    Her dress might lean toward the '80s, but Osbourne's 'do at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles screamed '60s.

There’s nothing casual about a bouffant, but there is a spectrum on which to play when it comes to whipping your hair into a retro shape. Sarah Silverman and Rachel McAdams show off proper beehives in our trend report, while Drew Barrymore and Sophie Kennedy model subtle bumps, and Scarlett Johannson and Paloma Faith lean toward the ‘40s with pompadours. So grab a bottle of Redken’s Quick Tease Backcombing Finishing Spray, a fine-toothed comb, and click through for inspiration.
