Michelle Obama Gets Bangs!

0-rfr4avhtA perfect example of someone who needed bangs, and now looks fabulous with them! Michelle Obama has a very high forehead, high arch eyebrows, and instead of waiting for TMZ to pounce on any future wrinkles – she turned the tables and got the coolest set of bangs ever seen on a human.

Before:

PLUS, now she has more freedom to wear a wig if she’s not having a perfect hair day (and I think some of the pictures I’ve seen of the new bangs are possible a wig). Since bangs cover up a wig hairline, which almost never looks natural.

My one beef: how come the first daughters weren’t allowed to have bangs too? They would look so cute with them!! Since it’s kind of a *cough* younger style…but now it’s too late. It’d be weird now. I’m detecting bang envy in this picture from the inauguration. Especially from the older one. Pretty sure she’s texting about it right here:

How to Get Taylor Swift’s Vintage Up-Do from the Golden Globes

We loved Taylor Swift’s elegant vintage roll up-do from the Golden Globes – and here’s how you can get it yourself!

Actually, it’s nearly the same process as our previous post on how to get a faux bob hairstyle. (with Taylor Swift adding an extra few pins in the front to hold back her blunt bangs, and using a side part rather than no part). There’s just one addition at the end: before you roll the ponytail up and under, pin with bobby pins the hair at the nape of your neck.

That’s why Taylor seems to have a little line at the back of her head – where the bobby pins were (or maybe are…hiding in there) – which is what makes this an up-do rather than a bob. It gives the roll at the back of your neck definition, instead of just spreading out to look like a under-flip bob.

Hair Styles from Golden Globes 2013: Best and Worst Celeb Styles

Adele Taylor Swift Retro Updo golden globe styleOur favorite style from the Golden Globes was where something old is new again: retro up-do’s! And the best two were competeing for the same award: Best Song from a Movie (which Adele won with ‘Skyfall’).

Taylor Swift looked elegant and grown up by sweeping the bangs off her face and having her hair look perfectly in place in a retro-rolled under up-do (but without looking crunchy from gel or hairspray).

Adele had a cool basket-weave up-do like we showed you how to get a little while back. But hers had more root volume – which is kind of her signature look.

Tomorrow we’ll show you how to get Taylor Swift’s up-do!

Runner up for best hair? I’d say Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba, since the wore similar styles. Lovely cascading curls swept to one side, most likely with some clip-in pieces or full-on extensions for length and volume. Nothing so original, but beautiful and nice. Classy ladies for sure.

Worst hair? I hate to kick someone when they’re down, but…Kelly Osborne. Questionable. The color(s), the high poof in the front, it was all too much. Can’t like it. But if you are interested in the getting Kelly’s color, here’s how to do it.

Jennifer Lawrence’s 50′s Retro Vanity Fair Cover Shoot

jennifer lawrence retro hairstyleJennifer Lawrence has cast off her tomboy Hunger Games image and now looks like absolutely amazing sex-kitten in a 50′s retro-themed cover shoot for February’s Vanity Fair Magazine.

What we especially love is her hair!! It is a high tease crown with cascading loose curls held sleekly down with a small bow headband. The overall look is feline-sexy with leopard print highwaist pants, 50′s cat-eye liner, midriff-bareing blouse, and high pointy heels which are so gorgeous on her.

However, if you want to get hair like this, unless your hair is extremely thick, you’ll need some clip-in hair extension pieces like these from HairUWear. For this picture in fact it might be a wig, or at a minimum a large piece or extension. The headband in this will do a nice job of hiding any hair pieces, so here’s how you can get this look:

1. Prep hair with a thickening spray or mousse from roots to tips. Blowdry pulling away from the scalp.

2. Set the hair on your crown in 2-3 large rollers, run the blowdryer over them for a minute, then let cool completely.

3. Slick the front of your hair back with some water and gel, hold in place with bobby pins or barrettes. Put headband over barrettes (you can take them out once hair is completely dry.

4. As you remove hair from rollers, tease the roots with a fine-tooth comb.

5. Curl just the bottom 6-8 inches of your hair with a large barrel curling iron, like our EasyCurl! Finger comb any pieces that are too perfect looking.

7. Smooth down the top layer and spray this bad boy with plenty of aquanet!
