Nothing says “confidence” like rocking an updo. A voluminous topknot elevates a simple jean and t-shirt look and a sleek pony can add a chic touch to your cocktail dress. Our friends at the Daily Makeover have pulled together their favorite 10 dressed down ‘dos and letting you in on the secrets of how to achieve them at home!
Kendall’s updo is quite chic and actually very simple to recreate. Pull hair back into a ponytail, braid the hair hanging down, and wrap it around your elastic to create a bun, and voila!
We love this voluminous updo on Ali Landry. You can get the same great look by pulling hair back into a ponytail. Pull the end of the ponytail straight up, and use a brush to brush downward toward the scalp. Do this all away around the ponytail to create volume. Wrap the ponytail around the elastic and secure with bobby pins. Use a texturizing gel, like Shu Uemura Yokan Craft ($38, Shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com), to slick back any flyaways.
A ponytail is the perfect summer hair solution to keep you feeling cool and looking hot. Get inspired by these celebs’ sexy summer ponies that are easy to style at home.
Diane’s Side Pony
A loose and low pony, like this one sported by Diane Kruger, looks effortlessly sexy. You can always jazz up the style with an accessory, like this black beret.
Stars made their way down the red carpet for last night’s Grammy Awards. See which looks rocked and which looks hit a sour note.
Best: Taylor Swift
Taylor donned her most mature look on the red carpet, sparkling in a silk Zuhair Murad mermaid gown. “It’s one of my favorite dresses I’ve gotten to wear,” she told Seacrest before the show. “I saw it months ago, and I said ‘We’ve got to save this for the Grammys.'” We can see why!
Worst: Nikki Minaj
Nikki’s goal has to be to appear on every worst dressed list! Her scarlett Versace cape with striking black beading was daring, but that’s the only nicety we’ll give her! With a pope look-alike on her right arm, all we can think is – How sacrilegious can you get? Oh wait, then there was her Grammy performance…
Rihanna’s latest tattoo and recent reports that she went back to Chris Brown had us worried she was headed for a breakdown. If she is, you would never know it by looking at her. She was an absolute knockout in a Giorgio Armani dress she helped design. If this is what going crazy looks like, sign us up!
