Nicole Richie Medium-Length, Blonde Ponytail
Nicole Richie's low ponytail and sweeping bangs make a sophisticated style. Get the look: 1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair. 2. Blow dry hair with a large paddle brush, brushing it under (with the brush under the hair as you pull it through). The paddle brush will help smooth out your hair. Blow dry bangs across forehead and off to the side. 3. Use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair on the sides, in front and in back. Lightly tease hair at the crown of your head for a little extra volume. Smooth top layer over it. 4. Leaving bangs free, pull rest of hair back into a ponytail, based slightly above the nape of your neck and to the side, and secure with an elastic band. 5. For bangs, apply a small amount of hair wax to sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. Set the look with a light-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles

Melinda Clarke Straight, Layered, Red Bob
Melinda Clarke's layered bob with bangs is a polished everyday look for straight hair. Steal her style: 1. Spritz your roots with a volumizing spray then use a boar-bristle brush to blow dry hair straight. 2. Use a large round brush to blow dry bangs. Don't create a curl, though -- WAY too 80s; just turn the brush enough to give a slight bend and some volume. 3. Rub a dollop of pomade between your thumbs and pointer fingers, then twist small sections of hair just at the ends to create definition.
Melinda Clarke Blunt, Red Bob
Melinda Clarke's side-swept bangs are a sweet touch on this simple style. What to do: 1. To get this look, apply a straightening cream then part hair deeply to one side. Use a paddle brush to blow dry straight. 2. When hair is dry, mist with a heat protectant spray, then run a straightening iron through hair. 3. If you have long bangs, tuck them behind your ear. Otherwise take a 2-inch section of hair from the front of your face and secure that behind your ear with bobby pins. 4. Rub some shine serum in your hands then very lightly smooth palms over the surface of your hair.
Madonna Brunette, Straight Bob
Madonna's bob has super-smooth, ultra-sleek strands and a defined center part. If you want this look, it's all about the cut. What to do: 1. Ask your hairdresser for a blunt haircut with no layers. 2. Start with a smoothing cream on damp hair and blow dry straight with a flat paddle brush. 3. Then, go over with a flat iron to give your hair shine and get it really straight. Be sure to keep the iron on the move. It shouldn't stay in one area for too long or you could fry your hair. 4. Spray your hairbrush with hairspray and gently brush through hair. See More Madonna Hairstyles
