Camilla Belle’s shoulder length hairstyle

Camilla Belle is wearing her hair in a shoulder length hairstyle while attending the film premiere for ‘Push’ at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood, California.

I love shoulder length cuts especially on thick hair because its not too short but not so long that it takes ages to brush and style. Camilla Belle is wearing her shoulder length locks in a simple but sexy hairstyle. Camilla Belle’s hair is roughly shoulder length, then her hair is curled (most likely with rollers) in large thick curls at the ends. Her front section of her hair is also gathered and sleekly styled and tucked behind her ear to keep her hair away from her face and eyes. Overall this is a simple classic hairstyle that looks great anywhere and works well for almost any face shape. The only thing I recommend beyond this is a better styling product to keep the flyaways at bay as you can see in the photo Camilla Belle’s hair looks very thick and healthy but she has many many flyaways which sometime can make or break a a great hairstyle!

Headband How to – Create a Sexy, Simple Hairstyle With Headbands

January 29, 2009  |  How To Hairstyles  |  2 Comments

The headband is one simple hair accessory that offers women an easy, foolproof way to create a look that’s both fresh and pretty; simply toss one on and you can look instantly pulled together without coming off as fussy or overly formal. Throwing on a headband is such an easy way to deal with a bad (and/or lazy) hair day, and a great alternative to your average ponytail. And if you throw on a sparkly headband, then suddenly you look a little dressed up. It’s easier and, arguable, sexier than the standard updo. Try wearing a headband at night, coupled with a sexy smoky eye, or you can throw on a thin sparkly band during the day with your favorite tee or tank. Who doesn’t love a little shot of glamour juxtaposed with a casual outfit?

Headbands are also incredibly affordable; considering their low cost, you can pick up two or even three in order to give yourself some choices when attempting this look. Wear them one at a time, or pair them up for some extra fun. How do you make the headband really look fresh? The trick is to make sure you have plenty of messy volume in the hair behind the band. Follow these three simple steps to create this sexy style:

1. Flip your head over, in order to create volume and allow access to the roots of your hair.

2. Tease away – apply some volumizing cream or spray to the roots for extra hold and body.

3. Finally, pull your hair back; if your hair is short, just twist and pin your locks, and if your hair is long, pin into a messy bun. Slide on your headband to smooth the front down, and voila! You’re ready to go. What could be easier? Check out our site for more beauty tips!

The high ponytail – Fashioned high above the head this is great for long hair which you can then curl the ends, or shorter hair where you can make the shorter strands stick or fan out and make a statement or curl for a more elegant look.

The low ponytail – Fashioned usually at the nape this hairstyle can also work for elegant, casual or office occasions. You can also fashion the ponytail low to the side, leave straight or add curls.

The loose ponytail – Loose ponytail hairstyles are becoming very popular for both casual and elegant events! The “Loose” part is actually not entirely the ponytail itself but the hair on your head should not be pulled as tight as a regular ponytail hairstyle. Loosen strands and add curls for a romantic but elegant look that can work anywhere.

Jennifer Morrison’s elegant long hairstyle

Jennifer Morrison is wearing a sexy, elegant long hairstyle while attending A Taste for a Cure, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel with a live performance by ‘American Idol’ winner David Cook at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

I love this hairstyle and her hair its just gorgeous perfect as a wedding hairstyle, prom hairstyle, elegant hairstyle or if you just want to show off your gorgeous locks or feel especially beautiful for the day!.
You can try to do a similar hairstyle by doing the following:

With rollers or a large curling iron curl your hair midway (not too close to the scalp).

Once hair is completely curled, gather bobby pins preferably in a color as close to your own hair color! Also take out any special clip you might want to use too.

The way this hairstyle is done is her very front bangs are left to the side to elegantly frame her face, you want to go a inch inwards and use about 2-3 inches wide of your hair paying in mind you do not want to go too far back/ too close to the back of the head. You will then take these strands and pull them around to the back of your hair pinning and clipping low enough to lightly pull out and fluff out strands of hair from the back and top of your head like the picture shows. Use bobby pins to hold side strands in place of you wish, also a few in the back to help hold strands in and out.

Kyra Sedgwick is wearing her hair in a long messy hairstyle while attending the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

This hairstyle is very easy to do and a great fit for Kyra Sedgwick and her gown at the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Here are some great tips on how to achieve a similar long messy hairstyle.

