THE LOOK Short stacked spirals
HOW-TO Ursula Stephens, the hairstylist who created the look, wrapped six to seven big sections around the barrel of a curling iron. "I didn't even brush them," she says. "I wanted you to be able to see the curl." She rubbed pomade between her hands and finger-styled the curls to give them added shape and definition.
INSIDER TRICK Use two different size curling irons, like Stephens did, to vary the width of the curls.

THE LOOK Luscious curls
HOW-TO Stylist Rodney Cutler says to prep wet hair with a heat protectant spray and then create a side part. "Blow-dry the hair at the part with a flat brush to create shine at the roots," says Cutler. "Once the hair is dry, lightly spray it with hairspray before curling." He recommends a medium-barrel curling iron: in sections, curl the hair, starting at the ends and roll up to the root. "Release and run your hands through to finish the style," adds Cutler.
INSIDER TRICK "The low side part gives it that vintage twist while the waves really play up the glamorous undertone," says Cutler. "This look is perfect for anyone who wants to look young and modern with a classic feel."

THE LOOK Romantic Curls
HOW-TO After creating a center part, curl sections of hair with a wide-barrel iron. "Curl from mid-shaft to the ends, keeping the iron away from the root," says stylist Mario Russo. Spritz each section with hairspray when you remove it from the iron to maintain the curl at the end.
INSIDER TRICK "If you have wavy or coarse hair, start by smoothing it out with a large round brush and a protectant cream," says Russo.

THE LOOK Loose, pulled back waves
HOW-TO "I was running late, so I did this look in 15 minutes," says hairstylist Robert Ramos. He spritzed volumizer on damp hair, scrunching as he blew it dry. He curled random sections with a small iron, and pulled the hair into a low, untidy bun. He rubbed texturing cream in his hands and styled the pieces around her face for separation.
INSIDER TRICK "This is the perfect style if you're in a hurry and you need to look fabulous," says Ramos. "And the texturing cream is the key ingredient."

HOW-TO "To achieve this style, it's important to start curly," says stylist Gary Howse. Curl sections of hair (or if you have naturally curly hair, leave it as is) and then pull the hair into a high bun and secure. Lightly push crown hair forward to give the height on top and secure with hairspray.
INSIDER TRICK "This style needs texture, which is why starting with curls is important," says Manuel.

THE LOOK Side ponytail
HOW-TO On dry hair, use a medium curling iron on large sections of hair, pinning each curl as you go, says stylist Thomas Dunkin. “Once the whole head is in pins, spritz with hairspray. Remove the pins and rake fingers through hair,” he says. Then pull up both sides above the ear and secure with a barrette. Then pull the hair loosely into a side ponytail and pull it over the shoulder.
INSIDER TRICK When blow-drying your hair, flip the head upside-down. “This will achieve both volume and a soft texture,” says Dunkin.

HOW-TO "Use a one-inch curling iron and wrap the hair around the barrel in one-to-two inch sections," says hairstylist Jennifer Johnson. "Then tease the crown a little and pull both sides back and pin it. Finish with hairspray."
INSIDER TRICK "Don’t roll curls all in the same direction," says Johnson. "If all the sections are curled the same way and the same size, it looks really done and not as natural."
