Try this sexy new style on your next night out using our handy how-to guide.

You will need:

  • Hair gel or coconut oil
  • Hairspray
  • A comb (the finer the comb teeth, the better)
  • Bobby pins

Instructions

1. Start with slightly wet hair. You can either wash your hair and wait until it is partially dry, or using a spray bottle, spritz some water over your hair to make it damp.

2. Using a comb, separate the sections of your hair. Start first with the hair on one side of your head, around and above your ear. Rub some gel/oil between your hands and apply it to the top of the section, near the roots of your hair, combing through with fingers. Comb back this section of the hair, pinning at the back to keep it secure. Repeat with sections on the other side, and top of the head.

Tip: Experiment with your part – you can keep most of your hair to one side, or slick it all back like Kim Kardashian (pictured above).

3. Complete with a fine coat of hairspray. Don’t forget to carry some gel with you throughout the day for touch-ups!

5 On-Trend Celebrity Hairstyles To Copy

Thinking of getting a new hair cut or color? These five cool celebrity hairstyles will give you plenty of inspiration to take to your stylist.

Those with medium to long hair can easily pull off the romantic style that actress Kerry Washington wore to the Oscars recently. This hairstyle is both sleek and soft, with sexy waves and a sleek look around the face. Since the top half of the hair is pulled back, the face is able to take center stage in this celebrity hairstyle. A side part and sweeping bangs that are pulled back behind the ear allow whoever is wearing this hairstyle to get things done while still looking good. This style works best on women with straight or wavy hair. Those with straight hair can mimic Kerry’s soft waves using a wand or curlers.

As far as color goes, the ombre trend is really taking off, and actress Rachel Bilson is the perfect example. Rachel’s chocolate brown hair fades into golden near the ends, giving it a sun kissed look. She adds glamour to the hairstyle by teasing it for added volume and curling it for texture. The result is big, sexy hair that has a gorgeous two-tone appearance. This is a style that is ideal for the evening, such as an intimate dinner or a night of dancing. This is one celebrity hairstyle that brings drama and attracts attention.

Singer Miley Cyrus successfully pulls off a short style that is actually very versatile. The sides are cut close to the scalp and the top of the hair is left long. Using pomade or gel, the hair on top can be styled into bangs that swoop down over the face, or back, allowing for the eyes to shine. Miley’s bleach blond longer locks contrast with the natural brown of the shorter hair on the side, giving the hairstyle a young and fresh look. Since the hair on top is not much to work with, this is still an easy style to achieve for women with curly hair.

Long hair will always be in style, and for those that don’t have it naturally, there are extensions. Kim Kardashian pulls off this sexy look by blending the length of her natural hair seamlessly so that the extensions look real. A middle part and long, face-framing bangs complete this stunning look. While Kim pulls off the hairstyle in golden blonde, this look works for any hair color, including ombre. The slight wave can be achieved using a large barrel curling iron or hot rollers. This is a celebrity hairstyle that can be worn day or night.

Women who prefer to have their hair off their face yet still want a look that is sexy and interesting may opt for this hairstyle worn by Selena Gomez. Selena’s dark locks look striking in this hairstyle, but any color will work. This style can also adapt to any hair texture, as the hair is completely pulled back and braided with no loose areas. A small bouffant at the crown of the head flatters the face. The inside out braid starts right behind the pouf and snakes down the back of the head. Selena’s braid is slightly chunky and messy, which contrasts with the smooth sides of the head where the hair is sleekly pulled into the braid. This is a style that requires long hair, and will work especially well with hair that is thick and voluminous.

Get the Look: Chic French Hair at NYFW

We’re kind of obsessed with the chic, French-inspired hair at the Peter Som A/W 2014 show at New York Fashion Week – think Anna Karina and Jeanne Moreau. Celebrity hairstylist and Wella Professionals Global Creative Director Eugene Souleiman took inspiration from iconic French styles – from the 1960’s to the present day.

Here’s how to get the look at home.

1. Wash and condition hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner to help preserve the shade and shine of colour treated hair.

2. Apply Perfect Setting Blow Dry Lotion and blow dry the hair using a round brush to create natural volume.

3. Spray Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray to the roots of the hair, to create texture.

4. Create a semi-part in the side of the hair and insert pre-coloured extension pieces through the head for desired amount of colour.

5. Gently blow dry with fingers focusing on the roots to create extra lift.

6. Using fingertips, massage the roots focusing on the crown to create a raised ‘static’ texture to the hair.

7. Take the front section of the hair and position bobby pins to gently hold the hair.

8. To create more texture, lift random sections of the hair and spray with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray.
