Reese Witherspoon Blonde, Curly Bob
Reese Witherspoon's waves are a perfect way to disguise a growing bob haircut -- with style. Get the look: 1. Wash, towel dry and work a styling cream through hair. 2. Blow dry hair straight using a round brush and make a deep side part. 3. Wrap sections of hair around a 1-inch-or-larger curling iron. Curl hair in the same direction as you move around your head. 4. Spray a comb with hairspray and neatly part hair (and bangs if you have 'em) to the side. 5. Hairspray the rest of your 'do into place, tucking the side opposite your part behind your ear.
Reese Witherspoon Blonde Bob
Reese Witherspoon's curls are one of the many ways to add retro-glam style to a short bob haircut. Steal her style: 1. Apply a volumizing mousse, then blow dry hair straight with a medium round brush (it's a slight helmet-head look, we know). 2. While hair is still warm, run an itty-bit of pomade between your hands and part bangs to the side, then create one large pin curl with them. Pin in place over your forehead. 3. With a 1-inch curling iron, work around your head to curl hair ends under. 4. Rub a some pomade or wax between hands and smooth over the rest of your hair, tucking select pieces behind your ears. 5. Release the pin curl and shape it to the side. Pin into place if it won't stay put. 6. Set bangs and curls with hairspray.
Jessica Stroup Wavy, Brunette Bob
Jessica Stroup's wavy bob can be done with most any hair type, but it's best on naturally wavy ones. Get the look: 1. Make sure hair is cut into a long, angled bob that ends just below the chin. 2. Wash hair, work through with mousse and blow dry. 3. Using fingers, make large pin curls with 1-inch sections of hair and pin or clip into place. Hit hair with the blow dryer once more for a minute or two. Finish getting ready. 4. Release curls when cool, fluff with fingers and part hair to the side. Set with hairspray.
Jessica Stroup Brunette Bob
Jessica Stroup's choppy, textured bob is edgy and imperfect -- is that you? See what to do: 1. Make sure hair is cut into a texturized bob that ends just below the chin. 2. Blow dry hair straight and part very deeply to the side with a comb. You may need to hairspray the part into place. 3. Work texturizing balm through fingers and smooth through random strands of hair to give the rest of your bob a piece-y look.
Drew Barrymore Short, Wavy, Romantic Bob
Drew Barrymore's short blonde bob is flirty, feminine and fun, and, best of all, good for formal or casual wear. Get the look: 1. Apply a volumizing mousse to wet hair, especially if your hair is not naturally wavy. The mousse will add body and make hair hold a wave more easily. Blow dry with a diffuser. 2. Make a dramatic part in hair, to one side. 3. Using medium-size hot rollers or a medium-barrel curling iron, roll 3-inch sections of hair for five to 10 seconds each. Unroll curls quickly and run fingers through them to loosen them into waves. Style them to frame your face and set look in place with hairspray. 4. For a funky accoutrement, add a bridal-style headpiece with netting, or add a sparkly barrette or flower in your hair. See More Drew Barrymore Hairstyles
Christina Hendricks' Tousled Bob for Heart-Shaped Faces
Christina Hendricks' soft waves are a sexy, sophisticated and simple style for your next date night. Steal her look: 1. To get the look, comb a straightening cream through your hair then blow dry until hair is about 80 percent dry. 2. Next, use a round brush to blow dry 2-inch sections of hair. Lift each section and apply tension to create volume at the crown. 3. As you dry the length of each section, roll hair around the brush, making loose waves at the ends. Randomly change the direction in which you roll the hair with each section so waves look perfectly imperfect. 4. Style with fingers and add a spritz of hairspray to finish.
Charlize Theron's Short, Wavy Bob
Charlize Theron's classic Hollywood ringlets are just messy enough to be considered cool. Steal her style: 1. Start with a layered, chin-length bob (a great style if you're growing out a super-short cut). 2. Work volumizing mousse or spray through hair and blow dry with a small round brush. 3. Create one-inch-wide pin curls all over your head, or if you aren't that coordinated, set hair in curlers (think old-school Clairol Lock 'N Roll -- eBay anyone?). 4. Release when ready, shake it out and finger comb for a slightly messy look. 5. Part curls in the center and set with hairspray.
Charlize Theron's Blonde, Wavy Bob
Charlize Theron's waves make a simple bob more fun and flirty. Get wavy here: 1. Spray your hair with a thermal styling spray to protect it from heat and help your waves last throughout the day. 2. Make a deep side part. 3. Wrap 1-inch sections of hair around the outside of a large-barreled curling iron. The bigger the curling iron, the looser the wave will be. 4. After hair cools down and sets, run your fingers through your hair to loosen up the curls. You can use a curl-defining cream to add more texture. 5. Set with a finishing spray.
Charlize Theron's Blonde Bob
Charlize Theron's blown-out bob is super sexy and sure to turn a lot of heads. Get the look: 1. Start by applying a volumizing mousse to the roots of wet hair. 2. Blow dry hair until it's about 80 percent dry. 3. Section the hair starting from the bottom, then finish drying the hair with a round brush, styling the hair to go under. (For shorter hair, use a medium round brush. For longer hair, use a large round brush.) Work your way up to the top of the head. 4. For added height and volume at the crown of your head, tease your hair starting about one inch from the scalp with a comb. Smooth out any bumps or flyaways with the back of your comb. 5. Set with a finishing hairspray.
Ashley Olsen Short Bob
Ashley Olsen's wavy, blonde style is a quick, yet chic, option for straight hair. What to do: 1. Part dry, straight hair down the middle of the scalp. 2. Wrap the bottom half of hair (in about 1-inch sections) around the barrel of a small curling iron. 3. Release curl from the iron and mist each section with a flexible hold hairspray. 4. Finger comb your bottom curls and with a small amount of wax, twisting the ends a bit to create definition. Rim your eyes with some black liner to copy Olsen's dramatic look.
