Ashley Greene’s curly hairstyle was to die for at the People’s Choice Awards on January, 11 2012! She paired a racy leather dress and black heels that completed the look. This Twilight Saga vixen definitely stood out with her non-uniformed soft curls as she worked the red carpet at the Nokia theater in Los Angeles. Curly Hairstyles in 2012 are here to stay and with a new twist. Curls are a great way to change up your look and in less then an hour you can give your hair a lot of personality.

How to get this look: This style only requires five materials, a 1 1/2 inch curling iron, a clip to section off your hair, a wide toothed comb, a light smoothing serum and a light hair spray. It’s important to start with clean dry hair before beginning. Some types of curls look great with a good amount of product but when wanting to create “It’s hard not to touch” curls, less product is best.

First, section off about a 2 inch section at the base and then clip the rest of the hair up at the crown. Lightly spray the 2 inch section of hair with hair spray. Take a small section of the hair and wrap it in a spiral around the curling iron. When curling hair this way, point the curling iron in a downward position and do not use the clamp on the curling iron. Simply wrap the small section of hair around the curling iron and hold for a few seconds. Let curl fall and do not touch or brush the hair immediately after curling. Repeat until that whole section is complete and then section off another 2 inch section and repeat the same steps until the whole head is complete. Before curling the very top section, part the hair the way you would like it to fall. When doing a middle part, try not to make it a perfectly strait part. A part that is slightly zigzagged or a little off centered looks best with carefree curls. After finishing the last section, let the last section cool off for a few minutes and then with a wide toothed comb, lightly brush through curls so the curls aren’t separated anymore. To finish the look, take a small amount of smoothing serum and run it through the hair to give it extra shine.

Vanessa Hudgens Waves it Off

Vanessa Hudgens Wavy Hairstyles

Vanessa Hudgens is seen here looking like she doesn’t have a care in the world, but you would never guess that she just split from four year long love Zac Efron. Oh well says the happy twenty something as she moves on with her life, and we love the attitude she takes with her. Though, you have to wonder how well Zac is taking this. Not that anyone would notice, Vanessa is making it very clear just how single she is, and is making sure she looks fabulous while she does so. Can you say she is hoping for a rebound beau under the tree this year? Most likely says the magic 8 ball. But if you want to look this fabulous, you can too, as this long and loose look is today’s most gorgeous trend. It’s everywhere right now.

To get this look, you need a long layered cut that you can work some volume into. Start off by scrunching some pomade or volumizing mousse into damp 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 though you may not have her boyfriend woes, you will have her look of long luscious waves lasting all day, and into the night.

Taylor Swift The Girl With the Curls

Taylor Swift Hairstyle 2011

There is just something oh so refreshing about this girl, no? She has got that all American beauty thing just wrapped right up, and even if you hate the music, you can’t help but love the girl. As if you could hate anything by Miss Swift anyway. What is it about her? She’s that down home goodness that makes this country what it is, is what it is. And she’s gorgeous to boot. This is a look that just about any girl would die for as well, as beautiful curls like this are not easy to come by. Here she has chosen a style that is right in line with her personality and has gone All American girl in a red and white ensemble and hairstyle that pumps up the volume and gives her a seriously soft but romantic edge.

This look is sexy, vampy, and will get you everything you want on any given night on the town. The secrets here are tons of product, tons of curls, and tons of teasing. Start off with curl enhancing shampoo and conditioner, and use a lightweight curling mousse to lock in some extra curl. Run some styling pomade on your palms, and then run them through your hair from front to back. You will then set your hair in pin curls all over your head. Use a blowdryer on low with a diffuser to dry your locks to 100% dry. This may take some time, but the end result will be well worth it. When your curls are dry, spritz some extra hold hairspray on your curls before you take out the pins. The result will be a voluminous head of wavy bouncy curls. You can brush these out to smooth them out, or tease them whichever way you want for a hairstyle that is voluminous, sexy, and vampy for any night on the town. The key to achieving these spirals is to finger play with them until you are happy with them. Taylor likes hers smooth and soft, but you can be as big and bold as you like. Once you get the curls, embrace them, don’t fight ‘em!

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.
