The Heidi braid trend is still going strong! This week, Adele swapped her trademark retro coiff for a braided headband, and earlier this month Beth Behrs, Ashley Madekwe, and Florence Welch also tried out the style. The look is a fun alternative to the standard ponytail as the temperature rises, and is a genius way to mask second-day strands. To create Behrs’ updo at the premiere of Monsters University in Los Angeles, her hairstylist Aviva Perea began by spritzing Oribe’s Foundation Mist ($23; oribe.com) onto damp hair, then blow-dried the star’s strands using her fingers. A few quick twists using a curling iron added extra movement before Perea misted on Dove’s Dry Shampoo ($5; drugstore.com). “It gave her hair amazing texture, and helped the braids stay in place,” she said. Perea wound four plaits on Behrs’ head, placing two on each side of her head by her ears. “I started each braid with a fish tail and ended with a regular braid for extra texture,” she added. Perea anchored the braids just behind the star’s bangs with bobby pins. Click the photo to get more celeb braid inspiration.
2 Broke Girls actress Beth Behrs turns 27 today! The Lancaster, Pennsylvania native first won us over with her All-American girl next door looks and slightly sardonic charm on the CBS show created by Sex and the City mastermind Michael Patrick King, and she keeps it real when it comes to staying radiant. She relies upon a “statement smile” like this coral color, which she says should be worn with subtle makeup. Click through to read more about how to replicate the birthday girl’s secret to a powerful lip!
Just when we thought wine hues had taken over, Two Broke Girls star Beth Behrs warmed us up with a bold coral hue. ”We wanted to create a bright, sensual lip against a warm healthy glow,” her makeup artist Jamie Greenberg told InStyle.com of the color, which was created by layering two cream lipsticks. Greenberg first applied Mark Lip Click Full Color Lipstick in Cha Cha, then filled in the matte lip with Mark Lip Click Full Color Lipstick in Coral Fixation using a lip brush. To get her saturated pout, Greenberg blotted and reapplied the coral shade. Pick up both shades for $11 each at meetmark.com. Two Broke Girls airs Mondays at 9/8c on CBS.

Beth Behrs constantly receives surprise gifts—from herself! “I order stuff online and then I forget that I ordered it,” the 2 Broke Girls star told us a the PS Arts Bag Lunch benefit in Beverly Hills. “I keep ordering things that are backordered and then I have to wait.

Stars crowded into the Beverly Hilton last night for the second annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards, hosted by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and many of the night’s leading ladies chose summer-friendly blush colors. (Could it have been the thought of critics all around that told them to choose the safe hue?) Celebrity stylist Brad Goreski put together the flesh-tone Paule Ka outfit for Beth Behrs, and added a pop of fuchsia with her lip. “We thought of an Audrey Hepburn type of a look and this pink lipstick and the way this is silhouetted, it kind of reminded us of her,” the Two Broke Girls star told InStyle.com. Other ladies dressed in the pale tones included Best Reality Show Host winner Cat Deeley (in Mulberry), Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland (in Collette Dinnigan), and Best Guest Performer winner Lucy Liu (in Atelier Versace). See what everyone else wore to the ceremony in the gallery.
