Tyra Banks Funky Updo
Tyra Banks' updo is a great daytime look for straight hair. What to do: 1. Apply texturizing lotion on damp hair, which will help keep the updo in place. Blow dry hair with a paddle brush for maximum straightness. 2. Using a straightening iron, smooth out 2-inch sections all over your head. 3. Gather hair -- no need to be precise, as the look is meant to look super casual -- and pull back into a ponytail. Twist the end of the ponytail around the base and secure with bobby pins. 4. Pull a couple of random strands loose in front and arrange them to frame your face. See More Tyra Banks Hairstyles
Tyra Banks Funky, Party Updo
Tyra Banks' eye-catching updo is a long-haired look that says you -- and your hair -- are ready to party. Get the look: 1. Apply texturing lotion and blow dry hair using a paddle brush ... volume is not as important with this style as making sure your hair is straight, shiny and has some texture to maintain an updo. 2. Once hair is dry, use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair, all over your head. 3. Pull hair, very tightly, into a ponytail and secure it on top of your head. 4. Take individual sections of your ponytail, apply pomade to them, and roll them into a loop that protrudes from the ponytail and secure them in place with pins. Repeat until all but one section of the ponytail has been looped ... leave that tail of the 'tail hanging off to the side, and secure the, ahem, structure with a generous amount of hairspray.

Shannyn Sossamon Short, Brunette Hairstyle
Shannyn Sossamon's playful, flippy style works really well in super-short hair. What to do: 1. On damp hair, evenly distribute a nickel-sized amount of styling cream. 2. Using fingers instead of a brush, blow dry hair. This works best if you hold the blow dryer directly above your head and point it down. 3. Curl ends of hair around fingers and continue blow drying. Don't burn your fingers, but get the ends to flip. It's a fine line you'll be crossing but you can do it. 4. Finish by styling your bangs to the right across your forehead. Use your fingers or a curling iron if needed.
Kristin Chenoweth Layered Shag
Kristin Chenoweth's simple shag works best on thin hair. To get the look: 1. After you wash your hair, blow dry until slightly damp. 2. Rub gel on your palms, and then rake hands through hair. 3. Now blow dry for another 30 seconds using cold air to set the style and give you piece-y texture.
Keyshia Cole Funky, Blonde, Short Hairstyle
Keyshia Cole's funky pixie 'do is sweet and simple to style. 1. Apply a dollop of mousse to the length of your hair, scrunching it into the roots. 2. Using a vented brush, blow dry strands straight by lifting small sections and directing the hot air underneath, which will add volume at the roots. 3. For the front swoop, brush hair forward and against the scalp while drying. 4. Finish the style by rubbing a few drops of a shine serum between palms, then smoothing over hair.
Keyshia Cole Red, Curly Hairstyle
Keyshia Cole's red ringlets have a romantic feel that's perfect for date nights or proms. What to do: 1. To get the look, distribute a styling cream through damp hair, then blow dry. A rough dry is fine, as you'll be curling your hair too, just make sure it's completely dry before moving on. 2. Once hair is dry, wind half-inch sections around a thin-barreled curling iron from ends to roots. Hold the iron vertically while turning. 3. Hold the iron in place for a few seconds, then release the clamp while pulling the iron down and away from hair. 4. Allow the curls to cool, then spray with a medium-hold hairspray. Don't comb, don't brush -- don't even touch -- the curls or you'll ruin the ringlets.
Katie Cassidy Formal, Wedding Updo
Katie Cassidy's formal updo is an elegant choice for a bride or bridesmaid. Steal her style: 1. To get the look, apply a smoothing serum and straighten hair first with a blow dryer and then using an iron. 2. Next, tie hair up into a high ponytail, brushing out bumps as you pull up. Sleek is what we're going for. 3. Separate your ponytail into sections and smooth gel through each. Form a loop with each section, criss-crossing them over each other. Secure each section with bobby pins, tucking them into the bun so they're hidden. Save one last section to wrap around the base of the updo. 4. Mist generously with hairspray -- definitely don't want it falling apart on your big day.
