Jada Pinkett SmithThe Look: Slicked back half-updo
Works best for: Shoulder length or longer, thick or fine straight hair.
Step 1: First, if your hair isn't stick straight like Jada's, run a flat iron over the ends to really flatten out. Then, apply a strong hold gel (try Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strong Gel, $16) to the front and sides of dry hair, and slick all of your face framing hair back.
Step 2: Section off a horseshoe shape of hair from your temples to the back of your crown, and clip up and out of the way for now.
Step 3: Use a comb to smooth back the sides of your hair (just above your ears) and secure each side (just behind your ears) with bobby pins that match your hair color.
Step 4: Let down the clipped section and carefully smooth back the top section of hair with a comb, so it hides the pins. Spritz with hairspray to finish (try Blow Blow Out Spray, $19.75).
