From her days on Seventh Heaven to her recent nuptials to Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel has grown up right before our eyes, and we can't get enough of her casual yet classic beauty. Jessica generally sticks to the girl-next-door beauty mantra, but she is always changing up her hair colour. To celebrate her birthday, we're taking a look back at her many colour combinations from honey blonde to jet black.
To re-create her casual coif, wrap hair around a one-inch barrel iron for sleek yet tousled strands. Jessica pinned back her blunt bangs by creating a middle part then securing with bobby pins; this sleek touch around her face helped to dress up the style. To get her makeup look, use a navy blue shadow all over your eyelids for a subtle smoky effect. Then, add a silver accent hue like Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Madison Avenue ($38) in the inner corners. Jessica's simple style can complement any elegant ensemble for your next black-tie party season event.
A full-on fringe is a fashionable way to update your beauty look. For a while now, fringes were predominantly long and wispy, often pushed to the side, but this Spring, a number of stars have been wearing them just above, or on, the brow line. Jessica Biel's subtly teeters in length to complement her tousled waves, while Bella Heathcote's tapered variety frames her face beautifully. Zooey Deschanel opts for a teensy bit longer on the sides than it is in the middle. And the best part about this kiss-the-brow style? It frames your eyes perfectly, letting them stand out and steal the show with minimal effort required.
Wonky weather patterns, sleepless nights of tossing and turning, or simple lack of time can all contribute to less-than-stellar hair days. But before you default to a topknot, bun, or ponytail, let your slightly askew texture work to your advantage. Learn three cute fixer-upper looks now.
Jessica Biel showed us how to do a fringe right, at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year, so we weren't surprised when she rocked it again at the ESPY Awards this week. Pushed to the side, she looked darling with a voluminous high ponytail. Supermodel Nicole Trunfio looked very fresh in a bright lip at a Cinema Society event in New York, and our favourite beauty queen Miranda Kerr looked sleek and polished in an office-ready ponytail on the streets of New York.
