Ain't no party like an onscreen party because an onscreen party . . . offers fresh inspiration for retro beauty looks you can copy this weekend. Keep reading to find hairstyles from our favorite holiday scenes, both classics and more current. These looks have already been immortalized on film, but they will look brand new when you sport them this season.
When Louis Vuitton tweeted a photo of Gisele Bündchen in its latest (and Marc Jacobs's last) campaign, we were immediately distracted by the top model's super voluminous, textured, and — dare we day — Jersey hair. Just take a minute and dissect it with us. Gisele is draped around one of Louis Vuitton's gorgeous bags, sporting smoky eyes, contoured cheeks, and some seriously teased-up, sexy tresses. And she is working that bump (sans the Bump It).
In a world where people are loving Kate Middleton's sleek blowouts and talking about how touchable straight hair is, it's nice to see a nod to the hair our mothers would have loved in 1986. There are two things you need to have to re-create Gisele's look at home: texturizing spray and a good teasing comb. After styling your hair the way you want to, section off the front part. It should be as wide as the mid point of your eyebrows and extend back to the crown of your head. Pin the rest of your hair away.
Divide the sectioned-off hair into three sections. Working from front to back, backcomb your hair with the teasing comb at the root, spritz with a texturizing spray, and then smooth it back with the comb again. Continue with the other two sections. Use your fingers to smooth down the front section of hair and to give it that piecey, textured look that Gisele's has. Finish with a healthy dose of texture spray, a few spritzes of hairspray, and your best Gisele smolder.
From Beyoncé's fan incident to Miley's alien-esque bleached brows, we're recapping all the major beauty moments from 2013.

Marc Jacobs blew us away with his massive beauty line, a 33-year-old Justin Bieber fan received $100,000 in plastic surgery to look like his idol, and Miley, well, was just bein' Miley. Which moments were your favorite? See them all in our breakdown. On Kirbie: Contrarian jacket, Equipment blouse

We're all about a statement lip, but last night Christina Milian debuted a truly bold pout at the Drake concert in Philadelphia. She pulled her hair back into a sleek topknot and made up her face with silvery smoky eye shadow and a satin-finish black lipstick. The metallic wash of eye color and the standout lip shade made it quite the daring beauty look. But we want to know: would ever wear black lipstick?
We've gotten to the point where we're comfortable not knowing what Miley is going to do next with her hair (see her shaved eyebrows and wig play). But during her performance at Jingle Ball in Florida, Miley brought back a style we'd seen already: her duo of buns. She'd first debuted this hairstyle at this year's VMAs (below, left), but this is the first time we've seen it since.
Miley is obviously partial to the topknot, seeing as it was her hairstyle of choice when her hair was long enough (above, right). We're guessing that these two tiny buns she's been wearing are just the latest incarnation of that style. But now the question is, when do her double buns get their own Twitter handle?
'Tis the season for holiday shopping, Champagne toasting, family visiting, and plenty of festive beauty moments, too. Whether it's finding the right amount of sparkle, revealing a glowing complexion, or just mastering a braided updo, we're sharing our editor-approved picks to get you through the rest of 2013 in style.
Celebrities like to stand out, and sometimes all they need to do is dye their hair or go for the big chop to make headlines. The year 2013 was one of major celebrity hair changes, including Jennifer Aniston's bob, Beyoncé's pixie, and Jennifer Lawrence's bob. Their stunning new cuts made short hair a big beauty trend of the year, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. We've pulled together the top 64 hairstyle changes of the year, and we're calling on you to help us determine who revealed the best new look of the year. Click through Shailene Woodley to Nicole Richie and Rihanna to Anne Hathaway, and help us crown the winner of our Best Hair Change of 2013 bracket!

OK, we admit the only reason we've followed the entire Lord of the Rings saga is because of Orlando Bloom. Allure talked to Legolas about his hair makeover for the new movie. Yes, we're jealous, too!
Gee, their hair looks perfect, even as they slay a thousand orcs. In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom leap and bound while battling a legion of foes, but their lustrous tresses always manage to look just so. We caught up with the action heartthrobs at a screening hosted by the Cinema Society and Moncler to discover the secrets of their (borrowed) Elvish hair.
Orlando Bloom: "I was actually learning lines from Romeo and Juliet while I was doing hair and makeup, likely infuriating my makeup artist. I did indeed go blond again. But it's a wig — the same wig, in fact. They kept it from The Lord of the Rings. It was actually in pretty good shape. It's one of those funny things, because I love the wig, love how it works. I love that I get to be a blond!"
Evangeline Lilly: "The hair in the film is elegant, beautiful and structured, clean, simple, strong, feminine. I got so tired of beach hair after ten years working on Lost. Elves are meant to be perfect beings. But, believe it or not, it was only two hours of hair and makeup, which is really standard for a film. For the wig, it took half an hour to wrap my hair, and then half an hour to put it on. The ears were about half an hour. I often play with my ears — it's a weird tick — so [the makeup artist] would just sit there and play with my ears for half an hour, so that was perfect. Orcs, meanwhile, were five hours in and two hours out, while at the end of the day, I was finished in 15 minutes."
