14 Yvonne Strahovski’s Choppy Cut

Yvonne Strahovski’s Choppy Cut Not quite a beach wave and not quite a choppy bob, Yvonne’s richly textured almost shoulder length style certainly looks like something a girl would want to wear this summer! Stylists especially like her long, side-swept fringe pointing out how this style not only looks good on all face shapes but is extremely easy to style as well, requiring only a texturizing spray of choice and fingers to keep it looking fabulous on daily basis.

15 Christina Ricci’s Cleopatra Style

Christina Ricci’s Cleopatra Style Full bunt bangs and sleek shoulder length hair definitely does Christina justice framing her heart-shaped face and making her eyes pop! This chic, polished look has managed to gain a lot of high profile fans quickly yet no celebrity so far has been able to pull it off as good as this gorgeous actress.

17 Salma Hayek’s Ombre Waves

Salma Hayek’s Ombre Waves But my list of best celebrity hairstyles 2012 just wouldn’t be complete without at least one example of how much good ombre can do for person’s looks and Salma’s Golden Globe Awards hair is the perfect one for taking notes! Don’t you think those new caramel ends compliment her complexion and dark hair perfectly?

19 Jessica Alba’s Side Swept Curls

Jessica Alba’s Side Swept Curls Jessica Alba or Jessica Rabbit – this year’s MET Gala made it impossible to tell! Showcasing an array of fantastic styles worthy of every possible list of best celebrity hairstyles 2012 ever to be made, this glam event did have a few stars that shone brighter than others and Jessica was, in my opinion, one of them! Her luxurious waves were polished to perfection and swept to the side to compliment deep red lips, and a gold gown worthy of a diva.

20 Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Side Ponytail

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Side Ponytail Side swept, voluminous, with just a bit of curl at the end – Jenny’s stylist certainly knows a great recipe for a glamorous low ponytail! Now, I know a ponytail doesn’t really seem like much but the funny thing is that celebrities have gone mad about them this year forcing their stylists to jump through hoops trying to come up with one magazines would proudly name the best celebrity hairstyle in 2012. And with it’s perfect dose of luster, curl and body as well as side-swept bangs to match, Hewitt’s pony sure looks like a winner!
