Jennifer Garner On Set

Jennifer Garner Photos

Here is another girl with features so exquisite it doesn’t matter what look she is pulling off, or trying to. Here she was spotted on set taking time out of her busy schedule to take photos and talk with fans. The set you ask is the set of “Arthur” and though half of her was dolled up, and the other half dressed down in sandals and blue jeans, she still looked gorgeous as ever. Of course because she is on set, she is immaculately styled, but for Jennifer, it doesn’t seem to matter whether she is on the red carpet or hanging in baby clothes stores, she always looks amazing. And it is this girl next door look that really seems to be the big trend right now, which should be a key to you when you are mastering your own signature style. A little bit of simple goes a long way here. Jennifer’s hair has been styled in the half up half down look, but in a very particular way in order to suit her role in the movie. You want to concentrate on curls here if you like this look, as you should. 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 Jennifer 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. To finish, simply pin back the top sections of your hair for an easy and very elegant look that looks very pretty, and very pulled together.

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
