For the MTV Movie Awards, Elizabeth Banks opted for a fun take on the traditional bun and went with a twist. You have to have really thick and long locks, or extensions, to pull this look off. You start by pulling hair into a really high ponytail at the crown of the head and then twist it around itself and into itself to finish it off. With a bun you would twist hair tight and loop it around like a coiled snake, where this look is about tucking the ends in to create a poof effect. Using hairspray when you’re finished will help loose strands stay put and help the pulled back hairs stay smooth.
The red carpet took a turn towards the dark side when Kristen Stewart walked it this past week. Between her mostly black ensemble and smokey eye makeup she looked more like an evil queen than innocent princess. And I have to say I likey! Best of all she paired the intense eyes with nude lips and a barely-there wash of color on her cheeks
I’ve been growing my hair out for a while now, but then I see a pic of a celeb, like Cameron Diaz, with a hot cropped ‘do, and I just drool. For the What to Expect When You’re Expecting premiere, the incomparable Ms. Diaz stepped out with her hair in a soft and sleek bob with sideswept bangs. This is definitely one hot style for when the temperatures rise. I’m not sure I’m ready to cut my hair yet, but one of these days I’ll stop longing for shorter locks and go for it.
I have to give Taylor Swift props - she did several of things right with her beautiful Elie Saab gown. Among them were, how she opted for a stunning smokey eye under her fringe bangs but left her lips light and almost nude. And best of all, she chose a deep, almost violet shade of dark nail polish to set her manicure off. With a dress of that color, many will choose to match it with nail polish and/or lipstick, which only creates an overstated look. Taylor’s sense of style has keenly developed over the years and she got it all right this time in my book.
Isla-Fisher-Side-Braid.jpgStarlet Isla Fisher showed up to the premiere of husband Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator last week with such a lovely, beautiful side braid. We’re loving the fullness of her hair, the deep side part and the ease with which the braid was created. It’s not too “done,” which is the perfect girly alternative to a ponytail on a hot day. Well played, Isla, well played.
