Holiday Hair Inspiration — Bobs, Ponytails, & More
Selena: At the LACMA Art + Film Gala on November 1, Selena stepped out, complementing a gorgeous silver gown with sleek, straight hair that looked simple but elegant. To mimic her amazing style, start by making a dramatic part on one side of your head. Then, straighten each layer of hair to get the glossy look that Selena mastered. Finally, bobby pin the side with less hair behind your ear to add a defining touch to your style.
Kate: At the Creativity is GREAT event in New York City on December 9, Kate debuted an amazing ponytail that is perfect for the unpredictable winter weather. To get her adorable ‘do, brush hair back and tease the underside of the top section. Next, pull hair into a high ponytail. After tying the ponytail, take a small piece from the tail and wrap it around the hair band to dress up the hairstyle. For extra flair like Kate, create loose curls at the end of the ponytail with a wide barrel curling iron.
Rihanna: Rihanna wowed everyone when she stepped out on December 11 at the first annual Diamond Ball in an amazing dress complemented by a long, sleek ponytail. To get her classy look, form a dramatic side part while straightening hair. Then, use a comb and hairspray to flatten the part and give hair a matted down look against the forehead. Finally, tie hair back in a tight low ponytail and straighten the ends again to tame any stray pieces.
Taylor: Nothing says winter like a cute bob of curls! On December 12, at the Billboard Women in Music Luncheon, Taylor traded in her usually straight hair for bouncy curls that framed her face. We loved this look on her! This hairstyle is one of the easiest to get — all you have to do is wrap sections of hair around a curling iron for 20 seconds and then release. Make sure to brush through hair at the end to mimic the soft elegance that Taylor rocked.
