While we first spotted the 1940s-esque rolls and twisted hairstyles on the s/s ’13 runways at the likes of Jenny Packham and Jason Wu, when we scrolled through recent red carpet celebrity snaps, we couldn’t help but notice the trend pop up again and again. Whether it’s intricately twisted à la Diane Kruger, or a twirled updo like Keira Knightley, this style isn’t going anywhere soon. Click through for some serious hair-spiration …
Back in April we doffed our hats to Anne Hathaway for her very admirable dedication to her art when she chopped off all (and we mean ALL) of her luscious brown hair for the role of Fantine in new movie ‘Les Miserables.’ We’re talking shaved head short.
Now the style has grown into a longer crop and oh, how we do love a pixie. Michelle Williams, Carey Mulligan, Mia Farrow and Emma Watson have all demonstrated exactly how to rock a gamine ‘do. And there’s no denying that Anne is looking equally fabulous with her with her shorter-than-short style, which frames her gorgeous features just so.
Sarah Hyland totally rocks a ballet bun. The doe-eyed 22-year-old actress was all sweetness on the red carpet this weekend.
The brilliant brunette looked downright lovely a in a ballerina-pink bow-bedecked Erin Fetherston dress with glistening satin Giuseppe Zanotti heels. To take the graceful style full circle, the actress finished the look off with an classic cat-eye, sheer lipgloss, and an effortlessly-chic ballet bun:
To get the perfect ballerina bun every single time, the trick is to use a hair donut. The squishy mesh rings look totally goofy and, well, kind of mind-boggling upon first glance, but hear us out, they’re heaven-sent for maintaining hold and shape.
Once you’ve obtained your time-saving bun-making tool—follow these simple steps to get a gorgeous bun in less than 2 minutes.
Step 1: Pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with a small elastic.
Step 2: Using a donut that matches your hair color, slip your ponytail through the hole and hold in place.
Step 3: Take your ponytail and disperse hair evenly around the donut. Secure strands to the donut with U-shaped bobby pins to create a basic bun silhouette.
Step 4: Wrap leftover strands around the base of the bun, pinning in place as necessary—the more strands you leave undone, the edgier and messier your bun will look.
Step 5: Spritz the style down with your everyday hairspray, and you’ve got a prim and polished look just like that.
