To get Serena's Old-Hollywood waves, wrap 1" sections of your hair around large hot rollers. After they sit for 20 minutes, unroll each section and into "pin curls," pinning them on your head for another 10 mins or so. Then, gently brush through your hair and glam up any flat strands with a large curling iron.Photo Credit: The CW
A Dressed Up Pony

All Curled Up
For an elegant bun like Blair's, pull your hair into a low ponytail and curl sections of it with a curling iron. Wrap the ponytail loosely around the elastic and secure with another elastic. Pull a few strands out around your face.Photo Credit: The CW
Such a Tease!
To get Serena's teased ponytail, back-comb hair by running a brush from the bottom of the strands to the top of the pony. Do this a few times with sections of the hair, and spray with hairspray.Photo Credit: The CW
Copy Serena's loose side braid by using moose on damp hair to create waves as you blow dry. Back-comb hair to give it body. Gather hair at the nape of your neck and loosely braid it, securing it with an elastic.Photo Credit: The CW
Achieve the curly body that Serena got by spraying towel-dry hair with a curling gel. Flip head over and dry with a diffuser. Define the curls by using a 1-inch wide curling iron on sections of hair. Photo Credit: The CW
B is for Beach-y Waves
To get Blair's beachy waves, twirl sections of towel-dry hair with your fingers and rub styling cream on each. Then blow dry each section (aiming down), continuing to twirl with your fingers. Scrunch hair when done, and define curls with a medium-sized curling iron. Grab and pin a small section of hair to the top of your head with a bobby pin.Photo Credit: The CW
Get Serena's fancy braid by pulling random pencil-thin sections of your hair and creating sporadic micro-braids. Then, create a loose French braid with the micro-braids mixed in with the rest of your hair. Secure mid-way through with an elastic.
