah Michelle Geller’s updo is a mixture of braids and twists. This is a hot look this season and you can be as creative with as you want. For this look part your hair on the side and take a small section and braid it against your scalp. Twist the back up and secure it with pins. Wispy tendrils give this style a soft feminine look.
Katherine Heigl gives us one more for the WWII inspired styles this week. Pulled to one side and set in hot rollers, this style would look good on almost all face shapes. You could put a pretty jeweled clip on the side for an extra bit of glamor. The key to this hairstyle is an extra hold spray to keep it in place.
That’s it for this week’s Hairstyles in the News. If you found a style or color you want to try, make an appointment with your stylist and let her help you find one that will fit your face shape and hair texture. She can keep you looking good and ready for the holiday parties that are sure to fill up your busy schedule this season.
