Nicole Richie Medium-Length, Blonde Ponytail
Nicole Richie's low ponytail and sweeping bangs make a sophisticated style. Get the look: 1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair. 2. Blow dry hair with a large paddle brush, brushing it under (with the brush under the hair as you pull it through). The paddle brush will help smooth out your hair. Blow dry bangs across forehead and off to the side. 3. Use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair on the sides, in front and in back. Lightly tease hair at the crown of your head for a little extra volume. Smooth top layer over it. 4. Leaving bangs free, pull rest of hair back into a ponytail, based slightly above the nape of your neck and to the side, and secure with an elastic band. 5. For bangs, apply a small amount of hair wax to sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. Set the look with a light-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie 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.
