In a style made popular by Barbara Eden, Carol Alt proves to us how even a ponytail can be used for formal wear.  When your hair is really long, a fun thing to do is to band it on top of your head and style it from there.   Long, sweeping bangs adorn her face while her ponytail more than likely ends in feminine curls.  Certainly a fun style to ring in 2007!

TV star, Elisabeth Rohm, dominates the red carpet with her formal hairstyle fit for center stage.  As many of today’s looks, the heavy, grown-out bangs are parted off in an oval or rectangular shape, then combed straight over with a flat, close-to-the-head look.   The rest of the hair is brushed straight and brought up into a "messy" style in the back, noticeable from the telltale ‘feather look’ from the ends.  Hair is trendy, in an updo and more importantly, ready to take on a night of dancing.

With the new year upon us, many are looking for a new look.  No matter if you are searching  for your resolution or simply to wear out on New Year’s Eve, such as this formal look worn by Katie Cassidy, we have the look for you.  This is an easy to do style that first needs the decision for the part.  Here, only the front section is parted off from the extreme left side with the part being diagonal. The rest of the hair is combed back and pinned up.  This could be anything from a sleek French twist to a quick twist and clip..  There are many fancy hair clips available to dress up even the "messy" looks.  Loose tendrils are pulled out on the heavy side of the front as well as a few on the opposite side.  Ringlets could be from a curling iron or done in twists, sprayed with hair spray; then dried with a blow dryer and tousled.

Up Do or Down on New Year’s

Kate Mara

Have short hair and desire a nice formal look?  Kate Mara shows us a half-up, half-down look that is both easy and cute.  Always keep the finished look in mind when blow drying.  Apply product, dry as desired, in this case all back and around to the one side.   Curl the down side under, or up if you prefer, spray and you’re done.   This style would be difficult for fine hair and almost impossible for layered.   You could adorn with jeweled hairpins or sparkling, dangly earrings.
