Meg Ryan Short, Tousled, Curly Hairstyle
Meg Ryan's curls look like they've been slept on, and maybe not washed, and yours can look that way too. How to do it: 1. Apply a curl-defining mousse to damp hair and air dry until it's 80 percent dry, then use a blow dryer with a diffuser and your hands to dry the rest. Lift and twirl your curls or waves around your fingers as you dry it. 2. If needed, touch up a handful of curls with a curling iron. 3. Twirl a smear of styling cream through curls, and repeat a few times to get the grunge-level that you desire.
Mary J. Blige Funky, Layered Shag
Mary J. Blige's shag is a good choice for layered, medium length hair. What to do: 1. Apply a straightening cream and blow dry hair with a round brush, flipping your ends out. 2. Follow up with a flat iron to further straighten and flip. 3. Apply styling wax to your ends to keep them from falling limp and to get that piece-y texture.
Mandy Moore Long, Straight Hairstyle with Bangs
Mandy Moore's trendy style is perfect for a casual or more formal event, and her bangs soften her square-shaped face. To get the look: 1. Rub styling mousse throughout damp hair, focusing on the roots, to add extra volume. 2. Using a medium or large round brush, blow dry 1- to 2-inch sections of hair under (with the brush underneath the hair as you pull it through). Focus on the roots and the top layers, where you want the most volume. 3. With a hair straightener, smooth out any waves, curls or frizziness to help shape your look. 4. Using hair wax, separate bangs and arrange them all across your forehead and guide ends of hair under. Set the look with a light-hold hairspray.
Lindsay Lohan Long, Layered, Brunette Hairstyle with Bangs
Lindsay Lohan's multi-level waves are great for growing out a layered cut. To get the look: 1. Work a volumizing mousse through damp hair and blow-dry with a large round brush, flipping bangs in and layered ends out. 2. Smooth with shine serum and spritz with hairspray for a smooth finish. 3. Clip in long, wavy hair extensions at ear level. You want the clips to be hidden beneath the top layer of hair, which should match the color of the extensions perfectly. 4. If necessary, spot-curl to better blend the extensions in with your own hair (make sure you can heat-style your extensions before you put that blazing-hot curling iron on them). Or if you have time and a friend who's talented with shears, trim extensions to blend in with your layers.
Katie Holmes Chic, Short, Shag Hairstyle
Katie Holmes' straight, sleek hair is perfect for those with short hair who want a sophisticated, yet edgy look. Get the look: 1. If your hair isn't already straight, apply smoothing cream and blow dry hair straight using a paddle brush (make sure not to curl the tips under -- this isn't a bob). 2. Then, part your hair down the middle, almost to the back of your crown. 3. With a teasing comb, tease the hair at the back of your crown, then smooth the top layer over the teased section. 4. Take a curling iron and twist the front tips around the barrel for a little flip. 5. Finish with a shine serum and holding spray for the glossy-factor. See More Katie Holmes Hairstyles
