Nicole Richie Long, Straight Updo with Bangs
Nicole Richie's loose updo and darker color make for a sophisticated and romantic look. Steal her style: 1. Apply a texturizing lotion to damp hair, which makes it easier to keep an updo look in place. Part hair to one side, and blow dry with a diffuser, using a large paddle brush to smooth hair out. 2. If there are any frizzy or wavy sections, smooth them out further with a straightening iron. Then, leaving bangs free, gather hair, pull it back into a loose, low ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Wrap the ends of the ponytail around the base and pin it into place. 3. Run bangs through a straightener, add a small amount of hair wax and sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. 4. Finger style a few wisps of hair to fall softly near your ears, and lock the look into place with a spritz of shine spray and a misting of medium-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles
Mischa Barton Long, Curly, Sexy Hairstyle
Mischa Barton's sexy curls are a hot party look, from a prom to a wedding. Steal her style: 1. Starting with damp hair, work a volumizing mousse through your locks. 2. Part hair to one side, and, working in sections, blow dry hair with a diffuser and a large round brush. Pay special attention to the hair at the crown of your head, starting the brush at the root and slowly working it through to the ends, adding height and body to that section. Also use the round brush to blow dry the bangs forward, curling them under at the ends. 3. Once hair is dry, use a large-barrel curling iron or hot rollers to curl sections of hair all over sides and the back. 4. Finger comb the curls loose softly; you don't want to uncurl them, but you want to lift and separate them to add more body all over. If you want individual curls to stand out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingers and run it over those curls. Finish the look with shine spray to make it pop.
Liv Tyler Long, Wavy Hairstyle with Bangs
Liv Tyler's barely-there waves are a great way to dress up heavy, straight styles on blah hair days. To get the look: 1. This is an easy one. Start with straight, shiny, clean hair and make a deep side part. 2. Curl the entirety of your bangs around a 1-inch curling iron for a quick second and let loose. Sweep bangs to the side. 3. Now curl 2-inch sections of the top layer of your hair around the iron to create random ringlets. Leave most of your hair straight. 4. Set ringlets with hairspray.

Katherine Heigel Curly, Romantic, Long Hairstyle
Katherine Heigel's curly, retro-Hollywood inspired hair works whether you've got naturally curly or straight hair. Steal her style: 1. To start, apply a curling cream to damp hair, then use a diffuser to dry your hair, starting at the roots. 2. When hair is dry, clip half of your hair back, then spray about a 2-inch piece of hair with a holding spray. Use a large-barrel curling iron to curl the sections, holding for 20 seconds. 3. When this piece is complete, let the curl set (don't touch it), and grab another 2-inch section until all of your hair is curled. 4. Take a comb, and create a side part, and spray and curl the front section until you have a swooping wave. 5. Finish with a light-hold hairspray.
Jessica Simpson Sophisticated Updo
Jessica Simpson's sophisticated updo with long, side-swept bangs really draws attention to beautiful high cheekbones. Steal her style: 1. Flip head upside down and blow dry hair completely using a paddle brush. 2. Tease hair -- and don't be shy here, the more you tease, the better this will look. Smooth top layer by gently brushing. 3. Gather hair at nape of neck and gently twist, bringing ends of hair toward the ceiling and tucking the ends into the twist. Pin with bobby pins up and down left side of twist and make sure to hide the bobby pins well. 4. Sweep bangs to the left and spray entire head with maximum hold hairspray.
Ashanti Long, Curly Half Updo
Ashanti's curly, half updo is the perfect look for a glam occasion. Here's how to steal it: 1. Starting with dry hair, part your hair off to one side. Gather sections from the crown of your head and pull them together. Tease the hair and twist it into a bun, or use a Bumpit (admit it, you've seen the infomercials), to provide the illusion of a bun; the goal is to have the look of extra volume and height in the back. 2.Following the part you made earlier, where your hair sweeps across your forehead to one side, use a large-barrel curling iron to begin curling 1-inch sections of your hair until your whole head is a cascade of curls. 3. Gently separate the curls with your fingers, shaping how you want them to fall and loosening tighter curls into waves (so it doesn't look too done). Use a medium-hold hairspray to secure the style in place.
Adrienne Bailon Long, Tousled Updo
Adrienne Bailon's sexy updo is the perfect look for a casual summer evening. 1. Use a volumizing spray before blow drying hair with a diffuser, for maximum body. 2. Part dry hair on the side and pull it back into a twist. Secure it into place with bobby pins. 3. Sweep the bangs off to one side, and, using a large-barrel curling iron or hot rollers, curl for five to 10 seconds. You want a slight wave in the bangs, not a full-on curl. 4. Using a medium or small-barrel curling iron, add curls to small sections of the hair hanging down in back. Create a mixture of waves and slightly tighter curls; you want your hair to look like it's totally natural (yeah, yeah, it's that whole looks easy but actually takes a ton of work deal). Use a medium-hold hairspray to secure the style in place. Link See More Adrienne Bailon Hairstyles
