Ready for a new 'do, but aren't sure what clippings to bring into your salon? Hollywood A-listers and famous fashionistas have been wearing thick bangs, side pony tails

The sassy side pony tail is easy for anyone with longer hair to pull off, and won't require parting with even an inch of your locks. Just gather loosely, tie the elastic, and flip your flowing locks over your shoulder. Look at Carrie Underwood, Lauren Conrad and Ali Larter for inspiration.

The heavy bangs are a little harder to pull off and require quite a bit of commitment, but as Kate Moss, Zooey Deschanel and Liv Tyler prove, if you can make the look work, it adds instant style, whether your hair is tied up or left open. If you end up hating your chopped fringe, pinning it back is an easy fix until it grows out.

Along with the recent 40s fashions come the corresponding retro curls iconic of the times. Reese Witherspoon, LeAnn Rimes and Amy Adams all worked the look the same way -- by parting heavily on one side, tucking the thinner side behind the ear, and letting the thicker bundle of hair flow loosely along their jaw lines. Locks not so long right now? Katherine Heigl, Eva Longoria and Kristen Bell prove that shorter, pinned curls look stunning too.
