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!

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.

Cheryl Cole opted for 70’s retro glamour with her hairdo at Cannes Film Festival 2014. Despite heavy teasing on the crown required for bouffant, Cheryl’s lovely sunkissed hair is all but stiff in appearance, which is the legacy of 70’s paradigm on this hairstyle. Prior to teasing horizontal sections on the crown and back of the head, her hair was well prepared with blow drying and round brush, paying special attention to the sections around her face.  Then it was collected and tied in a low pony tail, leaving middle parted bangs loose. Pony tail was then sectioned, teased, smoothened, rolled into bun and secured with bobby pins at the nape. Hairspray is of utter importance for holding this hairdo in place.

Here’s an interesting twist to a low ponytail courtesy of actress Rose McIver. Avoid an unsightly dent to your locks due to elastic by going without! This style will be a breeze for women with thin hair with natural waves.

How-to: Apply a texturizing mousse before drying hair. Tease the front and crown a little for a good lift. Divide hair into two sections – upper (thicker section) and lower. Twist the lower section loosely and secure the base with pins all around. Slick out the sides as you gather the upper section at the back; make sure that it’s close enough to the lower section. Attach the upper section to the lower part using U pins. Set the coif with hairspray.

Backcomb your way into an unmistakably lovely vintage hairstyle on your next party! Hannah Simone’s loose bouffant with side-swept bangs is truly a hairstyle winner! Gone are the days of helmet-like bouffant with a parched finish. An updated version features bounce, sheen and softness.

Second day hair works best when creating this hairstyle. Apply a texturizing mousse on top and in front that’s alcohol-free so as not to dry out your tresses. Do a good blowout (lifting from the roots) with lots of body. Tease the top portion of your hair, spritz with hairspray then blow dry. Shape the bouffant as well as the bangs.

A messy high bun is a quick and easy hairstyle to glam up your ensemble. Women with naturally curly or wavy hair will have a much easier time in doing this hair. If you don’t belong to that group, make your life easier by applying a texturizing mousse while your hair is still damp. Rough dry your hair then backcomb the crown. Gather your hair into a high ponytail and tie with elastic. Tease the ends of the pony before doing a large bun. Lift the front to create a mini bouffant using the end of a rat tail comb.
