How To Create A Celebrity Hair Style Like Katie Holmes

Mar 1, 2008
Katie Holmes has had an interesting career, beginning with her first major role in 1997s Ice Storm. After that, her audition tape was sent to the producers of Dawsons Creek, winning her the role of girl next door Joey Potter from 1998 to 2003.

During her Dawson days, Katies signature style was brunette and worn just below her shoulders, alternating between loose waves, curls, and straight looks, with no bangs. This was a look that was often copied by many teenaged girls during this time period.

After Dawsonss Creek ended, Katie experimented with darker hair colors and loose curls and waves. In her first significant film role, Katie played the part of college student Katie Burke in Abandon, and in 2004, starred as the title character in First Daughter. In both of these films, Katie showcased her new look, particularly with the style she wore to the Oceans

Twelve premiere in Los Angeles in December of 2004. Little did Katie know that her hairstyle would soon take backstage to her very public romance with Tom Cruise in 2005, after Toms famous Oprah couch jumping appearance.

By December of the following year, Katie was pregnant with the couple's daughter, Suri, and was often spotted wearing long, loose, cascading curls in a radical departure from her Joey Potter days.

After the birth of her daughter, Katie opted for a short bob reminiscent of Victoria Beckhams, i.e. Posh Spicess look, dubbed the Pob by British media, and consisting of a razored A line bob with tapered ends. In August of 2007,

Katie beat out fellow actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Posh Spice for Life and Style Magaziness Hot Hair award. Since becoming Mrs. Tom Cruise, Katie has refined her signature look, adding espresso highlights and cute, sideswept bangs.

To recreate these slick looks, ask your salon stylist to give you a slightly forward angling bob with eyebrow skimming bangs and a side part. At home, shampoo and condition with products designed for your hair type, and gently towel blot your hair, avoiding vigorous rubbing, which can lead to frizz.

Apply a leave in conditioning product to the palms of your hands, and work it into the damp strands of your hair. Next, apply a tennis ball sized amount of mousse, distributing evenly throughout.

Blow dry hair using a round brush, creating a side part. Spray in a leave in shine serum and a soft hold hairspray to finish.
