Then last night, she appeared in Los Angeles almost unrecognizable under her voluminous curls (shown). But Rihanna isn’t the only celebrity to rock big, bold hair in recent years.

Kate Hudson‘s hair always looks as effortless as it does perfect, but when InStyle caught up with the actress for our January issue, she revealed that her prep routine is actually the opposite. “I’m wearing every product on the shelf,” Hudson laughed. “Seriously, after an event it can take four washcloths to remove the ‘natural look.'” As for deciding between going for a curly or straight style: “It depends on the weather,” she said. “Unlike most women, I love the humidity. It helps enhance my natural curl.” For more Kate Hudson hair and beauty secrets, pick up the January issue of InStyle magazine, on newsstands now.

That is the perfect length to frame her face and still allow us to do updos if we want.” Campora first cut the star’s hair over the weekend, but in preparation for her appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show to promote Little Fockers yesterday, he decided to take it just a touch shorter. “Jessica trusts me, so she let me do it,” the Frederic Fekkai stylist said. “This is a new direction for her and she’s incredibly pleased with the cut.” (Indeed! Alba posted a picture on her Twitter yesterday afternoon with the message: “New haircut tweeples -thx @renatocampora.”) What do you think of the star’s swingy bob? Tell us in the comments below.
