Uma Thurman Romantic Updo
Uma Thurman's wavy chignon is a sexy way to wear wavy hair. Steal her style: 1. Work a curl-enhancing lotion through damp hair and blow dry with a diffuser, scrunching as you go. 2. Wrap the very top layer of your hair, and any strands that usually frame your face, around a half-inch curling iron to get more structured curls. Mist with hairspray. 3. Using fingers, comb and gather hair into a loose ponytail at the nape of your neck, securing it with an elastic. 4. Loop the pony into a bun, tucking in any loose ends. Pin into place with bobby pins that match your hair color. If pieces pop out, smile and let them be -- the messier, the hotter. 5. Mist with firm-hold yet touchable hairspray and pull a few face-framing tendrils out in front if you like. See More Uma Thurman Hairstyles

Nicole Richie Long, Blonde, Braided Updo with Bangs
Nicole Richie's loose updo and long bangs make a soft and romantic style. 1. Apply a texturizing lotion to damp hair, and part hair down the middle. Blow dry with a diffuser and a large round brush to add volume. 2. Set aside two, 2-inch sections of hair near the nape of your neck. Take the rest of your hair and pull it into a high ponytail. Take the ends of the pony and wrap and pin them around the base to create a bun. 3. Take each of the sections you set aside at the nape of your neck and braid them. Wrap the braids around the bun and pin in place. Or, you could use a braided extension and just wrap that around the bun. 4. Using a small amount of hair wax, style your bangs (which should also be parted down the middle) across your forehead and off to the side on each side. Add another dab of wax to end of bangs to give them a slight wave, and set the style with a misting of medium-hold hairspray. See More Nicole Richie Hairstyles

Run bangs through a straightener, add a small amount of hair wax and sweep them across your forehead and off to the side. 4.

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
