How-To: Ashlee Simpson's Laid-Back Asymmetric Updo

How-To: Ashlee Simpson's Laid-Back Asymmetric Updo

Have you noticed a hot trend emerging on the red carpet? These days, it's all about loose, casually tossed-back updos with pieces left out in the front. Renée Zellweger has been sporting different versions of the look over the past few days, from her tousled bangs she wore at the September Issue premiere to the soft and feminine look she wore earlier this week. At last night's InStyle Summer Soiree in LA, Ashlee Simpson presented her take, complete with asymmetric, twisty angles. Like the look?

Get some tips for achieving the casual style when you

.

  1. Using a shine-enhancing, medium-hold gel like Kiehl's Clean-Hold Styling Gel ($15), blow dry the hair with a round brush for volume and soft curl.
  2. Create a side part in the front, leaving all of the hair from the back of the ear to the front of the hairline out. Sweep the hair behind the lighter side of the part towards the opposite, heavier side. Secure the hair by creating a loose ponytail with an elastic band, using bobby pins to anchor where needed.
  3. Tuck and pin some of the loose ends of the ponytail under the band. Then, twist and pin some of the other loose ends for a tousled effect.
  4. Next, take a few chunky pieces from the front sections of the hair and twist them back into the ponytail. Secure with bobby pins. Finish off by loosely curling the remaining pieces in the front for a bohemian look.

Sometime I think I'm the only one out there that likes Ashlee! I get tons of style inspiration from her.

i don't get why the fact that a certain person wore their hair one way one time would prevent you from also wearing yours that way. and her eye looks fine. it's definitely not "obviously" lazy. even if it was, why "should" she?

I hate most intepretations of this trend, especially the loose side braid, but this looks cute and comfortable. I'd love it even more if it weren't Ashlee Simpson wearing it...
