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. Work curl-shaping gel through hair and blow dry with a diffuser to bring out wavy texture. Using a brush on your bangs only, sweep them to the side and flip them out. 2. Make a deep side part and gather hair into a side ponytail (leave out your bangs). Secure with an elastic. 3. Loop the ponytail into a knot and secure in place with bobby pins. 4. Pull out a face-framing tendril or two opposite your bangs. Set the look with hairspray. See More Jessica Stroup 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.
Drew Barrymore Chic, Blonde Updo
Drew Barrymore's red carpet look is a sophisticated style for a special occasion. 1. To start, make sure you have plenty of product on hand, namely a strong-hold hairspray or spray gel and a hair wax to finish the look and help keep it in place. Also helpful: a friend to assist you, or at least keep you company. 2. Beginning with dry hair, part hair at the side and comb or brush it into a ponytail that sits halfway between the crown of your head and the nape of your neck, and slightly off to the left. Twist the ponytail around twice, to form a roll. 3. Tuck the ends under to bend the roll against your head, and tuck the roll inside itself and quickly pin into place. 4. Set the look with hairspray. 5. Use hair wax to smooth down any loose strands or flyaway hairs. 6. Depending on how elaborate your outfit is, a twist updo is also the perfect style for a pretty accessory like a crystal-encrusted comb or a fresh flower. See More Drew Barrymore Hairstyles
