Nicole Richie wearing a high updo hairstyle while attending the 82nd Annual Academy Awards held at The Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, CA. I particularly love Nicole Richie’s rich dark color which I think is a very big step up from her washed out trashy blonde colors she used to run around with when younger. This hairstyle is not only elegant but shows Nicole Richie is maturing into a beautiful tasteful individual unlike her used to be counter-part Paris Hilton.

Hairstyle: Short, elegant hairstyle

Color: Blonde, Golden Blonde, Butterscotch, Pale Golden Blonde

Why we love this celebrity hairstyle:

This hairstyle is beautiful, elegant and easy to do for those of you wanting a short hairstyle, a new hairstyle or some ideas for cuts/styles on your hair. Wear this hairstyle to any elegant event of occasion, but don’t be afraid to wear it to more casual events and occasions as well. This hairstyle is very much all in the parting. When styling use a light shine spray for a healthy sleek shine and glow. Don’t over spray with hairstyling products as you do not want this hairstyle to look heavy, weighed down or the hair to appear greasy and dirty.
Words or phrases to describe this celebrity hairstyle:
Short, sleek, elegant

Love it or Hate it?
LOVE IT!

Have long hair but don’t want to take the large amount of time it can mean to fashion
an updo hairstyle of any sort? Just because your attending an elegant occasion does not
mean it automatically requires an elegant updo hairstyle of sorts!

You can easily opt for long, sexy, sleek and straight. By using a flat iron you can achieve
this look very easily, and it is versatile enough for many other events and occasions as
well. If a flat iron is not your thing using something as simple as a flat brush and blow
dryer on damp hair can work as well. Part your hair in different sections, zig zags
or one of my personal favorites First part your hair down the middle, after using a flat
Iron or flat brush/blow dryer combo, take about 2-3 inches of hair from the front and
neatly tuck them behind the ears, add shine spray, and a good but flexible holding spray.
You can also fasten these strands if say your bangs are short or its hard to keep them
behind your ears with a coated bobby pin close in color to your hair color.

Another option is to Use hot rollers/curling iron or a round brush and blow dryer to
create beautiful curls basically from ear length down, and then fashioning the hair so it
sits swept onto one preferred side. This hairstyle is essentially easy once you get past the
curling and can usually last all evening without problems if you use good quality products.

Lastly top with a great pair of earrings to show off!

Taylor Swift’s elegant hairstyle

Taylor Swift's elegant hairstyle

Taylor Swift is wearing a beautiful loose low chignon hairstyle while attending the 2009 Video Music Awards!

Hairstyle: Loose, Romantic and elegant chignon hairstyle

Color: Pale Golden Blonde, Pale Blonde, Wheat Blonde

Why we love this celebrity hairstyle:
This hairstyle is both beautiful, romantic and very elegant. Wear this hairstyle to events such as weddings, proms, galas, black tie events, or any special occasion.

Tips on achieving this celebrity hairstyle:
While the chignon is loose, I highly recommend finding coated bobby pins to try and match your hair color (to prevent snags and hair damage plus so the pins aren’t so obvious) or even decorative clips just to make sure to hold the chignon/bun into place. Start off with wavy, or curled hair (hot rollers, blow-dryer with round brush or even an overnight braiding will do and most likely last longer) to give a more romantic feel to the overall style. Top off the style with a quality holding spray that does not give down a weighed down appearance. I recommend Garnier as their hair sprays work wonders but dont flake, or make your hair appear too stiff!

Hairstyle: Sleek, fierce, elegant and sexy braided bun hairstyle

Color: Light Auburn, Auburn, Dark Auburn, Fire Engine Red, Flame Red

Why we love this celebrity hairstyle:
The sleek hairstyle, the edged , perfect parting of the hair, and the elegant braided bun hairstyle is perfect for elegant events such as weddings, proms, but versatile enough you can easily pull this off for office attire!

Tips on achieving this celebrity hairstyle:
For me with long thick hair I can easily braid my ends to form a bun. However there are different types of extensions, clip on braids and even buns that can be found at various hair care isles, and stores. If your using your own hair you can also choose to use small braids like Bryce Dallas Howard or use a large braid. I personally would start with damp hair and a styling cream, mousse or gel. Part the hair accordingly but don’t be afraid to choose a opposite side or completely different part if this particular one does not appeal to you! Use a decorative holding band for the bun if you wish, or one that matches your hair color. Use coated bobby pins similar to your hair color to hold bun into place. I personally always start pinning the bottom or sides first and sometimes can manage to use less pins as possible. Top with a light shine spray and holding spray to tame flyaways and give a healthy sleek shine.
