Hair Envy

I will admit it: there are several celebrities who have hair that can me envious. I will forever try to recreate Vanessa's cute little spiral curls and Gisele's carefree, tumbling waves.
(I really like how she layered the necklaces over the shirt and it looks great with the belt. The jacket brings the whole look together!)
A few tips for Vanessa's look: (If you have thin or limp hair, first begin with some mousse.)

1. Start with damp hair and scrunch with a curl enhancing spray.

2. Blow dry with a diffuser.

3. Using scrunching gel, twist small pieces around your finger. (Soften the gel by rubbing it in the palm of your hands first. The warmth from your hands will make the it easier to work with.)

4. Finish with a light mist of hairspray to keep curls in place. (Go easy on the hairspray. Too many products can weigh the curls down and cause them to unwind.) If you have extra time or want a fancy updo, gently gather hair at the nape of the neck and twist. Secure with bobby pins but allow face-framing pieces to hang out. Pull a few curls out of the top section to give your hair some texture.

(These jeans so so good on her.)

A few tips for Gisele's look: (For smaller curls, make tighter coils. For larger coils, loosely wrap the hair over a curling iron.)
1. Start with slightly damp hair and run some smoothing cream through it.

2. Using bobbypins, twist your hair into a coil and pin the coil to your head. Make some larger coils and some smaller ones. If using a curling iron, wrap the hair around the curling iron- do not clamp. This will cause the curls to be too much of a spiral instead of a loose wave. (Different size curls make the hair look more natural.)

3. Allow to air dry for best results or blow dry on low.

4.Undo coils and gently shake out curls.

5. Mist with a light spray.
