Actresses who are Leading the Pack in New Hairstyles
Hollywood stars are trend setters in a number of areas, and that includes hairstyles. Here are a few actresses who are leading the pack when it comes to new hairstyles, many of which you will find easy enough to try yourself.
Rachel McAdams’ Bob
Canadian actress Rachel McAdams has developed a twist on the classic bob by using a deep side part, resulting in hair that is swept just over the eyebrows and across the face. This provides a somewhat softer look that is also very versatile. For example, you could add soft waves or curls for a dressier look, or pair with a headband for times when you prefer a no-fuss style. Her bob sits just below the chin; however, bobs of all lengths are actually very popular right now, so yours could be longer or shorter.
Helena Mattson’s Low Bun
Helena Mattson of Iron Man 2 proves that a low-maintenance hairstyle such as a low bun can actually be flattering and fun. It features hair that is loosely tied into a soft bun at the nape of the neck, along with some messy bangs and loose ringlets of hair along the front and sides. This hair style is perfect for days when you can’t seem to do anything with your hair, but can also be worn on formal occasions along with drop earrings and more dramatic makeup.
Shailene Woodley’s Pixie Cut
Shailene Woodley of “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and “The Fault in our Stars” is showing why the pixie cut never goes out of style. She is also demonstrating just how versatile this hair style can be by using a side part, smoothing the hair on one side behind her ear and the other across her face. This hairstyle is also very versatile, as it also be worn with a center part or even teased slightly at the crown in order to add more volume.
Chloe Grace Moretz’s “Half Up”
Actress Chloe Grace Moretz’s “half up” hairstyle is all the rage among those with longer hair. Her latest style includes braids that are wound gently around the crown of her head, leaving the rest of her locks flowing gently over top of her shoulders. Since this is a “cool” hairstyle, it is perfect for wearing at the beach or during times when you plan to be very active. It would be ideal when topped with a headband or even with a few flowers tucked behind one ear. For a more elegant look, add a few “mermaid waves” or some tight curls in your hair in addition to your braid.
These actresses are taking what are otherwise very simple hairstyles and developing their own twist on them to make them new and exciting again. As these current trends show, you don’t have to choose a high-maintenance hairstyle in order to enjoy a look that is attractive and well suited to your lifestyle. Even classic styles can be revamped to create a style that is perfectly suited for you.
