Do the Twist

Hot summer days call for Sandra Bullock's cool, no-fuss style.

How to do it: Apply mousse to damp hair and blow-dry. Create volume by using a medium-barrel curling iron just at roots to get lift. Use a light spray, like Garnier Fructis Style Flexible Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray, $6, to hold. Divide hair into two horizontal sections. Clip the top half—from about 3 inches above ears to forehead—out of the way. Twist the bottom part into a high knot just under crown. Wrap the first section around the knot you've just created, leaving ends sticking out, and secure with bobby pins. Pro Tip: Mist a large blush brush with a finishing spray and smooth hairline, advises Frankie.

Garnier Fructis Style Flexible Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray available at drugstores.
