15 Celebrity-Inspired Winter Hairstyles You Can Actually Recreate
 

They’ve got it all. A fabulous wardrobe, exquisite makeup and absolutely stunning hair that’s styled so perfectly it leaves you wondering if that could actually be their real hair! Can any one person can truly be blessed with ALL that gorgeous hair!? (Ahem, a few hair extensions never hurt!) Celebrities have been wowing us since the beginning of time and really get our hair envy kicked into high gear. But fear not! Plenty of these styles are actually really simple to create and I’m about to break down 15 of them for you so you too can make others swoon over your winter hairstyles!

Eliza Doolittle’s Untamed Mane

Quick, easy and perfectly undone looking. Sound like an oxymoron? Absolutely not!

Eliza Doolittle Winter Whites Gala in Aid of Centrepoint at Kensington Palace in London on November 26, 2013

How To Style:

  1. When your hair is dry, use a 1-inch curling iron or wand to curl small sections of your hair.
  2. Once all sections have been curled, run your fingers through your hair if you desire a more natural look.
  3. Spray everything with a light finishing spray.

Recommended Products:

I love Moroccan Oil Medium Hairspray to finish off this style. It’s light and won’t get too sticky or crunchy.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will work best on those with long hair, as the curls may look too “Shirley Temple-ish” on someone with short hair. If you have a rounder face, this long look will slim down your face and make it appear narrower.

Tip:

If you were lucky enough to be blessed with curly locks, don’t be afraid to get this style by playing up your natural texture! Add some Sculpting Foam by Paul Mitchell in your hair when it’s still damp, then use your diffuser to accentuate the curls.

Taylor Swift’s Dolled Up ‘Do

Side ponytails, side chignons, side braids…you name is and if it’s to the side of one’s head, it’s all the rage this season!

Taylor Swift Winter Whites Gala in Aid of Centrepoint at Kensington Palace in London on November 26, 2013

How To Style:

  1. Prep your hair with a working spray, or even work through a touch of a working pomade. Hair should be “gritty”, but not too sticky and still fairly easy to run your fingers through.
  2. Begin by parting your hair to the desired side, then separate it into three sections. Section one is the smallest (about two inches wide) and will be the section right behind the ear of the side of the head which your hair will rest on. Section two will be the middle section, and will start after section one and end in the middle back of your head. Section three is the rest of your hair (all the hair from the opposite side of your head on which your hair will rest).
  3. Take section one, and using a medium-sized curling iron, curl the whole section so that the curl is going towards your face.
  4. Apply more working pomade to your hair and using a brush or your fingers, push your hair to where you want it to rest. Gather the hair that was curled and pin it up using bobby pins so that it looks a bit like a side bun.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on Sections 2 and 3.
  6. Spray everything with a strong hold hairspray.

Recommended Products:

I love Kevin Murphy’s Super Goo for a working pomade. The texture is a bit weird at first, but play around with it a bit and I’m sure you will learn to love it! It leaves your hair with a sheen that seems to have a touch of sparkle.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style would work best for those with shorter hair that’s of a finer texture. It will be hard to create on long hair, because the hair that gets pinned up on the side will look bulky and unbalanced. Harsh facial features will be softened by this look.

Tips:

Keep in mind that the lovely Taylor Swift most definitely has someone of the highest caliber doing her hair. That being said, don’t get frustrated if it takes a little practice to get a style like this just right. Be patient!

Abbie Cornish’s Swoon-Worthy Side Sweep

As I mentioned before, do any style, pull it to the side, and it’s a trendy masterpiece that’s sure to please!

Abbie Cornish Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. On dry hair, parted as you desire, use your 1¼-inch curling iron and curl each section so the curls are going toward the side you ultimately want your hair to be on.
  2. Pull all of your hair to one side and spray everything with a light finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is awesome on medium, fine or thick hair! Any face shape would be complemented by this style. If you like the look in the pic, but don’t quite have the length, no prob! Try some clip in extensions for instantly long locks.

Recommended Products:

Try Classic Spray by Bumble and Bumble to finish off your style.

Abigail Breslin’s Partial “Poof”

Abigail rocks this take on big, sexy hair. A few simple steps and you’ll have this one mastered!

Abigail Breslin Variety's 7th Annual Power of Youth Event Presented by Hasbro and GenerationOn - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. Once your hair is dry, use a 1¼-inch curling iron to curl your hair.
  2. Using a backcombing brush, gently backcomb the crown section of your hair until the desired amount of volume is achieved.
  3. After you have left out the desired amount of pieces around your face, gently secure the top section of your hair back using bobby pins.
  4. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is great for those with fine hair who want to add a little oomph to their look. However, it also works great for those with naturally thick hair…it’s a great way to pull some of your hair out of your face but still have plenty of volume and body. This style is great for any face shape!

Recommended Products:

Try spraying a little dry shampoo at the roots of your crown area for extra fullness when your backcomb! I love Fresh Hair by Kevin Murphy.

Adriana Lima’s Middle Part Perfection

Miss Lima certainly knows how to rock that middle part and make it look FAB-u- lous!

