  • Raven Symone’s Chic High Ponytail 2 of 11

    What we love about it: Ponytails are a mom's best friend. They keep hair up and out of little hands and show off your face. Trade in your traditional pony for a sleek high one like Raven Symone. 

    How-to get the look: Flat iron hair straight. Secure ponytail at the top of the crown. Wrap a small piece of hair from the ponytail around the hair band and secure with a bobby pin. EXCLUSIVE: Kiss Silicone Protexion 1-Inch Flat Iron is 50% off with free shipping for Babble readers! Enter the code "babble" at check out.

    Pro Tip: When securing the elastic, make sure to keep chin up towards the ceiling. The hair at the nape of the head will keep tight and secure not allowing for any sagging hair.

  • Bella Thorne’s Gorgeous Red Color 3 of 11

    What we love about it: Red hair only occurs naturally in approximately 1-2% of the population, making it unique and highly coveted. The color red is associated with fire, energy and emotion and redheads have a reputation for being feisty which we're all about! 

    How-to get the look: We can't all be blessed with stunning red hair but we can bring our daughters (or photos of stars like Bella Thorne) into the hair salon to try and mimic their shade.

    Pro Tip: When coloring hair red, make sure to ask your colorist for proper haircare and products from home use to maintain the color.

  • Selena Gomez’s Messy Braid 4 of 11

    What we love about it: Braids are the unofficial hairdo of the summer. They're practical, stylish, and only take a few minutes of time once you master your favorite technique. Selena Gomez looks effortlessly chic with her side braid which can be dressed up or down, perfect for moms on the go.

    How-to get the look: We've got a bunch of tutorials for you! Easy Summer Braids Three Ways, Maria Menounos' Double Dutch Style Fishtail Braid15 Ways To Wear An Inverted Braid.

    Pro tip: Braid hair while still damp to tame flyaways. They'll dry right into the braid! 

  • Isabella Acres’ Tight Curls 5 of 11

    What we love about them: If your hair is really curly, don't fight it, embrace it! Rather than straightening or tying it back, Isabella is rocking her tight ringlets with a big smile.

    How to get the look: Apply a cream based product like Garnier Curl Sculpting Cream or Shu Uemera Cotton Uzu to wet hair, then let it air dry. 

    Pro tip: When styling naturally curly hair always make sure to handle the curls with kid gloves. Be sure not to touch curls until they are completely dry. The more curls that are touched when wet the better chance of the hair frizzing.

  • Tiffany Espensen’s Center Part 6 of 11

    What we love about it: Center parts are not just for kids! We love the throwback vibe of long hair with a center part and Tiffany Epensen keeps it long and simple, which is sometimes all we have time for!

    How-to get the look: Play around with your hair to see where it falls naturally, then where it's most flattering to your facial features. 

    Pro Tip: If you've always worn your hair in the same parting, switching it to the other side can give added volume to your hair. 

  • Zendaya Coleman’s Cute Topper 7 of 11

    What we love about it: Rather than cover up your hair on a "bad hair day," how about throwing on a cute cap when having a good one? Hair that shows under the hat will only be enhanced by the fun accessory.

    How-to get the look: Check out these 6 Versatile Hats to Wear from Summer to Fall

    Pro tip: Spray your hat with dry shampoo to keep your hat smelling fresh.

  • Joey King’s Bob 8 of 11

    Why we love it: Short hair including bobs and pixie cuts are all the rage this year. The Great Gatsby even had me contemplating one! No haircut shows off a jaw line, elongated neck, and radiant smile better than a bob. 

    Pro tip: When you're at the salon, ask your stylist to add seamless layers to allow for movement and texture in the hair.

  • Mia Talerico’s Barrettes 9 of 11

    Why we love it: What better way to keep hair out of your face than a cute hair accessory?

    How to get the look: Invest in inexpensive hair accessories for a quick fix or to coordinate with your wardrobe. For thicker hair, try one of these 18 Statement Hair Combs | Brooches for your Hair.

    Pro tip: Use the outer corner of your eyebrows as a guideline for how wide of a section to clip back. 

  • Skai Jackson’s Headband 10 of 11

    What we love about it: Headbands are a practical and inexpensive way to hold hair back and off the face and as Skai Jackson so perfectly demonstrates, another fun way to accessorize!

    Get the look: You can find great inexpensive headbands just about everywhere but this summer, it's all about the knotted and weaved cloth ones. Check out this summer's hottest accessory: cloth headbands, to complete your look and update your wardrobe at the same time.

    Pro Tip: To avoid the headache you can get from the ends of headbands, wrap a small piece of cotton around the ends and fasten with a piece of tape or a Band Aid. The ends are hidden in your hair or behind the ear and you'll give yourself a bit of relief from the cushioning.

  • Allisyn Ashley Arm’s Pink Highlights 11 of 11

    What we love about it: Traditional hair colors aren't bold enough for some playful spirits like Allisyn Ashley Arm. She proves fun colored highlights are sure fire way to add drama and make a statement!

    How-to get the look: For a low commitment way to try streaks of bold color, try a temporary hair color spray. If you decide to go all the way, a professional colorist is recommended. You can also try Babble's Easy Summer Mermaid Hair.

    Pro tip: If pink is too bold for you, ask your colorist for a tone on tone under color. This will achieve the same style but be less dramatic on the eye.
