Natalie Portman's Wedding Hair Style

06 April 2009

Natalie's curled chignon is a fresh take on the traditional French twist, kept young and current with a slightly unkempt finish. To recreate:

1. Set hair using medium-sized heated rollers. Leave for about 15 minutes before removing and gently backcomb at the roots to create body. 2. Divide hair into three sections — one at the top in the middle, then one on either side of the head. Pull the side sections back into a low ponytail, leaving the top section free.
3. Encourage the ends of the ponytail to curl naturally, or add a few of your own with tongs if your hair is straight. Then twist upwards into a roll and pin with Kirby grips, letting the ends stick out slightly to achieve that unkempt finish.
4. Softly pin the loose front section of hair back to join the twist, and spritz with a gloss spray. To finish add a splash of sparkle and hide any plain grips with a glittering hair clip like Natalie's.

Wedding Hair Styles

Diane Kruger
Diane's cute plait has a real relaxed, undone-elegance about it — perfect for any boho brides. It's also amazingly quick and easy to do yourself. To recreate:

1. Spritz damp hair with a style constructor spray and roughly blow dry. Then, centre-part hair and retain two large sections at the front on each side to construct into plaits.

2. Avoiding the two front sections, brush the rest of the hair back into a ponytail, securing low at the nape of the neck. Twist the ponytail around your hand and into a looped bun or knot depending on the length of your hair. Secure with grips.

3. Finally, loosely plait the two side sections.

Note: Starting the plait just above the ears like Diane has a softer effect than starting it higher up near your parting, and is far more befitting a blushing bride. Pin the ends of the plait into the bun using grips and secure with a light spritz of hairspray. Ta da! This style is also a perfect way to keep hair away from your face in the heat if you're likely to be getting all hot and flustered on your big day.

Paris Hilton's Sumo Laptop

by geeksugar

For the first time ever I have to give Paris Hilton props. The heiress was spotted carrying her laptop in a pink sumo laptop sleeve while leaving a private acting coach class recently. Why does she deserve kudos?
The Sumo laptop sleeve has long been one of my favorite designs on the market. In fact, last week I even featured it in my bright summery laptop sleeve roundup. The sleeve is $34.99 and allows safe laptop protection. It doesn't have a strap, but it's great for covering your laptop and slipping into a larger purse, carry on or even on its own as Paris is seen using it.
It's made from quilted corduroy and comes in an assortment of sizes (13", 15", and 17"). If you're not a pink person you can get it in black, red, and my personal favorite, green. Enter the promotion code "koloparis" to get 10 percent off any order over $50 now through the end of August.

Cocaine Addiction Treatment not working for Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan may be checking herself into another cocaine addiction treatment center after Tuesday mornings arrest.
Lohan was recently released from a drug rehab facility only two weeks prior to this mornings arrest, when Lindsay’s assistant’s mother reported being chased by Lindsay Lohan. When police arrived on the scene Lohan refused to give a sobriety test but was then later tested at the station. The results showed her blood alcohol level to be between .12 and .13 which is well over the California legal limit.
The star of Mean Girls was booked on two misdemeanor charges of driving on a suspended license and driving under the influence of alcohol. She was also booked on two felony charges of possession of cocaine and transportation of a narcotic. While in jail, authorities found cocaine in Lohan’s pocket.
After posting $25,000 bond Lohan was released at 6:20 am. She is scheduled to ppaer in court on August 24th.
Just last week Lohan turned herself in to Beverly Hills police for driving under the influence back on Memorial Day weekend in which Lindsay was involved in a hit and run crash.
Rumors are now circulating that Lohan will be checking into Betty Ford treatment center
