Diane Kruger may have some of the best braids in the business, but when it comes to pure chicness, Zoe Saldana wins in that department. And since Zoe's strands are medium-length, many of her coiffures can be duplicated on hair of varying lengths. So whether your hair is shorter or longer, there's a Zoe look here to inspire.
It's Saturday, and that means it's time to choose your favorite celebrity trend of the week. Over the past seven days or so, we saw some pretty covetable updos out there, but whose cool coiffure gets your vote of approval? Is it Zoe Saldana and her fun, chic, twisted-to-the side style, Elizabeth Olsen and her tousled topknot, or Taylor Swift and her multibraided bun? Vote now and tell us which one you like the most.
Fall and butterflies might not go hand in hand (uh, wing in wing), but as model Bar Refaeli proves, any time is the right time to add a touch of whimsy to your beauty look. At yesterday's 2011 Whitney Museum of American Art gala, Bar wore a frothy Marchesa gown paired with a trendy braided updo. But the pièce de résistance, however, was the Lorraine Schwartz butterfly brooch affixed to the side of her hair. Not only does a buggy accessory make a perfect conversation piece, but it's also a great way to channel your inner kid every now and then. Shop the widget below to create your own buzz.
Move over ombré, there's a new trend in town: the braided updo. We've seen lots of stars sporting similar looks as of late, and now Nikki Reed is the latest to join the plaited bunch. At last night's Just Dance 3 launch in LA, Nikki donned a series of braids that, while a little more difficult to re-create, can be easier to achieve if you think of it in sections. See it all broken down for you now.
Last night at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards, many stars on the red carpet opted for sexy waves, but there also were a few slicked-back updos in the crowd that really stood out. Need a way to stay cool this warm-weathered season, all while actually looking cool? Check out five sleek updos that not only keep hair off the forehead and neck, but also happen to be alluring.
Once the mercury starts rising, there's no respite from the heat, especially if your hair isn't already super short. But putting your hair up in a ponytail all the time can look sloppy, and more importantly, it can get boring. Don't settle for the same old thing when it comes to your hair this year. Check out these 15 pretty, easy styles and get stylish without (literally) breaking a sweat.
Move over, milkmaid-style braids, because there's a new kind of braid in town. In lieu of this traditional style of braiding, which wraps around the front of the hair much like a headband, people are wearing parted-to-the-side, braided-on-the-side updos. While out and about in LA, Gwen Stefani funkified the style with chunky braids casually swept to the back, while Emily Blunt opted for a more structured take on the trend, and Diane Kruger went for a softly tousled version. Will you be wearing this look, too?
Sage found an image on Tumblr with a French braid done in a "S" shape. I duplicated it for her for school:
