Carrie Underwood Chic, Blonde Ponytail
Carrie Underwood's girly ponytail is so easy to do. Steal her style: 1. This look works best on dirtier hair, because it gives your pony some grip. Rub texturizing mousse through dry hair and let it set. 2. Use your fingers to comb your hair into a low ponytail. Secure it with an elastic, and tug at the back of your head to add a bit of volume. 3. Smooth your bangs behind your ear, and mist hair with a light-hold hairspray.

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.
Lindsay Lohan Romantic Updo for a Wedding
Lindsay Lohan's side chignon works great on day-old hair. To get the look: 1. Gather hair into a side pony, leaving half of your hair out at the front. Secure with an elastic. 2. Curl ponytail with a 1-inch curling iron. 3. To get a bit of texture, grab random sections of the ponytail and tease them with a comb, then gently smooth out with a brush. Mist with hairspray. 4. Tie the ponytail into a knot, pinning into place with as many pins as it takes. If a few strands pop out, leave them. You want a slightly messy finish. 5. Part the front of your hair in the center and gather the sides loosely back, wrapping ends that are long enough around the elastic to cover it. Pin into place. 6. Set with more hairspray.
Lindsay Lohan Romantic, Brunette Updo
Lindsay Lohan's wispy low bun is perfect for date nights. Steal her look: 1. Blow dry hair straight with a round brush and apply shine serum. 2. Backcomb (tease) hair at the crown of your head and set with hairspray. Smooth the top with a comb or paddle brush. 3. Pull hair back into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, securing with an elastic and leaving out 2-inch sections (to frame your face) plus a 1-inch section of hair underneath. 4. Wrap the sections of hair that were left out of the ponytail around a one-inch curling iron. 5. Start making a bun by pulling the ponytail through the elastic -- but not all the way through. The end of the pony should be sticking out of the bun, close to your neck. 6. Wrap the section that was left out beneath the ponytail around the elastic to disguise it. Secure with a bobby pin.
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.
