Mischa Barton’s NOT a Prostitute, She’ll Just Play One on TV

Mischa Barton Pictures
Mischa Barton is one of those fashionistas that has kind of slipped under the radar since her bout in a rehab facility earlier last year. We just haven’t seen or heard too much from her, and many of us have just assumed that she fell off the wagon again, as whenever she did make it back to the spotlight, she never really met up to earlier years fashionista standards. So what gives with Mischa and what is she up to these days, and why does she look like she is selling wares on the street corner? No worries, she has not sunk to new lows in terms of raking in cash for her habits we don’t know about, she is simply dressed in character here as a prostitute for an upcoming guest stint she has on the set of Law and Order. She is playing a street worker who turns to Detective Benson for help in one of those prostitute type life or death decision things. Should be interesting.

For her look with her hair, she went with less skank and more volume, and let the outfit do the talking when it comes to the skank factor. That’s okay as long as we remember that this is all character for her. This is a look though as far as her hair is concerned that is pretty hot right now, and you can get this voluminous hair very easily, though give yourself some extra time here. 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 Mischa has here, without the look of curls. 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. Finish the look with a sexy side part, another hot hair trend this year. 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.

Yes, Even Ashley Greene Dresses Down

Ashley Greene Hairstyles

Here we have Twilight star extraordinaire looking uber cas but uber fab as she has what might be for us just an ordinary day, minus the paparazzi frenzy. For this day, Ashley was just heading out to Starbucks to pick up an iced coffee and was caught looking super sweet as she did so. This is one of those looks that proves once again that you don’t need to always have fabby hair to pull off a glam look, you just need the right smile, and the right ensemble and you can get away with a ponytail super easy. At this stage in the game though, a ponytail isn’t always about just throwing your hair back, unless you want to pull a “just got out of rehab” look vis a vis Mischa Barton. You do need to actually use a brush, and taking a few extra minutes to sleek and shine isn’t going to hurt you either.

For this look though, you may need even less than a few extra minutes. You can get away with second day hair, so save some morning minutes and go without the wash. Dampen your soft bristle brush as you pull this ponytail back, and let it sit nice and high on the back of your crown like Ashley has here. If you have bangs, then you just need to bend your bangs under ever so slightly with your flat iron or curling iron or you can brush them back like Ashley has here. 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 Ashely 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. By doing so, you can even pull this look off at the office if you want. Doing just that will ensure that if you are getting looks from the office crowd, they are the kind of looks you want. Go ahead and sleep in a little since you won’t have to worry about your hair. Even if you arrive a few minutes late looking THIS hot, you may be surprised at the positive reaction. And who doesn’t want to pull off an Ashley Greene look?

Heidi Klum Rocks the Pony

Heidi Klum Hairstyle
Heidi Klum is seen here once again proving just how magnificent she is, and why she is one of the world’s most famous supermodels. The ever so stylish Project Runway host and mom of FOUR bambinos was seen taking some me time after finishing the show, launching two maternity fashion collections, and well, being a mom. So a well deserved break to a massage in Beverly Hills was the only thing on her agenda this week, and even her down time as you can see is done in style. Yes, looking at her here you would never guess that she has to spend a second sweating over every little calorie, as she still manages to look fantastic. For her spa day, Heidi went for a standard look with her hair piled back and little concern for muss and fuss and even so, she still looks fabulous, as she has the designer duds that take all the focus off of her hair. This just goes to show that yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself.

This look is not one that you need to style or maintain, it’s a simple matter of effortlessly pinning your hair back and out of your way when you are ready to engage in your well earned down time. If you are going to be running your errands or catching up on spa time while running to and fro in the elements, you also want to be sure to run some anti humectants through your hair to protect your hair from the sun’s exposure, and to minimize any drying out from outdoor elements. Post you time, you definitely want to lose the second day hair, and wash and go as you normally would for your day. But one thing Heidi IS proving here is that even supermodels can go a little casual now and again and still look fabulous. And you can too!

Gwen Stefani Strikes a Pose

Gwen Stefani Hairstyles
Here is one hot mama, and ever since she had her second child, her gorgeousness has been way under the radar for far too long. So it’s nice to see her pop out and give us a smile to prove that she is just as gorgeous as ever as she and her husband visit their family in the Buckinghamshire countryside in the UK. And even when she is out and about visiting family, she looks just that fabulous. Does she ever have a bad anything day? Who knows, but what Gwen 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 the pony nice and high, and pull out some bangs to the side in either direction of your part, however you feel most comfortable. Don’t be afraid to tease them up a little bit like Gwen has also done here. Finish the look with a little spritzing of hair gloss, and you have yourself a super easy hairstyle that will look and stay great for any occasion.

A New Girl to Gossip About?

Willa Holland
Well well, it does appear there may be a new gossip girl in town, as Willa Holland was seen on the set of Gossip Girl poking her head out of a trailer on set in downtown Manhattan. The former OC actress was seen meeting Upper East Side style standards, and was formerly seen on this show when she played a bad influence on Little J. Is she back to stir up some more trouble? Looks like, and if she is looking this hot, it may well be that she will have no trouble doing so. This casual look with bouncy curly hair is about as in as boyfriend jeans right now, and one that you can take from day to night in a flash.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 as Willa has here, or tease them whichever way you want for a hairstyle that is voluminous, sexy, and vampy for any night on the town.
