Nothing says simple and confident like natural hair – the simplest hair style of all. Seriously, you can literally wash and go. Rock an easy afro, like Viola Davis, or do a simple twist for added volume no matter what your hair type.
According to Mirza Batanovic, the style director for Eufora International, Kate Winslet's textured ponytail is a great party hairstyle. To get the look, start by using a wand to add texture to the hair, curling away from the face. Then pull your hair back, then tie off using a neutral-colored hair tie. From there, add dry texture spray to the ends of the hair. Then take a wide tooth comb and push hair at the top of the head up towards the roots from the end, adding volume and height at the crown.
Ashley Graham's effortless waves are easily attainable and perfect for any occasion, especially a Christmas party. Next time you go to curl your hair, opt for a larger curling iron so curls are fall loose around your face, and instead of twirling each section in the same direction, alternate with different sections of hair to get this natural look.
Rachel McAdams' modern take on the French twist is "not your grandmother's French twist" according to Mirza. To recreate the look start by pinning the hair into three sections — the top, middle, and bottom. Also add some dry shampoo to absorb some of the hair's oils and to keep your hair smelling fresh and clean. Then, take the middle section, twisting it up and securing it with bobby pins to hold hair in place. From there, grab the bottom section, repeat twisting the hair up and pin it into the middle section. Finally, grab the top section and pull it over the middle and bottom sections, give it another twist and secure it with pins.
If you have natural curls like Halle Berry, this is a no-heat hairstyle, but if you need help getting a wavier texture, curl your hair before pulling it back into a high ponytail. Once it's slicked back, spray and tease the hair to up the volume. Finally, pin sections of the hair piece by piece around the top of your head until you have your desired shape for a salon quality updo with little to no hassle.

For Carrie Underwood's glam look, start with clean, blown-dry hair, then use your fingers to part your hair on the opposite side of your usual part. This creates instant volume along your hairline and crown — strands that are always parted the same way tend to lie flat over time. Grab the front section (the hair around your forehead and 1" in toward your crown) and place a 1" barrel brush behind it at the roots. Wrap the section clockwise around the brush. With your blow dryer set to medium and pointed at the brush, pull your hair through the brush, swooping it down over your forehead and up around your ear. Repeat until your hair is smooth. Add a touch of sparkle by clipping a jeweled barrette onto the side-swept section, holding it in place just above the top of your ear.
To get the look of Kate Middleton's sleek twist, gently brush back your hair and gather it at the nape of your neck. Using your fingers, split hair into two sections. Gather each section into two low pigtails, securing each with a clear hair elastic. Twist each pigtail so it begins to move in toward the other. Continue twisting until the pigtails are tightly wound and begin to bunch up on top of one another. Tuck in the ends under the twists and secure them with bobby pins.
Another Kate Middleton look we love? This braided twist. On day-old hair that has been blown dry, make a natural side part by raking your fingers through hair. Create a French braid with three 1" sections of hair along your hairline. To do, take the left section and cross it over the one in the center. Then, take the right section and cross it over the ones in the center.
As you continue to work back in the opposite direction of your part, gather up two more small sections of hair (one along the hairline at your temple, another at your ear) to create a thicker French braid. Secure the braid with a small, clear elastic band, leaving about 3" of loose, unbraided hair at the end. Take the end of your braid and the rest of your hair and sweep it into a ponytail. Twist it clockwise into a bun just above the nape of your neck and secure with bobby pins.
