The last decade has been all about long cascading hair, but surprisingly, we've been seeing a lot of top celebs rocking sleek and face-framing updos to finishing off their over-the-top outfits. This shift might be because everyone in fashion, beauty, and show business have been embracing a younger and fresher approach to glam. Here are our top 6 magnificent muses for this year's hair trend:
Sandra kept things soft and sophisticated by rocking a super loose and relaxed updo to complement her gown's exaggerated shoulder detail. Keeping some volume on top of her head totally made her beautiful face stand out more without distracting from the focal point of her whole outfit! Pro tip: Give yourself a blowout with our Blowout Boutique before putting your hair up to achieve maximum lift and volume.
To make her structured gown look more youthful, Saorise kept her fringe wispy and airy. She also opted for a more tousled hairstyle to perfectly contrast the super clean and crisp look to her gown and accessories. This trick is perfect if you want to make your look effortless instantly!
As always, Zazie Beatz rocked her signature curls to complete her red carpet look! She sported a super easy half-up look to give her hair an instant lift and height while also showcasing her intricate necklace. This hairstyle is a simple trick that you can do if you want to give your hair some dimension without committing to a full-on updo.
Brie totally looked like a modern-day hero with her couture cape and slicked back blonde locks! Sometimes, less is more, and she proved this point right. You don't need a ton of accessories to look glamorous. Try out the Megastar Straightener to give you sleek and shiny tresses in minutes.
A total polar opposite from the last look in the best way possible, the stunning Janelle Monae kept the focus on her outfit and kept her hair and makeup clean and simple. She added some sleek side-swept bangs to frame her face perfectly. But let's be honest, she can rock anything flawlessly!
Don't you just wish that you were as cool as her when you were 18?! Sometimes, formal events could be tricky for teens. Not for Billie! She sported thick face-framing layers and, of course, her neon hair to complete her statement tweet jacket. She added soft waves to her fringe to soften the look without being too overly girly.
