Blow-dry with a volumizing spray, then braid your hair and secure with an elastic band. Get the sexy, messy look by using your fingers to gently pick out some pieces and loosen the style. If you have layers, pull some strands out in the front as well, advises New York Hair Stylist Alejandra. Then twist your braid up into a bun and pin to secure like Jessica Simpson.

Straight hair has a tendency to go flat and limp. Recharge your look by styling with a dry shampoo, which blasts volume and texture into the root of hair, says New York Stylist Oscar Blandi. Finish by turning ends inward with a flat iron, and you've faked a professional salon blow out like Jennifer Aniston's trademark tresses.

If you're headed to a special event and want some of Kim Kardashian's Old Hollywood glamour, nothing works better than hot rollers, says New York Hair Stylist Lisa Chiccine. Lightly spritz each section with hair spray before wrapping each curler, and be sure to set until all of the rollers cool down completely - usually about 15 minutes. Unwrap, finger comb, and lightly spritz all over for extra hold. Hot rollers give both short and long styles lots of soft, sexy movement.

Look in your jewelry box for brightly beaded bracelets that can double as a ponytail or chignon wrap. Or use jeweled clips like Katy Perry. If putting hair up, first secure your hair with an elastic and a couple of bobby pins on the side to keep wisps in place if necessary. Then add your jewelry piece of choice for a fun splash of color and adornment, says Miami Hair Stylist Randi Petersen.

Get envious curls by adding healthy, shiny shape definition like Minnie Driver. Combine a flexible hold gel with your favorite curl cream and distribute through wet hair. Then finger twirl each section and let air dry, suggests New York Hair Stylist Mark Garrison.

Parting your hair to the side like Kelly Ripa instantly adds volume and lift and brightens your entire face. Magnify that lift by back-combing sections of your crown and then pin the rest of your hair back in a messy chignon bun, says New York Hair Stylist Lisa Chiccine. This style works great for both day and evening!

If you've ever been tempted to chop off your long locks a la Katie Holmes, you'll love this cooling bare neck style. Gather your hair, twist it, then roll under towards the nape, like a horizontal French twist. Secure with bobby pins and spray with a medium hold hairspray. If longer pieces hang around your face, pin them back. The finished look is a chic, modern messy bob - "Your friends will wonder where you got the guts to cut off all your hair!" says New York City Hair Stylist Adrian De Berardinis.

Embellished headbands like the one seen here on Posh are a fun and super easy way to change your entire look. Simply pair your favorite with any chignon, French twist or ponytail to add interest. To modernize the look, back comb a bit of volume in your crown before styling and adding your accessory, says LA Hair Stylist Anthony Cristiano.

Blow dry your hair with a diffuser until curls are 80% dry. Then spritz sea salt spray all over and braid sections of hair to set with sexy waves. You can sleep on it or wait until you're fully dry, and then gently finger comb the braids out and apply a drop of serum to the ends to seal. To make your own sea salt spray, combine 2 tablespoons of sea salt with 8 ounces of water and shake until dissolved, suggests Miami Hair Stylist Randi Petersen.
