Celebrity Hairstyle Challenge Day 1: Copy Emily Blunt's Updo

Like most women, I wear my hair exactly the same way. Every. Single. Day. It can be boring, unoriginal and frankly, uninspiring. I go from wearing my hair down with loose waves to securing it back in a low ponytail come midday. It's the routine. And I rarely change it.

That's why I'm challenging myself, for the next three days, to pick a celebrity hairstyle each morning and try to copy it. Well, to the best of my ability anyway.

Today I tried to recreate a French-braided headband a la Gwen Stefani, but failed miserably because -- sigh -- I can't French braid. (But I vow to learn how and will show you soon enough.) So right before I walked out the door to head to the office, I saw this picture of Emily Blunt with her hair pulled back and topped with a jeweled headband, and thought, "I can definitely do that."

It was really simple -- I slicked my hair back into a low ponytail, twisted it into a bun and pinned it into place. Then, I chose a red headband (Blunt's is way snazzier, but my workplace is a tad less formal than a red carpet event) and slipped it on. Voila!

What do you think? Any suggestions on the celebrity hairstyle I should recreate tomorrow or later in the week? I'm all ears.
And the survey says...

    I like Emily Blunt's hair, but her headband is way pretty, and I don't like the updo with headband look unless the headband is really awesome.

    if I was going to do this I would at least try and get a hair band close to the one she's wearing.
