10 Celeb-Inspired Hairstyles to Try This Spring

You always see celebs walk the red carpet with intricate updos. But what about hairstyles that could update your daily look? See 10 celebs sporting 10 springy hairstyles and tips from the pros on how to get each look!

RACHEL MCADAMS

 

Three words: EASY SEXY HAIR. Pay attention—this look can have you looking hotter than Rihanna’s trendy tousled waves at the Grammys. In less than half the time. Promise.

But you have to have at least a little natural wave to make it work.

PRODUCTS:

Blowdryer with diffuser

Wide tooth comb

1-inch Iron

Pureology Illuminating Curl Stylist 24 Hour Shaping Lotion ($24 on Ulta.com)

Pureology Colour Stylist Anti-Breakage Twist Shine Texturizer ($20.99 on Sleekhair.com)

Pureology Colour Stylist Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray ($14.50 on Amazon.com)

HOW TO:

Start with hair fresh out of the shower. Do not dry with blowdryer or towel. Instead, blot the water out.

TIP: Coarse terrycloth towels can disrupt curl patterns. Try a microfiber towel for less frizz! Sleeping on a microfiber pillowcase will also keep curls better.

Section the hair into two or three horseshoe-shaped sections around your head. Starting at the nape of your neck, twist in a small amount of Pureology Colour Stylist Illuminating Curl Stylist 24 Hour Shaping Lotion (maybe a couple pearls per section). Wrap sections around one or two fingers, depending on how much wave you have. Next, diffuse hair with blow-dryer on low to medium force and heat. Do not separate the hair as it dries. Instead, cup the curls in the diffuser, holding the nozzle several inches off the scalp. Dry hair to 90%.

TIP: Over-drying hair is a frizz catastrophe! When in doubt, stop sooner rather than later and let hair air-dry the rest of the way.

Finally, apply a nickel-size amount of Pureology Colour Stylist Anti-Breakage Twist Shine Texturizer and work into hands. Run the defining cream through waves to break up curls and add shine. If needed, use the 1-inch iron by coil-wrapping around the barrel, holding the ends loose to keep the organic feel. This trick is great to polish unruly shorter layers or fringe!

Best: Jessica Chastain
The Best Supporting Actress nominee strove away from her simple red carpet looks and donned a black and gold Alexander McQueen gown. We love the contrast between the tight bustier and flowing skirt. She completed her look with loose curls and Harry Winston yellow diamond jewels worth $2 million!

Best: Emma Stone
Emma proved just how smart she is. She chose a gown that closely resembled Nicole Kidman’s Balenciaga from the 2008 Oscars. It was a hit then and it is a hit now. She paired the scarlet Giambattista Valli dress with Louis Vuitton rubies.

Get The Hottest Oscar Hairstyles At Home

by Megan Segura

We finally made it the most glamorous awards show of the year: the Oscars! Just as we expected, we saw some gorgeous gowns and amazing hairstyles. While we can’t help you score a vintage Dior dress, we have great tips to get your hair looking red-carpet ready. Wella Professionals was responsible for some of the best looks of the night, and now their celebrity stylists are sharing their tips on how they created these hot Hollywood hairstyles.

Michelle Williams
Michelle’s pixie is very modern and sophisticated chic. The hair has just enough texture to make the look sweet, yet edgy.

To Get The Look: First, start by applying Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte to wet hair, then allow it to air dry. With a small round brush, finish off with a blow dry that gives the hair more height, then use your hands to set the part and bangs. Finish the look with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to set in place.

2012 Oscar Hair Predictions From The Pros

Hollywood’s “Night of Nights” is right around the corner, and while we don’t know who will take home the oh-so-coveted Oscar Awards, we do know that all you beauty junkies out there will be mentally casting your vote for Oscar superlatives – who has the best dress, the best accessories and of course… who has the best hair?

We spoke with the pros at Wella Professionals, the hair brand who has a very impressive roster of red carpet hair under their belt already from this season, including Madonna, Michelle Williams, Claire Danes, Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, Emily Blunt and Shailene Woodley, to get the inside scoop on what hair looks will heat up the red carpet this Sunday.

