There’s no question about it, the most recent issue of Vanity Fair is pretty spectacular. It was full of Hollywood’s biggest stars and everyone was talking about the magazine’s “September issue.” The hype surrounding the issue was so great that it even made it to No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Naturally, we have to mention that Vanity Fair is famous for their fashion magazine, so it’s not a total surprise that their September issue is considered a ‘summer issue’ because it’s so beachy. The stars were stunning in every way and the clothes were impeccable, but it was the hair and make-up that really stole the show. We’re talking about the stars’ ‘do’s specifically. The majority of the models had fantastic hair and makeup that we can only dream of but it was the hairstyle that really made the difference. Many of the stars had crazy, beachy hairstyles that would’ve worked perfectly for the beach but they certainly wouldn’t leave the house. It was the perfect look for the gorgeous summer weather we’re starting to experience. The only ‘bad’ thing about the issue is that it’s already October, which means the beachy hair will only last for a few more months.
The New Look
One of the stars that really stood out to us was Robert Pattinson. The English actor and singer changed his hair and makeup style for the role of Cedric in the movie adaptation of The Rover. Since making that movie, he’s stuck with the style and hasn’t changed a thing about his hair and makeup. He really nailed it with this look and we couldn’t stop staring at him. We were so inspired by his style that we immediately started using it as a guide when styling our hair. It’s funny how trends come back in style after a while. When we saw that he was wearing this style again at the premiere of the movie, Hidden Figures, we were shocked because it was so different from what we’re used to seeing him in. Turns out, he was wearing the same shirt as in the previous movie and it’s the same designer: Alexandre Placki.
The First Photo From the Issue
As we mentioned, the stars were stunning as always and it was the hair and make-up that really stole the show. However, it was the very first photo from the issue that we just couldn’t stop looking at. It’s a classic beauty shot of Beyoncé wearing a black-and-white dress with a very unique hairdo. She has dyed her hair blond, which looks incredible with her skin and the dress is just something else. If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know we love a good ‘do and this is no exception. It’s not everyday we see a celebrity with such an intricate hairstyle, which actually looks like it took a lot of thought and planning. Of course, we want to try it out for ourselves but we know it will be difficult to achieve. If you ask us, this is how you should style your hair right now:
Light Brown Hair
If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know we’re big fans of hair color. There are many different ways to give your hair a new and shiny look and don’t be afraid to try out some of the trendy colors that are all the rage right now. We’d suggest using a hair mask and some heat protectant for the perfect outcome. Heat protection will help keep your hair hydrated during the process and make your hair look richer and more vibrant. If you’ve never tried it, it’s well worth the effort. You’ll use up less hair in the process and the results will be incredible.
Another great way to add some texture and glam to your hair is to layer it. One of the most famous layers out there is Lady Gaga’s hair. When you see her, you know exactly what kind of style she usually goes for. It’s a great solution for those who want to go for a classic look but don’t want to go the complete way with a complete hair makeover. If you try out this style, you’ll be guaranteed to turn heads.
If you’ve tried out the choppy hair trend before, you know exactly what we’re talking about. It’s simply chopping off the hair at the ends to create a messy and scraggly look. The great thing about this trend is that it’s incredibly easy to pull off and the results are incredible. Just make sure you keep the hair short because if it gets too long, it will start looking like a wreck. You can try it out for yourself, simply follow these steps:
1. Wash your hair
Make sure you wash your hair before trying out this style. The key to achieving a great look is by keeping the hair hydrated. You’ll go for a swim and then come out of the water looking stunning. The only downside is that you’ll have to wash your hair every day in order to keep it looking this good. If possible, try to avoid washing your hair during the day because that’s when the hair ends up looking drier and more damaged. The less you wash it, the better it will look in the long run. Simply follow these steps:
2. Use a heat protectant
While we don’t recommend using heat protectant on your scalp, it’s worth using on your ends. It will help keep your hair hydrated during the process and make your hair look richer and more vibrant. Follow this step to ensure you get the best possible results:
3. Apply a heat protectant to your palms
With your palms facing upward, apply some heat protectant to your palms. Make sure you rub the palms of your hands together to make sure you evenly distribute the product. It’s crucial that you get an even coat all over your palms because if there are any spots where the coating is a little thicker, the product will start to seep into the pores on your palms. That will result in dry, flaky skin, which isn’t what you want. The solution is to simply wipe off the excess product with a tissue or something similar. Rubbing your palms together will help improve blood circulation throughout your body, which is great for your health.
4. Brush your hair
Brushing your hair is an essential part of styling it. It will add some texture and volume to your hair, which you can’t achieve without using some kind of brush. We would suggest using a boar bristle brush because they are thick and make it easy for you to brush through your hair. It will add some shine and volume to your hair, which you can’t achieve without using some brush.
5. Blow dry your hair
We know what you’re thinking, it’s one thing to suggest using a brush to add volume to your hair but it’s another to actually do it. You’ll need to use a brush, add the volume you want and then finish it all off with a blow dry. It’s an essential part of styling any hair, which is why we suggest you add it to your routine. Try out this step:
6. Add a touch of curl to your hair
A great way to add some volume to your hair is to add some curls. It will make your hair appear larger and more glamorous. We would suggest using hair cream, which you can find in any drugstore, along with some clips to add the final touch of glam to your hair.
7. Use a face-masks
No, we don’t mean the kind you put on your face to stay fresh throughout the day. We mean the kind that help make your skin look flawless and beautiful. The great thing about face masks is that they are incredibly easy to use and only need to be reapplied about once or twice during the day. It’s an excellent way to add a bit of shine and volume to your hair without having to do anything too complicated. Just follow this step to achieve the best possible results:
