Agyness Deyn Chills Out in New York

Supermodel extraordinaire Agyness Deyn is spotted here enjoying a little me time in New York City. She was running some errands and hanging out in her fave NYC hot spots, and transported herself easily on her cute little bike. And you have to know that only supermodels like Agyness Deyn can get away with riding a bike in New York heat in a skirt that is short enough to turn plenty of heads, which I am sure she did. Nonetheless, Agyness pulled it off, and with a heck of a lot of grace to boot. And this is a girl that proves that short hair doesn’t have to be difficult to maintain, as it seems she never seems to have the same hairstyle twice, proving that short hair is not only easy to maintain, but versatile at the same time.

You can get this look, and this super versatile hairstyle, by simply 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. You can’t see Agyness’s crown layers here as she has sleeked them into her overall style for a day look that is easy to maintain on the bike.

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. For some extra shine for a night out, you can spritz on some glossing serum for a shiny, sexy finish that will instantly glam up any night on the town.

Rachel McAdams Thousand Watt Smile

Rachel McAdams is seen here in all her smiling glory as she and rapper 50 Cent film scenes together in New York City for their upcoming comedy “Morning Glory”.Rachel was spotted getting very excited and running around happily after meeting and giving her business card to 50 Cent outside his hotel, while Fiddy arrived in a Cadillac Escalade with his name on the license plate.

And as you can see here, Rachel McAdams is styled in a gorgeous way, simple yet elegant, proving once again that a ponytail can be worked pretty hard no matter what the day brings you. She is looking sexy and elegant in a straight lined skirt, fitted top, and a cute but sexy ponytail for a look that can so obviously work in the office.

This just goes to show that yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself. 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 Rachel has here. Then you just need to bend your bangs under ever so slightly with your flat iron or curling iron. This is the cute part of the sexy look, the sexy comes with the outfit you pair it with.

If you pull off the right look like Rachel 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 office 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 arrive a few minutes late looking THIS hot, you may be surprised at the positive reaction.

Rachel Bilson is Glowing

Rachel Bilson Hairstyles
Ah yes, there is nothing like a brand spanking new engagement ring to put a long overdue smile on a girl’s face, and Rachel Bilson is no exception. Here she is in Los Angeles doing some house hunting for her and her new husband to be, and as usual, this style icon is dressed to perfection. Pulling off a casual little black dress, Rachel is showing off a thousand watt smile to match her thousand watt diamond ring. And she has gone a little dressy in the hair, but elegantly enough that her long chestnut locks look casual as well. And whether you have easily tamable hair or not, this look of long and loose waves is so hot right now, and very easy to accomplish.

To get this look like Rachel Bilson, use texturizing shampoo and conditioner, and you will want to blow dry with a round bristle brush. Blow dry your hair about 95%, and when it is still slightly damp, you can set your hair in large sized Velcro rollers to create this wonderful volume that Rachel has here. Let your rollers set for about 30 minutes, and then blast some heat on them to finish the drying and lock in that volume.

When your hair has cooled from this blast, take the rollers out and brush out your hair with your soft bristle brush. The rollers will work to give you some volume, but don’t always allow for a wavy curl, so if you want a little more wave in your hair, use a large barrelled curling iron to lock in the sections you want more vamp appeal. The end result? A lovely voluptuous mane with just enough wave and volume to look sexy, but not too much that you are over the top.

Michelle Trachtenberg Keeps Us Guessing With Gossip Girl

Michelle Trachtenberg
And here we have the every so lovely Michelle Trachtenberg appearing once again on the set of Gossip Girl, leading us to believe that some more of her trouble is in store for our favourite Upper East Siders. In the first season of Gossip Girl, we saw Michelle blast New York with her icy persona, and she returned last season as a bad girl gone good. A little too good, in the “I love Jesus, don’t you?” kind of way. And it looks like she is going to keep us guessing with her real plans for Upper Manhattan, as we see her returning here on set for the upcoming season. And this look she has here does not tell us very much in the way of what we can wait for from her.

Here Michelle is not exactly her former sexy vamp sinking her claws into the city, but she is not exactly sending off the Christian Polyanna vibes any longer. Does this happy medium in her style mean that she is going to surprise us yet again? Who knows, but what Michelle is doing with this ponytail is a great thing, as it shows that yes, even a second day hair day ponytail can look both sleek AND chic, whether you are taking it day or night.

This look is easy to accomplish, particularly since you are going to skip your shampoo and do this with second day hair. For your front section, take a fine tooth comb dipped in water, and create a razor sharp part about 2-3 inches long. Then, comb the remaining section on the back of your crown, and tease it lightly to give you a bit of height and volume at the back of your head. Use your fine tooth comb to sleekly comb your sides to the back, gathering your back crown section together with your two sides.

Secure at the nape of your neck with a clear elastic, and give the back section a spritz of extra hold hairspray. Sweep your bangs to the side in either direction of your part, however you feel most comfortable, and secure with a pin behind your ear. Finish the look with a little spritzing of hair gloss, and you have yourself a super easy hairstyle that will look and stay great no matter WHERE you take it all day or all night

Ali Larter Does a Bang Up Job

Ali Larter
Here is the always ever so gorgeous Ali Larter looking stunning at the Cinema Society and MCM screening of ‘Obsessed’ at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. We haven’t seen too much of Ali lately, but when we do, does she ever impress. Ali does a bang up job in the movie playing a temp that takes a liking to a co-worker, which is all well and good. If said co-worker isn’t married to someone as fabulous as Sharon, a character played by Beyonce. Ali Larter the obsessed type? Never in real life, but she certainly did a good job making the point in this film. And when she appeared on the red carpet for the premiere in this particular get up, she certainly proved that she was a force to be reckoned with. Ali Larter and her infamous bangs are one look that will never change, and that is of no surprise to us. Why? Ali’s bangs are almost signature to her personal look right now, so why should she consider changing something that isn’t broken?

If you are looking for a switch to your look, but don’t want to take too many bold steps, follow in the likes of signature face framing statements like Ali, and yes, even Beyonce. Keep in mind that blunt bangs are a thing of the past, instead go for longer fringe bangs that are cut mildly uneven. This uneven look is a little bit lighter on the face frame than the former trend of blunt bangs that would weigh a face down.

Ask your stylist to cut just below your eyebrows as this makes for a versatile look where you can even pull those sexy bangs back and make them disappear if you like. Once they are cut, if you want to go for an everyday banged out look, clamp a flat iron at the base, and bend them into a slight curve. Comb through them once you have done that to avoid the “mall” look, and squeeze a pinch of pomade on the ends at either side to frame your face beautifully.
