Three new ways to rock a struc­tured updo.

Pony Twist: Edgy

“The tightly wound tail of Natasha’s low-hang­ing pony gave her a strong but still fem­i­nine look while the side part and sleek­ness of the style added mod­ern edge,” says the model’s hair­styl­ist, Sasha Nester­chuk. To get the look, she smoothed hair down and se­cured it into a low pony at the nape of the neck. Next, she sep­a­rated the tail into two sec­tions, twisted one sec­tion and wrapped it once around the base and pinned it in place. Then she twisted the other sec­tion, pulled it up and looped and twirled it around it­self and pinned the ends to the base of the pony.

Back Twist: Chic

“We were aim­ing for a clas­sic movie-star el­e­gance with this com­bi­na­tion of a chignon and French twist,”says the Miss Sloane star’s hair­styl­ist, Re­nato Cam­pora, of Jes­sica’s rigidly rolled updo. His how-to: Work a dime-sized amount of vo­lu­miz­ing mousse (we like Pai-shau Royal Abun­dance Mousse, $12, through wet hair and blow- dry, then se­cure hair into a low pony with a clear elas­tic. Next, tease the tail, pull it up to­ward the sky while twist­ing , then fold it down, se­cur­ing the ends into the pony’s base. Take the folded tail and roll it in­ward hor­i­zon­tally, tuck­ing it in as you go. Se­cure with pins.

Top­knot Twist: Sexy

“A sculpted knot like Joan’s adds ma­jor drama while the height pulls the eye up for a slimming face-lift ef­fect,” says hair­styl­ist Glenn El­lis, who has worked with Olivia Wilde and Sienna Miller. His how-to: Se­cure hair into a high pony at the top of the crown. Twist the tail up tightly to cre­ate a rope-like ef­fect and tie it into a top­knot; pin in place. Then stick two bobby pins ver­ti­cally through the hair tie be­neath the knot to prop it up so it stands tall. Seal with a hair spray, like Paul Mitchell Firm Style Freeze and Shine Su­per Spray ($11, for ex­tra shine.

Tan­gle-free What’s the one prod­uct model NATASHA POLY can’t be with­out? “Con­di­tioner — I can’t stand my hair when I can’t brush it!” Dye Hard JES­SICA CHAS­TAIN loves to change up her ’ dos, but her sig­na­ture color is here to stay. “I re­al­ized [my red hair] is who I am, and my dif­fer­ences [make me] spe­cial.”

Over­achiever When it comes to hair care, JOAN SMALLS goes the ex­tra mile! “I deep- con­di­tion my hair with a mask, but in­stead of leav­ing it in for five min­utes, I leave it in the whole day.”
