2013 will go down in beauty history as the year of the It haircut, and we've got plenty of them to choose from. Jennifer Lawrence recently drove the star power of the pixie up a few notches, but there were plenty of pixies before her. Jada Pinkett Smith also knows a thing or two about It haircuts, as she's recently been sporting 2013's edgy style: the undercut. But 2013's first It haircut was somewhere between edgy and sweet, and it was the lob. Nicole Richie was one of the first ladies to rock this style, and she's kept it all year. All three of these styles are synonymous with 2013, but which was your favorite cut of the year?
From her studded brooches and bobby pins to the gilded wreaths and turbans, Jennifer Behr is the fairy godmother of hair accessories. And her newest collection has everything you need to get through all your upcoming holiday events. In fact, Kate Middleton was just spotted in a tiara that reminds us of Behr's Grecian headband design. You don't have to be royalty to don one of these swoon-worthy accessories that also look amazing on your holiday shopping (or wish!) list.
Frizz seems to be the one hair woe that affects all women regardless of hair type, mainly because it sprouts up for a number of different reasons. While some women have figured out ways of keeping their fuzz down day to day, there are times when those pesky hairs pop up regardless of what you do to avoid them. When you're stuck in a hairy situation like this, there are easy ways to disguise the pouf that seems to be taking over your head:
- Try some hair oil: Hair oils are a more natural serum when it comes to zapping frizz. Work something like Kiehl's Smoothing Hair Oil Concentrate ($25) into your hair to depuff instantly.
- Slick on some moisture: Start by sweeping some lotion onto your arms and legs. When you're done, run your fingers through your hair, avoiding the roots. The thin layer of moisturizer will smooth down your frizz. Just make sure to use a light touch or you could find yourself with a greasy situation.
- Spritz some hair spray: Spraying some directly onto your hair won't do much, so try this handy trick — mist a lightweight hair spray, like Oribe Superfine Hairspray ($19) onto the palms of both of your hands. Before it has time to dry, swipe your hands over your hair, focusing on the frizziest spots. The spray will keep the fuzz at bay without weighing it down.
- Snag a dryer sheet: If you're running out the door and don't have any product on hand, reach for a dryer sheet. Smooth it over your hair for a quick way to remove your frizz. Bonus: this technique also works if you're hair is full of static, another major hair woe in the Winter.
At last night's L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth event, Lea Michele wore her hair in a long textured plait that reminded us of our schoolyard days, but we doubt Lea's mom did this french braid before she hit the red carpet. The twisted style appears sleek from the front yet has a more bohemian vibe from the side, with Lea's ombré hair color giving the braid a two-toned feel. She kept her makeup subtle with bronze hues on the cheeks and a neutral pink lip. See her beautiful braid from more angles below!

At last night's annual Jingle Ball concert, Selena Gomez shocked fans when she came on stage sporting a black wig. The singer opted for a blunt cut for her performance, which was surprisingly similar to the latest It haircut that celebrities like Rihanna and Jessica Paré have been seen sporting. But the hairstyle is far from permanent; Selena was spotted with her normal long locks before her performance while walking the red carpet. We think that Selena looks gorgeous with both styles, but which one do you prefer?

When it comes to celebrities wanting to debut their new hairstyles, a red carpet just isn't good enough for some stars. So what better way to show the world their new 'do than on Instagram? Ahead, we've rounded up some of the stars who have shown off their new cuts and colors on social media.
Reese Witherspoon isn't afraid of a hair change, having gone from blond to brunette for a role earlier this year. And now the actress has stepped out with a shorter look. Reese has been teasing us with photos of the cut on her WhoSay account, but this weekend was the first time we got a clearer glimpse of her shorter strands. She was spotted with a shoulder-length lob over the weekend, and her color looked just a touch lighter than her most recent appearances. The cut isn't a drastic change, but it still creates a new look for Reese. Are you a fan?
We had to do a double take when we spotted Sienna Miller's hair on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards. Has the actress dyed her hair a subtle shade of pink? It seems so, but it Sienna chose an interesting part of her hair to highlight. Instead of all-over color or an ombré effect, Sienna dyed only the front midsection of her hair with a subtle rose gold hue. We've seen this look on her before, though. Back in 2011, Sienna stepped out sporting pink hair during a trip to Ibiza with Tom Sturridge. Clearly she knows what she likes, but are you a fan of her pink hair?
