Her image, as is her mien, remained polished glamor with a flirty side, yet her hair was different and new. A shade of rich, dark chocolate, it is a natural fit for her complexion.

Check out Sandra Bullock on the vanguard of hair fashion! If you have long hair, this is a terrific alternative to letting it all hang loose, or to more traditional updos. Styled into a texturally alluring wavy side bun, the look features a faux bob, created by tucking and pinning hair under in the back. The diagonal parting, meanwhile, helps to engender soft, face-framing asymmetry that lifts up Sandra’s cheekbones and chin, mouth, and sparkling brown eyes.

For Evan Rachel Wood’s hair, it is an exciting time. She started 2012 as an archetypal strawberry blonde bombshell, but changed it up earlier in the year with a short crop cut. Now that crop is growing out she is styling it with newfound twisted pixie inspiration. With big, pretty eyes, red lipstick, exposed shoulders and neck, a bold, brave attitude, this look works a treat.

Keira benefits from lots of gorgeous natural shine and luster in her hair, and this modern bob is a great way to highlight these features. The clean lines and soft shape is pretty and feminine, while the perfect length –– in-between the jaw and the shoulders ––helps to elongate the features of her face. For the color, Keira plays into her natural sparkle with a shimmering mid-level brown that adds texture, thickness, and dimension.
