Gorgeous New Hairstyles for 2010

Make a hair headband

Take sections from behind your ears, wrap around your head (twist in the center, if you’d like) and bobby pin. So chic!


Sleek up your cropped cut

None of that shaggy bedhead this season—short hair is polished and sexier than ever. Mist shine spray onto your palms and lightly run them over your hair to give it a high gloss.


Go to new heights!

Try this dramatic Audrey Hepburn-ish style for a major event. First, tease hair like crazy. Now take a section, pull it to the back of your head, roll under so it poufs up and pin. Do your whole head, smooth with a brush, add hairspray and slip on a thin band.
Do a better ballerina bun

A high knot is too little-girl; keep it below your crown. Gather hair, twist the tail, coil, tuck in the ends and pin.

Add some extras!
Three gorgeous ways to dress up your hair this season: bright barrettes, bold-print scarves and pretty jeweled pins.
Go for a glam pony

The trick to giving yours this smooth-as-glass look: Flat-iron your tail.
Define your part

There’s nothing wrong with a messy line, but a neat, clean, done-with-an-actual-comb one looks so crisp and fresh now. To do it, make your part when hair’s damp; smooth on gel; let dry.


Try a fresh twist

For the first look, brush hair smooth, loop your ponytail up and pin the ends under. For the others, leave those ends sticking out.


Add a flowery accent.

Try blossoms on a headband—an update on that old bloom-in-hair thing. Shopstyle.com has a huge selection.


Do face-framing swoops.
Don’t Natalie’s look so pretty?


Think half sleek…
Use a flatiron to straighten hair, clip it in the back and fluff it up


…or pouf the crown.
Tease up and down with a comb; pin.


Try a dressy pony.
An exceptionally smooth one (use gel) with hair around the elastic is elegant—not at all workout-y.


Go low.
Sweep hair to the side so it dips over an eye.


Be a body builder.Get Charlize’s heft, even if hair is thin, by twirling it with a big round brush as you blow-dry


Clip hair at your nape.
Then let it casually fall forward over your shoulders. Offset it with statement earrings.


Pin back bangs.
Back-comb for height.


Work contrasting color.
Mary’s revelatory blond-over-brown bob deserves an award or something. (Just see a pro for complex color like this.)


Fake a short cut.
Use a curling iron to create chic ringlets, gather at the back, tuck length up and under and pin.


Get all edgy-sweet.
Piecey bangs plus a braid gets you schoolgirl gone bad.

Make a top braid.
Starting one at the front of your hair, not the back, keeps it fresh


Borrow from a ballerina.
No, it’s not exactly breakthrough, but it’s amazing how a sleek bun is so sexy every time.
