A simple twisted side bun is made all the more gorgeous by the addition of a small, sparkly hair accessory, like this one on Keira Knightley.

Jennifer Lopez is known for her long, sexy bombshell hair, but she can do subdued, too. This retro-inspired bob, with its deep side part and curled ends, is a little bit more on the demure side, but it's still super stylish.

Long front layers left loose around the face make just about any updo a little softer and more flattering, including this look on Cameron Diaz, which looks best with plenty of volume at the crown.

A more dramatic play on the half-up, half-down style, pulling the front layers of hair off the face while leaving the rest loose around the shoulders à la Salma Hayek is a low-key look that's still polished.

For medium-length hair, dress up a bouncy ponytail by smoothing the hair into a deep side part like Reese Witherspoon.

To draw attention to the face without opting for an updo, take Gwyneth Paltrow's lead and slick the top of the hair into a side part and the rest uniformly behind your ears.
