For a semi-formal occasion such as a party or dance, you’ll want your hair to look dressier than your everyday look. Today we look for inspiration to celebrities who lead the way in fashion and beauty. From glamourous Hollywood curls and below-the-shoulder faux bob to a sexy fishtail braid we would like nothing more than to achieve their looks.
The sexy hairstyle is taking over Hollywood, one star at a time. The real accumulation took place on the 2013 Golden Globe Awards where many stars including Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez sported the flattering loose, touchable waves that would fall to one side. The secret lies in accentuating very long face-framing layers with loose rolling curls. Good news is that side-swept bangs are flattering on every face shape and they work for all hair types.
So you’ve got long locks you aren’t willing to chop off, but you’ve always envied your friends’ stylish short hairstyles? Here’s an idea: try a faux bob, the latest hair trend as seen on many A-listers including Kate Beckinsale and Mila Kunis. The general guidelines states that the best looks are based on wavy hair and plenty of volume. Just pin your streaks underneath for a loose, round look to recreate the slightly unkempt, yet sultry look.
After wowing us all awards season with many different types of braids, we have noticed that a lot of celebrities (like Blake Lively and Nicole Scherzinger) have been rocking a messy fishtail braid. The classic plait elevates it to a high-pony-fishtail hybrid with the slight wisps and carefree texture. Want to recreate the look on yourself? Once the fishtail braid is complete, loosen it up with fingers and pull out some pieces to give it a young, modern feeling.
To enhance the semi-formal style even more, adorn your polished hairstyle with formal looking pins, barrettes, and elastics.
