June 20, 2018 | Chiara R

“Bend… And SNAP!”

Legally Blonde 3 is in the making, and we cannot contain our excitement! 15 years ago, Elle Woods showed young girls how important it is to stay true to them and to be confident.

Elle Woods is also a hair and beauty inspiration – not only is her signature color PINK, but did you know that we see her in 40+ different hairstyles in only the first Legally Blonde movie?

We chose our 3 favorite Elle-Woods-Hairstyles and shared with you how you can recreate these looks at home! “What, like it’s hard?”

Elle Woods really kills it in Legally Blonde, in every aspect.

Her outfits are perfection, every hairstyle is unique and her ambition makes us feel like we can conquer the world! Let’s not forget what helped her win the case: her extensive knowledge in hair-care.

“The rules of hair care are simple and finite. Any Cosmo girl would have known.”

The key to channeling your inner Elle Woods is to do your hair like her – here’s how…

 

Elle’s Curly Ponytail

What You’ll Need: A hair tie, Salon Club’s Paddle BrushVerdict’s Professional 32MM Ceramic Clip Curling Iron, Lakme’s Hard Xtreme Hold Spray

You might recognize this iconic hairstyle from when Elle had her first day at Harvard! She wanted to still be her usual fashionable self, but achieve a professional and serious look at the same time – Elle Woods’ style. 

To get your First-Day-At-Harvard do, begin by gathering all your hair into a high ponytail on the crown of your head.  Next, pull two small sections of hair out from the front of your natural part, then secure the rest of your hair with a hair tie. With Verdict’s Professional 32MM Ceramic Clip Curling Iron, curl your ponytail in 7 sections. If you have thinner hair, about 4 sections should be enough. After curling your ponytail, move on to the two small sections near your face; in curling these strands, make sure you curl your hair away from your face, and allow all the curls to cool for five minutes. Finally, using Salon Club’s Paddle Brush, brush ONLY the ponytail curls – not the curls near your face. With Lakme’s Hard Xtreme Hold Spray, seal in your bouncy hairstyle and head over to Harvard!

 

Elle’s Luscious Loose Curls

What You’ll Need: KeraStraight Heat Protection SprayHair Treats’ IonthorityDannyCo’s Cushion BrushHair Forensic’s Ceramic Digital Clip Curling Iron 32MmPegasus’ Teasing Tail Comb, Lakme’s Master Care OilCHI’s Magnified Volume Finishing Hairspray

Elle’s hair is really hair-goals throughout the entire Legally Blonde movie; you might recognize these voluminous loose curls from when she was in trial! This hairstyle is always a fabulous go-to and super easy to recreate! 

After letting 75% of your hair dry naturally, because of the heat tools used for this style, spray KeraStraight’s Heat Protection Spray throughout your damp hair. With the Ionthority Hair Dryer, dry your hair until completely dry and switch to the “cold” temperature to give your hair a shiny finish! Create a bun at the top of your head and secure it with a hair clip. Apply an additional mist of KeraStraight’s Heat Protection Spray to the bottom portion and brush your hair using DannyCo’s Cushion Brush. Next, take a 2 inch section of hair and spray CHI’s Magnified Volume Finishing Hairspray to help hold the curl for a longer period of time.

Begin curling your hair, using Hair Forensic’s Ceramic Digital Clip Curling Iron (32Mm). Take out the hair from the top bun and brush out any tangles; with Pegasus’ Teasing Tail Comb, tease the hair to give it extra volume. Separate your hair in 2 parts and curl each part away from your face. Apply one pump of Lakme’s Master Care Oil to nourish and moisturize the hair, before finishing off with spraying CHI’s Magnified Volume Finishing Hairspray.

 

Elle’s Half-Up, Half-Down Look

What You’ll Need: Y.S. Park’s Tortoise Wood Air Vent Cushion BrushY.S. Park’s Long Tail Fine Teeth CombProtect Ion’s Protection Spray

We love the half-up, half-down hairstyle because it’s worn throughout a pivotal moment for Elle; she’s seen with this look when she moves into the Harvard housing – while dressed all in pink, of course. First, use Y.S. Park’s Tortoise Wood Air Vent Cushion Brush to brush out your hair. With Y.S. Park’s Long Tail Fine Teeth Comb, using the long tail, separate the section of hair in your crown area. Use the comb’s fine teeth; tease the hair by gently brushing the hair towards your scalp. Use Protect Ion’s Protection Spray to smooth the sectioned-off hair into a high ponytail. It’s that easy!

All you need is a pair of those infamous pink shades…
