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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Lily Cole’s face definitely looks like enlivened portrait of a lady from rococo times. This impression is even more amplified with her red hair color and wavy hair texture. It takes not more than 3 min to copy this style if your hair is naturaly wavy. Just pick your hair up all the way to the crown, wrap it into loose, messy topknot, secure with bobby pins and let a few wisps to hang from it. Straighthaired ladies, sorry. You will just have to spend some extra time with curling iron or diffuser while blow drying your hair to get these sweet waves.

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!

Well hello there 80’s! Rihanna is inexhaustible when it comes to reinventig her hairstyle and she just rocks every time. She wore this cute messy updo at the 2014 Met Ball.

Take a few sections on the front, pull them towards the crown and secure them with pins about two inches from your hairline. The whole point is to bring every section of your hair towards the crown, pin it and let the ends be loose on the crown. You might need to backcomb a few wisps very slightly to set them into place. Leave a few waves to fall loose around your face and finish with hairspray. Perfect choice for you with a round and diamond shaped face, we promise this updo will elongate it.

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.
