Seems like even casual walk on the streets of LA means special attention on the hairstyle for  Christina Milian. Hair crimping can instantly turn your otherwise boring, long hair into abundance of coolness. Takes no longer than 15 minutes and nothing more than crimping iron to create these gorgeous ridges, promise. Attention: don’t apply oily hair products prior to heat treatment. You need all the frizz you can get and you don’t want to damage your hair. Securing your bangs on the back with elastic or bobby pins is optional.

It is true that not all of us are blessed like Ariana with huge, voluminous, long, thick mane cascading over our back, but this should not stop you from repeating this look if you are crushing on it. Faux pony tail extension will do perfectly fine, as you can conceal the clip with your own hair. Faking is more than justified for this level of glam. Collect your hair and tie it in a high pony tail on the crown. If you are using extension, clip it at this stage. Take a section of your hair, wrap it around elastic (or clip) and secure it with bobby pin. Creating loose curls with curling iron is optional.

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.

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.
