Kelly Bensimon Puts the Claws Away

Kelly Bensimon Hair Styles

Here is one hot mama putting the claws away from the set of The Real Housewives of New York City, Kelly Bensimon is showing the world how she keeps looking so great. She’s spotted here jogging more than a few blocks between SoHo and Greenwich Village in New York city wearing a skin tight black running outfit with Nike runners. Kelly is one of those girls that suffers with natural beauty, so even a quick little ponytail for her morning jaunt is all she needs to look fabulous, and you can too. Yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself, even when you are hitting the New York City streets at the crack of dawn.

To style, dampen your soft bristle brush as you pull this ponytail back, and let it sit nice and high on the back of your crown like Kelly has here. If you pull off the right look like Kelly has here and choose simple pieces that are casual, but fitted to your size and complement your figure, you can get away with the ponytail. Doing just that will ensure that if you are getting looks from the street crowd, they are the kind of looks you want. Go ahead and sleep in a little since you won’t have to worry about your hair. Even if you start your morning jog a few minutes late looking THIS hot, you may be surprised at the positive reaction.

Fearne Cotton Goes Retro

Fearne Hairstyles

DJ and television presenter extraordinaire Fearne Cotton is seen here chatting away on her cell after leaving Radio 1 for her morning radio show. This is one girl that is under the radar even in her hometown London, but as you can see that does not stop her from looking fabulous no matter where she is going or what she is doing. Here Fearne is going back to the 80’s in a grunge inspired look that she can pull off because she is just that gorgeous. And she has not paid too much attention to her long blonde blowout, and it is that effortless and carefree style that makes this look so gorgeous. And her appearance is hardly too retro or too casual, but a wonderful blend of casual with some grunge glam accessorizing. And that is a hairstyle that works perfectly with any grunge look.

To get this look, a one length cut with or without bangs will work, and a wash and a blowout is all you need. Use texturizing shampoo and conditioner and this will give your hair a little bit of movement. Run some styling pomade through towel-dried hair making sure to work the product through thoroughly from roots to tips. This will leave you with some beautiful movement upon your finish. You will then blow dry your hair upside down, brushing it out while you do with a flat paddled brush and you want to pay special attention to your roots when you blowdry as this will maximize your volume. After your blowout, create a chic but not too perfect side part, and you are good to go for the day. If you want, you can pinch some of your pomade on your ends to give it some weight and add to your movement, or leave it fresh and fancy free for the rest of the day.


Hayden Panettiere Strikes A Chocolate Look

Hayden Panettiere Hairstyles

Hayden Panettiere isn’t on the radar too much, and this may be because some of her Tinseltown starlet friends are just bigger camera fiends, as we do know that Hayden likes her privacy. So when we see her taking her look to such a dramatic shade in a blink of an eye, sometimes it takes us longer to clue in. For this girl, I have to say this look is nice on her, but I do prefer the blonde. The brunette seems a little too serious for her young years thus far, but it certainly does give her a striking presence, doesn’t it? But this look overall is one you definitely want, as this is a style that is everywhere right now. If you need a change, and haven’t guessed what the deal is with this hair style, then you may want to put some contemporary back into your locks as this long and loose look is today’s most gorgeous trend. It’s everywhere right now.

To get this look, start off by scrunching some pomade or volumizing mousse into your hair. Blow dry with a round bristle brush, or you can wind sections around your hair if you prefer. This winding effect will make your waves a little more swingy than usual. You can use a curling iron to set stronger waves once you have done this, but instead of clamping the iron onto your hair, wind the hair section around the barrel of the curling iron. This way the ends won’t curl as tight, and they will stick out just enough to give you this pretty tousled look. After you have finished curling, shake your hair out and finger comb it as you go through the day, and you will have long luscious waves lasting all day, and into the night.

She’s Not a Doctor, She Just Plays One on TV.

Olivia Wilde Hairstyles

Dr. House’s hot shot number 13 , played by Olivia Wilde is seen here hanging out on the set of the hit tv show and showing that even in between takes she is gorgeous as ever. Yep, this is one lady who’s got features galore, and with her perfect bone structure, naturally bone straight hair, it is easy to see why we all just love to hate her for being so beautiful. And if she’s even a tenth as smart as her character on “House” well then, she simply must be the whole package. Here she is seen on the set of the show showing us that the simplest, sleekest style can also often be the sexiest. That’s right, long straight locks are the hairstyle version of the boyfriend jean, and have been a hit since the ‘70’s, and it doesn’t look like this trend is leaving any time soon.

To get the look that Olivia has here, you want to start off with the same layered cut that she has here. Use some straightening serum on towel dried hair, and blow dry your hair with a flat paddle brush pulling your hair straight as you dry. Use a flat iron to sleek your hair out as much as you can. When you are flat ironing, you want to pin the top sections of your hair up first, and flat iron the bottom sections for maximum fullness and all over straightness. After you have flat ironed your entire head, spritz your hair with some anti-humectant. Immediately following this, you will want to flat iron your hair again, and this will lock in the humectant, and give your hair some beautiful shine. It will also seal the cuticle and ensure that your hair stays straight and glam all night long.

Michelle Williams Dazzles the Crowd on Premiere Night

Michelle Williams Hairstyles

Ever since the death of the late and amazing Heath Ledger, we have not seen much of this girl, mom to his precious daughter Michelle Williams. And for about a year or so after his death, we saw this girl walking the streets of New York with nothing but grief and pain in her eyes. But Michelle is proving here that despite his death, life does go on, and she’s been given more than enough reason to smile again, and here we see her at the premiere of “Shutter Island” at the Ziegfield Theater in New York City looking like her old self. Dressed in a killer dress and showing off her mega watt smile, Michelle Williams has the light back in her eyes again, and it’s certainly been a long time coming. But you don’t need to have natural Manhattan style looks to look as great as she does, because this look is much more effortless than you may think. Yes, not only does this look effortless, but this look IS effortless to achieve with a quick and simple ponytail twist.

You want to start off with clean shiny hair like Michelle has here, and use some texturizing shampoo and conditioner that will hold the look. Then, Michelle has simply pulled back her hair in a sexy ponytail, and not fussed too much about flyaways or concise neatness as this is a bun that is tres chic by being tres minimal. Take your ponytail and twist it into a low bun at the back of your neck, and secure with a few bobby pins. You don’t want to fuss too much with product either here, as this clean and mussy look is the one you are going for. Michelle proves here that if you want to go super cas as well, you can do so, and do so however you like and have a sexy, chic, and elegant look you can take all day or all night. With the bangs you can sweep to the side and pin behind your ear, or like Michelle just use a curling iron and add some wave to them. No muss no fuss, and anything but sleek and slicked back. This is a look that is as relaxed and sexy as you are…go for it!
