Cate Blanchett Rocks the Red Carpet

Cate Blanchett is seen here attending the premiere of ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ in Sydney, Australia. And Cate may not look like she has been uber styled, but she looks glamorous as ever. Cate has gone with a very simple hairstyle for this event, and is wearing her generally fine and straight hair down for the evening in a look that requires little maintenance or styling.

The key to this look is once again in the cut, and with fine hair you want to go for a cut that has enough texture to give your hair the illusion of body and movement. Volume is not necessary here as with the right cut you can finish with a look that is simple, but as you can see with Cate, very sleek and sexy. With a textured and layered cut, you can enjoy minimal styling, as if the cut is done right, you can simply wash, blow dry and go.

Jennifer Connolly Sleeks it Back

Jennifer Connolly is seen here leaving the ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien’ show at NBC Studios in New York City. And though Jennifer has been under the radar lately, she won’t be for long as her new movie ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ is due out in theatres December 12th and so she is currently hot on the promo trail for it as we speak. Jennifer is one of those girls with classic beauty, exquisite bone structure, and gorgeous sleek black hair to boot. Yes, she is one of those that does not have to worry too much about styling as she just has that natural grace and beauty we all love to envy. Here even Jennifer has not gone to too much trouble with her hair as she has sleeked it back in an easy and elegant ponytail for her appearance on Conan O’Brien. Again, this look simply proves that you don’t have to go to great lengths to look fabulous. To achieve this look, you can work with second day hair if you want, but fresh clean hair always works wonders for a sleek and shiny finish. On towel dried hair, run some styling wax in your hair to just give your hair enough extra bend to move as you like. Blow dry your hair with a flat paddle brush from root to tips to maximize sheen.

Create a middle part and then simply pull your hair into a low ponytail securing with a clear elastic. If you have any of those ponytail bumps, use a wide toothed comb to smooth them out. Try and stay away from the fine tooth comb as this will lead to more bumps along the way. If you really need some extra shine or are heading out for the night, a little glossy serum will be just the thing to add that extra glamour for an all night shine.
