Sandra Bullock wearing a long sleek elegant hairstyle while attending the 82nd Annual Academy Awards held at The Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
Hairstyle: Long, sleek, sand elegant
Color: Brunette, Ash Brown Dark Brown, Dark Brown with light caramel highlights.
Need a specific cut? Long hair that falls below the shoulders, of course you can try with shoulder length and more medium length hair but you wont get the exact look but very similar.
Love it or Hate it? Love it! This was not just a easy hairstyle but a simple, elegant and really made the whole look for Sandra Bullock. I also love how she managed to keep it neat the while night, and mostly by just simply pulling side strands behind her ears, which not only kept her hair in place but showed off her beautiful features and simply but elegant earrings.
Products and tools to help create this celebrity hairstyle: Light Shine spray or conditioning type of spray just to soften and make the hair shine, but not too much as you do not want a greasy look either! Use a ceramic plated flat iron to achieve sexy sleek, straight hair

Hairstyle: Shoulder length and layered
Color: Honey , Light Brown with honey highlights
Need a specific cut? Shoulder length with layers
Love it or Hate it? LOVE IT, this look really makes Hilary Swank look so much more feminine and beautiful (not like she isn’t already!)
Products and tools to help create this celebrity hairstyle: Round brush and blow dryer, I would personally start out with damp, not soaking wet hair or well towel dryed hair, and you want to try to bring the layered to lightly frame the face but also light flow away from the face with some soft waves and large soft, loose large curl. This can easily be done with a round brush and blow dryer, and don’t keep the heat on too long while you want the wave and style to set you dont want to have a extremely defined curl or wave.
Jennifer Lopez wearing a sexy messy updo hairstyle at the the 82nd Annual Academy Awards held at The Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, CA. I love this hairstyle because not only is it sexy, and elegant but very easy to do. I was able to achieve this hairstyle with my long thick hair within 10 minutes, loosely pulling my hair back, then fastening with a ouch-less band and pulling it through like a ponytail but not completely. I then used coated bobby pins (you want coated to avoid any snags and breakage with your hair along with using a ouch-less hair band) and a comb to lightly tease my hair then fan out and use the bobby pins to help discretely hold some of the hairs in place to keep that messy, but sexy look in the back! Great for weddings, proms, special events and even if you just wanna go out in chic style!
