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?
After being markedly absent from her husband Prince William's side at this week's Winter Whites Gala, Kate Middleton's royal mane made its reappearance. The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out on Friday for the annual SportsAid gala today, looking every bit the glamorous royal. Her hair was styled in her signature, glossy blowout, which sported just a hint of wave at the ends and around her face. Kate reportedly fired her hairdresser earlier this month, which would send most women into a hair tailspin. But it looks like Kate hasn't missed a beat. If only we all were so lucky.
We'd just about stopped counting how many times Rita Ora has changed her hair this year, but it looks like she's gone and done it again. After dying her hair platinum last month, Rita has cut her length a bit shorter and added a sideswept fringe. The overall look gives off a serious rocker vibe. Are you a fan of the cut?
Just because it's Winter doesn't mean your hairstyling should suffer. We spoke to Jenny Balding, styling and grooming expert for Cutler/Redken, to find out how to get the most out of your hair this season.
POPSUGAR: We saw plenty of hair tucked into jackets coming down the runways. How can we translate the look to real life?
Jenny Balding: This is the easiest way to transform your style into a chic look. This works best on high-collared coats or jackets. Leave your hair tucked in, and loosen the roots a little with you fingers to give a nonchalant feel to your hair.
PS: What are some styles that look good with a Winter hat, but you can revive once you're indoors?
JB: Braiding your hair is a great way to style your hair in the Winter as well as Summer. Because even if it becomes a little disheveled, when you take your hat off, it will still look good — if not better, a little lived-in. [There are] so many ways to braid your hair, from the halo braid to the French braid or off to one side.
PS: Any tricks to making braids, which seem like a Summer style, feel fresh for Winter?
JB: A clean, simple side braid looks so good right now especially with a great hat. Keeping it simple is key. Sweep to one side, and braid just halfway down, and tie. This is a refreshing change from all the fishtail looks of past seasons.
PS: What are easy ways to style second-day hair for the Winter?
JB: Dry shampoo works wonders to revive second-day hair. [It] gives instant body and texture, and makes the hair more manageable to style.
PS: Any other Winter trends you want people to know they can pull of this season?
JB: For the ultimate chic style to wear with a scarf, sweep your hair up into a twisted, disheveled updo. Let flyaway strands fly, and give your hair some extra volume by dusting some Redken Powder Grip into the roots first.
While the rest of us were chowing down on some turkey on Thanksgiving Day, Selena Gomez was sizzling on the football field. She styled her chestnut hair in a curled half-updo during her halftime performance, while the Oakland Raiders played the Dallas Cowboys in the annual Thanksgiving Day matchup. Her makeup kept with the day's theme, as she opted for a cranberry cat eye. Black nail polish finished the look. Are you a fan of Selena's Thanksgiving Day style?