Graceful Sheen
“We will see a peak in fluid textures and warm tones that suggest effortless elegance and healthy, shiny hair that shows a lot of movement and bounce,” states Wella Professionals Color Ambassador Aura Friedman. “Expensive and Luxurious are words you could use to explain this look – maximize this effect by asking your colorist to use Wella Professionals Haircolor to give you a soft shade with warm undertones that will best complement your skin tone.”

Aura recommends her A-list clientele use Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner, which is designed to seal in color while leaving locks irresistibly smooth to the touch.

“Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier is a red-carpet favorite,” adds Celebrity Stylist Andy LeCompte, “that smoothes the hair surface so it can better prepare the hair for styling.” Andy also uses Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight Shine Spray on his clientele to create the most sheen and expensive looking finish to any end look.

Angelic Side-Chignons
LeCompte predicts that celebs will lean toward classic styles with a play on texture and symmetry. “There will be a lot of deep side parts and loose ponys, bobs and chignons tied to the side.” This style can be customized to accentuate any gown, face shape or hair accessory. “It also lessens the stuffiness of that prom feeling and adds a more up-to-date, laissez-faire feeling.

The options here are endless, but no matter the look, you can use Wella Professionals products to perfect the end look. Apply 3-5 pumps of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier hair primer to create an even surface on each and every hair follicle before drying the hair, creating a foundation for the most luxurious looking end-look. To keep a style looking fresh yet modernly undone, use a light-hold hairspray such as Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to hold the hair while keeping an overall sense of liquid movement.

The red carpet arrivals of the 84th Annual Academy Awards®, will be airing February 26th on NBC. Be sure to join Wella Professionals on Twitter and Facebook LIVE during the red carpet arrivals (between 4pm and 7pm EST), along with their special guest panel of hair pros Aura Friedman, Rick Wellman and Mark Garrison to get tips, tricks and commentary on the hair looks of the evening.

2012 SAG Awards Best And Worst

Best: Sofia Vergara
It doesn’t even seem worth it to mention how amazing Sofia Vergara looked at last night’s SAG Awards. It’s like saying the sky is blue. At this point we know she’s going to show up in a gorgeous dress with great hair and makeup.

Best: Emily Blunt
Emily Blunt showed up wearing one of our favorite looks of the night. Not only did the neon green hue compliment her dark locks and creamy skin, but it’s one of the hot colors for this coming Spring.

Worst: Busy Phillips
Do you think Michelle Williams ever gets embarrassed showing up with best friend Busy Phillips? She often ends up on the Worst Dressed list, and this hideous ensemble is just one example of why.

Natalie’s post-baby body looked amazing draped in this maroon Giambattista Valli gown. Her simple hair and makeup helped keep the focus on her frock.

Best: Zoe Saldana
Zoe had our jaws dropping for two reasons last night. She wowed in this white Givenchy number and she showed up with co-star Bradley Cooper, fueling rumors that the two are dating. Not sure what we want more: the dress or her date.

Worst: Kristen Wiig
This dress might actually have looked fantastic on Kristen Wiig, but there’s one accessory that just kept it from being a red-carpet winner. Can you guess which one? If you picked the giant dog collar necklace, then you are right. This large choker needs to go back to whatever S&M closet it escaped from.

Best: Rose Byrne
We know this isn’t a look everyone is going to go for, but just hear us out. If you want to rock a pantsuit, this is how it’s done. The sparkly Elie Saab outfit paired with Rose Byrne’s chic blunt cut makes for a fabulous 70s-inspired look reminiscent of Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. Bravo, Rose!

Sarah Hyland may play a high school student in Modern Family, but she is actually in her 20s, which is why we loved this simple yet sexy dress. Her soft makeup and upswept hair allowed us to focus on the beautiful embellishments of her Temperley gown.

Shailene Woodley has looked beautiful in the past, which is why we were shocked to see her make this awful style choice. The clinging fabric hangs on all the wrong parts, and since her hair is pulled back in a low ponytail, there is no where else for our focus to go.

Best: Emma Stone
Emma Stone continued her red carpet style streak with this Alexander McQueen dress. The length and shape make the look fun and flirty, and her bright pink lipstick only adds to it.

Best: Octavia Spencer
Not only does Octavia Spencer keep winning, but she keeps working it on the red carpet. Her dress is so very age appropriate without being completely boring. The soft grey was a popular color at this awards show, and it looked great on her.

