Jennifer Garner Glams It Up in the Wee Hours

Jennifer Garner Hair Styles

Jennifer Garner is seen here looking more fabulous before dawn than….well, probably just about anybody. And the reason for this on this rainy early New York morning is that she is on her way to The View, a show that starts working well before many of the rest of us. We know she is one of America’s sweethearts, so we just can’t hate her for looking this great this early in the morning. And while her super glossy wavy locks are certainly enviable, as are her budget and styling team, you too can have this look. You might want to keep in mind however that if you have a pre-dawn appointment like Jennifer did here, you will want to give yourself some time. If however you are simply wanting a shiny glamorous look for day or night, this one will definitely turn heads for you. 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. You can also brush the curls out to get sleek waves like Jennifer has here, and add some spritzes of glossing serum to give it that gorgeous shine.


Audrina Patridge Makes Up for Lost Time

Audrina Patridge Hairstyles

And though she may be a favorite on Dancing With the Stars for never missing a beat, Audrina Patridge from The Hills is just as human as the rest of us apparently and is prone to a late morning or two herself. Here she is seen rushing into the Dancing With the Stars rehearsal studios after running late, but she is certainly doing it fashionably. Arriving on set with supersized shades and squeaky clean hair, Audrina is not going to let a late morning frazzle her, and nor should you. Yes, even you can look this great after some morning rushing, and it’s easier than you think.

To get this look, you want to have a layered cut with long concave layers cut that angle toward your features rather than away from them. Use texturizing shampoo and conditioner to give your hair some bend, and blow dry your hair from roots to ends with a round and soft bristle brush. After your blowdry, you can run some styling pomade through your hair to give it some additional texture and movement. If you have a few extra minutes, you can quickly whip a curling iron to add some fluffy bend, but not too much. To do so, just use a 1 ½ “ curling iron but here you really just want to run the iron through your hair, and not focus too much on curl. Keep the curling on for just a second or two, and create a lovely, soft wave that will last all day. You will then brush these waves out for a soft almost ethereal look, and a sexy but not too fussy side part will add instant vamp appeal to your overall look of casual elegance.

Supermodel Supermum Claudia Schiffer Takes Tots to School

Claudia Schiffer

Most of the time, seeing prints and florals put together makes one want to wince, but when you are looking at Claudia Schiffer in such a getup, you can’t help but wonder if this is one of those new trends you want to try. You don’t. Claudia Schiffer can pull it off because she is Claudia Schiffer, and if you were spotted toting your kids to school in an outfit like this, you might just get that sympathetic head tilt and frown. Or you could try the trend and see how it goes, but chances are you just won’t rock it the way Claudia Schiffer has here. With an easy breezy blowout hairstyle to boot, you can see why she is one of the most sought after supermodels still today, despite the fact that she is enjoying mommyhood to the hilt.

This is a very easy style and simply depends on a good cut, ask your stylist for face framing layers here, and a simple wash and go should do the trick. For added staying power during the day, use some texturizing serum before you blow dry, and blow dry with a round bristle brush, making sure you lift at the roots for volume, and frame your layers towards your face. Use a flat iron to sleek ends out if you prefer long and straight, and also use it on your bangs to sweep them over to the side. A sexy side part paired with an attitude of, your hair will go where your day does, will ensure this look lasts all day, and easily into the evening hours as well.


Lindsay Lohan Free to Gas Up Wherever She Likes

Lindsay Lohan Hair Styles

Yes, the inevitable has happened, your favorite Mean Girls actress was given what many consider the star treatment, even in prison. After about 18 days of a 90 day sentence, Lindsay Lohan was spotted looking happy, relaxed, and relieved to continue her life of excess. One of the first things on her list, hanging out with her friend Eliat, who was driving the black Mercedes she was spotted gassing up here. And it looks like her decision to go into prison blonde stuck, as she seems to be maintaining the look. At least for now. Yes, Lindsay Lohan is starting to develop a reputation similar to Ashlee Simpson when it comes to style, as it appears that she is enjoying changing the hair color with the seasons. We’ve seen her red, platinum, black, and now she is back to blonde and appears to be her usual self. This look is not so difficult to achieve in terms of styling. But the long, bone straight look with or without fringe bangs is about as contemporary as the skinny jean that Lindsay is wearing, so give it a whirl as this timeless look will flatter any face shape.

To get the look that Lindsay has here, you want to start off with the same layered cut that she has here with or without, depending on your taste, some nice fringe bangs that will draw attention to those gorgeous eyes. Use some straightening serum on towel dried hair, and blow dry your hair with a flat paddle brush pulling your hair straight as you dry. Use a flat iron to sleek your hair out as much as you can. When you are flat ironing, you want to pin the top sections of your hair up first, and flat iron the bottom sections for maximum fullness and all over straightness. After you have flat ironed your entire head, spritz your hair with some anti-humectant. Immediately following this, you will want to flat iron your hair again, and this will lock in the humectant, and give your hair some beautiful shine. It will also seal the cuticle and ensure that your hair stays straight and glam all day long, even when you are pumping up at the gas station.

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.
