If you can scrounge up one bobby pin in the bottom of your purse, you can recreate the model’s hairstyle. Just cut a deep part and twist back a section of hair, letting the rest fall over your shoulder. Bonus points for breaking out the curling iron.

We’ve been staring at this insanely cool double braid ever since Diane hit the red carpet sporting the unique style. And while it may not be guy-hot (one dude said it reminded him of Alien), your girlfriends will certainly appreciate (then promptly copy) the look.

Are the singer’s colorful ponytail and glitter-accented tendrils something we plan to try? Unlikely. But that doesn’t mean we’re not loving how creative the style is. (You can only see so many center-parted waves in one summer.)

There’s something subtly ’60s but not at all costumey about teased pony thanks to the parted layers and volume at the crown.

We don’t often spend time on a private yacht in the Mediterranean, but if the opportunity arises, we know how we’re wearing our hair. Just like , complete with a colorful silk scarf-turned-headband. (We’d also copy her jewelry game while we’re onboard.)

We think of this look as side-swept waves’s little sister. The actress wears her textured strands pulled toward her left shoulder and held in place with bobby pins, leaving a few layers loose for a vibe that’s very I-didn’t-try-too-hard.

Twiggy inspired many women to go short in the ’60s and now, 50 years later, Shailene is prompting a similar scissors craze with her sleek, side-parted crop. (Note: This style plays well with statement earrings and dramatic eye makeup.)

In-between bangs is one of the great obstacles of being a woman, but offers up a cute solution: She takes the front section of her hair, twists it then fastens it with a lace clip. Yes, similar to a Yorkie.

Center part. Beachy waves. Loose tendrils. Pinned at the back. Is do revolutionary? No. But is it classic, chic and ultra-flattering? Yes, yes and a thousand times yes.

It’s not so much that we love her hair here, but we had to include the photo because what we love is the fact that Bella was the first celeb to recreate the colorful, dreadlike ponytail spotted on the Chanel runway at Paris Fashion Week.

The actress shows how even the smallest tweak (in this case, pulling back two small sections of hair) can transform a regular down do into a full-on look. (Bookmark this for the next time you have all of 30 seconds to get yourself in date/meeting/brunch shape.)

Wearing what appears to be all the strawberry-blonde extensions in the universe, the young star sports an intricate (and heavy looking!) tangle of braids, twists and loops.

This messy side braid is what second-day hair and a few sprays of dry shampoo were made for. In other words, what we’re sporting to work this Friday.

If you’ve ever wondered what exactly an “undone updo” is, the and her hair are here to let you know. Her side bun has lots of texture, which keeps it from feeling too try-hard and severe, but the front is polished to avoid that straight-from-spin vibe.

We know: cutest photo ever. Once you’re done saying aww, check out Harper’s perfectly executed top knot (it’s her signature look) adorned with a metallic bow.

Full disclosure: We weren’t sure whether this look was amazing in a good way or a bad way. But after careful consideration – and checking out the pony from all angles – we decided it’s kind of a fun look. For girls night out, that is (men would so not appreciate the hairstyle).

This, people, is the reason blowout salons exist. Because we’d all happily pay 40 bucks to get hair this perfectly blow-dried and amazingly curled. Now, excuse us while we go make an appointment.

should probably be disqualified from this roundup since her hair always looks all kinds of amazing (even in a ponytail), but we just have to acknowledge how much we love her long, blonde mane blown out perfectly straight and worn in a deep side part.

It’s officially the year of the lob and it’s photos like this one of piece-y version that make us want to chop off our long hair. (We’re also fans of that subtle ombré color.)

The Glee star’s ponytail meets all the requirements needed to make it red carpet-worthy: height at the crown, a section of hair wrapped around the elastic, tousled length and pretty face-framing pieces.

Would it be weird if we made this image of the singer our screensaver? Because we’d be happy to stare at her glossy, center-parted blow-out and bold blonde streaks all day.

We never thought we’d reach for a tube of firm-hold gel again, but the House of Cards actress has us doing just that, thanks to her super-sleek, tucked-behind-the-ears style.

“Anything can do, I can do better,” is what we imagine Jennifer singing while her stylist whipped up this impressive pony with even more “humps” than Blake’s Met Gala version.

From the front, do looks like a regular bun. But from the back, you get a fun surprise in the form of a French braid (which kind of looks like it’s zipping up her hair).
