Carrie Underwood Chic, Blonde Ponytail
Carrie Underwood's girly ponytail is so easy to do. Steal her style: 1. This look works best on dirtier hair, because it gives your pony some grip. Rub texturizing mousse through dry hair and let it set. 2. Use your fingers to comb your hair into a low ponytail. Secure it with an elastic, and tug at the back of your head to add a bit of volume. 3. Smooth your bangs behind your ear, and mist hair with a light-hold hairspray.

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.
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
Mena Suvari Straight, Blonde Bob
Mena Suvari's sleek, retro bob is great for fine-haired ladies with bold personalities. Steal her look: 1. This 'do is all about the cut so ask your stylist for a chin-length bob that's textured at the ends with heavy, blunt-cut bangs. 2. Blow dry hair sans product. (It should already be straight if you're attempting this 'do but if not, use a paddle brush and straightening balm to get it as straight as possible.) 3. Run a flat iron through, 1-inch section by section, until hair is pin-straight. 4. Smooth with shine serum and mist with light-hold hairspray.

Spritz your roots with a volumizing spray then use a boar-bristle brush to blow dry hair straight. 2. Use a large round brush to blow dry bangs. Don't create a curl, though -- WAY too 80s; just turn the brush enough to give a slight bend and some volume. 3. Rub a dollop of pomade between your thumbs and pointer fingers, then twist small sections of hair just at the ends to create definition.
Melinda Clarke Blunt, Red Bob
Melinda Clarke's side-swept bangs are a sweet touch on this simple style. What to do: 1. To get this look, apply a straightening cream then part hair deeply to one side. Use a paddle brush to blow dry straight. 2. When hair is dry, mist with a heat protectant spray, then run a straightening iron through hair. 3. If you have long bangs, tuck them behind your ear. Otherwise take a 2-inch section of hair from the front of your face and secure that behind your ear with bobby pins. 4. Rub some shine serum in your hands then very lightly smooth palms over the surface of your hair.
Mariska Hargitay Layered Hairstyle with Long Bangs
Mariska Hargitay's style is a perfect choice for fine, straight hair. What to do: 1. This look is all about the cut, so take this picture to your stylist and ask for a short, layered bob with long, sideswept bangs. 2. To do this 'do, use mousse at the roots of your hair and blow dry hair up at the roots to get some volume, then style straight. 3. Fix your bangs by holding them to one side, between your second and third fingers, as you dry. 4. For the finishing touch, put a little wax on your fingertips and piece out the ends of your hair. Keep the wax just on the ends or your style will fall flat.
Liv Tyler Brunette Updo
Liv Tyler's easy updo works best on straight, medium to long hair with long bangs. What to do: 1. Begin with perfectly straight hair (do a run-through with a flat iron if you must). Rub some shine serum between your hands and smooth over hair to get extra shine. 2. Part hair to the side. 3. Tease roots at the crown for a little lift, spritz with hairspray and smooth over with a comb. 4. With the exception of your bangs, which should be neatly swept to the side, pull hair back into a mid-level pony. Secure with an elastic. 5. Wind your ponytail into a bun and pin into place, tucking in any loose ends. Mist with hairspray.
Lisa Rinna Short Hairstyle with Sideswept Bangs
Lisa Rinna's feathery bangs are a great way to handle over-grown fringe. To get the look: 1. Brush damp bangs into one section and spray the top and bottom of them with styling spray. Then mist the rest of your hair with the same spray. 2. Using a Mason Pearson-style brush, blow dry your bangs to the left, and the right, back and forth until they're 80 percent dry. This helps knock out any bendy-ness so they end up smooth. 3. Finish blow drying bangs in the direction you want them to end up. 4. After you've styled the rest of your hair, brush the bangs into place, finger comb 'em (to break them up), then mist allover with flexible-hold hairspray.

Then switch to a Mason Pearson-style, boar-bristle brush and finish blow drying. Scoop hair up at the roots for volume (bangs, too), and be sure to dry it with a soft bend. Gently direct the ends outward, for a gentle flick. 3. Finish by pinching a bit of styling wax through the ends. Just enough to define them.
Lisa Rinna Shag Hairstyle with Bangs
Lisa Rinna's shaggy cut is perfect for finer hair or to soften a square face. To get the look: 1. For her playful style, mist damp hair with a texturizing spray and rough dry it with your hands only. This pumps up the sexy, disheveled factor, big time. 2. If your bangs aren't naturally straight, brush them side to side as you blow dry. (A Mason Pearson-style, boar-bristle brush is a great bang-tamer.) 3. Finish with a smear of styling paste. Rub it between your hands and fingers and rake them though your ends to play up the fun flicked-out vibe.

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.
