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. White dress plus diamonds-are-the-girl’s-best-friends make no surprise on the choice of make up that Suki opted for. Would anything else but Marylin Monroe inspired ivory eyeshadow, black eyeliner and red lipstick complete this look better?

Topknot is evergreen among updos and it will never fail you down for all those special occasions, starting from evening events and all the way up to wedding. Perhaps it is a little bit demanding for coarse or curly type of hair, but it is worth of effort. Monica was wearing this updo at BET awards in 2012.

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!

Talkin’ about elegance personified! Without mistake, when it comes to those very special events which require some extra effort for your hairstyle, top knot is your BFF. Jessica Pare’s jet black hair is tied in super sleek pony, weaved into braid which is then coiled into bun. In case your hair length can not meet the standards of this volume, you can always opt for faux bun and clip it on the crown.

If we should judge according to runways, is all about side parting of your hair, making it sleek on the top and leaving rest of your hair to fall in XL curls, hint of waves or even super sleek style. One more news is that no one yet decided to put ombre on the shelf until next retro round. Amber Heard wore this classy side swept hairstyle on 2013 Oscars. Key is to sweep your hair from one side and let it lie on the opposite shoulder like a genuine star from the golden age of Hollywood.

Blake Lively chooses her red carpet styles without ever making a mistake. Her chignon at Cannes Film Festival 2014 is total glam overdose. You could apply less effort and hair products if your hair is day old when repeating this style. Part your hair on the side, tease it a little on the crown and tie it in a low pony tail. Next you should tease your pony tail into voluminous pouf and smooth the surface with paddle brush. Secure the sections of your pony tail two inches from the elastic to conceal it. Create the body of your bun by securing the tips of your hair at the nape and curling them towards elastic. Apply hairspray in generous amount when you finish.

It is a bit contradictory to see how messy ‘do can give such an elegant statement, as in case of Keira Knightley’s look for ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ movie premiere. After creating central parting, her hair was curled with curling iron and collected into this gorgeous, disheveled chignon. On a side note, you are very lucky if you don’t have to envy her on that delicate, long neck and her amazing, natural eyebrows. If you do, you can always reach out for navy smokey make up to complete the perfection.

If this was her backstage mood captured, then you can imagine how Gwen Stefani rocked on stage as a surprise guest at Hollywood Bowl this year. Gwen has two hairstyle passions: vintage and punk, and she is not rarely seen opting for both at the same time.

This time her hairstyle is channeling Marlene Dietrich, while her outfit gets all the punk part for it self.

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.

Kim Kardashian’s usual drop-dead-gorgeous, thick, long and healthy mane in all glam & polished edition at Met Ball 2014. We love her idea of loose, soft waves created with blow drying. They give such appealing, neat and vivid texture to long hair. Side parting should get a big ‘yes’ from every long haired lady in need for instant elegance, but luscious tresses as these require some additional attention. Give a shot to argan oil based hair masks for a while.

This is probably the loveliest dark blond hair color ever! Congratulations to her hair dresser! We also love the curve of her side swept, blunt bangs, which is giving this ‘do a glam note of classic. Taylor Swift’s asymmetrical bob is only slightly waved, to avoid stiffness and to make her hairstyle more charming and sweet. On a side note, this lady really knows how to wear her red lipstick.

Sleek hair is definitely 2014 synonym for elegance. Bring the frizz to zero with serum (and straightening iron if absolutely necessary) and you have a good starting point to repeat this look. Apply hair cream for additional sleekness, create middle parting and tie your hair in a low pony tail. Alessandra is wearing very simple chignon which you can repeat by coiling your hair around elastic and securing it with bobby pin. Make sure you tucked well every loose wisp that could derange this utterly neat look.

Base of Emmy Rossum’s hairstyle is good, old milkmaid braid. Chic statement of this style is hair crimping before creating the big braid over the crown. Hair crimping is life savior if your hair is thin and lacking volume. Depending on your preference, when repeating this style you can opt for both middle and center parting of your bangs. Leave a few wisps loose on the sides to soften the look.

This time her multicolored, blond hair has that perfect warm hue that makes her skin glowing and radiant. We love the volume in this overall cute updo. It has been a while since we last saw side, choppy bangs combined with updo on the red carpet and this looks like Beth Behrs did a very good job with her choice of hairstyle.

It is practically impossible to remain indifferent while looking at hair of as impressive length as this one. Naomi Campbell arrived at CFDA Fashion Awards 2014 wearing her extra long, dark brown mane side parted and loose. You’re craving for these gorgeous mermaid waves, dontcha? Okay then, you need cone shaped curling iron to begin with. The larger barrel the better! Wider side of the barrel should be closer to the hair roots while you are swirling hair sections spirally around it. Prepare your hair with some heat protection serum and a small amount of hair cream applied at the ends. Start with curling at nape sections, continue towards back of your head, then curl sections on both sides and finish with crown and front sections. When you are done with curling and your hair is cooled, comb it softly with paddle brush and voila!

We love her wearing any type of bangs, as this is making her glowing cat eyes even more prominent, but we have absolutely nothing against her hair being swept away from the face. On the contrary. Olivia Wilde’s long, brown hair is slightly teased at the front and on the crown for creating a soft pouf. Officially, this is not a ponytail, as her tresses are divided into sections and secured with bobby pins at the back of her head. Loose ends are treated with large barrel curling iron, resulting with bounty of cascading curls. Final touch – a mist of hairspray for lasting perfection.

Runway trend for 2014 is super sleek hair in all shapes and forms: updo, ponytail, half up and even loose. Model Natasha Poly was wearing this hairstyle at Cannes Film Festival 2014. Her hair is parted in the middle and graced with generous amount of hair creme before thorough combing towards sides and back. Her hair was then tied in a low pony tail, which was folded at 3” length and pinned at the back. Loose ends of her ponytail were then sectioned, rolled and pinned above the 3” section to form this elegant chignon. A killer combo with smokey eyes make up!

Jessica’s stunning look at Met Ball 2014 is speaking volumes about vintage 40’s being unmistakable choice if you want boost of glamour in your hair. Before rolling up to the nape into queue curl, it is of utter importance to give some body to your hair by blow drying it with round brush ( tease a bit on the crown if your hair is thin!). Here we have deep side parting and some serious action with curling iron, so do use heat protection serum. Divide your hair into sections, roll them up one by one, and secure with bobby pins at the nape. Make sure you applied generous amount of hairspray. You probably want your hair in place throughout the entire ball, instead of turning into pumpkin after midnight. Offtopic: thumbs up for those earrings!
