Thinking of changing your hair? Before you allow your stylist to take the shears to your locks, make sure you are on the same page by giving her a snapshot of your favorite celebrity sporting the hairstyle you want to make your own.
Short and Sassy
Ever since Audrey Hepburn made short hair beautiful and feminine, female celebrities have opted to cut off their length and allow their beautiful faces to take center stage. If you want to follow in their footsteps, try a voluminous bob like Katie Holmes, a full-bodied pixie-cut like “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Keira Knightley or a soft flipped-out bob, like MTV reality show hottie, Kristin Cavallari. Whether you wear your hair straight or curly, selecting a short hair style can make it easier to obtain and maintain the volume you desire.
Nothing quite shines and shimmers like a sleek and straight hairstyle. If you are lucky enough to have hair that will hold this sought-after level of smooth perfection, take advantage of your luck and mimic celebrities who share your hair type. Gwyneth Paltrow commonly hits the red carpet with her blonde locks down and simply straight. Reese Witherspoon’s thick hair also stays straight, and she commonly adds a chunky bang to spice up the look.
Soft and Simple
The most-coveted celebrity hairstyles are usually the tousled, windswept locks that look effortless and easy. Jennifer Aniston’s waves, Julianne Hough’s soft curls and Julianne Moore’s sleek and sophisticated red coif are all wonderful choices if you want a long, feminine look. While these hairstyles may look simple, they will likely take some prep time in the morning to perfect and maintain.
If you are a rock-and-roll rebel at heart, use this affinity for rule-breaking to shine through in your haircut selection. Add some color like singers Pink and Gwen Stefani, who both frequently play with unnatural hues. Adopt an angular, asymmetrical cut like Rihanna, who always pushes the hair boundaries. A rock star inspiration who accurately reflects your inner wild-child, and whose hair you can wear without worry during your day-to-day life.
