7 No-Fuss Hairstyles

Summer is rounding the final stretch and that means humidity, scorching temperatures, and unruly hair. And while some of us wear our ‘dos close and cropped and in turn, beat this late season heat, there are still plenty of us with long, luscious locks contemplating very, very short haircuts. But hold that thought, damsel in distress, because Self magazine is giving you 7 No-Fuss Hairstyles, one for each day of the week. Keep it tame on Mondays with beachy waves, spice up Thursday with a sleek and easy blowout, and finish your week with Sunday’s low bun. And even though these are great tips for keeping your fresh summer look even on the hottest of days, all of these suggestions work great year round! Now that’s style, sister.

4th of July Firework

I apologize I didn't get this up for the 4th of July things have been busy as most of you experience too!
The state we live in celebrates the 24th of July much like the 4th of July which I forget that other states don't celebrate.  

This style was so simple and she turned out to be the most patriotic hair around our town.
All I did was make a poof then put her hair into pigtails (since she doesn't have much hair this was the easiest)
I went to our local dollar store and found a patriotic paper weight that had the strings below 
and stars attached to a metal wire wrapped in red white and blue. 
I folded the long strands of red white and blue over so they weren't so long and secured them with an elastic.
Right before we went out for the night we wrapped bracelet glow sticks in between each pigtail.  Since the bracelets were much heavier than her hair we added a 3 on across the top of her head.

Jennifer Lopez leaves Milk Studio Hollywood 7.17.11

The whole gossip world is still buzzing about Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's divorce, but that’s not stopping J. Lo from keeping up with her career.

The “On The Floor” babe was spotted leaving a photo shoot at MILK studios in Hollywood yesterday (July 17) following a six-hour photo shoot during which she enjoyed a medium rare steak for lunch.

An insider told press that Lopez and Anthony’s decision to split isn’t too surprising. “I know Marc’s short fuse and explosive temper has been an issue. I’ve always thought Jennifer had learned to deal with that. After all, it’s not like she’s not one to handle herself in big verbal battle. She can let loose herself. … I’ve seen her launch some pretty strong screaming matches!”

Meanwhile, a source close to the couple indicated that there were a few folks in the Lopez/Anthony inner circle who knew ahead of time that they were getting divorced.

Control issues for J. Lo

Despite reports that Jennifer Lopez is "devastated" by her split with Marc Anthony, J. Lo's confidantes say her soon-to-be-ex-husband was "very controlling" behind the scenes of her "American Idol" career. Friends of the couple say Anthony was known to turn up on the "Idol" set and make demands on her behalf. Meantime, according to unconfirmed reports, the split may have been the result of an affair J. Lo allegedly had with William Levy, dubbed "The Brad Pitt of Cuba." But Levy flatly denied that he and Lopez had a relationship while filming her music video for "I'm Into You" in April. Lopez's rep declined to comment.
One source tells the publication, "She (Jennifer) tried everything she could to make it work. They went to marriage counselling. She was patient and loving and did everything he wanted her to... She exhausted all the possibilities."
Jennifer and Marc were married for seven years, and have two children.


Life & Style exclusive: the kids are with J.Lo

If there are two people who can comfort Jennifer Lopez through her split with husband Marc Anthony, it's the couple's children. Life & Style has learned that their twins, Max and Emme, both 3, will be with Jennifer in Atlanta while she films What to Expect When You're Expecting. "The nannies and her mom will stay with Jennifer and the children in the hotel while she films," an insider tells Life & Style.

As Life & Style reported yesterday, Marc opened up about his split with Jennifer, whom he was married to for seven years, during his concert in Bogota, Colombia, on July 16. "Rumor has it I'm single now," Marc said during the concert.

The couple announced their separation just three days ago. On Sunday, Jennifer was seen leaving a six-hour photo shoot. It was the first time she'd been spotted since the split announcement. "She's burying herself in work," another insider tells Life & Style. "It's the one thing that's helping to keep her mind off the current situation."


EXCLUSIVE: Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez On What Their Marriage Was Like

Just before announcing their split after seven years of marriage, high profile couple Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony sat down with Latina magazine, in a now somewhat ironic interview, to chat about family life and making a marriage work.

