Liv Tyler looks soft and lovely even when she's wearing a hard-edged look, and nowhere is that more apparent than her hairstyle at yesterday's Target GO Designer Collective launch. On the left side of her head, it looked like she was wearing her hair in long, soft waves, but on the right side, she had a wraparound braid. It was an interesting synthesis of two pretty looks, but do you think it worked on Liv? And would you try this style out yourself?
For the Red Riding Hood premiere yesterday, Amanda Seyfried chose a pretty, soft brick-red lipstick, complemented by black, winged-out liner.

Celebrity stylist Mark Townsend had quite the busy awards season, working with clients like Lea Michele for the Grammys and Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence for the Academy Awards. He said that Jennifer has been working on getting healthy hair. "It's in great shape," he explained. "So I wanted to show it off." He brought Jennifer images of models from '80s fashion magazines with thick, healthy hair to give her some ideas. To find out how to re-create this hairstyle at home, just keep reading.
