Nicole Richie Medium-Length, Blonde Ponytail
Nicole Richie's low ponytail and sweeping bangs make a sophisticated style. Get the look: 1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair. 2. Blow dry hair with a large paddle brush, brushing it under (with the brush under the hair as you pull it through). The paddle brush will help smooth out your hair. Blow dry bangs across forehead and off to the side. 3. Use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair on the sides, in front and in back. Lightly tease hair at the crown of your head for a little extra volume. Smooth top layer over it. 4. Leaving bangs free, pull rest of hair back into a ponytail, based slightly above the nape of your neck and to the side, and secure with an elastic band. 5. For bangs, apply a small amount of hair wax to sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. Set the look with a light-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles
Nicole Richie Medium-Length, Wavy, Blonde Bob
Nicole Richie's waves turn a simple bob haircut into a soft, sophisticated style. Get her look: 1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair and part it to one side. 2. Blow dry hair with a large round brush, brushing it under (with the brush under the hair as you pull it through). Blow dry bangs across forehead and off to the side of the part. 3. Using a large-barrel curling iron, curl 3-inch sections of hair in front, the sides and the back, for 10 seconds at a time. You don't want to create tight curls, but large waves. 4. Finger comb hair to loosen, lift and separate curls, which will add volume and softness to your style. Use a dab of hair wax to direct any errant pieces, and finish the look with a light mist of light-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles

Set waves with strong-hold hairspray, and don't be afraid to run your hands through your hair once in a while.
Kirsten Dunst Tousled Updo
Kristen Dunst's side-set chignon works well with fine hair that's layered. If some pieces slip out, that just makes it look better. To get the look: 1. Apply thickening spray and blow dry with a vent brush. (This will add volume, but not puffed-out volume.) 2. Blow dry bangs to the side. 3. Brush hair back and create a side ponytail behind your earlobe. Wind the tail into a bun and anchor it with bobby pins. 4. Mist allover with flexible-hold hairspray.

Pull back hair into a French twist by twisting all your hair to the right while pulling the ends of your hair up toward the ceiling and pinning in place. The messier the better in this step. 4. Loop ends over and tuck into French twist, pinning in place and use a bit of spray shine to glam it up a bit.

Jessica Simpson Sophisticated Updo
Jessica Simpson's sophisticated updo with long, side-swept bangs really draws attention to beautiful high cheekbones. Steal her style: 1. Flip head upside down and blow dry hair completely using a paddle brush. 2. Tease hair -- and don't be shy here, the more you tease, the better this will look. Smooth top layer by gently brushing. 3. Gather hair at nape of neck and gently twist, bringing ends of hair toward the ceiling and tucking the ends into the twist. Pin with bobby pins up and down left side of twist and make sure to hide the bobby pins well. 4. Sweep bangs to the left and spray entire head with maximum hold hairspray.
Adrienne Bailon Long, Tousled Updo
Adrienne Bailon's sexy updo is the perfect look for a casual summer evening. 1. Use a volumizing spray before blow drying hair with a diffuser, for maximum body. 2. Part dry hair on the side and pull it back into a twist. Secure it into place with bobby pins. 3. Sweep the bangs off to one side, and, using a large-barrel curling iron or hot rollers, curl for five to 10 seconds. You want a slight wave in the bangs, not a full-on curl. 4. Using a medium or small-barrel curling iron, add curls to small sections of the hair hanging down in back. Create a mixture of waves and slightly tighter curls; you want your hair to look like it's totally natural (yeah, yeah, it's that whole looks easy but actually takes a ton of work deal). Use a medium-hold hairspray to secure the style in place. Link See More Adrienne Bailon Hairstyles
