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.

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

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!
