Top 10 Sexy Side Hairstyles

Side hairstyles are the latest trend on the red carpet and we can see why! Lucy Hale showed how the quick style change can make tousled waves look like a chic updo. Just pull one side of your hair back with a few bobby pins and spray with a light hold hairspray, such as Phyto Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hair Spray ($32, Ulta.com), to keep in place.

A casual way to work the side hairstyle is with a braid like Whitney Port’s. What sets this one apart from others is that it starts super loose on top but gets more and more structured as you move down the braid. Start with loose waves (maybe even tease a little!) and then braid halfway down the head.

The easiest way to get that sideswept look is with a deep side part like Jaime King’s. Because her hair is short, she didn’t have to pin any hair back. She just placed front strands behind her ear and gave the illusion of a side style. Styling tip: use a light dab of pomade, such as Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming Pomade ($18, Drugstore.com), to keep hair behind ear. But use just a tad because you don’t want hair to look greasy.Sexy Short Celebrity Hairstyles

In our opinion, the side pony can never go out of style. Sparks turned this 80s trend 2012 appropriate by placing the ponytail directly underneath the left ear and softening with loose strands on the other side. To get that tousled look, use a texturizing spray, such as Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($25, Buy.com), and scrunch with your fingers.

Nikki Reed was channeling Jessica Rabbit at The MTV Movie Awards with this side-swept updo. To get the look, create a side part and separate the strands you want to keep in front. Gather the rest of the hair and pin back in an updo or bun. Create that shine with a serum, such as Nexxus Pro-Mend Smoothing Shine Serum ($12.99, Walgreens.com).

Christina Milian
Two french braids can look a little childish, but pairing one with beachy waves like Christina Milian did is super sultry. To recreate, create a side par tand braid along your hairline, but stop at the nape of the neck. Hold hair in place with bobby pins. Let your locks fall to the side naturally. Use a sea salt spray, such as KMS California Hair Play Sea Salt Spray ($16, Baycitiesbeautystore.com), to get a little movement.

Side-swept bangs make the side style even more dramatic. Isla Fisher paired her short bangs with a messy side braid to downplay her dress. Tame your flyaways with Ouidad Climate Control, Frizz & Flyaway Fighter Taming Spray ($22, Ulta.com).

Play up your favorite messy bun by placing it on the side like Lenay Dunn, the host of 10 On Top did. Pull out strands in the bun and around the face for a fun carefree look.

If you want to amp up your side pony, take a cue from Audrina Patridge. The TV personality french braided one side while leaving the strands on the other side loose, voluminous and then secured in a low pony. Use a root lifting spray, such as Living Proof Full Root Lifting Spray ($26, Nordstrom.com), to give locks on top that oomph.

One of our favorite looks from the Oscars this year was Stacy Keibler’s who went with a simple sideswept ‘do. Just twist and pin! Lay off the hairspray for sexy, touchable hair.

20 Ways To Look Hot This Holiday

Sport Shiny Hair

To get an attention-grabbing hairdo, celebrity stylist Mark Townsend says to add a large dollop of Dove’s Body and Lift Mousse ($4.29, Drugstore.com) to damp hair, and blow dry it with a round brush. Divide hair into 3-inch sections and spritz some flexible hold hairspray onto each section before wrapping it around a 2 inch curling iron. Add extra shine by rubbing a small amount of Dove’s Nourishing Oil Leave-in Smoothing cream ($5.59, Drugstore.com) through hair.

Get Legs Mini Skirt Ready

Most women give their razors a long break in the winter and keep their legs covered, but great looking stems are sure to get a second glance. Get smooth skin with the Venus Embrace razor ($10.99, Drugstore.com) and Prtty Peaushun ($36.00, B-glowing.com), a cream with light-reflecting particles that will firm skin and camouflage imperfections.

Fashion Week SS2012: Favorite Fashion Round-up

Fashion Week was a whirlwind of  outrageous styles, sky-high heels, glamorous parties and celebrity sightings. We spyed Emma Roberts, Alexa Chung, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Stam, Beyonce, Heidi Klum, Johnny Weir, Nigel Barker, Olivia Palermo, Ramona Singer, Whitney Port, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelly Rutherford and Kourtney Kardashian, among others. Everyone loves to spot the celebs at Lincoln Center but fashion week is really about the designers and showcasing their new collections for Spring 2012. What shows stuck out in our mind?  Read on for our Fashion Week faves!

Zac Posen is known for ultra-feminine and figure-flattering styles (see picture above). This season he went retro chic, too, and we loved it!  Flirty dresses in fab prints and colorful solids.  No wonder he is a celeb red carpet favorite.

Rag and Bone was sporty with hoods, drawstrings and pops of neon orange. Super young and fresh!

Rebecca Taylor was also a feminine favorite with muted grays, flowy florals and lace cutouts.

We loved Diane von Furstenberg’s use of lace and color blocking. Her clothes were very wearable, as usual!

