Lauren Conrad Straight, Chic, Blonde Ponytail
Lauren Conrad's side pony is sweet and chic at the same time. See how to get the look: 1. Apply smoothing cream to damp hair and blow dry straight using a paddle brush. 2. Use a flat iron on the bottom half of your hair to get it extra straight for this look, and spritz it with shine spray to get it super sleek. 3. Part your hair to the side, bring all of your hair over one shoulder and tie it into a ponytail under your ear. 4. Hair too short? Try adding a ponytail extension. Easy peasy.
Kate Winslet Chic, Blonde Updo
Kate Winslet's chignon is sleek and perfect on the surface but unruly from behind -- just how we like it. Get the look: 1. If you're hair isn't naturally straight, apply straightening balm and blow dry it straight with a jumbo-sized round brush. 2. Work a palm full of styling gel through hair, slick hair (and bangs) back with a comb. 3. Gather hair into a ponytail and secure with a clear elastic just above ear level. 4. Twist the ponytail into a bun and pin into place, leaving the ends untucked. If a few pieces pop out, that's OK -- you want a little messiness back there.
Julia Stiles Party Updo
Julia Stiles' uber-casual updo would be great for a casual get-together. Steal her style: 1. Blow dry damp hair straight using a paddle brush. 2. Tease the hair at the crown for a little extra volume. 3. Pull back hair into a French twist by twisting all your hair to the right while pulling the ends of your hair up toward the ceiling and pinning in place. The messier the better in this step. 4. Loop ends over and tuck into French twist, pinning in place and use a bit of spray shine to glam it up a bit.
Jessica Simpson Sophisticated Updo
Jessica Simpson's sophisticated updo with long, side-swept bangs really draws attention to beautiful high cheekbones. Steal her style: 1. Flip head upside down and blow dry hair completely using a paddle brush. 2. Tease hair -- and don't be shy here, the more you tease, the better this will look. Smooth top layer by gently brushing. 3. Gather hair at nape of neck and gently twist, bringing ends of hair toward the ceiling and tucking the ends into the twist. Pin with bobby pins up and down left side of twist and make sure to hide the bobby pins well. 4. Sweep bangs to the left and spray entire head with maximum hold hairspray.
