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. Her luscious, blond locks are curled, parted on the side with side section tucked behind her ear. This time her hairstyle is channeling Marlene Dietrich, while her outfit gets all the punk part for it self.

Head wrap is the usual first aid for those days when you are too lazy to wash your hair, but thanx to Rhianna here we have uber chic, sparkling asseccory screaming with glamour. Tired of short hair? Tired of blow drying and curling? Tired of heat treatment? You need a wow-jaw-drop-maker for a very special event? Head wrap decorated with tons of crystals and a pair of earrings are answers to your prayers.

Side Parted Long Blond Hairstyle With Victory Roll

Side Parted Long Blond Hairstyle With Victory Roll

Summing up the total of impression and elegance, deep side parting of your long,..

Summing up the total of impression and elegance, deep side parting of your long, blond mane and deep side parting with victory roll are not comparable by any chance. Extra effort applied for the latter is negligible. Credits for coolness of this hairstyle go to the contrast of single one victory roll sassiness and looseness of remaining hair. We love the idea of avoiding additional curls and waves, which is bringing a bit of edge to this look. Try it yourself: depending on your hair texture, a day old hair could be a good idea for starting point, at least when it comes to fine, thin hair. Otherwise add some hair cream. Take the whole right side section, take your bangs, take crown section all the way to the parting line, join them all together, brush them until smooth and start rolling from the ends. Direction of rolling should be from the right side towards the crown. When you reach the roots, secure the roll with bobby pins. Tuck the opposite side hair behind your ear. Fix with hairspray.

Had she been born in different generation, she would probably be on the list of Alfred Hitchcock’s fatal, classy blondes. Kate Winslet definitely has that Hollywood golden era vibe, grace and elegance, so this vintage look is pulling the best out of her appearance, which is very important when wearing black as this is directing the whole attention to the face. Her medium length blond hair is deep side parted and her bangs are slightly curled at the ends so they could blend naturally into queue curl at the nape. A hairstyle worth considering when walking down the altar because it perfectly fits with a classic wedding dress.

First thought: How much does that weigh?! In all its massiveness, we have to admit that the elegant factor of the hairstyle is still very much evident just like the 2014 fall collection of Carolina Herrera. The hair is neatly slicked back into an intricate high bun, with a wide section (5”) wrapped around it. If you lack the length in order to achieve this hairstyle, use extensions or a faux bun. Fake it ’till you make it!

Doesn’t Julia Ormond’s loose bouffant hairstyle remind you of Jackie O’s? Curled ends and the absence of dryness makes Julia’s version ultra modern. In order to get a good height in front, you need to apply a liberal amount of volumizing mousse. Doing this will also lessen the necessary teasing needed to make your hair go boom. Make the style last by applying a medium-hold hairspray with conditioning effect.

Rita Ora modernized a vintage hairstyle by making the curls more loose and relaxed. Use a curling cream to make the curls stay before swirling sections around extra large hot rollers. Don’t shape the curls together. Finger comb them and allow them to go to different directions instead. Mist the hair with a hairspray with light hold as a finale.

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 beehive hairstyle is always a delight to see. It has a dash of eccentricity but is still unmistakably elegant. Instead of doing a centrally even beehive that will make the Coneheads swoon, Archie Panjabi opted for a slightly tilted version. Not too shabby, we say. Create a large bun under that pouf to make your beehive extra large. Tease your hair gently from the roots and use a hairspray with a super strong hold to make the coif last.

We love this ‘do! It’s very sophisticated and truly exhibits high glam except for the bobby pins. Ditch the bobby pins when you recreate this hairstyle. The pins are there to set the style after you’ve spritzed some hairspray. Do a swift blow dry over your mane to set the style further then gently remove the pins. Applying gel before working on your hair will make everything way easier. Try it!

Retrofy your bob by curling the ends just like Alanna Masterson’s! It’s very 50’s with a little bit of a modern appeal. The curls are kept bouncy and loose instead of the stark version of the bygone era.
