Celebrity Hairstyle Simplified: How To Get Stacey Keibler’s Glamorous Hair

 

Last week, we gave the Best Down Do Award to Stacy Keibler for her Grade A Academy

Awards Style. Stacy Keibler’s simple style with a twist had heads turning on the red

carpet in an otherwise over-saturated hairstyle choice of full-on fancy updos or a simple

long style. See Keibler’s gorgeous face-framing style and a simple back twist below. It

was popular with you, too. So here is how to do it, step-by-step. Rock it on a night out, or

soften it for a weekend getaway.

 

Step by Step to the Glamorous Stacey Keibler Do:

 

1. Hair Prep: completely wash hair and condition only the ends. Oily roots will weigh this

look down.

2. Before blow-drying, in lieu of a conditioner, choose a root lifting product to spray at

the roots and lightweight mousse to brush all throughout the ends. Part your hair to the

side.

3. Use a round brush and polish the ends during the last ten minutes of your blow -ry.

Styling tip: Blow-dry your hair upside down to get more volume/body.

3. Set your hair in hot rollers that are about 1 inch -1.5 in size. Most importantly, DO

NOT release the rollers until they are completely cooled down, or your curls won't last.

4. After the taking out the rollers, run your fingers through some of the curls to break

them up and give the hairstyle a softer look.

5. Section a medium-sized diagonal section in the back from one side of your hairline

and sweep it over to the other side. Twist inward as you get to the other side, and secure

with small bobby pins, and tuck underneath the hair so no one can see it! Make sure to

criss-cross your bobby pins, as they stay in place better that way. Insider tip: use a mirror

behind you and in front of you to help you with this part so that it doesn’t get out of hand.

 

Voila, you're done! I said it before, and I’ll say it again: I am expecting to see this look

recreated many times over, and hope that my readers are able to after reading this step-

by-step guide. Until next time, happy styling!

My Picks for Best Hair at the Oscars 2012


Rolling Out the Red Carpet for Oscar-themed Hairstyle Awards


The Academy Awards is the perfect time for actresses to shine, and they often do. From a

gorgeous designer gown to beautiful hair, it’s a night showcasing talent and style. While

many lists have gone over the best and worst dressed, in my blog, I wanted to take the

chance to give out my own awards for what I think is really the most important accessory

to any look: an outstanding hairstyle. Several celebrity starlets deserve awards in several

categories: So please wait while I open the envelope.


Best Bangs

With a short, sleek style and sleek bangs to match, Rose Byrne wears them very well,

helped by the fact that she has the perfect face shape for this off-to-the-side-side

part. Even though it’s a down hairdo, it’s so polished and classy. For single-handedly

redeeming bangs, Rose Byrne gets this award. Stunning.


Best Curls

Penelope Cruz has been turning to the retro look a lot lately. It works. It looks classy

and polished, especially with her shorter length. Most of the time, we are used to

seeing this look worn with long hair. A perfect example of that is when Megan Fox did

it. But the fact that it’s more true to the decade it came from makes it more original.

Because ‘timeless’, ‘classic’ and ‘gorgeous’ are words you want to be used when others

are describing your look when you go to such a prestigious event as the Oscars, Penelope

wins for these sophisticated curls.


Best Updo

Emma Stone’s statement red gown and red hair could have been overdone, but instead,

she paired it with a polished updo that made her stand out from the A-List crowd. It’s

shiny and it’s tight and neat, without looking wound-up and hair sprayed to high heaven

(frequent offenders of those faults in updos have been J-Lo and Kim Kardasian, sorry to

say). Simple in the back and pinned up with curls, her style is the kind that you want to

have when you are accepting an award like an Oscar. She certainly wins our best updo

award.


Best Down Do

Wearing hair down to an event like the Oscars can backfire very easily, especially when

the down do is simple. So, this is award winner is a shocker because her style looks so

simple, but the back is done very creatively. Stacy Keibler turned heads all night with

a gorgeous face-framing style and a simple back twist. It is such a simple little switch-

up that you would never think to do it, but when done artistically, it looks amazing. I am

expecting to see this look recreated time and again, so Keibler takes this award hands

down. Beautiful.


Best Short Hair

 

Really short hair seems to be the antithesis of Hollywood glamour these days, but don’t

tell that to Michelle Williams. Williams wins this award because she looks absolutely

supermodel-like with her short blond locks that framed her perfect, glowing complexion.

For rocking the ultra-short ‘do and still looking absolutely stunning, she wins the award.


It was hard to cut the categories off there, but I could keep handing out awards until the

next Oscars are handed out. What do you think of my picks, is there anyone you would

have chosen for a category instead? As my picks are subjective, I’d love to hear your

thoughts. Also, are there any of the styles that you would wear? The one that I get the

most requests for, I will create a step-by-step how-to for you so that you can recreate the

look yourself.


Until then, happy hair styling!
