Celebrities are never short of a new hairstyle or look to try, and with all different personalities come all different preferences. But there's one hairstyle trend that seems to be impossible to ignore, and with a multitude of stylish stars sweeping aside their locks (or in some cases, chopping them off!), exposing yourself has never been more in vogue. That's right, gone are the days of long locks cascading past both shoulders; nowadays it's all about how much skin can be shown — but only in the most subtle of ways. Whether it's an ear, a neck, a jawline, or a whole décolletage exposed, it's beautiful. January Jones did it perfectly at the 2013 Emmy Awards last week, and before her Diane Kruger and Miranda Kerr led the way. Click through to see all the stars trying this trend, then get sweeping — BYO mismatched earrings or ear cuff!
Week after week, we're inundated with pictures of gorgeous celebrities trying out new beauty trends and hairstyles. This week was no exception, and picking out a top 10 was no mean feat! But when it came down to it, we had to pick which hair and makeup adventures we actually wanted to copy ourselves. And between lovely Lara Bingle's dramatic cat-eye flick, formed to perfection, Jennifer Hawkins' beach-to-bar waves and Frieda Pinto's barely-there lip colour and smoky eye (and more!), we have plenty cool new trends to try. Keen to see them for yourself? Come along!
1. Adir applied Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to damp hair.
2. Then using the arch of the brow as a guide, he created a deep side part.
3. Diane's hair was blown out with a large round brush and tucked behind the ears.
4. To get the two-textured look, Abergel applied Brilliant Glossing Cream ($38) on top of the hair, leaving the ends more voluminous with a spritz of hairspray to finish. 5. Diane's polished hair was accented with starburst earrings and stand out lashes.
Celebrities may be best known for their glamorous red-carpet beauty looks, but they know how to embrace casual styles, too. Whether you're chilling with friends at dinner or hitting the mall to make a few returns, there's something here to inspire. Looking so effortlessly beautiful just got a whole lot easier.

This week, many stars set out to show us exactly how to do the bared-faced look right. Taylor Swift looked stunning at the American Music Awards, mainly because her skin was smooth, evenly-toned and glowing all night — it's the kind of natural look we're always striving to perfect, and we've found a product that lends a helping hand. Hayden Panettiere showed off a punchy coral lip colour that we fell head over heels for (Kate Bosworth's a fan, too!), while Victoria Justice, pictured above, reminded us of the power of a good, highly-pigmented lip gloss. There are even more beauty looks to see (and copy!) so click through the gallery to check them out!
To get her double-reverse roll style, divide hair with a deep side part, then part hair from each ear to the crown, creating two separate sections. Working with the larger section, tease hair from mid-shaft to the roots. Starting at the ends, wrap hair inward and upward over your finger forming a loose cylinder. Pin hair down using bobby pins. Follow the same method on the other side. Finally, spritz your hand with hair spray and smooth away any flyaways. And the look won't be complete without a layer of bright red lipstick à la Diane.
Beauty took a step backwards this week, as many celebs opted for pared-back versions of their beautiful selves. Think bronzed skin, nude lips, natural hair and brows that do all the talking, courtesy of lovely Aussie ladies Rose Byrne and Lara Bingle. Love a bit of colour? Don't you worry! There were a couple of stars out this week sporting sexy lip shades we can't wait to get out hands on — like Kate Bosworth (who we chatted to in Sydney) in rosy coral. And just wait 'til you see the hair! From Kylie to Kate Hudson and Diane Kruger, there are many more celebrities whose beauty looks you'll want to steal, so get clicking and enjoy!
Stunning on the red carpet is one of Diane Kruger's best moves, and at the premiere of Inescapable at the Toronto Film Festival, she upped the ante. Her tight, yet somehow wispy top knot was both glamorous and edgy. Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath, who styled Diane's hair for the premiere, explained that her inspiration was Valentino's Fall 2012 couture show. "We wanted to modernise the look a bit with a soft edge," she said. To achieve the runway-inspired style, Heath started with a cocktail of Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray on Diane's ends and Kérastase Mousse Volumactive on her roots.
After she blew out Diane's hair, she pulled it up into a high ponytail. The trick to this sleek bun is that Heath broke the ponytail into three sections, wrapping them around the base one at a time, securing with pins. She finished with a mist of Frederic Fekkai Sheer Hold Hair Spray. "I chose to leave the hairs around the hairline soft and not slick," she said. "This made the look more red carpet and less runway." And also insanely easy to replicate at home.
At the 2011 Cannes Film Festival premiere for Sleeping Beauty, Diane Kruger debuted what may be her most innovative hairstyle yet: a textured, tousled plait that was part fishtail braid, part pin curl. We've already praised her gorgeous makeup look, so now it's time to focus on the hair! To get the look, start by using a texturizing product such as ghd fat hair lotion ($35). Leave out sections of hair in both the front and on top, braiding the back into a loose side braid. Allow some of the front layers to hang freely, incorporating a few of these strands into braids that flow to the back, using bobby pins conspicuously to secure. Meanwhile, bring sections of hair from the top into the back of the style, braiding some pieces, while randomly bobby-pinning others to create a free-form shape. See Diane's look from all angle now.
