Jessica Simpson Wedding Updo
Jessica Simpson's classic and sophisticated updo is great for straight, long hair with no bangs. What to do: 1. Pull dry hair back with a hair band in a ponytail, leaving a little volume at the crown. 2. Smooth flyaways using just a dab of styling paste rubbed between your palms. Don't use too much -- your hair will end up looking greasy. 3. Tease the base of the ponytail and then smooth top portion by gently brushing with a boar-bristle brush. 4. Twist ponytail to the right and then loosely twirl ponytail clockwise around the base, then pin into place with bobby pins. 5. Finish with maximum hold hairspray and then a bit of shine spray for that extra glimmer in the moonlight.

Pin with bobby pins up and down left side of twist and make sure to hide the bobby pins well. 4. Sweep bangs to the left and spray entire head with maximum hold hairspray.

Finish with shine spray all over.
Jessica Simpson Sophisticated Ponytail
Jessica Simpson's ponytail is a new twist on an old standby and is especially cute with long bangs. To get the look: 1. Spray hair with a volumizing spray, then blow dry hair in sections using a medium-barrel round brush. The more volume you can create at the root here, the better. 2.

Pull hair into a low ponytail at nape of neck and secure with hair band or clip. 4. Finish with medium hold hairspray used sparingly in the crown area (where you teased).
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.
Angelina Jolie Wavy Half Updo

Section off the top half of your hair and tease the section near the crown of your head from some volume. 3. Sweep top section of hair up and back from forehead with a brush, smoothing over teased area (no need for everyone to know you created a rat’s nest to get that volume). 4. Secure hair with barrette and spray top of head with maximum hold hairspray.
Angelina Jolie Sexy Updo
Angelina Jolie's messy twist is super sultry for medium length hair. 1. Apply a volumizing mousse and blow dry hair using a large barreled round brush, lifting at the roots to create volume. 2. Finger brush dry hair away from forehead and to one side on the back of your head. Pin hair 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 mid way up, pinning as you go. 4. Once mid-way up the twist, pull the ends (that are pointing towards the ceiling) down and tuck them into twist and secure. 5. Come back to the front of your hair and mess things up a bit with your fingers, making hair loose from your pinned twist and pulling out random pieces near your face - it will look like you just got your hair done but then rolled in the hay for an hour - super sexified.
Angelina Jolie Romantic Half Updo
Angelina Jolie's lightly tousled half updo is perfect for a date or the prom. 1. For straight or slightly wavy hair, start by towel drying hair and apply a lightweight texturizing product while hair is still slightly damp. 2. Roughly blow dry with your head upside down (for volume) while gently finger combing. 3. Once hair is fully dry, section off your scalp into two parts by parting horizontally from ear to ear. Make sure to not brush your hair and to pull it away from your face with just your hands - you want it to look slightly messy. 4. Finally secure the top section with a barrette and spray with a medium hold hairspray.

With the bottom half of your hair, use a medium barreled curling iron and twist big strands around the barrel letting hair sit on the iron for about 10 seconds - just long enough to curl, not scorch, your hair. 5. Pull out thick strands around your face from the top of your hair and spray with a medium hold hairspray.
