It's hard knowing that many awesome styles on the red carpet are tricky to recreate at home without pricey extensions. Hard . . . but not impossible. Next up, for our latest how-to re-do, we tackled Angelina Jolie's pretty style from the premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
My pal TeamSugar was craving this style so we reinterpreted it for her much shorter, all-natural hair. We took up a collection of bobby pins here at Sugar HQ, and made this wispy look with no gel or spray. See a picture of how it turned out and get my tips to create a similar look at home when you read more.
- Slick all your hair back into a tight ponytail at the nape of your neck.
- Divide out 1/4 of the hair in your ponytail and pull it aside. Loop the small section through the hair tie in the direction of the ponytail (this should create two equal little loops) and pin the excess.
- Take the large section of hair and wrap it around the top and thread it through both loops. Chances are, if your hair is not halfway down your back, you'll run out of that loop before you make it as far as Angelina's. Just pull it through the loops and pin it wherever you end up.
- For a sleek, polished look, finish up with hairspray.
That's Angelina on the left and our very own TeamSugar on the right!
