Vanessa Minnillo's Long, Brunette Half Updo
Vanessa Minillo's ultra-long hair and windblown pouf make for a party-perfect 'do. Get the look: 1. To get this look, first apply a volumizing mousse to towel-dried hair. 2. Next, blow dry hair using a large round brush. Lift hair up and away from the scalp as you dry to create volume, and turn the brush as you dry the length for slightly turned-under ends. 3. Once hair is dry, begin backcombing small sections of hair at the crown. Focusing your teasing attention toward the top of your head and working on the sides less will keep you from looking like you have a lion's mane. 4. To make the pouf, gather the sides and top of your hair and brush the top over the teased sections. Twist the section as you push hair forward, then pin the twist in place to secure. 5. Spray with a medium-hold hairspray to hold the look in place.
Uma Thurman Romantic Updo

Wrap the very top layer of your hair, and any strands that usually frame your face, around a half-inch curling iron to get more structured curls. Mist with hairspray. 3. Using fingers, comb and gather hair into a loose ponytail at the nape of your neck, securing it with an elastic. 4. Loop the pony into a bun, tucking in any loose ends. Pin into place with bobby pins that match your hair color. If pieces pop out, smile and let them be -- the messier, the hotter. 5. Mist with firm-hold yet touchable hairspray and pull a few face-framing tendrils out in front if you like. See More Uma Thurman Hairstyles
