Leighton Meester Lightens Up

Leighton Meester Hair Styles

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. And as usual, Leighton Meester was in all her fashionable glory looking fabulous with some lightened locks, and a smile that is much less Queen B, and much more feminine and likable. I love this look on her and that she is moving lighter as the seasons move forward, and she is just looking absolutely fabulous in a hairstyle that is this year’s trend. Leighton here is looking about as fabulous as it gets, with gorgeous brunette colored locks with butter scotch colored highlights that have been styled into gorgeous waves. And this is one girl who it seems no matter how she is dressed, her style is one that is definitely envied. And she can certainly pull just about any look off off. And if you haven’t guessed what the deal is with this hair style, then you may want to put some contemporary back into your locks as this long and loose look is the beauty version of the boyfriend jean. It’s everywhere right now.

To get this look, start off by scrunching some pomade or volumizing mousse into your 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 you will have long luscious waves lasting all day, and into the night.

Leighton Meester’s Curls Night Out

Leighton Meester is seen here looking her ever so fabulous self while standing outside her hotel with boyfriend Sebastian Stan on the way to the VMA’s at Radio City Music Hall in New York City the other night. And though you may think that you know this girl’s style status from all of the trends that she has started with Gossip Girl, when she is off camera, she certainly does keep us guessing, doesn’t she? Whether she is going blonde or straight or wavy or curly, we never know what she is going to look like next. Here she has chosen a style that is right in line with her event for the evening, and has gone metallic rocker girl in an ensemble and hairstyle that pumps up the volume and gives her a seriously sexy 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.
