Get the celebrity hairstyle that makes you ready for the red carpet. Whether you have curly or straight hair, just want to clip your hair or feel prepared for a full cut, color and style, somewhere a celebrity is sporting a look that will work for you. You do not need a personal stylist or $100 haircut to rock the look of Hollywood stars. Instead, adopt their tricks and tools, and remember a finishing spray for last-minute touch-ups.
Hollywood sweetheart Jennifer Aniston invented the angled shag that had everyone asking their hairstylist for the Rachel cut. Enough time has passed for the Rachel to qualify as a retro trend. Women with straight or wavy hair can achieve the distinctive look of this celebrity hairstyle. The length should not go past the shoulders, so that you can achieve maximum bounce. Get long layers and part hair on the side. Distribute mousse that gives your hair volume or, for more support, use a hair putty or gel. A pump of hairspray adds staying power.
J Lo Updo
Jennifer Lopez strikes a sexy note with everything from her sleek updos to her messy ponytails. Emulate her elegant celebrity style by pulling your hair back into a ponytail that stays below the top of your head. Hold the ponytail in place with a rubber band. Wrap a lock of your hair around the ponytail to hide the rubber band, securing it with a small bobby pin. For a tight updo, twist the ponytail and wrap it into a knot, pinning it into place. For a high-volume ponytail, clip a ponytail hair extension to the base of your ponytail. Roll sections of your hair with a large-barrel curling iron. Lightly spritz finishing spray to add gloss, or hairspray set the curls. Keep the sides and top of your hair looking sleek by smoothing on gel.
Natasha Budhi Curls
For women who want to rock their curls, go bold and beautiful with Natasha Budhi’s stylish hair. This celebrity look takes some stamina. Wash your hair and squeeze out the excess water. Apply a thick conditioner and let your hair air dry. Divide your hair into three sections–the top of your head, the middle and the bottom. You need a curling iron with a small rod to set your hair. Wrap small sections of your hair vertically, creating layers of tiny ringlets down the back of your head. Move to the middle and then crown of your head, adding more layers of curls. Set the look with a finishing spray.
