We talked to top celebrity hairstylists to find out the most glamorous evening styles for 2010:
A Chic, Messy Updo: "It's so chic and simple," says Kate Hudson's mane man, David Babaii, of her pretty but messy style. "Start with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray ($9.99) and rough dry your hair." He advises putting hair into a high ponytail, but instead of pulling it all the way through the band, leave part of it in so it's shaped like a bun. Then "pin the tail back into the hair and pull pieces out in front."
A Loose Side Braid: Long braids are now modern with height at the crown and over-the-shoulder placement. Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray ($19.95) to add hold and lift," explains Rachel McAdams's stylist Thomas Dunkin. Forgo the brush as you blow-dry. "It will look forced if it's too polished. Go with a part that's easy to find, and braid to the end."
Beachy Waves: "The key to this sexy look is not to overdo it," says Mara Roszak, a Tresemmé celebrity stylist who works with Zoë Saldana. We like spritzing Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($22) to boost natural texture. And to enhance the shape of your waves, finish with Tresemmé Anti-Frizz Secret Smoothing Crème ($4.99).
Hair Accessories: "Adding an accessory is a great, fun way to dress up your hair," says Eva Mendes's hairstylist Steeve Daviault, adding, "I found the feathers we used at Forever 21!" Get Mendes's look: Apply Klorane Dry Shampoo ($18) and tease your strands for texture and lift. "Pin your hair back into a bun or twist and place a hair piece on the opposite side of your part."
