Ashley Greene Curly Half Updo for Prom
Ashley Greene's voluminous updo is so sexy and prom-perfect. Steal her style with tips from Herbal Essences celebrity stylist Charles Baker Strahan: 1. Spritz hair with a texturizing spray and use a diffuser to create a lightly tousled base. 2. To keep height in the crown, push hair forward and backcomb the hair underneath. It might look too tall, but it should be much larger than you think it should be. 3. Flip hair back down and set a front part. Spray some hairspray on a boar bristle brush and lightly smooth the top area. 4. Now work the sides back, smoothing hair from the sides only. (Don't deflate your volume up top.) Secure the pieces with bobby pins at the back of your head. 5. Use a medium sized curling iron to curl the bottom half of your hair, and set the look with a strong-hold hairspray.

Sienna Miller's glossy waves and deep side part are a glamorous pick for date nights. What to do: 1. Start by applying a styling cream to damp hair. Create a deep side part, then blow dry strands straight with a paddle brush. 2. Once hair is dry, mist 2-inch sections with a styling spray before curling them with a large barreled curling iron. Avoid curling the top three inches of hair, so curls are concentrated toward the ends. 3. When all sections are curled, rub a few drops of shine serum between your palms, then work through curls to separate and add shine.

Backcomb (tease) hair at the crown and set as you go with lots of strong-hold hairspray (or if you're a sucker for time-consuming hair experiments, stick a prop in there like a Velcro roller or a Bumpit and cover with teased hair). 3. Smooth top of hair over with a brush to cover the evidence. 4. Fasten long, wavy, clip-in extensions from ear to ear. This makes it look like you still have a lot of hair once you put the other half up. 5. Leaving a few face-framing pieces out, brush sides of hair back to cover the extension clips and pin into place. (Angle bobby pins up toward the center of your head.) 6. Set with more hairspray.