Jennifer, on making time for family: “You can have tons of success and all of that is so great and I would never downplay that; I love the fact that I get to do everything that I do; but my biggest joys in life are being able to be a good mom, the moments when I can say, ‘Ah, I was a good mom right there! I did something right for my kids. Or you know what, I’m a good wife.’”

Marc, on what it’s like at home: “Nothing floats and there are no lights or fans or smoke. Jennifer loves to cook, loves family time, loves when we eat together – all of us, the kids [3-year-old twins, Max and Emme], just everybody. The house is awfully loud with the pitter-patter of their feet. It’s very Puerto Rican – salsa playing in the background and kids in the pool. ‘Max, watch out!’ You know, just real normal stuff when we’re home.”

Jennifer, on making a marriage work: “I mean it’s about time, it’s about making the time for each other; it’s about being there for each other for the good moments and for the bad moments, you know, it’s just about caring. To say how to care for somebody is a long list, but that’s really what it takes.”

Jennifer Lopez Struggled To Cope With Marc Anthony’s Control Issues

(Phillip Bloch and JLo at Jennifer's SweetFace Fashion Show in 2004)

More details continue to surface on Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony‘s divorce and the potential reasons for their split. JLo and Marc were married for seven years in what seemed to be a happy union with a few glitches – as is expected in any marriage. The couple has two children, twins Emme and Max and a few joint business ventures.

On Saturday, Jennifer’s stylist Phillip Bloch has revealed to the Daily some new details on the split,

“She fought to make it work for the sake of the children. She desperately did not want a third divorce.”

He continued, “This is not a surprise. Marc is very controlling. In the beginning she liked that because he stood up to her, and in the early days he was very much in love with her and she was with him.”

In their joint released statement, the couple stated they reached “an amicable conclusion on all matters.”

In June 2004 Marc, now 42, finalized his divorce from former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres.

Four days later he and Jennifer married at Jennifer’s home in Beverly Hills. They presented themselves as a fairytale couple. But soon after the birth of the twins, the couple are said to have begun to argue.

"Jennifer will be performing in the Ukraine. Terms of the agreement can not be confirmed," the rep told E! News exclusively.

Jennifer Lopez Will Reportedly Go Topless - J.Lo's Racy New Roles

Jennifer Lopez has yet to sign on for another season, but American Idol's sweetest judge is about to shake up her good-girl image in two red-hot new movies. Life & Style has learned that the 41-year-old mother of twins -- who hasn't bared her body in a film since Out of Sight in 1998 -- is set to go topless in the movie adaptation of the popular pregnancy book What To Expect When You're Expecting.

According to the script, Jennifer's character, Holly, bares her breasts to help convince her hubby, played by hunky Rodrigo Santoro, that they need to adopt a baby boy. The sultry star will also be sexing it up with Transporter star Jason Statham, 43, in the crime flick Parker. According to the script exclusively obtained by Life & Style, Jennifer plays Leslie, a real-estate agent who strips down in front of Statham.


Rolls to Side Ponytail

This is a quick and simple style. 
Start with a small roll.  Rolling her bangs back but leave a couple small amounts of hair around her face (these will be curled in ringlets)
Then roll all the hair starting on the opposite side.  Roll the hair into a side ponytail. 
Secure all the hair on the side with an elastic.
I then put ringlets in the hair around her face and the ponytail along with wrapping the ponytail with her own hair.

Is Jennifer Lopez Finally Saying "Yes!" To Another Season of American Idol?

Jennifer Lopez is coming back to American Idol.

A little over a week ago, it was announced that Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson had signed deals for more time at the judges' table. Now, I'm being told…

Lopez has also agreed to return. A source tells me exclusively an announcement could be coming any day now.

The singer-actress said in an interview about a month ago that she hadn't decided what she was going to do.

"I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it," the first year judge told Scott Mills of BBC 1, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year and we're not really at the breaking point of 'You have to make a decision right now!' I'm just really enjoying the time of just waiting and seeing."

Lopez will be sitting at the Fox table at BAFTA's Brits to Watch gala tonight. She was invited by Fox television boss Peter Rice.

I'm told she has also surprised her mom, Lupe, by flying her to L.A. to attend the BAFTA event with her.

As royal watchers already know, Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to attend the gala. Other celebs include Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Kristen Chenoweth, Derek Hough, Ed Westwick, Stephen Moyer, Ed Helms, Jonah Hill and many more.
