Rachel Bilson Gets Back to Work

Rachel Bilson Hairstyles

Here is a girl that just does pretty no matter where she goes. Rachel Bilson fashionista and sweetheart extraordinaire was spotted here stopping by Cocalaca studios in Los Angeles the other day for an audition. Sounds exciting, this may mean that we actually see her in something again in the near future. Seen with script and pencil in hand, Rachel appeared with a simple black dress and shoulder bag and her gorgeous smile to pair. And of course, auditions are like interviews, so you want to look fresh and pretty without going too over the top, which is exactly what Rachel did with her hair as well. Simple yet beautiful and sexy, for this audition she went easy on the hairstyling, and stepped out in a casual loose wave that complements her pretty features. With just enough volume for sex appeal, this is a pretty easy and sexy look.

To get this look, 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 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.

Katie Holmes is On a Mission

Katie Holmes Hairstyle

We don’t often see this fashionista in the dressed down look, but here she is pulling out the stops in grunge for some errand running in Manhattan. And she just proves here that you don’t need to be dressed to the nines to look like you are. I love this look on Katie, it is a very contemporary spin off of her Dawson’s Creek days when she had that wholesome approach to style, and it is that lovable look that we all adored. So here she is making grunge look fabulous in some oversized shades, rugged canvas boots, leggings, and a red plaid top to show that less really can be more. All of this paired with a cute but sexy ponytail for a look that can so obviously work any day of the week. This just goes to show that yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself, and you can style yourself very easily even when you are running errands uber cas.

To get this look, dampen your soft bristle brush as you pull this ponytail back, and let it sit nice and low on the back of your crown like Katie has here. If you have bangs, bend your bangs under ever so slightly with your flat iron or curling iron, or sweep them loosely into the ponytail like Katie. The cute part of the sexy look, comes with the outfit you pair it with. If you pull off the right look like Katie 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 errand running crowd, they are the kind of looks you want. This look will only take a few minutes, so go ahead and sleep in a little since you won’t have to worry about your hair. You can arrive on time and still look fabulous and nobody will ever be the wiser.

Gisele Bundchen Mom Extraordinaire

Gisele Bundchen Hairstyles

Ah yes, here is just one girl that can’t do ugly even if she wanted to. Guess that’s what makes her a supermodel. And here she is looking ever so gorgeous in all her mama glory as she clings to her precious boy Benjamin Brady while shooting a photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar sporting a pair of denim cutoffs. Oh if only all of us could look that good post baby in a pair of shorty shorts. But that’s why she is Gisele. And you know, the casual look gets quite a bad rap, but you don’t need to have Gisele’s team of stylists and gorgeous figure to pull it off. As you can see, even for a photoshoot with Harper’s it’s all in the casual here, but effortless cas is the marker of this look.

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. Then, use a 1 ½ “ curling iron to put some bend and wave in your hair, 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. Add a pair of sexy cutoffs to the look and you will definitely be turning heads, no room for insecurities here, so leave them at the door when you head out.

Allesandra Ambrosio Proves Why She’s a Supermodel

Allesandra Ambrosio Photos
The ever so gorgeous Victoria’s Secret supermodel Allesandra Ambrosio was spotted in the streets of New York City while out and about running some errands. And oh if only WE could look this good when we are heading out and about to get things done like upgrade our phones, pick up our cleaning, and the like. Allesandra was enjoying a lovely day off in sunny but cool New York City with an off the shoulder beige sweater and skin tight jeans as she headed off to the Motorola store to upgrade her Blackberry. She was seen behind the counters actually inputting her own information, more than likely to maintain her privacy with the paparazzi and nosy ears wandering around the store catching her every word. But rest assured, you don’t need to have six feet long legs to look as great as Allesandra, you just need a great cut and a smidge of styling know how. But hey, if you want to be as bold as this supermodel, toss on a pair of super skinny jeans and you will definitely be turning some heads as well.

To get the look that she has here, you want to start off with the same layered cut. Ask your stylist for large concave layers around your face as these layers will be used to frame your face and to also provide some volume to your luscious locks. Sleek and sexy with just a smidge of volume is the look you are going for here, so 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. If you want to add just a hint of volume around your face, you can curl the ends of your layers with a wide barrel curling iron, this will still maintain that gorgeous shine, and give you a little bit of a flirty wave that will turn heads all day or all night long.

Leighton Meester Lightens Up

Leighton Meester Hair Styles

The oh so fabulous Blair Waldorf from the Upper East Side was spotted attending the “Date Night” premiere at the Ziegfield Theatre in New York City wearing a stunning Giambattista dress. And as usual, Leighton Meester was in all her fashionable glory looking fabulous with some lightened locks, and a smile that is much less Queen B, and much more feminine and likable. I love this look on her and that she is moving lighter as the seasons move forward, and she is just looking absolutely fabulous in a hairstyle that is this year’s trend. Leighton here is looking about as fabulous as it gets, with gorgeous brunette colored locks with butter scotch colored highlights that have been styled into gorgeous waves. And this is one girl who it seems no matter how she is dressed, her style is one that is definitely envied. And she can certainly pull just about any look off off. And 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 the beauty version of the boyfriend jean. 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.
