This Spring Make Heads Turn With These Hollywood Hairstyles And Hair Trends
As kids many of us know the story of Rapunzel. A beautiful girl with amazingly long blonde hair cast away in a tower only to be found by a handsome prince who wins her over and the two end up living happily ever after. The story is liked by young boys and girls alike. In the process though such stories create impressions on our minds and we begin to set standards around features that define beauty. Long hair for women is such one such standard. It is a sign of femininity, good health, youth and beauty. No wonder, therefore that doing one’s hair and setting it up to be similar to popular Hollywood hairstyles is one of the activities that are part of a women’s make-up routine.
The presence of hair on human heads and even new born babies has been an area of intense research in academia. Early humans were known to have hair all over their bodies. Even today an extremely small group of people who suffer from the Werewolf Syndrome have extreme growth of hair. Humans are believed to have lost their fur 2.5-3 million years ago when transiting from a forest habitat to the open savanna, as an effect of natural selection. This development made it possible to run fast and hunt animals close to the equator without getting overheated. An exception was however head hair, which was kept to provide thermal insulation of the scalp from the sun, to protect against ultra-violet radiation exposure, and also to provide cooling.

While Long hair for women is viewed to be a sign of fertility, youth, health and beauty. The same for men is considered to be a sign of wealth, power as well as creativity, free thinking and rebellion. In the olden times it was very common for men to sport long hair as seen by the depictions of old kings, warriors, scientists and artists. In the 21st century however, men normally keep short hair while women sport long hair. The ability then to have different kinds of hairstyles for different hair lengths only lies with women. Like many other fashion trends, even hair trends are influenced by Hollywood hairstyles. Lets take a look at a few spring and summer hair trends that are being worn by leading actresses from the Hollywood Film and television fraternity.
Milkmaid Braided Bun
One of the classiest hairdos – the milkmaid braid, is an epitome in itself. The milkmaid braid oozes innocence and an underlying sensual awareness that not many hairstyles in themselves can muster. Such a style has been spotted, both on the street and on the runway.
Get the look: Prep the hair with Masterpiece then starting from your parting place in your braid working the 3 strands under each other instead of over to create a 3D effect. Then start on the other side of your parting and place in a second braid wrapping them over each other at the back and pinning into place, spritz with Head Rush to give shine.
From the hassle-free to the extravagant, from daytime to evening, the low ponytail is amongst the hairstyles to master for your spring 2014 hair repertoire. Last year was all about a sleek ponytail, a tie-in with the year’s sports fashion trend. Through their style evolution, one thing about ponytail hairstyles remains certain: they are styles that are never to be going out of style. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many of 2014′s hair trends are built upon the ponytail.
Get the look: Apply S factor Dream Drops to pre-washed hair, blow dry sleek and straight, use flat iron spray on each section before using a straightening iron. Bring hair into a low pony at the nape and spritz with Vivacious Hair Spray to hold the look in place and add extra shine.
Textured Soft Waves

Soft yet undone, this variation of the soft waves hairstyle incorporates some of that bed hair tousle and beachy texture. This hairstyle is relaxed yet still flirty, with that little bit of an edge, making it very natural looking and perfect for spring.
Get the look: Apply Superstar Queen for a day to dry hair then blow dry with a round brush, whilst the hair is still warm. Spritz Maxed Out on each two inch section, and wrap them around your fingers horizontally and clip to the head. Let them cool for a while and then take all the clips out and shake your head upside down to encourage body and movement, finish with After Party to give separation and sheen.
Bohemian hair makes us happy. Maybe it’s something about how “undone” it looks: Loose, wavy, and with stray hairs all over the place, it’s the ultimate romantic hairstyle and somehow always elevates your personality. The Boho twist updo is perfect for the upcoming spring and summer months, and is as lovely and simple to re-create.
ABOVE: CAN YOU GUESS who these celebrities are?
Bob haircuts are always in style. They’re practically everywhere, so if you want to stand out a little bit, start rocking a wavy bob! Wavy bobs are a refreshing twist to the classic bob hairstyle.
Get the look: Prep pre-washed hair with Totally Baked, rough dry the product in, take a curling iron and wrap pieces of hair around it, spritzing with Hard Head Hairspray as you go. Let them cool down, simply shake them through with your fingers apply some Sugar Dust through them for hold and create longevity.
To the men reading this feature, it is likely that you were probably not able to understand most of what is written about the various Hollywood hairstyles. After all, most men are used to finishing their hairdo in a few minutes. The women though now have many ideas for spring and summer looks this year.
