Hair Inspiration from Your Favorite Stars

They’re It-girls for a reason. These Hollywood insiders always seem to be one step ahead, and they set the trends rather than follow them. So as we gear up for the transition into summer, there’s never been a better time to look to your favorite celebs for a bit of hairspiration. It doesn’t matter if you have waves, curls, or pin-straight hair — just get ready to screenshot as you scroll on, because not only are we rounding up the got-to-try-it styles, we’re also sharing the products you’ll need to get and maintain your new look, all available at a Simon near you.

The Look: Beachy Waves
As actress Priyanka Chopra shows, summer is the perfect time for this seemingly effortless look. Soft, loose curls provide hair with body and fullness, while simultaneously giving you a fresh-from-the-beach vibe. Try throwing your hair up into a messy pony as Chopra did here, or let those locks flow down for a more Bohemian take on the style.

1) QUAI Wave Spray, available at Sephora.   2) T3 BodyWaver Curling Iron, available at Macy’s.    3) BUMBLE AND BUMBLE Does It All Light Hold Hairspray, available at Sephora.

The Get:
If you don’t have curly hair to start with, you’ll need to invest in a large-barrel curling iron to get those loose waves. Then to keep them there, look for products that have a soft hold to maintain the texture. If you have a bit of wave naturally, reach for a salt water spray to help accentuate them and bring them out even more.


The Look: A Touch of Pink
Okay, we’ve seen it for the past year or so, but one look at Hailey Baldwin is proof that the trend for a soft pink hue isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It’s called Millennial Pink for a reason, and a whole generation continues to see the appeal. For a fresh spin, opt for a polished, ladylike updo to contrast the edginess of your new color.

1) AVEDA Color Conserve Conditioner, available at Nordstrom.   2) MADISON REED Tune Up Color Reviving Conditioner, available at Sephora.   3) ORIBE Shampoo for Beautiful Color, available at Neiman Marcus.

The Get:
This is one place where we’ll encourage you to have your color done professionally rather than doing it yourself, but once you’ve achieved the rosy pink you’re after, you’re going to want to maintain it. These color-saving finds will keep your blush or magenta shade going strong until the next time you’re ready for a change.


The Look: The Ultra-Short Pixie
If ever there’s a time for an ultra-short cut, summer is it. Whether you’re poolside or just running around in the humidity, there’s no worrying about frizz or flyaways. Take a page out of Zoe Kravitz’s book and opt for a choppy style to incorporate a bit of edge.

1) (MALIN+GOETZ) Hair Pomade, available at Bloomingdale’s.   2) BUMBLE AND BUMBLE Texture Hair (Un) Dressing Creme, available at Sephora.   3) MORACCANOIL Molding Cream, available at Bluemercury.

The Get:
It’s all about one word: texture! Daily use of a pomade, wax, or styling cream will give definition and shape to your style, even when you go super-short. And the plus side: these thicker products have less of a tendency to run when the temperature takes you from glowing to full-out sweating.

The Look: The Textured Lob
Actress Charlize Theron is only one of dozens of celebs we’ve seen sporting this fun, youthful style this season. There’s been a mad rush for the scissors, as we’ve seen woman after woman chop off inches of their hair for the decidedly modern, slightly longer version of the classic bob. The result is an easy, playful look that’s a snap to maintain and will carry you all summer long.

1) KÉRASTASE Lift Vertige Root-uplifting Gel, available at CVS.   2)KEVIN.MURPHY Fresh Hair Dry Cleaning Spray, available at Walgreens.   3)DRYBAR The Bouncer Diffuser, available at Nordstrom.

The Get:
You new mantra — at least product-wise — when you go with this cut is “light.” You want to avoid products that weigh your hair down, so that the bounce and volume in the style will stay as fresh as it makes you feel. Opt for a dry shampoo, root-lifting spray, and, for those days when you need a little extra lift, the biggest diffuser you can find.


The Look: Pretty in Platinum
Like pink hair, we’ve been seeing shades of platinum EVERYWHERE, so if you’ve been shy about making the commitment, now’s the time. Even Cara Delevingne’s signature honey locks have gotten the platinum treatment, so what are you waiting for?

1) DRYBAR Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo, available at Sephora.   2)SHU UEMURA Essence Absolue Nourishing Hair Oil, available at Barneys New York.   3) COLOR WOW Brass Banned Mousse, available at Ulta.

The Get:
Again, we’re going to suggest you have the coloration itself done professionally — c’mon, you know that Cara’s look didn’t come out of a box — but you can help keep that color sharp with at-home care. Everything from shampoo to mousse has been formulated specifically for icy shades, and be sure to protect your hair with a deep-penetrating oil conditioner.
