You always see celebs walk the red carpet with intricate updos. But what about hairstyles that could update your daily look? See 10 celebs sporting 10 springy hairstyles and tips from the pros on how to get each look!
Three words: EASY SEXY HAIR. Pay attention—this look can have you looking hotter than Rihanna’s trendy tousled waves at the Grammys. In less than half the time. Promise.
But you have to have at least a little natural wave to make it work.
Blowdryer with diffuser
Wide tooth comb
Pureology Illuminating Curl Stylist 24 Hour Shaping Lotion ($24 on Ulta.com)
Pureology Colour Stylist Anti-Breakage Twist Shine Texturizer ($20.99 on Sleekhair.com)
Pureology Colour Stylist Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray ($14.50 on Amazon.com)
Start with hair fresh out of the shower. Do not dry with blowdryer or towel. Instead, blot the water out.
TIP: Coarse terrycloth towels can disrupt curl patterns. Try a microfiber towel for less frizz! Sleeping on a microfiber pillowcase will also keep curls better.
Section the hair into two or three horseshoe-shaped sections around your head. Starting at the nape of your neck, twist in a small amount of Pureology Colour Stylist Illuminating Curl Stylist 24 Hour Shaping Lotion (maybe a couple pearls per section). Wrap sections around one or two fingers, depending on how much wave you have. Next, diffuse hair with blow-dryer on low to medium force and heat. Do not separate the hair as it dries. Instead, cup the curls in the diffuser, holding the nozzle several inches off the scalp. Dry hair to 90%.
TIP: Over-drying hair is a frizz catastrophe! When in doubt, stop sooner rather than later and let hair air-dry the rest of the way.
Finally, apply a nickel-size amount of Pureology Colour Stylist Anti-Breakage Twist Shine Texturizer and work into hands. Run the defining cream through waves to break up curls and add shine. If needed, use the 1-inch iron by coil-wrapping around the barrel, holding the ends loose to keep the organic feel. This trick is great to polish unruly shorter layers or fringe!

20 Ways To Look Hot This Holiday
Sport Shiny Hair
To get an attention-grabbing hairdo, celebrity stylist Mark Townsend says to add a large dollop of Dove’s Body and Lift Mousse ($4.29, Drugstore.com) to damp hair, and blow dry it with a round brush. Divide hair into 3-inch sections and spritz some flexible hold hairspray onto each section before wrapping it around a 2 inch curling iron. Add extra shine by rubbing a small amount of Dove’s Nourishing Oil Leave-in Smoothing cream ($5.59, Drugstore.com) through hair.

Most women give their razors a long break in the winter and keep their legs covered, but great looking stems are sure to get a second glance. Get smooth skin with the Venus Embrace razor ($10.99, Drugstore.com) and Prtty Peaushun ($36.00, B-glowing.com), a cream with light-reflecting particles that will firm skin and camouflage imperfections.
