Rachel McAdams’s Voluminous Style
WHERE The premiere of Morning Glory in New York City
WHY WE LOVE IT Sebastian hairstylist Thomas Dunkin turned to a pile of Velcro rollers to give Rachel McAdams this lushly textured style. After setting the entire head in a “brickwork” pattern—that is staggered horizontal rows of rollers—Dunkin blasted them with the hot air of a diffuser and allowed the hair to fully cool. He then parted the hair deep and on one side to exaggerate the shape, and finished with a mist of hairspray.
WHERE The 2010 Britannia Awards in Los Angeles
WHY WE LOVE IT Dakota Fanning’s pale blond strands are usually silky straight and totally polished, so naturally this slightly less fussy look caught our attention. The curled-under ends keep the allover piecey-ness from feeling too messy.
WHERE The Megamind premiere in New York City
WHY WE LOVE IT Liz Lemon favors prim and professional waves. Tina Fey, on the other hand, turns out a collarbone-length cut that’s shiny, sexy and red carpet ready.
Lake Bell’s New Bangs!
WHERE The Decades Denim launch party in Los Angeles
WHY WE LOVE IT Lake Bell is the latest star to jump on the bang wagon! Her version is extra-long, gorgeously thick, and adds a stark contrast to her voluminous waves.
WHERE The UNESCO Gala 2010 in Dusseldorf, Germany
WHY WE LOVE IT Sienna Miller’s adorable bun has a touch of polish thanks to a sharp center-part. The teased-out bun looks textured and casual, not overly pert and prim.
WHERE A screening of Miral in Qatar
WHY WE LOVE IT Freida Pinto favors simple styles—and who wouldn’t if they were as blessed as her. In this more intricate look, stray pieces that have slipped out of the coif add an informal elegance to an otherwise ornate updo.
Juliette Lewis’s Long Bangs
WHERE The premiere of Due Date in Los Angeles
WHY WE LOVE IT Juliette Lewis’s easy style is everything we want in a haircut—impossibly sexy and seemingly hard to screw up. Have a similar cut? Blow dry your bangs for a touch of polish, then let your own natural texture take the lead.
