Melissa Reeves Long, Straight, Blonde Hairstyle
Melissa Reeves' long, straight 'do is a great, fuss-free style for everyday wear. Get the look: 1. Apply straightening balm to damp hair, especially if your hair has waves or curls in it, and part hair down the middle. Blow dry with a round brush, pulling hair at the roots through the brush slowly to achieve maximum volume. 2. Choose a hair straightener that is best for your hair length and thickness. Spray 2-inch sections of hair with shine spray, wait for hair to dry, and smooth your hair in the straightener, gliding the iron down from the root of your hair to the tip. 3. Don't brush your hair after using the straightener, as brushing could cause frizziness. 4.Take small sections of hair in front on each side and tuck them behind your ears. Finish look by applying a small amount of hair wax to your fingers and separate ends for a piece-y look.

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.
Madonna Brunette, Straight Bob
Madonna's bob has super-smooth, ultra-sleek strands and a defined center part. If you want this look, it's all about the cut. What to do: 1. Ask your hairdresser for a blunt haircut with no layers. 2. Start with a smoothing cream on damp hair and blow dry straight with a flat paddle brush. 3. Then, go over with a flat iron to give your hair shine and get it really straight. Be sure to keep the iron on the move. It shouldn't stay in one area for too long or you could fry your hair. 4. Spray your hairbrush with hairspray and gently brush through hair. See More Madonna Hairstyles
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.

Lisa Rinna Shag Hairstyle with Bangs

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.

Kim Kardashian Half Updo for Prom
Kim Kardashian's long half updo hairstyle is fierce for straight hair and will stay put through hours of dancing. Steal her style: 1. Start by sectioning off hair into two parts: the top half of your head in a horseshoe shape and the bottom half, which you will leave alone for now. 2. Apply an ample amount of strong hold gel or molding cream to your horseshoe shape and tease the hair, starting at the back of your head and working your way forwards until you reach the inch before your forehead. 3. With fine tooth comb, brush that remaining inch over your teased section and start sculpting back, spraying with strong hold hairspray as you mold into shape. 4. Slick back the sides of your hair and pin back underneath the ends of the teased section, hiding the bobby pins. 5. Twist a couple large sections from the bottom half of your hair around the barrel of a curling iron. Spray with hairspray as needed. See More Kim Kardashian Hairstyles
Kathryn Morris Medium-Length, Blonde, Shag Hairstyle
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.
