Vivica Fox Formal Updo with Braids and Twists

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.

Molly Sims Wavy Updo
Molly Sims' updo is great for medium-length blond hair and really shows dimension and shine. Get her look: 1. Create a deep side part on clean dry hair. 2. Create waves in hair by using a "waver" on dry hair. These are like "crimpers" from the 80s but instead of crimping -- you get waves. 3. Spray all over waves with flexible-hold hairspray. 4. Pull hair back into a bun by making a ponytail and then twisting clockwise around it, pinning pieces in place with bobby pins. Leave plenty of strands out to frame your face and give it that messy feel.
Liv Tyler Brunette Updo
Liv Tyler's easy updo works best on straight, medium to long hair with long bangs. What to do: 1. Begin with perfectly straight hair (do a run-through with a flat iron if you must). Rub some shine serum between your hands and smooth over hair to get extra shine. 2. Part hair to the side. 3. Tease roots at the crown for a little lift, spritz with hairspray and smooth over with a comb. 4. With the exception of your bangs, which should be neatly swept to the side, pull hair back into a mid-level pony. Secure with an elastic. 5. Wind your ponytail into a bun and pin into place, tucking in any loose ends. Mist with hairspray.

Katie Cassidy Formal, Wedding Updo
Katie Cassidy's formal updo is an elegant choice for a bride or bridesmaid. Steal her style: 1. To get the look, apply a smoothing serum and straighten hair first with a blow dryer and then using an iron. 2. Next, tie hair up into a high ponytail, brushing out bumps as you pull up. Sleek is what we're going for. 3. Separate your ponytail into sections and smooth gel through each. Form a loop with each section, criss-crossing them over each other. Secure each section with bobby pins, tucking them into the bun so they're hidden. Save one last section to wrap around the base of the updo. 4. Mist generously with hairspray -- definitely don't want it falling apart on your big day.
