Nicole Richie's Long, Blonde, Party, Updo Hairstyle with Bangs
Nicole Richie's Long, Blonde, Party, Updo Hairstyle with Bangs has a '60s retro vibe and is actually super easy to recreate. Steal her style: 1. To get Nicole Richie's hairstyle, mist your unwashed hair with a texturing spray to create body. 2. Divide your hair into two sections: A top section and a bottom section. The divide should start at the top of the ears. 3. Take the top section and create a high, tight bun at the top of your head. Secure with an elastic. 4. Take the bottom section and gather the hair into a ponytail at the back of your head. Twist the ponytail until it becomes a coil. 5. Wrap the coil up and over the front of your head in front of the bun. Bobby pin it along the way to keep the coil intact, and pin the end of the coil into the back of the bun. 6. Spritz with a strong hold hairspray to tame flyaways and keep hair in place all day. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles

Paris Hilton Sophisticated, Braided Updo
Paris Hilton's braided, chic updo is the perfect sure-to-impress look for a prim and proper party. Get her look: 1. To get started, apply a straightening serum and blow dry hair straight with a paddle brush. 2. Then, use a comb to create a side part (you're going to want to part it pretty severely). 3. Next, pull your hair back into a tight ponytail below the crown of your head, making sure your side part does not get slicked straight back. 4. Take your hair in the ponytail and braid hair into tiny braids (you're going to want to make each the size of your pinky). 5. Take the ends of the braids and twist them around the base, and secure in place with pins. 6. Finish with a holding spray to keep flyaways at bay. See More Paris Hilton Hairstyles

Blow dry with a diffuser and a large round brush to add volume. 2. Set aside two, 2-inch sections of hair near the nape of your neck. Take the rest of your hair and pull it into a high ponytail. Take the ends of the pony and wrap and pin them around the base to create a bun. 3. Take each of the sections you set aside at the nape of your neck and braid them. Wrap the braids around the bun and pin in place. Or, you could use a braided extension and just wrap that around the bun. 4. Using a small amount of hair wax, style your bangs (which should also be parted down the middle) across your forehead and off to the side on each side. Add another dab of wax to end of bangs to give them a slight wave, and set the style with a misting of medium-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles

If there are any frizzy or wavy sections, smooth them out further with a straightening iron. Then, leaving bangs free, gather hair, pull it back into a loose, low ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Wrap the ends of the ponytail around the base and pin it into place. 3. Run bangs through a straightener, add a small amount of hair wax and sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. 4.

Pull a few random strands here and there, and touch them up with a hair straightener or a curling iron (depending on the look you want). Set the look with a light misting of hair spray.
