Paris Hilton Straight, Blonde, Shag Hairstyle
Paris Hilton's hair is a perfect, low maintenance look for girls with short, straight hair with bangs. How to get it: 1. To start, apply smoothing cream (if you have wavy or curly hair) and blow dry hair and bangs straight using a paddle brush. 2. Then, go over your hair with a straightener, making sure no waves or curls have escaped unscathed. You're going to want your bangs straight, too. 3. Finally, rub some shine serum through your hair for extra shine, and lightly mist bangs in place with a hairspray. See More Paris Hilton Hairstyles

Mariska Hargitay Layered Hairstyle with Long Bangs
Mariska Hargitay's style is a perfect choice for fine, straight hair. What to do: 1. This look is all about the cut, so take this picture to your stylist and ask for a short, layered bob with long, sideswept bangs. 2. To do this 'do, use mousse at the roots of your hair and blow dry hair up at the roots to get some volume, then style straight. 3. Fix your bangs by holding them to one side, between your second and third fingers, as you dry. 4. For the finishing touch, put a little wax on your fingertips and piece out the ends of your hair. Keep the wax just on the ends or your style will fall flat.
Lisa Rinna Short Hairstyle with Sideswept Bangs
Lisa Rinna's feathery bangs are a great way to handle over-grown fringe. To get the look: 1. Brush damp bangs into one section and spray the top and bottom of them with styling spray. Then mist the rest of your hair with the same spray. 2. Using a Mason Pearson-style brush, blow dry your bangs to the left, and the right, back and forth until they're 80 percent dry. This helps knock out any bendy-ness so they end up smooth. 3. Finish blow drying bangs in the direction you want them to end up. 4. After you've styled the rest of your hair, brush the bangs into place, finger comb 'em (to break them up), then mist allover with flexible-hold hairspray.

Then switch to a Mason Pearson-style, boar-bristle brush and finish blow drying. Scoop hair up at the roots for volume (bangs, too), and be sure to dry it with a soft bend. Gently direct the ends outward, for a gentle flick. 3. Finish by pinching a bit of styling wax through the ends. Just enough to define them.
Lisa Rinna Shag Hairstyle with Bangs
Lisa Rinna's shaggy cut is perfect for finer hair or to soften a square face. To get the look: 1. For her playful style, mist damp hair with a texturizing spray and rough dry it with your hands only. This pumps up the sexy, disheveled factor, big time. 2. If your bangs aren't naturally straight, brush them side to side as you blow dry. (A Mason Pearson-style, boar-bristle brush is a great bang-tamer.) 3. Finish with a smear of styling paste. Rub it between your hands and fingers and rake them though your ends to play up the fun flicked-out vibe.

Kathryn Morris Medium-Length, Blonde, Shag Hairstyle
Kathryn Morris is sporting a classic shag cut that's sophisticated, thanks to the razored ends, and easy to style. Get her look: 1. Apply styling mousse and work throughout damp hair. Part hair to the left. 2. Using a large round brush, blow dry small sections of hair. Blow dry bangs to the left, blow ends of hair up (with brush on top of the hair) and pay special attention to hair at the crown of head, where you want the most volume. At crown, pick up very small sections, and, using the round brush, pull brush through strands slowly, beginning at the root and pulling through to the ends. 3. On the top and crown of head, use large hot rollers on sections of hair, leaving them in for just 10 to 15 seconds at a time (you're trying to create body and shape, not actual curls). 4. Use hair wax to separate pieces of hair at the ends, and lightly mist hair with a light-hold hairspray to set the look.
