Or should we say “the unusual version of the usual side swoop”? Naomi’s hair is slightly teased at front and on the crown, pulled back, combed with paddle brush and fixed with lots of hairspray, so there is no straight parting line on the side. Pay attention on the bangs, as they are set to the place with hairspray instead of bobby pin. Sections from the left side are twisted at the nape to create a form resembling waterfall braid, but no braiding was applied. This section is pinned at the right side of her nape and it continues into lovely, blond curls resting at her right shoulder. Mind blowing creation indeed!

Well, hello wild side of 80’s again! Amber Heard arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of 3 Days to Kill’ movie wearing this adorable hairstyle! Her hair was blow dried with diffuser to create these loose, messy waves. When repeating this hair style, moderate frizz is just fine, so very small amount of volumizing hair creme is enough for the texture of natural straight hair. After deep side parting, apply hair gel to the side and on the crown (max 2-3” from your roots), roll the side section towards back and secure it with pins. Roll the ends of the back section inwards and pin them at the nape. Finger comb the crown section to lift your hair from the roots. Hairspray is optional, but this smile is a must!

Care for a radical change of your bob hairstyle?  Opt for something really edgy that turns jet black hair into va va voom. Permanent option requires bleaching prior to applying turquoise color while test and temporary option require  color spray. Yes, officially Kylie Jenner is wearing dip dye, but avoid straight line when applying bleach and final result will be smashing. To achieve more natural zigzag, you can tease your hair 3-4″ to the roots before applying bleach.

Kristen Stewart already prepared us for her wild-orange-with-dark-roots hair color at Met Ball earlier this year, but we did not expect she will push the limits with cutting her hair short. She appeared at Chanel Show at Paris Fashion Week 2014 wearing her short, layered, wavy bob deep side parted and messy. With reference to the occasion – this was very brave, Kristen! All together with the wardrobe and attitude, we totally had ‘Madonna 80’s’ déjà vu.

Purple? Well, after all we are talking about Nicole Richie’s ability to impress with edgy fashion statement. Careful with purple hue if you are not ready to draw all that attention as you walk. It may appear that Nicole is wearing disheveled updo, but this is everything but that. There are six wide, wavy sections starting at sides and front, which are carefully set in place and fixed with hairspray, before they were finally collected at the back and tied into this low bun. Tip – you can try temporary hair color to see how purple works for you.

Isn’t this adorable? Amber’s glamoulicious knots are tied to create faux mohawk at the back of her head. At the front they are merging with a-la-pompadour pouf and forming this very much chic, disheveled updo. At first glance this hairstyle may appear complicated to repeat, but the base is only volumizing mousse and round brush blow drying. It’s up to you if you wish to slightly tease the front section or not before you tie it in a pony tail. Collect rest of your hair and make the second pony tail. Divide pony tails in two sections, coil each of these four new sections into loose buns and secure them with pins. Pull the front section little bit away from the elastic and finish-set it with your fingers. Mist your ‘do with hairspray.

This lady is giving a whole new meaning to reinventing oneself. She obviously looks different every time she arrives at some event, but her “different” seems like the one done along the way and without pressure. It appears like this is structural part of her creative and fashionably daring nature expressed in style. We are sure you’ve seen a quiff many times before. Did you ever see it combined with shaved bangs? Neither did we, but this looks fantastic on Lupita Nyong’o! This is edgy beyond every edge!

Feel like bringing some punk to your style, but that doesn’t mean you will shave a bit of your hair? Hail to Jenny and her very glamorous, sunkissed faux solution from Met Ball 2013. We assure you that no hair was harmed in the making of this hairstyle. Replace the trimmer with generous amount of hair gel on both side sections, make them really sleek and shiny, comb them towards the back of your head and secure with bobby pins just bellow the crown. Depending on the length of your hair, you might need to twist these sections inwards before securing. Curl the rest of your hair with large barrel curling iron, tease it a bit at the roots to amplify the volume, set the waves to the side, apply loads of hairspray and there you go – punk glam look without hair sacrifice!

Short shag hairstyles tend to look a bit sharp, but with the right touch of waves the whole look modifies. Rihanna’s hair is cut asymmetrically into a short shag, giving this look a bit of an edge. What most certainly effeminates her look is the middle parting, side-swept long bangs and the firm, well defined curls.

Wow! We’ve seen glamorous side-swept hairstyles in so many shapes and forms before, but this is something exceptional. Way to go, Rihanna! Fusion of luscious, bouncing, side-swept curls and punk rebel shaved section is definitely a hairstyle that should be titled with “Good girl gone bad”. Best texture result for this style is achieved with ombre, generous amount of shining serum, taking bigger sections when curling your mane (large barrel!) and minimum bellow shoulder length hair.

Annabelle Wallis shows us how to throw up our hair perfunctorily, especially if it’s meager in length. The casualness of her updo paired with an amazing maquillage makes the look work perfectly.  Simply gather your hair up into a high ponytail then secure with elastic. At the last loop, tuck in the hair without completely pulling it out so that the elastic is holding it. Pick out a few strands for a slightly disheveled chic finish.

Veronica Roth mussed up the top of her pixie at the premiere of ‘Divergent’ at the Regency Bruin Theatre in L.A. The borrowed-from-the-guys hairstyle is curled up just a bit for good texture and height. Keep the sides tame. The contrast will slenderize a wide jaw line.

Punk out a demure hairstyle by adding a section of barely-noticeable plait right in the middle just like the models at the 2014 Tibi Fall runway. Create a thin section at the center right after blow drying hair stick straight. Dutch braid that section tight (like, headache-inducing kind of tight). You can stop right below the crown or you can go all the way down to the nape.

First thought: How much does that weigh?! In all its massiveness, we have to admit that the elegant factor of the hairstyle is still very much evident just like the 2014 fall collection of Carolina Herrera. The hair is neatly slicked back into an intricate high bun, with a wide section (5”) wrapped around it. If you lack the length in order to achieve this hairstyle, use extensions or a faux bun. Fake it ’till you make it!
