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.

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.
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.
