Best Carrie Hairstyles from Sex and the City
Even though it’s been a while since we experienced the Sex and the City TV show and the two hit movies, Carrie’s creative and inspiring hairstyles never get old. Played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Carrie is a chic New York writer whose hairstyles mature with her as we follow her dating escapes and eventual marriage. Some of her best hairstyles appeared in the second movie, Sex and the City 2. Though SJP naturally has thick, wavy hair, her stylist did use extensions and hair pieces such as tape hair extensions to amplify Carrie’s effortless locks. Here are a few favorite Carrie styles:
In the TV show, Carrie often sported signature tight or wild curls, but in the movies her style becomes more sophisticated. We see more long, sleek waves and glamorous volume. This look uses extensions for volume and lift. Some clip-in extensions should do the trick. The dark natural blonde and soft makeup complete this must-have look which is versatile for every-day or date night.
Perfectly matched to her natural hair color, this big bun is the epitome of glamorous, perfect for the red carpet where Carrie wears it. While her hair is naturally thick, most women’s hair doesn’t have the thickness to create a bun this large and stunning. It can be achieved either with a hairpiece or with extensions clipped in or weaved in to create the fantastic volume needed for this show-stopping style. Sexy makeup, a high-fashion dress, and killer shoes complete this look.
When Carrie stands up for her friend Stanford at his wedding, she’s dressed like the best man, and like having a female best man, her hair is in no way traditional. The stylists for the movie took a risk with this unconventional hairstyle, but if anyone can pull it off, Carrie can. On a show like SATC, the stylists have tried just about everything, so these chic crimped ends are a new twist on an old look. Extensions give enough volume to give the crimped ends more interest and complete this unconventional but inspiring look.
