Malin Akerman Wavy, Blonde, Chic Hairstyle
Malin Akerman's soft waves totally work for straight or wavy hair. Get this look at home: 1. To give your hair volume apply a mousse or volumizer before you dry. If you have wavy hair, use a paddle brush to blow dry it straight. 2. Once your hair is totally dry, make a side part. Then, curl the bottom section of your hair with a medium-barrel curling iron. You can pin the curls as you go or just leave them loose. 3. Once the curls are cool, keep away from the brush (that's an order!). Simply separate them into waves with your fingers. 4. Smooth on a drop of shine serum and you're all set. See More Malin Akerman Hairstyles

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.

Secure the pony at the nape of your neck with an elastic. 4. Braid or twist the ponytail to wrap it around the base. Secure with bobby pins. 5. Twist the hair you left out back and over the top of the bun. Pin into place. 6. Tame flyaways with finishing cream and apply hairspray for extra hold.
Julia Stiles Party Updo
Julia Stiles' uber-casual updo would be great for a casual get-together. Steal her style: 1. Blow dry damp hair straight using a paddle brush. 2. Tease the hair at the crown for a little extra volume. 3. Pull back hair into a French twist by twisting all your hair to the right while pulling the ends of your hair up toward the ceiling and pinning in place. The messier the better in this step. 4. Loop ends over and tuck into French twist, pinning in place and use a bit of spray shine to glam it up a bit.
