Paula Abdul Pulls it Together

Paula Abdul
Paula Abdul seems to be another one of those ladies that just never seems to look bad, and given the fact that she is in the spotlight so much since her work with American Idol, we can’t be too surprised about that fact. But even after she has stepped down from her reign as judge on American Idol, she still seems to keep it together and pull off uber glam style despite the fact that she’s not so much in the public eye anymore. Here she was spotted arriving back at Burbank airport, looking fabulous and chic as not many do after stepping off a major flight. But Paula has proved that style with comfort doesn’t need to be frumpy, as she has paired some simple fashion pieces with a very chic do. She is looking sexy and elegant in a pair of straight legged jeans and a loose fitting top paired with 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, and you can style yourself very easily even when on long flights and airport busyness.

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 neck like Paula 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 Paula 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. 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.

Did Jessica Alba’s Stylist Take the Day Off?

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba is seen here having what for many of us would just be a normal day, as she goes out and about performing mommy duties with her daughter Honor in Santa Monica. She is one that always seems to look glamorous, so when she is having a day where she is not so glamorous, it kind of ends up looking like a bad hair day. But this is a look that many of us sport while we are performing our own day to day grind, so who are we to judge? And though she is in uber cas mode with a plaid flannel top and her hair piled in the back, she still looks great. Though if I might say so myself, she is kind of starting to look again like she could use a sandwich or two, no? But this is a look that you can pull off as well, as Jessica shows that you can go with an uber cas look and still sexy and chic.

She has simply pulled back her hair in a sexy ponytail, and not fussed too much about flyaways or concise neatness. Had she wanted to amp up her style a little bit, she could have cleaned up her ensemble, perhaps worn something like a fitted tee instead of a loose fitting top, but we can’t blame her for worrying about causes more than her look. If you want to go super cas as well, you can do so, and do so however you like. If you want to be a little stylish and chic, you can do as suggested with a fitted tee over your comfy pants, or a chic fitted zip up hoody is just as cute.

Mischa Barton’s Bad Everything Day

Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton has been having a few personal troubles these days, and it seems to be showing on her. Here she is seen having dinner with her dogs and some friends at the Sant Ambroeus in New York City. Afterwards she was spotted enjoying some people watching whilst smoking a cigarette. And maybe Mischa has forgotten what it means to brush your hair, or that she is paparazzi friendly right now with all of her recent troubles in the looney bin. She was recently released from the hospital after a two week stay where she was under legal direction to not be released until doctors considered her to no longer be a danger to herself or others. Though we don’t know much else about Mischa’s jaunt in the hospital, we do know that her mental health is at best questionable right now. She has returned to work and seems to be coming out of her cave and in the public eye a little bit, but by all looks and accounts here, she still needs a little bit of me time, don’t you think?

This is one hairstyle that we certainly can’t recommend or provide any kind of hints or tips on, other than, don’t try this one yourself. Sometimes celebrities can get away with missing a hair brush on occasion, but this is really a rare occurrence, and not one that you want to try and get away with so soon after your exit from the bin. She just looks worn out in all shapes and forms, and this is definitely a just got out of bed look that you certainly want to avoid. Mischa’s look could be cleaned up very easily by simply taking out whatever elastic or band she has holding this mess together, and sweeping it back into a low ponytail with some mandatory brushing. She would look much less ragged and worn out, but then again, maybe this is the look she’s trying to get us to buy into.

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
