mane event

Fliipping through some magazines this morning has me panting for a new hairstyle.  Bored with the old 'do? Looking for something new and exciting to top off a great outfit? I have collected my favorite celebrity hairstyles for you here- famed by the last decade, looks that will never be out of style!

Swept Away

Sandra Bullock wears this style with ease, soft curls and light teasing swept to the side and knotted at the nape of her neck.  It is elegant and sophisticated, with a soft and relaxed feel.  This traditionally warm-weather trend is great for a soft "down" look while maintaining a cool neck... however I anticipate this look to be a big hit this winter, as it makes room for cozy scarves and sweaters to warm up to!

Knotted Up

Sienna Miller and Jessica Alba both look stunning with their hair braided.  Whether the braid is large or small, it adds new texture to any hairstyle, and becomes a focal point for the ensemble.  Twist in some gold ribbon or a pretty bow to add more flare to this versatile and eye catching do!

Cropped & Cute

Carey Mulligan has mastered the 2010 pixie cut... inspired by fashion icon Twiggy in the '60s.  The bold blond paired with the extreme cut makes for one stunning look! Dress up this simple do with bold jewelry and big eyes... and before you take the plunge, make sure that you are prepared for the significant change in length!

Old Hollywood

The old Hollywood hairstyle has been around forever, and continues to make a style statement on every red carpet.  The softly manicured curls, paired with a severe side part and classic makeup creates a look for the ages, one that seems to compliment every face.  Achieve this look by creating soft curls with minimum frizz, adding a serum over the top to control the curl.  Part your hair deeply to the side, and play up the red lips and dark lashes.... this do is sure to turn cameras your direction!
