Long hair is always in style. This year celebrities are extending the definition of long by donning hair styles nearly to the waist. When it comes to long hair styles, it may seem there are very few to choose from, but the red carpet divas of the world show us that is a myth.
Carrie Underwood – Southern Belle
Carrie Underwood, country music and pop star, has changed faster than Cinderella at midnight on the night of the ball. Her newest locks are the sheer definition of a beautiful long hair style for 2011. Carrie Underwood carefully straightens the front bangs and tucks them behind the ear. The length of her hair is curled with gentle ringlets while the sides are pulled back from the face with a soft barrette in the back. Stunning.
Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow – Rocking Extreme Straight
Gwyneth Paltrow could shave her head and still be considered one of the most striking women on the planet. Instead of taking that extreme, she chooses to straighten her hair to perfection. There are no layers in the Gwyneth Paltrow top long hairstyle for 2011, but Reese Witherspoon is another story.
Take the Gwyneth Paltrow and cut some bangs and you have Reese Witherspoon. There are also some long layers around Reese Witherspoon’s face that are lacking in the Gwyneth Paltrow version.
Vanessa Hudgens – Goldie Locks Without the Goldie
Movie star and teen favorite Vanessa Hudgens has everything going for her, including one of the top 5 long hair styles of 2011. She chooses to part her dark locks down the middle with natural curls that go on forever. There are no ringlets in this style, but rather soft curls that appear a bit weighed down by the weight of her hair.
Gisele Bundchen dons the same general hairstyle as Vanessa Hudgens, but with Gisele the Goldie stays in the locks.
Kristin Cavallari – Back and to the Side Please
Actress Kristin Cavallari can be seen on the red carpet with one of the hottest long hair style trends of 2011. Her hair is swept off to the side with bangs and layers cut to frame the face. This style can be work pulled back and fastened or left over the opposite shoulder, depending on the event.
Kristen Stewart – Whatever Style (It’s Hot and Cold and Edward Loves it!)
Kristen Stewart, star of Twilight and The Runaways, offers a classic “whatever” style as the final top 5 long hair style of 2011. Bella, as many have come to call Kristen Stewart, gets up in the morning and tosses her hair around before heading out for the day, or so it looks. There are probably hours spent creating the perfect, “I don’t care!” look and Edward loves her for it.
