Ashlee Simpson : ‘Pixie’ Clad In Tow !

Ashlee Simpson showed off her new blonde haircut as she left the Ritz in NYC yesterday, where she’s been with her family after arriving in the city with Bronx earlier this week.

Her hubby Pete Wentz is working on music with his band Black Cards and her sister Jessica is working there this week. Ashlee has spoken out about supporting her sister and her man Eric Johnson, whose divorce has just been finalised.

Lindsay Lohan : Back To Her Roots !

Perhaps Lindsay Lohan wanted to wash the past few months right out of her hair.

This morning, the 24-year-old actress stepped out in Los Angeles sporting a brand new strawberry blonde hair do.

And with the star recently saying she ‘wants her career back,’ it’s maybe no surprise that she has returned to the colour which saw her become a star in films like The Parent Trap and Mean Girls.

And Lohan’s blonde hairstyle certainly hasn’t brought her much luck of late.

She was wearing her hair in the lighter shade back in July when she was sentenced to 90 days in prison for violating the terms of her probation for two DUIs.

She then completed 23 days in rehab and was released at the end of last month.

Today her red hair complemented her green studded hoodie, black leggings and black boots as she visited a court house in the Santa Monica area of Los Angeles to undergo a mandatory drug test.

Style Weekly : Two-Toned Hair Locks

From anti-aging haircare to the perfect hair cut, Hollywood divas are always in on the latest ways to have healthy, youthful-looking locks.

And now a hair color effect called ombre is steadily becoming a celebrity and city girl favorite. “Ombre” literally means gradation in French, which refers to the dark-to-light fade of color that is used in the technique. Instead of color that starts at the root, darker roots blend into a lightened mid-shaft and end.

It’s a beachier, more natural looking version of the enduring “visible root” trend.

“I think it speaks to the overall organic and sustainable trend going on right now. No one wants to spend all of their time in the salon anymore, and this look means longer time between visits because it’s so natural-looking. There’s no color line of demarcation at your roots,” says Dimitrios Tsioumas, creative color director of New York and Boston’s Mizu salons, where colorists perform the effect.

The term was taken from the fashion world, where the ombre style of diffusing color is used for fabric, and is most often seen in kimonos.

“In the hair industry, we like to translate what we see in the fashion industry into hair. We’ve seen many designers showcase the ombre effect in their collections. We’re making it more natural and softer to fit into our current lifestyles,” adds Tsioumas.


As we told you last season, starlets like Ashlee Simpson are bucking conventional hair colour for the two-toned effect. The best way to achieve this look, says veteran colourist Douglas Timleck of Salvatore Leonetti Salon in Toronto, is to use a highlighting method called balayage. Instead of the usual foils or cap, “it’s hair painting that starts from the roots or lower down the strands.”


Timleck stresses that if done in a “softer, more natural method, a lot of women can carry off this look well.” Rachel Bilson’s style, for example, shows off subtle gradations on beachy highlights.

This hairstyle “works very well for younger people with a strong sense of themselves and their fashion direction,” say Timleck. Drew Barrymore’s dark crown and peroxide-dipped tips are extremely directional.

We also adore Nicole Richie’s warm iteration, which was created by celeb-fave George Papanikolas of the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood. Papanikolas first took Richie’s hair several shades darker to a medium light brown, and then used balayage technique to add highlights, starting at her natural center part. Using bleach, he painted golden blonde v-shaped tips on the ends of her hair. Then, to graduate the color, he went through her hair in big horizontal sections, backcombing each one before applying bleach in an arrow shape to the ends of the hair.

Another essential to consider about this style is the use of complementary tones. Leighton Meester’s bleached out waves are blended perfectly into her colour. Timleck says “it’s a must.”

Papanikolas applied a similar regime for Shanae Grimes’ shoulder-length locks. First he gave her balayage highlights to add progressively lighter color to her hair, followed by a round of bleach at the tips to emphasize the contrast.

Lindsay Lohan also loves keeping her ends light and roots darker. Lilo looks super hot in this amazing hair color.

Anne Hathaway : Chic ‘Wig-Out’ In One Day

Raven beauty Anne Hathaway has debuted her new short pixie cut while filming her new movie in France.

The actress looked the image of Audrey Hepburn as she walked the streets of Paris.

But alas, her representative has confirmed that the new shorn look is nothing other than movie magic and is actually a well-placed wig.

Anne is currently filming new romantic comedy One Day with co-star Jim Sturgess.

The Devil Wears Prada star is known for her long flowing locks and fans were stunned when they saw her new ‘do.

Hathaway decided not to suffer for her art and go the method-acting route but to cheat instead and keep her the length of her own hair.

Style Weekly : Fall’s Hottest Hairstyles in 3 Steps or Less!

Sleek Side-Part

Taylor Swift’s pin-straight strands “add an edge without taking away from her dress,” says the singer’s stylist Jemma Muradian. “It’s a smart look that goes well with fall fashion.”

STEP ONE Flip head upside-down and blow-dry hair. Gently rake hands through hair, but keep strands from looking greasy by limiting contact with the roots: “Touching your scalp causes it to release natural oils,” explains Muradian.
STEP TWO Flat iron side-parted locks with one slow movement from roots to ends and spritz with hairspray

Polished Bedhead
Zoe Saldana’s glossy, tousled locks “blend femininity and sexiness, with a slight edginess,” says Tresemme stylist, Mara Roszak, who created this look.

STEP ONE Comb anti-frizz cream through damp hair and blow-dry smooth.
STEP TWO Beginning an inch away from the roots, create loose curls with a medium iron. “Let the strands twist naturally as they wrap around the barrel,” advises Roszak.
STEP THREE Shake hair out with fingers and mist with finishing spray.

High, Textured Bun
“This updo is everything that Vanessa Hudgens is: hip, current, casual and sexy,” says the actress’s stylist Bruce Wayne.

STEP ONE Apply thickening cream to damp hair and blow-dry with a large round brush for volume.
STEP TWO Mist-in shine spray. Pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
STEP THREE Gently wrap locks to form a bun and hold the updo in place with hairspray and “as many bobby pins needed to make it feel secure,” says Wayne.


Soft, Bouncy Curls

Katy Perry’s stylist Danilo created “glamorous, yet effortless looking” spirals for the MuchMusic Video Awards.

STEP ONE Mist well-conditioned hair with leave-in conditioner and volumizer before blow-drying.
STEP TWO Side-part hair and set with large rollers. Curl the bangs and crown backwards and wrap the sides under and down. “The direction of the set is key, because it creates the volume and flow of the finished style,” says Danilo.
STEP THREE Once hair cools, work styling cream through the spirals with fingers and spray with texturizer.

Style Weekly : Rihanna’s ‘Crazy’ Hair Festive !

Rihanna’s gone streaking – in her hair, that is.

Rihanna recently rocks out her bright red new hair as she hits the stage during Rock in Rio Madrid Festival on Saturday (June 5) in Arganda del Rey, Spain.
She’s been rocking stripy, bleach blond highlights last evening in New York City. An edgy addition to her already edgy crop, the highlights add a decidedly 80s flair to the Barbadian beauty’s look. And while the 80s are in right now, we’re not totally sold on Rihanna’s new ‘do.

But not like she’d care. Because when it comes to her hair, Rihanna’s a rebel. The singer famously enlisted hair stylist Ursula Stephen to chop off her long, Beyonce-esque locks in 2007 before shooting the album cover for Good Girl Gone Bad – and without giving her record label, Def Jam Recordings, any advance notice.

But that’s ancient hair-story.

Here’s some of Rihanna’s many look below !
