This bobby pinned updo by Natalie Portman is a fantastic fit for when you need to change up your look, keep hair off the face, or attend a special occasion. With hair swept away, pretty eyes are exposed, cheekbones are lifted, shoulders and neck are beautifully naked. It’s why we always see updos at weddings and red carpet events. We love the disheveled –– almost fuzzy –– texture on top. It gives this polished style a dash of insouciance.

Katie from the Skunkboy fashion blog, has hearts pounding for hair like this! How could you not love the tresses, the look, the girl? Everything –– from Dorothy’s shoes to the placement of the pin –– about this whimsical, flirty American girl next door is beautiful, and a fine example for anyone who feels they need help with their own styling. The copper-tone red is ethereal, dainty –– and a perfect fit for a pale complexion. The classic loose layer with side-swoosh is elegantly styled with a sexy wave cascade.

Oh, Katy! From bubblegum pink to salacious blue to purple velvet you keep us chasing rainbows! This new color, first spotted at Coachella, is the darkest, most glowering tone she’s worn since the brooding, raven locks of June 2011. We love how rich and lush the purple looks. If you want an avant-garde color, the trick is to pre-lighten hair first. Then you can choose between a range of palettes.
