Katie Price Funky, Black, Coarse Updo
Katie Prices' sky high updo can work whether your hair is short or long. See how to get the look: 1. Before you begin, part your hair to the side and leave out a section of hair (including your bangs and shorter layers) at the front. 2. Now use a teasing comb to backcomb the bottom half your hair, section by section. Gather all of it up into a high, messy bun and pin it down 3. If you don't want to risk damaging your hair with all the teasing, just buy a hairpiece and clip it on. 4. Remember that section of hair you left out? Blow dry it using a round brush and curve it around your face for an extra chic touch. 4. Spray your updo generously with hairspray to keep it from falling flat.

Tyra Banks Funky Updo
Tyra Banks' updo is a great daytime look for straight hair. What to do: 1. Apply texturizing lotion on damp hair, which will help keep the updo in place. Blow dry hair with a paddle brush for maximum straightness. 2. Using a straightening iron, smooth out 2-inch sections all over your head. 3. Gather hair -- no need to be precise, as the look is meant to look super casual -- and pull back into a ponytail. Twist the end of the ponytail around the base and secure with bobby pins. 4. Pull a couple of random strands loose in front and arrange them to frame your face. See More Tyra Banks Hairstyles
Tyra Banks Funky, Party Updo
Tyra Banks' eye-catching updo is a long-haired look that says you -- and your hair -- are ready to party. Get the look: 1. Apply texturing lotion and blow dry hair using a paddle brush ... volume is not as important with this style as making sure your hair is straight, shiny and has some texture to maintain an updo. 2. Once hair is dry, use a straightening iron to smooth out 2-inch sections of hair, all over your head. 3. Pull hair, very tightly, into a ponytail and secure it on top of your head. 4. Take individual sections of your ponytail, apply pomade to them, and roll them into a loop that protrudes from the ponytail and secure them in place with pins. Repeat until all but one section of the ponytail has been looped ... leave that tail of the 'tail hanging off to the side, and secure the, ahem, structure with a generous amount of hairspray.
