I must try this look...a hundred bobby pins, hairspray, and a few helping hands, and I'm set :) Love it with dramatic, swooping eyeliner and soft lips. Pretty!

As a habitual wearer of the Katherine Hepburn style "messy updo" knot, and a French-twist aficionado, I do love my long hair up. But for this number I want and need a tutorial ! Very elegant and sexy.

What a fabulous look. I agree with Sarah that it would take TON of bobby pins and hair spray but it the end it would be worth it. May have to keep this in mind when I'm getting ready for all my holiday parties.

Okay, so I finally have long enough hair... all I need is that girl's tiny waist and I'll be set to replicate that image!

Gorgeous- that's a look to aspire to.

I think I love every bit of these photo's. The top, the hairdo. I wonder if I could put my hair up like that. I'm definitely going to try!
