Alyssa Milano's Pixe Haircut
The Alyssa Milano hairstyle is a funky and fresh pixie look. It features many short layers, which are perfect for framing the face and accentuating facial features.

Still Trendy Haircut in 2010, Pixie Haircut
After you have washed your hair, apply some styling mousse. Make sure that it has a strong hold to keep the style in place. When it comes to blow-drying, you don’t even need a brush. All you need to do is run your fingers through your hair while drying. Do this until your hair is totally dry. The messier it is the better it will look. Use a molding cream to flatten the top, and then the sides. In both cases drag your hair forward. For a bit of extra texture you can use the molding cream to pinch clumps of hair together.
If you follow this styling procedure, you can have the Alyssa Milano haircut in a matter of just minutes.

Teenage Boys Hairstyles, Trends For 2010
There are a few great ways for "teenage boys" to try their hair this year. Take a few examples from the celebrities. If there is anyone that can show teens a versatile look it is Cristiano Ronaldo. While he is a bit older, he has a very youthful style. His image is very stylish and edgy which appeals to many teens. His hair is cropped close on the sides and left long on top for multiple styling applications. Cristiano has made the fauxhawk very popular, and he has also shown that he can use this style to wash and wear daily. Cristiano’s hair is totally easy to change. It is highly adaptable for any situation which teens need for their active lifestyles today.
Adam Lambert is another great style for teens. Adam is currently the best example for the Emo style for fashion and hair. He has relatively short hair all around his ears and neckline while maintaining longer, layered bangs which he can style in many ways. This is another very versatile cut that can be styled with just a few products in any way you want. And of course there is also super cute Justin Bieber with his trendy haircut!

For a slightly harder-to-style look with great effect, check out the Twilight series movie actors Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. They have a look that has taken the teen scene by storm! Their stylists cut their hair about the same length all around and used mousse to style it up. It basically looks like flames of hair coming off their head! But the effect is very dramatic, chic, and highly coveted this year!

Best Celebrity Hairstyles 2009, 2010
It is hard to pick any celebrity as the best hairstyle this year because they all decided to try to get so creative! Different colored hair, different lengths and dramatic bangs all added to the competition. Here are a few of our favorites!
Lady Gaga was a head turner this year! She made punk look good with a sexy style that looked good with her hair down or cut to a medium length. She used very striking colors and a base of platinum blonde that really showed her personality. She wins hands down for most successfully showing her individualism and pushing punk to high fashion!
Lady GaGa Hair
Katie Holmes shocked us all with her shorter Victoria Beckham-style look. We give her the most dramatically changed award! It looks like Rihanna’s style has now started pushing other women to start living on the shorter edge. Now that women have seen Katie, there is definitely a high fashion trend towards shorter hair with a wide range of dramatic looks with the use of the angles and levels of women’s bangs.
Katie Holmes' Short Hairdo
The only reason Rihanna doesn’t win this one is because she does wonderful things with changing up her short style, but she hasn’t veered away from the shorter styles. We’re looking for dramatic changes for this award!
Sienna Miller’s gorgeous locks show us that you can still have fun, and be fashion forward with longer hair as well! She has taken her layered bangs and Veronics Lake-inspired waves straight to the top of the charts this season!

Stage, Screen Hairstyles Trends
Hair has gotten shorter on most celebrities this year, and it has made many people rethink their whole image. However, if you were looking at the stage in Saitama, Japan this year you would have seen Beyonce with long flowing locks that would make your jaw drop. Adam Lambert, on the other hand, has gone straight towards the fringe look that has become so popular and edgy this year.
No one is saying that she has dramatically changed her look or anything, but with her patented spiral curling mane, Beyonce wins for the best hairstyle on stage in the women’s category! And the best thing about it is that if you want that style, it is easily achievable by wrapping strands of your hair around a vertically-held curling iron. It is number one in our eyes because of the dramatic volume that it gets that really adds a sexy, dangerous look. She didn’t color her hair for effect, it is natural looking and stunning at the same time. And there is no question that it really sells her whole Sasha Fierce image while on stage.
For the men, we have to give this year’s most dramatic look to Adam Lambert. He has gone so fashion forward for men! He has taken the whole Emo fashion – straight out of the Twilight saga – and made it fashionable on stage. He is the perfect image of the Fringe look with his spiky, messy hair style that has become the runway and magazine favorites this year for Generation Y. The Twilight saga has impacted our younger generation without question, and Adam has brought it wholeheartedly to the stage!

