The Sleek, Sophisticated Bob

A deep side part and a volumizing root boost can transform a short bob into Katie Holmes' polished 'do.

How to do it: Create a deep side part—for an easy indicator of where to place it, draw an imaginary line back from the arch of one eyebrow. Then, work a styling foam through wet hair for texture and extra body. Blow-dry, then add a finishing gloss to make strands shine, says celebrity stylist Paul Labrecque of the Paul Labrecque Salon in New York City.
