Where: 13th Annual Warner Bros. And InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party in Beverly Hills, California.
Why: Raven’s loosely curled, one-shoulder stands are totally sexy. Get the look by setting your hair on hot rollers for big, voluminous curls.

Where: A book signing for her new book “I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down” in Chicago, Illinois.
Why: This side braid with a funky roll is oh-so-edgy. Try the look at home by adding a side part to your hair. Starting with the larger section, fold a section of hair into a roll and secure with bobby pins. Add spritz for hold and braid the hanging pieces.

Where: The Alberta Ferretti runway show during the Milan Fashion Week Autumn / Winter 2012 in Milan, Italy.
Why: Curls as perfect as Solange’s are award-winning indeed. Give your spirals some pizazz by adding a light sculpting foam on your hair before setting on flexi-rods overnight. Once the rods are removed, finger fluff for fullness.

Where: BET Honors 2012 in Washington, DC.
Why: Mrs. O took her style to new heights with this elegant updo sweetened with soft curls. Become a commander in chic by smoothing hair on both sides toward the center back of your head to create a French roll, leaving the bang and crown area loose. Use a 3/4" curling iron to create voluminous, defined curls at the top.

Where: Backstage after Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” show in New York City.
Why: Now we know why NeNe is so rich. After all, she’s got a platinum ’do that looks like a million bucks. Get the look without cutting or dyeing your hair by trying on a fierce pixie wig. Sexiness in seconds.

16 of 21

Where: The Gershwins’ “Porgy and Bess” Broadway opening night after party in New York City.
Why: Audra’s gleaming curls are the object of every girl’s affection. A high-shine sheen can be yours by first making sure that your hair is regularly conditioned and moisturized. Applying a light glosser daily will ensure your shine lasts.

17 of 21

Where: BET Honors 2012 Pre-Honors dinner at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
Why: The hostess with the mostess debuted caramel colored lowlights and they are definitely delicious. Snap in a few colored strands of your own by experimenting with clip-in hair extensions.

18 of 21

Where: 13th Annual Warner Bros. And InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party
Why: How can anyone resist Tracee’s touchable soft curls? This half-up/half-down updo is elegance at its best. Get the look by setting the hair on satin-covered sponge rollers overnight to create major curls. Once rollers are removed, simply whisk your hair over to one side and secure with bobby pins.

19 of 21

Where: Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, California.
Why: Amber’s lavish layers are enough to make anyone swoon. At your next salon visit, ask your stylist to layer your look and add a dash of spice with subtle auburn lowlights.

20 of 21

Where: BET Honors 2012 in Washington, DC.
Why: For most of 2011, we saw Kelly in bone straight strands so this free-flowing halo of ringlets is a refreshing change of pace. Get Kelly’s stunning spirals by adding virgin human hair extensions in a curly texture to match your own. We love the Bounce Coil Curl offered by Indique.

21 of 21

Where: A Knicks game at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Why: CiCi’s dramatic, two-toned tresses are enviable, to say the least. Try it out for yourself by flat-ironing your hair and blending with waist-length tracks of virgin hair extensions. Seeing as though Ciara has a simple center part, a half-wig could also give you this bold look in a flash.
