How to get STAR hair!

What Not to Wear's hair guru Nick Arrojo tells you how to style your tresses like the stars!

How to get the look:

1.Apply volumizing mousse all over, and – using a medium-sized round barrel brush – blow-dry smooth.

2. Wrap hair sections around the brush, and blow-dry for five seconds. Blast with cool air to set and unravel.
3. Twist the pieces together to "create loopy, bouncy waves," says Arrojo.

Bonus tip: You can also use hot Velcro rollers – but be sure to cool hair before removing them. "Otherwise, you'll lose the bounce," he says. Finish with hairspray.

How to get the look:
1. Use a volumizing product to blow-dry and tousle hair with fingers.
2. In the jar, blow-dry a small amount of pomade until it liquefies. Dab onto palm and apply "to create separation and texture," says Arrojo.
3. For a "more carefree look," use a curling iron to loosely loop the ends.

Bonus tip: "Add extensions to give your hair pieces of length in areas," he says.

How to get the look:

1. Apply mousse and blow-dry with your hands, then scrunch it under a diffuser.
2. Use a curling iron to emphasize the loops. But "don't do every curl – you'll achieve a look that's too set," says Arrojo.
3. Blow-dry the front with your fingers, and "get a little bit of a flick" with the curling iron. Finish with a detailing mist or high-shine hairspray.
Bonus Tip: Lightly tease the crown of your hair with a bristle brush. Gives nice body and will stay all night.

How to get the look:
1. Apply a thermal protector and blow-dry hair smooth.

2. With a curling iron, take 10 sections of hair around the head and curl in at the root. Allow hair to cool.

3. Take a small amount of de-frizzing serum, turn your head over and run fingers through hair or use a vent brush to break down the curl.

Bonus tip: On one side, curl three strands toward your face for a "nice curved scoop," says Arrojo. Finish with hairspray.
