Cate Blanchett Rocks the Red Carpet

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is seen here attending the premiere of ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ in Sydney, Australia. And Cate may not look like she has been uber styled, but she looks glamorous as ever. Cate has gone with a very simple hairstyle for this event, and is wearing her generally fine and straight hair down for the evening in a look that requires little maintenance or styling.

The key to this look is once again in the cut, and with fine hair you want to go for a cut that has enough texture to give your hair the illusion of body and movement. Volume is not necessary here as with the right cut you can finish with a look that is simple, but as you can see with Cate, very sleek and sexy. With a textured and layered cut, you can enjoy minimal styling, as if the cut is done right, you can simply wash, blow dry and go.

Jennifer Connolly Sleeks it Back

Jennifer Connolly Hairstyle

Jennifer Connolly is seen here leaving the ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien’ show at NBC Studios in New York City. And though Jennifer has been under the radar lately, she won’t be for long as her new movie ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ is due out in theatres December 12th and so she is currently hot on the promo trail for it as we speak. Jennifer is one of those girls with classic beauty, exquisite bone structure, and gorgeous sleek black hair to boot. Yes, she is one of those that does not have to worry too much about styling as she just has that natural grace and beauty we all love to envy. Here even Jennifer has not gone to too much trouble with her hair as she has sleeked it back in an easy and elegant ponytail for her appearance on Conan O’Brien. Again, this look simply proves that you don’t have to go to great lengths to look fabulous. To achieve this look, you can work with second day hair if you want, but fresh clean hair always works wonders for a sleek and shiny finish. On towel dried hair, run some styling wax in your hair to just give your hair enough extra bend to move as you like. Blow dry your hair with a flat paddle brush from root to tips to maximize sheen.

Create a middle part and then simply pull your hair into a low ponytail securing with a clear elastic. If you have any of those ponytail bumps, use a wide toothed comb to smooth them out. Try and stay away from the fine tooth comb as this will lead to more bumps along the way. If you really need some extra shine or are heading out for the night, a little glossy serum will be just the thing to add that extra glamour for an all night shine.

Jessica Lowndes from the glamorous Beverly Hills: 90210 is seen here shopping till she drops at the elite BeBe boutique in Beverly Hills. Jessica is one of the bad girls on the revised prime time drama, and we normally see her with a cropped blunt bob that shows off a little vixen side to her addict manners. Here, Jessica has gone voluptuous and luscious and is showing off some long locks that are vamped out in gorgeous waves and curls.

To get this look, you will want to use texturizing conditioner and shampoo during your shower to give you some extra flex and bend for styling. Use a curl enhancing mousse on towel dried hair and distribute product from roots to tips. Blow dry your hair from roots to ends with a round soft bristle brush, paying extra attention the crown as this will give you some nice lift and volume at your crown. You will then use medium sized hot rollers on your ends, and roll your hair in two inch sections, but only up to your chin. This will give your hair some lovely curl and bounce without your hair shaft weighing down your curls.

Isla’s Hair Went to Splitsville!

Isla Fisher Hairstyles


In most cases we reserve the term splitsville for the town that the torrid couples of Tinseltown visit when their relationships come to a screeching halt. In this case, we are using splitsville in reference to the bad things that are happening to the ends of Isla’s long locks. She always manages to look so fresh, but here she is seen with messy bedhead red hair and some split ends that are way beyond out of control.

This is one of those cases girls where you go to the closet and pull out your cute hat collection so that if you really need to skip both the wash AND the style, you only need to tuck your hair, and your messy ends, into the cute hat of your choice. And since many of us are living in the colder temperatures, we need to take extra precautions when it comes to hair care and hair maintenance. The ends have a tendency to dry out faster than our roots, and in colder temps, the pace at which this occurs seems to be exponentially faster than in the summer months.

Be sure to treat your hair with hot oil treatments at least once a week, and these are treatments that you can do with an at-home kit from your local pharmacy. Conditioning your hair every day with your daily wash is another must, and you can use anti-humectant spray on your ends before you head out. This will lock the cuticle over your hair shaft and give it an extra seal of protection before you go out and brave the elements. Split ends can happen to anyone, and in any weather, no matter how great your cut is. Preventive measures are your best defense!

Paris Hilton is seen here in all her single glory as she heads out of the hip L.A. nightclub, Bardot, after a hot and heavy night on the town. And you can always tell from her wardrobe alone when Paris is living the single life, as gone are the days of elegant Furstenberg wrap dresses as dictated her couplehood with Benji Madden. Yes, Paris is back to her mini pleated skirt days and all the vamp and sex appeal that goes with it. She is seen here wearing a red leather mini kilt and a matching tartan top that is anything but conservative Scottish country. And here she has styled her hair in a vampy, sexy, beaudacious curl style to add to her sexy factor.

To get this look, you want to use texturizing shampoo in the shower as this will train your hair to bend and hold. Use curl enhancing mousse from root to tip on towel dried hair, and ensure the product is distributed evenly. Blow dry your hair from root to tip with a round soft bristle brush, and pay special attention at the roots at the crown to maximize some lift and volume. You will then set your hair in hot rollers, but only roll your curls up to your chin. This will give you a fun, flirty flounce that you can take out and last all night long. Finger comb your curls out and give your head a shake for a voluminous sexy head of cascading curls.
