There's no denying that Cate Blanchett is one of the world's most beautiful woman. The Australian actress, who is also the face of luxury skincare brand, SK-II, has skin that we would maybe (probably) kill for and with a face like hers, it would be easy for her to just keep doing the same pretty thang.

Whether it's pulled back into a cute ponytail, cropped real close, in a polite '50s bob or pulled back into a fierce '70s quiff, this beauty always gets it right.

From party hopping to gift shopping, Summer is a paradox. On the one hand, it can be the most joyous time of the year, but on the other, it can be laden with stressful moments.

With her seriously spunky hairstyle, peachy cheeks, and oxblood lips, Julianne Hough hit a beauty home run at Elle's Women in Hollywood Celebration last night. Matte, peachy eye shadow and blush were the perfect complements to her intensely pigmented crimson lipstick. But the real masterpiece was her elaborate twisted up 'do, proving that blunt-cut ladies can still sport an elaborate braid.
To re-create the stylish coiffure, start by weaving a loose, tousled plait beginning at the center of your forehead working backwards. After tying it off, tease the crown, slick the sides, and pin the back into a makeshift bun. The result is a mussy but glamorous up 'do that showcases your braid. Top off with bold, bright makeup à la Julianne, and you have an angelic beauty ensemble.

"You don't really have to fuss with it because that line, where it falls, is the style itself. You can wash and go with most hair types and it still looks good," explains Alberto VO5 hair expert Chris Lospalluto. The chic cut, which has been spotted on many stars, including Alexa Chung.

Call us vain, but every time we exercise we always struggle with how bad our hair looks. Lycra headbands never look as chic as they do on Sonia Rykiel models and ponytails are just so high school gym class. So what's a girl to do? Braid. That's what we've learnt from this beautiful spread in Vogue Paris. James Pecis braided Edita Vilkeviciute's hair before she got to throwing some punches in front of Lachlan Bailey's lens for the beauty pages of the April issue. And if two cornrow-style braids aren't your thing, try a headband braid to keep your hair from your forehead.