Best Hairstyles For Square Faces in 2010
Strong, square jaw lines make this look slightly more masculine than other facial shapes, and softening the lines is a great way to create balance. Here are some basic tips to flattering your facial features.
Short to medium cuts with waves or roundness to the hair will flatter your straight-lined features the most. Wispy bangs offer softer lines that draw the eye away from a square face. Also, you may consider an off-center part with some height to your hair as part of your overall look because that will offset any harsher lines. You have a very symmetrical shape which will benefit from the elongated effects of raising the hair a little bit. And again, if you have straight hair, you might consider a little curl or wave to help achieve a nice balance with your straight features.
Try to avoid long straight styles that accentuate your jawbone. And stay away from the linear bang cuts or the down-the-center parts in your hairstyles also. You want to break up some of the symmetrical features in your face, not emphasize them! You can wear a layered bob, but don’t end it at the chin. Make the cut above or below the jaw line to soften the look. Adding a little height and volume towards the top of your head will balance out a wider jaw as well.
Whatever you do, a little research online can help. Look at celebrities that have a square face, and use this article to ponder their hair styles. Then, bring in some pictures to your stylist and be bold when you choose your perfect style!

Best Pageant Hairstyles Winter, Summer 2010
The latest styles may be leaning towards shorter hair, but if you want to win a pageant, the odds are better if you have longer hair. In fact, many of the winners in the last several years have had the same style – long, down, and wavy!
Kristen Dalton's Long Sedu Hair
You can look around for the latest fashions, and some of the more popular choices may project an image for you that will win favor with the judges. However, the most important thing is that you present a glamorous appearance in the most natural and becoming light. You have to take your talent into consideration along with what overall image you are looking to project. And you will want to be able to move around at all stages of the competition.
However, all of that being said, look at the five highest ranking Miss America contestants in 2009. Kristen Dalton of North Carolina ultimately won, but Carrie Prejean of California, Alicia-Monique Blanco from Arizona, Laura Chukanov from Utah, and Maria Montgomery from Kentucky all had the same hairstyle – long, down, and wavy! You do the math.
Kristen Dalton - Pageant Long Wavy Hair
So if you want to win, research your facial shape, and find a style and color that will naturally look good with your facial features, eye color, and skin tone. Cut it in a style that is long, down, and wavy that suits your face and is easily worn in every part of the competition! Even straight hair can be cut and styled to easily create small waves at least. So never lose hope, put your best foot forward, and just be confident in your final choice!

Mandy Moore Hairstyles
Mandy Moore has gone from a long bob style, to long flowing locks, and back to a wispy fringe haircut with ease! It isn’t difficult to change your look if you work with the different lengths, angles, and colors that compliment with your face shape and skin tones.
Mandy Moore Formal & Casual Hairstyle
Mandy has an oval face shape that looks really good with layered bangs that frame her face. And Mandy’s stylist used this technique at various lengths and angled cuts. For more luxurious curls, Mandy wore her bangs back or feathered them out to show off her prominent, but not large, forehead. A simple part in the middle of her hair seems to work for her with any length, but she has recently gone to the more stylish side-swept fringe look that is gaining popularity and seems to be a trend into 2010.
Mandy Moore Latest Hair
Mandy’s use of color has always set her apart in style as well. Without getting too outrageous, she has used blond accents, gone fully blonde, played with auburn, and went back to brown with remarkable ease and grace. It is true that her makeup artist had to be in great synch with her stylist to make these looks work! But her use of natural colors in her hair and makeup compliment her down-to-earth look. She is easily able to be glamorous or cute depending on what she wants. Clear skin and healthy hair also work to Mandy’s advantage. Throughout all of her hair changes, even into different chemical colorings, Mandy has always had healthy, shiny hair. The health of her hair and skin make Mandy all the more attractive and photogenic. This is a key element to her confident, carefree image

