So you want to look like Jennifer Aniston with her long wavy locks, as you saw her on the sets of the People’s Choice Awards 2007? But, the other day, you just went gaga over the short hairstyle of Angelina Jolie, the one you saw on an old magazine. Well, don’t fret! You’re not alone, as almost everybody like you would want to look like them or get into their hairstyles. However, achieving that wish can take more than wishing.

Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez are both well known for their straight long locks. However, Aniston is a favorite crowd drawer with her almost perfect straight hair. You can also achieve her sedu straight hair and with only a minimal effort. Invest in a good ceramic hair iron and hair serums or protective coatings for the hair and off you go.

Start with a clean hair. Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and dry your hair. Never use the hair iron while your hair is still damp, because the heat can fry your hair and you don’t want to smell like fried hair, much less look like your hair got caught in the oven!

Divide your hair in sections and use the hair iron in several sections, changing sections constantly to avoid putting on too much heat in one section of the hair. Once you get the hang of it, using your hair iron to get that sedu straightened hair, much like the one being flaunted by Jen Aniston, would be a breeze.

And did you know that before Angelina Jolie became known for her long thick tresses, she had medium-short wavy hair? To get this celebrity hairstyle you need a blow dryer, a mousse and some hair spray. Shampoo and condition your hair and when it is half-dry, you can put on mousse starting from the roots of the hair to the tips. Blow- dry your hair (use a diffuser though), section by section, and then brush it according to the desired style. You can use a hair spray to keep the style longer.

Getting that perfectly straight and sexy hair being sported by Gwyneth Paltrow most of the time is quite easy, but you need to be patient. Wash your hair with a shampoo and conditioner, and towel dry. When half-dry, you can apply the mousse to volumize the hair, and then use the towel to dry it again. You can then comb your hair with a toothed comb, and part it in the middle, or on the lower side. You can use a serum or a coating gloss keep to the hair shiny. Or you can use a hair spray to keep the straight look till the end of the day.

If you want to get that just-woke-up-but-still-gorgeous look of Meg Ryan, then you don’t need to do much. Just get a short layered cut like Meg Ryan’s in Sleepless in Seattle, shampoo and condition your hair, and put some mousse before your dry it with a towel. You can scrunch your hair to produce that tousled and sexy look.

To be perfectly honest, you will never look like your favorite celebrities (unless of course you settle for a facial surgery!), but you can definitely copy their hairstyles!
