New Year’s Eve, why not take inspiration from some of your favorite
stars for some awesome holiday hair looks? We’ve got the steps to
how you can get each of these lovely ladies’ awesome ‘dos!
GL, we heart Elle Fanning (Check out our interview with her in the
Dec/Jan issue!), so we weren’t surprised to see her take
this amazing hair risk at the 15th
Annual Hollywood Films Gala this October. But can a style like this
work for a party? We think yes!
your hair is divided, braid each ponytail separately and fasten it
with a hair tie. Then, lay each braid over the top of your head
parallel with each other, and fasten them with bobby pins. If your
hair is long, like Elle’s, you can pin the extra hair up in the
your hair’s not long enough for the full-on Heidi look, you can
still get the cute effect of braids by creating a tiny braid on one
side of your head and pulling it back into a ponytail, or just
securing it and leaving the rest of your hair down.
bangs + curls
the L.A. premiere of “Puss in Boots,” Bella Thorne showed us that
bangs can be both cute and edgy. We also love her ringlets and the
super cute barrette she used to pull them back.
achieve Bella’s look, you need to have bangs, but you can still get
super cute curls without them! If you have bangs and want them to
look as full as Bella’s try blow-drying them on your dryer’s cool
setting. Hot air on your forehead will make your skin greasy, and
heat can damage your hair color. For the rest of the look, let your
hair air dry naturally.
Bella’s sassy curls, try using a medium-sized barrel (two or three
inches in diameter is perfect). If you don’t have a curling iron,
ask Mom to help you with good old-fashioned hot rollers! Finish the
look with a cute, sparkly accessory like Bella’s clip or a jeweled
it to Beyonce to turn a ponytail into a red-carpet look! A classic
pony becomes instantly elegant when tied loosely at the nape of your
neck, slightly to the side. Beyonce’s hair is also super-sleek, so
try smoothing a gloss over your tresses before pulling it back!
get B’s ombre-inspired color, try using clip-in extensions that are
a few shades darker (or lighter) than your natural shade and pulling
them into the pony with the rest of your hair.
Lemon Breeland can often be a bit sour, Jaime King’s impeccable
smile and beauty at the 2011 MOCA Gala proves that she’s nothing
like her character on Hart of Dixie. Jaime shows us that short
hair can be impossibly chic, especially when paired with a bold red
style works best for girls with medium to short hair that’s cut in
a bob, either straight or asymmetrical. Jaime’s hair is
asymmetrical, so the back of her hair has a light wave, while the
front has an old Hollywood-style curl.
get waves like Jaime’s, try using a sculpting mousse while your
hair is damp (not soaking, but not too dry). A mousse will add
texture and a slight wave to your hair without making it overly
crunchy (unless you use too much!). Jaime’s hair looks perfectly
touchable, so don’t overdo it with product. If you shower at night,
twist 2-inch sections of damp hair into small spirals and pin them
back. When you wake up, you’ll have instant waves.
Any size curling iron will do to get Jaime's curl, depending on how thick
your hair is and how tight you want the ringlet to be. To get the
side-swept look, curl only the lower half of your hair, or the part
starting at the apple of your cheek.