Japanese Hairstyles, Winter, Summer 2010 Edition
Although the long, black hair of Asian women is a standard look, not all Japanese women have this type of hair. And, quite frankly, not all Japanese women WANT this type of hair. Japanese women want versatility!
It has become a million dollar industry to alter the appearance of naturally straight or black hair. The Japanese have always been on the cutting edge of fashion, and that fact remains true today! Tokyo is a fashion hub transforming many of the cultures of the world into an Asian-style look that continues to morph and stay on the edge. They use style, length, color, and texture to bring out new styles all the time.
Shorter styles are in the forefront of fashion in Japan now as it is on the runways and in many of the high fashion magazines around the world. We are only beginning to see the possibilities of the creations that stylists can make with shorter hair. These shorter styles work with any shaped face. And whether straight, wavy, a perm, or naturally thick curls, Asian short hair styles can work for you!
There are 3 bob styles – casual, clear, and natural – that show the kind of variations of effects that can be achieved with almost the same hair style. That means you can start with a shorter version and change your look a little each month to “grow into” the others. That is a great incentive to get experimental with these looks because it is easy to transform your look from one to the other to fit any occasion!

Nicole Kidman Hair
Nicole Kidman was born with naturally curly hair, but you would never know this from the multitude of straight styles this outstanding actress has worn throughout her career. She has gained masterful control over her hair; giving her a lot of styling options.
If you have curly hair that you want to tame, follow Nicole Kidman’s example and seek out the special treatments that are being developed for this problem. Even for women who like the curly look want it to be under control and formed into the individual ringlets that are all the rage today.
Nicole Kidman Hair
Choose a frizz control product that contains silicone or jojoba oil because this provides an excellent base for other products. Next you might want to apply a gel that is formulated for curly hair. Choose the hair product that will add extra shine and give you more flexibility in managing your hair. One way to reduce frizz is to comb these products through wet hair and then allow the hair to dry without any type of manipulation. While the hair is drying gently take a handful of hair and push the ends toward the roots while squeezing and lifting the hair to give it more volume. Resist the temptation to run your fingers through the ends of the hair while it is drying. After your hair is completely dry, gently separate the curls and lift the hair for fullness. Keep in mind that the more you handle your hair, the more frizz can develop.

2010 Fringe Hairstyles Trends
Fringe hairstyles have made a comeback. These hairstyles are sexy, chic, and easy to maintain. They can be adapted to suit any woman’s face and there are hundreds of ways you can add some fun to them. Fringe hairstyles are great to hide overly large foreheads or expression lines; they also can be excellent to draw attention to your eyes. Round faces can be thinned with a fringe while those with very long faces can actually use a fringe hairstyle to shorten their face and draw more attention to their beautiful features.
2010 Fringe Hair Trends
A popular fringe hairstyle for 2010 is the classic fringe. This style gives you a fresh look and brings out your eyes. The bangs are just above the eyes, and you can adapt this style to suit your lifestyle. It can end at the nape of your neck, or you can wear it just to your shoulders. Layers are a great option and add some fun to the style. This is a nice style if you have thin hair since layering will add some volume and make your hair appear thicker. You can also play with parts, add curls, and add highlights for new looks. Have fun with it! This style has become popular with teens and younger women in 2009.
Side Swept Bangs For 2010
Many other kinds of fringes are popular. Shattered fringes are done by cutting your bangs in extreme angles side to side. This gives you a peek-a-boo look that is just incredibly sexy. Adding blunt edges to your bangs at odd locations gives you a more radical look. If you are in your forties or fifties, try side swept fringes. These styles give you an elegant and classy look; you look beautiful without looking like you’re trying too hard to look young. Asymmetrical bangs can help bring out your features and are ideal for those who want to look funky by adding colors such as blue or pink to their hair.
Shenae Grimes Hair Tips
Maybe it is the Canadian air from her hometown of Toronto that has magically given Shenae Grimes her wavy s-shaped hair curls, but I think it is more likely that she uses extensions, but she also has to take good care of the hair, she does have!
Shenae Grimes Long Wavy Hair
No one wants to admit when they use extensions in their hair because they feel like they are fooling everyone and there is no reason to tell. And if someone asks if you have extensions in your hair, the only question I would ask in return is, “Does it look like I have extensions in my hair?” The answer to this question may be quite revealing!
Shenae Grimes Sexy Hairstyles
But extensions or not, Shenae Grimes always demonstrates a fantastic healthy hair appearance! If you have long hair like Ms. Grimes you should be careful to take care of it with a few easy steps. First off, if you color your hair, you need to also use a moisturizing conditioner to help heal the damage the coloring process forces on your hair. And even if you do not color all the time, you can amp up the color of your hair with some simple products like Ken Paves boost up color product with your daily conditioner. Use coloring sparingly and use daily moisturizing shampoo as well.
