Solange Knowles

The Fun Bun

This look can be worn on a good or bad hair day. Think of it as a sassy spin to the classic ballerina bun … even Solange rocked it with braids. The key is to place it high on your head, and the messier the look the better. If messy isn’t for you, then use small bobby pins the same color as your hair to control any loose strands or fly aways.

Rihanna

Perfectly wrapped with a bow

Rihanna has made hair bows cool again. Once stamped as a childish staple, the hair bow has been revamped in the form of a super cute headband. You can use anything from a silk scarf, ribbon or even tulle as Ri-Ri did to create your own custom-sized bow perfect. Channel your inner Minnie Mouse, and be a kid again.

Garcelle Beauvais

Statement-making earrings

This is one of the easiest ways to add a va-va-voom effect to your hair, whether big curls, bone straight, natural or wavy, statement earrings make … well … a statement! Try the hottest trend right now — a big pair of colorful, feather earrings. For an even edgier spin, wear your feather earring in one ear only.

Zoe Saldana

Beach Braids

This style can work on both long and short hair. Grab two small sections of your hair from your temples and braid them into a loose braid. Secure together in the back of your hair with a small hair tie or bobby pin. Trés Chic.

Eva Marcille

Turban

Thank June Ambrose for bringing the turban alive. Celebrities like Eva Marcille and Solange Knowles both been spotted numerous times in this staple headpiece. Confused on how to wrap it? June Ambrose assists by giving an easy pic by pic tutorial.
