Actress Nina Dobrev looked stunning at the VMA 2014 red carpet wearing her hair tied in this chic high ponytail. To start up with creating this look, your hair needs a fresh blow dry.

Take 1″ section of your hair, wrap it around elastic to conceal it and secure with bobby pin. This hairstyle looks even more stunning if your hair color is variegated like ombre or highlights.

Well hello 90’s and teasing the side swept bangs! Kate Upton sure channels the best out of super model era. We are impressed with her blond mane at VMA 2014 very much and if you feel the same, it’s time for action:

  1. Prefer hair creme over mousse to keep your ‘do at place. Apply small amount between your palms and rub it on dump hair.
  2. Blow dry your hair with large, round brush.
  3. Create side parting.
  4. Tease your bangs and one more 2” section behind them. Pull them back and smooth with paddle brush. Remember that zero trace of teasing is allowed, so make it invisible.
  5. Curl your bangs and few more thin side sections with large barrel curling iron.
  6. Set your hair to the place with your fingers. Avoid comb and brush at this stage.
  7. Mist with hairspray.

A hairstyle that will make you want to cut your bangs into this choppy cuteness! Texture of January Jones’ hair is accomplished with mousse and diffuser blow drying. Practically, you don’t need too many waves in your hair, but only to make it look a little bit like out of bed. Divide your hair in two sections at the back, start rolling on the sides, and pin the sections when you reach your nape. We are still in dilemma if red lipstick is optional for this style.

What a lovely statement of elegance! Sarah Hyland looked stunning at Emmy Awards 2014 wearing her hair in this adorable ‘do. Her topknot starts with slightly messy and coarse high pony tail, which is logical option, as her medium length, layered haircut can hardly support creating sleek and neat bun.

The usual side swoop spiced with vintage wavy bangs and curls proven over and over again as a killer combo to glam up your hair. It is very much worth of consideration to be paired with wedding dress, other than being perfect for those very special evenings.

Would anything else but Marylin Monroe inspired ivory eyeshadow, black eyeliner and red lipstick complete this look better?
