Given their laid-back vibe, it's no wonder guys are most turned on by low-maintenance styles that feel natural. Try one of these warm weather styles and we bet your hair isn't the only thing he touches. Plus: Find out what men really think about your hair and makeup.
Why Guys Love It: The small pouf (and we're not talking The Snookie here) adds a subtle dose of glamour to any look. That's why it's such a hot red-carpet go-to. "Wearing your hair up bares your most seductive features, like your neck and shoulders," explains celeb stylist Ken Paves. Hilary Duff looks pretty yet punk with this 'do. Try these fresh new hairstyles for long hair.
How to Get It: Part dry, straight hair from above the arches of each brow back to the crown to create a mini ponytail. Twist the top of the tail, and push hair forward to create volume, then secure with a large barrette or bobby pins. Gather the rest into a bun and mist with a holding spray (try Vavoom Shapemaker Shaping Spray, $15).
2) Sexy Shag
Why Guys Love It: Jennifer Hudson shows off her neck and frames her face with this short bob. "Short and choppy, the new bob accentuates your cheekbones and eyes," says celeb stylist Oscar Blandi.
How to Get It: Start with a protective styling spray to maintain shine like Got2b Guardian Angel Protect N' Blow Out Lotion and Gloss Finish, $6. Then, divide hair into two-inch sections and blow-dry straight. Finish by using a flat-iron to flip out your ends slightly.

3) Pretty Pixie
Why Guys Love It: "Confident chicks don't need to hide behind long hair," says salon owner Roy Teeluck. Plus, soft, face-framing bangs come across as supersensual. Ginnifer Goodwin's peekaboo fringe is flirty and mischievous.
How to Get It: Use a lightweight smoothing styler and a natural bristle brush to blow-dry hair smooth and forward. For control, spread a wax-based pomade in your palms, then pat it from roots to ends. Tuck extralong pieces behind your ear with a bobby pin. Thinking about dying your hair? Watch this video first.
4) Relaxed Updo
Why Guys Love It: Nikki Reed's bun looks simple and elegant yet still touchable. The hair that falls into her face prevents the updo from looking too severe. "Men couldn't care less if your strands are perfectly styled and neat. In fact, he might like you more with some wildness or bedhead, since it shows you're carefree and relaxed," says Fisher.
How to Get It: Make a low side ponytail, leaving a few pieces loose around your face. Twist the length of your ponytail, and wrap it into a figure-eight shape - smoosh it up against your scalp, and tuck the ends into the loop. Insert a few hairpins or tiny barrettes to lock it all in place. Finish with a mist of light-weight hair spray that'll give you extra hold minus any stickiness, like Paul Mitchell Worked Up, $15.