Worst: Emilia Clarke
We’re not sure what The Game of Thrones’ star was thinking when she showed up in this dress, but we’re definitely not fans. The black and white combo can look sleek and simple when executed correctly, but when it’s not, it comes off as a bad 80s prom dress.

Best: Naya Rivera
The Glee star really brought out the sexy with this Naeem Khan dress. It showed just enough skin without being too revealing, and the beaded detailing was absolute perfection.

Photo: © Jason Merritt/Getty Images
Best: Ashlee Simpson
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Ashlee Simpson at a red carpet event, but she dazzled in a flapper-esque black dress. She even seemed demure covering her cleavage with sheer black tulle, while escorting her Boardwalk Empire actor boyfriend.

Worst: Jenna Ushkowitz
If style were a class at the Glee high school, then Jenna most certainly failed. Her dress hardly seems formal enough for a winter formal, nevermind a red carpet awards show.

Best: Viola Davis
Viola Davis looked like a Grecian goddess in Marchesa last night. Her gold jewelry and eyeshadow only helped accentuate the embroidery of her dress without being too matchy.

Worst: Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain is so beautiful and so talented, so why, oh why, can’t she find a proper stylist? Although she did slightly better at this awards show, she was certainly not Best Dressed material. The light blue dress was far too simple and didn’t do her figure any favors.

Worst: Ellie Kemper
There seems to be a trend of funny women ending up on Worst Dressed lists. This particular gown was so wrong. The style and fit had such a dated feel to it, and her teal eyeshadow was overkill.

Worst: Gretchen Mol
It seems the Boardwalk Empire actress was wearing a mix between a Greek toga and a kimono. Whatever the case, she is far too pretty to be seen in such an awful dress.

Worst: Jane Krakowski
Jane Krakowski’s dress looked like it couldn’t make up it’s mind. While the silhouette of the dress was nice, it took a weird turn at the gold Selena-like bustier.

Easy Tricks To Create Golden Globes Hairstyles!

The stars may have spent hours in hair and makeup before hitting the red carpet, but we have the scoop from the Wella Professionals hairstylists, who created some of the evening’s most glamorous hairstyles, on how to get these looks at home without breaking a sweat.

Want red carpet hair? We’re giving away 10 packs that retail for $100 of Wella Professionals hairstyling products that were used to create these glamorous looks. Just tell us in the comments area below which red carpet hairstyle you like best to be entered to win!

 

 Michelle Williams
“Michelle looks incredible with this short, modern Mia Farrow inspired style,” says LA stylist Chris McMillian, who created her look. “It’s a retro ’60s combined with Flapper flair type of look that shows there’s still a lot of glamour and versatility with short hair.”

To Get The Look: First, apply Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse to wet hair, then use your hands to shape your hair while it air dries. Once dry, lift up your roots and blow dry upward to create extra lift at the crown. Then, apply Wella Professionals Mirror Polish for a glossy finish and to help smooth hair into shape. Add a simple black headband with a jeweled brooch to give this retro look a modern spin. Push bangs to the side where the jewel is positioned for a heavy fringe effect.

Try on these hairstyles in the Makeover Studio! 

Claire Danes
Claire Danes looked every bit the belle of the ball in a gorgeous black and white J. Mendel gown and a soft, swept-back chignon. Hairstylist, Peter Butler, created Danes’ look by envisioning a modern-day Grace Kelly.

To Get The Look: The trick to creating a soft, flattering updo to is to first create a lot of volume. Butler used Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse on damp hair, then blow dryed it. Next, curl hair with a large barrel curling iron for extra volume, then pull hair back into a high pony and wrap it into a tight knot. (Danes’ look was only secured with TWO hair pins!) Lastly, comb back hair with fingers, coated with Wella Professionals Mirror Polish Shine Serumfor a soft sheen. Spritz with Wella Professionals Stay Essential hairsprayfor a hold that will last all night.

Madonna
The perfect look for Madge to compliment her flowing Reem Acra dress? Effortless, soft waves, of course. Wella Professionals celebrity stylist, Andy LeCompte created this stunning ‘do for the diva and winner of this year’s Golden Globes’ Best Original Song for a Motion Picture.

To Get The Look: Rough dry hair to manipulate and emphasize natural texture. Then, mist hair with Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray to protect it from thermal heat while also adding texture. Use a 1-inch flat iron on hair to create soft S formations and add a natural wave texture. Finish with a mist of Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray.
