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.
Lisa Rinna Sexy Shag Hairstyle
When Lisa Rinna dresses up, she goes for a more polished finish. Steal her style: 1. To get the look, apply a lightweight hair gel and blow dry to 80 percent with your hands. 2. 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.
Katie Holmes Short, Blunt, Brunette Hairstyle
Katie Holmes' short, blunt hair is a dramatic style if you're going to a formal occasion and want something a little out of the ordinary. What to do: 1. To start, apply a straightening cream to damp hair or an anti-frizz serum if your hair is already stick-straight. 2. Then, blow dry your hair straight with a paddle brush. 3. Next, go over your hair with a straightener, making sure all the waves are out. 4. Then, tease the hair at the back of the crown of your head with a comb (though nothing too drastic). Smooth the top layer of hair over the teased section. 5. Finally, create a side part, and apply pomade or shine serum, and tuck hair behind ears to finish off the look.

Katie Holmes Sexy, Brunette Bob
Katie Holmes' show-stopping bob is ideal for those with short hair that want a really dressy look. What to do: 1. If your hair isn't already straight, apply straightening cream to damp hair. 2. Then, clip up the top half your hair and use a round brush to dry the lower section, piece by piece. When the brush gets to the tips, twist your wrist at the end to curl it under slightly. Then dry the top section. 3. Then, tease the hair at the crown of your head with a comb (only a little, refrain from tease-overkill). 4. Smooth the top layer of hair over the teased section. 5. Finally, create a side part -- make sure it's very severe -- then finish with a light holding spray so that the side part stays in place. See More Katie Holmes Hairstyles
Jessica Stroup Brunette Updo
Jessica Stroup's chic updo works perfectly on straight, layered hair with long, sideswept bangs. Steal her style: 1. If your hair is already straight, great. If not, just blow dry it straight with a paddle brush (use straightening balm if necessary). 2. Gather hair into a bun, either straight back or to the side, leaving your bangs and a few side pieces out. Secure with an elastic and bobby pins. 3. Make a deep side part with leftover pieces and flatiron them until they are super sleek. 4. Mist with shine spray if you want an extra glossy finish. Then set the entire look with hairspray.
