Olympic Beauty - Get the Fab Five's Winning Gold Medal Look


(Getty Images) It was hard to hold back tears last night when the US Women's Gymnastics team—aka the Fab Five—won gold. Maybe it was their genuine smiles, sparkling red leotards, and adorable messy buns, but we instantly fell in love with this group of girls.

In honor of their big win, here's how to recreate the gold-medal-worthy beauty look at home:

The Messy Bun

From day one of the Olympics, the messy bun was a Fab Five signature. Perfect for a day when you're rushing to work or school, get the look by loosely tying up your tresses in a looped-halfway-through ponytail. For more details, check out our updo DIY here

The Scrunchy

The scrunchy has been battling a bad rap ever since its 90s ubiquity—and, after being off-the-radar for more than a decade, the Fab Five has made it cool again. Pick a printed one (like the cute scrunchies, above, from Urban Outfitters) to liven up any bad hair day! 

Smoky Green Eyes and Eyeliner

We can’t all win gold medals—but we can add some bling to our skin to look like we did! Go for a golden bronzer, like this one from Givenchy, that gives your cheeks an extra-special sparkle. We promise, you'll definitely look like a winner.
