Kesha hairstylesIf you did a double-take when you saw this image of Kesha, you're not the only one. The pop-tart looks completely different with this glamorous retro hairstyle. The long hair, soft waves and platinum hair color really suit her and blend perfectly with her toned down makeup.

Short Hair: Pink

Pink hairstylesAlways one for a funky 'do, Pink's short clipped hairdo still creates a feminine finish thanks to the volume and shape through her top section. This is great hairstyle for any upcoming parties this holiday season, and will allow you to show off some very fancy earrings. Keep your makeup color minimal to help your hair garner all the attention, and ensure your locks are healthy for the best results.

Mid-Length Hair: Zendaya Coleman

Zendaya Coleman hairstylesThis mid-length style is the perfect option for those looking for a look that is stylish but not too high maintenance. The volume ensures your locks will be full of bounce, and the side-swept fringe is the icing on the cake. If your locks are dark like Zendaya Coleman's , enhance them with the right makeup colors. The pop of pink on her lips is one of the great touches of this overall look.

Updo: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift hairstylesIf you're sick of boring updos or pulling your locks into a ponytail for the millionth time, take your styling cue from Taylor Swift and opt for an updo with some interest. The backcombing through the top that leads to the perfectly pinned bun makes for a very trendy and flattering finish, and is then topped off perfectly with her full fringe.