Abigail Breslin Variety's 7th Annual Power of Youth Event Presented by Hasbro and GenerationOn - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. On dry hair that is parted down the middle, use your 1¼-inch curling iron and curl each section.
  2. Once you have curled everything, run your fingers through your hair to give a more natural look.
  3. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style literally works for any face shape. It will soften harsh features, really highlight your eyes and frame your face. Any length hair will work well for this look, but if it’s long hair you desire, get some clip in extensions for added length.

Recommended Products:

If your hair doesn’t hold curl too well, try putting some mousse in your hair when it’s wet, before you blow dry. It will give you a bit of body as well as offer some hold when you curl your hair. I like Body Builder by Kevin Murphy.

Amy Poehler’s Soft Beachy Sweetness

This natural looking soft wave is absolute perfection. It’s a dual-purpose style — great for daytime AND after work fanciness!

Amy Poehler 41st Annual AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Mel Brooks - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. On dry hair, use your medium curling wand and wrap each section.
  2. Once you have curled everything, run your fingers through your hair to give a more natural look. Or, you can use a boar bristle brush to make the curls look more natural.
  3. If you have long hair and want the look shown above, grab a ponytail holder and create a low, messy bun in the back of your head.
  4. Spray everything with a light hold hairspray.

Best Face Shape And Hair Type:

This look could work well for someone with short hair AND long hair. Thick hair that’s a bit coarser would probably hold this curl a bit better, however with the correct products, fine hair could work as well. This style will complement most any face shape.

Recommended Products:

Try some Thickening Spray by Bumble and Bumble right at your roots before you blow dry. It will give you some body and volume and even a small amount of hold for when you curl.

Tips:

Be cautious if you are using a curling wand for the first time. They get incredibly hot, so be careful not to burn your fingertips!

Alicia Keys’ Slicked Back Style

Not only is she a fantastic singer, but Miss Keys has taken plenty of hairstyle risks. Most of which she looks stunning in, such as this one!

Alicia Keys Keep A Child Alive's Black Ball London 2011 - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. Straighten your hair using a flat iron.
  2. Apply a small dab of gel to your fingertips and gently apply the gel around your hairline.
  3. Using a fine tooth comb, comb the gel into your hair, stopping about 2 or 3 inches back from your hairline.
  4. If more volume is desired, use a back combing brush at the crown of your head to create more height.
  5. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will elongate a small or round face. It will really highlight your features and draw attention to your eyes and eyebrows. Longer hair with not many short layers would be ideal for this style.

Recommended Products:

I love Bumble and Bumble’s Gellac. It’s strong enough to keep this style looking good all night, but it won’t get flaky or too crunchy. Use it sparingly though! A little goes a long way.

Anna Kendrick’s Brilliant Bun

Anna’s hair looks absolutely stunning pulled back into this effortless looking style.

Anna Kendrick 2013 Tony Awards - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. When your hair is dry, use a back combing brush to give body to the crown area of your head.
  2. Leave out the first three inches of hair around your hairline.
  3. Secure the hair that is not around the hairline back into a messy bun in the back middle of your head.
  4. Leave out any hair that you wish to have as bangs. Then, pull back the sections of hair around your hairline that you have left out and pin them so they are joined to the bun. Gently back comb each section at the roots before you pull it back.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will be easiest to replicate if you have long, thick hair. Any face shape would be complemented by this style since the pieces left out around the face will soften your features and frame your face nicely.

Recommended Products:

If you don’t own a back combing brush, you definitely need to add one to your collection of hair tools. Try the Little Wonder Brush by Spornette….it’s my absolute favorite!

Angelina Jolie’s Understated Masterpiece

Angelina certainly pulls off this understated yet stunning bun.

How To Style:

  1. Secure dry, smoothed hair back into a tight ponytail in the back of your head.
  2. Separate the ponytail into four sections. At random, pin the four sections so that they cover the ponytail holder and mesh well with each other.
  3. Spray everything with a strong hold finishing spray.Best Face Shape and Hair Type: This style is perfect for those with hair that doesn’t have much layering and is a bit on the longer side. It will complement a narrow or slender face.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is perfect for those with hair that doesn’t have much layering and is a bit on the longer side. It will complement a narrow or slender face.

Recommended Products:

A strong product to get your hair smoothed back nicely will be really helpful. Try Super Goo by Kevin Murphy. Use it sparingly! A little bit goes a long way.

Tip:

Try using a boar bristle brush to smooth your hair when you are putting it into a ponytail.

Cameron Diaz’s Breathtaking Blowout

Always striking, Cameron Diaz rocks this classic, round brushed style and makes it her own.

How To Style:

  1. After washing and shampooing your hair, roughly blow dry it until it is about 80% dry.
  2. Using a medium-sized boar bristle brush, blow dry your hair in small sections until it is smooth and completely dry. Around your face, be sure to blowdry your hair away from your face if you like the way Cameron’s hair is styled in the photo.
  3. If more volume is desired, use a back combing brush to create height at the crown of your head.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is a great way for those with short and fine hair to get volume and body. It will make a round face appear slimmer.

