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.
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

Grab a 1-inch section closest to your scalp, along your part and start braiding away from your forehead, finishing after you pass your ear. Secure with a small hair elastic. 4.