The Pamella Roland presentation rocked with models that turned up the attitude with dramatic poses and chic shades! Gowns and sequins galore, real Hollywood glamour.

Rachel Roy’s last look was absolutely breathtaking: a fabulous blue dress with a dramatic back was our hands-down favorite.

 

Models at Elie Tahari donned tailored pieces paired with gladiator boot-sandals for a Greco-Roman look. Tailored and at the same time feminine.

Ralph Lauren was total modern elegance. Think silk pastels with feather and sequin accents…very Spring!

This year Christian Siriano’s collection was his signature oversized chiffon ruffles and edgy footwear meets J.Crew-esque nautical striped tees. (PS, Did you know you can get wearable versions of his glam shoes at Payless?)

Jill Stuart used lots of pastels including pale coral, yellow and blue. There was a great mixture of pants, dresses, flowy skirts and silk fabrics in solids and soft ethereal prints (lots of Hermes orange too!).

Yigal Azrouel’s contemporary line Cut25 used color blocking to create a line of flawless casual basics. Sporty, clean lines reminiscent of 80’s surf culture.

Narciso Rodriguez’ collection was full of graphic prints, pretty below-the-knee shift dresses and lavender. Feminine and modern.

Donna Karan featured tribal prints and flattering fits with lots of a-line styles. Favorite cocktail dress: short purple, one shoulder number with perfect ruching.

Michael Kors went for an African-inspired collection with flowing earth tone fabrics and neutral animal prints. The accessories (bags and belts!) were the highlight.

Prabal Gurung had one of the best collections we have seen! Lots of violet, fabulous use of sheer fabrics and prints, black and white.  Simply gorgeous…We want everything!

Helmut Lang is one of our all time favorite designers and this edgy collection did not disappoint.  We love his signature use of draping in severe black and white with a splash of daffodil yellow for spring.

We recently sat down with Whitney Port, star of MTV reality series The City. She is now taking the fashion industry by storm with her clothing line, Whitney Eve. With her great sense of style and model-like looks, Whitney has created a brand that reflects her—edgy yet chic.

Katrina Caspelich: When did you first discover your love for fashion?
Whitney Port: I have loved fashion since I was a little girl. I always worked behind the scenes in my dad’s [men’s clothing] warehouse, ticketing garments, folding sweatshirts. I began my career in fashion interning at Women’s Wear Daily.

KC: When did you realize you wanted to be a designer?
WP: After working for Kelly Cutrone [fashion PR guru and star of reality show, Kell On Earth] for a little while, I realized that my passion was more creative than business.

KC: What inspires you when you design?
WP: I draw all of my design inspiration from my life. I try to keep the easy and casual California girl in me, mixed with a New York City girl. So, effortless, vibrant, and empowering.

KC: How does it feel to join the ranks of fashion’s most sought-after brands?
WP: It is an amazing feeling. I look up to so many talented designers, and to have been able to launch my collection during Fashion Week with world-renowned designers really was a dream come true.

KC: As a celebrity, do you feel you have to prove something to critics?
WP: When I first launched my collection and showed at Fashion Week with the cameras rolling, it was definitely difficult. I also was very nervous and did feel the need to prove something to my critics. However, as I gain more experience and my skin gets a bit thicker, I really want to prove something to myself and my fans and the people that support me.

KC: Where are you based?
WP: I am mostly based in L.A., but when I am shooting The City, I live in New York City.

KC: Who would you love to see wearing your clothing?

KC: Who are your favorite designers?
WP: Zac Posen, Valentino, Alexander Wang.

KC: Who are you most inspired by in the fashion industry?
WP: I am incredibly inspired by Diane von Furstenberg. Her design ability, mixed with the effort to empower women and give back, makes me strive to speak to all women through my designing.

KC: What is your favorite thing to wear?
WP: A t-shirt, jean shorts, and Converse.

KC: What is your must-have fashion item for this coming fall/winter season?
WP: Isabel Marant jackets.

KC: What clothes should everyone own?
WP: The figure-flattering little black dress, a leather motorcycle jacket, and that perfect pair of figure-flattering dark jeans.

KC: When you shop, what are your guilty pleasures?
WP: For lingerie—Belabumbum bras, Hanky Panky underwear. Also, beauty products.

KC: If you weren’t a designer, what would you be?
WP: It would have to be something in fashion; perhaps I’d open my own store or be a buyer.

KC: What are your hobbies?
WP: Drawing, traveling, looking for design inspiration and great vintage pieces.

KC: What do you do for fun?
WP: Hike, cook with my family, go to concerts.

KC: TV star, clothing designer, book author. What next?
WP: Continuing to design and develop my clothing line.

KC: What is a fun fact no one knows about you?
WP: I was actually an art major in college before switching to gender studies.

KC: What is your favorite piece from the Whitney Eve fall 2010 collection?
