1 / 6

Sandra Oh

“The bangs were very important for this look. The right texture, the right volume and the right movement is what it’s all about. A great blowdryer, like the Turbo Power Twin Turbo 3900, is also essential.” ($289)

2 / 6

Natasha Lyonne

“For this cover shoot, I cut Natasha’s hair into a Stevie Nicks–inspired, vibed shag. What helps keep it together is a really good, workable product with a lot of hold like my Starring Shooting Star Texture Meringue.” ($52)

3 / 6

Tessa Thompson

“To get this far-out pompadour, the blow-dry is key. I used Intelligent Nutrients Amplifi-hair Blow Out Cream to give ultimate results.” ($36)

4 / 6

Chloë Sevigny

“To play up her chic sailor-girl look, I created an S-pattern using a Hot Tools Pro Artist 24K Gold 1-inch barrel Marcel curling iron, then came back with a quarter-inch curling iron to define the ridges.” ($50)


5 / 6

Melanie Lynskey

“I tucked Melanie’s center part behind her ears to open up her face and bring her beautiful eyes to the forefront. To give added luster and long-lasting control, use a cream shine product like Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom.” ($26)

6 / 6

Sydney Sweeney

“On Sydney, the name of the game was volume. This sleek, modern take of a ‘60s backcomb calls for fullness, so we did a volume blow-dry using Aveda’s Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.” ($35)
