Beautiful and sexy with a heart of gold, Angelina Jolie is adored by men, women and children across the world. From her many captivating roles to endless charitable contributions, Jolie is not only an incredible actress and pop culture sensation, but also a style icon.
Luckily for the masses of average every day ladies, many of Jolie’s most breathtaking looks can be imitated quite easily. Let’s explore some of this leading lady’s simplest elegant hairstyles:
Long Layers with Volume
Great for gals with long locks looking for a change that isn’t too drastic, the long layers with volume look is best achieved by those with hair that reaches at least the shoulders in length.
Styling this classic look is a cinch. Begin by applying a smoothing volumizing product to damp hair (try Nick Chavez’s Plump ‘N Thick Leave-in Thickening Mist). Blow hair dry on low heat, gently working a large round brush through small sections as hair dries, focusing on the top and side sections. Once dry, curl the ends of hair under with a two inch curling iron. Part hair to the far left side and top off with hairspray.
Softly Swept Bun
Appropriate for even the most formal of occasions while remaining fun and friendly, the softly swept bun has been rocked by Jolie for a number of years. This look is best achieved by those with hair that reaches at least the shoulders in length.
Styling is painless. Begin by applying a smoothing shine serum to towel-dried hair. Blow hair dry on low heat, gently working a large round brush through small sections. Once dry, place medium-sized sections into two inch hot rollers. Allow rollers to remain in hair for at least one hour. Remove rollers and run fingers through small sections. Take the top section of hair into hands, and begin twisting approximately six inches back. Push forward to create a bump and place two bobby pins in twisted area. Place hair into a low yet firm bun. Top off with hairspray.
Short and Sculpted Waves
If the edgy 1920’s inspired Angelina Jolie look is more your style, the short and sculpted waves ‘do may be for you. This style is best achieved by those with hair that reaches roughly the chin in length.
Styling this alternative elegant look is easy. Begin by parting hair to the left side, slightly off-center. Next, apply a wave boosting texturizing product to towel-dried hair (try Redken’s Elastic Works gel) along with your favorite pomade product. Allow hair to air dry, gently working fingers through small sections as it dries, focusing of the ends.
