Rosario wore her hair in smooth, tight ringlets at The Kid’s Choice Awards in West Hollywood on March 27.

Cutest Braid: Selena Gomez
Selena wore this fun, chunky braid for the 23rd Annual Kid’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles in March.

Best Natural Style: Shakira
Shakira went for a simple yet polished look at the MTV Europe Music Awards, where she rocked her all-natural style.

Paulina worked her retro-inspired look at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in April 2010 with a heavy curled bang and loose long waves.
Best Blowout: Lea Michele
Bangs swept aside, Lea’s hair was blown out, giving it more volume and texture for the Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on August 30th.
Most Unique Updo: Ximena Navarrete
Miss Universe looked stunning with her sleek updo at this year’s Latin Grammy Awards—the one-of-a-kind style perfectly complemented her gorgeous dress.
