Lily Allen Gets Sleek and Chic

Lily Allen Hairstyle

Since her minor breakdown over the past few years following a torrid breakup and a miscarriage, Lily Allen has had more than a few glamorous days. But in the last few months we have watched her pick herself up and dust herself off beautifully and as she focuses on her career, the Lily glam is coming back slowly but surely. Here she is spotted in all her newly pregnant glory while she enjoys some boutique shopping in Paris in skyscraper heels, and it looks like her infamous pixie bob has made a comeback. This is one look that I have always loved on Lily, 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. 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.

Jennifer Garner Glams It Up in the Wee Hours

Jennifer Garner Hair Styles

Jennifer Garner is seen here looking more fabulous before dawn than….well, probably just about anybody. And the reason for this on this rainy early New York morning is that she is on her way to The View, a show that starts working well before many of the rest of us. We know she is one of America’s sweethearts, so we just can’t hate her for looking this great this early in the morning. And while her super glossy wavy locks are certainly enviable, as are her budget and styling team, you too can have this look. You might want to keep in mind however that if you have a pre-dawn appointment like Jennifer did here, you will want to give yourself some time. If however you are simply wanting a shiny glamorous look for day or night, this one will definitely turn heads for you. If you 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. You can also brush the curls out to get sleek waves like Jennifer has here, and add some spritzes of glossing serum to give it that gorgeous shine.


Kate Moss Sleeks it Back

Kate Moss New Hairstyle

She may be a retired supermodel, but you would never guess by looking at her. Kate Moss isn’t exactly a cover girl anymore, but this is more by choice than anything else. She still keeps herself busy designing clothes and showing up on the town looking gorgeous as ever.. Kate was spotted arriving at the Dorchester Hotel in London for a night out on the town, and she decided to show off her puffy fur coat by going minimalist on her hair in a sleek pulled back bun. If you are running short on getting ready time for your own night out, choose a minimalist look with a bun like this and you will be en pointe for Fall’s hottest beauty trend. Complement your look by going a little wilder on the fashion, and you won’t need to spend hours on your hair to turn heads.

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 Kate has here, and use some texturizing shampoo and conditioner that will hold the look. Then, Kate has simply pulled back her hair in a sexy ponytail. Take your ponytail and twist it into either a low bun at the back of your neck, or a high bun at the top of your crown, depending on your personal preference, and secure with a few bobby pins. You don’t want to fuss too much with product either here, as this clean and tidy. If you want to add a little extra shine, some glossing spritzes will do just the trick for a uber glam night out.


Audrina Patridge Makes Up for Lost Time

Audrina Patridge Hairstyles

And though she may be a favorite on Dancing With the Stars for never missing a beat, Audrina Patridge from The Hills is just as human as the rest of us apparently and is prone to a late morning or two herself. Here she is seen rushing into the Dancing With the Stars rehearsal studios after running late, but she is certainly doing it fashionably. Arriving on set with supersized shades and squeaky clean hair, Audrina is not going to let a late morning frazzle her, and nor should you. Yes, even you can look this great after some morning rushing, and it’s easier than you think.

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. If you have a few extra minutes, you can quickly whip a curling iron to add some fluffy bend, but not too much. To do so, just use a 1 ½ “ curling iron 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.

Supermodel Supermum Claudia Schiffer Takes Tots to School

Claudia Schiffer

Most of the time, seeing prints and florals put together makes one want to wince, but when you are looking at Claudia Schiffer in such a getup, you can’t help but wonder if this is one of those new trends you want to try. You don’t. Claudia Schiffer can pull it off because she is Claudia Schiffer, and if you were spotted toting your kids to school in an outfit like this, you might just get that sympathetic head tilt and frown. Or you could try the trend and see how it goes, but chances are you just won’t rock it the way Claudia Schiffer has here. With an easy breezy blowout hairstyle to boot, you can see why she is one of the most sought after supermodels still today, despite the fact that she is enjoying mommyhood to the hilt.

This is a very easy style and simply depends on a good cut, ask your stylist for face framing layers here, and a simple wash and go should do the trick. For added staying power during the day, use some texturizing serum before you blow dry, and blow dry with a round bristle brush, making sure you lift at the roots for volume, and frame your layers towards your face. Use a flat iron to sleek ends out if you prefer long and straight, and also use it on your bangs to sweep them over to the side. A sexy side part paired with an attitude of, your hair will go where your day does, will ensure this look lasts all day, and easily into the evening hours as well.
