Want long, loose waves like Fergie and Avatar star Zoe Saldana? The trick is all in how you hold your curling iron. I always used to curl my hair the old-school way: by clamping a section of hair in a curling iron, then holding it horizontally while rolling it up toward my scalp. The way to get these modern loose waves is to first hold your curling iron vertically—so the tip of the iron faces the sky.

Next to a bad breakup, the start of a brand new year is the best excuse for a transformative new haircut. Case in point: Songstress and budding actress Christina Aguilera, who celebrated a new decade at Las Vegas hotspot Tao at the Venetian hotel. We are loving the shorn bob, but will still see Aguilera sporting her signature long platinum locks while she currently films the upcoming flick Burlesque with the legendary Cher.

I’m a little ashamed to admit that, until recently, I had never tried a Mirta de Perales product. I know, I know. I can't explain how this happened while growing up in a Latin household. I remember seeing Mirta de Perales commercials with the long-haired models flaunting their shiny locks on Univision, and was even surrounded by family members who lived by the famous Herbal Shampoo and Oil “N” treatment. But for some reason, I never ended up buying them.

In the winter time, hair can become dry; add the friction created when strands are rubbed against hats and scarves and you'll often have a nasty case of static cling. Here's an in-a-pinch way to calm the fly-aways: Rub a bit of hand lotion between your hands, and pass your fingers through your hair. This will tame locks, and add a touch of moisture without damaging your style.

I just saw the movie musical Nine last night. Never have I more wanted to tease my hair, put on a bustier and dance in front of a mirror then after those credits rolled! What performances from such talented chicas—specifically from Oscar winner Penelope Cruz. But being the beauty junkie that I am, I more than noticed how important a role hair played in the film.

My fine hair can get pretty greasy at times, especially at the roots. So you know what I do when I find my locks in an oily way? I take the facial blotting papers I keep in my purse and dab them onto my scalp. They absorb some of the oil from my hair and make me feel Macgyver-like smart in the process. I love the Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets ($5, drugstore.com); they’re tough enough to handle the job!
