Diane Kruger's Hair at Tommy Hilfiger 2009 Spring Fashion Week

How-To: Diane Kruger's Fresh Twisty Side Ponytail

Diane Kruger's style never disappoints. She's like the girl you admire from afar and want to befriend because she's just that cool. At yesterday's Tommy Hilfiger show, Kruger sported a casually trendy side-swept ponytail with a twist — literally. While we've seen versions of this look just about everywhere lately, her shorter style gives it an effortlessly chic (and sassy) look. For a how-to on achieving this fashionably laid-back style, check out my instructions below:

  • Blow-dry hair and apply a light/medium hold shine gel like Aveda Brilliant Retexturing Gel ($6 to $16) when your hair is about 80 percent dry. Continue drying using a brush to create texture.
  • Part your hair to one side (left or right — you choose). Next separate your fringe area. Do this by taking a chunk of hair from the parted side that has more hair, starting at your hairline, and going about two to three inches (right around your ear area). The hair you are gathering now is the hair that will be twisted later, so make sure you have a decent amount. Repeat this step on the lighter side of the part.
  • Pull remaining hair back into a low-slung ponytail on the opposite side of your part. So, if you parted your hair on the left side, sling the ponytail back to the right.
  • For the rest of the instructions,


  • Now we twist. Take one fringe section at a time (leaving a few pieces out to frame your face) and lightly roll back into your ponytail. Affix the rolls to your existing ponytail with an elastic band or bobby pins in a color that matches your hair such as Scunci Bobby-Pins ($1.90 to $2.10) in blonde, brown/black, or auburn. Pin any loose pieces on into the twist, if needed.
  • Finishing touches: Use your fingers to soften any hard edges. Finish off with a light/medium hold hair spray.

Cute look, I'll have to give this a try. I do have to say though that I'm not going to pair it with plaid because she looks seriously farm girl here.

Diane Kruger is a natural beauty. She has beautiful features and love her flaxen hair.

huh?? ahem, as I was saying... you know, this look has been around forever.(katherine hepburn) I've worn my hair like this for 20 years off and on. It's a necessity in humid weather. Try it! You'll love not having to curl it. But if you have thick hair like mine, flat iron first so you can twist it.

I loved her makeup more than anything else. everything about her face is so fresh and ethereal in a natural way. :) Bella, could you please post a how-to of Diane's look?

I think this is a ponytail for her because her hair is short. But for those who have long hair you could do a chignon. That's where you roll your hair into a bun with just a ponytail ring and some of it twists out in the rolling.

Am I the only one who doesn't get the instructions?? It looks like her hair is in a side loose bun, but the instructions are for a ponytail?
