Photo by Matt Baron/BEImagesGET THE LOOK: "We wanted to keep Lauren's hair young and playful for the Teen Choice Awardsso we opted for a beachy bohemian look to complement her long flowy dress, says Christine Symonds, celebrity stylist at Warren-Tricomi in L.A., who created this fresh look. By keeping the hair simple, it played up her dress instead of overdoing it.
INSIDER TRICK: Keep the waves loose and natural, says Symonds, who used a one-inch curling iron and wrapped large sections around it to get the subtle curl. Then she created two loose braids on either side of the center part and finished with Redken Hairspray #18 and some Redken Vinyl Glam Spray.

Penelope Cruz. Photo by Andrew H. Walker/Getty ImagesGET THE LOOK: Penelope Cruz is very into black eyeliner right now, reveals makeup artist Genevieve Herr, who created this subtly smoldering look. To counterbalance her heavily-rimmed eyes, Herr layered two lip colors (a dusty pink and anude) from Edward Bess to get a perfectly complementary shade of pink.
INSIDER TRICK: When layering lip products, start with the darker shade, then layer with the lighter or clear hue. Layering with a nude or beige shade is a good way to tone down a too-heavy lip color.

Cameron Diaz. Photo by Jun Sato/WireImageGET THE LOOK: Hair color this natural comes with some planning. It's important to tell your colorist that you want to see contrast, says Amanda George, co-owner of L.A.'s Neil George salon, where Cameron Diaz has her hair done. You should see definition between the highlight color and your own color so you don't have one solid shade.
INSIDER TRICK: George says, It's best to have foiled highlights with a little painting on the ends to achieve the look. And get touch-ups every five to six weeks to keep it fresh.

Kelly Ripa. Photo by Humberto Carreno/StartraksGET THE LOOK: It was the best of both worlds for Kelly Ripa. Thanks to her longtime hairstylist, Oscar Blandi, she got the glamour of wearing her hair down without the stickiness of hair falling on the back of her neck in hot, hot, hot summer weather. INSIDER TRICK: To create balance, Blandi created a side part and gathered Ripa's hair into a ponytail on the opposite side of the head. "We were trying to create a very romantic look with her hair down, so I let let her soft waves fall over one shoulder," says Blandi.-Polly BlitzerCheck out In Style contributing editor Polly's Web site, beautyblitz.com
