Mischa Barton Long, Curly, Romantic Hairstyle
Mischa Barton's pretty curls frame her face and show off her bright eyes and big smile. To get the look: 1. As always, when volume is key, apply volumizing mousse to wet hair at the roots. Blow dry with a diffuser and a large round brush, creating body and waves. 2. Part hair slightly to one side, and, using a large-barrel curling iron, curl 2-inch sections of hair all over the sides and back of head. Don't curl the bangs. 3. From the middle of your head on each side, gather a 1- or 2-inch section of hair towards the back of your head, halfway down between your crown and the nape of your neck. Form it into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic band or a pretty clip. 4. Lightly separate curls with your fingers; don't break up the curls, but break large sections of curls into several smaller ones, pointing in various directions to create a fuller look. 5. Use a straightening iron to smooth out your bangs, sweeping them off to each side of your head. Set the whole look with a medium-hold hairspray.

Lindsay Lohan Long, Wavy Half Updo
Lindsay Lohan's sexy half updo is all about illusions. Sexify your look: 1. Set hair with large rollers and release when cool. 2. 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.

Smooth the top half of your hair (leave out about two inches on the front and sides) back over the crown of your head to form the half-up portion. Puff forward with your fingers and secure with bobby pins, hair combs or a decorative clip. 4. Spot-curl any sections that are left hanging and set with hairspray.

To create the Bardot-Bump, start by making a part on either side of your head. Next, gather the top section of hair that falls between the parts and lift vertically. 4. Tease the backside of this section of hair, then spritz with hairspray. Push slightly forward for height -- don't go overboard unless you actually like Snookie's pouf -- then pin into place with a few bobby pins. 5. Finish the style with some hairspray to hold in place.
