Erika Christensen Straight, Blonde Hairstyle with Highlights
Erika Christensen's Straight, Blonde Hairstyle with Highlights looks gorgeous on shoulder-length hair. Steal her style: 1.

Once your hair is completely dry, run a flat iron over the bottom half of it to get it extra straight. 4. Rub some shine serum on your ends to hide split ends, and tuck your hair behind both ears.

Malin Akerman Wavy, Blonde, Chic Hairstyle
Malin Akerman's soft waves totally work for straight or wavy hair. Get this look at home: 1. To give your hair volume apply a mousse or volumizer before you dry. If you have wavy hair, use a paddle brush to blow dry it straight. 2. Once your hair is totally dry, make a side part. Then, curl the bottom section of your hair with a medium-barrel curling iron. You can pin the curls as you go or just leave them loose. 3. Once the curls are cool, keep away from the brush (that's an order!). Simply separate them into waves with your fingers. 4. Smooth on a drop of shine serum and you're all set. See More Malin Akerman Hairstyles
Kirsten Dunst Tousled Updo
Kristen Dunst's side-set chignon works well with fine hair that's layered. If some pieces slip out, that just makes it look better. To get the look: 1. Apply thickening spray and blow dry with a vent brush. (This will add volume, but not puffed-out volume.) 2. Blow dry bangs to the side. 3. Brush hair back and create a side ponytail behind your earlobe. Wind the tail into a bun and anchor it with bobby pins. 4. Mist allover with flexible-hold hairspray.
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 Winslet Blonde, Prom Updo
Kate Winslet's 'do is an Oscar favorite -- but you can wear it anywhere. What to do: 1. Apply mousse to damp hair and blow dry with a round, mixed- or boar-bristle brush. 2. Work styling gel through hair (from ear-length down). 3. Part hair in the center and brush back into a low ponytail, leaving out some strands out near your temples. Secure the pony at the nape of your neck with an elastic. 4. Braid or twist the ponytail to wrap it around the base. Secure with bobby pins. 5. Twist the hair you left out back and over the top of the bun. Pin into place. 6. Tame flyaways with finishing cream and apply hairspray for extra hold.
Julia Stiles Party Updo
Julia Stiles' uber-casual updo would be great for a casual get-together. Steal her style: 1. Blow dry damp hair straight using a paddle brush. 2. Tease the hair at the crown for a little extra volume. 3. Pull back hair into a French twist by twisting all your hair to the right while pulling the ends of your hair up toward the ceiling and pinning in place. The messier the better in this step. 4. Loop ends over and tuck into French twist, pinning in place and use a bit of spray shine to glam it up a bit.
