I had no idea who Zendaya was until her hair caught my attention. Check out her tidy topknot! It’s perfectly positioned at the very tippy top of her head turning a casual knot into a full-on statement. Paired with hoops, it easily goes from day to night. Cute!
This past weekend I served as a bridesmaid in my good friend’s wedding, and prior to the big day, had been endlessly searching for the perfect Grecian hairstyle to go with my very goddess-ey gown. When I looked online, I saw a lot of braids, curls and accessories, but none that really combined all three in the elegant, romantic way that I was looking for (especially since I have a cowlick and no bangs). Thankfully, my hair was in the hands of geniuses. Two amazing stylists from Salon Q in Tenafly, New Jersey knew exactly what to do with my long locks. They kept my hair soft in the front, added a pretty pin to either side of my head just above my ears, and incorporated a small braid on one side of my head that trailed back to a nest of pretty curls. I got the Greek goddess look I was hoping for and received tons of compliments on my ‘do! I couldn’t not share…
Normally, knots are not what you want in your hair, but for this adorable shoelace braid hair tutorial, knots are where it’s at. Basically — haha, you know this is so much harder to actually accomplish in real life, let’s be real — you tie two pieces of hair together, over and over picking up extra strands of hair along the way, as you would when you’re French braiding, creating this cool looped effect. Full tutorial is over at Cosmopolitan!
I remember when “True Blood” first debuted and we got our first glimpse of New Zealander Anna Paquin (then still best known for her Oscar-winning role in “The Piano” years before) as blonde waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Paquin looked so different and not like herself as a blonde, but thanks to her complete embodiment of the role, it didn’t take long before it became hard to imagine her as anything but a towhead. Well, Anna’s apparently been itching for a change, so when “True Blood” finished filming its final season this week, the actress went straight for the bottle. The dye bottle. Paquin posted these photos to social media yesterday, showing off her new purple and blue hair, and I think it looks amazing. Hmm, maybe it’s time I did a little experimenting… [E! Online]
Anna’s new look is daring, sure, but it’s also surprisingly “on trend,” as the lady mags say. Many fashionable celebs have dyed their hair some shade of purple, lilac, lavender or eggplant in the last few years. Maybe purple is the new ombre? Click through for more…
I can’t deny how pictures like this make me absolutely jealous of women with straight blond hair. How amazing does this braid look with her highlights? This braid-hawk is chic enough to wear to a wedding, classy enough to wear to the office, and funky enough to wear to an Iggy Azalea concert. Check out Hair Romance for how to do it!
This weekend, I’ll be standing by my friend’s side at her wedding as one of her trusty bridesmaids, and I can already tell you that my hair is going to look flawless, Beyoncé style. I’ve scoured the web for months trying to find the perfect hairstyle to go with my drapey, Grecian-style gown, and found a bunch of looks that guarantee I’ll achieve the Greek Goddess appeal I’m looking for. For all you brides and bridesmaids out there hoping to find that elegant, ancient look with a modern twist, use these ‘dos as your hair inspiration.
