Hairstyles in the News October 17, 2011

Welcome to this week’s Hairstyles in the News! This week several celebrities wore their hair long and wavy. This is a very feminine look, but if you don’t have long hair you can get this look with human hair extensions. Human hair extensions can be styled just like your natural hair and stand up to the heat of curling and flat irons.

Another popular look is the deep side part updo. The key to this look is the use of bobby pins to hold everything together. Styling products are also essential to protect your hair and keep your style looking great. One trend celebrities are really taking to is dark roots. By having their roots colored dark, they can hide any telltale gray hairs that may have sprouted up. Once a serious faux pas, dark roots are now on trend. So let’s move on to this week’s celebrity styles.

Hilary Duff began her career as a Disney sweetheart and has grown up to be a very polished and talented young woman. At a recent appearance on Good Morning America she wore her hair long with soft waves. This style is easy to obtain, simply use some styling mousse when you blow dry your hair and a large barrel curling iron. Use your fingers to tousle the waves, spritz on some holding spray and shine spray, and you’re done.

Zoe Saldana side updo at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic was very flattering to her facial shape and features. To get this look make a deep side part and pull a small section from the part to your ear. Pull your hair off to one side and gather it at the nape of your neck. Twist your hair loosely and secure it behind your ear with bobby pins or u-shaped pins. Use a large barrel curling iron to create soft waves to frame your face.

Gweneth Paltrow hardly has to worry about looking older. She looks great no matter how she wears her hair, and she is just one of the celebrities who have discovered the newest trend of dark roots. Instead of getting their roots touched up to match their blonde color, celebrities are now having their stylist color their roots dark. This is to give them a more youthful appearance and hide any stray gray hairs that may have made an appearance.

Audrina Patridge’s Ombre hair at the Saints Row: The Third premiere goes from a deep caramel brown to a light golden blonde. This trend has been popular for quite some time. Today you can wear it like Audrina or have the colors reversed and have the top of your hair lighter than the ends. Either way is very chic and looks great.

That’s it for this week. As the season starts to change to cooler weather, expect to see new and different styles being worn by celebrities. Keep your eyes out for new trends, and remember to ask your stylist to recommend products and styles to fit your hair texture, length and thickness.
