Lily Allen Gets Sleek and Chic

Lily Allen Hairstyle

Since her minor breakdown over the past few years following a torrid breakup and a miscarriage, Lily Allen has had more than a few glamorous days. But in the last few months we have watched her pick herself up and dust herself off beautifully and as she focuses on her career, the Lily glam is coming back slowly but surely. Here she is spotted in all her newly pregnant glory while she enjoys some boutique shopping in Paris in skyscraper heels, and it looks like her infamous pixie bob has made a comeback. This is one look that I have always loved on Lily, and out of all of her looks I think this one suits her the most.

You can get this look first by getting the right cut, so ask your stylist for longer length in the back and at your sides, but get some volume pumped into the top with shaggy layers cut into your crown. To style then, you can use some styling wax on towel dried hair, and blow dry your hair with a round bristle brush. This look is sleek, so you aren’t going to worry too much about volume here. When your hair is dried, spritz some antihumectant spray on your locks, and then run the flat iron over your entire head, bending the ends only slightly for some face framing style. By using the flat iron, you will lock in the antihumectant so your hair stays straight and sleek all day long, and it also adds some extra shine to that gorgeous style. For some extra shine for a night out, you can spritz on some glossing serum for a shiny, sexy finish that will instantly glam up any night on the town.

Lindsay Lohan Back to Black

Here is our favourite bad girl of Hollywood enjoying a night on the town in Los Angeles, California looking gorgeous as always, but it’s so easy for her because no matter what style her hair is sporting, she always looks great because she’s just naturally gorgeous. Here she is also showing off her inner fashionista in an elegant grey wool jacket while making her way through the paparazzi craziness outside Madeo restaurant. Yes, good hair and good style are two good things in her life, even if the rest of it is in chaos, which just goes to show, if you look great, does the rest really matter? For Lilo, no, and I have to say that once again, regardless of her new color, I love the new look. It also looks like Lindsay, despite her warm temps in L.A. has followed this season’s hair trend by taking her shade to an extreme color with dramatically darker locks. Lilo’s normally who knows what colored locks have gone from previously blonde to uber black. Here she has also straightened her normally luscious waves into a sleek look that is both chic and glamorous.

To get this look, use texturizing shampoo and conditioner in the shower, particularly if straightening your hair can be a bit of a challenge in warmer and more humid temperatures. Use straightening serum on towel dried hair, and blow dry your hair with a flat bristle brush. You don’t want lift at the crown or roots here, as sleek and bone straight is your ultimate goal. After your hair is dried, run a flat iron over your hair to smooth away any bend, and amp up the sleek factor. After your first run with the flat iron, spritz on some glossing serum to add some extra shine, and then run the flat iron through it again to lock in your super shine. Create a sleek side part, and you’ve got yourself a straight look that will last through the night no matter how hard you are rocking the night away.

Mary J. Blige has been noted as one of the ultimate in R&B stars, but even with that title in hand, she is far from diva status with this hair do. The bleach blond color does nothing for Blige’s natural beauty and we can only hope this is a wig that she will be able to throw away once she leaves the party.
