This is one girl that I just love to see out and about these days, as she was once considered one of the dowdiest women in Tinseltown after her homely appearance with the Bridget Jones Diary. And now that the movie made her a household name, her style seems to be almost effortless as she banishes that dowdy look and proves to the world that Bridget was just a character. It seems that no matter where or when she is spotted these days, she is simply knocking them dead. And here she is doing just that while doing a bit of grocery shopping for her holiday festivities. She was seen coming out of the Bay Cities Italian Deli with a bag full of goods looking radiant and happy, and not just because she looks fabulous and chic, but because of the holiday season. And what she is doing here with her look is showing that short hair can really work FOR you if you want to pull off an edgy carefree look this holiday season. And though I haven’t loved too many of Renee’s looks, this is one look that I have always loved on her, and out of all of her looks I think this one suits her the most.
You can get this look first by getting the right cut, so ask your stylist for longer length in the back and at your sides, but get some volume pumped into the top with shaggy layers cut into your crown. To style then, you can use some styling wax on towel dried hair, and blow dry your hair with a round bristle brush. This look is sleek, so you aren’t going to worry too much about volume here. When your hair is dried, spritz some antihumectant spray on your locks, and then run the flat iron over your entire head, bending the ends only slightly for some face framing style.
By using the flat iron, you will lock in the antihumectant so your hair stays straight and sleek all day long, and it also adds some extra shine to that gorgeous style. The blowout as well will give you the gorgeous movement that Renee has here in her hair, and this will keep you looking happy and carefree as you move through the holiday season.
