Katrina Bowden Long, Wavy, Sophisticated, Blonde Hairstyle
Katrina Bowden's romantic waves look gorgeous on long hair. Steal her style: 1. This look works best on day old hair. To start, part hair down the center. 2. Wrap sections of hair around a 1 1/2-inch curling iron to get loose, haphazard waves. 3. Mist your waves with flexible-hold hairspray to finish. See More Katrina Bowden 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.
Mandy Moore Long, Tousled Updo
Mandy Moore's chic updo works for a casual or more glam event. Steal her style: 1. Use a volumizing spray before blow drying hair with a diffuser, for maximum body. 2. Part dry hair on the side, pull it back into a ponytail halfway between the crown of your head and the nape of your neck and secure it with an elastic band. 3. Twist the end of the ponytail around the base of the ponytail loosely, and secure it into place with bobby pins. It's okay if it looks slightly messy; this is not a sleek look. In fact, you can even massage the bun with your hands to make it looser and more messy. 4. Using a small amount of hair wax, smooth down any hair strands that are flying out on the front and sides of your hair, and use hairspray to lock the look in place.
Lindsay Lohan Romantic Updo for a Wedding
Lindsay Lohan's side chignon works great on day-old hair. To get the look: 1. Gather hair into a side pony, leaving half of your hair out at the front. Secure with an elastic. 2. Curl ponytail with a 1-inch curling iron. 3. To get a bit of texture, grab random sections of the ponytail and tease them with a comb, then gently smooth out with a brush. Mist with hairspray. 4. Tie the ponytail into a knot, pinning into place with as many pins as it takes. If a few strands pop out, leave them. You want a slightly messy finish. 5. Part the front of your hair in the center and gather the sides loosely back, wrapping ends that are long enough around the elastic to cover it. Pin into place. 6. Set with more hairspray.
Lindsay Lohan Romantic, Brunette Updo
Lindsay Lohan's wispy low bun is perfect for date nights. Steal her look: 1. Blow dry hair straight with a round brush and apply shine serum. 2. Backcomb (tease) hair at the crown of your head and set with hairspray. Smooth the top with a comb or paddle brush. 3. Pull hair back into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, securing with an elastic and leaving out 2-inch sections (to frame your face) plus a 1-inch section of hair underneath. 4. Wrap the sections of hair that were left out of the ponytail around a one-inch curling iron. 5. Start making a bun by pulling the ponytail through the elastic -- but not all the way through. The end of the pony should be sticking out of the bun, close to your neck. 6. Wrap the section that was left out beneath the ponytail around the elastic to disguise it. Secure with a bobby pin.
Lindsay Lohan Long Ponytail
Lindsay Lohan's bushy, side ponytail is a great way to salvage day-old curls. What to do: 1. If you're starting from scratch, set hair with hot rollers first, then release when cool. If you already have day-old curls, spritz roots with dry shampoo and brush through strands. 2. Part and brush hair neatly to one side, and create a ponytail behind one ear with a pretty elastic. (Only have ugly elastics? Leave a piece of hair out of the pony to wrap around the elastic instead, fastening the "cover-up" in place with a bobby pin.) 3. Pin bangs behind your ear (or as close as possible) and set the style with firm-hold hairspray.
Kelly Clarkson Straight Half Updo
Kelly Clarkson's sleek half updo looks chic yet flirty -- perfect for a casual night out. Steal her look: 1. Whether your hair is straight or slightly textured, apply a straightening cream, then use a paddle brush to blow dry hair. Pull each section straight while you dry, as smooth locks are the key to this look. 2. Set and polish strands by smoothing over 2-inch sections with a straightening iron. 3. 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.
Kate Winslet Chic, Blonde Updo
Kate Winslet's chignon is sleek and perfect on the surface but unruly from behind -- just how we like it. Get the look: 1. If you're hair isn't naturally straight, apply straightening balm and blow dry it straight with a jumbo-sized round brush. 2. Work a palm full of styling gel through hair, slick hair (and bangs) back with a comb. 3. Gather hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic just above ear level. 4. Twist the ponytail into a bun and pin into place, leaving the ends untucked. If a few pieces pop out, that's OK -- you want a little messiness back there.
Kate Bosworth Chic Ponytail
Kate Bosworth's voluminous ponytail is a perfect choice for your next party. What to do: 1. Tease the top of your hair, starting at your crown and working forward. When you've gotten the height you want, smooth the top layer over. 2. Pull your hair back into a low ponytail and mist with hairspray to finish.
Jennifer Hudson Long, Curly, Formal Hairstyle
Jennifer Hudson's curly, side-swept, long hair is a glam choice for your next dressy event. Steal her style: 1. To get the look, apply a curling cream and blow dry your hair at the roots with a diffuser -- no need to brush. 2. Once it's dry, create a dramatic side part. With a teasing comb, tease the roots of the hair on the main side-part for some added height, then smooth over the top layer. 3. Using a curling iron, curl 1-inch sections, making sure to curl from top to bottom of the section. In the front, you
