Last night's American Music Awards' (AMA's) red carpet showcased some gorgeous, easy-to-create hairstyles, including the beach wave bob, sleek slicked-back styles, and stick-straight strands. Below, celebrity stylist Lea Journo shares her simple how-to guide for creating some of the night's hottest looks, seen on A-listers such as Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, and Kendall Jenner.
Get the Look: The Beach Wave Bob
"The collar bone has never seen more action than this season with this go-to cut," says Journo. "If [your client] has a natural wave, go for your handy beach spray. With a few spritz and a diffuser, [she'll be] set for the day!"
On the other hand, if [your client's] tresses need a bit of volume and curl; grab a dollop of mouse, your handy curling wand or iron and a great flexible hold spray for this look."

Get the Look: A Touch of Sleek
According to Journo, "This is the perfect go-to when that blowout isn't quite working out, or your [client] is ready to show off [a pair of] show-stopping earrings. Grab a comb and flexible hold spray for this look. A bit of teasing at the crown will elongate the face for a fresh youthful look."
Get the Look: The Straight & Narrow
"Another 'trompe l'oeil' we spotted on the carpet [last night] was a middle part," says Journo. "This look is often over-'look'ed, but was used to create a couple of the most elegant styles we saw on the carpet.
"A glossing creme with a light hold can be used to smooth straight locks to seal in this look. The middle part also elongates the face - perfect for a rounder face."
