Worn up, down or in between, a new hairstyle can instantly change your image. Ahead of the holiday party season, Us Weekly illustrates -- on Emma Watson, Kerry Washington and Lauren Conrad -- how the same cut can be worn three different ways.

IF YOU HAVE . . . SHORT HAIR LIKE EMMA WATSONSLICKED BACK: Ooh la la! The Perks of Being a Wallflower star gave her September 10 French twist a dose of rock 'n' roll by loading it with gel.
CHIC CURLS: "The look is feminine," says stylist Rodney Cutler of this September 26 'do. "Sweeping fringe accentuates cheekbones."
SHINY STRAIGHT: She nailed the part! "A deep side comb frames the face and softens features," Cutler tells Us of Watson (on September 13).
IF YOU HAVE . . . MEDIUM-LENGTH HAIR LIKE KERRY WASHINGTONCLASSIC CHIGNON: "Kerry wanted a runway-inspired look," says stylist Kiyah Wright of the Scandal stunner's September 23 undo.
EFFORTLESS UPSWEEP: Not half bad! Washington pulled hair back at the temples October 22 with a crystal-encrusted barrette.
RETRO SPIRALS: Nifty '50s! The star (on August 9) locked her tresses in place with Muze Last Look spray. ($15, kiyahwright.com)
IF YOU HAVE . . . LONG HAIR LIKE LAUREN CONRADTRENDY TOPKNOT: "Unless you're one of the lucky few who wake up with perfect hair," advises Conrad (on September 11), "know how to do a bun."
PLAYFUL PONY: Party trick: "I keep bobby pins tied with an elastic," the author (on October 22) has said. She uses them to tame flyways.
DEMURE WAVES: On October 13, stylist Kristin Ess curled Conrad's hair at eye level to "keep it elegant, not over-the-top sexy," she tells Us.
