Follow these steps to master Danes' classic updo:
Step 1: Apply blow dry lotion (try Shu Uemura Art of Hair Satin Design White Tea Polishing Milk, $30) to wet hair then blow dry your strands section by section with a round brush for a shiny, smooth finish. Create a side part.
Step 2: Loosely curl the ends of your hair (from mid-shaft down) with a medium-sized curling iron held vertically.
Step 3: Start gathering your curls to the back of your head (leaving a few face-framing layers free) and begin securing them with bobby pins. Pin all of your hair up into a chignon-like shape. Continue adding bobby pins until the style feels tight and secure. Set with hairspray (try Dove Flexible Hold Aerosol Hairspray with Natural Movement, $4.29).
Create Beckinsale's chic bun with these steps:
Step 1: Start by backcombing the front of your hair. Spritz volumizing spray like, Frederic Fekkai Full Volume Instant Root Lifting Spray, $20 on each section before teasing to get mega lift. Leave a half-inch of hair in the front hanging, and once you're done teasing, smooth that front layer over the teased area to hide it.
Step 2: Secure hair into a slick, mid-height ponytail.
Step 3: Brush the tail, spritz it with styling spray (try Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode, $25) and twist it tightly then secure it into a ballerina-like bun.
Follow these easy steps to recreate Liu's glam, curled pony:
Step 1: Apply a combo of shine serum (try Ken Paves Shine Serum, $30) and blow dry lotion (try Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion, $19.21) on wet hair, then blow dry hair straight.
Step 2: Curl the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair with a medium-sized curling iron held vertically. Mist with hairspray for hold (try Aveda Air Control Hairspray, $24).
Step 3: Finger comb your curls and secure them into an off-center low ponytail. Flip your tail onto your shoulder so it's visible from the front.
Step 4: Pull out a few face-framing pieces to add softness to the look.
