Kerry Washington is a big fan of headbands, and she's worn them at a bevy of red carpet appearances, including her Django Unchained press tour. But her delicate silver number at the Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala Dinner last night renewed our faith in these hair accessories being wearable and not overwhelming the rest of the outfit. Whether you're keeping your fringe off your face or adding some femininity to an otherwise simple style, a thin silver headband is an ace hair accessory to have in your arsenal. Inspired by Kerry's pretty headband? Shop the look below!
This weekend, Nicole Kidman wowed the crowd with two different beauty looks, and you can steal them both for day-to-night inspiration. At an Omega press junket, Nicole wore her shoulder-length hair slightly curled on the ends with a rosy lip color. But for the Omega gala, she boosted her look with a head full of tight ringlets, flirty lashes, and a dark pink lip hue. On both occasions Nicole looked stunning, but which was her winning moment?

Just because the topknot trend has been around for a while doesn't mean it has to be boring. Just ask Kaley Cuoco. The Big Bang Theory actress added a subtle twist to her topknot at the HSUS Genesis Awards Benefit Gala, creating a folded-over coil with some serious panache.
Re-creating this look is a snap. After misting your hair down with some hair spray for grip, smooth it into a high ponytail. Divide the ponytail into two equal sections and twist them around each other, forming a rope look. Secure the ends with a thin elastic. Pull on the ponytail to thicken it and add some texture before wrapping it around the base of your ponytail. Pin where needed, add some more hair spray, and you'll have a twisted look worthy of a double take.

As one of the longest-running soap operas on television, Days of Our Lives has seen its fair share of beauty trends over the years, not to mention the introduction of high-definition television. "That was the biggest change," said lead makeup artist Joleen Rizzo, who has been with the show for 16 years. "We had to basically relearn our jobs." But unlike all the drama that happens for the residents of Salem in Days of Our Lives, which you can watch weekdays at 1 p.m. EDT on NBC, the makeup department is basically drama-less . . . except when it comes to figuring out which foundation to put on the male actors. Get the scoop when you keep reading.
