Claire Danes Looked better then ever at the “An evening with Homeland” event in hollywood on March 21st proving that mid length hair can be hotter then ever this year. Not only did her hair look amazing but so did her body! To prepare for the show, Claire Danes spent time with real CIA agents quoting ” It was a trill to peak inside that culture!”. This blonde bombshell was also honored as Hasty’s 1212 woman of the year and has caught everyone’s eye as of late. There are many ways to update mid length hair so weather you are looking for this length or growing your hair out, look fierce without the hassle of longer locks.

Top tips for going for a mid length cut: One of the most important things to think about when looking for a mid length hairstyle that will best suit you is the density of your hair.

For medium to thick hair, you can do more detailed layers in the back because you have more to work with. Layers can change the whole look depending on if your layers are just on the bottom layer or just focused at the crown so have fun with it!

If you have fine hair you want to stay away from too many layers on the bottom layer because it will make your hair look more fine. It’s best with fine hair to keep the bottom more blunt and just focus on a few soft layers around the crown and a few face framing layers. Bangs will also give this length of hair a even more trendier look as well. Another great thing about this length is it’s a lot more manageable then long locks but can be just as or even more sexy then longer styles.

With summer just around the corner, mid length hair is easier to deal with in humidity but still long enough to pull up for a new and easy look.

Kylie Minogue Keeps It Under a Lid

Kylie Minogue is seen here braving the plummeting temperatures in London, England, and showing that you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for warmth. The pop princess stepped out of her home in Chelsea wearing a wooly hat and puffy coat and looking cuter than ever. And though you may balk at the notion of hat head and frizz, the cold temps may actually help you with your hair days, as you can use these accessories as a means of keeping warm AND looking good. For her jaunt in the cold, Kylie went with a casual look for her natural brunette waves, and simply tucked them under this chic hat, embracing her curls as she did so.

This is an easy look to accomplish, even on second day hair and is perfect for this time of year. The easiest way to get this look is to do your hair the night before! Before you go to bed at night, wrap your damp hair into a bun and sleep on your coil overnight. You only want your bun to be slightly damp, and about 90% dry. This will allow your hair to bend overnight and dry with the waves you are creating with the bun. In the morning, take your bun out and finger comb your waves out. Use a pretty hair accessory like Kylie has here to tuck those waves under just a little bit and allow the rest of your luscious locks to stay loose and sexy and carefree just like Kylie’s. Who said you needed to LOOK as cold as you feel, with this look, you are cool as a cucumber.

Cate Blanchett Rocks the Red Carpet

Cate Blanchett

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.
