Jessica Simpson Wedding Updo
Jessica Simpson's classic and sophisticated updo is great for straight, long hair with no bangs. What to do: 1. Pull dry hair back with a hair band in a ponytail, leaving a little volume at the crown. 2. Smooth flyaways using just a dab of styling paste rubbed between your palms. Don't use too much -- your hair will end up looking greasy. 3. Tease the base of the ponytail and then smooth top portion by gently brushing with a boar-bristle brush. 4. Twist ponytail to the right and then loosely twirl ponytail clockwise around the base, then pin into place with bobby pins. 5. Finish with maximum hold hairspray and then a bit of shine spray for that extra glimmer in the moonlight.
Jessica Simpson Sophisticated Updo
Jessica Simpson's sophisticated updo with long, side-swept bangs really draws attention to beautiful high cheekbones. Steal her style: 1. Flip head upside down and blow dry hair completely using a paddle brush. 2. Tease hair -- and don't be shy here, the more you tease, the better this will look. Smooth top layer by gently brushing. 3. Gather hair at nape of neck and gently twist, bringing ends of hair toward the ceiling and tucking the ends into the twist. Pin with bobby pins up and down left side of twist and make sure to hide the bobby pins well. 4. Sweep bangs to the left and spray entire head with maximum hold hairspray.

Jessica Simpson's messy look is just what is in order for drinks with the girls. Messify your look with these tips: 1. Using a large-barrel round brush, blow dry hair. 2. Create a loose French twist by pulling hair toward the nape of your neck, twisting counter clockwise, pulling ends toward the ceiling and using bobby pins to secure in place.

Finish with shine spray all over.
Eva Mendes Braided, Funky Updo
Eva Mendes' crown of twists, with a trailing, textured braid down the back, is an offbeat look for proms and other dressy occasions. Turn some heads with these tips: 1. To get this look, start by misting damp hair with a texturizing spray before blow drying it straight with a round brush. Don't focus too much on sleekness when you're drying, as in this case, you actually want hair to look a bit ratty and rumpled. 2. When hair is dry, gather all of it into a high ponytail and secure in place with an elastic band. 3. Next, divide the hair that's coming out of the ponytail into four sections. Twist three of the top sections a few times, winding them casually around the base of the ponytail. 4. With the lowest, remaining section, braid hair loosely and secure at the end with an elastic band before pushing the braid over one shoulder. Massage the braid a little with your fingers to give it that loose, messy style. 5. Finish by misting the top of the style with a strong hold hairspray. Don't spray the braid -- it's supposed to look messy and fall as your night wears on.

Angie Harmon's updo works great for long curly or wavy hair. 1. To start, apply a little gel and blow dry hair around a large round brush. 2. Make a center part and pull your hair back into a loose bun or French twist in back. Yep, it's that easy. 3. Finish with a little shine spray.
Angelina Jolie Wedding Updo
Angelina Jolie's loose French twist is ideal for medium to long hair. 1. Roller set dry hair with big hot rollers (apply them all over your head) for about 10 minutes and let loose once they're cool. This will help hair keep its hold as well as create those loose curls coming out the top of the twist. 2. Comb hair smoothly back from your forehead and to one side on the back of your head. Pin hair flat down to one side against scalp. 3. Take hair from the bottom and start twisting up, counterclockwise so you are twisting over the bobby pins already in place. Twist all the way up, pinning as you go (tip: if you crisscross the pins, the twist will stay better). 4. Once secure, fluff out the curls coming out of the top of the twist. 5. Pull out a couple of pieces around your face and spritz your entire head with medium hold hairspray.
Angelina Jolie Sophisticated Updo
Angelina Jolie's simple, elegant bun is a perfect choice for long, straight hair. 1. Start by blow-drying hair with a large barreled round brush, lifting at the roots to create volume. 2. To up the volume on top of your head, roll the hair that is closest to your face up, over and away from your face with the brush; focusing heat from dryer on the roots of your hair (you can finally use that narrow nozel that came with your dryer, score). 3. When hair is completely dry, pull hair back into medium-high ponytail and secure with elastic. 4. Loosen ponytail and then pull tight again. This will add some volume to top of head. If you have a comb with a long, skinny handle, you can also use that to ever-so-gently lift the top of your hair (key word here: gently). 5. Twist and wrap ponytail around elastic, secure with pins, and spray with a strong hold hairspray.
Angelina Jolie Sexy Updo
Angelina Jolie's messy twist is super sultry for medium length hair. 1. Apply a volumizing mousse and blow dry hair using a large barreled round brush, lifting at the roots to create volume. 2. Finger brush dry hair away from forehead and to one side on the back of your head. Pin hair down to one side against scalp. 3. Take hair from the bottom and start twisting up, counterclockwise so you are twisting over the bobby pins already in place. Twist mid way up, pinning as you go. 4. Once mid-way up the twist, pull the ends (that are pointing towards the ceiling) down and tuck them into twist and secure. 5. Come back to the front of your hair and mess things up a bit with your fingers, making hair loose from your pinned twist and pulling out random pieces near your face - it will look like you just got your hair done but then rolled in the hay for an hour - super sexified.
Angelina Jolie Chic Updo
Angelina Jolie's slicked back bun updo is perfect if you need to get out the door fast. 1. Start by applying a small amount of medium hold gel to damp hair just around your crown, leaving the rest of your hair free of product. 2. No need to dry hair (we told you it was perfect) just simply comb hair away from your face and secure into a tight ponytail in the middle of your head, making sure to smooth down any fly-aways. 3. Twist your pony tightly and wrap it around the base of the tail. 4. Finish by tucking the loose end under the bun and securing with a couple of bobby pins that match your hair color.