Recommended Products:

I love Sam Villa’s boar bristle round brushes. They are well made and come in a variety of sizes!

Claire Danes’ Pulled Back Perfection

Claire makes a messy bun look absolutely flawless! This look is incredibly easy to create and a perfect option for a casual day or a fancy night out.

How To Style:

  1. When your hair is dry, create some volume at your roots by using a back combing brush.
  2. Loosely secure your hair back using a ponytail holder. Use a rat tail comb to gently loosen the hair in the ponytail if a looser look is desired.
  3. Twist your ponytail up and secure it using bobby pins. If you prefer a more uniform look, try using a sock and creating a sock bun.
  4. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will be easiest to replicate on those with long hair that’s thick and doesn’t have a lot of layers. This look will elongate your neck and highlight your features, so most face shapes will work perfectly with it!

Diana Agron’s Twisted Delight

This beauty has perfectly showcased how simple and chic your hair can be even when it’s pulled back and out of your face.

Twisted Style Persol Magnificent Obsessions: 30 Stories of Craftmanship in Film Event Honoring Arianne Phillips, Patricia Clarkson and Todd Haynes - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. Separate a section of hair that’s about two inches in width right around your hairline.
  2. Secure the rest of your hair back in a low, messy bun using a ponytail holder.
  3. Take the section that’s been left out and twist it so that the twist is going away from your face.
  4. Pin the twist into the messy bun using bobby pins. Intertwine any remaining hair that’s left out at the end of the twist with the messy bun.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is perfect for any length of hair, and it’s a great way to keep fine, short hair out of your face! This style accentuates your face shape and puts all the focus on your features, so anyone can rock it!

Recommended Products:

If you have fine hair and want to try this style, you may want to prep your hair with a little bit of dry shampoo before you style. I love Fresh Hair by Kevin Murphy. Pick up sections of hair and spray a bit at your roots. This will give your hair a little “grit” so that it isn’t so slippery and soft and will help your look stay for hours!

Blake Lively’s Foxy Fishtail

There are few things I love more than when you can incorporate a braid into your style. It’s trendy yet super classy and is guaranteed to have you turning heads!

Foxy Fishtail

How To Style:

  1. Secure dry hair back into a ponytail in the back of the head.
  2. Create a fishtail braid. This is done by separating the ponytail into two sections, and grabbing small pieces of hair from the outside of each section (alternate side to side) and bringing them to meet in the middle. Repeat until you have reached the bottom of the ponytail.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style will work best on those with long hair that is thick. This style will really put the focus on your face shape and features, so if you have sharper features, you may want to leave out a swoopy side bang or some pieces around your face.

Recommended Products:

Before you begin your fishtail braid, use some smoothing serum on the hair in the ponytail to give it shine and make those little flyaways stay put! I like Super Skinny Serum by Paul Mitchell.

Beyonce’s Chic Side Sweep

Beyonce knows no limits when it comes to what hairstyles she can pull off. She looks especially lovely with this low side pony.

Beyonce Side Sweep 2011 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

How To Style:

  1. Dry your hair using a medium-sized boar bristle round brush to get body and volume at your roots.
  2. When hair is dry, part it on the desired side and secure your hair into a ponytail behind your ear.
  3. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and carefully wrap it around the ponytail holder to disguise it. Pin the end of the piece of hair into the ponytail using a bobby pin.
  4. If desired, curl the hair in the ponytail using a medium-sized curling iron.
  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is perfect if you have a longer forehead and want to disguise it. Also, it will soften any harsh or uneven features. This style will work best for those with longer hair.

Recommended Products:

To make your hair look extra soft and shiny for this style, apply some shine spray or serum to your locks before you secure it back in a side pony. I love Shimmer Shine by Kevin Murphy. Spray some on your hands and then apply it to your hair from mid shaft to the ends.

Selena Gomez’s Rocker Chic Pony

I love a good ponytail! Selena looks extra glam with a big, chunky ponytail that’s perfect for any occasion!

Rocker Chic Pony Selena Gomez

How To Style:

  1. Begin with dry hair. Back comb the top section of you hair from your hairline to the crown using a back combing brush.
  2. When the desired height is achieved, secure your hair back into a ponytail in the back middle of your head.
  3. Take a small section of the ponytail and wrap it around the ponytail holder to disguise it. Pin the end of the section into the ponytail using a bobby pin.
  4. Spray everything with a strong hold hairspray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This style is absolute perfection on someone with long, thick hair. Short or medium hair could work as well, however your ponytail won’t be as thick. If you have a small and compact face, this will elongate it!

Recommended Products:

Try using some Expanda Dust by Unite when you back comb. Sprinkle a small amount at your roots before you back comb. The volume you can get will be incredible!

Just because you don’t have a glam squad to do your hair like these celebs do doesn’t mean that you can’t have absolutely stunning hair for winter too! Don’t be afraid to step out of the box and try something new this season. Even if it’s something as simple as a braid or a lovely bun, these winter hairstyles can be an outlet for showcasing how unique your own personal style is!
