Little J is really growing up before our eyes, and this is a girl that will definitely be losing the Little J status if she keeps showing up to parties looking like this. Here she is with a look that could not be more cutting edge, and is glamorous fashion mixed with a little bit of age appropriate edge. Gotta say, love it Little J and keep it coming. For the sake of fashion, Taylor Momsen arrived for a taping of MTV’s “It’s On with Alexa Chung” in a long green collared shirt, thigh highs, and heels underneath a long navy green fur coat, and she looks uber fab. And I just love how long her hair is getting, as it is making her chic look even more versatile. And here for her appearance on the MTV video, Taylor chose to veer from her usual straight and sleek mane, and complemented her stunning attire with a sleek look that is neither too wavy or too straight. It’s all in the casual here, but casual elegance is the marker of this look, and you can get away with second day hair with this one if you want, or wash it and texturize it as you go to dirty it up a bit.
To get this look, you want to have a layered cut with long concave layers cut that angle toward your features rather than away from them. Use texturizing shampoo and conditioner to give your hair some bend, and blow dry your hair from roots to ends with a round and soft bristle brush. After your blowdry, you can run some styling pomade through your hair to give it some additional texture and movement.
Then, use a 1 ½ “ curling iron to put some bend and wave in your hair, but here you really just want to run the iron through your hair, and not focus too much on curl. Keep the curling on for just a second or two, and create a lovely, soft wave that will last all day. You will then brush these waves out for a soft almost ethereal look, and a sexy but not too fussy side part will add instant vamp appeal to your overall look of casual elegance. Finish the look with some extra hold hairspray on your wavy ends and along your part.
