If you're going out this weekend, you'll need a beautifully coiffed hairstyle that's ready to hit the town. The good news is that such a style doesn't have to take forever to achieve, nor does the styling technique need to be complicated. Above, you'll find a gallery of ten gorgeous celebrity looks to inspire you with styles from Cobie Smulders, Zoe Saldana , Kaley Cuoco and Jennifer Lopez.

My not-so-little pony

Rihanna and J-Lo both know a thing or two about how to make a humble ponytail look like the most glamorous thing on the planet. Whether you have curly or straight hair, these ladies have got you covered. Whichever style you go for, make sure you complete the look with a mist of high-shine finishing spray.

Your best side

Whether we're talking every last strand or just the bangs, side-swept hair is a hugely popular red carpet look. Kate Walsh and Lizzy Caplan have both been spotted with wavy styles while Kaley Cuoco's new undercut does a really great job of showing off her sleek side-parted bangs. Cobie Smulders, too, has been seen with a super sleek side-swept 'do with a bold wet-look finish.

A curling iron will give you defined curls like Kate's while salt spray will create a tousled texture like Lizzy's. If you're focusing on your bangs, a flat iron and a tiny amount of pomade will keep them just where you want them. As for Cobie's look, part your hair with a tail comb then rake some gel evenly throughout.

Up, up, up and away

A list of night out hairstyles just wouldn't be complete without a couple of updos thrown in for good measure. Zoe Saldana, Tatiana Maslany, Freida Pinto and Jemima Kirke have all mastered the art of chic chignons and pretty braided styles.

To cheat your way to an elegant low chignon of your own, tie your hair into a low pony then, when you pull it through the elastic for the last time, only pull it halfway out. Pin the resulting loop and loose ends to the back of your head in an improvised yet seemingly intricate style and fix with hairspray.
