To get the sleek look, apply a cocktail of two parts?Straight Sexy Hair Darn Straight?with one part?Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal?on towel dried hair, and then either use your fingers or a paddle brush to gently pull the hair flat as you blow dry, following the curves of the head, says Mapile.

. The young star s spiky crop with frosted tips was shocking at first, but it turns out she s a trendsetter.

To do this at home, she recommends starting with dirty hair or adding a bit of mattifying powder.

To make curls bounce back between shampoos, try wetting and applying a little con

. Katherine s layered waves update a classic 20s profile. When choosing a cut, remember that hair texture matters, and hair with some bend in it, like the actress , offers plenty of options. Women with wavy hair can more freely choose more layered cuts and razor techniques, says celebrity hairstylist Josue Perez from?Serge Normant at John Frieda. Women who have fine hair can add volume with a minimum graduation cut such as the bob look. Curly h
. In the wrong hands, this look could be a bit too little boyish, but Ginnifer s hair is just adorable. For round faces, the goal is to elongate the face so you would want more height on the crown of the head, says Perez.
. Brushed forward bangs and a bowl cut shape create a cool, rocker chick style for the Swedish singer.
. Caring for a short and sweet look like Carey s isn t easy. Short hair is typically healthier than long hair because your natural oils reach the ends when you brush, explains Perez. That means less time conditioning and detangling, but you ll need to dial back on the amount of product you use, since all those gels and cr?mes can weigh hair down and make it appear greasy.

Make like the?Mad Men?actress and mix things up by slicking hair back and adding lots of volume on top. Mapile suggests deploying different products to create varied finishes on short hair: shiny using serum or shine spray, matte by misting with beach spray, or wet courtesy of super powered gel.

. Short hairstyles can get a little one note, but you can change up any style with a pretty accessory, like an embellished headband or sparkly barrette.

. Loose waves like Wood s are simple and stylish. Heart shaped faces should be cut accentuating layers around the chin while layers around the cheeks should be avoided, says Perez.
