We’ve all seen low-riding buns and French twists used for a classy evening look. And having the density and length to allow these styles to hang loosely adds a dramatic touch. Ellen Pompeo‘s stylist decided to really stretch this concept into a modern takeover by working the majority of Ellen’s hair under and has either curled it tightly in big, loose curls or perhaps pinned it up in a similar manner. This style is also accented, as many updos are, with loose tendrils left out in the front. Many of these are hanging free with come S-curl formation giving it a ‘messy’ look that is unique indeed.
