Keyshia Cole Short, Formal Hairstyle
Keyshia Cole's swept-back, twisted hairstyle is a fun, faux updo for short hair. Steal her style: 1. Start by blow drying your hair straight, brushing it toward the back as you dry. 2. Once hair is dry, lift a 2-inch section and tease just at the roots. Next, loosely twist the section before pinning it in place. 3. Continue teasing, twisting, and pinning sections until all hair at the crown is off of your face. 4. Spray with hairspray to hold.
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
Cate Blanchett Party Updo
Cate Blanchette's twisted bun, and glitzy hair accessory, puts a fun, flirty spin on the simple updo. What to do: 1. To start, put a dollop of mousse on your palms and rub through your hair. 2. Twist some random sections of hair and pin down with bobby pins. 3. Pull all of your hair into a low bun, letting strands fall out near the nape of your neck (which totally says you're stylish without looking like you're trying too hard). 4. Add a snazzy headband or clip on an accessory below the bun.
