More Style Ideas for Long Hair



Choose Bold Accessories

Decorate long locks with an eye-catching headband. The multiband gold version Nicole Richie is wearing here is from her House of Harlow 1960 collection.












Bump Up the Back

Always a trendsetter, Sienna Miller works a creative half-updo. Part your hair down the middle and leave the front section loose and wavy. Tease the hair at your crown, then make a ponytail at the nape of your neck.











Add Major Shine

For hair that gleams like Emily Blunt’s, apply a light shine serum before and after blow-drying. Use a spray version if you have fine hair and be sure to keep the stuff away from your roots.











Fake a Faux Bob

Selena Gomez’s style is easier than it looks: Simply pull sections of your strands up into itself and pin it with bobby pins underneath your hair. This creates that I-may-or-may-not-have-cut-my-hair effect.











Go for a Ponytail

You can’t go wrong with a sleek ponytail, like Malin Akerman’s. To make it casual-looking, part your hair and then tightly pull it back, using a boar bristle brush to knock out any bumps for a smooth finish. Spray it with hairspray once you’re done polishing up your ‘do to keep flyaways at bay.


Emily Blunt takes on sci-fi with Cruise

Emily Blunt is in demand at the moment. And it doesn’t look to be slowing down. She is in talks to join the cast of sci-fi film All You Need is Kill, opposite Tom Cruise.

Yes, Emily is certainly not going to have time to Play on or attend the cinema herself, because she’s too busy gracing us with her delightful presence on screen. She stars in recent release Salmon Fishing in the Yemen opposite Ewan McGregor and Kristin Scott Thomas, and her comedy with Jason Segel, The Five Year Engagement is showing at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The English rose has said in the past that she was looking to tackle a sci-fi or super hero film, so long as the female character had some substance. It looks like she might have found her next project.

“Usually the female parts in a superhero film feel thankless. She’s the pill girlfriend while the guys are whizzing around saving the world,” Blunt has said in the past.

All You Need is Kill will follow a soldier fighting a war against aliens, when he is forced to re-live his last day alive over and over. Through re-living the experiences, he gains skill in tackling the challenges he faces. Emily will play a soldier fighting alongside him.

The script was originally written by Dante Harper, before it was re-worked by Joby Harold. He is also executive producing the project.

It sounds interesting, and as for Emily’s career, it has certainly been a mixed bag.

“I’m open to any kind of genre if the part is great and fun and different and a challenge in some way,” she said. “I would love to do a comic-book movie or a science-fiction film that would scare the life out of me.”
