Kate Moss looked amazing on January 24th as she inked her new contract as the new spokes model for the worldwide known Mango fashion.
Her touchable waves made this world famous fashion icon a triple threat and shows how waves are a big statement this year.

How to get this look: What’s great this year about curls and waves is the new techniques that create different looks with the same tool. Flat irons not only straighten the hair but also can create this look in less then 30 minutes. You want to use a flat iron with a beveled edge so you don’t have creases in the hair so you can achieve this soft but stunning look.

You also want to use the flat iron in a vertical direction and have vertical partings to create a wave pattern that flows nicely. It’s important to use a thermal spray before curling the hair to protect the hair from damage and also using a finishing spray for a polished look when finished.

Vanessa Hudgens Waves it Off

Vanessa Hudgens Wavy Hairstyles

Vanessa Hudgens is seen here looking like she doesn’t have a care in the world, but you would never guess that she just split from four year long love Zac Efron. Oh well says the happy twenty something as she moves on with her life, and we love the attitude she takes with her. Though, you have to wonder how well Zac is taking this. Not that anyone would notice, Vanessa is making it very clear just how single she is, and is making sure she looks fabulous while she does so. Can you say she is hoping for a rebound beau under the tree this year? Most likely says the magic 8 ball. But if you want to look this fabulous, you can too, as this long and loose look is today’s most gorgeous trend. It’s everywhere right now.

To get this look, you need a long layered cut that you can work some volume into. Start off by scrunching some pomade or volumizing mousse into damp 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 though you may not have her boyfriend woes, you will have her look of long luscious waves lasting all day, and into the night.

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.

Alessandra Ambrosio Dines in Style

Alessandra Ambrosio 2011 Photos

Victoria’s Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio is spotted here rocking a gorgeous style while she heads out to Beso restaurant in Los Angeles. And she is proving here, you don’t have to wear couture or be “done”” every single second, with her seventies style furry vest and long and loose waves, she looks stunning! This is a look that proves that you only need minimal effort coupled with some fashion savvy to pull off an uber glam look that is practically effortless. Add in some of this season’s hottest hair trend, two toned highlights, and you get a textured look that is gorgeous by flowing loosely with just enough volume for sex appeal.

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 Alessandra 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 curl that puts you over the top.

Has Stephanie Pratt Had Some Work Done?

Stephanie Pratt Plastic Surgery

It really is no secret in Hollywood that plastic surgeons are among the highest paid, right after A list actors and actresses, and having a little work done is about as common place as ordering a non fat latte and egg white omelette. But some stars, like those from the hit MTV show The Hills, seem to take this to an all new level. It seems like every time we see one of them, after some time, they look a little different. What do you think? Has Stephanie Pratt, sister to the most hated husband in Malibu, had some work done? She looks…just a little different. Regardless of any nip and tucking she may have enjoyed though, it seems that her hair is still just as pretty as ever. Stephanie appeared at the Verizon HTC Incredible Launch at the Voyeur in West Hollywood last week rocking this gorgeous hairstyle that just seems to be everywhere these days. 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 today’s most gorgeous trend. 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.
