It’s down to the top 10 contestants on The Voice, and while Coach Christina Aguilera unfortunately lost one of her team members, Josh Logan, she didn’t miss a beat when it came to her hair and styling choices. “This week it was all about a sleek, clean look,” Aguilera’s hairstylist David Babaii told InStyle.com of her straightened strands, which were a noted change from the previous week’s curls. “Last week was about show,” he continued. “Her hair had a Marilyn Monroe-inspired feel, but this week it was just about keeping it classic.” To achieve her simple style, Babaii parted her hair and blew it dry using his T3 blow dryer. He then straightened her locks with a T3 iron. “It didn’t need a lot of product!” Instead, he just used hairspray to tame the flyaways. “Christina likes hairspray, so I sprayed it all over to set the look.” For more details on why he and Aguilera decided on this week’s styles, as well as the information on her outfits, check out the gallery! And be sure to catch Christina Aguilera and her contestants battling it out against Team Blake, Adam, and Cee Lo Monday on The Voice at 8/7c on NBC.
Shailene Woodley recently lopped off her locks for her upcoming role in The Fault in Our Stars, then donated her strands to an amazing cause. But doesn’t she miss her long hair? Quite the contrary. “I love it,” she told InStyle.com at the Elle magazine Women in Hollywood event. She’s actually loving her new cropped ‘do so much, she’s toying with the idea of going even shorter. ”I want to cut it shorter, kind of want to shave it. I think it would be a fun experiment.” We can already guess that this burgeoning trendsetter will be able to carry off a closer crop if she decides to take the plunge!

We can’t help but hang on Michelle Obama‘s every style move—and this is a big one. The FLOTUS just got sun-kissed ombre highlights.

And they make us feel like summer isn’t over just yet. So, do you like the look? Tell us by voting in our poll below.

Vanessa Hudgens is the latest celebrity to jump on the blonde hair bandwagon! Last week, the 24-year old took to Tumblr and Instagram to debut her new look, but this isn’t her first time on the lighter side of the hair spectrum — the star previously went blonde for her role in 2012′s Spring Breakers, and her return to the hue is right in line with the recent ‘dos sported by Julianne Moore, Gabrielle Union, and Channing Tatum. Hudgens has always been known for her bold fashion and hair choices, so her shift in shade doesn’t come as a surprise to us. “I just don’t like staying stagnant,” the actress told InStyle.com during American Eagle’s Walk Your Walk event. “Life is about evolving and constantly growing and everything should be like that, whether it’s fashion or your view on the world or your career. You should always be growing.” That’s the spirit! Do you like her new look? Tell us in the comments!

Sarah Hyland showed up to the Los Angeles premiere of Lifetime’s film Call Me Crazy: A Five Film sporting shaggy bangs. But don’t be fooled by her fringe; the change isn’t permanent. “They’re clip on,” the Modern Family star told InStyle.com. “I put them on whenever I feel like it. If you want a little change, clip them on!” Clip-on bangs like Sarah’s can be yours too: focus on finding a color that is closest to your own, by utilizing color wheels in salons and boutiques that you can hold up to your own hair for color matching. And here’s another tip: if you can’t find a color that matches your precisely, try blending them by using a tinted dry shampoo. Bumble & Bumble has a wide range of colors; find them for $35 at bumbleandbumble.com.

When Brittany Snow arrived at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend, there was something a little different about her blonde bob, which appeared angled on one side and shorter on the other. “It’s a little fake,” Snow told InStyle.com of her style. “It’s not cut. My hair length is actually a little shorter. It’s an extension piece and then we cut it.” So smart! Why the change-up? “My [Lela Rose] dress is so classy and elegant, so I wanted to do something a little edgy with my hair,” Snow told InStyle.com. “So we decided to angle it. I thought it would be cool!” Simple enough, and it worked. If you try the look, shop for an extension that matches your hue and add texturizer to your roots before clipping it in to avoid it slipping out of place.
