And The Celebrity With The Best Hair (And Least Successful Clothing Line) Is...

Which celebrity has the most sought-after hair in Hollywood? According to Trendhunter, it's none other than Lauren Conrad. The Hills star was last week's top Yahoo search in the "hair" category, and it's not hard to see why. Her loose, casual waves and center part have timeless laid-back appeal. And you can actually get them without the help of your own personal Ken Paves.

This style works best on medium to long hair. First, blow dry, then start grabbing individual one-inch sections and mist with hairspray. Pantene's Texturize! ($4.50) works well to separate pieces without weighing hair down. Wrap each section around a large-barrel curling iron -- we like Hot Tools Big Bumper 1 1/2" Professional Marcel Hair Curling Iron ($25). Hold for a few seconds, before carefully unclamping and sliding out the hair. Repeat.

The great thing about this style is that it doesn't have to be too perfect (and it actually looks better if it's not).
