An easy way to achieve a new you is by creating a new look. You may see celebs with hot hairstyles and think, "I would love to try that." Want to be daring? Sexy? Edgy? Classic? Chic? Step outside your hair comfort zone and just dive in and do it. Visit your salon and watch sexiness and confidence emerge.
"Black Swan"- inspired Chignon
The movie that in early 2011 has everyone talking also has the haute hairstyle -- Natalie Portman's chignon in "Black Swan." The chignon is a classic hairstyle that is made current by allowing it to look less fussy and sculpted than in years past. It's a simple style that takes little effort to appear fabulous. Gather hair at the center of your head or nape of your neck and fold hair over in varying directions. Secure it with hair pins. For added dazzle, gather your hair at the nape of your neck and secure your hair on either side of the head. Finish with your favorite sparkly headband or hair clip.
Rhianna's Red-Hot Tresses
This haute hairstyle is not for the faint of heart. Songstress Rhianna is known as a trendsetter when it comes to her hair, changing every few months, and while that may not be ideal for the average woman, there is still a way for you to try her fire engine red tresses and protect the state of your hair in the process. Coloring can put stress on your hair, especially if your chosen color is an extreme one, such as bright red. The best way is with a color rinse, which washes out of your hair. A rinse lets you sport the color for a few weeks and not have to worry about damaging your own tresses. Channel your inner pop star.
When you want to let go and cut your hairstyling time in half, the pixie, first popularized in the 1960s, is a super short, sexy and sassy style that takes the highest level of confidence and attitude to pull off. Seen on supermodels and Hollywood starlets, the pixie cut is a way to create a new you with a few snips of the scissors. For appropriate pixie shape and length, it's best to consult a stylist who can match your face shape and bone structure with a pixie style that will have heads turning.
Beautiful, Bountiful Curls
Sure, straight hair is sleek, sophisticated and classy, but when you want to put a little sexiness and romance in your tresses there is no better way than to add curls...the bigger the better. Big, bouncy curls add an element of playfulness and sex appeal. Curls should be soft and longing to be touched. There are several ways to achieve giant curls, such as barrel curling irons, hot rollers, roller sets and pin curls.
