Paris Hilton's fun and girly hairstyle is great for your next party. Steal her style: 1. Apply a smoothing cream to hair from root to tip and blow dry straight using a paddle brush. 2. Going section by section, curl the bottom half of your hair with a 3/4-inch curling iron to get well-defined curls. 3. Now take a section of hair from each side of your head and twist them back. Secure them down right above your ear by criss-crossing two bobby pins on top of each other. 4. Mist hair with a strong-hold hairspray to keep your cutesy look in place.

Nicky Hilton Straight Half Updo for Oval Faces
Nicky Hilton's straight and silky half updo works well for day and nighttime events. What to do: 1. To get the look, apply a straightening serum to damp hair and section off hair with clips. 2. Next, with a round brush, dry in 2-inch sections. Pull the brush gently through the hair and twist the brush under slightly at the end so the tips don't look severely straight. 3. When your hair is completely dry, apply a shine serum, making sure it's applied throughout the hair. 4. Next, take about four inches of hair at your forehead and pull it forward. Then, with a teasing comb, lightly tease the hair at your crown -- more teasing equals more height. 5. Then lay the front hair over the teased section, making sure it's pulled straight and sleek (you want it to be fly-away free) and secure in the back of the crown with a few bobby pins. 6. Finish off the look with a holding spray, making sure to get the bouffant, and the rest of your hair, too.
Kelly Clarkson Straight Half Updo
Kelly Clarkson's sleek half updo looks chic yet flirty -- perfect for a casual night out. Steal her look: 1. Whether your hair is straight or slightly textured, apply a straightening cream, then use a paddle brush to blow dry hair. Pull each section straight while you dry, as smooth locks are the key to this look. 2. Set and polish strands by smoothing over 2-inch sections with a straightening iron. 3. To create the Bardot-Bump, start by making a part on either side of your head. Next, gather the top section of hair that falls between the parts and lift vertically. 4. Tease the backside of this section of hair, then spritz with hairspray. Push slightly forward for height -- don't go overboard unless you actually like Snookie's pouf -- then pin into place with a few bobby pins. 5. Finish the style with some hairspray to hold in place.
Kate Winslet Wavy Half Updo
Kate Winslet's wedding- and prom-friendly half updo is super flattering for almost anyone, without looking too young or old. Steal her style: 1. If your hair is too short, get some extensions to help you fake this 'do (your hair should be at least six inches long, though). 2. Work styling lotion through slightly damp hair, comb through and set your entire head with pin curls. Do this by wrapping sections of hair around your finger and then pin them to your scalp. (You can also use hot rollers on dry hair.) 3. Release and finger-comb waves. 4. Touch any curls up with a curling iron if needed. Pull the top section of hair back and pin into place, leave a face-framing piece on each side of your head.
Kate Bosworth Wavy, Formal Half-Updo
Kate Bosworth's wavy hairstyle can be done on naturally wavy hair or straight hair. What to do: 1. If your hair is wavy, apply a curl enhancing cream to start. If you hair is straight, apply a styling mousse to hold curls better instead. Blow dry with a diffuser to bring out curls. 2. Curl your hair using a curling iron, but leave out the ends -- you want a messy look. 4. Now pin hair back into a half updo. 3. Don't forget to pull out some strands near your ear and curl them.
