Forget the boring blowout and show everyone up with a serious statement bun. The thick braid around Amanda Seyfried’s updo is gorgeous, especially paired with the sleekness of the rest of her hair and an exaggerated smoky eye is the perfect finishing touch!
Gossip Girl may be over, but Blake’s beauty icon status is hotter than ever! Her wavy, half-up, half-down locks are super-sexy (hello—the girl snagged Ryan), but they feel effortless at the same time. Just leave a few face-framing strands out to really seal the “I just ran out of the house like this” deal.
Whether you’re looking to get lucky under the mistletoe or start the new year off with a ball drop smooch, sleek waves are always a good way to go! To get Shay Mitchell’s look, use a one-inch barrel curling iron to create texture all over, then finish with a shine spray and a swipe of bright berry lipstick.
Add some sparkle to a voluminous updo with one giant hair clip (or a smaller cluster of three) like Revenge‘s Ashley Madekwe did here. Not only will you get noticed on line at the bar for that second glass of champagne, but you’ll totally shine in all your Instagram pics!
A chic donut bun like Sarah Hyland’s is the perfect day-to-night hairstyle. It allows you to show off a pair of major earrings and it keeps the focus on your makeup. Plus, the best part about this ‘do is it doesn’t have to be perfect—slightly messy is how the cool girls wear it.
