2012 Celebrity Transformations

There were some incredible new hair looks for these celebs in 2012. Alan Coban takes a look at our favourite makeovers of the year!

1940s waves

Beauty’s fun stems from its versatility—you can wash it all off at the end of the day and try something different the next. So yes, we loved ’90s grunge last week, but now we’re craving Veronica Lake-like locks! The film noir stunner’s influence can be seen on Amanda Seyfried, Naomie Harris, and Amy Adams, all of whom have hit the red carpet sporting retro locks. Nicole Richie proves that the style works as well on short hair, and if you’re somewhere in between, let Naomi Watts serve as inspiration.

Laini Reeves, the hairstylist behind Adams’ soft waves, started with a 2-inch curling iron, creating ringlets all over the actress’ head. (If your hair doesn’t hold a wave easily, pin the curls to your scalp until they cool; this will help them set and last longer.) Once all the curls were finished Reeves gently brushed Adams’ hair with Mason Pearson’s The Handy Mixture Brush ($120), but you can get a similar result with Sonia Kashuk’s Hair Brush ($16) or Caswell-Massey’s Standard Boar & Bristle Nylon Brush ($55). “The more you brush the softer the hair will get,” Reeves says. Set with a heavy amount of hairspray, sweep your hair to one side, and head to your local speakeasy. (Who What Wear)
