Brush hair back and create a side ponytail behind your earlobe. Wind the tail into a bun and anchor it with bobby pins. 4. Mist allover with flexible-hold hairspray.
Kate Winslet Wavy Half Updo
Kate Winslet's wedding- and prom-friendly half updo is super flattering for almost anyone, without looking too young or old. Steal her style: 1. If your hair is too short, get some extensions to help you fake this 'do (your hair should be at least six inches long, though). 2. Work styling lotion through slightly damp hair, comb through and set your entire head with pin curls. Do this by wrapping sections of hair around your finger and then pin them to your scalp. (You can also use hot rollers on dry hair.) 3. Release and finger-comb waves. 4. Touch any curls up with a curling iron if needed. Pull the top section of hair back and pin into place, leave a face-framing piece on each side of your head.

Jessica Simpson Medium, Curly Hairstyle
Jessica Simpson's casual and relaxed curly look can be created in medium to long hair that is straight, wavy or curly (well, that last one is pretty obvious). How to do it: 1. On damp hair, create a center part. Be careful to make it purposely uneven; achieving messiness is key. 2. Wrap 1-inch sections of hair around your first finger (pointing at the ceiling really works best). Pin curled sections to your head with bobby pin; repeat until whole head is done. 3. Blow dry sections until completely dry and then unpin sections when cool. 4. Tousle hair gently with fingertips and spray with flexible hold hairspray.
Jessica Simpson Blonde, Curly Hairstyle
Jessica Simpson's playful center-parted curls are a no-brainer for blondes with shoulder-length hair. Steal her style: 1. Part dry hair down the middle. Make the part a little sloppy on purpose. 2. Divide hair into three sections: top, middle and bottom. Secure each section with clips or (gasp!) scrunchies if you still have them (believe it or not, scrunchies are great to avoid creating a crimp in your hair during styling). 3. Using a small-barrel curling iron, curl each section, beginning with the bottom and moving up. Alternate the way you curl the hair around the curling iron: some pieces curl clockwise around the barrel; other pieces curl counter-clockwise. 4. Spray each curled section with maximum hold hairspray from about a foot away. Don't use too much hairspray -- you don't want your hair to look crunchy -- and you're ready to bounce out the door.
Anna Kendrick Romantic Updo
Anna Kendrick's wispy hairstyle looks great on wavy medium length hair for a party. 1.

With a medium barrel curling iron, curl bottom 4 to 6 inches of hair. 3. With a medium hold hairspray, spritz curls. 4. Finger comb hair back into ponytail and twist into a loose bun around the base of tail, securing with bobby pins. 5. Pull out a couple of random tendrils around your face.
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 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 Romantic Half Updo
Angelina Jolie's lightly tousled half updo is perfect for a date or the prom. 1. For straight or slightly wavy hair, start by towel drying hair and apply a lightweight texturizing product while hair is still slightly damp. 2. Roughly blow dry with your head upside down (for volume) while gently finger combing. 3. Once hair is fully dry, section off your scalp into two parts by parting horizontally from ear to ear. Make sure to not brush your hair and to pull it away from your face with just your hands - you want it to look slightly messy. 4. Finally secure the top section with a barrette and spray with a medium hold hairspray.
Adrienne Bailon Long, Tousled Updo
Adrienne Bailon's sexy updo is the perfect look for a casual summer evening. 1. Use a volumizing spray before blow drying hair with a diffuser, for maximum body. 2. Part dry hair on the side and pull it back into a twist. Secure it into place with bobby pins. 3. Sweep the bangs off to one side, and, using a large-barrel curling iron or hot rollers, curl for five to 10 seconds. You want a slight wave in the bangs, not a full-on curl. 4. Using a medium or small-barrel curling iron, add curls to small sections of the hair hanging down in back. Create a mixture of waves and slightly tighter curls; you want your hair to look like it's totally natural (yeah, yeah, it's that whole looks easy but actually takes a ton of work deal). Use a medium-hold hairspray to secure the style in place. Link See More Adrienne Bailon Hairstyles
