This Memorial Day weekend, whether you’re headed home or on a fabulous trip you’ll definitely want to arrive in style. Without a doubt the airport is one of the best places to spot great celebrity style. So while last week I did a whole post on  inspirational red carpet at Cannes, this week I’m focusing on the wealth of beauty and sartorial style seen at the city’s airport terminals. My favorite stylish celebrities, and their fabulous hair touched down in either long and loose cascading waves or more low-maintenance raked-back braids and ponytails. Either way, these were some high impact looks. So whatever your style there is a great jet setter with great hair guaranteed to inspire you the next time you’re packing your bags.

So I just found out I’m headed to Paradise City—ahem—the Guns N’ Roses concert in July. Not only can I not wait to see Axl and Slash but I can’t wait to relive the early ‘90s. (Ok so I was only a toddler then but hey I was alive!) To pull together my look, I’ll be pulling out my cutoff denim and vintage t-shirt courtesy of Forever 21. But no outfit is complete without a great hair do. After doing a little research I found an amazing rock and roll pony that is anything but basic. It’ll get my strands out of my face and keep my cool while I’m singing along to ballads, lighter in hand. Will I see you there? You don’t have to be concert bound to wear this look. Click through to get the how to. –– Michelle Rotbart

If you’re going to sit in the front row at a big show like Christian Dior, you’d better look great from behind. Jessica Alba’s jeweled collar and sleek, folded updo nailed it at Paris Fashion Week. From behind, her folded bun had a fan shape reminiscent of a geisha’s chignon. In front, her dark roots, center part, and glossy smoothness gave the style classic appeal.
