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
Paris Hilton Curly, Blonde Half Updo for Round Faces
Paris Hilton's glamorous half updo is a great choice for a formal, dressy function. A.K.A. the perfect wedding hair. How to do it: 1. To start, apply a smoothing cream and blow dry hair straight, using a paddle brush. 2. Then, tease the hair at the crown of your head with a teasing comb until you get the height you want (which for this look, should be pretty high). 3. Smooth the top layer of hair (from ear to ear) over the teased section, making sure it's perfectly straight and smooth, and secure with pins at the back of your head. 4. Next, with a slender curling iron, curl 2-inch sections, and let cool to set the curls in place. 5. Finally run your hands through your hair to loosen the ringlets, and mist with a holding spray.

Mischa Barton Long, Curly, Sexy Hairstyle
Mischa Barton's sexy curls are a hot party look, from a prom to a wedding. Steal her style: 1. Starting with damp hair, work a volumizing mousse through your locks. 2. Part hair to one side, and, working in sections, blow dry hair with a diffuser and a large round brush. Pay special attention to the hair at the crown of your head, starting the brush at the root and slowly working it through to the ends, adding height and body to that section. Also use the round brush to blow dry the bangs forward, curling them under at the ends. 3. Once hair is dry, use a large-barrel curling iron or hot rollers to curl sections of hair all over sides and the back. 4. Finger comb the curls loose softly; you don't want to uncurl them, but you want to lift and separate them to add more body all over. If you want individual curls to stand out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingers and run it over those curls. Finish the look with shine spray to make it pop.
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.
Mandy Moore Long, Tousled Updo
Mandy Moore's chic updo works for a casual or more glam event. Steal her style: 1. Use a volumizing spray before blow drying hair with a diffuser, for maximum body. 2. Part dry hair on the side, pull it back into a ponytail halfway between the crown of your head and the nape of your neck and secure it with an elastic band. 3. Twist the end of the ponytail around the base of the ponytail loosely, and secure it into place with bobby pins. It's okay if it looks slightly messy; this is not a sleek look. In fact, you can even massage the bun with your hands to make it looser and more messy. 4. Using a small amount of hair wax, smooth down any hair strands that are flying out on the front and sides of your hair, and use hairspray to lock the look in place.
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.

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.
Lindsay Lohan Long, Wavy Half Updo
Lindsay Lohan's sexy half updo is all about illusions. Sexify your look: 1. Set hair with large rollers and release when cool. 2. Backcomb (tease) hair at the crown and set as you go with lots of strong-hold hairspray (or if you're a sucker for time-consuming hair experiments, stick a prop in there like a Velcro roller or a Bumpit and cover with teased hair). 3. Smooth top of hair over with a brush to cover the evidence. 4. Fasten long, wavy, clip-in extensions from ear to ear. This makes it look like you still have a lot of hair once you put the other half up. 5. Leaving a few face-framing pieces out, brush sides of hair back to cover the extension clips and pin into place. (Angle bobby pins up toward the center of your head.) 6. Set with more hairspray.
Lindsay Lohan Long Ponytail
Lindsay Lohan's bushy, side ponytail is a great way to salvage day-old curls. What to do: 1. If you're starting from scratch, set hair with hot rollers first, then release when cool. If you already have day-old curls, spritz roots with dry shampoo and brush through strands. 2. Part and brush hair neatly to one side, and create a ponytail behind one ear with a pretty elastic. (Only have ugly elastics? Leave a piece of hair out of the pony to wrap around the elastic instead, fastening the "cover-up" in place with a bobby pin.) 3. Pin bangs behind your ear (or as close as possible) and set the style with firm-hold hairspray.

Finger-comb curls to stretch them out, then mist with hairspray. 4. Gather hair into a side ponytail, leaving out a handful of tendrils to frame your face. Secure beneath one ear with an elastic. 5. Wrap one tendril back and around the elastic to cover it. Secure beneath your ponytail with a bobby pin.

Smooth the top half of your hair (leave out about two inches on the front and sides) back over the crown of your head to form the half-up portion. Puff forward with your fingers and secure with bobby pins, hair combs or a decorative clip. 4. Spot-curl any sections that are left hanging and set with hairspray.

Kate Winslet Chic, Blonde Updo
Kate Winslet's chignon is sleek and perfect on the surface but unruly from behind -- just how we like it. Get the look: 1. If you're hair isn't naturally straight, apply straightening balm and blow dry it straight with a jumbo-sized round brush. 2. Work a palm full of styling gel through hair, slick hair (and bangs) back with a comb. 3. Gather hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic just above ear level. 4. Twist the ponytail into a bun and pin into place, leaving the ends untucked. If a few pieces pop out, that's OK -- you want a little messiness back there.
Kate Bosworth Wavy, Formal Half-Updo
Kate Bosworth's wavy hairstyle can be done on naturally wavy hair or straight hair. What to do: 1. If your hair is wavy, apply a curl enhancing cream to start. If you hair is straight, apply a styling mousse to hold curls better instead. Blow dry with a diffuser to bring out curls. 2. Curl your hair using a curling iron, but leave out the ends -- you want a messy look. 4. Now pin hair back into a half updo. 3. Don't forget to pull out some strands near your ear and curl them.

To get the look, apply a curling cream and blow dry your hair at the roots with a diffuser -- no need to brush. 2. Once it's dry, create a dramatic side part.
