Paris Hilton Long, Blonde Half Updo
Paris Hilton's sleek blonde half updo is a perfect choice for a girls' night out. What to do: 1. To get the look, apply a straightening cream to damp hair and blow dry straight with a paddle brush. 2. Use a straightener to touch up any wavy sections. 3. Then, create a side part with a comb (it doesn't have to be a perfectly straight part), and tease the hair near the back of your crown with a teasing comb. 4. Pull some of the hair in front of the teased section over, and pin back the sides of your hair, securing with pins. 5. Finally, mist finishing spray to keep hair shiny.

Nicky Hilton Straight Half Updo for Oval Faces
Nicky Hilton's straight and silky half updo works well for day and nighttime events. What to do: 1. To get the look, apply a straightening serum to damp hair and section off hair with clips. 2. Next, with a round brush, dry in 2-inch sections. Pull the brush gently through the hair and twist the brush under slightly at the end so the tips don't look severely straight. 3. When your hair is completely dry, apply a shine serum, making sure it's applied throughout the hair. 4. Next, take about four inches of hair at your forehead and pull it forward. Then, with a teasing comb, lightly tease the hair at your crown -- more teasing equals more height. 5. Then lay the front hair over the teased section, making sure it's pulled straight and sleek (you want it to be fly-away free) and secure in the back of the crown with a few bobby pins. 6. Finish off the look with a holding spray, making sure to get the bouffant, and the rest of your hair, too.
Kim Kardashian Half Updo for Prom
Kim Kardashian's long half updo hairstyle is fierce for straight hair and will stay put through hours of dancing. Steal her style: 1. Start by sectioning off hair into two parts: the top half of your head in a horseshoe shape and the bottom half, which you will leave alone for now. 2. Apply an ample amount of strong hold gel or molding cream to your horseshoe shape and tease the hair, starting at the back of your head and working your way forwards until you reach the inch before your forehead. 3. With fine tooth comb, brush that remaining inch over your teased section and start sculpting back, spraying with strong hold hairspray as you mold into shape. 4. Slick back the sides of your hair and pin back underneath the ends of the teased section, hiding the bobby pins. 5. Twist a couple large sections from the bottom half of your hair around the barrel of a curling iron. Spray with hairspray as needed. See More Kim Kardashian Hairstyles
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.
