Pump Up the Volume

Kyra Sedgwick

Sleek, loose, pin-straight hair for after-five is so last season. Now bigger is better. Volume is in, so follow Kyra Sedgwick‘s lead and opt for a wild full mane for cocktail parties and more. To get this look, celebrity stylist Francky L’Official says, “Part your hair down the middle and apply a texturizing spray along the roots on different parts of your head. Blow-dry your hair upside-down until it is 60 percent dry. Then, stand up and use your fingers to create texture and volume through the length of your hair.” To get more oomph, try is Jonathan Product Create Root Volume Brushable Lifting Spray ($28, beauty.com).

Go From Day to Night

Sophia Bush

Scunci Bobby Pins

When you don’t have time to go home and change your clothes and your ‘do, L’Official suggests starting the day with a French twist. One Tree Hill’s Sophia Bush looks elegant, but it’s an easy style to achieve at home. Simply pull your hair back as if you were making a ponytail, and twist it from the bottom, tucking the end into the twist as you go. Then secure the twist with bobby pins and you have a sophisticated look in no time flat. To secure your French twist, pick up a package of Scunci Classic Pins ($1.29, walgreens.com). Because they come in blonde, brown and black they’ll blend in with your hair color and are the perfect “secret weapon” to keep any style secure.

    I hate how celebs can pull off the “messy hair” style so well

    I’m loving Kyra Sedgwick’s volume look!

    I need a stylist, I suck at doing these myself

  4. sabina says:

    Me too! Whenever I try to do whatever the stylist did at the salon, it never turns out right…

    Ha ha! Fern and Sabrina are so right! My older and younger sisters were/are stylists and that hair stylist gene completely skipped me :)

    I’m forever trying to get the beachy waves. May I share, though, my newest tip? I love dry shampoo. It gives volume and soaks up oils to keep it from looking greasy. My favorites are Pssssst spray dry shampoo, and Schwarzkopf Dust It powder.

    I have naturally wavy hair and have never been able to pull of the messy look. Cant’t figure out how to make the simple chignon look work either. It just looks messy, and not in a good way.
