As the star of Netflix's upcoming The Princess Switch, it's only appropriate that Vanessa rock an elegant side-swept bob that's fit for a royal. First part your hair to the side of your choice, then blow dry using a large rolling brush. For added texture, wrap thick sections around the end of the round brush and spritz with hairspray.

If we could only use one word to describe Khloe Kardashian's sleek blonde bob, it'd be chic. To recreate, part your hair in the center and style with a straightener, then finish with a spray of hair shine mist.

She may be known for her long, ice blonde look in Game of Thrones, but the Mother of Dragons stuns with short hair too. Ask for a pixie cut with bangs, part it to the side, and use hair wax to replicate Emilia's piecey look.

Look closely and you'll notice that not only is one side of Jenna Dewan's hair longer than the other, but the back is also shorter than the front pieces. To achieve Jenna's level of edgy glam, use hot rollers. Once set, brush out the waves with a paddle brush without tugging hard on the ends.

If you're into Tina Fey's look, ask your stylist for lots of long layers on shoulder-length hair, and make sure the ends have a lot of texture for volume, says Naz Kupelian, Rusk celebrity hairstylist at Naz Salon. When you're ready to style, blow-dry hair straight, then apply a small amount of glossing cream to tame flyaways and add shine. Next, flat-iron the tips away from the face for a modern-day flip. Pull bangs slightly behind one ear, bringing the under-section of hair toward your chin.

"This is the 'lob' a.k.a. the longer bob. Ask for slightly longer layers than a traditional bob, and when you're ready to style, douse roots with a volumizer and blow-dry hair as normal, says Kupelian. Set your hair vertically in hot rollers, brush it out with a paddle brush, then sweep into a deep part before spritzing with a curl-defining spray. To help define the front wave, pin along the curve in a couple places — one or two will work fine — and tuck the shorter parts behind your ear.

Adding choppy, longer layers to a basic bob gives it a more elegant look up front, says Kupelian. To style, blow-dry with a round brush, combing the ends under. Smooth the top with a glossing lotion and part your hair above the pupil of one eye. Sweep a 1-inch section of the part behind the ear and fasten with a bobby pin. Apply a small amount of wax to the ends of hair, pulling them slightly forward.

To get Jessica Alba's look, first do a rough blow-dry with your hands. Then, take five sections of hair. One should be about three inches wide on top of your head, and it should go back to the crown like a mohawk. Part the rest of the hair into four remaining sections: the hair on each side of the mohawk and two sections in the back. Wrap each section in a medium-size round brush and blow the hair away from your face. Finish blow-drying your five sections, then touch up with a 2-inch curling iron. Finally, shake your hair out, loosening it with your fingers, and finish with holding spray, says Joshua Gambrell, celebrity stylist at Lotus Salons in New York City.

The first thing you want to do for this look is give your bangs lift, so you'll want to smooth them out and blow-dry with a flat boar bristle brush, says Gambrell. Once you've done that, blow-dry the rest of your hair, giving the roots as much lift as possible by rough blow-drying your hair in the opposite direction so it doesn't fall. Once it's about 50% dry, use a flat boar bristle brush and, starting at the nape and working up toward the crown, smooth 2-inch sections of hair out from root to end. Finish with a shine mist.

To get Halle Berry's adorable cropped locks, first apply a styling cream for extra hold and texture before finger-drying haphazardly. Finish with a tack-like wax in the same disheveled manner that you used to dry, and pull out pieces and chunks to separate and texturize.

This style lifts lightly at the crown and has some movement, which is perfect for day or night. Ask your stylist for medium to long layers and long side bangs, and bevel the ends so they naturally curl under. After you wash hair, add light argan oil to ends. Blow-dry with a large round brush in sections, lifting at the roots and crown. Sweep bangs to one side and tuck the other side behind the ear. Secure with a bobby pin and cover with remaining hair, says Kupelian.

First, do a rough pre-dry with your hands. Then, dry 3-inch sections with a round brush, from bottom to top until you get to the hair around your crown, which you want to blow forward, says Gambrell. Finger comb the top sections of your bangs back to give you a little root lift before blow-drying them to one side.

Pre-dry your hair with a diffuser while scrunching the hair from the ends toward the scalp. Once your hair is half-dry, separate it into three sections: Picture a line that starts at one ear and goes around the crown, ending at the other ear — two sections will be on either side of your part, and the third will be the entire back.

Starting from the back of your head, take 1-inch sections of hair. Twist each around your finger and let that hair fall, says Gambrell. Do the same for each side section so you have a ringlet look. If your hair is really curly, let it air-dry at this point. If it's wavy, use a diffuser to dry. Once you have the hair set, shake it loose and let it air-dry the rest of the way.

First, pre-dry your hair about halfway. Then, take 3-inch sections, starting at the nape of your neck and working your way up, and blow-dry your hair. Point the dryer down and keep a flat boar bristle brush underneath your hair to add shine and smoothness. Once you have the bottom dry, blow the top forward and use your fingers to position your hair, says Gambrell. If you have really wavy hair, touch it up with a flat iron at the end.

To achieve Natalie's look, first blow-dry the bangs totally dry to eliminate cowlicks. (Use a small, round brush and put the bangs on top of the brush, rolling it forward and down, recommends Gambrell.) Rough blow-dry the rest of your hair about 50%, then separate into 2-inch sections, starting at the nape and working up toward the crown. Put the hair on a round brush, then blow-dry with the dryer pointing down for a smoothing effect. Finish with shine spray.

"Annette's trademark short hair is punk rock and soft at the same time," says Kupelian. "The pixie look is modernized with choppy pieces, adding height and volume to the top of the head." To achieve her look, ask your stylist for lots of texture with length over the ears and on the top of the head. Blow-dry without a brush, and when it's almost dry, use a round brush to add volume at the crown. Rub wax in between your palms and piece it through your hair with your fingertips. "The more disheveled the better!" adds Kupelian.

To get Nicole Kidman's sexy curls, first wash with a shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner and apply an anti-frizz serum into towel-dried locks. If your hair isn't curly, add texture with a curl-enhancing beach spray. Dry hair naturally or with a blow-dryer, section by section. When hair is completely dry, spritz again with a curling agent and go through your entire head with a medium- to large-barreled curling iron. Hold the iron vertically and let the spirals fall straight down. Finish with a mist of extra-hold hairspray and let sit. Separate curls slightly and pull a few to the front of your face. Section the sides back, holding with bobby pins.

"This is a great shorter cut for fine hair. It's chic and low maintenance," says Kupelian. "This chin-length bob boasts extra length in the front for a very wearable look." For thicker hair, ask for a choppy texture at the ends. Shampoo and condition as normal, and apply a few drops of shine serum to wet hair. Blow-dry, alternating between a flat brush and a round brush, then part slightly off-center.

"This basic bob is a perfect low-maintenance look that can be dressed up in an instant," says Kupelian. Ask your stylist for slightly longer layers in the front and volume around the crown. Blow-dry with a round brush, then use a large-barrel curling iron. Separate the curls with your fingers, creating volume at the ends. Finish with wax or polish to keep a frizz-free curl all night.
