Banishing Bad Hair Days since 1997!™

Audrey Hepburn Hair

Actress Audrey Hepburn was a hair, beauty and fashion icon.  Although she wasn't the first celebrity to wear a French Twist hairstyle, superstar Audrey put her own personal touch on the French Twist hairstyle when she wore it in the hit movie Breakfast At Tiffany's.

After Audrey showcased her hair twist it became and instant classic which has become a favorite of multiple generations of actresses who have followed her to the screen.

Besides a traditional Hollywood Glam hairstyle, I think it's fair to say that a Audrey Hepburn French Twist hairstyle is one of the most classic updos that anyone can wear for any type of hairstyle event from a very formal wedding to a deconstructed French Twist worn to a more casual party or event.

When I was in cosmo school we had a series of updo contests.  I am proud to report that I won a contest combining the base of a traditional French Twist with a few curls gently pulled out from the sides and pinned around the outside.

Needless to say, I am a huge fan of this gorgeous hairstyle which can be modified appropriately to be worn by any type of face shape or hair length.  Clip in temporary extensions can be utilized for short or medium length hair in order to coif a twist.

Eva Mendes Channels Audrey Hepburn

Actress Eva Mendes recently rocked a series of Audrey Hepburnese Twists on Hollywood Red Carpets.

Like Audrey, Eva has beautiful soft chocolate brown tresses with a slight hint of caramel highlights carefully interwoven throughout her crown and around her hairline to add shimmer and softness to her gorgeous face.

Eva channelled Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast At Tiffany's French Twist at the Los Angeles Premiere of 'The Spirit' - on December 17, 2008 in an eye popping splashy canary yellow Bill Blass gown.

Eva's hair twist billowed up from the back of her heavily backcombed crown and was tucked sleekly into the back her head on either side of her ears.  A few strands along the top were lightly finger picked to create a slightly messy look.

The Latin lovely's hair was parted down the front with matching curtains of slightly tousled hair floating softly on either side of her gorgeous face.

Eva's recent Audrey Hepburn hair turn worked spectacularly with her stunning strapless gown.  By wearing her below-the-shoulder length hair swept up off her shoulders, the gorgeous jeweled encrusted top of her Bill Blass gown was highlighted.
