"I was really inspired by a classic set that still could swing and move," said Pantene hairstylist Danilo about the look he created for Dianna Agron. "She was wearing a strapless dress, so she wanted her hair down, but still off her face." A curly down 'do topped-off with a crystal and diamond brooch was just the solution.

"For the first year ever, I wasn't inspired by a decade. Instead, shapes and texture were really what I was thinking about," said Dove hairstylist Mark Townsend. He blew Lea Michele's hair dry, twisted in tiny ringlets with a 1" curling iron, and then pinned the hair back into a messy chignon, leaving out the layers in front.

Meester's gently waved strands were pulled into a low-key half updo for a soft and alluring look. Slightly bleached-out ends were the perfect accent to her chestnut hair color.

A deep side part and cheekbone skimming layers give Danes's hairstyle a sophisticated shape. Hairstylist Peter Butler teased the strands at the crown just enough to add lift and a tiny bit of retro sex appeal before pinning the length into a low, tidy bun.

Gone are the days of the delicately precise ballerina bun. Positioned right at the crown of the star's head, this version works thanks to an exaggerated size and a loopy, woven texture.
L.A. stylist Robert Ramos diffused Alba's hair to coax out its natural wave. Next, he gave her a center part, sectioned off hair from either side of the head and French-braided it. He made smaller plaits from her bottom layer of hair, wrapping them back toward the center and pinning them. "At the back of the head, the braids should be intertwined," he explains.
To achieve this effect, L.A. stylist Frank Galasso washed Sims's locks with voluminizing shampoo, followed by a bodybuilding mousse on the roots. After a quick towel-drying, he blew her hair straight with a round brush. Galasso twisted random strands before wrapping them around a 1" curling iron for loose waves. He pulled the sides into a small ponytail and pinned a thin section of hair around the elastic to conceal it.

N.Y.C. stylist Charles Baker Strahan curled Meester's hair before sectioning it into three closely clustered knots. To finish the undone look, he pulled out a few loose tendrils.
L.A. hairstylist David Babaii created this low-slung braid by blow-drying Hudson's hair straight and smoothing a quarter-size amount of David Babaii for Wildaid Hair Polish from roots to ends. Next, he loosely braided the hair at the nape of the neck and secured it with a clear elastic. Babaii finished the look by running a flat iron through her bangs and sweeping them to the side.
To create this romantic look, L.A. stylist Patrick Gagaille straightened Lilly's just-washed hair with a blow dryer and a round brush. Next, he curled small sections of hair with a 1" curling iron-leaving the roots flat and only styling the lower half of the hair. He sprayed each section with Catwalk Curls Rock Curl Booster for hold and applied a quarter-size amount of Davines Natural Wax to his hands and worked it through from root to tip. He completed the look with a shot of Sebastian Shaper Hairspray followed.
The key to this look, says N.Y.C. stylist Ursula Stephen, is all in the cut: heavy, side-swept bangs bring length to the front, while the back and sides are left short. Stephen blow-dried Rihanna's just-washed hair, combing and flat-ironing her bangs to one side. To create a piecey look in front, Stephen applied Pantene Pro-V Texturize Spray Wax with her fingers styled the look to give it a rocker vibe.
Bride Bonus: "Skip long veils-they can overwhelm short hair," says Stephen. A vintage pillbox hat with netting is "the perfect complement to this cut."
For this classic half-up look, N.Y.C. stylist Danilo misted a voluminizing spray on Cruz's roots before blowing the hair dry with a mixed bristle brush. To create body and texture, he used a 2" iron and set the sections by pin-curling them. Next, he gathered the top section of hair and backcombed it for extra height. He secured the upper-section with a bobby pin and let the rest fall free, while taming flyaways.
To add volume, celebrity stylist Adir Abergel sprayed Garner's still-damp hair with Fekkai Coiff Shape & Set Mist before blow-drying while using a round brush. Then he curled the hair with a 2-inch iron and spritzed it with Fekkai Sheer Hold hairspray. Gathering all of the hair except for the bangs, he wrapped it into a nape-of-the-neck bun, securing it with pins.
Bride Bonus: This romantic do looks gorgeous with a shoulder-baring dress and centered mantilla veil.
To create this "sexy and understated" chignon, Harry Josh, creative consultant for John Freida Collection, washed Pompeo's hair with Weather Works by Frizz-Ease from John Freida before blowing dry 2-inch sections. Once dry, he built up volume at the crown by spraying Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Hairspray from John Freida while backcombing the hair. Josh pulled the hair into a disheveled side bun 2 inches behind Pompeo's ear and secured it with bobby pins.
Bride Bonus: Accent this low-maintenance style with a jeweled clip or flower.
Walking the line between edgy and elegant, this disheveled chignon is the perfect way to soften the look of a structured gown. Abergel gave Beckinsale a center part and misted Frederic Fekkai Coiff Shape & Set Mist onto the roots to add texture. After blow-drying her hair, he used a 2-inch FHI curling iron to twist pieces at random. Next he teased at the crown to build height and gathered it into a low, messy bun, finishing the look with Frederic Fekkai Glossing Sheer Shine Mist.

This soft version of the classic twist lends a breezy vibe to the ballerina bun. "Pulling the hair straight back can look harsh," says L.A. stylist Hallie Bowman, who relaxed Russell's natural curls with Karastase Curl-Relaxing Nutri-Sculpt Mousse before blowing them dry. She then curled the hair with a half-inch iron, adding volume at the top and separating curls with Kiehl's Malleable Molding Paste. She then gathered the hair loosely and pinned it into a French twist, setting the style with firm-hold hairspray.
