I love Julia Roberts’ healthy thick hair. And Kate Hudson’s waves. And Jennifer Aniston’s perfect sun kissed hair color. Whose hair do you covet? For the new issue of InStyle Hair, the magazine asked top salons across the country to reveal the most requested celebrity hairstyles and today InStyle Senior Beauty Editor Patricia Tortolani shares some of the hottest styles.
The star: Eva Mendes
The style: Long layers
This collarbone length cut works during sweltering Hotlanta Summers because of the hefty dose of breezy layers. Wear it disheveled, done, or, on the steamiest day, pulled back into a ponytail.
SALT LAKE CITY
The star: Rihanna
The style: Shorn sides and brushed forward bangs
The trendsetting hit maker’s edgy crop is more wearable – and less flashy – than it seems. Parted deep and on the side, it can look like a tidy pixie; worn wavy it’s soft and sultry.
The star: Halle Berry
The style: Choppy pixie
Boy-short yet still super-feminine, this cut works for all hair types. But what makes it a favorite of women in Boston is that the short, wispy strands are truly a cinch to style.
The star: Kim Kardashian
The style: Cascading waves
The brunette bombshell’s long, tapered layers answer the call for volume in Texas. If your hair is fine, you may want to consider extensions to add body.
The star: First Lady Michelle Obama
The style: The lob
It’s no surprise that the First Lady’s long bob is a favorite inside the beltway: it’s perfect for women who want to look both chic and conservative. The shoulder-grazing style also flatters all face shapes.
The star: Victoria Beckham
The style: Tousled bob
The iconic, chin-length crop is trendy again thanks to a new piecey texture. The choppy style works best on fine hair because it maximizes fullness.
NEW YORK CITY
The star: Nicole Richie
The style: Long, eyelash-grazing bangs
This full-coverage fringe transitions seamlessly from uptown lunches to downtown discos. Just be sure the edges of the bangs taper gradually into the length of your hair – otherwise the style can feel too harsh.
