Mist the top of your head with anti-frizz hairspray to finish. See More Kristin Kreuk Hairstyles
Lacey Chabert Medium, Curly, Brunette Hairstyle with Bangs
Lacey Chabert's girly curls look so pretty on medium length hair. Steal her style: 1. Right when you get out of the shower, part your hair to the side. Apply smoothing cream to damp hair and blow dry straight using a paddle brush. 2. While your bangs are still damp, switch to a round brush to dry them to add a bit of bounce and volume. 3. Use a 1-inch curling iron to curl just the ends of your hair, twisting the barrel in opposite directions when curling each section. 4. Once all of your ends are curled, mist them with lightweight hairspray for a flexible finish. See More Lacey Chabert Hairstyles
Tiffani Thiessen Straight, Brunette Hairstyle with Bangs
Tiffani Thiessen's feathery bangs frame oval, heart or triangle face shapes in a fun, flirty way. 1. Have your stylist cut your bangs somewhat blunt, just above eyebrow level. Then ask them to feather your bangs at an angle. The rest of your hair should be medium-length (or longer) and layered. 2. Part hair slightly to the side and blow dry it straight with a large round brush, curling ends in. 3. Smooth with shine serum and mist with hairspray to set. 4. Tip: If you have a slight cowlick where the bangs are shortest, use a smidge of pomade to add texture and weigh down hair there.
Reese Witherspoon Long, Wavy, Blonde Hairstyle with Bangs
Reese Witherspoon's famed cut can also be worn wavy for a romantic vibe. To get her look: 1. Start with hair that's mostly one length except for a few long layers in front, and bangs cut blunt at eye level. 2. Work mousse through hair and volumizer at the roots. 3. Blow dry hair with a large round brush, curling up and letting the brush stay in place for a few seconds on each section. (When you release the brush, do so vertically, like you're unwinding the curl.) If that didn't work out so well (we know, it's tricky), follow up with a curling iron on your ends. 4. Blow dry your bangs under. 5. Tame flyaways with a little shine serum and mist curls with hairspray to hold.
Reese Witherspoon Long, Straight, Blonde Hairstyle with Bangs
Reese Witherspoon's most popular style to date is perfect for heart-shaped faces. Get her look: 1. Have your hair cut mostly one length but ask for a few long layers in front. You want blunt-cut bangs that have a tiny bit of texture to them and follow your brow line. 2. Work smoothing styling cream through hair and blow dry straight with a large round or paddle brush. (Be sure to blow dry your bangs just a touch to the side.) 3. If necessary, flat iron strands to get an uber-sleek finish. 4. Tame flyaways with a little more styling cream and smooth over hair with shine serum. 5. Mist with hairspray to prevent kinking later.
Kerry Washington Long, Wavy, Black Hairstyle with Bangs
Kerry Washington's curly mane is perfect for naturally curly textures and heart-shaped faces. 1. Work a defrizzing styling cream or protective oil, like Moroccan oil, throughout hair and blow dry straight on a low setting with a round brush. (Make sure you lift your roots up as you blow dry so you get some oomph.) Don't forget to straighten your bangs, which should be feather cut. 2. Once your hair is dry, divide hair into sections and wrap 1-inch pieces around a large-barreled curling iron to get Kerry's smooth ringlets. Work from the bottom up. 3. Rub your fingers in some styling wax and finger comb your waves. 4. Finish the look with hairspray and shine spray (flip hair upside-down and spray the curls beneath for extra sexiness).
Kathryn Morris Medium-Length, Blonde, Shag Hairstyle
Kathryn Morris is sporting a classic shag cut that's sophisticated, thanks to the razored ends, and easy to style. Get her look: 1. Apply styling mousse and work throughout damp hair. Part hair to the left. 2. Using a large round brush, blow dry small sections of hair. Blow dry bangs to the left, blow ends of hair up (with brush on top of the hair) and pay special attention to hair at the crown of head, where you want the most volume. At crown, pick up very small sections, and, using the round brush, pull brush through strands slowly, beginning at the root and pulling through to the ends. 3. On the top and crown of head, use large hot rollers on sections of hair, leaving them in for just 10 to 15 seconds at a time (you're trying to create body and shape, not actual curls). 4. Use hair wax to separate pieces of hair at the ends, and lightly mist hair with a light-hold hairspray to set the look.
Jessica Stroup Straight, Brunette Updo
Jessica Stroup's sexy-yet-casual updo is super versatile for layered haircuts -- wear it anywhere. To steal her look: 1. Work curl-shaping gel through hair and blow dry with a diffuser to bring out wavy texture. Using a brush on your bangs only, sweep them to the side and flip them out. 2. Make a deep side part and gather hair into a side ponytail (leave out your bangs). Secure with an elastic. 3. Loop the ponytail into a knot and secure in place with bobby pins. 4. Pull out a face-framing tendril or two opposite your bangs. Set the look with hairspray. See More Jessica Stroup Hairstyles
Jessica Stroup Brunette Updo
Jessica Stroup's chic updo works perfectly on straight, layered hair with long, sideswept bangs. Steal her style: 1. If your hair is already straight, great.

Gather hair into a bun, either straight back or to the side, leaving your bangs and a few side pieces out. Secure with an elastic and bobby pins. 3. Make a deep side part with leftover pieces and flatiron them until they are super sleek. 4. Mist with shine spray if you want an extra glossy finish. Then set the entire look with hairspray.
Charlize Theron's Medium, Wavy Hairstyle with Bangs
Charlize Theron's soft, jumbo waves work for most any hair type -- but they are a bit of a time sucker. Consider yourself warned: 1. Spray roots at the crown of your head with volumizer and apply mousse and heat protectant spray throughout. Blow dry straight (or straight-ish) with a round brush. 2. If your hair (and your patience) can take it, set it in hot rollers. Otherwise, roll it in medium-sized Velcro rollers and go do something else for at least a half hour. 3. Remove rollers and finger comb gently to shape and place curls. Part hair to the side and set with hairspray.
Ashley Olsen Tousled, Edgy Hairstyle
Ashley Olsen's semi updo with beachy waves is a hip option for medium length hair. Get the look: 1. Working with dry hair, spray 1-inch sections with curl enhancing spray and wrap hair clockwise around a small-barreled curling iron, letting hair sit on heat for about seven seconds. Curl your entire head this way, leaving out your bangs. 2. Designate a side part and run a thin flat iron quickly over bangs to smooth them out. Quickly being the operative word, you don't want them to stick up (think "There's Something About Mary"). 3. Finger comb your curls and pull the back half of your hair into a loose low ponytail, leaving your front curls out and ready for action. 4. Spray with a flexible-hold hairspray.
