When to wear this celebrity hairstyle:
Mary-Kate Olsen’s long curly hairstyle is very messy, the hair appears to be the consistency of doll hair giving a very damaged, over-styled and over-bleach look. Hair fly-aways are everywhere also can be another sign of damage. To soften this look, use a good shampoo and conditioner specially for damaged, permed or colored hair. Oil treatments are also a must to tone down the fly-aways and brittle look the ends and curls have. Once you have washed, and towel dried the hair, try using a leave in conditioner which can also help the appearance overall of dry and damaged hair. Work into the hair paying also attention to getting the ends, and keeping away from any direct contact to the scalp as not to give a greasy scalp appearance. Parting in the middle is best rather than attempting a comb-over like Mary-Kate has, as it just looks horrible and very messy. Finish off with your choice of finishing spray, mousse or gel to help secure locks in place and help reduce anymore fly-aways. Overall Mary-Kate Olsen’s hair appears very damaged, a great tip is to keep in mind bleaching, perming and over-styling can really cause a lot of damage to hair. When you end up with brittle and dry looking locks like this one of your biggest things is to immediately have the damaged ends trimmed and then follow up with conditioning treatments as directed to help add moisture back into the hair.

  2. Hi,

    Very interesting. Thank you very much for your post.


  3. I love this deliberately messy look, on her, as well as older women whose blond locks are graying & can be easily blended-in. Her lower curls are glossy, not like dry straw (the slight frizz at top is likely humidity or some natural coarseness in some areas,like mine).The ends are not frayed or wispy like that of someone w/ split ends/no volume who can’t bear to part with an inch of it.

    This style is reminiscent of Victorian women letting their long, wavy curls flow down from the daytime upswept bun. Its loose, tossled sensuality provocatively hints of a little wildness (later at night?),then & now- none of that molded helmet hair which screams “Don’t touch it!”… Side parts are very trendy, it suits her. She has that gorgeous avant garde look of Vogue, as always. Elegant in an edgy way. Very cool.

  4. This is great. I will e mail this to a few buddies if that’s okay.

  5. Helpful information. Fortunate me I discovered your website by accident, and I am stunned why this coincidence did not happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
