Gwyneth Paltrow Blonde, Medium-Length Hairstyle
Gwyneth Paltrow's sexy, loose hair with a middle part is a great way to add movement to fine hair. Get her look: 1. Wash hair with a clarifying shampoo and conditioner to get rid of any product buildup you have been accumulating. This will allow for your hair to be lightweight and have bounce. 2. With a large-barreled round brush give you hair a good blow dry. Avoid the urge to be lazy on this one, spend time lifting at the roots and rolling hair under with the brush while appling heat down the shaft of the hair. 3. Once hair is fully dry, create your middle part and on each side take a 2-inch section from the top and roll up and under onto large hot rollers. Let them sit for about 10 minutes. 4. Let both rollers down and mist entire head with a lightweight hairspray. See More Gwyneth Paltrow Hairstyles

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.
