The Rachel haircut, which was popularized by Jennifer Aniston in the 1990s, is not the only hairstyle Hollywood celebrities have made ubiquitous in pop culture. Looking at photos of celebrities parading down the red carpets, acting on the small and big screens, and generally just being their glamorous selves, we will observe several hairstyle trends for 2012 that non-celebrities can take a cue from.
Emma Watson, Michelle Williams and Halle Berry have all rocked the pixie crop. We must say that it is a refreshing change from both the flowing locks and the chignons most female celebrities wear during industry events, not to mention that it is easy to achieve even without an army of hairstylists.
The pixie cut is great for showing off your face’s angles and, despite its initial impression, for being versatile in appearance.
Think of the pixie crop as the little black dress of hairstyles – dress it up by making the hair lie flat or dress it down by making it messy.
Scarlett Johansson best exemplified the petite,slightly wavy and choppy cut
. This is a hairstyle that takes confidence to pull off but when you do pull it off, you are rewarded with a bed-head sexy, enthralling and yet unpredictable look. The hairstyle works best on blonde hair although brunette and redhead locks can also pull it off.
To achieve the hairstyle, we suggest curling your hair moderately and then whisking your tresses into natural waves with the use of a sea-salt spray.
Be sure to change course with each hair section while curling it but make sure to keep the ends as straight as possible.
Olivia Wilde best epitomizes the full potential of a messy and yet polished, blunt and yet soft, and sexy hairstyle. Despite its appearance, the hairstyle is actually easy to achieve with a few tools and simple techniques.
The cut should be jagged so that the style has a textured look and feel to it. The fringe must be voluminous with a slightly jagged and feathered touch such that it has an edgy feel to it, too.
Long layers should be present around the face, which will create body with the whole style kept together using wax or gel products.
Full Bodied Style
A show stopping beauty that always has long lusturous locks to compliment her look is Blake Lively.
To achieve such a thick and glamorous style braids are used to frame her face and compliment her look.
Foils add depth and for those amongst us who lack naturally long treshles of hair, hair extensions could be used to achieve a similiar stlye. Check out these guys www.hairextensions-australia.com.au if extensions are what you need to pull of this look.
This hairstyle is not for the girl-next-door type of women simply because of its blunt, edgy and fashion-forward appeal. Rooney Mara popularized the hairstyle and we must say that she is the only one who rocks it on the red carpet in glam yet edgy ensembles.
However, even a plain Jane can wear the low-maintenance, sleek and simple hairstyle albeit a certain attitude is required.
We suggest choosing a length that suits your personality, pin the hair behind your head, and leave a heavy fringe in front obviously to frame your face.
You may also leave a few long layers to create body, so to speak, in your edgy hairstyle. Your best choice is a bold, striking hair color like midnight black or fiery red to accentuate its edginess.
Last but not the least, we have the Duchess of Cambridge causing hair envy among celebrities, royalty and commoners alike. Kate Middleton’s lustrous hair looks healthy, bouncy and shiny, which befits a modern, elegant and gorgeous Cinderella.
Her hair is relatively easy to achieve with a conditioning mask treatment once a week and a volume-enhancing blow-drying spray applied on the hair before curling. Of course, it also helps if you can keep the curls as soft as possible.
Which one is the best? We daresay that it depends on the celebrity you look up to as a style icon.
