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 Photos

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.

Bad Girl Michelle Trachtenberg Sleeks it Back

Bad Girl Michelle Trachtenberg

The bad girl that everybody loves to hate on Gossip Girl manages to get the glam on again. And we have to say, as much as we love to hate her, we almost can’t, because her style is just so darn pretty. Here she is going uber cas in a mustard yellow cardigan and grey scarf with a sleeked back ponytail and uber glam shades. Here Michelle is not exactly her former sexy vamp sinking her claws into the Upper East side of the city, but she is not exactly sending off the Christian Polyanna vibes any longer. 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. If you are still trying to figure out a way to make this look really work, add an eye popping accessory like Michelle has here with her scarf. Stunning.

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.

Kate Hudson Sleeks It Back

Kate Hudson Hairstyle 2011

Kate Hudson is definitely a girl that loves the glam, but you would never guess it here, but she certainly didn’t compromise the pretty with this casual look. Here Kate was spotted dashing out of her New York City home with boyfriend Matt Bellamy as they were heading out for the airport. Wearing black buckled riding boots, a furry black coat, big shades and a sleek ponytail Kate Hudson is looking anything but dressed down. With this airport look, Kate has proved that style with comfort doesn’t need to be frumpy, as she has paired some simple fashion pieces with a very chic do. This just goes to show that yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself, and you can style yourself very easily even when on long flights and airport busyness.

To get this look, dampen your soft bristle brush as you pull this ponytail back, and let it sit nice and low on the back of your neck like Kate has here. If you have bangs, you just need to bend your bangs under ever so slightly with your flat iron or curling iron, and if you don`t, then sweep everything into your pony. This is the cute part of the sexy look, the sexy comes with the outfit you pair it with. If you pull off the right look like Kate has here and choose simple pieces that are casual, but fitted to your size and complement your figure, you can get away with the ponytail. This look will only take a few minutes, so go ahead and sleep in a little since you won’t have to worry about your hair. You can arrive on time and still look fabulous and nobody will ever be the wiser.
