Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson with a sexy bob

Scarlett Johansson's a-line bob was accentuated tonight with sexy, messy curls. Use a hair spray as a setting spray before you use an 1" iron to wrap the hair around, but leave the ends out to create an imperfect curl. Then flip upside down, and with pomade in your hands, mess up the curls to give it that vixen look. The idea is loose and messy, so don't go for perfect.

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson looked gorgeous with her posh updo

Jennifer Hudson looked svelte tonight in her Versace gown and curled pompadour. This posh updo was created by using curled hair, or hair extensions, then setting them in place with bobby pins on top of the head to create more volume. Do not brush the hair out—instead use pin curls, which is pinning a set curl—this way you don't lose the curl pattern or shape. Spraying hair spray throughout each pin will guarantee your style will stay in place all night.
