Taylor Swift Long, Wavy, Blonde Hairstyle
Try Taylor Swift's romantic waves for dates and weddings -- they'll make everyone swoon. To get her look: 1. Coat hair with curling lotion or mousse and comb through, then blow dry with a diffuser. 2. Make a deep side part and begin wrapping 2-inch sections of hair around a triple-barrel curling iron, curling hair in the same direction all the way around your head. (Don't have one of those gadgets? You can use a 3/4-inch curling iron, too -- just hold it sideways to get a zigzag-like, spiral curl.) 3. Smooth with shine serum and mist with hairspray to set.

Michelle Williams Blonde Updo
Michelle Williams gets her bohemian on with this braided bun. To steal her style: 1. Start with wavy, blow dried hair. (Sleep in braids if your hair is straight, then undo.) 2. Tease roots at the crown and spray with volumizer for lift. 3. Leaving out front section (including bangs and strands that will frame your face), loosely braid one side of your hair back toward the nape of your neck and secure with an elastic -- any kind. 4. Repeat on the other side. 5. Join the braids and wrap them into a bun, tucking ends under to hide the elastics. Pin into place. (If your hair isn't long enough to make a bun, cross the ends up and into the opposite braid, the pin them so the ends are hidden. Set with hairspray.
Katherine Heigel Blonde, Sophisticated Updo
Katherine Heigel's sleek updo works best for a formal, evening occasion. Tips to get this look: 1. If your hair is damp, dry it completely straight using a paddle brush. 2. Create a side part with your comb (don't make it go back too far), and secure with a hairspray. 3. For added height, use a teasing comb to tease the hair at the back of your crown. Then smooth the top layer (closest to the part). 4. Finally, twist all your hair back into a bun in the mid-back of your head and secure with clips. Then, spray any flyaways with holding spray (remember, the look here is sleek).
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.
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.

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.
Jessica Stroup Straight, Brunette Updo
Jessica Stroup's sexy-yet-casual updo is super versatile for layered haircuts -- wear it anywhere. To steal her look: 1.

Pull out a face-framing tendril or two opposite your bangs. Set the look with hairspray. See More Jessica Stroup Hairstyles
Ashlee Simpson Blonde, Tousled Updo
Ashlee Simpson's tousled 'do is party-perfect. Get her look here: 1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair and comb through. 2. Blow dry straight (but not pin straight, so don't waste too much time on perfection) with a vent brush, lifting at the roots for volume on top. Direct bangs to the side. 3. Section out a chunk of hair on either side of your face, and loosely gather the rest back into low pony, or chignon, and secure at the nape of your neck. 4. If you hair doesn't have a natural wave, add one at the front with a curling iron, but just at the ends.
