Olivia first gathers her hair up with a Goody Secure Fit Elastic. "My favourite beauty product for my hair is Elnett Hair Spray ($7.99)," she says. "Elnett, some bobby pins, a little bit of a comb, and you're done. It takes literally 25 seconds." And the best part is, you can sleep in and still get it done. Take that, alarm clock.
The forever stylish Brit It Girl is known for her glowing complexion and effortlessly styled beach waves, but it was all about the texture in her tousled up 'do. To try out her look at home start by spraying damp hair with Toni and Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray ($15.99), scrunching your hair as you blow dry. Once dry, section of your front fringe area and finger brush your hair into a ponytail securing with an elastic. Use bobby pins to loosely style your fringe strands and then twist your hair around the base of the ponytail into a loose bun and secure with pins. Set with a spritz of Morrocan Oil Glimmer Shine Spray ($34.50). To fnish of Sienna's look try adding well-lined lids with a flick of liquid eyeliner like Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates ($44).
- Top knot: A great option for women with longer hair all year-round. Simply flip your head over, brush with your fingers, and loosely gather it on top of your head. Add a twist, some bobby pins, maybe a swipe of red lipstick, and you're all set.
- Braided headband: Cover your roots with this adorable standby, which works for long and short hair. Grab a half-inch section of hair from behind one ear and start french braiding it across your scalp toward the other ear. Tie it off and secure with a pin.
- The double ponytail: If you suffer from hair sweat on the back of your neck (hey, it happens), this is the style for you. Split your hair into two sections, a top and a bottom, and tie them both into low ponytails. Then, connect the two ponytails with a hair tie for a fun, trendy hair look.
- If you've got a pixie cut . . . You're in luck. Just let the texture work for you. After spraying on your dry shampoo, work it into your hair and let it dry. Your hair will dry into a sexy bedhead style.
And if all else fails, throw on an adorable, on-trend baseball cap.
When we talk about out celebrity girl crushes, Lauren Conrad is right up there with the likes of Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss. The ex-reality star has carved a reputable writing career following her leading lady status on The Hills, and she even released her own beauty book late last year, Lauren Conrad Beauty. Aside from consistently rocking perfectly winged eyeliner, Lauren is also a major fan of the high bun. To celebrate her love of taking the high road, along with her newly released book, Infamous, we've got her top bun moments.
The top knot trend seems like it's going to be sticking around for a while, and it's not hard to see why. The style is easy enough for everyday wear, keeps your neck cool, and can transition to a casual night out with just the addition of some bold makeup. But like all styles that look like they're not hard to do (hello, beachy waves), the top knot can be a little tricky to master. For a simple step-by-step to get this chic yet undone bun, just keep reading.
You know that effortless top knot you love to wear to the supermarket or the gym? Yesterday, Rachel McAdams proved that you can play up that casual look for any occasion — even the red carpet. "I love a top knot, and I'm so happy this trend is sticking around; they're young, cool, and super-modern," said celebrity stylist Mark Townsend, who created the style. To get this look at home, start by spritzing your roots with Klorane Dry Shampoo ($12.99) for added texture. Pull your hair into a ponytail just in front of the crown and use Redken Wax Blast Spray ($24.95) on the length of the pony. Next, twist hair around the base of the elastic, tucking in ends and securing with bobby pins. Townsend recommends crisscrossing the pins to secure and spraying them with dry shampoo. The starch in the product takes away the shine, making them less noticeable and also giving them a tighter grip. After pulling out a few flyaways and adding a satin ribbon, Rachel was set for an evening out. You'll never underestimate the glamour of a top knot again.

Also taking up residence in our top ten? Jennifer Lopez with her glowing natural beauty, Willa Holland and Rihanna with bold lips, and one perfect ponytail that we can't wait to try. Dive in to this very beauty-full celeb world to see the rest!
To achieve the look, spritz down your fingertips with hair spray and sweep your hair back off your face. Add a few loose braids along your scalp before finger-brushing your hair into a ponytail and securing it with an elastic. Working in half-inch sections, coil your hair around the base of your ponytail and secure with hairpins until all of the hair in the ponytail is pinned up. Finish with another mist of hair spray and a punchy pink lip, like Estée Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Magnetic Magenta ($45).
