Actress Jennifer left her long wavy hair behind and opted for a playful, tousled wob – a wavy bob. An impressive hairstyle for thick hair, this baby bob is pleasant and flirty, with wavy layers and loads of texture.

Recreate this low maintenance hairstyle by applying a texture spray first.

Set the glamorous and chic hairdo with spritzing a light-touch hairspray.

Lost Actress Evangeline Lilly updates her long curly hair (remember fugitive Kate Austen?) with this fabulous classic, rounded bob with side-swept bangs.

We absolutely love this look on Charlize Theron. The actress rocks her signature pixie crop with perky and dynamic curls. An ideal short hairdo for oval-shaped faces, the style balances out a heavy jawline with some extra volume on top.

To get Charl’s playful and romantic hairstyle, start by preparing your hair for styling with volume boosting gel and styling mousse; make sure the hair gel is applied with your fingertips. Now, blow-dry throughout your hair with a small round brush, teasing it at the crown. Once you’ve styled it, mist it with some light, non-greasy hairspray.
