We've already loaded you up on tons of dream dress inspiration this prom season, from the wallet-friendly frocks to splurge-worthy options, but you know what? Let's take a break from gowns for a sec because now it's officially time to talk hair. If you think about it, there's no better place to get prom hair ideas than from the red carpet. After all, these two events actually have a LOT in common: the search for the perfect dress, finding comfortable-but-still-chic shoes, and the inevitable time spent in front of the mirror getting ready. The only difference between us and Hollywood's "It" list is the fact that they have a team of experts helping them primp. But because we love you, we tracked down the masterminds behind some of our favorite red carpet hair looks this season from Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried, and Sarah Hyland. These pros gave us the complete breakdown on how to recreate the styles yourself as well as the products they used (although your own bathroom stash will work, too). Check out the step-by-step instructions below!

Kristen Stewart KNOWS how to get people talking, and at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards we obsessed over her tousled fishtail braid (as well as her daring short suit!). The actress's hairstylist, Adir Abergel, told us how he achieved the effortless hair look.

1. On slightly damp hair, apply Fekkai Perfectly Luscious Curls Wave Activating Spray from roots to ends.

2. Using a diffuser, blow dry hair and scrunch it with hands to create a rough, voluminous texture.

3. Next, rub a dime-size amount of Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream between your hands and sweep hair back and up off of the face.

4. Starting at the crown, create a fishtail braid down the middle of the head. Secure the end with a clear elastic band. Gently pull the braid apart for a deconstructed look and let a few pieces of hair frame your face.

5. Finish the look by misting Fekkai COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray all over to keep the style in place all night.

Mariah Carey Dreams Fragrance

Ever since Mariah Carey released her twelfth (yes, twelfth!) fragrance "Dreams" nearly a month ago, I couldn't stop thinking about it. The American Idol judge/all-around diva described the scent as a mix of vanilla, honeysuckle, and salted caramel apple, which represented her transition "from childhood to performing on the world's stage, to being in love, to feeling loved." Needless to say, I was intrigued—intrigued enough, in fact, to actually take this scent for a spin. Like, IRL. The bottle came in a purple box complete with her Category 5 wind-blown campaign photo (above) and inside lay the oh-so-fitting butterfly-adorned fragrance. Much to the avail of my nearby co-workers, I doused myself in the stinky stuff and took to the streets, er, cubicles to find out what others thought about her new scent. The catch? I didn't give them any hints as to who made it/where it came from, and this is what they said.

Selena Gomez Come & Get It Teaser

Not to be weird or anything, but we can never get enough Selena Gomez. Like, we re-watched Spring Breakers last night just to see her 'dorbs little face grace the silver screen again, and thanks to her upcoming album release, she's been teasing us all week long with her first single, "Come & Get It." So far, we peeped her SUPAH FUH-IERCE cover art where she's decked out it in a fiery red Blonds ensemble, and just today she released a 30-second preview from her upcoming music video (we think/hope) and ohmuhgah—she looks so effortlessly ethereal and gorgeous we can barely handle it.

Nicki Minaj MTV First

You might've watched the MTV First: Nicki Minaj sit down Tuesday right here on MTV.com, but there's a chance you missed the oh-so-amazing fashion info she dropped in her tell-all interview. Like, we're talking may-juh fash news here, people—deets on her debut clothing line, upcoming fragrances (!!!), and her new, toned-down look that we've been obsessed with. She said, "Towards the end of last year I just wanted to have a more natural look, and that's what I was explaining to my team. I knew that I was about to start doing covers of magazines, and I wanted a more relatable look. I knew that I was about to launch a clothing line and I want women to know that I'm just a regular woman and I'm not some weirded-out character all the time."

Odd Future Nail Art

Ever since we listened to a stream of Tyler, the Creator's new Wolf album last week, we cannot stop thinking about it. (I mean, Kanye West can't either.) To put it simply: We loved it. So much, in fact, that we wanted to celebrate the Odd Future frontman by finding the best nail art on the interwebs in his honor. Yeah, sure, it may not be Tyler's idea of the most fun way to celebrate his newest album release, but we couldn't help but notice all the killer nail designs dedicated to the OFWGKTA crew. We're particularly obsessed with this set featuring the iconic OF donuts, Shark Cat, upside-down crosses, box-cutter detailing and, of course, the words "Golf Wang." *claps*

Demi Lovato

We initially thought Demi Lovato's "Heart Attack" single art was edgy, but our girl really outdid herself for her DEMI album. Miss Lovato first teased the art this morning with a tweet directing her fans to a site where they could "scratch" to reveal the full photo. Several clicks and nine panels later, Demi serves excellent smoldering face for the album cover, clad in little more than black lipstick and smudgy silver body paint.

Justin Bieber

Dear Justin Bieber,

Listen, man. We know you're super busy on your Believe World Tour. And we know you're going to be saddled up on that grind through the summer. We're fully aware that your voice and your ability to perform are your livelihood, so you need all the free moments you can get to rest up and take care of those golden pipes and fancy feet. (Can we say you have fancy feet?) BUT BIEBS! (Can we call you Biebs?) Your HAIR is totally another huge part of your miraculous YouTube-to-international-superstar fame machine. You've since shed the 360-swoop "Bieber Hair" of your youth, but that hasn't altered our fascination with your locks' every windswept switch and product-aided kick-ball-change. That's why we're humbly asking you this teeny, tiny, truly infinitesimal favor: can you, like, start a morning hair Tumblr already, or what?

Lauren Conrad

Not to be weird, but we're kiiind of Lauren Conrad hair experts. Over the past couple years, we followed the former Hills star as she dyed her strands from blue to green to everything in-between, and just today Lauren debuted bright pink locks! Judging by her Instagram, it looks like she and a friend traveled to India or Nepal for the annual Holi Festival (aka the festival of colors), which is celebrated by throwing colored water or powder at each other. It looks like LC got some direct hits as the party went down because she posted a pic of her face completely covered in green and red paint. As it turns out, the paint didn't wash out as planned (oops!), and LC was accidentally left with bright pink strands. She Instagrammed a photo of her hair with the caption, "So apparently it doesn't wash out... Looks like I'm sporting pink locks for the rest of this trip."

Dakota fanning

Colorful ombre hair was THE beauty trend of summer 2012, with fans like Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and Dakota Fanning riding this rainbow wave throughout the season (and inspiring everyone else to do the same!). But while Demi and Sel may have reverted to more natural shades after a few weeks, Dakota's clearly still feeling her pink hue from last year— so much so, that she's brought it back! It's hard to believe that it was last January when we first spotted the Very Good Girls actress showing off her dip-dyed watermelon locks out and about in Los Angeles. Keeping the rest of her hair a natural blonde, this ends-only approach gave the star an effortlessly edgy vibe that's wearable enough for everyone too nervous to go all the way. In other words, this 'do is an image practically cemented into our memories, so it's no huge shock that this recent snap of Dakota working an identical style naturally caused a double take.

There are bazillion things in this world we can think of that are better than nails on a chalkboard *shudders at just having to TYPE it*, but nothing quite directly offsets it like Ciaté's forthcoming Chalkboard Manicure. A product of the UK-based nail juggernaut, the Chalkboard Manicure is the latest of Ciaté's line of Wow Kits—a series of box sets including all the necessary elements you'll need to achieved highly-specialized, bonkers-looking styles like their caviar and colourfoil manicures.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