1. Whether you want more curl or more of the messy “just got out of bed” look you need a premium hair product that will help achieve the maximum hold and flexibility.

2. You can do this hairstyle 2 different ways. Curling the hair loosely, or with wet hair. With curling your hair you will definitely have more body to the hairstyle overall and more curl/wave to it. With wet hair think the “wet hair look of the 90′s” but without so much hair product! For wet hair you will simply towel dry your hair, then add your hairstyling product rubbed between your hands and “crunch” your hair while occasionally taking time to also bend your head down and give it a crunch and shake. Curling your hair you can of course have it dry and work the curls between your hands, while adding your hairstyling product>

This is a very easy hairstyle however it cant be pulled off by anyone so i definitely recommend trying it out and testing which methods work for you and whether overall the style looks well with your face shape and features.

Long hair style is hotter and more popular than ever.
People that are lucky enough to have long hair are always looking for new and interesting ways to wear their hair. People who can’t grow their own long tresses are opting for add-on hair and extensions. The long layered hairstyles can be achieved with minor differences in the knocks.

It is very important what you eat, as it truly does affect your hair. Hair is made up of ninety percent a-keratin protein and ten percent water. For this reason avoid crash diets or low protein diets. Long hair is fragile and needs intensive conditioning and caring. The length should be trimmed regularly and the hair brushed each day using a pure, bristle brush. The bristles literally polish the hair gently spreading the natural oils from roots to ends. Combs should he wide toothed, smooth ended and of a high quality.

There a classic look for long-haired women that has been around for centuries – literally. Not only is it attractive, but it’s functional. Yet it doesn’t have a name, per se but can be described as a half up half down hairstyle, just a description: pulled back at the temples. A young girl or woman with long flowing locks has taken a slim lock of hair from the area of her temples and pulled them back and bound them together behind her head.

If you have relatively thick long hair you can modify the multi-pony by adding more than 3 separate sections. Experiment with as many ponytails as you like. While the look certainly is more contemporary than professional, you love the new style.

Marisa Tomei’s bad hair day

Marisa Tomei is clearly having a bad hair day while attending The Art Of Elysium 2nd Annual Black Tie Charity Gala “Heaven”

If you look closely she isnt only having a hair malfunction but slightly a dress one as well ! This hairstyle is just all wrong for Marisa Tomei, her hair also appears to be frizzy dry and brittle which could be from over styling, heating and coloring. Marisa would have done well with a updo hairstyle, or even something as simple as a ponytail hairstyle to mask the damage to her hair.

Here are some great tips for dry and damaged hair and how to keep it healthy and repair it.
Use vinegar as a conditioner. Massage it into your scalp or soak your hair in vinegar and water before you shampoo. This will eliminate dandruff as well as restore dry hair.

Rub oil into your scalp. Then cover your hair with a hat, leave it on overnight and shampoo and rinse the oil out next morning. Olive oil and coconut oil work the best.

Lather your hair with an egg whipped into tepid water. Make sure the water is not too hot. Rinse the egg out with tepid water afterward.

Combine all three to deep-treat damaged hair. Mix three eggs, two tablespoons olive or safflower oil, and one teaspoon vinegar. Apply it to your hair, cover with a plastic cap for 30 minutes and then shampoo it out.

Run your hair through cold water. This will lock in the moisture.

Wash your hair in warm or cool water, not hot. Use a shampoo rich in Vitamin E. Use a leave-in conditioner.
Preventing Dry/Damaged Hair

Avoid shampooing too often. Doing so more than once a day will dry out the hair and scalp. This is especially true in cold weather.

Reduce the use of the hairdryer. The hot air will dry and damage your hair. If you do use a dryer, use the cool setting.

Rihanna’s sexy short hairstyle!

Rihanna is wearing her hair in a sexy short hairstyle while attending the RIAA Inaugural Ball.

I love this hairstyle on Rihanna and it suits her very well (just ignore the ugly yellow dress!).  What I love about this hairstyle is that it is different lengths on the side and the top is kept long.  Having the top of the head longer than the back and sides allows for a little bit more versatility and creativity when styling your hair which we have seen in past photos of Rihanna. Another great thing about this short hairstyle is that it is very simple and easy to style, or can be as difficult as you want it to be.  Short hairstyles can sometimes also bring out your round features so this is anothet thing you might want to consider if you are thinking about going to a short hairstyle.
