The “Braids and Pixie” Effect: Best Celebrity Hairstyle Trends For 2011

As the clock ticks away to another year and a “new” beginning, we turn our attention to all that celeb buzz that went on in 2011 –especially when it comes to one of our obsessions–hair.  2011 rocked it like Beyonce, especially in the department of  hair trends.

There were some good styles, no doubt, and some sightly below “C” grade. The celeb hair trends spanned from the slightly more elaborate runway look to the everyday.  But we saw two distinct hair trends rock the boat in 2011…take a peek below:

BRAIDS

Braids went from minimal to extravagant and were seen everywhere from award shows to the Met Ball.

Other stars, like Beyonce rocked the more classic braid.  Low, loose and off to one side, her look was romantic yet fashion forward.

  1. LOVE the variety here! I own 3 kid’s hair salons in NYC, and recently wrote a how-to book for children’s hairstyles, however the tips apply to women too. Incidentally, Wired.com just posted a piece where my book was recommended as a holiday gift for Lady Gaga! So if you’re looking for some new ideas & inspiration for your own hair, have a look: http://www.cozyscutsforkids.com/blog/index.php/book/
