When it comes to what is trending in the hairstyle category, you can always be assured that if you look to celebrities you will find what is current with color and cut. Sometimes, actors do have to adapt their look to whatever role that they may be playing at the time, but you will definitely see their individual style shine through.
For men this year, you will be seeing more of the “swept back” look like you see with this photo of actor Colin Farrell. It is a very neat, almost vintage look, but still allows for a little piecey layering of the hair, so that you don’t end up looking like you are wearing a helmet. Colin’s facial hair is also closely trimmed, in a movement away from the bushy bearded look.
Also, you will see more men this year with a pompadour style haircut that very hot in the fashion world. This particular hairstyle dates back to the 1700’s and was also popular with singers like Elvis. It is characterized by an upsweep of the hair off the forehead in a rolling fashion that keeps the bulk of the hair on top of your head. In this photo of fashion icon and soccer star David Beckham, the sides and back of his hair are shaved more closely to pair with his facial hair, giving it an almost a congruent look. For either one of these styles, styling products and a blow dryer with round brush will be a must.
As far as female hairstyles are concerned, the “curly girl” is back, so if you are lucky enough to not have to perm, roll, or wave your hair, then enjoy the fact that you are “in” this season. You will be seeing a lot of the lose “beach wave” tresses in women with longer hair like in this photo of actress Olivia Wilde with her flowing long hair that is colored in a very trendy ombre style where the darker on top fades into the lighter on the bottom.
For the short hair category, actress Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect example of a short wispy hairstyle that is still feminine looking to highlight her beautiful facial features, but still with not too much styling to deal with when it comes to getting ready in the am.
Some celebrities are known for their roles in movies and television shows, but there are a number of them that are known for their fashion sense, on and off the Red Carpet.
One guy who looks as good on the street as he does when he is acting in front of the camera is Bradley Cooper. Here is a photo of him at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC a few weeks back, when he was showing support for his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse, as she strolled the catwalk. Since the color grey is the new black, he looks fantastic in a heathered grey crew neck top that has a peak of a white undershirt, and is topped off with a black double-breasted sports jacket. Bradley’s grey micro-pattern trousers add a little interest without being too loud. Of course, his scruffy facial hair and spiky brown hairdo just completes the look.
Another guy who makes a point to look cool, with just a few simple wardrobe pieces is Colin Farrell. Here is an example of his fashion sense being dressed in a blue and white check, button-down shirt that is under a thin knit grey cardigan. With his cuffs turned back over the sweater and having the shirt tails hanging out, keeps Colin’s look casual and modern. I really like his added accessories of his silver hoops, wrapped leather bracelets, and black Fedora. By adding all these elements to a pair of great fitting, dark denim jeans Colin put the frosting on the cake.
One couple who seems to have fashion synergy is Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Whenever they are seen together, the both look equally fashionable. Out for a day of shopping and strolling along the cobblestone streets of what looks like Rodeo Drive, they each had their designer sunglasses and black leather moto jackets on. Jessica dresses up her look with a flowing brown animal print scarf, a pair of tonal print pants, and a dressy pair of black leather flats. Justin stayed a little more casual with his white shirt, grey twisted scarf, worn-looking jeans, and sneakers.
While I was watching the Tonight Show one evening, I happen to see the Irish actor Colin Farrell take a seat next to Jay Leno. The 36 year old Farrell has been in many TV shows and movies since 1998, most recently the comedy “Horrible Bosses” and “Total Recall”. What caught my attention was his overall look. Colin Farrell’s closely trimmed beard and moustache, along with his spikey dark hair and double hoop earrings made him look modern, instead of scruffy. He had on a light grey button-down shirt that showed his shape, without being too tight. Colin had the cuffs turned back to highlight the leather bracelets on both wrists and his silver-tone Claddagh pinky ring. He kept the rest of his look monochromatic with his dark slim-fit jeans and black cowboy boots.
