1. STRAIGHT TALK
"Beautiful, shiny hair shows off the architecture of the cut. I straightened the hair with an iron, but it still has volume."
Styling Secret: Kérastase Ciment Thermique, which defrizzes without weighing down hair. Put it on damp hair before blowdrying to "double the volume."
2. PONY EXPRESS
"Layers add volume, but they have to be long enough so that you can do a side part or pull them back into a ponytail. You need a bang that reaches the cheekbones."
Styling Secret: Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray applied on the roots adds volume and stickiness, giving hair the strength to hold the style.
3. SWEPT AWAY
"This style takes a classic updo to the extreme — '40s Hollywood glam with an '80s twist. I love having the contrasting textures of slick and dry mixed together."
Styling Secret: Comb Matrix Biolage Sculpting Jelly through hair for a wet-looking sleekness, especially on the sides.
4. NEW WAVES
"This is a beachy, tousled style. You want the hair to look a little dirty, but you don't ever want it to be greasy or sticky."
Styling Secret: When spritzed on damp hair, TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray adds texture when you blowdry.
5. WORKING CURLS
"For these frizzy, sexy curls, I used a Hot Tools 3/8-inch iron. Too many perfect blonde curls look like wedding hair."
Styling Secret: Keep the ends polished with L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Gloss Wax. If they get too frizzy, the hair doesn't look healthy anymore.
