Look of the Day: Vanessa Hudgens' Sleek and Chic 'Do
"So You Think You Can Dance" judge Vanessa Hudgens stole the spotlight at the show's season 14 finale -- by singing and dancing to her single with Shawn Hook, "Reminding Me." Hudgens took the stage with dancer Robert Roldan, as Hook accompanied the duo crooning at the grand piano -- and it was quite the performance to remember.

One of the factors leading to her success? You know, in addition to her triple threat status? Her gorgeous slicked-back hairstyle. Engineered by celebrity hairstylist Chad Wood, the finished look added extra polish and panache to her performance. Wood started by prepping Hudgens' hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease Air Dry Waves Styling Foam, $7.99, before blow-drying for extra volume. He also added in a few extensions for some bonus length, next curling the hair (and subsequently shaking out said curls) to get those covetable loose waves.

Next, Wood injected a touch more volume with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo, $6.99, then applied some John Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Créme, $6.99 to give her waves a texture that was equal parts piecey and smooth. He finished the look up with John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Six Effects Serum, $9.99 and John Frieda Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray, $6.99.

Look of the Day: Queen Latifah's Sexy, Slicked Back Style
There's a reason Queen is in her name, as last night Queen Latifah looked like pure royalty at the 2017 BET Awards with her long, sleek strands and curve-hugging black gown. To get her show-stopping look, Latifah teamed up with Unilever celebrity hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, who says pulling back one side of her hair adds just the right amount of attitude to the gown.

The key to this look? Starting with clean hair. Stephen used Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo, $3.49, and Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner, $3.49, in order to protect the queen's hair from any heat damage. Once finished shampooing, Stephen applied the Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Leave-In Conditioner, $3.99, before blow-drying hair (starting at the roots), to keep hair extra smooth.

Once Latifah's hair was dry, she divided her strands into small sections and began to flat iron it. Once finished, Stephen's spritzed Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray, $3.99, generously throughout her hair to prevent frizz and flyaways. To get the signature look, she parted Latifah's hair down the side and combed back the hair on the side, securing with en elastic and bobby pin. To really clean up the look, Stephen finished by going over the free hair again with a flat iron and pulled some pieces forward to further frame her face.

Look of the Day: Olivia Wilde's Peachy Smoky Eye
There were plenty of awe-inspiring looks this year at the 2017 Tony Awards, but we found ourselves gawking at the ever-beautiful Olivia Wilde the minute she stepped onto the red carpet. Teaming up with Marc Jacobs Beauty makeup artist, Hung Vanngo, Wilde unveiled an eye-popping, peachy smoky eye and paired it with a sexy, plunging dress.

"Olivia is wearing a long, shimmering red dress and I didn't want to make it too obvious and give her red lips," Vanngo says. "Instead, I opted to do a fresh, peachy beauty look as it's one of my favorite looks to do, and I think it also complements the dress in a more modern way."

To create her look, Vanngo applied a sheer layer of Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super-Charged Oil-Free Foundation in 34 Beige Medium and used a tiny bit of Marc Jacobs Beauty Remedy Concealer Pen in 1 Rendezvous to brighten under her eyes. To set the canvas, Hung used Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder -- Featherweight Foundation in 240 Bisque through the center of the face. To warm up Wilde's complexion, he used a combination of Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in 504 Kink & Kisses on the cheeks and Marc Jacobs Beauty O!mega Bronze Perfect Tan across the cheekbones, temples and chin.

For added radiance and glow, Hung tapped Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator on the top of Wilde's cheekbones, Cupid's bow and the center of her nose. To frame her eyes, Hung filled in Wilde's brows with Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Wow Defining Longwear Eyebrow Pencil in Ash brown 4 and brushed them into place using Marc Jacobs Beauty Brow Tamer Grooming Gel.

To create her peachy smoky eye, Hung started by sketching Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Sunset 74, a golden-bronze shade, along the top and bottom lash line. He then applied a bit of the eyeliner onto her eyelid and quickly blended that out for a base color. On top of the eyeliner, Hung used the rose gold eye shadow from Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Eyeshadow in the Lover 220, and blended and diffused the edges of the shadow with the pearly, nude shade from the same palette. After curling Wilde's lashes, Hung applied a generous amount of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara to her top lashes.

Look of the Day: Rita Ora's Angelic Complexion
Glowing complexions were definitely a highlight (pun intended) of last night's 2017 Billboard Music Awards, and Rita Ora's makeup may have stolen the entire show. The singer, actress and Rimmel London spokesperson teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung for her angelic look. Jeung drew inspiration from the accents of Ora's dress, which she complemented with a silvery smoky eye, gunmetal accents and shimmery highlights on the skin.

To create Ora's radiant complexion, Jeung used the Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette, $6.99, in Coral Glow and applied the product to the tops of Ora's cheekbones, above her jawline and down the length of her nose. Then, Jeung used a rounded brush to dust blush on the apple of Ora's cheeks, extending it towards the temples for a punch of color. She finished Ora's face by applying Rimmel London Natural Bronzer, $4.99, in Sun Bronze along her hairline, temples, cheeks and just under the chin.

For Ora's metallic smoky eye, Jeung applied the beige shade of Rimmel London Magnif'Eyes Eye Contouring Palette, $7.99, in Grunge Glamour all over the eyelid and brow bone. Using the grey shadow, she highlighted the crease and lower lash line and added silver shadow along and above the smudged black line. To add definition, Jeung lined Ora's lash line with Rimmel London Eyeliner ScandalEyes Bold, $5.29, and subtly blended it using the black shadow from the Rimmel London Magnif'Eyes Eye Contouring Palette in Keep Calm & Wear Gold. A smudge of Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick, $4.59, in Witness White around the inner corner of Ora's eyes and a few coats of Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara, $11.51, gave Ora's eyes an extra pop. A swipe of Rimmel London Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner, $6.99, in Innocent and Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour, $5.49, in Latte To Go completed the look.

Look of the Day: Allison Williams' Platinum Curls
Allison Williams (aka Marnie from "Girls"), wowed at last night's Met Gala with her new blonde 'do and classic sweeping waves. To create her classy red carpet look, Williams teamed up with celebrity hairstylist, Rebekah Forecast, who says she wanted to depict the "wacky and sculptural designs" of the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons theme of the evening. "So I embodied this with sculpted waves," Forecast says. "All the while, keeping the look soft and beautiful to honor the classic Diane von Furstenberg gown she wore."

To create her look, Forecast prepped Williams' dry strands with Matrix Style Link Mineral Airy Builder Dry Texture Foam, $18, for texture and Matrix Style Link Heat Buffer, $18, for protection and smoothing. Then she created a side part in Williams' hair and combed Matrix Style Link Blowout Skinny Queen, $16, around the hair line to create waves and give the hair direction.

To create Williams' chic and classy waves, Forecast spritzed Matrix Style Link Volume Fixer Hairspray, $18, to the hair and used a 3/4 inch barrel curling iron to curl hair and pinned each piece up -- letting the curls sit for 30 minutes. Once the curls were locked in place, Forecast worked Matrix Style Link Mineral Grip Definer, $18, through the hair and brushed them out to give the waves texture. To finish her look, Forecast smoothed her ends with the Matrix Style Link Over Achiever 3-in-1 Cream Paste and teased sections of her hair for a bit more volume, spritzing more hairspray to lock in the look.
